Here is some real irony: the naked vulnerability surrounding the Wall Street barons and Hollywood yahoos. America’s wealthiest citizens are among the most exposed. Just think of those Manhattan high-rise co-op buildings and banking palaces. When the juice blinks off for an extended period, all those Wall Street skyscrapers and movie town estates will go black and dead. Talk about trapped!
Meanwhile, mom and the kids back in the Greenwich compounds will be on their own with little in the way of food and water, zero transportation or communications availability, and almost certainly no defensive position. And at the movieland estates, all security systems, along with communications and transportation options, will have failed. In quick order, it could get real uncomfy around now stilled movieland swimming pools. Lot’s to consider, wouldn’t you say.
So what’s your next move? I know what mine is. I’m going to boot up my reading and study program—burn up the lines to my Amazon account. And I will continue in orderly fashion to shore up my weakest positions. Inertia is the real problem. It is tough to make difficult decisions on unpleasant topics no matter your good intentions and strong resolve. It is always easy to wait till tomorrow. I have been involved with personal security and defense for a number of years, and the more I read, the more concerned I get. What is increasingly clear is that I am on my own. The folk in Washington are continuing to agitate in the Middle East with expected results. Two horrific Supreme Court appointments best exemplify the administration’s anti-Second Amendment position. It does not matter who ends up getting the Republican presidential nomination! What matters is that the fellow currently residing in the White house does not get another shot or two at the Supreme Court. I hope all Americans understand the grave nature of the Supreme Court issue. America cannot tolerate a second term of Barack Obama! Make it a good and well-prepared week.
