    Yep. But guess who gets damned for putting down any regulations that the chemical companies swear on a stack of Bibles are safe.

    An oversimplified, partisan viewpoint that omits any other reasons that don't suit your agenda.

    The city government here has been Democrat since time began and they're Water Nazi's from hell and don't mind one bit what goes into the ground as long they can call it "progress" and it makes them money.

    You mean to say that political monkeys get put down? They should be put down. These regulations aren't in the best interest of the people, they are clearly in the interest of political hacks and their useful idiots. Get a clue. sorry Gunny, I just couldn't stay away.

    Possible future:

    Privatize water to make sure the 'right' people still get access... for a fee.

    Another possible future: Morons have a say in a field they have no expertise in. Just shut the hell up and go have your little beer party with old rocks.
