I am asking for Mods to make this a sticky!

This is important! It appears that they are marking homes, for the case of martial law, so the troops taking over get a signal for how to treat the homeowners.

According to the video red= kill, pink= leave them alone, blue=taking them to FEMA re-education camps.

People in the USA and reading this forum should get the chance to atleast hear about this and check their postboxes.

Ya those are real. They are all over my neighborhood. When I was a little kid I would run around and put them on my chest too look like a General :p

I've seen, 4 pointed ones. Different colors like blue, green, and yellow.

Mine was red. Elderly Couple next to us was red, then our new neighbors are yellow (or orange, depending on your opinion).

My parents said it was for the postal people to know when to put a newspaper in the newspaper box. Made sense to me then, but who knows :confused:

What are you implying?

I cut the dot so you could see it was a simple reflector dot with adhesive on the back.

My neighbor has a square one. I don't know what the difference is.

http://www.pbn.4mg.com/tacmars.html

from http://tinwiki.org/wiki/Tacmars

Tacmars are "tactical markings" that will be used by an invading UN Army that will try to take over the United States and put it under internationalist control.

Marker Description

The markers are reflective stickers that are put on the backs of highway and roadway signs. The stickers are used to communicate tactical information to the UN army as it invades and conquers the US, pointing out military installations, areas that can be used as concentration camps and processing centers, and even useful heliports for the ubiquitous black Helicopters. Communication is effected by placing multiple stickers in different coded patterns

The stickers themselves have the outward appearance of US Department of Transportation stickers.

It does seem interesting, but if its going on for years, im pretty sure its to do with news paper delivery.....

I dont think the military needs to identify peoples houses by colored dots...........THAT CAN EASILY BE REMOVED OR SWAPPED TO A DIFFERENT COLOR...

dont you think?

Have you guys recently had the stickers stuck on there?

You could always swap with your neighbour or friend, see if you get each others papers ;) Its not just mailboxes , similar stickers have been seen on the back of roadsigns throughout the US since 911 :confused::)

Stinky Katz If no one knows in your area what these stickers are for, perhaps you could call the local post-office, & see if they have an answer. I'm very interested in what this is about......could be something to do with junk-mail or something "innocent":D

Just got back. I saw lots of these stickers, as expected. I only found these stickers on newspaper boxes, not the actual mailbox. I'll try calling the newspaper company later today and the post office to see if they have any "information" about them.

BTW, these have been around before 911.

Here is a whole bunch of pictures I just took.

I read somewhere this is nonsense and only for magazine subscriptions. Someone tested it by swapping them and then realized he got the wrong mag and visa versa!!

That wouldn't make sense, because magazines put the name of the person with the street address on the magazine.

hmmm

How long have people had stickers on their mailboxes for?? Someone said they remember seeing them when they were a kid., that was a little early for the government to start preparing no? or were they introduced early so they we wouldn't question them and it would be normal?

If it has been going on for years i find it hard to believe. Although if they have just started appearing now, its more interesting,

Some people have more than 1 sticker on their mailbox.... won't this make things a little confusing for the military?? =/

I'm finding this very hard to believe,

Like I said before, people could just SWAP or REMOVE the stickers

Cant any of you who live next door to people with different color sticker, ask you neighbor what magazines and news papers they receive. And if you get the same newspapers to them , but you have a different sticker then, yes maybe it is something to look into.


thanks

No stickers here so far in my area in Ireland. Only new stickers in my area are my 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB! and FLUORIDE IS POISON! stickers. I will look out for the aforementioned stickers though. Thanks for posting. This is an extremely interesting thread and deserves my seal of approval :)

More than 8 or 9 years.

Lots of undercover things have been going on for years.

I'm pretty sure the military could figure it out :p

Interesting post:
Alex Jones spoke about these lists, said they were in place, I also read a report that they would be turning up in the dead of night at certain homes and collecting those on the blue list and executing on the spot red list members. Not sure weather to take this seriously, but never rule it out.

We had a green dot show up on our mail box over the weekend. drove around the neighborhood, looked at 161 boxex, 129 had stickers of various colors. red, greenish blue, yellow, white. Called the post office where I know everyone, they said they had nothing to do with it, and that no one was allowed to put anything on them. I also called the sherriff, cencus breau, newspaper, fire dept. None of them knew anything about it. The post office is looking into it. I don't know about any of you, but I don't like it one bit!As for magazines ect., we have no subscriptions to anything.

Website promotes red dots to stop junk mail
Little-known Canada Post policy has existed for more than 10 years
Last Updated: Thursday, January 31, 2008 | 8:26 AM PT
CBC News

A Vancouver businesswoman is launching a new campaign to help people who want to cut down on junk mail.

The Red Dot Campaign aims to draw attention to a little-known Canada Post policy that allows people to stop unaddressed junk mail arriving in their mailbox or dropping through their mail slot.

A red dot on your mailbox is one way of telling Canada Post you don't want junk mail, according to the Red Dot Campaign website.
(Red Dot Campaign) Beth Ringdahl was once a mainstream marketer but has now gone green. She says companies use massive amounts of paper on flyers that many Canadians never read.

That's why she's now spending $3,500 of her own marketing company's money to launch the Red Dot website to help others stop junk mail.

"A red dot is what Canada Post uses to officially mark houses who have opted out," Ringdahl told CBC News on Wednesday.

All it takes is a letter and a red dot
Opting out of junk mail from Canada Post is actually a two-stage process, according to the Red Dot website.

First, residents need to write a letter to Canada Post indicating they no longer wish to receive unaddressed mail at their home. A downloadable version of the letter is available on the Red Dot Campaign website.

Then Canada Post will place a red dot on their mailbox or mail slot, according to Ringdahl, to remind the letter carrier they have opted out.

"It's just a way to say if you're not going to take the time to ever read your junk mail, why would you just accept that, day after day, you have that litter to come home to?" said Ringdahl.

Despite the fact that Canada Post has offered the opt-out program for more than 10 years, the corporation says only two per cent of Canadians use it.

Studies show most people actually want to receive the unaddressed mail, Canada Post spokeswoman Lillian Au told CBC News.

"From our studies, 98 per cent of people want to receive unaddressed ad mail because we are delivering important information government information, information about their community," said Au.

"You can't selectively say I don't want this. It's all or nothing," said Au.

But according to Ringdahl, that's not true.

'Simple action'
Even if residents stop the delivery of unaddressed mail, Canada Post will still deliver some unaddressed items, such as community newspapers and letters from the House of Commons, provincial and municipal electoral offices and Elections Canada, her website says.

The actual reason so few people stop delivery is because it's almost impossible to find the opt-out instructions on Canada Post's website, said Ringdahl, and that's why she set up her own.

"I think it's just giving people a simple action they can take. I know I'm having fun doing this. We can make a difference if we work together and see how we can run our businesses better," she said.

"By opting out, we are hoping to urge advertisers to adopt more eco-friendly advertising strategies," said Ringdahl.

ARE YOU FREEKING NUTS??? Or can't you read? These stickers come in 5 different colors, and are showing up out of nowhere. I have not chosen to opt out and have a sticker placed on my mail box. I do not and never have received delivery of a newspaper, magazine, or anything else. Some son of a bitch is going around putting stickers on mail boxes and I want to know why!!! I want to know who!!!

We had an orange round dot on our mailbox awhile back it fell off after awhile. I would think if they wanted to mark the boxes they would use something that does not show up under normal light but only under a light the military would use. Maked me want to take my black light out at night and look over my box but it will take a LOT of electric cord.
WE have a neighbor at our lake cottage that worked for the postal service for 20 some years and recently retired I will ask him next time we are there.
