Prepper News Watch for April 17, 2013

Prepper News Watch

More of the same. Leaders are still incompetent. Economy still looks bleak. Politicians stil trying to take away our Constitutional freedoms.

What strikes me is that the governmental authorities have been very quiet about who they think is responsible for the bombing. Oh, the media is all about placing blame at right-wingers, though they haven’t a shred of evidence to support their opinions. My take is that the government is staying quiet on who to blame until they have more information, knowing that bombings are more likely to be used by the extreme left and don’t want to step on anyone’s toes right now. Which is stupid. Anyone that bombs the innocent deserves nothing less than to be locked up in a cold, damp dungeon, regardless of who they are.
