An auto de fé was the ritual of public penance of condemned heretics and apostates that took place when the Spanish Inquisition or the Portuguese Inquisition had decided their punishment (that is, after the trial). Auto de fé in medieval Spanish (and in Portuguese) means "act of faith". The phrase is used most frequently in English in its alternative Portuguese form auto-da-fé. In the popular imagination, "auto-da-fé" has come to refer to burning at the stake for heresy. -- Wikipedia.
"Here's more of them! They're everywhere! They're everywhere!" How can we escape?!? They've got shackles inside! No, really, Mark Koernke told me personally!"
If I get another one of these Mark Koernke-inspired paranoid fantasy email warnings I'm going to puke. Look people, go here to the March 2000 issue of Popular Mechanics, read the article "Auto-Max Railcar Gets More Vehicles To Dealers: The Auto-Max railcar is changing the way cars are shipped," by Edward Hellwig.
Here is an Auto-Max being loaded.
Here is a closer view.

C'mon, people, quit believing such easily debunked disinformation. It only makes our side, assuming people who push such lies ARE on our side, look like demonstrable morons, fruitcakes and nutburgers. The really funny thing is that this rumor (complete with photos) got started by the left loonies during the Bush administration and folks who claim to be on our side (and other racist collectivist idiots like Hal Turner) picked it up. Let no imaginary piece of horsecrap go to waste, I guess.
Anyway, if the trains start running in this country, you'll know it when it happens and they won't need any special cars to do it. Just be ready to fight back when they do.
