He died in his home.

The State of Michigan needs to stop scapegoating the men at the lower end of the water treatment issue. All these very nice people didn't have a worry in the world as long as they did their job as they did it for decades. It didn't matter that fifty year old documents were eaten by rodents or deteriorated into dust, everyone was just fine UNTIL the idiot and vindictive Governor Snyder took the rights away from the Mayor and Council of Flint. Then people became ill, died and were poisoned.

  • These low level personnel are not guilty and if Matthew died for any other reason except natural causes, there is still another death to add to the Governor's list of dead.

  • The people being scapegoated needs to know the State of Michigan doesn't have a case. It is a hardship on them and their families and they need to fight the charges and prepare lawsuits for wrongful prosecution.

    Paul LaPage:

    "...stick it in the microwave and it turns to some type of estrogen." - Homophobic

    "...narcan does not save lives it only prolongs life until the next overdose."
     - State Budget.

    What an ignoramus such as Paul LaPage doesn't realize is that the heroine crisis in the USA is directly related to prescription drugs. He should ask what' his name.....Lamebaugh how he is doing these days.

    There is an INDUCED ADDICTION SYNDROME within the USA. This heroine crisis has a path. Saving lives and being persistent to end the addiction is paramount to maintaining all our country's sovereign purpose. Every person that dies of heroine overdose brings the USA one more step closer to filling all the necessary jobs for our social fabric. 

    There is an example of how an obsession can challenge the sovereign right of a country. It is the fallen average age of Muslim men in the middle east.

    More than 28% of the population of the Middle East (click here) is aged between 15 and 29. Representing over 108 million young people, this is the largest number of young people to transition to adulthood in the region’s history. Young people 15 to 24 constitute approximately 20% of the populations in Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Yemen, Jordan, Algeria, and Saudi Arabia....

    Let's take this one more step.

    We know how ideological young men and women are at those very important young adult years. In the middle east being ideological regarding life is based in religious standards. We know those ideological standards include suicide to kill others in the name of Allah. I am not going to debate this disaster of a misinterpreted understanding of Mohammad's teaching, I'll just state it is wrong. Turning wonderful young people into human bombs while the Holy Man stands outside the circle applauding his power is ludicrous and I am being nice.

    Consider this. Twenty eighth percent of the populations in these countries are in those very volatile ages. We know how a group of criminal and estranged Saddam Ba'athists turned these young lives into weapons and sex slaves to provide a continual child soldier militia to carry out danger to other Muslims so the criminals have their idea of fun including their very lives. 

    What if a movement started by Daesh that would require a full devotion of their hearts and minds and is determined to displace people out of Italy so they could have a foot hold in Europe, what would happen to all those countries if they lost that very 28 percent of their population. Dead. The effort would fail and all those people would be dead. What would happen to the sovereign state of those countries, today and in one to two generations as there are losses of aged individuals dying of natural cause. Rather bleak. That is the equivalent of what Paul LaPage is stating about the very citizens of Maine. He is willing to allow people to become dependent on pain killers that will lead to heroine addiction and then fall off the edge. Dead.

    This is a social issue of monstrous proportion and he does nothing.

    Table 1.2A (click here)– Types of Illicit Drug Use in Lifetime, Past Year, and Past Month among Persons Aged 12 or 13: Numbers in Thousands, 2010 and 2011

    Heroine use in 12 or 13 years old in 2010 and 2011 was 8000. Eight thousand children in the United States of American in a very narrow age group use heroine.

    We should let them die? It isn't bad enough these children are actually using heroine, if they overdoes considering their body weight to drug intake, we should just let them die.

    Their society didn't protect them in the first place. The poppy economy in Afghanistan is flourishing to support completely horrible human beings such as the Haqqani network. In the USA we are suppose to allow children to die because despicable human beings raise and sell opium in a country protected by the USA military. We keep this up and it won't be just celebrities dying and we'll be losing our culture and our kids. How long does the USA have before it's culture collapses and their children languish in drug use? Do we let them die? Really?

    This entire drug crisis is nonsense. The USA military knows the drug routes. Fifteen years, military knowledge of the drug routes and our kids are playing with deadly drugs and our people are dying of overdoes. Where is the morality? Obviously, people like Ted LaPage doesn't understand the word morality when it comes to protecting the very country we live in.

    Another important talent leaves us at a very early age.

    Joan Laurer, (click here) the groundbreaking female wrestler known as Chyna, has died.
    Police in Redondo Beach, California, confirm that Laurer, 45, was found dead in her apartment on Wednesday. Police say they were notified by a friend who went to check on her and found Laurer unresponsive. The cause of death is under investigation, but police say there are no signs of foul play....

    The WWF has a strong content in Tea Party ranks. There are amateur groups flocked to by local social culture. The amateur groups add strong moral content to the Tea Party voters. A loss like this does hit them harder than one might expect, but, it should also be a reminder of the dangers of celebrity and predatory substances available in the USA.
    Prime Minister David Cameron and President Barak Obama:

    The Prime Minister's words regarding military directives falls on silent ears in the USA. There is NATO, but, there is no current AUMF that actually matters. The USA's Executive Branch, specifically the Secretary of Defense and President Obama are acting to protect NATO's nations and other allies without a valid AUMF as it pertains to terrorism. The one that has existed from the Bush administration is the language and the words stretched to disbelief by the American public. There is no legitimate AUMF against terrorism since the end of Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda that carried out the attacks of September 11, 2016. That was some times ago.

