Alrighty, I'm not knocking your info here, but honestly, those of us who live near the New Madrid fault have known for years that a huge quake could
happen anytime and when it does, it's likely to be a bad one. I remember being ready for this big quake twenty years ago. Granted, there are
probably people out there who need to be reminded, but I live in Kentucky, and I know for sure that most people around here aren't going to pay any
attention to stuff they don't even know about. For example, ask the average joe out on the street here what a chemtrail is and he's likely to look
at you like you're nuts, especially if you tried to explain that chemicals being sprayed in the sky are supposed to have anything to do with
something that happens underground.
I personally think the best way to prepare people for such an event is just to remind them that the New Madrid fault is well overdue for a big quake
and leave all the FEMA, chemtrail, etc - fear mongering, out of it. I'm not saying I don't believe in any of those things, but the truth is that
most people don't... most people in the general population that is. Throw in all this other crap with an event that is very likely to happen soon
and more than likely, it's just going to go overlooked and ignored and seen as paranoia. If the fact that a major quake could occur at anytime
isn't enough to get people prepared, all this other junk that they may not even believe in isn't going to help matters.
I don't see what's wrong with just saying laying out the facts and stating that earthquakes have been quite numerous lately so anyone that lives
near ANY major fault line, including New Madrid, should be ready for a massive state of emergency. The rest of the junk is just overkill and is more
likely to make a potentially dangerous situation be ignored.
I could be wrong, and like I said, I'm not saying anything bad towards you about trying to make people prepared. I even appreciate it, being that
you don't even live in America and are trying to warn us. That is nice of you.
I just don't think it's a good idea to mix the potential of a
very dangerous situation in with stuff that isn't even proven. That's my whole point here.
