3 days? Gee ... Ya Think?

“The message for a lot of us needs to be, ‘Be ready for anything’,” said Battalion Chief Larry Collins. “The message used to be 72 hours, but we’ve seen in disasters like [Hurricane] Katrina, even [Hurricane] Sandy recently, that, really, if it’s wiped out your infrastructure, and your electricity grid and your communications, it will be very likely be more than three days before you start getting food, water and other supplies coming in from outside.”




I think he forgot to mention law enforcement.


All I can keep flashing back on is after Hurricane Sandy the people standing out on the street 48hrs after the storm saying they were hungry and wondering where the government was to feed them. Can you imagine what L.A. would be like after a major quake?

No, I can't. We went through the Lancers quake and power was put for about 72 hours, the ATM system statewide was done for longer than that.

Glad we are now out of social, the crush of humanity is a terrible thing to have to deal with on normal days, much less large-scale "emergencies".

I wonder what the folks hit by sandy would say seeing how it took 3 months plus for our government to put a package


up to a vote then it was full of pork and actually very little money for those effected if those people are still democrats


after a first hand screwing they got I have no words to explain it.


OH and insurance companies got out of paying because it was not a flood it was rising water????? and some other


angles and trickery if you had flood insurance you still may not have been covered but boy if your in egypt they


jumped through their azz to get them their planes tanks and money and Mali Syria etc etc they are sending food and


support to them but screw Americans and then the city comes in and condemn or fine people who's home has been damaged.


it is a national travesty IMO

You know I was thinking the same thing this morning when I was startled by the earthquake luckily it didn't last long at all (that's what she said), but I was thinking about stocking up on some supplies incase there was more or bigger aftershocks. I did fill up my truck and a few gas cans just in case. I picture the city of Los Angeles would turn into a war zone quick and in a hurry.

California is a funny place some areas would go crazy and some would be help each other hand in hand during a

natural disaster {some other man made event would be questionable of the reaction}


IMO a natural disaster is not the time to be a prick wait till TEOTWAWKI and even then let your area dictate what you need to do

some areas are not going to turn into crazyville because the people just are not wired that way.

of course some areas will look like the Nazi's going into Poland.


like I have heard it said, "don't start no sh*t and there will be no sh*t"

Large cities are a petri dish for confrontation and violence it is apparent to me the ones who are handed everything are the first

to try to take advantage and steal everything that is not chained down and burn down their own community {go figure}

I realize it is not true of all the people in any area but rage like that harms everyone and those who try to stop it get hurt.

You know, I spend half my time shipping water filtration devices to areas after the fact because they never want to see anything like that again. The other half are preppers like us.

Every thing I move is under $60 and has been to places like Haiti and other disasters around the world. I do keep for myself a hanging bag that cranks out about 10 gallons per hour that could take care of most the people in my subdivision. I also keep for myself the items for bugging out. I'm not trying to sell anything here because most of you have taken care of the water situation. (first on list) It just gets ugly with crowds that die in 3-4 days without water or they drink from lakes and get worse (die slower) from contamination and bad bacteria.

In Louisiana they could have dropped these devices and bucket systems for cheap and had water for large groups of people.

I wish I could just give it away. Maybe some day I will be able too.

not against what you said I can understand why you said it.

but I do not believe in giving anything away during decent times people have money now

and time right now! and if they do not see the value in their own lives and piss their money

on a video game then screw them.


I relate it to the Katrina mind set steal a flat screen TV and beer when there is no power

getting drunk during a disaster is so far beyond stupid I cannot comprehend it.


I feel everyone deserves to make a profit and a living it makes me crazy what people will waste their money on

and as soon as a whiff of danger hits them they panic and push shove and knock over baby strollers to get

what they think they need to survive in that moment they know what it takes to survive but before they

laugh in your face when you tell them to get ready or prepare if they put no value on their lives

I damn sure would not.

