"Yep, they sacrificed the farmland to save the 3,000 citizens of Cairo, Illinois. Those citizens could be evacuated. Our farmland could not be moved and putting aside fears that toxic river sludge will degrade the land, it will remain one of the richest river delta agricultural production areas well into the future. With the decision to blow the levee the insurance companies that protect the farmers against catastrophic "acts of God"....a technical term that courts have long used as a benchmark for determining insurance liability....will be off the hook and the farmers will be on their own. Without funds to rebuild, they will be forced to sell at reduced prices. In come the big ag-companies like ConAgra or Archer Daniels Midland and other major agriculture companies. The U.N. Oil for Food scandal proved that people are not now, nor ever have been above using food as a weapon," said Meyers Hickman of New Madrid, Missouri.

"The Sikh's are India's super warriors and they identified with the Brits after they were subjugated by them. They would make the logical alliance for those wanting to put Osama Bin Laden "on ice" so to speak, while waiting for an opportunity to announce his demise."
"I'm also looking into which insurance companies got off the hook with the Army Corp of Engineer's decision and who at the top of the Army Corp of Engineers is most closely connected to these seemingly unrelated parties. I'm delighted that Osama Bin Laden is dead, but did we have to invade Iraq to get the son of the Saudi Royal Family's chief architect? Fifteen of the nineteen hijackers were from Saudi Arabia and we invaded Iraq. Something doesn't add up. I'm glad that President Obama is claiming responsibility for Bin Laden's capture and death, God knows if it happened on GWB's watch it would have jeopardized his longstanding economic relationship with the Saudi Royal Family which is also supporting his family's oil investments in Bahrain," said Mr. Hickman. "But I'm a little concerned that Mrs. Michele Obama worked for the Springfield, Illinois law firm that represented Mrs. Mary Todd Lincoln and which like Lincoln, himself, was beholding to the railroad interests of Mr. Harriman of the Union Pacific Railroad which became Brown Brothers Harriman with its historic connections to Brown & Root. Whenever it comes to their interests being protected patriotism for the U.S. becomes murky....like the Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio flood waters," Hickman concluded.
