      Just out of curiosity – prepare for what kind of even exactly? Earthquake? Fire? Rising tides? Power outage? Heart attack? Stroke? Not sure exactly what they’re getting us ready to prepare for?

            I love it when the ridiculous Right live in NYC and complain about the “looney left”

            It warms my leftist heart.

            Welcome to Trump’s insanity.

            Re: “…if one of the looney leftists is elected.”

            Joe Biden is a “looney leftist”?
            Pete Buttigieg is a “looney leftist”??
            Elizabeth Warren is a “looney leftist”???

            The only real “Looney” is a certain lying, bullying, semi-literate, dishonest, possible Manchurian Candidate former tv “star”.

            Let us pray that we can tell him in 2020 “You’re Fired !”

      Would be interested in doing this, but why during the work-week and why during the day?
      Not offering more class options of evening and/or weekends is disappointing.

      Great idea. Kit is a great idea also. However, can this seminar be given a second time. Some of us take vacation around Labor Day and would like to take this seminar.

    4. Abolish Ice says:

      It’s called a CITIZEN Preparedness Corps Kit. So are undocumented persons allowed to attend or is this just an I.C.E. sting operation?

      • THINK !!! says:

        “Abolish I.C.E. ??!

        Hmmm…suppose YOU were a Latinx (PC gender-neutral) person living here many years, hopefully legally, working and just-about getting-by but knowing your kids will do much better, maybe even go to college.

        And now, with I.C.E. gone, here comes waves of desperately-poor immigrants eager to work, EVEN AT A MUCH LOWER PAY THAN YOU’RE GETTING!

        As long as they can do the same work, your company will happily hire them and fire you!
        Now how are you gonna make the rent, buy your kids clothes, etc.?

        Hmmm…super-libruls, have you ever thought about this scenario?
