Frying Pan to Fire

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, 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.
