Chuck has the courage to spend other people's money on projects where companies who know and love Chuck, and express it, get the contracts.

I was listening to a hymn on youtube that was played at Diana's funeral. Very moving. That was when I first heard it. The next time I heard it was when Chuck used it as background music in his campaign ads.

Yucch! What a dirtbag move. Using a hymn from someone's televised funeral to pull in votes.

The title of the hymn is "I vow to thee my country". More BS from the Chuckster. He vowed to grab with both hands as long as he could.

The image, however, has some possibilities. Chuck being carried down the nave of Westminster Cathedral by the Welsh Guards is kinda neat. I wouldn't even want him to be dead. Just lying on his back smiling for the cameras and thinking this is great TV.

Where do we find such politicians? The Gowanus Canal must be overflowing.

This should be cleaned up but , let me understand this.. We have millions of miles of Petroleum based roadways thet let petroleum leach into all our waterways but schumer is jumping on this one isolated incident so the Grounds will be considered clean and schumer can give the green light for builders to build on what should be left alone without them worrying about getting stuck with the cleanup expense.

Drill holes, get a lotta really long straws and hold a Republican Luau at calverton. We already know They all suck and the stuff in the Calverton ground has just gotta be less toxic than that Kool-Aid Formula they all drink so they can endure another hour of Rush Limbore or Fixed News.

Chucky is a tapir. He is one of the many senators from Israel. A place that has far more representation in the US Congress than any American one state.

Meanwhile, back in Yaphank, the Suffolk County Trap and Skeet Range has been polluting the groundwater for decades and IT'S wells have tested positive for LEAD CONTAMINATION and even ARSENIC has been found in a plume that's headed for the Carmans River.

Peter Scully presides over the Central Pine Barrens Joint Planning and Policy Commission whose JOB IT IS to care for the Pine Barrens especially the CORE PRESERVATION AREA where this shooting range is located. So where's the big investigation for Suffolk County's very own toxic waste dump? Where's the Newsday article pointing out that SUFFOLK COUNTY'S OWN DOCUMENTS describe the lead at their own shooting range as HAZARDOUS WASTE?

That's OK though, as usual the "common folk" have to do the politician's jobs for them and some obviously have done this because I got all of this information from this website:
