“It Is Time to Begin the Process of Rebuilding Our Middle-Class Economy”

David Bly, We All Do Better - 2 hours 27 min ago

A couple of weeks ago I sent Bill Moyers a copy of my book, We All Do Better and he actually read it and sent me a brief email saying he liked it very much and would like to promote it on his website. After a few back and forth emails and exchanges with my publisher today he published a blog piece on his website under the title you see above. The blog piece contains some excerpts from my book and offers it as an example of what the states might do to address the ravages of inequality. Here’s the link if you would like to read it: It is time to begin rebuilding our middle class economy

You can get a copy of my book by using this link: We All Do Better

I hope it inspires you to get involved in rebuilding our middle class economy.

– David Bly

Dept. of Health & 3M’s PFC/PFOA contamination

Carol Overland - Legalectric - 9 hours 28 min ago

(click for larger version)

3M has gotten away with poisoning the water of Minnesota, and the Dept. of Health has taken some protective and/or remedial measures, but it’s not nearly enough.  Isn’t it a wake-up call that we need a “Drinking Water Health Advisory” in this Land of 10,000 Lakes? Minnesota’s “Pollution Control Agency” has not been proactive on this, and we’ve known about 3M’s contamination for how long?  This is why we need the EPA!  The EPA is leading the charge, and Minnesota’s Department of Health (MDH), as above, has “responded” to the EPA Advisories.

80 Washington County homes will get bottled water as state reviews new pollution rules

In part:

Eighty households in Washington County will get bottled water and state-funded filtration systems because their drinking water exceeds a new federal safety standard for industrial chemicals that have long contaminated groundwater in the area.

In addition, state regulators will sample 400 to 500 wells within the area of contamination in coming months and issue additional drinking water advisories as needed.

He remained working in the Washington D.C. area, and had just passed the Chartered Financial Analyst Level III exam on August 9, 2016.

David was a loyal, selfless, caring son, brother, grandson, uncle, and friend to many. His volunteer work included Habitat for Humanity, service trips to Mexico (twice) and Mississippi, and the Polar Bear Plunge for the Special Olympics. In addition to his many academic successes, he was an accomplished athlete with a passion for tennis and soccer. David loved to travel throughout the United States and internationally.
