From Joan, of the Brady Campaign, Joyce Foundation, and the Million Mom March.
No I don’t carry a sleeping bag in my car. No I have never been stranded on a road at night. I try not to be driving out in places away from traffic late at night. That is how I suppose I have survived as long as I have. I really don’t know anyone who carries a sleeping bag in their car. Band aids and first aid kit, yes. It’s a wonder I’m still alive isn’t it???
How about that “I try not to be driving out in places away from traffic late at night” bit. This is the standard issue “Let them Eat Cake” idea of the anti-freedom crowd. THEY live in all-white gated communities of affluent limousine liberals, so they don’t need guns. Those poor single Moms living in a high-rise in an inner city with a next door neighbor whose prime vocation is “Slinging Crack Rock”, well she should just move out to the Hamptons, where things are much safer!
I have thankfully never been stranded, but I’ve come close a few times. I don’t carry a sleeping bag, but I do have a TON of blankets in the back of my truck (mostly used to protect goods from bouncing around, or if I need something to lay down if I need to crawl under my truck….but they can be used for insulation. I also have a mylar space blanket that rolls up really small, and those bastards will get you SWEATING, especially if you close yourself off in the passenger compartment of your vehicle. I don’t have food or water, but that’s only because I don’t offroad, so in all the places I might get stuck I shouldn’t be more than 48 hours alone, and for that I can do without food, and in New England water isn’t really scarce.
But note the matter-of-fact nature of her statement. In the blog she claims that somebody with a gun and a first-aid kit was “Planning something big”….I also have a first aid kit in my truck too….and a gun. I’m planning on going to work….is that big?
Also Joan’s never seen anybody stranded? Hasn’t seen anybody, or will never HELP anybody who’s stranded.
Frankly that’s wise if you’re a meek old liberal who doesn’t carry a gun….
