You have a hell of a lot of faith in the government.
I might be inclined to agree that WorldNetDaily is fear-mongering if the guy who proposed H.R. 645 (to build six regional “National Emergency Centers” that appear to be detention camps), Rep. Alcee Hastings, hadn’t told ABC News that people who carry guns and hunt (i.e., Sarah Palin) are probably OK with killing blacks and Jews, too.
Remember, Megan, this is the same government that once dosed unwitting subjects with LSD and plutonium in the name of national security. And considered shooting down a domestic airliner and blaming it on Cuba to justify war on Castro. And deliberately misrepresented reports from the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964 to justify an all-out war in Vietnam.
So yes, questioning the need for facilities “capable of meeting for an extended period of time the housing, health, transportation, education, public works, humanitarian and other transition needs of a large number of individuals” isn’t as “lunatic” as you think. Especially when the idea is proposed by a guy who apparently thinks anyone with a hunting rifle belongs to the KKK.
