Re: “The MLGW Groundhog

County residents also "pay the fees and submit to the policies" of numerous other companies. Maybe Roland should demand a seat on the board of Kroger.

Re: “#Babykillers, lottery, and buskers

About the dairy, with tier 4 final engines, Def fluid, SCR and other exhaust filtering systems in place on the dairy trucks the exhaust is actually cleaner than the air going in the engines. Or so we have been told by the EPA who forced these systems on Diesel engines. So where are all of these "fumes" coming from that's everyone in the neighborhood is so scared of?

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

"It's not paranoia. It's Standard Operating Procedure."...no, not really w/regard to our country. Alex Jones believes that though. All of the people at the major agencies I know are as straight laced as they come. My personal anecdotes aside, if our people are lying to us all of the time we would have collapsed long ago. Again - not everything is a plot.

"It isn't 'the thing of movies and Infowars' to point that out", my double meaning must have been misunderstood. I was mocking those sources as potentially accurate for anything. My error if anyone believed I was suggesting they were anything other than Jules Verne worthy.

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

Yeah...like a link that starts with "www.fox.news.com/opinion" is going to contain any eye-opening truth about the Obama presidency. You're going to try a whole lot harder than that ALJ2. But, nice try, JA....

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

@ Oaktree - Oh...now that they are in "bad light" with your guy, we should completely mistrust them? I don't anyone in their right mind that has complete trust in any branch of the govt these days....but I trust them a whole hell of a lot more than I'll ever trust Trump.

I saw on the news this morning, that Russian foundry has issued a Trump commemorative coin, that's inscribed, "In Trump we Trust"; a very expensive one, at that. I can't remember that happening for any previous president... Coincidence? I think not, comrade. You may want to start those Russian language lessons now, Oakie..

And not only that, they are blocking ALJ2's ability to provide links to crucial sites!!

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

@datGuy - There would BE NO investigative journalism, if there weren't things which people want to remain hidden. The discovery of wrongdoing in government frequently requires FOI requests and legal action. But with the intelligence agencies, claims of national security and redacted records make that discovery all but impossible in many cases.

This problem is no different now, than it was in 1963. It isn't 'the thing of movies and Infowars' to point that out. After all, the records on what happened to MLK only were released a couple years ago. How many other things have the FBI and CIA been doing that you didn't know about? The fact is, you don't even know how much you don't know.

You can't.

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

And some think Trump is bad - we've just had eight years of lies, hypocrisy and an unprecedented erosion of freedom under a President who couldn't lead and governed by unconstitutional Executive decree. Here's just one more example mostly ignored by his sycophants in the "media":

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

Yup oak, some bad things have happened. Impuning all of their work is nonsense. There's many good people doing good work at those places, making sure we are safe. Suggesting all, most or even many are plots undetectable by the many controls in place is the thing of movies and Infowars with faked moonlandings and US plots to blow up the WTC.

Re: “The Only Two Questions That Matter

It's amazing to me how many people have blind trust in the intelligence agencies in this country. Even worse, pointing out that a little healthy skepticism is indicated when appraising their work, is all too often met with vapid 'tin-foil hat' accusations.

Here's a little something about what the FBI did to MLK:

It's not paranoia. It's Standard Operating Procedure.

Re: “Key Political Moves Underway in Memphis and Nashville (UPDATED)

Elections are not the same thing as campaigning. Reading comprehension.

Elections take a day. The problem with 'this perpetual campaigning business', is that it is big business. The longer the campaigns run, the more money they take. And the money involved to run them corrupts our political system.

Here's a NY Times article on how Britain deals with that issue:

Re: “Sierra Club Protests Trump's EPA Choice

Protesting is a great way to show your feelings.

Deep research into things they've done online to make them radioactive to the Republican party....a priceless goldmine.
