U.S. EPA head breaks promise to visit Clyde

U.S. EPA administrator Lisa Jackson has made it official: She’s not coming to Clyde to visit the families affected by the Clyde Cancer Cluster, breaking a promise she made in 2011.
Tom Jackson
Feb 2, 2013

 

In addition, EPA officials have asked the families to quit sending questions to the EPA’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., and send them instead to a regional office in Chicago.

Jackson wrote a letter in October 2011 to Warren and Wendy Brown — parents of Alexa Brown, 11, who died of cancer — saying she would visit Clyde to meet with the cancer cluster families after the EPA concluded its investigation in the matter.

In an October 2011 press release, Jackson said she would come to Clyde “next year.”

As 2012 came and went, Jackson never showed up.

She announced recently she’s stepping down as the EPA’s administrator early this year. A replacement hasn’t been named.

Pete

Another liar in the Obie Administration? I for one am shocked!

John Harville

asshats! She promised to come "when the EPA completed its investigation". In case you missed it, the EPA is still here at the request of the Parents and their attorneys. The EPA said it will return in the spring to do more at Whirlpool Park.
And within the last two weeks the Parents' attorneys requested further EPA tests in the city sludge pits.
Plus the EPA just stated no further action is needed at the former Clyde Dump or Formulated Paint Products.
The woman did NOT break a promise - she just won't be in the position because the attorneys are trying to find some way to make money out of this,

Pete

She lied. Flat out. Said she would come in 2012 and did not.
Go ahead and try to cover for your Messiah's joke of an administration. The people of this country know better.

John Harville

Really Pete? Try to look past your distrust of the Black man in the Whitehouse and look at the law.
Families called in /hired a high-profile law firm as their Erin Brockovitch. The law firm - and Bowlus in Fremont representing Abdoo Construction companies - called in the EPA just after a 'final report' had been issued. Now, anything said by anyone can be used in trials.
Quite honestly, families who can't cope with the fact their grandchildren died of an horrible cancer, knowingly or unknowingly, 'disinvited' the EPA director when they invited the attorneys. Investigate the lawfirm before you spew again. Look past your political dislike and try a new exercse - looking at the facts, francis.

Pete

So the Race Card has been played. Always the last trick in a losing argument.

So she couldn't visit because of lawyers. P!$$ poor excuse. When has a lawyer ever stopped a politician from a PR visit?

goofus

Exactly Pete, I thought all politicians are lawyers!!!

John Harville

Nope. NO race card. Truth.
Not an excuse.
She doesn't want to make it political nor deny the parents/others their opportunity to gain closure.
She's not a politician. She is not an elected official.,
But she DOES understand that if she appears now, she worsens the situation.

MiddleRight

She is not black John, just a liar.

John Harville

Middle... read before you comment. He said "your Messiah...", a direct reference to the President - who IS Black.

Pterocarya frax...

Actually she is African American.

goofus

asshats, moderators trying to see if I can trigger the obscenity filter like the above's post first word. The second post by John Harville

nosey rosey

Good for her. This whole witch hunt needs to end.

mikel

Agreed.

grandmasgirl

It doesn't matter why she isn't coming. The thing is, she promised she would. This is a trust broken. She should have just said "I will try". I really don't believe that they will ever find out why there is so much cancer in this area. It is not just children, but people of all ages.

John Harville

She would lhave come last year - but then some of the parents called in attorneys which meant she couldn't come since it now may end up in the courts.
Many of us are cancer victims in Clyde - we just aren't children. The children had a cancer common in 40-year-old men. Several 40-something men also have died in Clyde in the last 15 years. There also has been an unusually high incident of breast and lymphoma cancers.

goofus

She's really been busy covering her tracks on the E-mail fraud and everything.

John Harville

Goofass, check the legalities. And beware - YOU could be called to testify since you speak so openly about the cluster.

goofus

I speak about cluster? It's called reading comprehension, I'm against the EPA and the administration. Why does the whole south shore of lake erie have so much kidney disease prevalent?

John Harville

Ah. You just brought up another issue that could bring you into court. Congrats. You're against Richard Nixon's EPA? Are you against the ENTIRE Administration on 'principal'? Or do you pick and choose? Or would you be against the Administration no matter what?

grandmasgirl

I understand that Clyde has many cancer cases, but the whole area has more than their share. If we did a study on percentages, it probably would be about the same in the four county area. Maybe not as many child cases, but overall.

cam

People in Clyde need to look into the waterlines they had for years.

