The Courier Journal newspaper January the ninth announced that our new(Republican) Governor Ernie Fletcher will ask for an additional 45
MILLION dollar reduction in the State of Kentucky budget. Earlier in the week he lopped 24.8 million. State educators were shocked.(article by Mark
Recently, an article in the Owensboro, Ky. Messenger - Inquirer revealed that 94% of the streams in Daviess County are polluted.
Bill Moyers in his PBS documentary had himself tested for the presence of Chemical pollution and found about six hundred chemicals. As I recall he
said that most of us would have at least 600-800 chemicals in our bodies that did not exist 100 years ago.
Busting into schools, police search for drugs, including marijuana, as if they were knights on white horses. Saving damsels in distress. Marijuana is
one of the safest therapuetically active substances known to mankind, according to a former administrative law judge of the DEA.
But according to Rush Limbaugh, speaking over my radio here in Kentucky, all environmentalists are "wacko."
We drug test school children yet it has been determined that it is unconstitutional to drug test our governments Congressmen and Senators. (From what
I read.) This at a time when our President is hyping the terrorist threats of Chemical agents. I think that for national security reasons our
government representatives more than any one should be tested to see if mind control or altering agents have been introduced into their minds.
All in all I'd say the state of this place is FUBAR.
