Have you noticed all of the birthers who have disappeared into FEMA detention camps over the past 6 years? Me neither. Nevertheless, right-wing nut jobs continue to predict that it is only a matter of time before Obama declares martial law and puts all of the freedom-loving patriots in these camps, or kills them and buries them in FEMA coffins.
