And of course “WE screwed them…

…Cold War … Uranium … Nuclear Bombs … Indegenous Tribal LandWHITE promise to deal with Indians ethically….. And of course “WE screwed them…

During the Cold War, 30 million tons of uranium ore were mined on or adjacent to the Navajo Nation, leaving more than 500 abandoned mines. EPA has entered into settlement agreements valued at $1.7 billion to reduce the highest risks to the Navajo people. Since 2008, EPA has conducted preliminary investigations at all of the mines, remediated 48 contaminated structures, provided safe drinking water to 3,013 families in partnership with the Indian Health Service, and performed cleanup or stabilization work at nine mines. In total, funds are available to begin the cleanup process at over 200 abandoned uranium mines, approximately 40% of the abandoned uranium mines on the Navajo Nation. This work is a large coordinated effort between federal agencies and the Navajo Nation to address the legacy of uranium contamination.

 

In addition to the funds addressing uranium contamination on Navajo Nation, since 1984 the EPA has provided approximately $100 million in grants to Navajo Nation Environmental Protection Agency to develop and implement environmental pro­grams.

The Republican House of Horrors Offers a Terrifying Health Care Vision…Republicans have exploited the repeal-and-replace meme with paybacks to some of their wealthiest friends.

 

By Roseanne DeMoro / AlterNet    Halloween arrived early this year featuring the Republican house of horrors seeking to fulfill their long lust to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

While there are legitimate criticisms of the ACA—notably the 28 million still uninsured and its failure to limit escalating out-of-pocket costs—the coverage gains made through the ACA, through Medicaid expansion and the crackdown on insurance abuses, are largely eviscerated by the GOP plan.

Instead we have a plan that again fetishizes a market-based health care fundamentalism that saw the U.S. plummet in a wide array of health care barometers, including infant mortality and life expectancy rates and people skipping needed care due to cost compared to the rest of the developed world, especially before the ACA.

With the hodgepodge plan hurriedly released Monday night, the House majority attempts to straddle growing public support for a government role in establishing health security for the American people and approval of the Tea Party crowd that views any fingerprints of public protection as akin to Satanism.

The bill fails on both counts, while also betraying promises made by candidate Donald Trump that "we’re going to have health care for everybody" that is "far less expensive and far better."

The principal effect of the new bill will be the loss of existing health coverage for tens of millions of people, without any restraints on health care industry pricing practices that add up to massive health insecurity for the American people.

Pretending to retain popular components of the ACA, the bill offers refundable tax credits to replace the ACA subsidies to buy private insurance, temporary continuation of the ACA Medicaid expansion, and requiring insurers to sell insurance to people with pre-existing conditions. But it’s like fools gold, each component sabotaged by the not-so-fine print.

CNN  Trump to conservative leaders: If this plan fails, I’ll blame Democrats

  In an Oval Office meeting featuring several leaders of conservative groups already lining up against the House Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, President Donald Trump revealed his plan in the event the GOP effort fails: Allow Obamcare to fail and let Democrats take the blame, sources at the gathering told CNN.

During the hour-long meeting, sources said Trump chastised the groups — including Club for Growth, the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks and the Tea Party Patriots — for calling the House GOP proposal “Obamacare lite,” warning the tea party activists, “you are helping the other side.”…

Sources at the meeting said White House aides showed some openness to one aspect of the House GOP plan that has become an irritant to tea party aligned groups: the provision that pushes back an overhaul of the expansion Obamacare Medicaid funding until 2020.

The conservative groups at the meeting asked that the date be moved up to January 1, 2018. White House aides said they were “open to discussing” it, sources said.  Read the Article

 

WHO IS ACCOUNTABLE …???

image…Perhaps a more appropriate question is … if, and/or when do “WE”… individually acknowledge and accept being accountable…???

…Included in the words used to define accountable are …  subject to the obligation to report, explain, or justify something; responsible; answerable...

…Please feel free to correct any error or deficiency you note … in my evaluation to follow…

…Though lacking any semblance of what is commonly referenced as proof, evidence, substantive data allegations are levied by our current Chief Executive Officer – – President Donald J. Trump – of the United States of America against our former President Barack Obama and “WE” – (that’s you & me) take no immediate substantive action demanding immediate full disclosure and transparency of the foundation for this round of “shoot first, ask questions later” rhetoric from “The Donald”…

…In contemplating this query I conclude our response is totally understandable inasmuch as “WE” … both individually and collectively … have chosen a path wherein being accountable is NOT on our radar screen...

…There Is application of logic here … as how can “we” hold anyone else accountable “IF “we” cannot and will not hold ourselves accountable … first, foremost, always…???

…To be accountable … one need be aware … and unfortunately though information, evidence, proof surrounds us 24/7 until our individual awareness light is lit … through a carefully crafted process “Mother Nature” has yet to reveal …though surrounded by truth we remain deaf, dumb, silent…

…This leads me to ask if President Trump is aware…???  

…Has his “awareness” light been honestly and substantively lit by “Mother Nature” or is he operating solely from an infantile … me, me, me …perspective … therefore tragically unable to grasp in the moment the implications of his words and actions…???

…Or is Trump so mentally acute, sharp, flexible, cunning and calculating in the moment…to so quickly ponder the situation to deliver that message which he assesses best serves his immediate need/goal…whether revealed to us or not…???

…It strikes me that Mr. Trump has come to power at precisely the right moment in time to provide “Mother Nature” the precise moment to lite that “awareness” light in all Americans…

…Americans do not want anyone to tell them they are lazy … but … “WE” … are and have been and “WE” know it…

…”WE” know “WE” have not been INDIVIDUALLY accountable that “WE” have chosen a path to pass the buck … to point our finger …  to blame … to shame…

…Thanks To Trump … “game over” …it’s put up or shut the hell up time …When “WE” elected Trump “WE” gave him the pool-cue and with his first stroke he put all the pool-balls in play and motion and they have not as yet come to rest … they are in a state of chaos … for how long, remains a mystery…

…”WE” hold the key and answer to resolving and solving this mystery…

… In keeping with Newton’s law that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction as it applies in this query  there is a counterpart to “awareness” that being that once “aware” you can never return to being unaware...!!!

…Yea, you can fake not being aware … but … that little voice inside you shouts … bullshit… and it’s game over…!!!

…Many Americans are completely frustrated, angry, baffled as the landscape they see today is NOT like the landscape of yesterday…

…What “WE” chose to believe fit perfect into that box life had provided — now –overflows as the pieces no longer fit into those boxes we so carefully crafted meeting the scope of our then perception which, like the pool-balls is in a state of chaos and fluctuation…

…Yea… “WE” want change… but… “WE” do not want the chaos, frustration, angst, disorder, anarchy which surround and accompany it…

…Like the old adage “WE” … cannot have our cake and eat it too… “WE” cannot have change and no chaos…

…”WE” have a golden opportunity if “WE” choose to take it … to ethically and honorably re-define … re-ignite … together equitably re-affirm the proclamation set forth in our declaration of independence … our constitution … our bill of rights …

…Like a relay race the baton has been passed to us …”WE” are accountable for getting it home…

…Are “WE” willing to do that…???
