Infrastructure is the key. The bad guys saw what happened to our economy and way of life after 9/11. They're seeing right now what happens when a major city and key energy supplier goes kablooey.
We all feel it, and will continue to do so.
They didn't even do this one -- Mama Nature did.
They get CNN. They get Sky News. And you can bet Al Jazeera is purchasing footage of Allah's Slap to Satan.
The planners are going to put 2 and 2 together. We're already on a knife's edge with respect to energy and infrastructural balance. It won't take to much more of a push to make the rest of the country panic like they already are here in Georgia and elsewhere. Gas at $3-4/gallon will seem as far away as sub-$1/gallon does now.
We had better get hold of our energy situation and border/immigration control NOW. And I believe it's time to let everyone know that the moonbattery has to stop -- be American first, or get out. Treason and sedition cannot be allowed, now or in the coming days.
Fences and guards at the borders. Big enclosures in the desert. Illegals and traitors in the pen. Drilling sites and refineries built.
I hate to sound like a Doomsday wacko, but lessons not learned result in higher tuition costs the second/third/fourth time.
Get self-defense weaponry.
Get some supplies in order (gas, water, food, medical, generator, radio, batteries).
Have a plan.
Don't be afraid to survive.
It's going to be war footing before we know it, if we don't take care of business. Remember grandpa and grandma's moldy stories of conserving rubber and gas, during WWII? We could be there again. New Orleans is showing us what happens when everything is taken away, replaced with nothing, and the local government is helpless or unwilling to keep order.
Again, I am NOT a fan of Big Brother. That being said, I'd also rather not have to be sitting in my house every night protecting a generator at gunpoint from a machete-wielding gang. There are steps, distasteful though they may be, that a responsible government should take in order to protect and aid the law-abiding citizenry from the unlawful horde.
Especially if the unlawful horde is unleashed on the rest of us by the Unlawful Horde. And they're watching.
