A 76-year-old veteran was arrested in Greenville, Tennessee for asking members at a town board meeting to speak up. This apparent danger to society stated the board had assembled at a roped off table well in front of citizens in attendance to discuss a pipeline that would dump waste into a local river. According to Overholt the board was speaking softly enough the audience could not hear. After asking the board to speak up the veteran was charged with disorderly conduct. He then ask to sit down as he was tired, but instead was cuffed and placed under arrest for resisting arrest.
The company that is asking for a permit to build the pipeline was rejected once before due to community opposition. They are seeking another permit for this same line.
This little community, has its big government corruption of its own apparently. One of the board members, according to Overholt sold property to the company building the pipeline. The veteran wants the board member removed for a conflict of interest.
Another potential river pollution site waiting to happen. Good to see a veteran still willing to hold his ground. He should not fight this alone.
Border agents are claiming UN personnel are in control of the border, determining who crosses and who does not. If this is true, in an age of cell phone photos we have no evidence for the public?
If it turns out to be true, who authorized the UN (foreigners) to manage our border. I believe most Americans would consider UN personnel to be illegal immigrants as any Mexican or South American immigrant. The UN has no business on our soil outside of the UN Building. I know this would not be the first time. This is on Obama!
I introduced myself a day or so ago as a rookie to blogging and freelance writing. I normally write about politics and current events, focusing on issues the mainstream media does not report. I said then that I would like to post articles in the writer’s category occasionally to break the monotony and break to a lighter side.
As a newbie to writing I find myself becoming addicted to placing my body at this keyboard and writing something. I already posted two political articles today……didn’t feel like a third, but I had to write. I believe in the 6 to 7 weeks of experience I have now gained I see improvement. I have a question for the more seasoned writers. Is it good that I am addicted so quickly and can’t get enough? I don’t want to just put words down, I really am striving for quality and content. Is there a point where it is too much? I know once in a while you need a break, even a vacation.
I was given a Nook a few months ago as a gift. I bought books to read and found like most items you purchase, you get what you pay for. Because I like to read a lot I would buy some books rather cheaply and some I ordered that were free. I became quite frustrated with the lower valued readings, as the grammar and spelling errors were ridiculous. I got to thinking, I can write better than this. By all means I don’t believe writing is easy, it is not.
I had thought about writing before, but never really knew how to get started, and was I articulate enough? My nook readings convinced me I should give it a go. So, here I am and enjoy it more than my day job as an International Banker, which is not as glamorous as it sounds.
I could use some tips on the addiction thing, and critiquing is also encouraged, but don’t beat me up too bad. Thank you for reading.