John Harville

And the dump that operated 30 years before EPA regulation that eventually was an EPA Superfund site. It closed right after the Independence Day flood that closed the water plant, pushed picnic tables two blocks, overflowed the dump and spread the water from three creeks across much of the city depositing who knows what chemicals.

Armymom7

The election is over, who in Washington cares about the Midwest until Hillary declares?

John Harville

The parents brought in attorneys... now the Administration can't be apresence here.

Maggdi

The bill for her visit would be better spent doing tests. The families effected deserve at least that if these expenses are going to be incurred for investigations.

John Harville

She said she'd come when the investigation is complete...the EPA is returning in the Spring.... capiche?

wiredmama222

John...I agree with what you are saying, but you will NEVER convince the RP in here of anything differnt. You might as well give up trying to. Their minds were made up in November when their candidate lost the election.

They blame Obama for everything that comes down the pike and always will. For the next four years if the sun fails to sine, somehow it will be his fault and no one will be able to tell them differently.

In all my many years, I have never seen such a group as the constituants of the RP as this last group. They have whined so consistantly I am readly to bring then cheese and crackers to give them. LOL. Serously though, do not waste time and energy on trying to change their collective mind. Its futile.

I have seen some members of late on TV trying to tell their own party members to "lighten up", 'stop whining", "we need to drastically change", "we have become the stupid party" , "we have veen known as the dumb party"...." and it needs to change". These are key people in their party. They serously want change. I applaud their efforts.

The one young man said that "the loss of the minority votes never should have gone to Obama, but we didn't think to include them. We made a huge mistake. Just like not taking into consideration the young people and their concerns". Pertty fitting with this one, itsn't it?

So let them complain and get all snide about this. When this lady is ready and knows when to come, she will. I don't believe she will break the promise either. She is a very smart lady. She knows the law a bit more than those here and in Clyde. Fear not. You are correct. Nice work.

Pete

"When this lady is ready and knows when to come, she will. I don't believe she will break the promise either."

You do know she resigned right? That she is no longer head of the EPA?

And that not only did she lie to the people of Clyde, but she conducted EPA business through secret email accounts that she was not supposed to.

And as far as blaming the clueless individual in the White House, the Left still blames Bush. So Pot+Kettle=Black

John Harville

AGAIN...read the article which starts with a headline that accuses her of lying... she promised to come to Clyde and meet with the parents WHEN THE EPA FINISHED its investigation.
Now read the history of the Cancer Cluster and the EPA and Clyde. I know these people, some are very good friends, some are neighbors. I know their grief. I know ALL those victims who were cured or died BEFORE a family like the Browns and Kellers had the profile, money and desire to address the issue. They were not concerned about the other victims until the curse made a personal statement in their lives.
And now those same 2 or 3 families have long delayed the chance to get answers and the visit from ANY director of the EPA.

mikel

wired - your rant is great! to this day the democraps continue to blame bush for all of the ills in america. yet when somethng is said about prezo we are all wrong.

maybe the fact that prezo and the democraps find nothing wrong with the gov't taking in $200 billion per month in revenue while spending $360 billion a month but many of us do. apparently, prezo and his dem buddies failed their bookkeeping classes! maybe the fact that entitlements have literally doubled from 31% to 62% in the last 50 years and prezo and his democrap buddies find nothing wrong with that but many of us do. this country can not sustain the financial course we are on but nobody on the left cares!

as far as this article goes, follow the money!

John Harville

Ah Mikel... I can always count on you here or on WTOL to divert the discussion completely away from the topic so you can attack President Obama.
1. Revenue vs Expenditures: Congress. Read the Constitution you claim to revere and unerstand.
2. 'Entitlements' have doubled... avoid specifics as always. Ignore the aging population (Baby Boomers became eligible for the SS insurance 'entitlement' they paid for 50 years) in 2008; same with Medicare which we began paying at age 15.
The 'cost' of other entitlements has to be computed differently. Ever ask why food stamps are part of the Farm Subsidy bill? 50 years (are you seeing a pattern?)ago government bought overproduction grains, milk, meat, etc. and turned it into commodities for welfare recipients. The cost was money paid to farmers. Now the cost is - money.
3. We can't sustaing an excessive military budget, either - but we always have. We're still involved in a 62-year 'war' in North Korea. But hey, those costs escalated under Republicans so they're okay.
STAY FOCUSED Asshat! This story is about DEAD CHILDREN. I realize you don't consider DEAD CHILDREN an important issue (as in Newtown), but to us THIS is a homegrown issue. Do not use our DEAD CHILDREN as one more avenue for spewing your hatred.

