Old Sol is the likely agent to zap our Electric Grid. The last major Solar Event occurred when there was virtually little to upset, Sept. 2, 1859, The Carrington Event.

What I find curious is that it almost sounds like we are being apologetic, as if we need a credible excuse to control, to even have a Border! I worry less about an Electomagnetic Pulse than I do the rapidly changing demographics, say here in Red State Texas. Purple, and Blue are on the horizon per Electoral College status for Texas. The Left here openly brag that this is being pushed along and is on its way. THIS is the in your face, Escalating Threat of an American Catastrophe! But hey, don’t worry, be happy….

Per an EMP or Solar Flare Event, here we seem clueless too, like not having a Border. There is no excuse for this. The Air Force long ago chased down this problem, but we regular people will be face to face with riots, starvation, ruin… should a solar eruption happen. And it will someday happen.

So lets stop the invasion, secure The Border, and prepare for any wild and crazy Electron Invasion too. Win Win.

Scary stuff! I just saw you carousing on WZ, so thought I better stop in and see what you’ve got for news. 😀
