I'm so happy that The Charleston Gazette has finally learned about Operation Northwoods, in which every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff approved of a plan to use the U.S. personnel to attack Americans secretly in order to start a war with Cuba. I learned of it around 2000, shortly before 9/11. Perhaps you will now be more respectful of the people you disparage as "conspiracy theorists."
To the person complaining about President Obama "stepping over the line" and bypassing Congress more often than not, he really has no choice if he wants to accomplish anything, because the majority of Congress is made up of the "party of no" and the crackpot "tea party" to which you probably belong.
Were the governor to ask, I would suggest he appoint Dave Callaghan to a blue ribbon commission to investigate, and recommend, following the chemical/water crisis. Dave's analysis was spot-on, and his advice should be valued and heeded by us all. He served under three governors, and was tough and protective when it came to our state's natural resources.
I have heard similar criticisms made toward domestic violence victims that Ms. Harrop made at victims of the chemical spill. Domestic violence victims choose to marry and stay with abusers often and become defensive when authorities step in, just as we elect and reelect politicians and allow our home to be abused. Both do so because of economic issues and because they have nowhere else to go to feed their children. I wonder if she would call abused spouses a cult.
I support David Callaghan's recommendations as written in the Sunday Gazette. The public water supply should be owned by the public, not Wall Street investors, who have shown little concern for West Virginia. Ask Mayor Jones to start the process to acquire West Virginia American water for the city of Charleston.
If our right to bear arms has no exceptions, do we have the right to bear missiles and nuclear bombs?
I am amused about others' concern about breakfast cereals' taste. Almost all breakfast cereals are nothing but a conglomeration of chemicals and corn syrup engineered to be addictive and people are stupid to eat them. I think it is child abuse to feed them to children.
Thank you, Dayton Carpenter, for the information that the public needs to know related to the water crisis. We now know what should be done to regain WV Water customers' trust. I just wonder why the water company didn't implement his suggestions before now. Maybe the water company should hire him as a consultant.
