    North Dakota News

    This text is from a county emergency manager out in the western part of North Dakota state after the recent snow storm.

    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 that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of communities 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 visit

    Our Mayor's did not blame Bush or anyone else

    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 snow storm

    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 anything either

    No Larry King, No Bill O'Rielly, No Oprah, NoChris Mathews and No Geraldo Rivera

    No Shaun Penn, No Barbara Striesand, No Hollywood types to be found

    And, we just melted the snow for water

    Sent out caravans of SUV's to pluck people out of snow engulfed cars

    The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks 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 - total strangers

    We Fired up wood stoves

    Broke out coal oil lanterns or Coleman lanterns

    We put on an extra layers of clothes because up here it is "Work or Die"

    We did not wait for some affirmative action gvernment 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 this scale has never fallen this early...we know it can happen and how to deal with it

    Maybe ND is the place to retire. Self reliance is good!

    Ah, my neighbor the the North! Just about as free as beautiful South Dakota!

    Self-reliance is very self-assuring.

    I am heading up North of the border for a visit soon, first out of state CCW. One of the few neighboring states that reciprocates with SD. Oddly, IA NE and MN neighbors don't see things eye to eye with us.