mikel

johnny boy, it was your compadre wired who brought prezo into this not i.

re:
#1. if you don't have it you shouldn't be spending it. do you understand? makes me wonder how many times you may have filed for ba......cy because you apparently have no problem spending more than what you make.
#2. medicare, medicaid and ss make up 44% of entitlement spending. prezo has done nothing to make these people independant but rather makes the masses slaves to his "taking care of them".
#3. just like all liberals you like to blame this on military spending. fifty years ago military spending was approximately 50% of the u.s. budget. today, military spending accounts for just 19% of the u.s. budget. so stop whining about it.

it is tragic as i have said before. again, as i have stated before, there are many issues that have become prominent today in the health world. lead paint, leaded gasoline, asbestos, poor waste facilities etc. one must remember that in "their" day these were found to safe and effective to use. today's technology has debunked that. right, wrong or indifferent those are the facts. to sit here today and point fingers for blame instead of a solution is absolutely crazy.

having a family member that died way to young has made me more compassionate for those families. however, i am a realist.

John Harville

You turned the discussion into one of entitlements, etc. and moved the focus from the EPA non-visit.
1. A personal attack hmmm? Never filed bankruptcy, never spent beyond my means. Never had more than one credit card at a time. Of course we KNOW you've never had credit cards because that would be spending what you don't have.
2. How would you suggest making 'these people' independent from the insurance they paid for? Most people on Medicaid actually are taxpayers but many only work 20-30 hours per week (since the Bush/GOP 12 years.) Medicare and SS PAID FOR THE BENEFIT! Why don't right-wingers get that?
3. Why is 1962 ("50 years ago")such a watershed date with you? 12 years in to Korean War. Two years into the JFK term with Ike's superhighways under construction. Do you go back there as a round number or just because... Were you around then?
Your early loss is unfortunate on two levels - the loss, and the idea that the loss is what makes you a bit more compassionate.

mikel

Just using a 50yr mark. Cash is king. Loans, yes. However, not 50+ times in the above income limit. Also, my assets exceed my debts. Behind a lady at the grocery store "gettin ready for the game". Using her Ohio directions card for pizzas, chips, cookies', onion rings, pop. Good use for that!

Btw, you think the 15 year old in my nephews class that just had a baby will get use of Medicaid? The cycle continues.

mikel

I do apologize for getting so far off topic.

The Big Dog's back

mikel, back then we relied solely on the manufacturer's word that things were "safe".

mikel

Is there proof on negligence?

The Big Dog's back

Is there proof? Sure!. Will it ever be released? I doubt it.

mikel

How can there be proof if they don't know what is causing the problem?

wiredmama222

mikel.....never ONCE did I mention Bush. I did not defend Obama either, other than to mention that the Republicans whine andd whine about losing in November and you have...all of you. Its getting old fast. Its OVER, guys. Find another rant, will ya!

As for this lady not coming because she resigned. So she broke her promise. OK, what do you want anyone to do? Go hunt her down and shoot her? There is little anyone can do about it. She's gone. No one really knows why she resigned. Pherhaps she is ill. You can all conjecture until snow ice falls on the Equator, but no one knows for sure. Is it nice of her...no. Did she do wrong....yes. But no one can do a darn thing about it. Perhaps, if someone was using a PART of their brain in Clyde, they could CALL the EPA and find out what happened to any testing that was done if they want to know anyting. Other than that, this is over and done. Get past it.

bored reader

Wiredmama222 says

That's nothing like democrats and obammer blaming Bush for everything four years into obammies administration is it? Crazy people.

wiredmama222

bored reader....I didn't mention Bush at all. But it is true. You republicans have been bashing Obama since he won and even before. And yes, the democrats bashed Bush just as much. That's politics. Get over yourselves. Stop whining. The republicans lost this time. We will probably lose the next time. So what. Get over it. But with this election I have NEVER heard such whining in my entire life. It goes on and on and on like a broken record. Enough already. Its February and you RP's are still at it. Get over it. You lost, We won. It's time to work together. OK?

crazyaide

You will check on the Barnes Nursery Compost site, but this is not a priority? Wow!!!

goofus

I told you it's about covering her butt with the phony e-mail stuff.

goofus
There you go again

Who's this John Harville guy who acts like he knows everything?!?!

