It sure would be nice if the streets were actually visible on the WV American bad water map. It is an unreadable map.
Where is Delegate Tim Armstead, the minority leader, during this water crisis? Oh, I know, too busy tending to moral issues and looking at ways to protect polluting businesses, probably trying to get some more tax breaks for irresponsible business owners. That's what puts money in his campaign and his pocket. He has not done anything for the people in the 40th District.
Before all of the liberals start pointing fingers at Republicans concerning the chemical spill, let me remind them that Democrats have controlled this state and nearly every office and every department for over 80 years and President Obama's burgeoning EPA has had 6 years to inspect every plant, tank, river, and everything else and they have failed all of us at every level.
Why oh why have the citizens been superimposed with a burden of going without water because of a derelict and corrupt band of government officials. It is so apparent more than a few are involved.
The Weather Channel has become a joke these last few years. Nothing but stupid, fake reality shows and movies like every other channel on TV. Good riddance. Weather Nation, which took its place, is much better. At least it's about the weather.
In case you're worried by the fact that the U.S. only has 32 military bases on Okinawa Island, an island smaller than Long Island, you can breathe easier -- we're building a 33rd.
After what could have been a deadly situation with the chemical spill into the Elk River and what appears to be indifference by those responsible for the spill, one begins to wonder how many of our other rivers, creeks etc. have been dumping grounds and for how long.
So the French president was caught cheating on his mistress. No one could have seen that coming.
West Virginians, wake up! You're seeing first-hand what happens when the politicians in our state are bought and paid for by the coal and chemical companies.
Do you really trust what you are being told about the water? Will anyone be held accountable? Probably not. As long as the almighty coal industry runs this state, everything will be swept under the rug. Any state agency having to do with regulation of coal or anything associated with it has always been told to ignore safety rules.
