Environmentalist Gore allowed zinc mine
I
In a valley next to Al Gore Jr.'s farm near Carthage, Tenn., ground limestone left over from zinc mining spreads out like a white blanket. Some of the lime is sold to treat soil that is too acidic.
ZINC MINING DISASTERS
CARTHAGE, Tenn. While area zinc mines have a good environmental track record, according to state officials and regulatory reports, abandoned zinc mines in the tri-state area of Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri caused one of the worst environmental disasters in the country.
Four thousand mines in the area operating from the 19th century until 1970 produced 23 million tons of zinc concentrates and 4 million tons of lead concentrates.
Near the end of mining, some companies mined the pillars of rock supporting the mine roofs. This caused 500 collapses in the area.
More damage was caused when the abandoned mines filled up with water creating an acidic stew that dissolved metals, some very toxic. This water then contaminated nearby ground and surface water.
Finally, the leftover waste rock from mining covered 4,000 acres in the area.
As a result:
• Sites in the area were placed on the Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund list after toxic levels of lead, cadmium and zinc were found in the soil and groundwater.
• A University of Kansas School of Medicine study found an unusually high incidence of cancer, particularly lung cancer in two Kansas counties.
• Several families had to be moved out of their homes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a health advisory.
• Thousands were taken off well water, put on public water systems and had the soil in their yards cleaned.
Overall, the cleanup has cost millions, all borne by residents and taxpayers because the former owners had long ago gone out of business.
Tennessee environmental officials say, and Ronald Cohen, a professor at the Colorado School of Mines agrees, that the Carthage area mines are protected from acid runoff because the zinc ore is contained in limestone, which neutralizes acid.
Nobody will ever take your Crown as dumbest poster on this thread!!

Hell, you support murderers like Tony Scott in NASCAR!!

A zinc mine owned by the Jersey Minière Zinc Co.
Discovered in 1969.
In 2010, Nyrstar company is reopening the zinc mines in the Carthage, Tennessee area which includes the Elmwood, Gordonsville and Cumberland mines. The Elmwood is being operated through the Gordonsville #3 shaft and incline. The first ore from the Elmwood was hoisted in November 2010.

Has nothing to do with Al Gore, but you're such a liar, you'll lie about anything.

You conflate other zinc mines with this one, typical of a liar like you.

Between GWB's Crawford Texas home and Kennebunkport home his father owns, Bush spent 516 days of the "vacation" days.
These vacations were at his home - none of which required costly five-star hotel fees, restaurants and security every place he went.
That's kind of a big difference.
Later.
The Obama's habit of separate vacations, he with his gay lovers, and her with the rugby team have cost the taxpayers over $525 Million Yankee bucks since moving in to the WH and the projected final vacation total is in excess of $600 Mil. There used to be a term used for Blacks like them, but lets just say they are Black Trash Rich.

The FED has kept the economy afloat by printing money, devaluing the dollar, and buying bonds at around $100 Billion a month. Not going to check whatever gibberish you put out, because the economy is not healthy and the market is inflated intentionally to make it look good. I'm not complaining because I had a lot invested and made a ton, now I've gotten 60% out and in gold, silver, and platinum, with some diamonds.
You're a liar. A very stupid liar.

Nobody who believes the economy is crashing would be invested.

Nitwits like you have been calling for an economic collapse since Obama was elected. Now you lie and say you were invested and made a ton??

You're quite obviously a liar.

As I pointed out, this New Yorker magazine satirist isn't to be taken seriously.
And, yet, you post it again without the source or that it was written in the satire section by a satirist. Instead, you dig up old skeletons which you refuse to let lie in peace.
read it agains ...it is satire, but in a way are not you the same?
We love the new skeletons you post daily

Does remind of your posts which are also jokes?
G.O.P. chief Reince Priebus ripped President Obama on Sunday
for consuming three meals a day while on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.
“With international crises boiling over in Iraq, Syria, and Ukraine, it’s unconscionable that the President is having breakfast, lunch, and dinner,” he said.

Sotloff was a freelancer for Time, Foreign Policy Review and others. Foley was employed by the Global Post an online news service.

Neither of the two journalists was in the middle East on official US business and were there at their own risk. It's unlikely that the US government knew of the two prior to their capture.

Daniel Pearl who was beheaded in Pakistan in 2002 was employed by the Wall Street Journal and likewise was in Pakistan at his own risk. I don't recall Bush facing the barrage of media stupidity after the Pearl murder.

I missed a lot of the Michael Brown discussion, but it's not that hard to understand. I know how the Michael Brown shooting could have been prevented.
Suppose there was no such thing as football, and the Missouri Tigers' offensive line owned and operated the store Michael Brown looted right before he was shot. Michael Brown would have been too much of a coward to try to steal from someone who would kick the shit out of him.
If Michael Brown had been taught to be an honest man instead of a thief and coward, he would never have looted that store, and would never have beat up the cop that blew him to hell.
Two cases where worthless shitbags got blown to hell by people they attacked. Two cases where Obama joins the shitbag side..... in both cases, the worthless shitbags were black.
The last thing Michael Brown did before he was shot was loot a store. The first thing the so-called "protesters" did was loot a store. What idiot still wonders what this is all about? Obama is telling you black people are special and can loot your store, and you can't do anything about it. Eric Holder showed up to drive that point home.
And I might add that this situation is not going to get better but only worse as long as the Racist Pig remains inside the White House fanning the flames.

Is that something you don't understand or just don't want to understand?
Who says where doing nothing nitwit? Our airstrikes have allowed the Kurds to retake the Mosul dam.
And who can we thank for this stupid? Your hero George W Bush whose invasion set this whole sequence of events in motion.
