Speaking of EMP, you know what structure tends to protect against EMP?
Mobile homes. So if the commies set off a nuke in space, most of the working electronics in the country will be owned by rednecks.
Yep...good spot. They touched on this on Conspiracy Theory one night and basically all the US would have to do to protect against an EMP attack or extreme solar flares is install some sort of super-grounding components to the infrastructure power grid.
