Four Days and Watch The Behavior Of The Urban Animal.

The entitlement society in full meltdown. People crapping in buildings, dumpster diving for food, murdering for a tank of gas. All of this after four days.

This is what happens when people leave the farms and heads for the cities . These people don't know how to prepare . They can't deal with anything other than there routine . I feel sorry for them . They need our prayers .

They always seem to cover the bad instead of the areas where neighbors are helping neighbors. Don't forget where we are talking about there are some people that act that way disaster or not.

Little off topic here but was watching CNN storm coverage the other night. Reporter in knee deep water center of large intersection telling us about flooding. His camerman mistakenly backed off of the zoom to show the rest of the area. It was dry, nothing unusual. My only point, the news media chases the easy dramatic stories. If anything, the news media leads people toward panic mode.

I am a Pastor in the southern coal region in NE Pennsylvania. I grew up in the south and distinctly remember riding out 4 hurricanes and experiencing two tornadoes.The people here went into full panic meltdown mode and do that almost every time we have any type of weather system coming. They call and want me to close the church, cancel the services, and then get upset when I say no. I tell them that it has been raining/snowing/storming/flooding/etc/etc in Pennsylvania since God created Pennsylvania and if your going to live here then learn to deal with it.

If your going to get snow and you going somewhere, go out an hour early and get the snow off your car and don't complain that you were late because you had to get the snow off the car and there was a lot of snow on the roads. If there is even a chance that your going to lose power, make sure DAYS ahead of time you have food, water, and supplies laied up and you did that the month before. Other than getting hit by a tornado with no warning, there is no excuse for not always having emergency supplies, ways of cooking, etc. The people around here binged on milk, eggs and toiler paper. What is wrong with this picture. Power goes out for a week, what is going to happen to that milk and eggs? And buying a CASE of toilet paper? Really???

One thing people did not bing by on around here was charcoal, starter fluid and propane cylinders for a grill. I heard one family say they lost power for 14 hours and they got hungry because they had an electric stove and couldn't cook anything. I asked about their gas grill and asked "why didn't you cook those Angus patties you bragged about getting on sale?" Their answer...." We forgot about using the grill."

Point being, we should always be ready to sustain ourselves and be ready to help teach those who just don't seem to get the concept of taking care of themselves.

I guess the issue with the water is they have to pump it into those tanks on top of the building? I understand it's an inconvenience but don't they know you can bucket water into the toilet?

Cap, that reminds me of this from last year:

I'll have to be honest and say my Mother is the same way. The first time the power went out here for a few days when we first moved in before we got the generator we were kind of in the same situation. I'm boiling water on the grill for coffee and she's like "What are you doing?". Me personally we used to do a 8 day canoe trips so a few days without power is an adventure for me. These people are so dependent on other people it's ridiculous, no common sense, no preparation etc.

I'll never forget the first time my wife and I lost power. She grew up in a house with a well pump so when I flushed the toilet she yelled at me not to do it. She never knew if you have city water, the toilets still work. :)

Just imagine how bad things will be if there is a more widespread disaster covering a far greater area.

My wife two days before Sandy asks, do you think I should go food shopping and get propane for the grill?

I replied, do you want to eat for the month we're without power? She replied, Yes.
