February 2, 2013

Thank goodness some in the judiciary are willing to stand up to the Obama administration and its Environmental Protection Agency, which continues to appeal rejections of its attempt to choke the......

What would really work, is if the government could get each and every one of US into a plastic bubble....to protect us....for our own good.

I feel we could come together to make that work....

CFLs should be built with a plastic covering to contain the mercury and hopefully will be fazed out with LEDs.

Good point and there should be a deposit required and the stores should have to recycle them. Same for Antifreeze.

Rubber composition; Latex, Sulfur, and Carbon black. Don't worry EarlyBird, Rubber is 100% biodegradable and harmless.

If the epa wants to study something they should study where the rubber from our car tires goes to when its gone from our tires. My gosh the tires must be disappearing into thin air and we are breathing in icky old rubber and oil by-products when we drive on hi-ways. I think we should all just stay home so we don't destroy the earth. Don't forget we have some kind of surgeon general or somebody who is supposed to look out for our health also.

Don't you just long for the good old days before the EPA when Lead was in paint and gasoline, and asbestos was in Drywall? When companies could discharge raw sewage and chemicals into the rivers and sometimes they caught on fire? When they could burn and discharge anything into the atmosphere?

Isn’t it just great that those judges are preventing the EPA from stopping all of those power plants from pumping tons of Mercury into our air?

"Fortunately, at least one federal appeals court has decided it will not tolerate such bullying, no matter who is encouraging it."

The Minot Daily takes a jab at Obama by implying he is a bully.

Obummer is probably worse than that.

As a reminder, coal was called upon to solve the energy crisis when oil was being foisted as the bad guy of energy. Oil was a target back then. Coal was the rescue fuel back then. Today it is Natural Gas to the rescue.

Hypocrites

All of these rules and regulations are designed to strangle all markets, and is the goal. Coal is a target. After that, it will be something else. All kinds of laws and executive orders implemented to chip away at your freedoms is another goal. All carefully crafted, propaganda is used extensively. These goons never stop at their chicanery.

In the court of public opinion, they're doomed.

We can't leave these cronies out, what a system we have allowed to develope, it *****. "The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest court in the United States. It has ultimate (and largely discretionary) appellate jurisdiction over all federal courts and over state court cases involving issues of federal law, and original jurisdiction over a small range of cases.[1] The Court, which meets in the United States Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C., consists of a chief justice and eight associate justices who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate. Once appointed, justices have life tenure unless they resign, retire, or are removed after impeachment."

I like the part where the administrator is appointed by the President, he has pockets full of people!

This is all we need to know about the EPA! "The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or sometimes USEPA) is an agency of the United States federal government which was created for the purpose of protecting human health and the environment by writing and enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress.[2] The EPA was proposed by President Richard Nixon and began operation on December 2, 1970, after Nixon signed an executive order. The order establishing the EPA was ratified by committee hearings in the House and Senate.[3] The agency is led by its Administrator, who is appointed by the president and approved by Congress. The current administrator is Lisa P. Jackson. The EPA is not a Cabinet department, but the administrator is normally given cabinet rank."So you see it is politicians who are trying to protect us not science.

This court decision won't prevent the EPA continuing to look at fracking.
