CELEBRITY IN CHIEF BARRY O GOT BUSTED BY THE A.P. FOR HIS PRETENSE THAT HIS EVERY MOVE IS NOT DRIVEN BY THE RE-ELECTION EFFORT.
IN OTHER ARREST NEWS, HIS DRUNKEN UNCLE — NOT AUNT ZEITUNI, SHE JUST LOOKS MANNISH — ONYANGO OBAMO IS DEMANDING THE DRIVING RECORD OF THE POLICE OFFICER WHO BUSTED HIM. BECAUSE THAT’S HOW THEY ROLL IN THAT TRASHY FAMILY, THEY NEVER TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS.

The provision of medical care for the people made ill by the contaminants in the installation’s drinking water must now be addressed through the legislative process. The cost of that care may eventually be high in terms of dollars. We must, nevertheless, meet our nation’s ethical and moral responsibilities.
Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Rep. Brad Miller, D-N.C., are to be commended for their sponsorship of legislation that would provide medical care through the Department of Veterans Affairs for individuals who suffer from one or more of these cancers or other health effects and who are known to have served or lived at Camp Lejeune during the years in question. Passage of their legislation and its enactment into law are the necessary next steps.
