I will speak the Truth and speak it loudly in Watertown because this
is a place that is dominated by a considerable number of bad people.
It is the responsibility of good, strong people to confront bad people
so as to take the first step toward bringing an end to their bad
behaviors. The bad behaviors of the bad people must be brought to an
end because the total harm that has been caused by the bad people has
reached such a large quantity that more harm is absolutely
unacceptable. In the case of the harm to the Earth that has been
caused by bad people, this harm has reached such a great quantity that
it may be close to ruining the habitability of the Earth. Human
beings can not risk any further harm occurring to the Earth. We must
stop the bad people from inflicting any further significant harm upon
the Earth Mother.
The US military has a long history of polluting activities: burning
supply depots rather than transporting the supplies outside of areas
that may fall into enemy hands; using depleted uranium munitions;
bombing modern cities; aerial spraying of defoliants in the Vietnam
War; and dropping nuclear bombs on Japan during World War II. If I am
elected to Congress I will take action to bring an end to the
polluting activities of the military.
The US Army at Fort Drum appears to be acting in violation of the
Clean Air Act by allowing uncontrolled releases of
hydrochlorofluorocarbon-22 (HCFC-22) also known as R-22 an ozone
depleting chemical (ODC). R-22 destroys upper atmosphere ozone and is
also a greenhouse gas. According to information that I have received,
R-22 refrigerant is leaking from a large refrigeration unit on the
base and the Army has made no significant effort to repair the leaks.
Military personnel are directly involved in an effort to hide this
violation of the Clean Air Act (CAA) from the US Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA), which is responsible for enforcement of the
portion of the CAA that addressed ODCs. I have written to the EPA’s
Office of Air and Radiation requesting an investigation of the alleged
The Johnson Newspapers Corporation is a bad corporation. I know this
from personal experience. The Watertown Daily Times and the
Ogdensburg Journal, both of which are published by the Johnson
Newspapers Corporation are bad newspapers. Robert Gorman, managing
editor of the Watertown Daily Times has made repeated efforts to harm
me so as to decrease the effectiveness of my work as Director of
Cancer Action NY. He has done this because he is a bad person that
works for a bad corporation. I am moving forward with commencing a
federal lawsuit alleging violation of the Civil Rights Act by the
Johnson Newspapers Corporation.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and
the New York State Department of Health (DOH) have regional offices in
Watertown. There are bad people who work for these bad government
agencies. The DEC and DOH employees who have ignored the complaints
made by City of Watertown residents concerning damages to health
attributed to exposures to toxic chemicals that are present upon the
New York Air Brake Superfund site are bad people. The city residents
who have suffered much disease as a result of exposures associated
with New York Air Brake Superfund site contamination are being abused
by DEC and DOH. This abuse must not continue.
There are factory dairy farms in Jefferson County and the rest of the
21st Congressional District where dairy cattle are being abused.
Genetically engineered crops are being fed to the cattle, despite the
existence of scientific research demonstrating harm to livestock
caused by consumption of these crops. Factory dairy farmers are
injecting the cows with genetically engineered bovine growth hormone.
This practice causes much suffering of the cows due to the excessively
large quantity of milk that the cow is forced to produce. Factory
dairy farmers are keeping their cattle confined on concrete in the
stench of cow wastes. This is all the bad behaviors of bad people.
These abuses of cattle must be brought to an end. When I am elected
to Congress, I will work to establish a ban on factory farming.
