My favorite part - Now the administration is pushing Congress to exempt millions of acres of military land from major environmental requirements. Four years after President Bush campaigned on a pledge to make the military "comply with environmental laws by which all of us must live," the White House is the Pentagon's chief ally in pushing for relief from such laws.

Of course I'm sure the Far Right consider USAToday to be a liberal rag and a mouthpiece for the Dems

This also illustrates why 1/4 of the states are suing the EPA for relaxing clean air and water regulations. Bush (and his donors) just don't care if you drink dirty water and breathe dirty air. Clean air and water hurts the profits of his supporters and is thus superfluous.

Environment?

I'm dead in about 60 years, none of this will matter to me then.

I think environmental regulation is best left to the states and cities since it's far more effective, I think, to deal with it at a local level. Witness CA's more stringent laws regarding air pollution as an example.

In some respects I agree, but environmental decisions by any state potentially affect several or many other states. The federal government should set some baseline standards. However, if individual states want to set more restrictive standards for some things, I don't see why not.

Yeah..it's funny..no flip flop.

When you find out your or your spouse or your children have a disease / terminal illness caused by pollution from a Gov't site...and then you find out your right to sue/get compensation/health care has been revoked .. or to even force the Gov't to clean up it's mess.

OR

You find out that the Republicans have enacted laws to shield it's campagin donors from legal action, including cleaning up it's messes...


Don't you dare open your mouth and whine about how awful things are. Just go off and suffer in silence and enjoy drinking your filthy water and sooty air.
