North Dakota News
This text is from a county emergency manager out in
the western part of North Dakota after the recent
WEATHER BULLETIN !!!!
Up here in the Northern Plains we just recovered
from a Historic event --- may I even say a "Weather
Event" of "Biblical Proportions" with a historic
blizzard of up to
44" inches of snow and winds to 90 MPH trees in
half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundreds
of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads,
isolated scores and cut power to 10's of thousands.
George Bush did not come....
FEMA did nothing....
No one howled for the government...
No one blamed the government
No one even uttered an expletive on TV
Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not
Our Mayors did not blame Bush or anyone
Our Governor did not blame Bush or
anyone else either
CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX, or NBC did not
visit - or report on this category "5"
Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards.....
No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House....
No one looted...
Nobody - I mean Nobody demanded the
government do something.
Nobody expected the government to do
No Larry King, No Bill O'Rielly, No
Oprah, No Chris Mathews and No Geraldo
No Shaun Penn, No Barbara Striesand, No
Hollywood types to be found
And Nope, WE just melted the snow for
Sent out caravans of SUV's to pluck
people out of snow engulfed cars
The truck drivers pulled people out of
and didn't ask for a penny
Local restaurants made food and the
police and fire departments delivered
it to the snow bound families
Families took in the stranded people -
We Fired up wood stoves
Broke out coal oil lanterns or Coleman
We put on an extra layers of clothes
here it is "Work or Die"
We did not wait for some affirmative
action government to get us out of a
mess created by being
immobilized by a welfare program that
trades votes for
'sittin at home' checks.
Even though a Category "5" blizzard of
has never fallen this early...we know
it can happen
and how to deal with it ourselves
"In my many travels, I have noticed
that once one
gets north of about 48 degrees North
most of the world's social problems
It does seem that way, at least to me.
I hope this gets
Maybe, SOME people will get the
message: The world does
not owe you a living....
Your so right. I hate snow tho.
You mean I don't get free shit if a tornado happens?
I pay taxes to the .gov to support me, they'll come through. you wait and see.....
I hope the sarcasm is evident..
Amazing, the people that can take care of themselves are the people who vote mainly...
Conservative. Shows where the work ethic lies in this country
I was stationed at Minot AFB, ND and in 1996 we got so much snow it was covering the upstairs windows. you couldn't get to the chow hall to eat, and even if you could there wouldn't be anyone there because of the snow. The only place i have ever been that if you break down in the winter there is a good chance you will die. That winter the temp got down to -106 below with wind chill. I fucking hated that place!!!!!!
That happened recently?
My family is from central and western north dakota. They didn't say shit to me about this.
Not really. The dumb bastards from my home state send democRATs to the senate year after year.
They apparently like sucking rancid fat from the government tit in the form of farm subsidies.
I'm pretty sure this is what happened in 1996-1997 it was the worst winter on record.
...by moving to Texas!
<------- Now living at 48d 23m North (from 32d 46m North) for just the reasons stated.
One of my worst nightmares is having the SHTF (natural or otherwise) and being surrounded by millions of socialist indoctrinated 'tards waiting for gooberment to save their worthless asses (and ruining my life in the process).
Anyone that didn't get the message about self-sufficiency after NOLA deserves whatever happens to them.
Yeah, my dad had some pretty crazy stories from that year. He was a lineman for a rural electric co-op and put in a metric assload of overtime getting people's power back on after that mess.
They send out phony emails?
North Dakota is a full of leeches as any other rural area.
Thank you for the "Free money" FEMA.
