Did you ever think you’d be rooting for Newt?

For all of the controversy over the controversial politician, Newt Gingrich has been one of the few people to come forward and address something no one else will: The fact that we need to survive the eventual solar storm or EMP strike that may cripple the infrastructure of the United States.. 
Newt and his panel of people (maybe a lot of rabid neo-cons, and perhaps I am just blinded by the sunlight on the headline here) are upset that there is little happening to protect the US from the eventual.. the fact that nine out of ten Americans could face sudden death..
I do get it, though.. this group seems to be most concerned about man-made terrorism.. the fear, the fiendishness.. all of that ..and yes, the big ‘uumph’ seems to be planting seeds of Armageddon fear that a EMP or nuclear attack from North Korea will kill us all. But.. maybe it could.
And if those manmade evils aren’t bad enough, what if the sun blurts out the ‘big one’? (The big one from the sun is something I have written about for years on this site, should you have been someone paying any attention) …
We all know this. The grid is riddled with failure-potentials.
