When you read this, you will start to understand why I've been trying to warn people.
In case you missed out on the video I did and embedded in my Notebook section, I shall elaborate on this subject here. It's really important information for everyone to know.

Long before I realized that something was seriously wrong, I've always been open minded about things. When looking at subjects about what I thought (along with everyone else) about these conspiracy theories, and I remember watching a few things about the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) being seriously bad news. I've curiously noticed quite a handful of these videos, and warnings of martial law. I watched some, and I also noticed a mixture of negative comments and other comments that were urging people to wake up.

I wasn't fully sure of what they were talking about for a while, until I saw this old news report, sometime this past January...

Guess what? There were no mentions of this anywhere else when it came to anyone else who talked about Hurricane Katrina, on any show on TV. Do you remember hearing anything from any Katrina survivor about being sick inside a toxic trailer? My memory is often very good. As I think on that, I never recalled anybody mentioning about living inside trailers and getting formaldehyde poisoning, before watching this video. (I've begun to think that they were paid to never talk about that.)

This, on CBS News... The rotten thing FEMA tried to do really surprised me. I also saw the CBS report about two trailer workers who spoke out, and said that they felt betrayed when they had been getting a lot of pressure from their bosses of the manufacturer of the trailers, called Gulfstream; http://gulfstreamrvtrailers.com/

Both of these videos can be found on the CBS News YouTube channel. You almost never see reports on mainstream networks about shady business like this.

After watching the video about FEMA getting busted, I thought, Why would they do that?! Those were thousands of innocent people who lost their homes in a really destructive hurricane! Hadn't that been enough for them to endure?! I know many people of reason and sanity who never heard about this before would ask themselves the very same things.

I also found out that the ABC and NBC networks also did their own investigative reports on this. Then, not long after that I saw a documentary about what happened, years after what happened after the failed cover-up. This was done by a researcher and medical anthropologist named Nicholas Shapiro. (Here is a website that describes his professional background: http://drexel.edu/coas/faculty-research/faculty-directory/NickShapiro/) In the video that was uploaded to YouTube on August 27th, 2015. The title of this video is titled, "People are still living in FEMA's toxic trailers."

In case you cannot spare 19 minutes to watch the documentary, then here is my summary of it.

The court that held the hearing against FEMA demanded to keep their trailers as evidence. Just past the beginning of this, it is mentioned. So many of these death homes were kept in one place. See picture: http://lh5.ggpht.com/_Dfc5PA0WMEw/S54zSQedcEI/AAAAAAAABXE/T3iTbt_i1gI/FEMA%20TRA...

This court order expired on January 1st, 2010. FEMA sold the trailers later, in auctions! They sold them for cheap, in large lots! There were no records beyond the auction paperwork. Many of them were resold to people who often had no knowledge of their toxicity.

Nicholas Shapiro in the video tracked down and located the trailers across every corner of America. The research on their locations had taken him to over a dozen states. He searched for them by their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Many of the people who contacted him weren't even sure if they actually had a FEMA trailer.

The trailers had sticker labels that read "NOT TO BE USED FOR HOUSING". Many of the stickers were removed before the trailers were resold!

Six to seven years after Katrina happened, Shapiro tested these trailers of their toxicity. The formaldehyde levels remained to be quite high! People have been living in the trailers he tested got very sick.

The symptoms of exposure to formaldehyde for on-going periods of time include breathing problems, nosebleeds, chronic diarrhea, irritation of the eyes, and headaches.

I searched for a while on both YouTube and Google for mainstream media reports about the good deeds Shapiro had done, and found no reports at all. (You can search for yourself to see what I mean.) I only found a small handful of alternate media articles online. I found that really suspicious, and I wondered why none of this shady business had been reported to any law enforcement. That's when I began to question what else wasn't very well known to the public, what else the TV media kept quiet about.

I was really shocked about this. FEMA's purpose is to help people out during natural disasters, right? That was really wrong of them to do. If they really cared about people, then they wouldn't have done nothing to help the hurricane survivors when they were receiving nose bleeds, burning of the eyes, or having respiratory problems. They wouldn't have attempted to sweep this horrendous crime under proverbial rug. That made me think to not rule out the possibility of FEMA camps. I learned a very important lesson, even when I looked into some information about who the director of FEMA was at that time; R. David Paulison. He was also the first Under Secretary for Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

People have a right to know these things. People have a right to know the truth, even when it is bad. Shady government activity should not be kept hidden from the masses! That's why I've started to do what I've been doing, since January. That's why I've been adding a ton of informative and eye-opening videos on the YouTube playlist of mine titled, "IMPORTANT! Wake up," as well as finding truthful songs - old and new - about world problems that have kept onward such as wars, racism, fascist government activity, and more - putting them into a separate playlist. I have found over 300 songs about these things, by various musicians and singers throughout the years.

What happened with the FEMA trailers wasn't what got me feeling even more shocked, disgusted, betrayed, and angry. Although, that is for another writing...

What are your thoughts about all of this? I encourage you share them when you review. Do not be afraid to comment on this!

I find it troubling that there are still many who prefer not to listen to reason, or even acknowledge the truth when facts are looking at them right in the face. Even when there's information all around, hidden in plain sight, they'd rather not know about it. They're either too scared, or they just don't care. Why won't they care, when their freedoms and lives are at stake?

Here's the answer; a quote from Mark Twain. "It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled."

Also, here's another good quote I've found, from the back of my dad's A.A. book. "There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance--that principle is contempt prior to investigation." - Herbert Spencer, an English philosopher, biologist, anthropologist, sociologist, and prominent classical liberal political theorist of the Victorian era.

Indeed, we are all living in very troubling times. It's only going to get worse the more people choose to call all this "conspiracy theory bunk," and ignore the warnings. Government is only going to do more to get their power, and restrict our freedoms further in the process. Researchers and truth tellers such as myself, even when we lay out all the factual articles and evidence - we are the Cassandras. We are calling out, while our "Rome" is crumbling apart.

I refuse to give up. I cannot. As a true patriot, and as someone who truly cares about people, I will keep doing what I do to influence positive change. It's my civil duty. I will do all I can to break everything down into pieces easy enough for most to understand. I refuse to give into fear and corruption. More ought to do the same, because it's possible that there is more than the way things are now! There must be.
