The reforms, which the EPA says affect less than one percent of all waste tracked by the TRI nationwide, are aimed at offering polluters "burden relief" by reducing the time and money devoted to complying with environmental regulations.


Somehow, hiding thousands of pounds of things like benzene and toluene doesn't seem to be a good idea to me. But then, I don't have the 'burden' polluters have of finding a place to put these things.

The best government money can buy...

I like the way you put that, Dori. I am sure whenever they came up with the term "burden relief" they expected it to sound like it was actually providing something good. I am so sick and tired of companies gettting away with things that no human would be allowed. I'd like to see how friendly the EPA would be to me if I started dumping this shit in the stream near my house.

Another sad thing is that until I've gotten more wise (yes, I agree I am not very wise, but more so now than before), I actually thought the EPA was a good thing. I didn't realize what a joke it was. Its so sad to slowly watch everything you once believed in crumble to reveal what they really are.

I believe the EPA started out to be a good thing. Like so many other things, when you install the wrong persons into places of authority, a good thing turns into a really bad joke.

Ronnie Ray-Gun started this idea of putting people who hate whatever they are charged with protecting into the top spots. Bush Inc. just enlarged on his idea and has installed the worst people possible into high positioned jobs so they can destroy whatever they are supposed to protect.

So many reasons to love this guy...
