The Agony of Ted Koppel

It’s tough, having foresight. Knowing of the coming train wreck before it happens. Yelling your head off, only to be ignored, ostracized by our fearful leaders. To borrow one of their quotes, “I feel your pain.” 

I read this article http://www.insidesources.com/koppel-homeland/ with the hopes that maybe someone is paying attention.

Ted Koppel is now experiencing something with which I’m quite familiar, disdain and dismissal by those empowered to protect us. He’s crying out about the woeful lack of protection against cyber-attack in our country. Join the club, Mr. K. Some of us have been writing about this for years without getting any traction with the powers that be.

Specifically, Mr. K. is upset about the fragility of the electrical power grid. He right, it’s not being guarded properly by those in Washington. Then again, they really don’t care. 

When, not IF, the power grid goes down, they’ll have plenty of back-up generators and, in worst case scenarios, they’ll escape into their underground bunkers with their supplies of food and water to wait out the disaster.

Maybe Mr. Koppel would like to get on The List. That very exclusive club of those ‘worth saving’ who will be allowed to partake in the hidden supplies. It’s a very short list and you, my fellow Americans, aren’t on it. No, my chumps in arms, we will be limited to fending for ourselves.

So, look down at that cord which stretches from your computer, TV, air conditioner, phone, etc. etc….trace it to the source. Then realize that it’s all that’s keeping your life, as you know it, going. When the power goes off, your party is over.

As for the solar people, yes, you’ll have a fully charged whatever, phone, TV, computer….but who you gonna call when the main switching center, the cell towers, all the servers are down?

Take comfort, they make handy night lights, when the power goes out.
Buy lighters, matches and candles now, before they become scarce.
Remember the last time the folks in Washington helped you?
Yeah, me too. 
I can’t recall the last time.

As for Mr. Koppel, hang in there, the lights aren't out yet.
