The coal industry will continue to decline, even according to the coal unions.
What to, vic
Disagree with environmental rape?
Or agree with your pointing out?
This destruction of the streams that provide drinking water to small rural communities, are the very districts that were to prosper under trump.
The coal companies will prosper. As well as other industries, with the elimination of the clean water act.
Disagree is good. I also disagree. Seems that the promised coal jobs evaporated as soon as the dumping regulations were lifted. Now they can use machines to extract the coal from the mines and don't need human miners at all. Sad.
Not that coal is desirable anyways. They are selling it to underdeveloped nations.
It was always an empty promise.
An excuse to enable and enrich a dying but still very powerful industry.
Once again the left is exaggerating and over dramatizing, not to mention mis-informing.
Trumps target in this matter is the over reaching crap that Obama did in his term as president. He and his minions in the EPA claimed that virtually every drop of water came under the jurisdiction of the federal government and owners of the property on which that water ran or stood were now under the jack boot rule of the EPA. It's not ridiculous to claim that puddles on your driveway and run off from your lawn are targets.
The contentious rule had been fought for years by farmers, ranchers, real estate developers and other industries, which complained it invited heavy-handed bureaucrats to burden their businesses with onerous restrictions and fines for minor violations.
“It is such a horrible, horrible rule,” Trump said as he signed the directive Tuesday aimed at the water rules. “It has such a nice name, but everything about it is bad.” He declared the rule, championed by environmental groups to give the EPA broad authority over nearly two-thirds of the water bodies in the nation, “one of the worst examples of federal regulation” and “a massive power grab.”
“The executive order has no legal significance at all,” said Richard L. Revesz, a professor of environmental law at New York University. “It’s like the president calling Scott Pruitt and telling him to start the legal proceedings. It does the same thing as a phone call or a tweet. It just signals that the president wants it to happen.”
Still, Mr. Pruitt, who was confirmed by the Senate to his new position this month, is expected to enthusiastically dive in to the lengthy task of undoing major environmental rules on clean water, climate change and air pollution.
Sorry to cloud the issue with facts - I know that the left prefers splashing around in emotion instead.
Not even worth a response. Eat it up, bud.
Hope you don't have grandkids
Not worth a response - and yet you did!
I have four grandchildren. And, if the left doesn't take their rights and property away from them - they will be fine.
That was a blurb
You know i am much more long winded than that
Sure - power grabs suck
Like the Feds telling states what to do with their marijuana
Feds telling cities what to do with their immigrants
Power grabs are suddenly OK when they are about causes you support
Despite what cities and state have decided on their own, marijuana has long been illegal. Get the law changed first Vic.
If cities and states decide to ignore immigration law, they don't get federal money. What's your problem? You don't accept the rule of law either?
I actually put the needs of the people above the wankings of foolish nearsighted politicians.
I am glad that our founding father didn't blindly follow the laws of King George.
We're a nation of laws - not of men.
You don't like the law? Get it changed.
We are a nation of people, of the people, by the people and for the people.
You make me want to stand and salute!
Great drama Vic! It comes across like you actually give a shit!
