They’re not really making true restitution. It sounds all nice and satisfactory but it’s just a facade, imho. My dad was told he shouldn’t expect much in the way of compensation other than more disability benefits maybe and care from the VA. He’s been using private insurance for a long time. He might end up going to the VA but it’s just.. it isn’t the Mayo Clinic or whatever. Anyway, for those who may not have the info- I’ll post it again since someone was taking about it this morning.

The Camp LeJeune Justice Act was just signed into law in Aug 22 and victims have two years from the statute’s date of enactment to file suit. That’s why you’re seeing so many ads from attorneys on tv etc. https://www.militarytimes.com/opinion/commentary/2022/08/10/camp-lejeune-toxic-water-victims-families-are-now-closer-to-justice/ https://www.selectjustice.com/news/camp-lejeune/understanding-the-camp-lejeune-justice-act-of-2022

When I was talking about it this morning here on a different post, I was saying there are a lot of very toxic things the military get exposed to. So many. This is just one that got enough attention. I’d just love to know what will pop up in the future. We used to get covered in hydraulic fluid. So much me and buddies have hand stiffness now. What’s going on inside? What about all the hearing damage caused by faulty ear plugs? That lawsuit was going to amount to a few hundred bucks each if we wanted to join a class action suit. Wasn’t worth the paperwork. Meanwhile vets are killing themselves over it because tinnitus can cause you severe sleep problems, anxiety and depression. Or how about the water at Camp Pendleton that gave everyone heartburn? Or the mold visibly growing in barracks? I’ll shut up now. It’s just a crime how they threat the military and it’s been really bad since Obummer. It got better under Pres Trump- substantially better. But now..... the Afghanistan failure, forced jabs, woke Bs and cutbacks everywhere. It’s disgusting. Beyond disgusting. That’s nice they’re gonna pretend to compensate those who were impacted by Camp LeJeune’s toxic water.

Some people here aren’t worried, some people brush this all off as hype but a lot of us are well prepared and still concerned. I’m one of those. Andrew devastated south Fl back in the day. I saw the effects of Panama City and Port Charlotte a few years ago. People were devastated. Irma was no joke. It wasn’t as bad as expected but there was a lot of damage. When you lose power, and 15 million people just in Florida did with Irma-you have people suffering from heat related problems and exacerbation of existing medical conditions. Think of all the older people living in FL. It’s a certainty that many will suffer because they have no support. So I don’t take this lightly. I hope it veers west but nobody knows till it’s closer.

There are a lot of areas in Tampa and St Pete that flood. The flood zones were evacuating today as well as all mobile home dwellers. That’s smart because storm surge and flash floods cause the most deaths in any hurricane. You have to take it seriously.

Warnings are up now. Please reach out to any friends or relatives who live down in FL and make sure they’re doing ok and make sure they’re able to leave if ordered.

I’m in Tampa and I ran to Publix for some deli stuff around noon today (immediately regretted it) and it was packed with people loading up carts. Also, so many masked people, mostly older but UGH!! The parking lot was packed, no carts available but I didn’t need one. Thankfully, Publix is always on their game and had multiple lanes open. They were testing their alarm system with that sound you hear when there is an emergency alert in your phone. It just added to the panic heavy atmosphere.

Seriously don’t understand why everyone waits till the last few days to stock up. It’s always the same story, though. No water left, no stupid bread.

Idk it is a huge can of worms. It’s possible and wouldn’t that be convenient! But there are so many toxic things you get exposed to in the mil. The water at Pendleton gave us heartburn.. the hydraulic fluid that got all over us (we now have finger stiffness after only a few years) and the tinnitus from all the noise, not to mention the mold growing in our barracks. Yeah, I just don’t know because there are so many, too many toxic things to even begin to figure out what caused it and then you add in C19 jabs on top of all the ridiculous number of other jabs they force you to get when you first go in.

