Headlines from the Washington Free Beacon:
Treasury Department Seeking Survival Kits For Bank Employees
Emergency masks, solar blankets to be delivered to every major bank in the U.S.How much time does our shell of a financial system have left?
Update: Here's a link to the actual RFP. It's legit.
A couple of additional thoughts:
If Treasury wants to buy survival kits for regulators, fine. But why is government apparently seeking acquisitions for banks as well?
It's also interesting that government ramps up these kinds of preps on the inside, yet there's no campaign to raise the general public's level of preparedness.
In the old days, there were common themes along the lines of Civil Defense is for everyone.
Is it now just bureaucrats and their commercial cronies that government advises to get ready?
