What does everybody think of the documentary called American Blackout,, I found it strange that only 2-3 months ago had a similar doc over here in the UK about a cyber attack and a blackout, do you think they are preparing us for what is to come?

Yeah recorded it and watched it last night, to be honest it seems very realistic and it shows how much we rely on electricity , the only thing about the program it only shows when the lights go back on again after 2 half to weeks later and not the aftermath which would be just as bad, another thing it made the fema camps as a sort of haven and while it did point out the police and army treating the people like animals, the message I got was expect it.

i am old enough to remember the power cuts in the 1970s (3 day week strike) as a kid and as a family we dealt with it, there were a hell of a lot less cars and we were not reliant on things were are today.

{Ed001's Note - what is the point of them though? There is no need for there to ever be a blackout, the only reason the US suffers from so many power outages currently is due to antiquated power lines etc. All it needs is for the electricity companies to invest money in updating the infrastructure and there would be no problem.}

I suppose it makes sense to allow a cyber attack to happen and blame someone else for the dollar to collapse and let the people to be even more dependent on what the government wants, ie a new tax on security incase it happens again.

But that eats into the profits ed and then shareholders have to have less dividends.

Agree4 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - ah yes, sorry, I wasn't thinking about money, I was thinking about quality of life for the general population. So silly of me!}

Haha someone thinking of shareholders profits?do not tell me you also think of the queens heating allowance?

Agree1 Disagree0

Ed/ Franky I think the guy was being tongue in cheek in saying why they don't upgrade infrastructure and the like. Which let's face it is more than likely true!

Mort

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I was being tongue in cheek as well Mort, don't worry. He is right though, it is purely profit that is stopping them acting.}

Yeah read it back guys prob was a wind up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Long day Ed, hate Mondays. Should be abolished.

Didn't the big 6 energy companies over here pay out 7 Billion in dividends last year? Then have the gall to stick prices up 9-10% each and blame "costs".

Mort

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - it was certainly a huge payout in divvies last year, not sure of the exact amount. It is sickening that they are even allowed to put the prices up after making such obscene profits while old people are left to choose between keeping warm or eating. That is one of those legacies we are left with from the Thatcher era though, when everyone was happy to sell off our services because they thought they might make a few quid from the shares. Greed is never a good thing!}

7 billion was the figure I saw. It wouldn't be a surprise if it was in that ball park. Its an essential service.

Wasn't one of the "excuses" used in the sell off that state monopoly's were poorly run, in debt etc and that the private sector could do a better job?

In that case then, now having learned how to run a company properly, who's to say that renationalisation wouldn't work?

Mort

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - being state run was never the problem anyway. Private companies are poorly run and in debt everywhere, so it was never about that. You are right though, it was one of the excuses used, about time they did nationalise them again.}

Kinda gone off subject here but when ed sayed pensioners had to chose whether to heat there homes or feed them selfs it got me thinkin of the full state of the country and benefit system!. couple of years ago ma riend got beat up and took a stroke at 16 damaged down his full left side and some minor brain damage he continued to work till late 20's untill he cooldnt do it anymore he applyed for sick money to be told no then on appeal he gets lowest form of incapacity benefit ( I thik that's what he gets). now also know a boy who has a slash on his face and he recieves full benefit sick money and the rest he gets lots more money thn my friend who worked hard untill he cooldnt no more! the boy with the slash is cider warrior valium head and compulsive gambler! is it me or am I missing the point to why he recieves more money than someone who really does need the help?someone please enlighten me.
