Earth Day – April 22, 2016

Dear Editor;

EARTH DAY is the day when the chickens dance and sing, proclaiming the beauties of nature, and the day the foxes that guard the chickens dance and sing, celebrating the blind gullibility and stupidity of the chickens.
Like ARBOR DAY, EARTH DAY has become a day of pretending that “all is good on Planet Eden.” On Arbor Day, the foxes line up before the cameras of the media, sprig and shovel in hand, pretending that the sprig will make up for the thousands of beautiful ancient trees that will be destroyed that very day.
EARTH DAY has become an even greater event that deceives the public into believing that corporate America has changed colors from brown to green. Why else would EARTH DAY events be sponsored by big oil, big military/industrial, big power, big chemical, and big automotive?
In actual fact these corporate chameleons paint their faces green, and paste on their toothy plastic smiles for the media and the gullible public, while their millions of corporate slaves go glibly about their jobs of destroying our air, our water, our forests, our soil, and ultimately our future.
It is their day now and thus the name should be changed to EARTH KILLERS’ DAY in order to expose the almost total emasculation of the environmental movement. The EPA has been sold to polluters by the POLITICAL WHORES that now seem to control America. Even the greatest destroyer of America the Beautiful? in history, the Army Corps of Engineers, has joined as sponsors of the EARTH DAY folly.
America has never been in graver danger. We have allowed dirty corporate money to purchase the loyalty and allegiance of those whom the people have elected to protect us, our children, and future generations from harm.
We are constantly bombarded with fear-mongering politicians, into focusing on terrorists living in caves on the other side of the world, while the most dangerous terrorists are our own eco-terrorists, the immoral mega-corporations and their political hacks that are hell bent on destroying our forests, our streams, our wetlands, our health, and our future as a viable nation.

Sincerely,
George H. Russell
American Patriot

Sheriff’s Office Creates “Safe Transaction Zones”
Dear Editor;

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office has created two Safe Transaction Zones designed to help protect citizens from various crimes associated with online transactions including robberies, thefts and assaults. Future planning will expand this initiative to additional locations.
The safe transaction zones are located at the Sheriff’s Office, 100 Center Drive, Riverhead, NY, and at our Yaphank Facility, (address). Both are clearly marked with red and white signs and are in full view of on duty Deputy Sheriffs. Over time, these areas will be enhanced with video cameras.
Citizens are encouraged to use the marked areas as a place to meet and conduct transactions that require in-person exchanges of online purchases.
Sheriff’s deputies will not participate in the exchanges or act as official witnesses in transactions. Most purchase agreements and transactions are civil matters. However with deputies nearby, the area will be safer for buyers and sellers and will deter criminals who want commit crimes against others.
Citizens are encouraged to use the area during daylight hours and will not have to schedule an appointment with the Sheriff’s Office.
Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind when conducting such transactions:
• Do not go to a transaction alone.
• Make sure a friend or family member is aware of the transaction details.
• Insist on meeting in a public area like our safe transaction zones.
• Do not go into someone else’s house, and do not allow them into yours
• Complete the transaction during daylight hours.
• Be extra cautious when buying or selling valuable items such as vehicles and jewelry.
• Only use cash or money orders to complete your transactions.
• Trust your instincts, if it sounds like a scam it probably is.
• If somebody is not willing to come to the Sheriff’s Office to do a transaction, it is probably not a legitimate transaction.

Sincerely,
Michael P. Sharkey
Chief Deputy Sheriff
