    Obama to cut $48 billion a year from the organizations sworn to protect the USA from foreign enemies.

    Obama announces new, leaner military approach - The Washington Post

    Using NERA Economic Consulting data, the Manufacturers Alliance/MAPI last month predicted that implementing the technologies needed to meet EPA’s proposed goal would cost the economy a staggering $1 trillion every year. A total of 7.3 million jobs would be lost along the way, adding 4.3 percent of the work force to the unemployment line by 2020.

    My, you fellows are really full of shit. So you want this nation to have the same pollution controls as China. What a fine vision for this nation.

    Can the EPA protect us from nuclear fall out from Iran?


    And and the military retirees benefits and medical care are going to be "reduced" whatever happened to "lets take care of our vets"?

    it just gets dumber and dumber every day around here.

    It appears that America is the ONLY country that thinks protecting the snail darter existence is MORE important then protecting the country that protects the snail darter.

    That it is more important to spend TAX revenue protecting the environment (THAT enemies want to destroy) then protect the country and people and the tax base that pays the taxes
    i.e. the businesses that generate jobs that generate revenue that generates TAXES!

    Do you understand the illogic of your statement?

    If China with poorer standards takes over the USA because we have a diminished military capability BECAUSE we preferred to spend protecting the snail darter it will be a moot point because the conquering Chinese wouldn't CARE ...obviously!

    Put another way which would you prefer:
    Destroying the tax base from within while protecting the snail darter OR
    Protecting the tax base and breath cleaner?

    Because the lack of plain common sense, I.E. destroy 32 electric utility plants that are cleaning 90% of the emissions seems more important!

    The defense cut is too small, but it's a start.

    It is the polluting industry that is draining the money....... as always.

    They operate without ethics and in fiance of regulations. Put the white collar polluters in jail as the only way to keep them from polluting.

    Private industry is the problem!!!

    Most of the money will go into "green energy" projects. In other words, the government will piss it down the sewer. Obama will dole out the funds to his political cronies. This is nothing more than crony capitalism on a vast scale.

    What a total fucking retard drone. The USA already has pollution controls 100 times more strict than China's. Declining to approve Obama's boondoggle spending and regulation schemes doesn't mean our existing laws will evaporate.

    Anytime someone opposes the latest environmental wacko boondoggle. turds like you resort to the same old hysterical abracadbra
