Philip Francis Queeg: HeadLever: Vegemite: Lando Lincoln: Ask people to point out these "job-killing regulations" and you'll get a "well...you KNOW they're out there..." kind of excuse.

They will probably spout off about EPA regulations and other such things,furthermore . . .

Since you asked:

This case was about a week after the EPA got biatchslapped by the US Supreme Court in the Sackett case. Right now, the courts are doing a good job at keeping the EPA somewhat in line.

Thank God the noble Job Creators who own coal mines will now have the freedom to dump toxic waste into our streams like the Founders so clearly intended. I myself am heartily sick of clean air and water being forced on the American people.

We need to get rid of the job-killing minimum wage. Imagine how many jobs there would be if they only paid 25¢ an hour.

Ok, start with eliminating the vice "regulations" (eg. those against gambling, drugs, prostitution), and we'll go from there. Yeah, thought so.

/oh, you want to abuse and rape the planet at will... Well, sorry, no.

HeadLever: Philip Francis Queeg: hank God the noble Job Creators who own coal mines will now have the freedom to dump toxic waste into our streams like the Founders so clearly intended.

They still don't have that right. This was a case of the mine having all the required permits and the EPA overstepping their bounds to arbitrarily veto the project.

From a Democratic Senator, "The issue with the Spruce Mine permit has always been basic fairness," he said. "The company received a permit five years ago from the Corps. The EPA participated in that process on the front end but then tried to step in again after the permit was issued and veto it retroactively."


Thank God we were saved from the tyranny of not having toxic waste dumped in streams. Where does the EPA get the notion that it should be protecting the environment? They should be thinking of nothing but what is best for the Blessed Job Creators.

With out knowing the facts of the case other then the EPA wanted to and some politicians opposed it you can't say they did not have the right. The question is was there something wrong with the permits? New facts that came to light? Or did the EPA feel that the Bush administration put undue pressure on them to approve. Why exactly did the EPA feel the need to try and revoke these permits?

What I don't understand is why all of these media outlets provide a platform for people with no original ideas. If you're just going to have someone come on the show to spout the party line, why even bother with booking a guest? You could just show video of the last hundred "right wing counterbalance" guys who you had on the network.

It's always refreshing to know teabaggers will never remember what transpired a mere 4 years ago when deregulation almost destroyed the financial industry, deregulation almost destroyed the entire gulf coast and deregulation is currently allowing democracy to be determined by less than 50 people.

I can kinda see the argument that the EPA can't revoke a duly issued permit (the article also mentions that the EPA was involved in the original permit; why didn't they reject it then? A more suspicious person than I might note the occupant of the White House when the permit was first issued five years ago). We should wonder why Army Corps of Engineers issued the permit in the first place, and why the Corps has the power to issue such permits.

BillCo: That is because we have a job killing president.


So we currently have a job killing president under whose watch the net number of jobs increased. The previous president had zero net new jobs, and he was really big with the "job creators."

So, basically, black is white? So to speak.

I would actually argue the lack of regulation (i.e., free trade agreements which force American workers to compete on wages against Chinese and Mexican quasi-slave labor) has had more of a job-killing effect than any other "regulation", many of the most draconian of which have actually disappeared in the last 30 years.

Did you know that the Maytag family not only created some awesome appliances, but they also are responsible for the awesomeness that is Maytag Blue Cheese?
And, as a bonus, Fritz Maytag left the family business and was probably responsible for the revival of the American craft brewing movement when he bought a small West Coast brewery and created Anchor Brewing.

This is now a cheese and beer thread.

It is always refreshing to see that liberals don't get the difference between regulations and job killing regulations.

Can you not grasp the concept that not all regulations are good?
0bama can. He commented about spilt milk regulations and something about salmon.

It seems that the partisan liberals have a very limited response:
- GOP doesn't like job killing regulations.
- That means they hate all regulations
- That means they want people to die from eating lead paint.

I know it is fark, and that is what one should expect here. I assume most of the people here are trolling, but I expect some actually believe the above.

That graph shows the number of jobs being roughly flat since 2000. It does not show anything about regulations, but you seem to have drawn a conclusion about regulations from it. Are you trying to say that the lack of jobs implies a surplus of regulations?
 
2012-04-26 10:21:52 AM

WhyteRaven74: For mass produced goods labor costs aren't even the largest costs to begin with, and how much they're actually saving is often rather dubious.


Well I would think it's pretty obvious that the COGS is the biggest line item on an income statement, but when 90% of that is tied up in direct materials, your only other place to cut variable cost is labor. So your choices are to use cheaper materials or cheaper workers if you want to compete with Chinese-made mass produced goods. Most American companies that have moved operations decided that they couldn't win on either front so instead just mimicked what the Chinese are already doing.

And that doesn't even get into the slave-like labor environments over there or the seemingly endless subsidies from the Chinese government to get their companies to compete.

numbone: Not that he has done anything to curb it but over-regulation didn't start with Obama.


Why do you even assume over-regulation caused job loss? The 1990s were marked by rampant deregulation, and your trend dies in 2000, so if anything, the chart implies quite the opposite.