    • LMAO, Shepard Smith was on with a guy from a group that supposedly defends reports and guess what again the phrase< "American reporter that worked for the New York post" DUH he was not an American citizen. So what are we to do fire 55.000 worker dump the stock market by 1/3rd to appease the press the same press that did not defend the rights of Alex Jones HELL at least Bill Maher gets it and admonished a group he was in front of stating he did not agree with Alex Jones but he had the right to speak his mind,  but not a peep out of Shepard smith who thinks he's a journalist he couldn't write jingles for toilet paper. they put up some amazing number like 1400 that have been killed since 1992 but out of that only 24 were targeted the rest were collateral damage during fire fights. 24 for the whole world since 1992 wholly sh*t it's an epidemic IT's Russian collusion look there's a naked woman in someones bed. When you piss someone off your likely to get killed. Hell let's nominate Koshogi for sainthood OOPS sorry he is not a Catholic he's a MUSLIM. we need to stop muslim on muslm killing LMAO or it might catch on...lets hop so. I wnat to know where are the investigations on Hillery's dead pool how about the 10,00 plus dead for invading 5 countries in 5 years ALA George Bush then more stupidity from Obama What about over 1 million Christians murdered by Islamist since 2001 not a friggin' peep women taken in war for sex slave damn little rhetoric on that what about Lois Lerner from the IRS stifling freedom of association and political freedom? against Republican groups / tea party  only.
    • Californian are running like rats off a sinking ship don't let them win election in your tow county or state, why because they have not learned a damn thing they screwed up everything possible in Commiefornia and now that it is untenable they run away.  Three quarters of all the major cities are democrats in commiefornia and a bunch have had to file for bankruptcy they promised the city workers police fire and prison / jailers that they would have a forever pension with all healthcare and increases LMAO well it is time to pay and the b@stards are going to the bathroom to avoid paying the check. Commiefornians are coming soon to a town near you remember who they are and treat them like your lazy lying brother in-law. It's not that they are bad people it's that they are stupid just like New York city dwellers the rest of the state of New York is OK but they are trapped by the city no matter how they vote or what they do locally the city is the state and makes all the laws and rules for the state everyone else is like a person that closed the door on the taxi with their coat hung in it they are along for the ride and the ending is not going to be fun. I live near enough to Houston to see what democratic leaders smell like, snake oil and money illicit money there are enough gangs and dope there to float a tanker off a sand bar, and some how it gets laundered and ends up as political contributions.  the police department pension keeps going broke and they steal it from the fire department to make up the shortfall. Tehy can't keep criminals in jail because there are too many so they let them out to prey on more working citizens but I digress this rant is about Californians. The word sh*t bird means a person that where ever they light they crap all over and leave that is the definition of any of the escapees from the major democratic cities, as in San Francisco Las Angeles, Seattle, Portland Oregon, Detroit Chicago, New York, Boston, look at what they are allowing murders minimal sentencing on drug felons handing out needles condoms and credit cards to homeless criminals (they have ongoing police records) a tax on everything and fees tolls user fees  and more controls on private property and corruption in your face. Here is a few little videos on how illegal immigration hurts American citizens keeps pay scale down and kills local jobs for local children.         GREAT VIDEO ABOUT A LIVING WAGE          
    • I want to double down on my statement that ALL how many is that, ALL governments have a hit list for years any one of political or scientific stature has been in the cross hairs of their own country or another. recently HUNDREDS of genetic scientists have been killed all over the world China and North Korea have killed people Kim had his brother killed Russia has killed more than a few with Radio active elements this is just the tip of the iceberg nation states murder people all the time how about the Princes Dianna witnesses ?  