No FEMA camps near Medford

I have a question that is alarming and concerns many. FEMA camps are set up all over the U.S. for crisis situations. They have cement floors and high fences with barbed wire on top pointing in to keep people in. They have turnstiles that only go in and fences inside fences. There are gas lines going to huge incinerators. For what? This all looks like concentration camps like they had in Germany to me. There is one very near Medford and one on the California side down from Klamath Falls. What is it?

— June H., Gold Beach

That all sounds interesting, but there are no Federal Emergency Management Agency concentration or internment camps in the U.S., or anywhere else on the planet, June.

And definitely none near Medford or Klamath Falls.

It is a conspiracy myth that refuses to die, even though it has been debunked by responsible folks on both sides of the political aisle. FEMA also has rejected the claim as ludicrous, but that just gives conspiracy theorists more ammo.

The conspiracy floating around the Internet perpetuates the story that FEMA is building these places, supposedly in preparation for declaration of martial law. Those who subscribe to the theory say it is to have places to put those opposed to the creation of a one-world government.

We here at SYA's Small Government Works Best Center find it hard to comprehend how FEMA, which displayed such ineptitude during Hurricane Katrina, could ever pull off such a plan on a national scale.

We put it in the same loony bin with the black helicopter conspiracy of a few years ago and the claim that extraterrestrials landed in Roswell, N.M., back in the early 1950s.
