No Doubt that Tourism has been and will be impacted by OUR polluted 'public' water system AND ----has opened the door for many outsiders to once again revive the negative stereotype images of West Virginia and its citizens. It has long been known in the political community that the root of ALL of West Virginia's problems are centered around the greed/corruptness of the elected officials, judges, law enforcement, in charge of the state and counties. OUR CURRENT 'POLLUTED' PUBLIC WATER SYSTEM ' is a huge reflection of a state wherein the elected officials not only 'waive' their corruption in the face of its citizens BUT wear it proudly ---- IN FACT it is a known fact that in order to even obtain employment with the State of West Virginia and/or its counties the FIRST CRITERIA is 'who' you know . Forget about any worries if you don't have the education/training for the job, none of that matters. What counts is 'whether' you will be a 'good' team player, undermine common sense, undermine the laws, support the corrupt officials in place, support the 'ruling' dictator and keep the corruption going. West Virginia is nothing more than a 'haven' for white supremist groups, organized crime, criminals defining the 'constitutional climate' , controlling the courts/ law enforcement and the state agencies.

You sound like someone who also beloved cameras watch you while you sleep. Get to calm down and enjoy life, it doesn't last long!
