It is always interesting to watch a collective compiled journey of a forgotten force. I may be incorrect, however, it always seems the Republican party slings a little more mud.
There was a TV series, The Lone Gunmen, that aired for 1 3 episodes and it was created and ran in 2001 before September 11, 2001. I watched an episode and it was eerie, it was about a plane crashing into the World Trade Center. This just left a weird feeling, a million scenarios, incidents can happen in a life time, to see it played out on a TV show , it makes for questions of coincidence.
What ever happened to the investigation of 9/11? There are so many unanswered questions regarding this incident. Remember the Michael Moore documentary Sicko with all the rescue responders that got ill? Well, a lot of them have died ,and after 9 years, others still have no health coverage, why? I put Jon Stewart’s link to the Daily Show, he is my man, always putting fire under much needed cabooses!
After the air date of Dec. 16, 2010 , Mr. Stewart caused some ruckus , enough to get emergency responders some of the help they so desperately need!!! Check it out!
The airport security is really flawed, with today’s perfecting technology there should be a better security system in place. I do not want a strangers hands all over me, radiation exposure, or a public naked picture of me. I do not want my freedoms to be penalized for inadequate security measure strategies. Today, Science and Technology are capable of a far more efficient, system.
What are the rules for private air travelers?
With the US Intelligence and Security Agencies in America, there are better alternatives. We lead the globe with our military background, we are a powerhouse and yet we resort to less than security measures!! Something smells foul.
Ron Paul Talks TSA on Freedom Watch 11/22/10
Whether it was the leak of the Vietnam war or the Iraq war, These men did all this work to wake us up , inform us of the cover ups of wars!!!! History is always repeating itself. The people, places, fear lingo, etc. are different, however, the strategies of cover up are repeated. They are doing a witch hunt with Assange just like they did with Daniel Ellsberg , The Most Dangerous Man In America (credit production to Judith Ehrlich , Rick Goldsmith plus others who made the story possible).
It is uncanny to watch this incredible interview and disappointing that we are right back in the same place with another wrongful war.
What are states doing about crawling tent communities from the west to the east coast? People are losing their jobs and their homes. We do not see this coverage on the news. One States local official indicated they did not want to appear like a 3rd world country, well wake up, it is happening! Some of these tent cities are being closed down, where are the people being moved to? Are states taking a look at their current homeless facilities or strategies? Thank goodness that citizens make news with their own videos.
Stories come and go , the important ones rarely are covered.
KCRATV reporting a year ago
Julian Assange is having his life work minimized by defamation of character. He is ahead of his time, seeing the demise of information with all the controlled journalism and media around the world. He is not popular with a lot of countries because his organization Wikileaks exposes all the secretive,greedy, government activities. Wiki leaks is telling us that we need to require more of our information providers throughout the world. What has happened to the code of journalism ? I want real, truthful news. This video relays important points in an interview with Chris Anderson.
There are adds being placed on Craigslist for oil clean up, individuals who have been through the process are posting, saying that it is all fraudulent. Somehow contractors put the word out they are hiring county workers for oil clean up. The contractors have you come in, fill out an application, then put you on a stand by list while getting paid by Bp for your application information. What is going on? Why say you are hiring if in fact you are not putting the applicants to work? How is compensation possible for these contractors? How is someones personal information being used for a contractors wages? Hundreds of workers locally were let go, red listed Aug 19th, p2s workers were let go on August 23rd.
P2s hired local county people from the get go, after July 26, everywhere you went whether it was the unemployment office or contractors , it was a requirement that you had to be a local resident of the county. There are all these stipulations put in place for workers when none of it is being adhered to. Who do the contractors answer to, we want full disclosure from them. They get the contracts and then 30% of the workers are local. Why is this allowed? Dan Thomas from Wear TV did story on, Local Oil Clean Up Crews Are Not 100% Local, this video along with others, can be found in the video listing on this link. All Local information reported regarding oil status.
I can only imagine the fiasco going on in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and other affected states. If you are a worker or someone that would like to share your experience, I would love to hear from you.
It seems they have cut certain contractors and replaced them with who knows…I saw the Sept. 19th article, For Contractors, Oil Spill Is Black Gold in PNJ regarding the web of contractors by Mr Griggs . I wish he would have pushed harder for full transparency, disclosure, of how the money was being charged back to BP and the break down of monies from contractor to the people cleaning up the oil. It is very secretive and convoluted for no reason, if BP wants to keep track of how it is paying out the 20 million. I’m still happy Mr. Griggs brought it to light , why did he encounter so much red tape reporting on it?
In oil clean up there was a no digging policy on Pensacola beaches !! I wonder if that has been lifted, there is a ton of oil embedded in the dry sand.
A big thank you to Mr. Dan Thomas from WEAR TV 3 for covering this and may other Oil cleanup issues
I want to know what the independent studies are, coming out of the gulf.
Thank You PNJ Journalist for covering stories in our local area of Pensacola, as well as our Gulf Of Mexico neighbors. This Oil Spill is a big deal to everyone! After various, denial attempts, BP is hopefully taking back “no oil “statements. Pensacola has several hot spots ( really all water in Gulf is a hot spot). Local Fishermen have been reporting seeing oil for months, they pull up the oil on their fishing equipment!
So does this mean I can go back to work? I want to clean up the oil!
Front page on the PNJ today” BP cutting crews“. A contractor, P2s, was let go with its people Monday at the Fort Pickens location (supposedly replaced by another contractor who will intern hire new people??, and will the workers be from out of state????). P2s employees went to Fort Pickens yesterday to protest and my hat goes off to them! If they are a functioning certified crew, why are they all being eliminated? And does it affect p2s in Perdido , Johnson area as well? P2s from my understanding hired all local people from Escambia county through the Workforce Escarosa Center( Unemployment office) not sure if neighboring Santa Rosa, or Okaloosa County residents fell into this Escambia clean up crew as well.
