Article I, section 1, of the U.S. Constitution stipulates, All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in the Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
Cato Institute: "Forcing Congress to vote on each and every administrative regulation that establishes a rule of private conduct would prove the most revolutionary change in government since the Civil War not because the idea is particularly radical, but because we are today a nation governed, not by elected officials, but by unelected bureaucrats."

Barbour has signed some questionable legislation into law since being governor of Mississippi. Absolutely without a doubt, legislation that strips citizens of their Habeas Corpus Rights, a Right to a fair hearing, other laws he has approved and signed into law that will now have to go to the Federal Courts to be struck down.
So NO, I do “NOT” trust his judgment on anything.

The Greens, as exemplified by the EPA, are one of the two most dangerous fuehrers of the commu...er, uh democrat party today and will implement Stalinist controls over the population everytime they are allowed to do so. The unions, the enablers of things like ACORN, are the storm troopers of the movement. They will apply the green boot to your neck. Destroy private property rights, and you destroy the middle class.
Kudos to anyone who works to reign in the environmental stalinists.

The Utah legislature passed a similar piece of legislation not too long ago.

Since when is the EPA, a governmental agency who works for the people of the United Sates dictating policy. When zero is neutered in November we need to smack down the EPA!

Ignore the EPA fascists and fire them. Unelected bureaucrats can no more write law than obuma can give his war-making power to Bill Ayers. Only congress may write law. Unaccountable bureaucrats writing law is one of the primary traits of a dictatorship.
