California continues to descend into Third World status. The latest step is planned blackouts.
No U.S. utility has ever blacked out so many people on purpose. PG&E says it could knock out power to as much as an eighth of the state’s population for as long as five days when dangerously high winds arise. Communities likely to get shut off worry PG&E will put people in danger, especially the sick and elderly, and cause financial losses with slim hope of compensation.
Blackouts. They’re not for Third World nations anymore, just states run by Dimocrats.
In October, in a test run of sorts, PG&E for the first time cut power to several small communities over wildfire concerns, including the small Napa Valley town of Calistoga, for about two days. Emergency officials raced door-to-door to check on elderly residents, some of whom relied on electric medical devices. Grocers dumped spoiling inventory. Hotels lost business.
Too bad. So sad.
PG&E is “essentially shifting all of the burden, all of the losses onto everyone else,” said Dylan Feik, who was Calistoga city manager until earlier this month.
This reminds me of the Ernestine skits on Laugh in with Lily Tomblin, when a customer, Gore Vidal, complained. “Oh Mr. Veedal, don’t be silly, we’re the phone company.”
Such a beautiful state ruined by liberal idiots.
