This afternoon, I was sent a video that was simply horrific! It showed disgusting living conditions, not for people in third world countries but for our NEIGHBORS in Uniontown, Ala.

Residents of Uniontown say environmental conditions are poisoning them. If what is supposed to be their sewage system is really what was displayed in this video, it is beyond sad and immoral!

WHO are their civic leaders? (Is this list accurate?)

Why hasn’t this been fixed?  Why wasn’t the landfill placed in an uninhabited area? There are NUMEROUS forest areas that contain hundreds of acres across the country.  Did they find the cheapest land they could to put this landfill?  Were the residents in the area not taken into consideration?

That joke of a sewer system…. As the gentleman said in the video, why flush your toilet?

This is disgusting! And the comments on the video are further proof that we have to take care of our own.  We can’t expect others to do something about our problem.  Even if you don’t live in Uniontown, it is still OUR problem.  We didn’t create it, but we have to be vigilant until it is fixed. And it doesn’t require selling any type of property.

Many people say, “If you don’t like the way things are, leave.”  But the preamble of the Declaration of Independence states the following:

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights’ that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The very language under which this nation was establish says it is self-evident that not only are ALL men created equal but also that their Creator has given them the rights to life, to freedom, and to pursue happiness!

Subjecting ANYONE to these living conditions infringes upon these rights, and we need answers!
