here we go again

its erin brockovich vs pg&e part two.

they believed the company that the water was safe? are you serious!!! there was a major chemical leak in the ground in your town and many people got very sick from it, the company paid your city money and said they would clean it up so you go back to drinking the water? wtf?  they never thought to get the water tested by an independent source on an semiannual basis to insure that their water was okay to drink? people who don't even live where something like that has happened do that. no their just gonna go by what the company who paid them off says that their personal water is okay. i don't get it...
 if money is the issue which it shouldn't be with the size of the settlement, they can send water samples to their county extension office to get it tested for FREE! you would think someone would have looked into that a bit sooner rather than just relying on the company who poisoned them in the first place to guess whether or not their water was safe. did the company come out and test it?
and i am certainly not saying that the company here is not at fault. they knew the plume had moved further in one direction but thought it was okay because it shrank on a different side. but yet they never told the people in that direction that it had changed. and monitoring it is not anywhere near the same as attempting to clean it up. they are saying now that they are willing to test the water, if anyone solely goes by their findings they are an idiot. number 1- they should have been having every ones water within a 20 mile radius tested by an independent resource this whole time, at least twice a year. number 2- if they were ordered to clean it up, why wasn't anyone monitoring them to make sure that they did.  number three- why wasn't the epa monitoring the situation since they certainly knew there to be a problem. as long as their going for another round of lawsuits they may as well add the epa to their list of negligent companies as well.

"don't tell cause i don't want to know" said the priest

so apparently some of the clergy in the military (60 something at last count) don't agree with the military getting rid of their don't as don't tell policy. mainly the ones of the Evangelical persuasion. because they feel it is morally wrong and goes against their beliefs.
 is anyone else wondering WTH they are doing as clergy then? what happened to love thy neighbor as thy self? does that only apply to those neighbors that they believe are morally straight? 
and if they are offended by gays because it goes against the bibles teachings, what about all the other things that i am sure they participate in that also go against the bibles teachings?
such as touching the skin of a dead pig, does working on the sabbath count for football players? what about wearing clothes made out of two different cloths, there goes some parts of their uniform.
but. but, you might say most of those tenants are found in the old testament. ppffhhtt! is what i have to say about that. are ye now picking and choosing which parts of the bible to adhere to.
just admit that in this day and age some parts of it are no longer relevant, i know it's hard to do.

and another take on it could be okay you don't agree with it, fine then don't do it. judge not lest ye be judged.

i intend to lay it all out, how i really feel about the issues without worrying about offending anyone. if i offend you that is not my intention, my opinions are my own and i don't expect you to agree.
the world today is a troubling place and i feel like the common everyday people don't usually get a voice and go unheard. i finally decided enough! i will put my voice out there and if no one ever reads it at least i know that i got it out and did not keep silent.
i will post whenever i feel the need, which may be several times a day or once a week, whenever i feel the need to put my 2 cents in.

please feel free to comment even if you do not agree with what i have to say.
