    "They are STILL suffering the effects of the BP oil spill". Pleas to the White House and Congress go unanswered because it is evident our government, and I might add, military are defending, BP.
    Look about and see what all these agencies and organizations are doing? Where is FEMA, and the National Guard, the Corps. of engineers, the Army, Navy ,Air Force..?
    The CDC and the EPA--bought and paid for.
    In Washington the string are pulled by Steven Chu and his crones check them out ---. How long has it it been since the prez and his cronies visited the GOM? No matter the band wagon of Washington liars are of no use to the people.
    How do all these agencies, etc. pull this off?--- the corruption of the local officials.
    Health effects what health effects? They also want the people to suffer in silence.

    .. Heck..Let's check the care and mercy of the "morale majority..
    Let's check the patriotism of the patriot groups. Protect the people or defend hate?

    Don't count on the government or agencies to make any genuine efforts to assist mankind in living a cleaner, healthier life.

    Who puts flouride and prozac in our water for us to drink? Who allows private companies to spray whatever the heck they want over our heads -- and force us to breathe those experimental chemicals; you know, in order to find out what the chemicals will do to living tissue? Which of our legislators signed the bills allowing these experiments to be used on us.

    Our bodies and health are considered their vessels to do with as they see fit.

    Who is salivating to k*ll the old, the disabled -- or anyone who doesn't fit their "useful" category?

    Why has Obamacare been thrust upon us? Why is Eugenics being discussed openly?

    Did they in the aftermath of Katrina !

  • xdrfox:

    Yes they did: After Katrina, and you do recall, Blackwater was used to shoot anyone who attempted to cross that bridge and get away from the water and lack of supplies. They prevented an elderly woman -- in a wheelchair from going across to get medical care.

    The doctors, at the local hospital got out. They euthanized [k*lled] over twenty elderly patients before they left. The doctors were charged, but got off. A van full of people on cots and all using oxygen, were burned to death when the oxygen exploded: There was no one there who knew that oxygen and gas/oil fumes don't bode well where safety is concerned.

    Katrina is when we learned that FEMA is not put in place for the welfare of the people, but are put in place to *protect* structures, businesses and property.

    As a late 60's Viet Nam Vet. That was deserted in that aftermath of that False Flag Attack by ALL... I can tell you that many things I said to folks back then thought as were a mad mans speakings. Sadly it it still true, even on our own soil, The Madness of Authority to do as it wishes and many not know the truths !!