    Additionally, the American people have had enough of ineffective war and training of other country's military in the near east that adds no more security  the USA or NATO. We have seen criminal genocidal regimes manifest such as Daesh from a very wrongful war into Iraq that lead to the destabilization of the region. Britain was a supporter of the Bush coalition that carried out this immoral and illegal war into Iraq. We are now attempting to end the mistake with more involvement, that is completely wrong. The near east needs to have strong sovereign militaries and their own alliances. The near east and north Africa have had fellowship for decades known as "The Arab League (click here)." Today that League needs to have their own region military commitment that seeks peace with Israel and Iran.

    The very USA Congress today is now posturing to take the near east to court from an attack KNOWN to come out of Afghanistan and al Qaeda. This entire old regime of the USA, AKA The Republican Party, is outrageous in not only their immorality in the world, but, also the political pressure that forces the other major party, the Democratic National Committee, to depart their own values in order to win elections as a counter balance to the right wing extremists. That is most noted in the current candidate for the Democratic Party in Hillary Clinton. She voted for the Iraq War and has a very hawkish view of American military power. Such views place her above the fray of fear wield by the RNC to push Americans into the voting booths hoping to keep their lives. The hideousness of this is the reality of the gun preference of the RNC while Americans are fearing for their lives in their own churches, homes and places were groups of people are found. It is insane where the RNC is today. It serves no one but themselves and Wall Street cronies, primarily private family industries with global reach.

    We are watching the remains of the RNC turn into the Tea Party and rightfully so. The Tea Party are all the people that voted in Republican primaries and national elections that supported the RNC. These are the poor and working poor that voted because of deep abiding religious beliefs. They have a rightful place in the USA's freedom and democracy, but, their leadership is leaning far more right and is a danger to not just the USA, but, our allies. Look at what is being contemplated for Saudi Arabia (click here). Does anyone this bill will end at the door of Saudi Arabia. It won't. It has far reaching precedent globally. It is needless to say these movements within the USA's Congress is just plain dangerous to us all. I am more than pleased the political parties in power are having a new reality handed to them.

    I look forward to the elections in the USA in 2016. The people may actually have a feeling of control in being able to lead their future into security both with domestic policy and international relationships.

    That said the relationship with Great Britain, evidenced by the lengthy laundry list of allied interest noted in the speech by the Prime Minster, is extensive.

    The Prime Minister isn't exactly the average citizen either, is he? The facts found in the Panama Papers (click here) speak to that. It is that illegitimate dedication to wealth to this extent, rather than paying taxes to the very sovereign he leads, that calls up dedication to issues, especially that of the British working class and the British poor.

    Let's face it, the condition of children in the USA and Great Britain isn't at the top of the global charts, however, their nuclear and military infrastructure is without question far larger fiscally than they need to be. The real irony is that children lack their infrastructure and spending to completely wasteful military infrastructure such as the F35 Joint Strike Fighter. Unfortunately, the lobby exists for the military, but, not for children. The only strong advocate for children from her early days of professional life has been Hillary Clinton. But, with whatever hope she brings to the presidency, her loyalty to military aggression raises the issue of unresolved social programs such as the legal status of children and the country's dedication to excellent nutrition, mental health, education and exercise.

    One the laundry list is the intention of Great Britain to leave the European Union. I think that is occurring because the British know exactly their fiscal peril in the "Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership" (click here) currently facing the European Union. I congratulate them to being as strong as they need to be to rid themselves of draconian Wall Street GOVERNMENT documents. It is very sad the British has to go to this extent in order to protect their economic interests as Europeans on the continent don't have the same strength and power within their governments.

    There is no doubt President Obama was a strong partner with Great Britain. That is important. What needs balance by both countries is their desire for oversized military that is out of fiscal balance with their domestic needs. The countries are suppose to have a Defense Department, not ones that are mercenary for Wall Street.

    This is probably one of the last trips to Great Britain by President Obama. In that it is completely understandable many issues were addressed. The British Prime Minister should know President Obama will always do what is necessary within his power, but, on profound joint policy nothing will be accomplished by the USA legislature UNLESS the Brits come to lobby and demand better balance with all the needs of the British and American citizens.

    I would suggest a strong media presence to visiting British diplomats no matter what it takes, including insults of RNC members if they are standing in opposition to vital American interests with Great Britain. In this election the truth has to be stated in overwhelming realty because the people are sincerely undereducated to their votes. Americans are distracted and it would be nice if it were to mutual interests such as Manchester United, but, the commercial lives of Americans are the focus and it is very unfortunate. The USA stand as an example of what happens to a society owned by a single political dialogue and it's Plutocratic priorities.

    No truer words ever entitled a book.

    First (click here) published in 1992, Earth In The Balance helped place the environment on the national agenda; now, as environmental issues move front-and-center in the public consciousness, the time is right to reflect deeply on the fate of our planet and commit ourselves to its future.

    Earth Day started the awareness of the climate crisis gently. It was begun by John McConnell in 1970 as a citizen's movement to grow a welcome message of Earth's changing climate. The message threatened no one, but, only to reach others who did not have the knowledge about greenhouse gases and the greenhouse effect. It threatened no one until it reached the office of Wall Street and it entered into political debate of petroleum profits. A simple man with a simple and important message through his First Amendment right to freedom of speech. It is the way the democracy of the United States of America is suppose to work; uncorrupted, based in truth and reason inspired to move to protect the lives of it's people. The First Amendment was trampled and sold to political ambitions. It was not a crisis when John McConnell began a citizen's awareness. The USA is failing it's people. What happened to the First Amendment?
