Operation Tiger emulates military control of local, elected officials.
August 13, 2013
A U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations (CA & PSYOP) Command battalion recently practiced joint control of a small town with local authorities in a “realistic training exercise.”
According to an article released by the army, 22 soldiers of the 432nd Battalion unloaded their Humvees in Gillett, Wisconsin and set up a forward operating base at the Oconto County Fairgrounds in order to “conduct assessments” on some of the surrounding cities and to meet with “local key leaders.”
For the drill, the battalion apparently found it necessary to find a small, rural community with complete, working infrastructure such as:
– Garbage and recycling pickup
– Police and fire departments
– A dentist
– A chiropractor and
– An optometrist
All of which would be difficult to find in a war-torn city in Iraq or Afghanistan.

The Army has apologized for turning Port Angeles, Washington, into a simulated war zone and terrorizing residents on Thursday.
Frightened residents called police in the small city and complained about low flying Chinook helicopters. According to Peninsula Daily News, noise and lights panicked horses and other livestock.
Uninformed residents took to Facebook and Twitter and posted messages speculating the helicopters were involved in a drug raid or other police activity.
“No one had any warning about the helicopters, no one said anything afterwards, and today city officials had to spend hours just trying to find out what had happened — who had invaded Port Angeles,” said Port Angeles Mayor Cherie Kidd.
….as insurance rates double or triple for those who choose to take care of their health

According to an analysis just published by the Wall Street Journal, healthy people will pay double or triple their current health insurance rates under Obamacare. Rates for those with chronic disease, however, will be reduced as all the healthy people subsidize their disease lifestyles.
The net effect is that people who choose to follow a healthy lifestyle — eating well, taking nutritional supplements, exercising and avoiding junk foods — will be financially punished by the federal government while those who choose to follow a disease and sickness lifestyle — eating junk foods, taking meds, refusing to exercise, etc. — will be rewarded by government.
This is the essence of socialized medicine: punish responsible citizens while rewarding those who refuse to take care of their health.