Want to talk about a death toll Bill and Hilary's count could stretch across D.C. Any youtube search even if only partially correct  makes your sphincter catch second gear. At east all of Trumps detractors are still alive. While Bill was Governor there is a recording of his brother saying Bill has a nose like a vacuum  cleaner speaking about cocaine. so White Water all the sexploits and the stories of  Clinton foundation are all political lies well you can't sweep over a hundred dead under the carpet without leaving some lumps. Presstitutes (journalists that get paid to write poison pen notes) have built a wall around the Clinton's but I see that wall starting to crack all the lies spouted by the left seem to be reality but not on Trump but on the Clinton's they colluded with Russia they corrupted the upper echelon of all the alphabet agencies into Uranium One and a host of other nefarious deals. It's hard to rob a bank as big as the U.S. government unless you have some lookouts and insiders IMHO. I don't think much of either of the BUSH family as thy touted the same line as Obama the jobs are gone and they are not coming back our economy was not as good as it could have been but then again if your working for the banks and the E.U. and not the Americans that voted you in well you see what I mean. Bush Sr. made a speech and in it, " A New World Order" that should have sent shudders up and down the voter pool but because America is like 27th on the educational level of all countries you can see where that went over their heads. Everyone knows if your not smart street or otherwise your going to get taken and the American taxpayer has been fleeced screwed and lied to for so long they expect it and look forward to it NOW that Trump is in office they are begining to wake up and see all the lies from the last 4 administrations jobs can come back law and order can be restored we can have jobs and better trade deals and taxes do not have to go up every year now he is pressing to make all departments cut 5% given time he will pay for the military and the wall if we can give him a majority in the house and senate I think healthcare will be the next domino to topple.   WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOOSE WE KNOW WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO FOR 40 YEARS GET OFF YOUR AZZ AND KNEES AND GO OUT AND VOTE.
    •   The 800 pound gorilla in the room is 55,000 jobs compared to one dumbazz journalist who had picked a side in this fight like all the Trump haters in our news services. Make no mistake there is nothing better than allowing thie incident to cut the throat of American jobs / manufacturing and drive down all the increased jobs that make the Obama administration look like the fools they were a quote from Obama was, "those jobs are never coming back" he was a fool then and made it worse by stating Trump would never be president.  It is not Just 55,000 jobs it is the stock market will also take a hit another reason for the left to to take a victory lap and jeer that Trump policies were pie in the sky Socialists will do anything to destroy this country "out of Chaos, order" they are doing their best to back socialists candidates who's policies will put us in the poor house, they want open boarders and then make Americans pay for their healthcare housing and food stamps and if they make another baby more more more goes out to minimum wage workers or flatbackers (whores)  I have seen this in bars that I have run, a short fall in their budget they go out and find a open wallet that needs some companionship, it's called prostitution. As far as this journalists now on fox news Harris Falkner is calling him an American based journalists to make it sound like he is an American citizen, He IS BOT. I had a lot of respect for Harris Falkner but she has shot that in the AZZ as far as I am concerned her and Don Lemon should start dating, but I don't think he's into women. Since the toppling of Rupert Murdock and his replacement I have seen a definite shift of some of the Fox news host to the left but there have been those that hated Trump from the beginning Daina Perino was a never Trumper along with Shepard Smith who wears more eyeliner than any woman I know. Bill Hemmer is a piece of work he just want to magnify himself he would shoot himself to get attention (attention deficit disorder ). Jon Scott his family couldn't spell so he was traumatized by their ignorance so he decided to get a degree and forgot to change his name to JOHN he is about as exciting as bumper rust. Brian Kilmead another Attention deficit disorder  champion, then there is  Eric Bolling  a never Trumper he is a democrat in a morons clothing I think he successful at fooling us he's not, just left of pocket book style Yankee liberal who probably voted for New York Mayor  Bill de Blasio.  I see where the Democrats want to take down Trump and they are willing to tank America to do it because any fool knows when the stock market falls it goes right back up so it would make them look like saviors if they manipulate the president into making this Koshogi journalist thing into a pull the Saudi Military arms deal out from under 55,000 American workers  The democrats don't give a hoot in hell about Americans especially if they have a job, they want sniveling crawling beggars at their feet begging for the crumbs Trump gave them back while they hold the whip and send our jobs overseas and make a fat check for doing it.
