When Hurricane Ike hit Houston last year, it was very difficult to get groceries or gas for the first 3 days. I saw enough road raging on day 3 that
I decided not to leave my driveway unless I became desperate for something.
Add to the fact that hardly a traffic light was working in the entire metro area (with some exceptions, of course). When I say they weren't working,
I don't mean they were flashing. I mean the power to the traffic lights was non-existent.
By day 4, thankfully, the system started coming back online in measurable fashion. Had that gone on for a week or two or longer, as it did in New
Orleans and east of it after Katrina and as it did after Rita between Houston and New Orleans, it would have got real dicey in Houston real fast.
Folks, people are talking about how bad things are getting but I think few really comprehend what they are saying.
Unless you have been in a riot or near situation or some type of war zone, you have no idea what you are in for.
Even though we all despise all the crazy laws DC is passing these days, it is a far better headache then anarchy.
As long as I have a roof over my head and food to eat I'm good. I can find another place to stay. I can tent up if need to. It will get old pretty
fast but I can deal. But when I run out of food, I will do what must be done so I can eat.
On the flip side, someone might decide to take from me. In that instance, if I get the chance to open fire on them, I most certainly will. Texas
Penal Code Chapter 9; I know my rights.
Better then the average person.
What happened in Eastern Europe and Russia after Communism fell is what you can expect to happen here when Capitalism falls in the next 10 years or
I know I am just barely on thread and I'm sorry for drifting so far off. At this very moment, I am picking up as many out-of-the-home sales jobs as
I can get associated with. I used to be in the financial industry and I do not regret leaving it.
So running out of food will make me "riot" per say. Or bringing the riot to me will make me riot in self defense. But once you hurt somebody, it
doesn't matter who is right and who is wrong, you and your family will be at war with their loved ones.
That swishing sound you hear is the United States swirling down the toilet. And with every nation's economy plugged into the US economy within two
degrees, it is goes to be a heck of a ride for the entire planet.
Anyway, that's my rant. If it gets deleted by a mod, I'll understand.
Peace until War.
