For anyone who may have been exposed to the toxins, it might be helpful to know that I lived in hydrogen sulfide for a couple of years (obviously I didn't know) with the result it made me lose feeling in my feet, fall a lot, not be able to think clearly, and WHEEZE.

What's helped is Methylcobalamin to regenerate nerves that were damaged, and also Milk Thistle to cleanse the liver where toxins tend to get trapped.

I also did a heavy metal cleanse, but that was so intense that I was only able to do one week of what was supposed to be four.

I explain a lot of what I experienced and what has helped on my website:

Is this what is wrong with the millions upon millions of old geezers living in trailers in Florida?

So, Haliburton supplied these homes.

Let's go the American way and SUE! We should get a class action suit going, and include all the half-assed job performances, including these...?

Lawmakers charged with overseeing Pentagon contractors hold stock in those very firms, as do vocal critics of the war in Iraq, says the Centre for Responsive Politics (CRP).

Millions of dollars of lucrative Iraq reconstruction contracts were never finished because of excessive delays, poor performance or other factors, including failed projects that are being falsely described by the U.S. government as complete, federal investigators say.

If the news media researched who got the contracts to build them, find out what politicians and lobbiests were responsible for them getting the contracts, finding out what the specs. were and if they were followed, then prosecute anyone guilty of any wrongdoing, making it public so all would know what companies and politicians were involved.
It doesn't require rocket science to eliminate the unethical robbery of our tax money.

Does that mean I should sue the government for allowing me to buy a trailer 40 years ago to raise my child when they were actually unsafe? I second Diggs on this one. I raised my daughter in a trailer. She is alive and well and healthy as a horse. Perhaps the formaldehyde is a good thing. After all we drink it in decaf coffee! We should be charging them rent like the rest of the country is paying!

No one cared about them when Katrina hit, and no one cares about them now. They are disposable people in this country...it's a shame...if the government had cared in the first place, they'd have fixed the levees...or at least put the people up in housing that wasn't toxic...
Oh noooo

It's not our federal government's job to provide FREE housing to storm victims for YEARS after the event. Be thankful for your free ride and stfu about any lawsuit against the government.

Oh, so the chemical in the decaf coffee is what made you such a mental case. Thanks for proving it to us.

Free? Free? Who said it was free? I pay taxes for that reason, for the government to take care of its own when disaster strikes. Many of these people lost their jobs and had no where to go. What do you expect them to do? They're people, not animals. Even animals should be cared for. You're as cold as ice!

The government should at least pay for their medical bills.
