Bombs in Your Backyard

Great article.

By Abraham Lustgarten.
July 20th, 2017 .


Open Burns , Ill Winds

The Pentagon's handling of Munitions and their waste has poisoned millions of acres, and have left Americans to guess at the threat to their health.

Other countries have found ways to not use open burn sites . Why is it that America never wants to lead the way. Seems like a no Brainer for both parties to work on this type of clean up.

So there apparently aren't any burn sites here in MI, and most are south and west of the Mason-Dixon line. Oddly enough, only two in Texass and one in Twisterhoma, where their residents' health isn't a high priority...frack...frack...frackitty. Besides we don't need the MIC to poison our denizens' tap water, b/c our state government has BTDT.

Given who Drumpf has installed as head of the EPA in Scott Pruitt, the opposite is far more likely to occur...until '20 @ least.

America leads the way all the time with regard to a lot of things. It's just surprising how much we drag out feet on some things.
