That is a stupid, bigoted, fear mongering title and fully displays the asinine thinking of the rednecks here in Texas. It is ridiculous to keep pandering to the mental miscreants and evangelicals that are nothing but a bunch of poorly educated fools that are led around by the likes of Rush Limburger and his buddies.

People are preparing for the day when the money printing stops or can't keep up with the costs of commodities and the demoCRAPS plantation dwellers are suddenly dealing with a dried-up gov't teat. Where will they look then for necessities; to anyone who has anything!!