Pete

He showed up when the repeal of SB5 was on the ballot to praise the fleecing of Ohio taxpayers by public employee unions.

He comes back every now and then to praise his Messiah, Barry The Useless.

The Big Dog's back

Really jealous of President Obama huh?

Pete

Not in the least. I work for a living and am proud of it. Why would I want to be a drain on society like Obie has his whole life?

John Harville

No you don't. Oh, you may show up at a job site....

Pete

How long have you been a drain on society?
I earn my check. Do you?

John Harville

Never.
I've never backed up to take a paycheck or a pay envelope - in 50+ years.
And since we want to get personal... I volunteered for Vietnam. What is YOUR service record?
Drain on society...

goofus

Oh good, another Kurt!!!!!

Pete

Too young for Vietnam. And no I didn't join the military. Went straight to work out of HS.

Never been a drain on society. But if it floats your boat to think I am, that is your choice.

John Harville

'too young for Vietnam'... so you missed the 'involuntary conscription' and could go 'straight to work' after high school without wondering when the 'Greetings' letter would arrive. Thus you've never really paid a debt to society while enjoying all the benefits. Thousands of men and women 'too young for Vietnam' still volunteer for military service. Too bad.

John Harville

@ Big Dog. Pete's only jealousy apparentlyh is that he has nothing to show for his space-taking existence.

Pete

I'm happy with my life. Why wouldn't I be. But you can keep trying that line if it makes you happy.

The Big Dog's back

Then why are you so negative about everything?

Pete

Moderators have removed this comment because it contained Personal attacks (including: name calling, presumption of guilt or guilt by association, insensitivity, or picking fights).

A retired school teacher who lives near the clyde area, he is annoying isn't he!!! John Harville that is.

John Harville

OMG Goofass. Now you're into breaking the posting rules by thinking you can identify me? Never taught school in Clyde. Where DO you get this stuff?
No need to worry, though. Just because you're breaking several rules (you just put retired teachers 'near the Clyde area' in the crosshairs) doesn't mean Sarah will remove your posts or ban you (that's in the rules too).
But thanks, you just took the target off my back.

goofus

No problem, and I hope you weren't an english teacher because reading comprehension certainly isn't one of your strong suits. Reread my post, did I mention WHERE you taught!!! Geez, such a maroon.

John Harville

Liar. Re-read your own post. I'm still trying to discover from where I allegedly retired 'near Clyde'.

goofus

That's still NOT what I said.
MODERATOR why does my copying a word John Harville said in his second post triggered the profanity filter and his use of the word is allowed!!! Covering for the libs I see

John Harville

Goofus: "a retired schoolteacher who lives near the Clyde area".

John: "you just put a lot of retired teachers near the Clyde area in the crosshairs". Obviously, though the MODERATOR doesn't mind if the Sandusky Register allows such things.

John Harville

Goofus: ...and I'm still trying to figure out from where I retired AS A TEACHER?
Retired teachers living near the Clyde area have now been massed into a 'target' group.

John Harville

Not everything... just a lot more than most of the voices on here. And, pay close attention, no one ever responds to the facts I post. Instead, they jump on other issues and opportunities to attack the President (by any foul nickname they can imagine), Democrats, the great unwashed 'left' and most anyone else they (you?) dislike.
Not gonna yield to your effort to find my identity: just know I've lived longer than most folks on here. I've been in the workforce more than half a century, paying my 'entitlement' insurance all that time - including Medicare insurance since its inception. I've survived 13 presidents, 9 'wars' and 'police actions' - volunteered for Viet Nam (and protested against it), Reagan's 18% car loans and 14% mortgages,gone from a phone on the wall to a phone/computer in my pocket, remember gas at 26.9, ... I could go on but will just leave you with the knowledge I've experienced more than most anyone who tries to mold opinion here.
And no... I came on AFTER SB5.

goofus

Facts, funny that you don't furnish any sources of your ramblings. If you say it it must be true, a good leftist!!!!

