If you wanted to ditch the jackboots, you should have moved out where no one else wants much to live.
That sort of means moving out to flyover where the weather is unreliable and mostly uncomfortable, the landscape is generally uninteresting in the manner of what most people think of as scenic, and your neighbor is likely to be a herd of cows.
One of the reasons I moved OUT of the Northeast is to escape the martial-order like atmosphere. (I was living in NYC during WTC, and Boston suburbs during the Marathon bombing, and witnessed the lockdown, chaos, and peril of both.
If any agency prepares for (insert disaster scenario of choice here), there's automatically a conspiracy afoot. Why now? Why here? Why this? Whyyyyy? (yes, I am aware of the drills that magically turned into reality, but that isn't the case 100 percent of the time..)
If an agency failed to prepare and the disaster happened.... everyone would be screaming about their lack of preparation and conspiracy would be afoot.
There is no winning for them, apparently
And, to the person that brought up Fukushima.. very interesting angle you have there, especially with the fuel move (did they start that yet?) and all the potential doom-y, gloomy implications in the event it doesn't go well.
