    If a chemical is banned here it should not be allowed to be sent to another country.

    king of the jungle, hehe. you all grew up learning this?

    i hope not.

    but I answer because i concur with your statement

    If a chemical is banned here it should not be allowed to be sent to another country.


    but how would you stop corporations from making a profit?

    Should we let companies run rampant just killing off what ever they want in order to make a profit? Do those companies have the right to destroy the world in order to fill their own pocket books? Truly let's have some common sense here because some corporates surely do not!

    Who says we cannot regulate using some common sense?

    It is damn obvious we need to regulate banks and other corporate shenanigans.

    Did it ever occur to you that this mess with the banks was due to the regulations? Believe me, they are regulated, a LOT.

    Believe me I now what most of these big banks represent and I can assure you it is not a good thing. One of these days I'll put the erroneous documents and the bankers testimony online. When a bank can blow off $680,000.00 dollars and make the US government pay for 85% of it by extorting people we have a real problem... Not that many banker apologist would fully understand that though. When banks can steal through altered and forged documents KK we all pay that price, not just the few of us that went through that experience and denied them that opportunity without putting up the best fight we could.

    The flaw is thinking that they are not regulated, they are heavily regulated and by utilizing the regulations they have been able to do this, so through cause and effect, regulation has done nothing but make it easier for corporations and banks to do more harm.
