    Every Government institution that regulates society's livelihood has failed. In fact, it's a reflection of the worped politics on TV.

  • Chat Noir says:

    The Trump administration put a former industry lobbyist as head of the EPA. At the EPA, nearly half of the political appointees hired by the Trump Administration have had strong ties to industries regulated by the agency industry, and about a third of these EPA appointees formerly worked as registered lobbyists or lawyers for fossil fuel companies, chemical manufacturers, or other corporate clients:

  • Rob Donaldson says:

    This is a 30 year old story. Nothing new here

  • Chat Noir says:

    In 2019, Bernie introduced the Water Affordability, Transparency, Equity, and Reliability (WATER) Act of 2019 with Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley. The legislation will be a step toward making sure public water services are functional and guaranteeing that water is safe, clean, and affordable.

    The bill was introduced on the heels of reports that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is delaying a plan to set limits on Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances, or PFAS, in drinking water and soil:

    Demonotize. Create an off grid system for your town. Trade goods, not money, with other towns. Live in the town with the laws and work you like best. Towns compete to attract your family because of your potential. Towns with liberal freedoms and dignified work will attract the most potential. Towns buy water etc. Demonotize.

  • grumerguy says:

    I've been hollaring about how the PFAS have gotten into the Ogallala aquifer, which is the aquifer that my well feeds from. I haven't drank the water from my tap in two years, but my dogs do, and I've lost three of them to cancer, and I lost my cat too. I live fairly close to the airbase in clovis. A cattle rancher who lives even closer lost his entire herd to this. So. I don't drink my well water anymore.

  • woody ahh says:

    Filter your water

  • Darrel Pingleton says:

    And this right here is when you open your eyes and see the "government" doesnt have anyone's best interest in mind. I mean a photo of them spraying kids with dangerous chemicals. That they knew exactly when they were making these non natural chemicals and compounds that they were dangerous and still did many things. If you haven't see THE DEVIL WE KNOW on Netflix you should as this talks about these chemicals and stuff like non stick pan cookware we all eat out of everyday is poisoning us and is one of the biggest contributors of cancer and illness in this country.
