    Looks to me like this is a problem that would eventually work itself out. If people who live in these smog ridden areas are more prone to health complications and maybe death if it gets bad enough, then if enough them die there will be fewer people putting smog in the air, so smog levels shoudl eventually go down.

    And guess who ends up paying for the health bills of those who breathe in this crap? It sure isn't the companies that are polluting. So much for the Republican idea of personal responsibility.

    I'm about as much a Republican as you are, and nowhere do you see a statement from me advocating anyone shirking responsibility.

    I have a problem with everything this government does costs me more and more, instead of THEM being responsible and cutting some of their bullshti spending to fund their great ideas.

    LMAO. Of all the presidential candidates who ran in the primaries name your top 5.

    So then you do thing that businesses should have to pay to offset their pollution?

    Oh no...you may have to pay some more money to keep innocent kids from getting sick. I feel oh so sorry for you.

    Great call by the EPA. The polluters need to pay the price for their pollution. The polluters don't have a right to damage me or my environment. Lemme know the next time you ride an elevator, gunny. I'll be sure to ride with you and give you an enormous fart for you to enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There weren't 5 people I'd vote for in the primaries. There's aren't 3 people in the primaries I'd vote for currently.

    Smoke and mirrors. There is no "offsetting pollution." There's only scamming on a way to steal some of their profit.

    I'm quite sure you have no problem with stealing money I have earned right out of my wallet to support your agenda(s).

    Name all who you would vote for.

    Umm, actually there are ways to offset pollution. Trees help. As does polluting less.

    Not really no. Neither do you have any problem with doing the same to me. But nice bullshit rhetoric there.

    By the way...its pretty pathetic that you can't get on board with an agenda that, as said in this thread, is based towards allowing people to live in environments that don't lead to their deaths because of corporate greed.

    Not to worrry. Bush already rolled back some of the EPA rules to protect our fukking environment.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/13/AR2008031304175_pf.html

    Some day we will have to play the game, "How Bush & Company Have Raped Our Protective Agencies" by putting them in charge of former lobbyist for the industries they are supposed to regulate.

    Have to take a break and change the cartridges on my respirator.:rolleyes:

    Get rid of government sponsored health care and voila, problem eliminated.
