Is the government building secret bunkers?

There seems to be alot of hype lately about bunkers, fallout shelters, and the government building it's own secret hideaways. Is it true? Is the US government building more secret installations across America in case of a doomsday scenario, or is it just a bunch of paranoid people spreading fear?

There is nothing new in this. All of this was discussed long before you or I were born. And in my case that is saying something.

You must understand that all you can expect here, or anywhere else for that matter, is uninformed opinions. The people that really know aren't talking, and the rest will believe anything they want.

It's the way of the world Outlander. I've seen tunnels in Vietnam that were 7 stories deep and heard of deeper.

Makes sense to protect oneself from danger before it comes; not start diggin' afterward.

The U.S. is not the only country building them trust me. Not sure everyone involved would agree it has any " doomsday" implications though. Seems I remember reading something about this in Science Digest or another publication several years ago. Don't recall it being all that big a secret.

Wasn't the first one built in around 1770 at the fort in New York harbor?

That's a sentence well worth remembering next time you read some seemingly outlandish claim by anyone on the Internet.

The "end of the world is nigh" philosophy has been a driving force with some sections of the community for at least 5000 years. I blame the Egyptians with their pyramids.

You gotta love the doomsayers.

Think back just a few years and you'll remember they were all saying:

"The worlds going to end in the year 2000"

It didn't.

When we all woke up Jan 1/2000 they started saying, "Oh, small mathematical error in the calendar, it's actually going to end in 2001. On Jan 1/2001 they said, oops, another miscount, we actually meant 2007. On Jan 1/2007 they said, "Oh no wait, according to the Mayan calendar, it's going to end in 2012"

You notice they never shut up when proven wrong. They just blame someone, or something else, and pick another date randomly out of a hat.

These are the folks that wear tinfoil hats to keep the aliens from scanning their brains (sorry folks, hate to break it to you but even if the aliens were actually scanning human brains they'd skip your obviously inadequate and underequipped empty heads).

There will always be the paranoid doomsayers in our world. Other than something to laugh at (they ARE hilarious) , I have no use for them and waste not a second listening to them and even less time believing them.

There have been, and likely always will be people building bomb shelters in their backyards. I have no doubt there are many underground goverment bunkers around the world. After all, the world is full of paranoid people and the more powerful they are, the more paranoid they seem to be.

I love a secret underground city that comes with a map and web page. That'll fool 'em every time.

Never got one from peeing on a tree. I am assuming you did? Got a thing for knot holes? Or maybe rough bark? Looking for a wood pecker?
