Gloomy Forecast!
« on: August 28, 2017, 09:00:22 AM »
Thanks to Hurricane Harvey we can expect all sorts of issues:

  • Higher fuel costs; gas, oil, and natural gas.
  • Delayed delivery of gas, oil, and natural gas.
  • Higher food product costs due to increased cost of fuels.
  • Delayed delivery of food and other products.
  • Higher air, sea, and land travel cost.
  • A host of other issues that commonly follow such occurrences (e.g. a downturn in the economy, price gouging, etc.).
Buckle up, stock up as you can, and arm up! It's going to be a hell of a ride for a while! 
What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

...But, according to the White House, the Governor of Texas had nothing but high praise for the Trump administration's response to the storm and its devastation.
Compare that to the responses of the "W" administration, to the storms during its watch.

Ayup! We are seeing, and will continue to see the good, the bad, and the ugly associated with this event as it unfolds.
