Black Market Drugs

Test THC cartridges and discovered a horrifying fact: all 18 cartridges contained myclobutanil which can transform into hydrogen cyanide when burned.

In addition, 13 of the cartridges tested by CannaSafe contained the solvent Vitamin E, which can trigger severe lung damage when it is inhaled.

Family Health Insurance

Median Household Income in Mississippi by Age of Householder
Mississippi
Householder under 25 years $23,579
Householder 25 to 44 years $46,237
Householder 45 to 64 years $48,953
Householder 65 years and over $32,611

This year the cost of family health insurance in the U.S. is $20,000. Now tell me how any health insurance is helping the quality of life? Mississippi is not paying a wage to enable a person to have a family. In fact, world wide people are having children they can not afford. Resources are finite and the more people demanding resources results in more poverty.

Poorly Educated City Leaders

The city of Portland is stuck paying $350 million more than it had planned for a new water filtration plant — all because the bureau that presented the project plan forgot to include any pipes to carry the water into and out of the system.

This sounds like Tupelo leaders. Always voting to spend money but finding out the bids are way short of what they expected the finished product to be. It seems the only expertise the people on the ballot have is being elected.

Portland’s Water Bureau presented the city council with a plan in 2017 for a water treatment plant that, they said, would cost $500 million. The Portland City Council approved the project.The plant would actually cost more than they had stated. A lot more — 70 percent more, in fact. The actual cost, not including any delays or setbacks or other items that seem to invariably increase the cost of government projects, the plant would now cost $850 million. Out of the additional $350, $200 million would be to include the pipes.Since city governments are funded by taxpayer dollars, this extra charge would lead to an increase in water and sewer bills for Portland’s residents, causing them to rise an additional $131 per year.

If you want great Government get educated and do write in votes for the best people rather than following the propaganda.

The First Amendment

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prevents the government from making laws which respect an establishment of religion, prohibit the free exercise of religion, or abridge the freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble, or the right to petition the government for redress of grievances.

Some take oaths working for the Government to keep secrets. The citizen has a right to say even criticize the government or and anything else without being punished by the Government. However that one citizen can bring suite to another citizen for slander or breach of contract due to making public words or information that harms the other. Civil courts determine the harm and value of that harm.

In today’s world of the mass communication the awareness is bombarded with many lies and distorted information. Depending on the value of harm is it worth the court battle to use the process to punish the aggressor?

Electric Cars Add to Climate Change

Climate change: Electrical industry’s ‘dirty secret’ boosts warming.Sulphur hexafluoride, or SF6, is widely used in the electrical industry to prevent short circuits and accidents But leaks of the little-known gas were the equivalent of putting an extra 1.3 million cars on the road.It is widely used across the industry, from large power stations to wind turbines to electrical sub-stations in towns and cities. It prevents electrical accidents and fires. Solar and wind are not waste free. What to do with the old equipment such as turbine blades? However, the significant downside to using the gas is that it has the highest global warming potential of any known substance. It is 23,500 times more warming than carbon dioxide (CO2).A study from the University of Cardiff found that across all transmission and distribution networks, the amount used was increasing by 30-40 tonnes per year.This rise was also reflected across Europe with total emissions from the 28 member states in 2017 equivalent to 6.73 million tonnes of CO2. That’s the same as the emissions from 1.3 million extra cars on the road for a year.

Then we have air travel which is increasing the amount of CO2 each year. Fact is there is no use of energy that is clean and as populations increase so does energy use. The solution is not in the marketing of making more “stuff” but decreasing consumers.

Create a New Life

THE SUICIDE RATE IN THE U.S. HAS HIT THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN 50 YEARS, AND THERE IS CONCERN THAT IT WILL GO MUCH HIGHER
Life is an absolutely incredible gift, and don’t let anyone ever convince you that you should end it.

More laws and control over individuals does not give individuals the freedom to live their own values. Marketing has created a culture where people are worried about what other people think. Fact is you have control of how you feel not the minds of other people or groups.

Vaping, Drugs, Physical Risks, Poor Health Habits

As long as government is providing benefits for heath insurance, disability, medicare, medicare, welfare, food stamps, housing, phones, etc. there is very little incentive to care about your health or the future. Self inflicted problems and risks people take should not be supported by the taxpayer.

We Asked Prosecutors if Health Insurance Companies Care About Fraud. They Laughed at Us.
To protect their networks and bottom lines, health insurers don’t aggressively pursue widespread fraud, making it easy for scammers. Then they pass the costs off to you.

Why is it Mississippi has a very low average household income?

The median U.S. household income remained essentially flat at $63,179 in 2018 after three straight years of growth, according to Census Bureau figures that offer a broad look at Americans’ financial well-being.

Could it be that the leaders are taking advantage of the poorly educated public and using them as slaves? Recruiting low pay jobs? Not promoting research and inventing new products to sell world wide? The present MS average job is obsolete and will be replaced by machines.

The Tribal Wisdom of the Dakota Indians

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from one generation to the next, says that when you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.
But in modern business, because heavy investment factors are taken into consideration, other strategies are often tried with dead horses, including the following:

1. Buying a stronger whip.
2. Changing riders.
3. Threatening the horse with termination.
4. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
5. Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses.
6. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.
7. Reclassifying the dead horse as “living-impaired”. .
8. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse. .
9. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.
10. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the dead horse’s performance.
11. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse’s performance.
12. Declaring that the dead horse carries lower overhead and therefore contributes more to the bottom line than some other horses.
13. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.
14. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.

Quality Public Service

ISO 9000 is a set of international standards on quality management and quality assurance developed to help companies effectively document the quality system elements to be implemented to maintain an efficient quality system. Sadly to say our local government does not care about quality service for what the taxpayer is paying for. Today the test of the emergency warning system was not exactly at 12 noon that most cities can set their watches at. Then we have the water meter readers that do not have the will to seat the meter covers down properly. The maintenance department has trucks that leak oil on the street and the wrong street sweeping equipment for collecting leaves. They rarely sweep the streets in my area. The whole school and city budget does not include money for preventive maintenance or replacing things at their life expectancy.

Lack of thought and wisdom in most City Council decisions cost the tax payer much more later. They do things not for the best interest of the majority of the taxpayers but rather for personal connections.