My dad is suffering kidney damage and he was at camp LeJeune. He was told not to expect much compensation from the civil suit but the VA will cover his medical. He’s been private insurance for years but he thinks it could save money going back to the VA. Idk. But all these ads on tv piss me off because it’s BS. Like the hearing loss/ tinnitus lawsuit from defective earplugs. I talked to Morgan and Morgan and there is a big class action suit for that and it’s a ton of paperwork and you might end up with a few hundred bucks. Not even worth the time but many, many vets experience suicidal ideation from having tinnitus. It’s just one of a zillion side effects serving in the mil causes.

English muffins, baked beans and velveeta cheese broiled in the oven was a fav in many military homes I knew of. Maybe this is how it started?

I live in Tampa, not in an evacuation zone. I went through Irma and we had a lot of branches down in the area, lots of flooding in South Tampa and other certain areas. I think when it rolled through it was a cat 2. I had 15 contractor bags of yard waste. Look at your trees and see if anything needs trimming. You may still be able to get someone to trim them up. Make sure umbrellas are inside and furniture put away outside. It’s no joke that stuff can fly. I had a heavy concrete base and umbrella that went airborne recently just during a normal storm. The base smashed.

I had a bunch of people over from St Pete and they didn’t even lose power but we did for a couple days. Be prepared for that even inland.

The first thing everyone did was rush out to get gas so do that now if you need it. Also- the shelves were cleared out of bread (LOL) and water really quickly. Lots of people boarded up windows, I did not but Home Depot and Lowe’s had signs up well before the storm hit that they were out of plywood. We were expecting a cat 4 or 5 with that one, though. Propane was really hard to find. I imagine it will be this time, so get that now if needed. So get supplies now or make reservations if you’re planning on evacuating. Do not wait to make sure it’s really going to hit your area. It never hurts to have extra supplies.

I notice a lot of people I know are not prepared ever for a storm or emergency, not even extra water stored. Kind of mind blowing. They all rush out last minute and the stores are crazy. I remember shopping last time for some random stuff and people had cartloads of panic buying.

Sandbags are starting to be available in our area. https://www.tampafp.com/st-petersburg-sandbag-distribution-begins-monday/

I wonder if it’s China/Xi getting booted. It’s rumor right now, though.

Thanks for the post and info. I figured they took what he said out of context. True to crappy MSM form.

Here’s the thing- if you hold off on what seems like a very important long term family project, it could get stalled for other matters, as well. Someone could get hit by a bus or idk, weather events, anything really. Look at your smaller world rather than the bigger world right now. This seems like an outstanding project. Look at the pluses and minuses for the whole project(s.) Is this going to be really beneficial in the long run? I don’t think housing is ever going to be cheap. Wouldn’t it be nice to have that security of having a family homestead you control for the most part? Don’t let the world stand in your way. Lumber is down, plumbing parts are cheap, so is electrical for the most part. You run into a lot of money with tile, countertops, roofing materials, some flooring but the biggest costs come from hiring contractors. If this is diy, you’ve got this! It’s really necessary to hire qualified pros for big electrical and plumbing projects but so many demos and renos can be done (with some online tutorials) yourself.

You have to go with your gut as well as what is best for all of you. Pray on it if you do that. You’re experiencing a stressful time so put it on hold a little while but I would not scrap it. I’ve done a ton of work on my own to my 45 year old house, even lately with prices being higher. They don’t seem unreasonably high compared to food and gas though. Idk where you live but I think it’s a fantastic idea. Hang in there.

I just started Dahmer last night. Very well done, not for the squeamish. The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez, The Keepers and Wormwood I also thought were very good. I’ve watched all of Leah Remini/Scientology and Going Clear but I think that was HBO and an older but very entertaining crime drama is Bloodline. It’s awesome. Keep Sweet, Pray and Obey is about the rise of Warren Jeffs in the FLDS.. I can suggest many more but these may interest you.

Also-Screwball is a documentary about the 2013 baseball doping scandal. It’s excellent though may sound kind of meh if you’re not into baseball. But it’s well worth the watch.

Also adding-dont watch Dahmer. 4 episodes in and too grisly and disturbing for me. Ugh.
