During my normal morning coffee fix I had a though provoking conversation with an old friend. He said that he and a group of people purchased a 45 ft. schooner to sail out of the U.S. because he thinks things are going to get bad here. Now, this would mean little to me if it were anyone else but he is a former military intel guy who still has contacts with .gov. He told me to get a foreign passport if at all possible and to have enough cash to get the hell out of here if need be. He would'nt say much else, but something is really bothering him. He also told me of a few safe places I could go where I could contact him and get out if something happend. I post this in tin foil because he gave no proof of his wory and would'nt say much about what he is worried about, I simply thought I would give my fellow monkeys a heads up for what it is worth. I am trying not to an alarmist but something stinks.
