Hmmm - Bureaucrats and politicians screwed the pooch. Gee, what a shocker.
Ask yourself though, are YOU ready to handle a few days of anarchy if and when the fit hits the shan in your hood?
I'm not some survivalist nut, but I do have a reasonably watertight bin with a good supply of bottled water, blankets, first aid, granola, flashlights, transistor radio and batteries ready to go. Why? So if a tornado sweeps through and my wife, child, dog and I survive we can have our own butts covered. If our butts are covered, then we can help others. If your own butt aint covered, ya can't help anyone else.
See, if everyone is prepared as individuals, then there'd be far less freakin out and panic. There'd be far fewer people figuring aww hell, we're gonna die anyway, lets loot and rape. If everyone as individuals had their own plan, then when the politicians and bureaucrats screwed up again the people could actually take care of each other.
Ask not what your government can do for you, ask what you can do for each other!
