So far all I've turned up is:<br>http://www.bibdaily.com/<br>Then: select date in question<br>In this case: April 3rd, 2008<br><br><h2>Environmental Laws to Be Waived for Fence</h2><br><br>National Guardsmen weld a section of wall being erected along the international border that separates San Luis, Mexico, and San Luis, Ariz.<br><br>Lawmaker Accuses Administration of Abusing Authority to Build Barrier at Mexican Border<br><br>The Bush administration will waive more than 30 environmental and land-management laws in order to finish building 470 miles of border fence in the Southwest by the end of the year, officials said yesterday.<br><br>The move, permitted under an exemption granted by Congress, will be the most sweeping use of the administration's waiver authority since it started building the fence to curb illegal immigration. It will affect environmentally sensitive areas in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.<br><br>However, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, said the administration has exceeded what Congress intended when it granted the department added flexibility under the Real ID Act. "Today's waiver represents an extreme abuse of authority," he said in a statement. "Waiver authority should only be used as a last resort, not simply because the Department has failed to get the job done through the normal process. It was meant to be an exception, not the rule."<br><br>James L. Connaughton, who chairs the White House Council on Environmental Quality, said his aides have been working with the Department of Homeland Security to assess the environmental impact of the fence construction even if it does not meet the strict requirements of the law.<br><br>* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * <br><br><h2>Environmental rules waived for Mexican border fence</h2><br><br><br>WASHINGTON -- In an aggressive move to finish 670 miles of barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border by the end of the year, the Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday announced plans to waive federal and state environmental laws.<br><br>The two waivers, which were approved by Congress, will allow Homeland Security to slash through a thicket of more than 30 environmental and cultural laws to speed construction.<br><br>"The Bush administration's latest waiver of environmental and other federal laws threatens the livelihoods and ecology of the entire U.S.-Mexico border region," said Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope. "Secretary Chertoff chose to bypass stakeholders and push through this unpopular project on April Fool's Day. We don't think the destruction of the borderlands region is a laughing matter."<br><br>Critics, however, say the department's environmental assessments have been rushed efforts that present a distorted and incomplete picture.<br><br>"It's surprising how cursory their reviews have been," said Kim Delfino, director of the California branch of Defenders of Wildlife. "There's a lot of boilerplate and analysis shifted from one document to another. It's kind of like they were going through the motions."<br><br><br><br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green> [color:green]. . . _ _ _ . . .</font color=green><br>
It's not a "story." It's two pages from the Federal Register.<br><br><br>http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fedreg/a080403c.html<br><br>PDF<br><br><br>You just don't know how tempting it was to tell you to find it yourself, you know, the way you tell people you don't like when they ask about your "stories."<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it.

_________________________ I always deserve it. Really.
<br>I did find it myself<br>and I don't recall telling anyone to "find it themselves"<br><br>but my point in asking was not one of doubt or disbelief<br>s much as I felt the topic was so important as to (in mojo's words)<br>transcend party politics. I genuinely want to see the the entire PDF<br>& archive it, since it may be of monumental importance to our future.<br><br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green> [color:green]. . . _ _ _ . . .</font color=green><br>

At least some of that we did steal fair and square, no?<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

We did buy some of it, maybe at first from folks who didn't know you could own land, but eventually from more sophistical types.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

My concern is less that we're building a wall to keep <br>others out, than they're building a wall to keep us in.<br><br>Another part of that package is the REAL ID that has now<br>been enacted, ...that people swore would never happen,<br>just like the WALL which Lea said would never happen.<br><br>It still seems to me that we're placidly accepting the <br>bonds that once shackled the people of the former USSR.<br><br>A good analogy is Gore's frog in a pot of boiling water:<br>the Boiling Frog Syndrome: <br>if you put a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will leap <br>out right away to escape the danger. However, if you put <br>that same frog into a kettle that is filled with water that <br>is mild and pleasant, and then you gradually increase the <br>heat in the kettle until it starts boiling, the frog will not <br>become aware of the threat until it is too late. <br>(voila: frog fricassee).<br><br>[color:white]. . . </font color=white><br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green> [color:green]. . . _ _ _ . . .</font color=green><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Celandine on 04/04/08 10:24 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
