Largest Military Convoy Since World War 2 To Hit Colorado Highways For ‘Raider Focus’ War Games

(Source: From The Trenches) – According to The Gazette in Colorado, something very unusual is about to happen – by some accounts, the largest military convoy since World War 2 will soon take place; more than 4,000 soldiers and more than 300 Stryker armored vehicles and other rigs from Fort Carson will participate in a road trip from May 26th to May 30th to the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site where soldiers will take part in a simulated war called ‘Raider Focus’. For days, the highways of Colorado will be packed with not only 300 Strykers but hundreds of other military trucks and humvees, taking off every half hour during convoy days and consisting of dozens of 15 to 30 vehicle convoys rather than just one huge US Army parade, for the 4 hour road trip.

This is the future of meat

WEB Notes: The day I eat meat out of a lab is right after the children of Satan and their buddies do. Until then don’t tell us how we need to do this to save the planet. Don’t ask someone to do what you are not willing to do yourself. Christ set that example for us didn’t He…

(Source: Washington Post) – Meat — despite popular movements to decrease the amount humans consume — is still a central part of diets around the world. People who live in industrial countries (like the United States) eat roughly 210 pounds of it each year. And consumption in the developing world, where people eat closer to 66 pounds each year, is climbing fast. Growth is such that by 2030 the average human is expected to consume just under 100 pounds per year, 10 percent more than today.
