Olbermann just talked about that last second bullshit that Bush is pushing through....Before January.... Gonna be so much to do already. Bah.
What Bush is doing is very far reaching, and although every president who is leaving office does it, Bush will take it to a new low.
White House spokesman Tony Fratto said: "This administration has taken extraordinary measures to avoid rushing regulations at the end of the term. And yes, we'd prefer our regulations stand for a very long time -- they're well reasoned and are being considered with the best interests of the nation in mind."
Up is down, and down is still up in Conservatwit land. There are sweeping changes being made to regulations that protect consumers and the environment. The Scorched earth policy of George Bush, will continue for many years to come.
Two other rules nearing completion would ease limits on pollution from power plants, a major energy industry goal for the past eight years that is strenuously opposed by Democratic lawmakers and environmental groups.
One rule, being pursued over some opposition within the Environmental Protection Agency, would allow current emissions at a power plant to match the highest levels produced by that plant, overturning a rule that more strictly limits such emission increases. According to the EPA's estimate, it would allow millions of tons of additional carbon dioxide into the atmosphere annually, worsening global warming.
A related regulation would ease limits on emissions from coal-fired power plants near national parks.
A third rule would allow increased emissions from oil refineries, chemical factories and other industrial plants with complex manufacturing operations.
Much of this deregulation will take YEARS to repair, and in the meanwhile.....Steve is rushing to meet with Obama, papers in hand, so that the North Star Republican franchise can continue the rape of the land and the people of Canada.
There is no doubt that these people are just fucking evil. CAN THEY RAPTURE NOW and get it fucking over with? These Death cultists, whose numbers include Bush and Harper are really pissing me off.
