I was watching the Purge again last night with the kids, love that move! And it got me thinking. If the Purge was real, how would my family fare? How would yours?

For anyone who doesn't know. In the year 2022, the United States has become "a nation reborn" thanks to the New Founding Fathers of America. Crime and unemployment rates are hitting an all-time low due to the government having instituted an annual 12-hour period called "the Purge" during which all criminal activity (including murdertheft, and rape) becomes legal. The only rules during the Purge are that government officials of "ranking 10 or higher" must remain unharmed and usage of weaponry above "Class 4" (such as WMDs) is forbidden. Additionally, the police and emergency services are suspended during this time and anyone who doesn't follow the rules of the Purge will receive the death penalty. The Purge is designed to act as a catharsis for the American middle and working classes, so that they may vent all negative emotions and repressed urges however and on whomever they desire, although it is implied throughout the film that the Purge is really just a method of population control, allowing the weeding-out of the impoverished and other people who are seen as a burden on the economy and society in general.

For us I'm thinking we'd invest in some guns and training then the week of the purge we'd go on a family camping trip with everyone i love and hole up someplace remote until it was over.

I know of at least one person who, given the opportunity, would like to kill me.  My family as a whole, though, would probably be fine.

While I would not target anyone myself I would make it through just fine. I have no problem defending myself and my family with deadly force if it is truly neccassery and in this case it would be.

For real? Who?

Quoting Mrs.Kubalabuku:

I will not have a temper tantrum nor stomp across the floor.


I will not pout, scream or shout or kick against the door.

I will not throw my food around nor pick upon another.

I’ll always try to be real good because I am the mother.

I am the mother.

I am the mother.

Wasn't this a Star Trek episode in the 60s?  Landreu?

 Well I live remote. I've got the infrastructure. We have a fence that looks like a prison because of our dogs. Oh did I mention the big ass dogs? Did I mention the guns? We got that.

I have the perfect disposition to become a serial killer. To say I'd murder to protect mine is an understatement.

I would just go to our cabin in New Mexico for a couple of days.

My dd had me dyin'! LOL We were talking about our neighbors who hate us. She said they wouldn't mind killing us but we'd get them first. Then she goes on how she'd kill them.

The 10yo she'd just push over, the 15yo she'd slap, then the mom, she'd lure her with twinkies and then chop off her head.
