Did you hear about 4,200 gallons of crude from a ruptured pipeline that dumped into a stream that empties into a town's water source in Illinois July 10th?

Or how about the 35,000 gallons of crude that spilled July 17th in Montana after a 20 car derailment?

OK....then you must have heard about the 1.3 MILLION GALLONS of "emulsion" from a tar sands pipeline that leaked undetected even though it had an "advanced" monitoring system, RIGHT? Oh maybe not because it was in Canada on July 17th.

But maybe this made the news.....>> in Texas, 2 barges collide and caught fire July 20th. One was carrying a million gallons of naphtha and it's unclear at this time how much was spilled.

Well if you have not heard about the above, you're not alone so WHY don't they cover this info on the NEWS??

If Americans Die in a Pandemic - Blame the GOP

Thom plus logo As a possible pandemic looms on the horizon, the United States is the only developed nation in the world without a national healthcare system. Medicare For All is not just about saving as much as half of all of our half healthcare dollars, it's also about national security.