John Harville

What sources would you like?

8ballinthesidepocket

Why would she be different from the lying A-Hole she works for? Don't blame I didn't vote for him, you did!!!

arnmcrmn

Nahhhhh......Someone under this administration lied? Say it isn't so. You mean like Obama never had been skeet shooting, but now he skeet shoots very often?

John Harville

He talked about his skeet shooting while in the Senate... it's just that he never shot anybody in the face.

looking around

LOL....where is the like button! HA HA HA

John Harville

WMDs in Iraq.
No one is going to war over the Clyde Cancer Cluster.

I don't believe in shooting skeets. They don't have any meat on them to take home and eat..:)

Neither do dead school children....

pavedparadise

Is anyone really surprised at EPA's decision not to show?

John Harville

Be specific in your comments... You mean the outgoing director of the EPA.
EPA has been to Clyde ad nauseum and still never really accomplished anything except publishing at least five reports saying 'nothing is found' and then being called back by powerful attorneys to 'find' something they already 'found'.

goofus

In Barry's own words, he doesn't care about the " bitter clingers" until it's election time!!

Do you feel left out?

It’s the hypocrisy of the Federal EPA; if they cant fine someone, make money, or shut something down they are not interested. Not called the Economy Pounding Agency for nothing.

The outbreak of children with cancer was noted when, 1996? Circa 2009 the state EPA and health department identified potential sites to investigate. In 2012 the Federal EPA actually made it here to take samples. Is that correct? If so I would say that is highly inefficient; but the EPA was probably busy with more important projects like classifying spilled milk as hazardous, and studying animal flatulence impact on global warming.

Jackson is such a good little troll, while visiting Moen Corporation in 2011 the media asked her about the cancer cluster, she said she had no clue. That’s funny because everyone from comrade Brown to 19 News had been sending her letters. Should have sent them to one of her alias e-mail accounts.

John Harville

gila... where DO you get your information? Children developed cancer in the 90s, yes. But the Sandusky County Health Department refused to take notice. In 2009 the Browns were confronted with Alexa's illness and started using his position to begin pushing. Since he is a county employee, the county board of health stepped in. Four children already had died... bu the number of confirmed 'child' cases were not enough to identify a 'cluster' and have the County Health Dept. request the EPA investigate. In 2011 the EPA was investigating. Indeed NO ONE had 'a clue' since the investigation had just begun. There was no site identification until 2011.
But, facts really aren't of any interest to you are they?
Just so you know, there was an inordinately high level of breast cancer and lymphomas as early as 1992.

goofus

I guess the EPA is too busy closing down the coal industry and fracking to be bothered by cancer deaths.

John Harville

How inconvenient for all those miners killed in explosions.
...and those 20 or so eastern Ohio earthquakes in a no-fault zone.

goofus

Not inconvenient for me.
Cold hard fact, as soon as your trip down the birth canal last, you are on your way out, some get there sooner than others.

gilamonster

My timeline was compiled by several sources. Point was it sure as heck took the FED EPA a long time to jump; efficiency at its best. As late as June 2011, she (Jackson) was asked by 19 Action news (on TV) about Clyde Ohio, she didn’t even have a clue. Sherrod BrowN said he found that amazing because Clyde was officially named a cluster in 2006. Sherrod Brown: "According to information from the EPA website, the CDC and other federal agencies are only called in to further assist with cancer cluster investiations when there is a 'special situation,'" the letter read. "With at least 37 children diagnosed with cancer, four children dead, and an entire community searching for answers, I would ask the EPA and CDC to consider the Clyde cancer cluster a 'special situation.” So I would say that 37 or more kids with cancer in a 12 mile radius was not of concern; the Federal EPA has more pessing issues like taxing the rainwater running off the roof of your house. Completely useless.

Rod Farva

A bureaucrat lying!? Holy sh** someone call cnn!

From Breitbart:

President Barack Obama and, for that matter, most of America seem woefully ignorant about a scandal unfolding at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. As hard as it is to believe, outgoing Administrator Lisa Jackson actually appears to have had agency personnel create a fictitious employee by the name of “Richard Windsor” so that Jackson could appropriate the Windsor’s email address for her own purposes.

