">So we here in the Adirondack Park live a life that ensures clean drinking water for millions of people downstream and I don't mind that. What I do mind is that we live lives that provide lower pay and higher taxes due to less private property and we do not seem to get compensated for our lifestyle by those downstream, New York City. I guess it sucks to be us.
In light of what is happening elsewhere in the world I am thankful that the area around my home will never be afflicted by either pollution and unhealthiness. I have viewed his photographs online and for those of you who live elsewhere he has the ability to bring you into my world and show you how we should live.
Why does GOD not stop the oil entering the waters of the Gulf of Mexico? Stop the bullets that kill the people he loves and loves so much that he died on a cross to save? Stop the little girls being raped by adults they trust and attend his houses of worship? Stop the hunger problems in poor countries, where is that multiplying fish and loaves thing to feed the people he loves?
I'll be right here and am anxiously awaiting your answer.
Pay attention and focus on just who is responsible. The oil companies were allowed to drill with the permits given by OUR government which is governed by our congress and our Presidents. All of the anger on YouTube,Facebook, numerous blogs are aimed at the wrong target responsible. Our government has not been governing, they have been fighting over who is in power and as long as this continues they will not have the ability to govern. We are passengers on a rudderless ship of state that has a captain who turns the ships wheel this way and that way at the behest of whoever has the most money in their hand at any moment in time and then the next day someone else shows a wad of cash and the wheel gets turned in another direction and we are now going around in circles with no plotted course. Tomorrow the wheel will get turned a little, maybe left, maybe right and the our elected representatives will go on to the next contributor and their wishes, wishes confirmed by their cash. I think the best thing we could do is elect our representatives by identifying cash as republican, democratic, or independent and the person who raises the most cash from any one group wins. The hell with voting, just PayPal your favorite as few dollars and hope he/she wins. Let's be honest! It's all about the money isn't it?
