Of course when the next natural disaster comes and affects THEM they're just like everyone else and will expect the government to help them out.

Basically.

Ounce of prevention, pound of...what was it again?

Normally that might be a pickle. But with a massive US naval base just a short ways away the could probably manage to rescue quite a few people. Especially if they had advanced warning.

Of course we will build on/around/under all those things and then after we lose billions maybe even trillions we will build on/around/under them again.

Yup. It's a MONSTER.
If that thing goes, it's time to kiss America goodbye - maybe mankind in general. A Yellowstone eruption could be an "extinction event" - similar to what wiped out the dinosaurs. Not much we could do about that one - matter how much warning we had.

Yes, I realize that. I was just being sarcastic about someone saying it would "only" affect 30,000.

That's why you don't work for the Hawaiian government. I'd venture to say you haven't been to Hawaii, either. The island of Hawaii (where one of the volcanoes is) is called "the big island" for a reason. There are plenty of places to evacuate people. Do you think the Hawaiian Islands are about the size of Three Mile Island or what? Do you not live in an area that is subject to natural disasters where you might have to evacuate to a safer place? You seem to be incredibly naive.

Could be I guess.

Anyway, no one can say for sure how the guy votes - and that's the way it should be.

Ken

No, that is not what I was saying and if it was I would have said it.

No, I'd mock him because he comes across as condescending and moronic in front of a camera. That he's an Indian with a Texas accent is merely comic relief.
