So the president has appointed the nation’s Fire Administrator, David Paulison, acting director of FEMA. Great. He’s best known for the boost he gave the duct tape industry in 2003.
[From CNN.com, 2/11/2003] On Tuesday, less than 24 hours after U.S. Fire Administrator David Paulison described a list of useful items, stores in the greater Washington, D.C. area reported a surge in sales of plastic sheeting, duct tape, and other emergency items.
These items, Paulison said, can be helpful after a biological, chemical or radiological attack.
Helpful? A family of four in a sealed 12′ x 12′ bedroom risks carbon dioxide poisoning within 2-3 hours. Let’s hope Paulison isn’t another Michael Brown.
Of course, as we point out in our last two P.I.D. Radio shows, FEMA’s purpose isn’t disaster relief and recovery anyway; it’s hiding critical government employees safely below ground when things go to hell here on the surface for you and me.
Thanks to Global News Matrix for spotting this.