We’re not talking about some alias to be used for personal correspondence but a totally false identity in whose name official business was allegedly conducted created specifically to avoid federal record-keeping and disclosure requirements. And none of this would ever have been uncovered were it not for the courage of a still anonymous whistleblower and the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Christopher Horner, an attorney with the legal smarts and experience needed to unravel it all.

Earlier this week, thanks to Horner’s good work, the EPA was supposed to produce the first installment of some 12,000 secret, previously undisclosed emails. Not because it wanted to but because a federal court order required it to.

Under the order, the EPA was to provide the first installment of 3,000 e-mails with three additional installments of 3,000 e-mails to follow. Rather than provide the required emails, however, EPA’s cover letter accompanying its production of emails said it “produced more than 2,100 emails received or sent” by Jackson on an official alias e-mail account.

All fine, well and good – except that not one of those emails was from “Richard Windsor’s” account. Not one. Yet it is certain the account exists because Horner found three Windsor emails using other means. Instead the EPA provided such absurdly silly and unresponsive e-mails as the daily news briefs published by the Washington Post, and EPA national news clippings, a pathetic attempt to avoid a contempt citation that came only after a week’s worth of unsuccessful attempts to push the official response date down the road.

A pattern exists: the EPA creates a fake e-mail account for its administrator to avoid scrutiny; it doesn’t produce any of the fake e-mails even though they are required by law to do so; when specifically required by court order, the EPA seeks endless delays; and, when the delaying tactics prove fruitless, EPA fails to provide either the number or the type of e-mails required.

Because 100 children a year need medical attention for exposure to mouse and rat poison, it looks like the EPA will eliminate an entire product.

From the NY Times:

The federal Environmental Protection Agency is moving to ban the sale of a line of mouse and rat poisons made by Reckitt Benckiser, saying that the manufacturer has refused to adopt the agency’s safety standards for rodenticides.

After the agency’s “notice of intent” is published in the Federal Register, the company will have 30 days to appeal to an E.P.A. administrative law judge. If no hearing is requested, a national ban on sales of 12 d-Con bait products to consumers will become final, the agency said.

The E.P.A.’s regulatory effort is intended mainly to prevent children from suffering from accidental exposure to the bait. Some 10,000 children a year are accidentally exposed to mouse and rat baits, and 1 percent of those need medical attention, an agency spokesman said, citing data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

EPA Director Admits Spying on Farmers w/ Planes

02/06/13

From Gateway Pundit:

Midwest farmers were outraged to hear that Lisa Jackson and the EPA were spying on ranches in surveillance planes. Rep. Tom Latham sent a letter to the EPA demanding answers on this controversial practice. In his letter Lathan argued,

“No federal agency has the right to treat the American farmer like the Taliban.”

The Hill:

Departing Departing Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson said she wished she had communicated better during her tenure with rural regions that felt victimized by the agency’s pollution rules.

“If I were starting again, I would from day one make a much stronger effort to do personal outreach in rural America,” Jackson said in a wide-ranging interview with Reuters published Monday.

Clashes with rural GOP lawmakers characterized much of Jackson’s time in Obama administration, but Jackson has lamented what she says are inaccurate claims about the scope of EPA’s agenda.

Aaaah. The Reagan Coalition. The EPA is a federal agency and as such is allowed to inspect anywhere in the US. If you're not doing anything illegal.... I've done a lot of aerial photography. The skies are free. If I wanna take photos of your farm or your house or your neighborhood, so what? Hae you looked at a google map recently?

goofus

I know your reading comprehension deprived but there are two other news sources listed, The Hill and Reuters!!!!

goofus

Wondering why that if it doesn;t come from Fire Dog Lake, Slate Huff-PO or any other left wing mainstream media website, it ceases to be news and unreliable. Certainly right wing news site are covered under the same libel laws that serves the rest of the media. So far CBS news and Dan Rather are the only ones forging documents. How many retractions did CNN and MsNBC and the rest of the lamestream media publish on the George Zimmerman case.

goofus

Wondering why states are fighting Obama's Justice Department on the use of domestic drones. Google is an infringement on one's right to privacy. A government agency taking pictures of your home is NEVER going to end well!!!!

John Harville

Why is everything except stuff you like an infringement of rights. I guess the skies aren't open to anyone who can fly?
