    Imagine, for a moment, that a 7.3-magnitude earthquake hit a major U.S. city. ... But does anyone really believe that between half and three-quarters of a million would still be living under tents and tarps, sleeping in mud, without running (or even potable) water or toilet facilities, with women and children getting raped on a daily basis for daring to venture out from under their precious pieces of plastic to find a latrine?
    I believe it.  The powers that be do not care about anyone other than multi-billionaires.  They never have and they never will.

    Any so-called "reconstruction" would be nothing more than disaster capitalism, with an even more secret agenda of social engineering: clear out all the people who use government services and vote Democrat and give the land to developers. More likely, any place that couldn't pay to rebuild out of its own pocket would be left to rot just like Detroit.

    Do you know why they call it the American Dream? Because it only happens when you're asleep.
