The VA this week outlined which ships are now considered to have been exposed to Agent Orange during Viet Nam. A number of offshore “blue water” naval vessels conducted operations on the inland “brown water” rivers and delta areas of Vietnam.
FACT: Some Judges can and will commit crimes, the problem is exposing them and getting them prosecuted. When someone exposes a judge the first thing they do is attack the person who reports them. Police often side with the judge because they can’t be objective due to working under that judge. This allows unethical judges to commit crimes, abuse victims and stay immune to prosecution.
Just a few weeks ago I stood on a public platform and vigorously slammed proposals for Western military intervention in Libya.
“We condemn this massacre of civilian protesters -- including children, medical personnel and the disabled -- who seek to shake the conscience of an international community that has long ignored or excused Israel’s past dispossession of the Palestinian people and its continuing occupation of those few who were able to survive in their ancestral land. “Perhaps this tragic mass killing – played out in full view of the world’s media – will spark a new call for justice..."
Police in Canby say 22-year old David Moriarty and 21-year old Rollin Morgan attempted to burglarize a residence on NE 34th place in Canby on September 28th at 11:46 AM.

For years, a chemical degreaser called Trichlorethylene, or TCE for short, was used to clean fighter jets at the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in Southern California. The U.S. government is notorious for poor environmental practices, and this ranks among its most profound; as generation after generation of Marines were exposed to the toxic and lethal nature of TCE, a product primarily manufactured by DOW Chemicals. Various squadrons on the base used the deadly degreaser and all of the runoff was hosed away down the flightline and into the water basins. The base of the 'TCE plume' as it is called, flowed right through the Marine Wing Support Group-37 area. This is where I spent the majority of a three year enlistment as a young Marine, totally oblivious to the condition of the water and the ground that we worked on every day.
There was a time, a long time in fact, when the best possible stateside duty a Marine could hope for was Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in Orange County.
Mr. former Vice President— or Dick, if you don’t mind — I was greatly disturbed to hear that you endorsed Gina Haspel or “Bloody Gina” as she has been affectionately called, for Director of the CIA, and your call to restart the use of torture, or as you once euphemistically called torture, “enhanced interrogation techniques.” Shame on you Dick, torture is never justifiable.
