  • Let’s just think about this. There are still wide swaths of America that do not have internet, let alone fiber optic. How many other things are there that after 40 years still isn’t fully accessible everywhere. Our roads, plumbing, and yes electrical grid are in decay. The electrical grid is decades away from being able to survive a serious solar storm, let alone an EMP attack. Our Government is a joke, and full of imbeciles who want to create a problem we’re not ready for.
