"Safe Spaces" for the Rich and Famous
« on: September 28, 2016, 10:34:52 AM »
“…sales at the most upscale end of the market — mainly to actors, pro athletes and politicians (who require signed NDAs) — have increased 700 percent this year compared with 2015, and overall sales have risen 150 percent.”


You can run, but you can't hide.  Sooner or later you'll have to emerge from your little rathole.  When you do, there'll be a lot of folks waiting for you.  They won't like you very much.  See: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/bunker-builders-anticipate-lucrative-trumpocalypse-932748

There can be a false sense of security with these bunkers. I've been in two "Nuclear Proof" bunkers for work in a previous life.  And you can certainly survive a lot in them.  But not forever. And not without utilities long term.  Like small family Oklahoma storm shelters, there are limits to living underground, even with a bowling alley.  And if you have an underground garage as shown in one pic, that also means an 'outsider' can likely get in. The more serious the threats, fewer and smaller openings become more appropriate.

You can try to hide but getting out (with or without your sanity) isn't guaranteed.

Maybe pick up a surplus missile silo some where and convert it.

By just reading the title, I thought this tread was about those places at schools and universities where crybabies can hide when someone disagrees with them.  :th_thicon_question:
"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
- Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776

Reading through the article, I think Trump is just a convenient "cover story" for these people.

I think a lot of liberals are more worried about terrorist attacks and civil unrest,
but can't say those things out loud or risk being hurt financially.

Let's face it, Juan Williams got canned from PBS just for admitting that if he is getting on a plane and sees a young Muslim man getting on the same plane, he feels a little nervous.
