    Section 1713 of the Budget Bill is said to:

    Don't Let Congress Roll Back 40 Years of Environmental Protections

    If this is an accurate description, this bill MUST be stopped.

    Have you read more about it?

    I think we need to pass it so we can see what's in it.

    Uh, no. I would actually like some accurate information, RGS. Being as I am a Republican fond of breathing myself and all.

    You keep making that claim, sorry toots but we don't need liberal republicans go join your real buddies the Democrats. As I recall you also attacked your State party cause in one month they hadn't done what you wanted in a 2 year stint in power. Go figure. I have YET to see you attack democrats for anything.

    A biased assessment I think Stripping the tops off mountains does not result in coal ash. By using imagery like that, the article appeals to our emotions rather than logic.

    The IPCC has shown itself to be a fraud. funding it would be akin to a government subsidy for Bernie Madoff.
    If we need a climate panel, let Congress create it, not NOAA. One bureaucracy, creating another is about the same as Cabinet agencies enacting laws without the consent of Congress. This is what the GOP is concerned with.

    Actually, my biggest concern is the Endangered Species Act. I can get whipsawed by the dueling scientists, but I sure as shit know we are running out of wolves.

    Even a science dumbass like me can tell that much.

    Maddie, I love the outdoors as much as anyone. I try to spend quite a bit of time in it when the weather allows.

    HOWEVER, I also know that the reason California has rolling brown-outs every summer is because they haven't built a new power plant in 30 years. You know why that is? Two reasons....

    1. NIMBY. Not In My BackYard.
    2. The environmental wackos who feel that protecting every bird, frog, and toadstool is more important than the elderly people of California dropping like flies when their AC doesn't work in August.

    There needs to be a balance, and that is something that the EPA and the radical environmentalists have absolutely no interest in.

    My biggest problem with the EPA is there is no oversight. They just enact regulations without regard to the constitutional process. Only Congress is allowed to enact law.
    When a government bureaucracy has the power to deny a citizen's right to use his property, there should be recourse. I want debate and transparency before my rights are trampled to save a squirrel.
