Mrs. Jones of Georgia
>>> BUT FIRST A QUICK NOTE:
My former Congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney responded within an hour to my including her in my last emailing of the most recent blog post, asking for details on corruption, not only in Stone Mountain, where she had represented me, but in Wilmington, NC as well. We have only just begun . . .
But Cynthia FIRST made a name for herself when she represented a district in East Georgia, full of "hard-scrabble" small farmers, whose families had generations ago signed over mineral rights to corporations, due to her district having some of the largest kaolin deposits in the world. Any chemists out there know that kaolin has TONS of industrial uses, known best to us as what magazine paper is coated with to make it slick -- and it is the chief ingredient in Kaopectate, as well as in many fine chinas.
Although everything was actually LEGAL about these contracts, they were signed mostly by un-educated, country people (both black and white), in the early Twentieth Century, and the farmers had contracted to allow the corporations to strip-mine their farms for about ONE DOLLAR an acre -- and they were NOT repairing the land after they completed.
Cynthia DOGGED THEM, shamed them, etc., and she finally won greater compensation and got the companies to REPAIR the land after completion.
Ya don't SCREW with a good Georgia WOMAN!!!
