FromMichigan Messenger we learn that if you’re rich enough, dog gone it, you will survive that next disaster…
A retired general now working for a controversial private security
company told an audience last night about the services the company

such as Triple Canopy and Blackwater.
Belknap said she is particularly disturbed by Sovereign Deed claims
that they will have access to advance intelligence on security threats.
She said she is concerned with the privatization of security
