While President-elect Obama is busy putting together an administration, George W. Bush is on his way out, and you can almost hear a game show host directing his sidekick to "tell them what they won, Bob."
As parting gifts, President Bush is leaving us with his determination to deregulate everything he possibly can in his closing days in the White House. The Eagles once wrote a song called "The Last Resort" which prophetically laid out those policies which Bush is espousing: "Some rich men came and raped the land. Nobody caught 'em."
The White House is working to enact a wide array of federal regulations, many of which would weaken government rules aimed at protecting consumers and the environment, before President Bush leaves office in January.
The new rules would be among the most controversial deregulatory steps of the Bush era and could be difficult for his successor to undo. Some would ease or lift constraints on private industry, including power plants, mines and farms.
Those and other regulations would help clear obstacles to some commercial ocean-fishing activities, ease controls on emissions of pollutants that contribute to global warming, relax drinking-water standards and lift a key restriction on mountaintop coal mining.
Since the days of Ronald Reagan, the Republican party has worshipped at the altar of big business. Bush's only consideration in enacting these measures to deregulate anything and everything is the pursuit of the Almighty Dollar to pad the corporate bottom line. This is a blatant attempt to further line the pockets of corporate cronies at the expense of public safety.
Well I read in the Sunday AJC that already there are over 200 executive orders and directives that Obama will overturn the sec he takes office... ones on global warming, stem cell research, govt transparency, and other things GW did to damage our nation. I'm sure if anyone is caught torturing... it's the Russian Front !!
Here's what I'm waiting for --- the Reagan and Bush Presidential papers finally released. Time has expired !!
Do we know this to be true? This looks like a left winged sight putting up their versions of the truth to get across their agenda (like those right winged agenda folks).
VERY VERY Good Question! It's Good that we've had to learn THE HARD WAY to become cynical enough to Double Check EVERYTHING!
Like those lessons it took so long to press home about Dis-Information & Distractions & MisDirection
Anywho... That was my double check after hearing the same info from BILL MOYERS & again in a new segment of the Rachel Maddow Show that she's been calling "The LAME-DUCK Watch"
As she pointed out: It's an age-worn-trick to post things that "THEY" hope no one sees in the late edition of the FRIDAY Edition of the Newspapers, after everyone lets down their guard, and attends to their personal home life;
But working on that very same premise; The DOUCHE Administration has been counting On US to let down our guard, assuming that it's... "ALL OVER"
...then doubling back to continue the Rape & Pilage that will both assure Obama's Failure & The COMEBACK of the RE-THUGnican Party, so they can start all over again (Having the PALIN PARTY to look forward to... )
And the YouTUBE Links (as you see) are Quite Real... The difference: they HAD BEEN Pushing the Mountain Tops into the Valleys... Now G.DUB took away all recourse to get Court Orders to HALT IT Due to "Poisoning the Water Courses" by removing such REGULATIONS with the Stroke His ALMIGHTY SIGNING-STATEMENT-PEN.
I've got this vision of the Taliban and al Qaeda pestering the hell out of Bin Laden. So, Mr. Big Talker, where is George Bush? You promised to capture him months ago. So where is the infidel? And then *poof* Osama pulls of a January Surprise in a '97 EconoLine!
If it's a left-wing gag, then my very very middle of the road local newspaper bought into it. There's no doubt that Bush is trying to leave his mark, like my dogs do when they go for a walk.
Of course it would...
Pennsylvania (and much of the Scenic Appalachian Mountains) is among the States being turned into a "MOONSCAPE" by the Corporate FatCats who sold the nation on the IDEA of "cheap domestic energy sources" the cost of which is already becoming to costly to bear: "What does it profit a man to gain the world yet lose his soul?"
