Just Another Sunday Buried in Snow
I cannot really tell because of the blowing snow, but it looks like we may have only received about 6" to 7" instead of the possible 20" plus had the lovemaking of the two lows actually happened. I am grateful. My snow blower is grateful. And my dog is grateful. She's a squatter, not a lifter.
Because there is nothing worth watching on the tube and its colder than a fart in a dead Eskimo outside, I had nothing better to do,....... Hmm ........well I am sure I have many things better to do, but I decided it would be better to do them another time.
Anyway, I surfed the internet highways and came upon a new trend among uber elite and super rich. Apparently, rather than taking some of their wealth and applying it philanthropically to forestall the upcoming societal breakdown, that wealth is being used to purchase safe haven getaways and fancy bomb shelters. Citing riots that have broken out throughout the world because of the growing inequality, land is being purchased in New Zealand, islands in all the oceans are being snatched up, and bomb shelters are being planted in remote areas of the country side.
I am not sure what to say here. It seems to me that if society breaks down around the globe, owning a bomb shelter or an island getaway will not save them. If society breaks down, the imaginary wealth they have stashed in imaginary accounts will be one of the first things to go poof. Eventually they will need to re-supply and what do they do then? If the ship sinks, I am pretty sure we will all go down with it.
Keep it 'tween the ditches .........................
