    What about laws against "hoarding" in an emergency? If that isn't nationalizing your personal pantry, what is?
    Socialists like Obama would start a rationing program just like his socialist hero FDR.

    Re: Executive Order -- National Defense Resources Preparedness

    This thread is beyond absurd at this point. "I'm just saying it seems suspicious."
    "What seems suspicious?"
    "The things in the bill"
    "There's nothing suspicious there"
    "Ah, denial"

    This is classic Glen Beck argumentation. The whole "I'm just asking the questions" approach is used because those "asking the questions" are aware of the fact that they're arguing for something that has no basis in fact. This is the age of information, and unfortunately, a lot of the first reporting comes from social networks and people who have no idea what they're talking about. They skim through a law, propose some conspiracy theory, and suddenly it's trending and millions of people believe it just because the guy on Twitter who works at Best Buy came up with his faulty interpretation of a law or EO before the experts looked it over and wrote a fair analysis. It's such a waste of time, seriously.

    basically, this is just another chicken-little paranoia Conspiracy Theory thread.
    Well, that's not entirely accurate.

I have absolutely no idea what you're trying to say here, maybe you can enlighten me in regard to how FDR's executive order is related to the Obama EO that this thread is about.

    When we start throwing around conspiracy theories about the government trying to throw American protesters into FEMA camps, we get further away from the legitimate discussions we should be having.
    Interesting. Neither John Turley or Glenn Greenwald is a conspiracy theorist.

    But, if that helps you to ignore the evidence...

    believing in paranoid & ignorant conspiracy theories, makes one a conspiracy theorist.
