Well people, here's a preview of what can happen to the rest of the country if our PNAC loving, tea bagging, Libertarian professing, neocon parroting, Dixiecrat, Bluedog Dem friends have their way: From Newsday, October 6, 2010 Newsday - The Long Island and New York City News Source TENNESSEE No fee, no fire protection Firefighters let a mobile home burn to the ground because the owner didn't pay a $75 fire protection fee, authorities say. Jeff Vowell, city manager of South Fulton, said Gene Cranick's double-wide trailer near the Kentucky border was allowed to burn last week because he didn't pay. Cranick's son, Timothy, angrily went to the firehouse and punched the chief. He was charged with aggravated assault. And just as a kicker: Washington EPA opposed on controls The Environmental Protection Agency has run into bipartisan opposition from senators over its plans to cut mercury and other toxic emissions from factory boilers and from heating plants at shopping malls and universities. The dust-up over a seemingly routine environmental rule shows how political worries about the economy and pressure from industries are leading Congress to try to restrain the EPA.
