    So what, three sips and we're dead? Guzzle for 50 years and you may get cancer? Give us some context please.

    Is the municipal water supply one of those socialist perks we're supposed to be grateful for?

    You're only grateful because Bush and the Republicans repealed so many regulations.

    I thought this was hilarious under Yahoo "Answers":

    Bush has relaxed restrictions against pollution across the board, including lower standards for the cleanliness of drinking water. Do republicans really not care about your children enough to want them to have clean water to drink?

    The hilarious answer:

    Hey Av, I think George has a limited amount of time left to do an historic amount of damage...Need I say more? When was the last time the welfare of the American public was a political concern?

    Why is Bush deregulating pollution controls just before he leaves office? - Yahoo! Answers

    Wasn't that funny? Limited time for a historic amount of damage? :lol::eusa_clap::ssex::rofl::laugh2::laugh:

    Specifically, which regulations put chromium in the drinking water?

    This should be good, because Erin Brockovich brought suit against Pacific Gas & Electric, in California, in 1993, 7 years before Bush was elected.

    The case was settled in 1996, 4 years before Bush was elected.

    So Bush didn't "deregulate"? Careful. Know the facts.
