Gov-ment now is training to counter zombie threat
WOW apparently someone thought it would be a good idea if say 1,000 gov ment employees partyed on a island under the pretense that they would be par-taking into training against get this !!!!!!!
zombies ??? and that preparing against zombies would somehow be a teachable moment for the american public and the federal employees taking part ?
So zombies will invade get this some summit on an island resort called paradise point ?
How bout instead we fly them to the coldest parts of the antartic and watch them counter-terrorize their ways out of not becoming freezer pops as they land frozen stiff... hey that way we can add or create another 1,000 jobs that would suddenly be vacated as it would be about as likely that any training to ward off zombies would come to any beneficial use other than allowing these guys to spend days on most likely a paradise island under the pretense they are training.
“No one knows what the zombies will do in our scenario, but quite frankly, no one knows what a terrorist will do,” Barker told the AP. “If a law-enforcement officer sees a zombie and says, ‘Freeze, get your hands in the air!’ what’s a zombie going to do? He’s going to moan at you. If someone on PCP or some other psychotic drug is told that, the truth is he’s not going to react to you.”
When it launched its awareness campaign last year on a zombie apocalypse, the CDC used it as a chance to encourage Americans to be prepared for any unexpected emergency.
“We have a very small office and an equally small budget,” Maggie Silver, a CDC official, told ABC News. “So we had to do something that wasn’t going to take a lot of manpower or dollars.”
The CDC recommended doing things such as stocking up on water (one gallon per person per day), food (nonperishable items you eat regularly), tools like duct tape, a battery-powered radio, and blankets.
Last month, the Department of Homeland Security released its own tongue-in-cheek webinar about zombie preparation as an “effective way of engaging new audiences,” as one FEMA official noted.
The CDC zombie campaign grew out of an effort “to spice up our general preparedness message,” added Ms. Silver. “We decided, why not give people what they want?”
Apparently this is proof that we are funding our government way too much in that we can afford to have 1,000 soldiers, cops, firefighters, and other state and federal employees to react to such zombies.
Really, maybe next year we can prepare to combat leprechauns or maybe against vampires.
Lets simply increase the tax rates on the super rich so that we can prepare to combat the up-coming zombie infestation.
Or maybe we can test all these subjects by flying c-130's and dropping insane amounts of cocaine and other psychodelic drugs to see who partakes or becomes affected.
Perhaps maybe just maybe if we were to cut back on needless gov agencies and gov-ment middle managers who do next to nothing, we could maybe let the private sector keep more of their money so that we can with our own money buy the recommended extra containers of water, non-perishable food, and blankets or maybe a few weapons to protect ourselves against a stupidly over taxing over spending gov-ment bent on making the zombie apocolypse possible.
