#1 My question is... why didn't they stock up on canned rations and propane heat stoves before hand?

I guess this is what decades of government dependency breeds. When government goes away, the people have no idea what to do.

Really can't feel to sorry for 'em either.

#2 These are the people who elect politicians that call for shutting down Texas and Arizona power plants via their EPA agents. Maybe the intelligent ones will start asking themselves where all this bounty comes from when the bounty no longer arrives.

#3 BTW, the real intelligent ones will finally grasp what happens to large metro areas IF a civil war ever broke out again disrupting those lines of supply and energy.

#5 And NY Health Dept won't let you and me distribute food to the hungry - it might make them sick.

#6 Heard about several restaurants being shut down by NYC health officials while trying to provide free food, Glenmore. Apparently they were trying to serve food without the benefit of electricity.
