I recently had lunch with a friend of mine. We both worked together for the same comapny for over 30 years, so you could say I know this man pretty good. We share similiar views on the future of the US, and discuss what we think is going to happen. The interesting part came when he talked a little about his son. His son is in the military, and has been for 20 plus years. His area of expertice is computers. Plus, he has a high level of security clearance. Obviiously, his son can't tell him anything too much of what he does, or sees, but after a trip to New York city, some interesting tid bits came out in a casual conversation. His son mentioned being in a very large underground facility, and seeing lots of left over supplies from the cold war era. with these supplies were old cb type radios commonly used during that time, for local communication. My question that comes to mind, is why would they keep that "old" outdated type stuff around, when the best of high tech is available.??? My answer is, that they know what type of solar, sun spot activity is coming, and the old, non solid state type stuff will still work after the solar flares have done their deed. That's the only answer I could come up with. I'm sure many of the "in the know" people are arare of what's coming, and are getting prepped for the event. One other recent news item that caught my eye. The local paper showed a picture that a new NASA satelite had taken of a solar flare recently. This satelites sole stated purpose is to take pictures of solar flares. It takes a long time to manufacture a satelite, so the government has ben planning for this satelite a long time. Do you also find it a little curious that NASA would launch this satelite now, and publically state that it's sole purpose is to take pics of solar flares???? My line of thinking tells me that we are going to be having trouble with solar flares in the near future. And all these underground bases that we already know about are being prepped for the elites. The powers that be have a good idea about how bad it's going to get. Since we already have had flare attacks in the past, and have real world evidence as to how bad they can be, we better take notice. What do you guys think????
