EPA Sec. Jackson Gulf Coast Restoration Event Gets Yeas, Nays
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

Today, Lisa Jackson, Secretary of the EPA and the point person for helping to restore the Gulf of Mexico issued this statement on her Facebook page:

"In Pensacola, FL today for the 1st meeting of the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force. We're meeting with nearly 300 folks from the region to discuss the work ahead. Millions of Americans rely on the Gulf for their well-being and their way of life and restoring it is an issue that cuts across party lines. This ...will be the 1st of many meetings as we set the restoration effort in motion."

Well, some Facebook readers like what Secretary Jackson posted, then, not everyone has responded with such enthusiasm:

    • Mary Veglia Mobley Please listen to the people and be tolerant if they are upset. We have a lot of reason to be upset, and a lot of us don't feel well. (Must be all that "soap" - AKA dispersant - sprayed on us.)

    • So the meeting is about ECO system and not health???? If you really want to do the job the President wants you to do you best learn to listen to the folks you work for....The coastal people... and other citizens of AMERICA.. People from all... up and down the coast came to that meeting today to get answers and issues addressed.. We will never be quiet and the economy will never get better along the coast until you all listen to all the issues.. We do not need to keep having different meetings for different issues.. The task force encompasses many agency's.. What is your problem with not addressing all issues??? We will just get louder and louder ...You cannot afford to not listen to us...The President will be hearing from MANY more of us...See More

    • Laura Dikovsky Smith Very disappointed in reports coming from meeting! What is wrong w/you people. We figured out a long time ago that you don't care one iota about the people or creatures of the Gulf & that something sinister is up but you could at least show a tad of respect while down there & not joke about being there. Why did you even bother to go there? A PR stunt? People are getting really weary. The lies, the games, it all has to stop now!!!!!!!!

    • The tactic being used at this meeting is very well known...responsible agencies and parties break up into groups and concerned individuals can speak to an individual at each group. Only a few individuals are allowed to ask questions in fro...nt of the whole assembly at the very beginning. The purpose is to dilute the impact of the questions as everyone was asking questions of each individual group and so not able to hear everything else that is going on. It can cause controlled chaos and damped down the participants. Also the media can not focus on any one subject either. And so now, well, well, well, what do u you know, they don't even let the media in. Really stupid as this allows the questioners the chance to hold their own press conference. I'm sure everybody will jump on that media/press opportunity if it becomes available. If not, there is always pressrelease@"whatever media outlet-fill in the blank".com right from your cell p...and TRUST ME!! It will be well utilized...

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.
