  •  Like I have room in my FEMA (none)
    camper for 3 days of food and water, much less 30. Let's just forget the formalities, the pretensions, and tell it like it really is.

     We are on our own. The government isn't going to save you or your children,your parents, or your ass, no matter how many doses of vaccine they say they have, and the preparations are not going to help us regular folks one bit.

    This will be one more opportunity for this fat-cat government to save the connected, those who have cash, those who have clout, and put into place curfews, arbitrary economic manipulation, devalue the property of those effected, and basically relocate those segments of society most likely to suffer from widespread epidemic.

    We will be dependent upon each other, so if you trust FEMA, or any hter agency loaded with Bush appointees, you're living in lala land.

    We need OUR OWN LEADERS to set up a distribution system, a volunteer effort, not just for this, but for other potential disasters, for own survival, and for a framework of Democratic action.
