Mike, do you think people will pick up on this and start to move out. I mean again historically the snart people and the money people always seem to
move away. is there any sign of this yet or is it still too far off.
If the banks go bust this year all heel will break loos very quickly indeed.
I think people have been picking up and moving out for some time due to urban decay in a phenomena known as "White Flight".
In recent times locally much of the wealth has moved outside city limits and in many cases moving to rural areas in a neighboring parish.
When a social collapse occurs the last place anyone would want to be is in an urban area. New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina gave us a
preview of that.
Like New Orleans after Katrina, I suspect Sheriff Depts will confine people who are already in urban areas during the collapse with checkpoints,
barricades and if need be bullets. I need to mention our Sheriff Dept showcased their new armored car, looked like some kind of South African armored
vehicle, and deputies dressed in digital camo ACUs during our recent Mardi gras parades.
There are plenty of smart people who know this and have chosen to move to rural areas, stock provisions, and arm themselves.
edited to add into about parades.
