This pattern of behavior repeats itself over and over.
"Too much government,GET the government budget lower,reduce emergency costs,get rid of some cops and firemen"
Then a disaster hits;
"Where are our services? We need more law enforcement, Put the fire out NOW! Where's FEMA?"
If we had spent all the money we do on the "war on terrorism" and rebuilt our cities and infrastructures with a genuine concern for our citizens,we
would have a better back up system in place for emergencies.
But we all got concerned when FEMA bought all those emergency rations, not because we hoped there would be no disaster, we were more pissed maybe
they knew something we didn't know, and would'nt tell us.
I'm pleased DC area has not rioted. Good for them. Colorado fire's have looters going in? ????
It's a tight line between expecting the government to save us from anything, and spending money and not being prepared by the same government.
At least people that read ATS understand we've been warned and why.
And no, you don't have to go overboard like Alex Jones and that couple in the Tremors movie.
(Although the elephant gun came in handy killing those varmints)
I hope everyone stays calm. I'm not so sure they will though.
