Retired Lt. Gen. Honoré managed to fill not only air time, but bandwidth, explaining that disasters can happen at any time, tragedy "can result if we fail to prepare", and "each of us has a personal responsibility to be ready".
I guess maybe this is news for some people. Maybe some people thought it was the government's job to prepare for disaster, and that the government would take care of them when disaster struck. Maybe some people believe in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, too.
Look, when the dead have risen and are staggering through the streets in search of human brains, the government is not going to be there to help you. The only representatives of the government you will see during the Zombocalypse will be soldiers, who will try to kill you, and guys in lab coats or hermetically sealed bunny suits who will try to use you for hideous experiments in a misguided attempt to find a cure.
As Gen. Obvious said, come the big disaster, surviving it is your responsibility. Yours, your family's, and your community's. Not the government's. It'll probably be the government that accidentally releases the brain-eating zombie virus in the first place.
