Southwest Louisiana State Reps don't want Ebola incinerated waste
Written by 

ebola-bed Louisiana Southwest State Representatives are speaking out about a recent news report that Louisiana would host Ebola-related incinerated waste from the Dallas dwellings.

 

Here is a statement from Louisiana state representatives from the related region:

“A basic function of government and of this legislature is to protect the citizens of Louisiana from foreseeable harm due to infectious disease. We wholeheartedly support the efforts of the Louisiana Attorney General in his attempt to prevent the transportation to Louisiana of potentially hazardous waste removed from a deceased Ebola infected patient’s dwelling.  The Ebola virus and outbreak is a new threat with many unknowns, including the possible risks of waste disposal.  It has become clear that this virus poses potential risks that require extreme care, a high level of training, constant supervision and extremely careful handling. We should move slowly and carefully to understand all the risks before transporting this material to a Louisiana landfill for disposal.”

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
