    My personal favorite is the "If you like your health care plan you can keep it" rule on the second page.

    There is no excuse for coal fired power plants to continue sending mercury up the chimney other than it costs money to upgrade those plants.

    Thanks to Geroge Bush II's "clear Skys" laws the plants that ought to have already upgraded didn't have to do so.

    I hope our government finally find the balls to force these upgrades in pollition control.

    That's not going to cost any jobs.

    Hell it will probably create jobs!

    How will reducing the energy output of the national power grid create jobs? Will we hire people to walk around in circles in order to generate more power?

    1.UPPER EAST SIDE — Manhattan candy sellers had their Kinder eggs confiscated in raids by Consumer Product Safety Commission last week, DNAinfo has learned.
    The businesses, which sold the hollow milk chocolate eggs that contain a toy in a plastic capsule, were profiled by DNAinfo last week. The CPSC has banned the eggs, which are popular abroad and made by Italian manufacturer, Ferraro, because they are viewed as a choking hazard.
    At TriBeCa's gourmet Jin Market, the CPSC seized a box of Kinder eggs, which have labels saying for children three and up.
    "They said it's illegal," said Joseph Ramirez, who works at Jin Market. "They took it out of the store."

    "We always keep our trees trimmed back because you don't want to worry about them hanging down in the way," said Sales, a church member.
    The church was fined $100 per branch cut for excessive pruning, bringing the violation to $4,000.”
