8 Responses to Latest Bush outrage: Ease up controlling airborne lead

    You know one thing I see with the Bush Administration is a lack of personal responsibility and a lack of committment. I say if he believes that pollution rules should be lax and loosened, the new rules should be tried out first at a certain ranch in Texas. Drill for oil in the front yard and burn coal in the back. Try different chemicals in the drinking water, expecially arsenic, which he moved to allow in greater levels during his administration. Come on, stand behind what you say and do. However, even if he did stand behind it, I still wouldn’t want more pollution. Talk about a lack of morals—-I guess being “born again” doesn’t mean you serve God or your fellow man!

    they folks just don’t know how to walk their talk. And lest we forget this quote early in his reign…

    “…things’d be a whole lot easier if this were a dictatorship, as long as I’m the dictator, heh heh heh.”

    George W. Bush 2001.

    Did I miss the blog entry about Bush pardoning the guy who poisoned bald eagles?

  5. No frank,

    I read about it, but didn’t put it up . . . just too much shit!

    Thanks

    I am pretty sure he pardoned a few people who commited environmental crimes.

    Something about it just annoyed me. There are actually people out there defending it. I agree though, “too much shit.”

  8. avatar frank says:

    It is still annoying me. I just can’t get over it. A guy poisons 3 Bald Eagles, a Red-Tailed Hawk, a Great-Horned owl, and numerous other wildlife, and gets pardoned. He did no jail time. All he received was 2 years probation. It seems the only reason he wanted the pardon was so he could hunt again. With that much disrespect towards wildlife, he should not be allowed to hunt. Honestly, is that the best that he can do with the pardons. He pardoned a nobody, redneck that poisoned animals because he wanted to kill more turkeys.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
