Open the link, read the article, look at the pictures. This is the future that anti-government Republican "conservatives" want for America. Next time Rand Paul or a member of the clownish mob which is the GOP stands up to whine about too many federal regulations hampering businesses, their ultimate objective is to make sure 6000 stinking, disease-ridden dead pigs end up clogging your local river & contaminating your water supply..

Agreed.

I live in China and Canada now (about 70/30% mix in time)
China is heading the OTHER way (more and more regulation being added over time, more heads rolling for environmental abuse) but there is a long way to go and many hard choices ahead.
USA (corporate USA, some call that Republican, frankly I dont see it as a partisan issue its a corporate issue that exists on both sides) and their deregulation will eventually arrive at the same levels of pollution and civil abuse that many condemn about China.

China is full of western money now so they are improving - coming from the bottom
USA is full of eastern croneyism now so they are declining - coming from the top to the bottom

Quite sad to see really.

EVERYONE has potential to be better. One day we will all learn from each other's mistakes and stop copying them. One day.

THIS!

This sort of thing is EXACTLY what happens in a neocon paradise, where business is unregulated (but don't worry, they'll be happy to regulate your sex life.)
