Q&A: How can I get rid of Poison Ivy (the plant)….??

Question by Lady Harley99: How can I get rid of Poison Ivy (the plant)….??
I have this blueberry bush that has Poison Ivy growing up in the middle of it… if you want to see it… I took a picture of it yesterday…

PROBLEM is, I am HIGHLY allergic to Poison Ivy!!
And it’s wrapped around the blueberry bush that, I’m afraid to have my hubby put something on it… don’t want it to kill the blueberry bush AND / or don’t want anything to “taint” our blueberries!

Oh, I didn’t pick any blueberries this year because of this Poison Ivy!!! So, any (good) help you can give will be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks, LH99 :o)

I would hire someone to come and get rid of it – I’m very allergic too, and it’s just not worth messing around with. Yes, you might lose the blueberry bush too, but are you absolutely positive you could clean them well enough to be safe to eat? Poison Ivy…what was God thinking when he came up with that?!?

Clinton calls withdrawal of troops from Iraq ‘top priority’?

Question by TOOTAl2: Clinton calls withdrawal of troops from Iraq ‘top priority’?
Why does Clinton want to pull the troops out of iraq right away and risk an unstable middle east. and have the price of oil go way up. Only 2 troops were killed in iraq last month. So why would they take this risk?

is it because they hate bush?

Answer by Phil
Let us go to how the war began. It started by selling lies to us that Saddam has WMD’s. Those were never found. Then if you follow the media news over last 4 years, you will see that the face of the enemy was changed every 2-3 months. For a few days it was WMD’s, then Saddam, then his Sons, then Abu-Musab something, then Muqtada Al-Sadr, then elections, then stability, then democracy etc etc and now sectarian voilence ….and another one is “Baghdad Crackdown”. Each face of the enemy suggesting that once this is over everything is going to be normal. These faces given to the enemy are nothing but to hijack the minds of the public, to divert from the fact that NOT A SINGLE IRAQI wants America there. We should just put in our minds and think where do these so called “terrorists” enter into Iraq from? They are born everyday within Iraq. What would a single person whose whole family is killed in a raid and he/she is left alone? God forbid, if I were that person, I will become a suicide bomber and kill a few soldiers who were responsible for the raid. This has what been happenning since the war started. The war killed more innocent Iraqi’s in 4 years than what 10 Saddams would have killed in 50 years.
Good that atleast now the troops being called back is looked at with top priority. Atleast another few thousands of lives will be saved now

CNN Reports BP Gulf Oil Spill Well Permantently Capped With Static Kill

CNN is reporting that BP and the federal government say that the BP Gulf Oil Spill has been permanently stopped using static kill. The claim is that by filling the well with mud heavier than oil the well has been put in a ‘static condition’ meaning that even if the cap was removed the well would no longer leak. But is it true? Several videos captured from the underwater robots monitoring the well show that the well is still leaking in several places on or near the blowout preventer. For example, this video shows the BOP leaking almost 12 hours after BP claimed that static kill has killed the well. More on this story:

New Gulf Coast Evacuation Signs. Is it coming due to us getting sick from toxins?

They are now admitting that the oil is and has been evaporating which those of us sick already knew. They still haven’t started touching the fact that the “dispersant” Corexit 9500 is still all in the water and evaporating here. Also let me mention John Wathen is not a pilot and it is not his plane. I misspoke in the video and just wanted to clear that up. Go here to see his flight I reference in the video. I know people are starting to think all is well. BUT it i not! I’m not even going to get into why the “static kill” is working so far! do your research yourself. Anyway. Tell me what you think about so many signs so close together right on the gulf coast

BP says well in Gulf reached static condition

August 4, 2010- BP announced that the MC252 well in the Gulf of Mexico appears to have reached a static condition for the first time since it’s April 20th explosion, thereby creating the worst oil spill disaster in world history, according to some scientists. The well pressure is now being controlled by the hydrostatic pressure of the drilling mud, which was the desired outcome of the static kill procedure carried out late yesterday. Now that the flow of oil has been completely cut off, the next step in ensuring a permanent end to the leakage, will be to cement the well. Depending upon weather conditions, mid-August is the likely date by which the first permanent kill and cement operations will commence. BP stock is trading up 1.5% Wednesday morning, to a price of .62, on the news.
