OK, This is my first attempt at starting a thread. After watching recent events, I started thinking....
I've been a resident of the Pacific Northwest, for 20 years. When I first moved here, a significant number, of "non-professional" families, were
making VERY good wages, in the "logging" industry. Within a few years, the FEDGOV, had come-in, and GREATLY restricted the lands available for "public
logging". This, PERMANENTLY decimated the income, of these families. Most, have never recovered- taking very low-paying service jobs, EVERY family
California, seems to have done an EXCELLENT job, of destroying it's manufacturing base, by passing "ecology laws"- in one of the cleanest states, in
the country. (YES- I KNOW- it was NOT like that, 30 years ago- the clean air act, made GREAT Improvements, in SoCal's air quality).
Hurrican Katrina, devastated the Louisiana/Mississippi/Alabama coasts- and MOST of the damage, has never been repaired. At least, NOT in the "poor
neighborhoods". I believe that the majority of the dislocated poor, NEVER RETURNED, becoming citizens of Dallas, Denver, etc.
Detroit, and the entire Central/Northern Region, has had it's HEAVY manufacturing base, sold-overseas. Those jobs are gone, for good.
Now, the Gulf Region, is being systematically poisoned. God's knows, WHEN a major hurricane comes-along, and spreads the toxins, hundreds of miles
inland. Crops, already seem to be effected. It remains to be seen, how far up the East Coast, the damage will go. Virginia? New York?
Now consider- IF "somehow", the New Madrid fault, were to cut-lose, witha BIG ONE, it would effectively cut the country in half. How's THAT, for
"controlling" the population's movement?
It seems, that the N.E Region (Financial District), is being saved for last.
Well- Is there a pattern, here? Or, just a series, of very unlucky coincidinces?
