You're invited to read a letter I recently wrote (below)
and sent to the President of the United States. (POTUS)
Y'all have my permission to copy this, put your name in place of mine and send it to him.
Whatever you may have been led to think about DDT, what is written here is The TRUTH.
1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVE NW
Dear Mr. President,
am a “nobody” and I'm probably a good representative of your
constituency. I said at the outset of rumors of your bid for the
office of POTUS that you, as an internationally successful
businessman of renown, were exactly what America needs. The personal
character traits you exhibit are of little consequence compared to
your demonstrated acumen at accomplishing “the deal” to your
advantage. Now you're exercising your talents on behalf of America.
Your handling of the various heads of state you've been meeting
maintains my confidence in having made a good decision in casting my
vote for you. To underscore that feeling I'll point out that
watching the mindless antics of the Congress gives me similar
confidence that you're doing right. It's difficult to find fault
with anything that ticks-off that crowd. Good on you again, sir!
us consider the chemical known as DDT. Invented in the latter days
of the 1800s, it's singularly responsible for controlling many
mosquito borne illnesses world wide. Then, as a knee-jerk reaction to
a bit of mindless and completely groundless propaganda, the use of
DDT was banned. This happened so quickly there was no opportunity
for science to play the important role it should have in such
matters. DDT is and always was “environmentally safe.” It's so
safe you can eat it by the spoonful without fear. Since it's ban,
DDT has been Scientifically PROVEN innocent of all the claims that
got it banned. It was innocent of every bad thing it was
accused of. Yet, to this very day it's publicly blamed for the
reduced populations of the Bald Eagle among other sins. It's been
established that DDT played no part in any of those phenomenon. Not
guilty again. The North African campaigns of WW1, WW2 and the
successful completion of the Panama Canal are just 3 of the many
accomplishments that would have been impossible without the use of
DDT. Just ask the real experts.
the mosquito borne diseases are coming back. There is a simple way to
drive those diseases back into obscurity. Bring back DDT. I'm sure
you can easily verify what I claim here. I'll say it again, DDT is
and always was environmentally safe. You'll have to get your fact
checkers to look past the EPA since that bureaucracy is complicit in
promoting and maintaining the ongoing anti-DDT propaganda campaign.
They are maintaining public ignorance by passing falsehoods as truth
for no good reason that can be identified. You, Mr. President, are
someone that can bring out the truth and get this situation changed
by simply making casual mention of these matters.
EPA has done little good for America. The ban of the manufacture and
use of DDT was nothing less than a hysterical and emotional leap to
false conclusions. The entire world has been made to suffer a
laundry list of growing hazards as a result of EPA meddling. The
“official” information available on the internet makes claims
about “trace amounts” found here and there years after the ban of
DDT. The same can be said for Fluoride, a truly poisonous product
found world wide in toothpaste. The same can also be said for
Arsenic, a poison that exists in “trace amounts” throughout
nature. To the remarks of finding trace amounts of DDT I suggest
asking, “so what?” Be sure to carefully watch how they struggle
to very-carefully answer that question.
chemicals have come and gone since the ban of DDT, all of which are
far more hazardous to “the environment” let alone being just
plain toxic. You certainly can't eat a spoonful of any of them like
you can DDT. Good old DDT was more effective and less hazardous than
any of it's replacements. No chemical exists that was or is as
effective and as environmentally safe as DDT. Meanwhile,
America and the rest of the world has a steadily growing incidence of
mosquito borne diseases.
President, I don't have a dog in the fight but I ask that you cast
the light of day on this shady business. By merely saying something
about it you could right a grievous wrong that the EPA has foisted on
the whole modern world. These facts I mention are not unknown. Have
one of your minions have a look into it for you. It's just not being
talked about by anyone that has any voice. However, the voice of the
POTUS is heard everywhere and by everyone no matter how casual a
remark he makes. You can right this wrong by just saying something
about it. Among your many well and lesser known accomplishments,
past and future, it would certainly cast you in a very bright light
to be personally responsible for making the entire world a safer
place for all of humanity.
President, say something about the DDT scam.
