    Jeff Schweitzer: Warning: Drinking Tea Party Rhetoric May Cause Cancer

    And one wonders just why anybody believes anything the GOP has to say anymore. Talk about some nasty agendas.

    I tried to read that... All I could get was 'blah, blah, blah.' Oh well. I'm sure I didn't miss anything of interest... considering that BrainDeadBoop is only marginally more intelligent than TruthDon'tMatter.

    CG, that is just the attitude that the OWS movement needs you to take. Thank you, from myself and the rest. You have defined the enemy of our children wonderfully. Our children are negatively affected by breathing mercury and lead? "Can't hear you, the rustling of the bucks of big energy is too loud".

    MY GAWD, the FEARMONGERING out of the left is becoming more INSANE and idiotic with each passing day.

    Biden says if we don't pass this so called jobs bill, more people will be robbed and raped.

    that must be that NEW TONE they were all crying about..

    and of course the op buys into it hook, line and STINKER:lol:

    The future the Teabaggers and GOP wish for us and our children. This has already happened, so we know that they would do it again. Dirty, damned regulations that keep businesses from operating any way that they wish to.
    Donora Killer Smog Noted at 50

    In house after house, Bill Schempp placed the mask over the faces of neighbors who were wheezing and gasping for air. He'd give them a little oxygen from the tank, then stop.
    They'd start to wheeze again, and the firefighter would give them a bit more. But eventually, it was time to move to the next home in Donora, Washington County, to relieve, at least temporarily, the labored breathing of those worst affected by the air pollution that enveloped the town.

    "I'm dying, and you're taking my air from me," Schempp, now 81, recalls being told.

    Fifty years ago this week, a killer smog created by unchecked industrial emissions and stagnant air conditions filled the then-thriving mill town in the Mon Valley.

    Newspapers reported that 21 people died over two days as a direct result of the smog, and more than a third of the town's population, or about 6,000 people, became ill or were hospitalized.

    Now Del, if you have read anything that I stated previously about Nixon, you would know my opinion of him.

    Nixon could have been remembered as one of the great Presidents, had he controled his paranoia. He opened up China, and his environmental policies were groundbreaking. He was a pragmatic politician that, had he allowed that part of his persona, to be primary, would be remembered far differantly than he is today.

    For those thinking posters who actually read this rather than parroted, the ONLY bill related to emissions from coal plants during the 112th, was a bill in a continuing resolution/appropriations.

    The GOP naturally voted against that because they wanted a fucking budget from the administration and the Dems.

    But, it passed.

    What a crock of shit that the OP believed at face value and parroted.






    Polly want a cracker?

    Moron.
