Rolling Blackouts
Seems we made it through the storm ok, but now we're part of the "rolling" blackout area. Seems to "roll" this way often.

All I can think of is * promising to fix the electric grid a few year ago.

Must be payback time for the Enron thing.

We're warm, but safe.

JONES: That's right, ladies and gentleman. Welcome back to the show. (Where to begin?) Well, we might as well jump into this whole power crisis going on out in California... and it IS stage managed. This is from ABCNEWS.COM... all of it is up on INFOWARS.COM:

"CALIFORNIA OFFICALS IMPOSE ROLLING BLACKOUTS"

"For the first time in the state's month long energy crisis, officials ordered
power companies to shutoff electricity to parts of California."

Now... ladies and gentlemen. Remember, that the state governments, and
county governments of California (and city governments), own most of the stock in the power companies in their state. So... this the left hand... you know, trying to scold the other hand. It's a fraud... training the public that they can jack up prices.

"After weeks of warnings, rolling blackouts became a reality for California
residents today, when regulators ordered utility companies to turn off the
power to thousands of people, in parts of the state. The blackouts were
ordered shortly before noon --local time, in areas of northern and central
California and effected between 200,000 and 500,00 Pacific Gas and Electric
Company (PG&E) customers in the San Francisco area, and thousands more in Sacramento, Pedesto, and Kurloch(?), California"

And then it goes on to list other areas.

The servers that stream the audio for Internet listeners of this radio show...
and there are tens of thousands of them logging on... it's (they
have) pretty good servers there, and like... three or four T-1's to stream it
all out to you. They just turned the power for almost three or four hours,
yesterday... and luckily the folks at M2KTALK.COM that do the streaming for
Genesis Broadcasting, were able to go on backup power with generators.

But in the last few weeks, there have been other power blackouts, actually at the facility that streams out from there. We've been off the air on the
Internet. So, if you hear us off the air for three hours here, three hours
there, when we've never really had any problems in the past, you can be
assured that it's our loving friends of Governor Gray Davis, out in
California.

(It's) just amazing... to watch the developments out there, as the state
begins to squeeze the power companies in an effort to ensure that they can
jack up prices in the future... just like the phony energy crisis of the
nineteen-seventies in this country. And, now the history on that is
absolutely clear.
