    Yet one more piece of Obama's legacy falls by the wayside. This will return power to the hands of the landowners.

    "The Trump administration is expected to complete on Thursday a new rule that rolls back parts of the 2015 clean water rule that expanded federal authority over the nation’s streams, rivers and wetlands...."

    "...The new rule would reduce the number of waterways the federal government can protect from pollution, as it seeks to appease industry groups and conservative lawmakers who criticized the regulations as a federal land grab that created uncertainty for industry and landowners.

    Opponents have also argued the 2015 rule encroached on private property rights and subjected small farmers to added government scrutiny and the risk of legal entanglements."

    speaking of bottle water on a Trump thread -

    he bought a bottle water company that was doing really good - then it went kaput - he changed the name and the only place it sold now is in his resorts .

    It was unconstitutional. I know you dont care about abuse of power but that's what it was. States already have protections.
    You fuckin retards were whining about the bears when trump gave regulatory power back to Alaska too.

    Clean water is obviously stupid. We can spend millions later on cleaning it up.

    You seem to be under the false impression that the rule somehow gave you clean water or ensured that your water would be cleaner.

    You are very naive.
