The Report of the Magistrate Judge, which contains proposed findings of fact and recommendations for the disposition of such action, has been presented for consideration. Plaintiff has filed objections.

Specifically, Plaintiff generally re-urges his ongoing arguments as to the merits of his environmental conditions case without raising anything to overcome the findings of the Report of the Magistrate Judge. He cites a few cases, some of which were also cited in the Report, but none substantiate his objections. Most particularly, he has no answer for the finding that his complaint exceeds the statute of limitations for cases filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983 except to say that he filed his grievances since 2006 and that "he done all that he could have possibly done when he kept submitting complaints," but had "no power over prison officials in making them answer the complaint."
