Why don't they threaten to throw the bastards in jail?

Rog here: I am just curious...... Why business and govt. agencies don't threaten to throw these lying bastards in jail. The CIO's, Agency heads, and CEO's of business who are lying through their teeth, telling us things will be fixed, when even the most moronic know they won't. These same people are stockpiling for themselves, then when all hell breaks loose, they will run to their hideouts, and leave us with nothing. I work for an ambulance service and most of our patients are medicare/medicaid. When the gov stops paying medicare bills, who will pay ambulance services? or hospitals, or any other related service? Medicare is probably one of the most crucial fixes needed. Sick old people need an ambulance...no ambulance = no health care.. no health care = dead old people....dead old people = spread of disease. ya' can't just throw 'em away...ya' know. It really pisses me off that the corporate heads, and gov. officials think we are so stupid. Yet in any case, they'll just walk off into the sunset to their prepared shelters. Me 'an my AK hope some of 'em come this way....'no what ah mean Vern!

Hi Rodger

Sounds like your a little upset and justifiably so. I think the answer to your question is to ask a question. "Can you arrest someone for killing and individual just because they said they are going to." No the individual can not be arrest for killing the individual - thus - until tshtf and the Y2K bug has crawled from under wherever it was hiding and then prove that individuals have been damaged - nothing or no one can be blamed for doing nothing. It's like watching someone smoking when they fill their gas tank. Someone has to take the friggin smoke from the guy and shove it up their ass before they get the message. Same here - nothing has happen and you can not fault someone for something that might happen. I share your frustration but them is the rules. Good luck in whatever you do and until the problem happens - keep up the good work.
