Just what the future holds.

June 17, 2008 Leave a comment

After reading some of the reports coming out of Iowa and the flood affected areas, things do not look good at all. I have a feeling this flood will impact this country much more than Hurricane Katrina did. The reason for that assumption is, this flood is affecting our food supplies. At any rate, we will soon find out how bad its going to get.

On another note, I got some snippets from a story on CNN.com and some interesting insights of what marshal law looks like, and just what the future may hold for other disaster victims.

The first one:

To me this does not make sense. First you can go in, then you cant, we changed our minds. I would like to know just why it has suddenly become “unsafe”.

The Second:

Now you have to take a mark. I guess in this situation its a good thing. You don’t want people roaming around in there that do not belong, especially if they get the chance to loot and pillage.

The Third:

This one is just plain bizarre. The lady was dead in her car, and it was stopped. THEN it was hit by a National Guard bus. Did the bus driver think this stopped car was just going to move out of its way because it was a “National Guard” bus? Did the bus driver know how to operate said bus? How hard is it to avoid a stopped car? Cant be to hard I drive through parking lots all the time! Sheesh

The Fourth:

The myth that has been steadily crammed down our throats since 9-11. You have no rights, because we are trying to protect you. Its scary to see just how widely accepted this myth has become. Also thanks to things like the “Patriot Act” which have made many laws to make these statements true is even more disturbing. Freedom comes at a price. The government cant even get a stimulus check right, how do you think they are going to be able to protect you? And just what are they protecting you from? Yourself. They need to protect you from yourself because you are danger, a danger to yourself and others. So keep on swallowing that pill, it will make everything alright.

These floods are very similar to what happened in New Orleans. Our weather is getting more and more intense. The birth pangs are so close together now that it is just becoming a blur. This snippet is from CNN.com

Wicked Weather!

February 2, 2007 Leave a comment

Wicked weather is certainly nothing new in the times in which we are living. Just this morning / last night, some really bad stuff went through my hometown. So far the reports are that 14 people have been killed. Thankfully, from what I can tell nobody in my family has been affected. My Grandmother who is about to be 90 years young, lives by herself and thank goodness she slept through it! From the news reports I have seen it was pretty bad. At one point a tornado touched down in a retirement community. My cousin works for the Forestry Service and I have not yet heard from him. I imagine he is working to clear the debris and what not that is left behind.
