Don’t Drink the Water!



Here are my thoughts on the Camp Lejeune polluted water lawsuits and the constant bombardment of annoying television commercials.

Warning: Rant.

(3-minute video)

Note:  My understanding is — it was a dry cleaners that leaked the toxins into the nearby water system. So, why aren’t the dry cleaners and their insurers not 100 percent liable for this mess?  I don’t understand why the federal government (taxpayers) have to pay the freight for the mistakes of a small business.
