While you were watching the war .... His Fraudulency and minions seem to be engaged in a wonderfully corporatist attack on rules and regulations controlling polluters. Which, if you look at the shape Texas is currently in -- most polluted state in the union for the severalth year running -- is no particular surprise. And if it weren't for the war, more of us might actually have noticed this particular full-court press.
It is amazing how many things the government is doing can be somehow justified on the basis that it's a response to terrorism, isn't it? I will admit that I'm utterly and completely baffled as to how one would justify allowing mines to pollute even more than they do can be justified as a response to terrorism, but I'm sure the Shrubbery's mouthpiece can enlighten us all at some later date.
