Tell me I wear a tinfoil hat!

I get tired of hearing it. "You're nuts and our Government would never do any spraying of chemicals on Americans." Get ready to eat your words!

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Doris Spates was a baby when her father died inexplicably in 1955. She has watched four siblings die of cancer, and she survived cervical cancer.

After learning that the Army conducted secret chemical testing in her impoverished St. Louis neighborhood at the height of the Cold War, she wonders if her own government is to blame.

In the mid-1950s, and again a decade later, the Army used motorized blowers atop a low-income housing high-rise, at schools and from the backs of station wagons to send a potentially dangerous compound into the already-hazy air in predominantly black areas of St. Louis.

Local officials were told at the time that the government was testing a smoke screen that could shield St. Louis from aerial observation in case the Russians attacked.

But in 1994, the government said the tests were part of a biological weapons program and St. Louis was chosen because it bore some resemblance to Russian cities that the U.S. might attack. The material being sprayed was zinc cadmium sulfide, a fine fluorescent powder.

forgot to mention, imo,

forgot to mention, imo, chloramine stinks.

it's why tap water, imo, started tasting bad.

when it was just chlorine in the 60s and 70s, water tasted good. right from the tap.

then they switched to bonded aka chloramine, and added fluoride as well.

it's crap now.

on a side note, anything that breaks the bonds will break the chloramine down.

making coffee, or tea, or adding lime/lemon juice to tap water, does that.

so that's why I can drink those things using tap water, but I can't drink the tap water plain....

is there a group of people who post this stuff...

Sorry, I can't hear you

I've got my tinfoil hat on ;-)

You

are wearing a tin foil hat. :P

Ron Paul - Intellectual hero

If the government doesn't admit it, it's a conspiracy theory . .

. . . and therefore not true. I'm pretty sure I heard that somewhere.

The High Altitude persistent vapor (Aluminum and Barium?) trails were absent in the City where I live for the past month, but they started back up yesterday. If I had not been keen on watching the weather while I flew Hang Gliders I can see why this type of weather changes could pass the notice of busy people trying to work hard enough to stay out of debt.

Sad truth

Absolutely NOTHING is beyond those who worship power. You do not have to dig up the past to see this, it is happening at this very moment. Manufacturing justification to advance agendas with no regard to the cost in human suffering is not the exception; it is the rule. I have traveled through that scary place, and am now aware that those who "serve" us are capable of any atrocity. As long as demons keep us in fear and the ignorance born of fear, there designs will grow ever more sinister and blatant.

You wear a tinfoil hat.

Now I didn't want to say that, but you told me too.lol =P

Yes, between the US Govt infecting those in Guam with syphilis, to the US Govt releasing misquotes on Americans, to this. I would say those who say you are "nutz" or are wearing a "tinfoil hat" are willfully ignorant, and isn't ignorance bliss?

One cannot forget about the eugenics program our country used to run either.

syphilis expeiments done in the USA too

Yeah, our government has done tons of terrible things over the years and people still don't believe they are now. I told a friend a while back that they are being experimented on each time they fly and go through those scanners which have had minimal prior testing.

Here the syphilis experiments on poor black people in Alabama: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuskegee_syphilis_experiment
yeah, lets just watch them die.

Never mind the Japanese-American internment camps during WWII. Yes people died in those too due to lack of care.

I am SURE it was all for our

I am SURE it was all for our own good! Right?

Jefferson's picture

This

barely scratches the surface.

If the people who can't seem to put 2 and 2 together about the events of 9/11 just researched a little history on how our own Govt. has experimented on our citizens, military, and prisoners, they might begin to get it.

If these people can take out 10's of thousands of Japanese in a matter of seconds by dropping nukes on them, they have no trouble taking out 3000 of our own, and millions more in the middle east.

I'm sure there's more we don't know about.

The sad thing is progressives and big government types will read that article and never believe or will go into denial that a government would ever do such an atrocious thing again...

What makes you think they believe it was an atrocious act? In their minds we needed to know the effects of radiation. The only way was to dump it on people against their will so the rest of us could live.
