Job Creators are the people like you and me who buy things.
not the people who either sit on their money or invest it overseas.

I'd rather have "job killing regulations" than people killing pollution, lead in my paint and melamine in my food.

To me, what's amazing about Luntz on Fox News is that they are basically telling the viewers "This is how we are misleading you and bending you to our agenda," yet the idiots still allow themselves to be willfully misled.

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



I love that the EPA was founded in 1970 and did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to affect the trajectory of the graph.

It's almost as if regulation to minimize externalities have a minimal impact on the economy while vastly improving quality of life.

Let us look to the current paragons of unregulated capitalism:

This is where the GOP and their corporate backers want to take America. Will you sell out your country for promises of trickle down?

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.

tenpoundsofcheese: and what was the percentage increase in the use of "Hope and Change" during that same period?


Hey, remember back in 2000 when Bush was elected and us liberals bashed him for that stupid "Real plans for real people" slogan throughout his entire term?

No?

Maybe because we're not idiots, and there was a cornucopia of substantive criticisms to make about his administration.

Aside from a very few exceptions, American media is pro corporate first and foremost and thus bent towards conservative ideology.

The notion of a liberal media is laughable.

Understandably a lot of people get confused by the addition of FOX News to the news landscape which is literally the propaganda arm of the GOP and not actual news per se.

Every time an EPA haters' kid gets leukemia from toxic industrial runoff, an angel gets its wings.

Thats a lot of hate from the party of tolerance.

/Assuming youre on the left.

Another stock phrase from the teabagger/freeper glossary.

Ohh, lol, for some reason I thought the left propagated that term and it always confused me since I dont see the left anymore tolerant of different opinions than the right. My mistake, hate away my friend.


Tolerance means not legislating hate against minorities and gays, not agreeing with your every dumbass opinion.

You're a dumbass, not a victim of oppression.

WhyteRaven74: However, if you haven't noticed companies haven't exactly been cutting prices as they've moved to using cheaper labor.



Apple posted a gross profit margin on 44.1%, with the bulk of their revenue coming from their iPhone line, which has a unit labor cost of less than 3% of its retail price.

Labor cost is not a factor in the iPhone's price, at all. They could multiply the wages by a factor of 10 and they would still pull a bigger profit ratio from their phones then oil companies do from their products.

tenpoundsofcheese: 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.


Republicans think protecting children from lead poisoning is "job killing"(pops)

This is too easy.

HeadLever: Philip Francis Queeg: Thank God we were saved from the tyranny of not having toxic waste dumped in streams.

Again, there is no indication that this was an issue at all. Nice try at a deflection, though.


Yes, there is

Mingo Logan, the petitioner in the case, obtained various permits from West Virginia for its mountaintop mining operations (including an NPDES permit that EPA initially opposed). It also applied to the Corps of Engineers for a Clean Water Act (CWA) section 404 permit to discharge material from its mine into nearby streams. EPA expressed concern over this permit and the accompanying EIS, but it didn't exercise its veto authority and the permit was eventually issued in 2007.

Two years later, EPA requested that the Corps withdraw the permit, stating that downstream water quality impacts hadn't been adequately addressed. The Corps rejected that request, and in 2010, EPA announced its plans to withdraw the specification of most of the streams comprising Mingo Logan's discharge area. The withdrawal became final in 2011, and Mingo Logan sued.

Burial of Pigeonroost Branch and Oldhouse Branch and their tributaries will also result in unacceptable adverse effects on wildlife downstream through the transformation of the buried areas into sources of pollution that will contribute contaminants to downstream waters and the removal of functions performed by the buried streams. Based on recent peer-reviewed literature, as well as available data from adjacent mine sites and from the active portion of the Spruce No. 1 Surface Mine, EPA has concluded that the full construction of the Spruce No. 1 Surface Mine will transform these headwater streams
from high quality habitat into sources of pollutants (particularly total dissolved solids and selenium) that will travel downstream and adversely impact the wildlife communities that utilize these downstream waters. Increased pollutant levels will lead to loss of macroinvertebrate communities and population shifts to more pollution-tolerant taxa, specifically the extirpation of ecologically important macroinvertebrates. Through the loss of stream macroinvertebrate communities, there will be, in turn, substantial effects on fish, amphibian, and bird populations that rely on these communities as a food source.

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.

Meh they are just West Virginian rock eating hill billies, it is not like they drink water anyway. It is not even like their children would ever amount to much anyway, that much retardation is always going to be a drain on the economy and health care system.

I actually kinda think it's the other way around; the GOP is the political arm of FOX News, since FOX can create or destroy any Republican politician any time they want.
