Brian, about a year ago I took a poll of many of my most respected friends in regards to their plans and preparations for the impending Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake.
(I don't call it "The Big One" because I don't want to sound like an idiot)
The response was unbelievably irresponsible, right across the board.
Right out of the chute, about 75% did not believe there is any threat.
The rest gave me this mind numbing response, something like, "Oh, I just don't worry about things like that. When it it's my time to go, it's my time to go."
My guess is that you are talking to the wall.
Our generation is so spoiled that they may not even be able to conceive of hardship or calamity in their life until it happens and then they play the victim.
Realize that your awesome, conservative, anti tax and spend battle against the 3rd bridge has many layers.
Good luck on the earthquake argument. "We didn't have an earthquake yesterday; I'm sure we won't have one tomorrow."
Chicken today, feathers tomorrow, and the hell with the next day.
That is a summation of our sorry generation.
