I can't help thinking this catastrophe must be related to the recent devaluing and discreditation of the dollar.
There is just so much evidence to point to it I do not know where to begin.
Surely it is a warning to America to pay back its 4trillion dollar debt, or pay the consequences?

I see you are in Vegas, where I lived for about six year before coming down here. I wouldn't start throwing stereotypes around if I were you. I love nowhere near the beach, and I actually live in the desert very near the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults, among others. SoCal is very, very overdue for a truly major earthquake in the 7, 8, 9 numbers, according to scientists.
I follow earthquakes / disasters as a hobby and I am a preparedness activist. You don't have to have daily 5. earthquakes to understand them. I understand all I need to which is that I am prepared for them as best I can be with medical, food and water supplies. I can't help but laugh when I watch people scatter like cockroaches because they live in some fantasy world of complacence, believing they don't need to prepare themselves for anything because nothing will ever happen to them, and the government will ride in and save them if it does. That worked out so well for Katrina victims.
Then I am hearing reports that officials are having trouble getting communications through to the nuclear power plants because the phone lines are all jammed (same thing happens out here even for small quakes). Shouldn't we as a country, the Great US of A, be a little more prepared for this kind of thing by now? I just don't get it. No wait, I do get it. NO ONE is watching out for you. You better do it for yourself.
I have family on the East coast that are reporting that people are completely spazzing out still as I type this. They are rushing out of buildings, causing traffic jams trying to get home early, etc. One of the most dangerous things about a disaster is the public reaction. The last place I want to be is on a highway, that's for sure. They will slow to a crawl and stop dead in no time during a real emergency.

Yes, and the buildings are on the east coast are much older and not earthquake enforced. We have plenty of buildings that are much older then the existance of California.
