Bush launches last-minute deregulation push

White House moves to relax many rules covering private industry

By R. Jeffrey Smith

updated 4:17 a.m. ET, Fri., Oct. 31, 2008
The White House is working to enact a wide array of federal regulations, many of which would weaken government rules aimed at protecting consumers and the environment, before President Bush leaves office in January.

The new rules would be among the most controversial deregulatory steps of the Bush era and could be difficult for his successor to undo. Some would ease or lift constraints on private industry, including power plants, mines and farms.

Those and other regulations would help clear obstacles to some commercial ocean-fishing activities, ease controls on emissions of pollutants that contribute to global warming, relax drinking-water standards and lift a key restriction on mountaintop coal mining.

Sigh. Not entirely unexpected; just assume they're actively trying for the worst, with no more need to pretend to pretense. The public be damned. Regarding new regulations eliminating the need for environmental impact statements for fisheries-management decisions:

the administration has received 194,000 public comments on the rule and protests from 80 members of Congress as well as 160 conservation groups

And the impact they had was like water off an (oil-coated) duck's back.

Later in the article, this statement:

Jonathan Shradar, an EPA spokesman, said that he could not discuss specifics but added that "we strive to protect human health and the environment." Any rule the agency completes, he said, "is more stringent than the previous one."

More stringent, huh? Not just complete and utter BS, but completely transparent complete and utter BS.

Again, sigh...

well he won't be worrying about that as he's reported to have bought land in paraguay that sits on top of one the largest fresh water aquifers in the world. It's also a short drive from a us military base.

Five hundred U.S. troops arrived in Paraguay with planes, weapons, and ammunition in July 2005, shortly after the Paraguayan Senate granted U.S. troops immunity from national and International Criminal Court (ICC) jurisdiction. Neighboring countries and human rights organizations are concerned that the massive air base at Mariscal Estigarribia, Paraguay is potential real estate for the U.S. military.


still, he'll be in good company...paraguay - what a lovely country People should read that article and wonder what type of human would want to move to such a country.

I don't know the source anymore but about a year ago I read a news report that GWB was looking at property in Brazil.
I made jokes about how great a time he'd have,Just like his old days.
Cocaine heaven. Well Peruvian would probably his first choice, but close enough. Paraguay too great drugs there ! (GW when I grow up I wanna be a drug dealer)

Maybe he will start up a Cocaine Ranch.
Thats funny too since his dad
supposedly worked so hard to stop coc aine traffic with his Bloody attack on
Panama. Killed thousands of civies and trippled the coc aine traffic into the U.S.

Sorry off topic

Would anybody from A.T.S be disapointed if the alledged 'BULLET' with Obamas name on it should happen tp stray G.W.B's way, i mean c'mon. On one hand we hear that he cant wait to get out of office, then on the other hand we have this.
So who's pulling the strings, who's making him do this before his term is over,talk about last minute.

Ive ALWAYS HAD A LOVE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, but my god (still not sure what that is
) your goverment is out of this world.

We need Aequitas.

What can we do???? It is like we all just have to sit back and hold our breath and hope that Obama gets elected and can reverse this crap ASAP. The Republicans of this generation have voted twice for a president whom 98% of historians deem to be the WORST in history. They stood by him after he lied to us in order to start the war in Iraq. They stood by him after the debacle in New Orleans. They stood by him as he shredded the constitution. They stood by him after he reduced this once great country to a shelf of its former self. They will stand by him as he passes this legislation. And now, they are about to come out in hordes to vote for a man who is only 10% (based on his voting record) better than Bush and chose who a beauty queen for a VP. When will they ever learn? Sadly, I am afraid the answer to this question is never. Wake up Republicans, admit that you were wrong and learn from your mistakes before it is too late.

I'll just say it once, the only way to actually stop these mother**ckers is to shoot them and kill them. we've tried being nice, we've wrote letters and held protests. Now I'm sorry to say it but if you really want change now, the only thing to do it is a militia. Why are we told that non-violence will sway these peoples minds? Why can't anybody get pissed off and take this country back. They don't even keep it behind closed doors anymore, Americans are so lazy that they'll watch it take place right before their eyes and do absolutely nothing about it. We're being poisoned, bankrupted, robbed, raped, lied to and laughed at, and all they need to do is have a press secretary give some bull shat story to the msm, and on top of it they call us crazy for thinking somethings wrong with what they're doing. Thank god i have too much of a heart, or i would be the first one to put a bullet in Mr. bush's head, and don't get me started on were i would place some highly explosive ordnance.

DISCLAIMER:: I am not, nor will ever be a terrorist, aside from the fact that the federal government would be the first to brand me as one. I am just a very pissed off patriot that still has enough brains left to want to take this country back (Whether or not it may be violent) So please, do not think of my words as threats, think of them as my right to show feelings on what has been and continues to happen to americans. (No need to worry NSA I already know you're reading this:lol

Bush has the mindset of a suicidal gunman in a tower on a colledge campus. He knows he can never undo the damage he has done, so rather than try, he wants to go out in what he sees as a blaze of glory. Immaturity at it's best.

As opposed to insinuating that a member cannot control his or her bodily functions and requires "Romper Room Day Care?"

Would that be maturity at it's best?

I suppose they go hand in hand. And there was no insinuation for anyone in perticular, but to those concerned, if the shoe fits, wear it.

Your cross thread anger is showing; you might want to adjust your "slip". (Or have I angered you to the point of cyber stalking my posts? Don't worry, I won't call a mod. If your all I ever need to worry about, I feel safe.

Add: I'm a happy person, just an honest one.(See, I can cross post between threads too.)

Let's follow China's lead. Start introducing melamine to products to up the protein levels. Screw the wastewater plants. Just dump it into the rivers. You want clean water guys pffft. Clean shmean. Who needs tower scrubbers? I loved watching the stacks at Ford in the 70's belch out orangish plumes.

Every major decision shrub has made has been on the side of big oil, big pharma, and big company. His hands have been greased so many times I wonder how he goes number one. Probably has an aid for that.

I loved the EPA's comments, 'they will be even more stringent'. My big fat ... it will.

The American public, sitting around ringing their hands, and waiting for a 'Knight in Shining' to rescue them.

NOBody does Anything to you that you Don't let them do.

WE did this !! We allowed our Rights to be stolen !!!

We The People....

We have Nobody to blame but ourselves !!!!

No one has ever gotten anything done by ...Sitting Back ,Holding their Breath and hoping that some Other Guy will take care of things for us !!!!!

If you think Obama can reverse this Catastrophic fiasco ASAP, You, Sir Or Madam, are Sadly Mistaken.

You Can "HELP" Stop this Manure Pile from getting any higher !!!! Pick up a shovel and start digging us out of our own mess !!

We are the only ones Who Can Stop it !! Get up ! Go do something about it !
Look at what 'Sitting Back' has gotten us so far.,And now you want to let him rub your face in it one more time !!!

War crimes, basically a world terrorist. Bush, Cheney, and those associated with them (Rove for one), ALL need to be jailed. Sent to prison, or stripped of citizenship then sent to Afghanistan after we announce we are sending them there. OR, release ALL at Guantimo Bay TORTURE facility then send those who stuck by Bush (Cheney, Rove), to that prison. GREAT managers often say, "I won't expect or ask anything of you that I would not do myself." They obviously think they own the world, and have been out to RUIN it for a dollar (RUINED the dollar also it seems). They honestly need to be arrested for war crimes.
