Report: Woman cooking shrimp finds "sludge" on bottom of pan -- "We feel like we are being lied to on so many levels"


Grand Isle rally proves BP oil spill, repercussions far from over for Gulf Coast residents, Times-Picayune, November 20, 2010:

"We feel like we are being lied to on so many levels," said Mac MacKenzie of NOLA Emergency Response, a volunteer group formed after the spill. MacKenzie told the crowd about troubling results of independent tests she said were conducted on a batch of shrimp she bought at a dock in Venice.

Some of the official tests for seafood safety looked only at shrimp that had been deveined and did not test the heads or shells, she said. When she made a stock from the shrimp she bought, she said, there was "sludge" on the bottom of the pan. ...

Peter Brabeck, an environmental monitor for the group Louisiana Bucket Brigade, said that testing procedures are "inadequate" and tests are not being done for all potentially dangerous chemicals.

    RAISE THE CONFEDERATE FLAG IN A SHOW OF SOLIDARITY BEFORE YOU ARE TOO SICK, DYING, OR DEAD. THE GOM WAS AN ACT OF WAR AND TREASON AGAINST THE SOUTHERN PEOPLES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. ONE UNION, UNDER GOD WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

  • They won't admit it was an "act of war" until they have you completely surrounded -- if it was. I don't know what MARTIAL LAW is like, but I'm certain any excuse will have the police state cherubs rushing, and pushing in from the perimeter.

    Best to avoid it if possible. If not, you all must be of the same mind. That's everyone.
