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.”

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
