Can You Survive the Mean Streets?

Surviving the wilderness can be a cinch compared to many parts of a large city. As the Obama depression spreads and deepens, a lot of people currently living on the edge will begin to get desperate. Desparate people do desparate things. If you happen to find yourself in the path of desparate persons, you may wish that you had spent more time preparing. Because, when the time comes, it is unlikely that your pleas or excuses will help you.
It's a sticky Saturday morning and I'm handcuffed in the back seat of a Jeep Grand Cherokee parked on the side of a Philadelphia street. On one side of me is my boyfriend, Bruce, and on the other his best friend, Nick. Both of them are also cuffed—and like me, sweating like pigs. I reach into my hair and pull out a bobby pin that within seconds I've fashioned into a simple device I use to jimmy open my handcuff locks. Our assignment now is to evade 12 professionally trained trackers in a 25-square-block area for the next eight hours.

It may be hard to believe, but we asked for this. Actually, we paid for it: $550 apiece.

Today is the final day of a three-day "Urban Escape and Evade" course offered by onPoint Tactical LLC, a New Jersey-based company that teaches soldiers, police officers, and, increasingly, civilians urban survival skills.
Urban survival, escape, and evasion courses are popping up across US cities, as more residents of the US begin to understand where the Obama reich is headed. Under a regime of corruption and fascist social corporatism, large numbers of unfavoured and unconnected people will be left to fend for themselves.

Anyone who has lived in Mexico and other parts of the third world understands the fear of kidnapping and drug violence. Soon those living in the US will learn what living in the third world is like, courtesy of Brocko Bomba, aka "The Messiah", and "The Godfather."

Hmmmm. I wonder if they teach getting out of bad situations with hands secured behind the back.
