one of the parties in the recent election was given 8 billion dollars in donations.
but people are hoarding them because they are scared.
I expect sandbags to start arriving there by May.
And video games are about $1B/month
which I assume is the value in Australian dollars
there are strong labor unions preventing additional help from coming in
you gotta wonder about a person as unprepared as that.
Gas hoarding is not typical but yeah, it happens.
Who gives a toss if you can see a damn statue?
It's a bit better than the response after Katrina (hurricane in Lousiana) - where they ran out of ammunition in the neighbouring states as folks armed up for the incomming invasion of refugees <missing a bittersweet smiley here>.
The state of Texas welcomed approximately 1/4 of the Katrina refugees. 37% of those folks chose to make Texas their new home.
Criminals amongst refugees is a valid concern. For example, providing refuge for Katrina victims resulted in a very significant increase in murders (and other violent crimes) in Houston.
Problem with news from afar - only the sensational part gets through.
Hmmm... was that infighting amongst the new residents?
Some good points there I think.I live on solar and I think that empowers me (sorry because I'm not dependant on any outside people.There is a down side of course, that being that I can't depend on any outside people. If something breaks it's me that has to fix it.Same goes with my plumbing, roofing, hydraulics, air systems, truck tyres, LPG, you name it.Overall I like it that way, but there are times when I'd rather just pick up the phone, like now, I have a leaking pressure pump ______Rob
