Skip to comments.First they came for your light bulbs. Now Obama’s EPA is going after your soap.

You cant blame Americans for feeling as though the government is increasingly crossing boundaries and reaching into their daily lives. The Obama administration and regulatory authorities such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) appear to be coming at us on all fronts.
The Republican-led Congress has been steadfast in its efforts to beat back the EPA. Recent committee hearings have exposed the adverse consequences that the EPAs regulation of greenhouse gas emissions will have on the job market. Unfortunately for hardworking Americans, the cost of the EPAs action will make energy prices higher, drive jobs overseas and force more citizens into the unemployment line. Under the Obama administration, the EPA has been transformed into a job-killing machine.
The EPA is donning a new title, as well nanny state behemoth. While many are aware of the fight against cap and trade and the EPAs regulation of greenhouse gas emissions, the totality of their smaller actions, which often go unnoticed, is starting to add up. They already tell us what kinds of light bulbs we can use and how much water we are allowed to have in our toilets. Now, they have their sights set on our soap.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Obama administration: The world’s longest lasting “April” Fool’s joke.
If you dig deeper into this mes, you will see the hand of PETM (people for the ethical treatment of microbes)
Eddie Mahkey, the marginal moron of Meffa strikes again. He doesn’t even own a home in MA and hasn’t ever but these idiots keep voting for him.
I bought a big box of Trisodium Phosphate because of these eco-nazis and plan on buying more soon.
Along with my lightbulb hoarding do i need to start collecting soap as well?
Perhaps because it is?
Seems like the commerce laws should come into
In order to get business, a company lobbies,
smooges, extorts and bribes Congress to pass
corrupt legislation that forces us to purchase
a product we don’t necessarily need or want;
a product / company / private citizen,
interfering with their ability and right to work,
produce and prosper.
I know, I'm starting to run out of room for the light bulbs alone.
On the other hand, this might boost storage shed sales into the stratosphere.
They already messed with detergents by taking the phosphates out.
Now, a dishwasher doesn’t wash since the ‘energy star’ pump motor is about the size of a golf ball and the phosphate is gone.
Mrs. RWA and I just put a bit of phosphate back in with each load, which seems to help. This will work until they ban it.
I hear they’re working on a way to make sure refrigerators aren’t able to cool things.
Your dishwasher's not getting the dishes clean - your toilet won't flush, new light bulbs give you a headaches, the french fries you eat taste like cardboard? Thank a liberal.
It's all real - liberal elites want YOU under their control...
Not to mention what a disaster this would be for people who are forced to use public transportation.
False. It kills bacteria, not viruses. Anyway, since I found out that anti-bacterial soap was developed for the home market of people with AIDS, since they have degraded immune systems and can't fight off bacteria like healthy people can, I stopped using it.
Soap, hah, that is pase...
I clean my hands with hydrocloric Acid.
I just vomit it up and then rinse my hands, been a lot easier since Nov 2008 to do this.
I think I may need to start rendering down liberals for soap...
Seriously though... without light bulbs , soap and toilet paper, we will be like the majority of the muslim world. Its all part of Obamas masterplan.... level the playing field.
Within an hour he will outlaw the traditional right hand handshake as it is “crusader and unsanitary”
The problem is not the soap, but the anti-bacterial agent, triclosan. Studies have shown triclosan can interfere with the body’s thyroid hormone metabolism and health groups have requested the EPA to stop its widespread use. The difficulty isn’t the one time you wash your hands, but the inadvertent high doses people are receiving because it is in so many products. This is especially a concern for children in public schools where the administration mandates the use of hand sanitizers, wet wipes, and anti-bacteria soaps.
"Fools" are the ones who voted for the userper Kenyan who would be King and his commie minions from Hell: Pelosi and Reid. The gift that keeps on giving, and the Hades Evil Triad has been a very bad joke for America. I hope we survive.
My new dishwasher seems to get the job done without Phosphates.
Of course it runs about 45 minutes longer than my old dishwasher, hot water and all.
I put a teaspoon of Savogran TSP in it and set it at it’s lowest cycle just to help out a bit with my electic bill.
I heard they are pulling yet another Freon stunt.
Soon we will all have to buy yet newer air conditioners with serious high pressure plumbing to make the even crappier substitute work within it in order to cool ourselves down soon.
***Now, they have their sights set on our soap.***
As long as I can get lye and lard I am OK.
Ban lye and I will use wood ashes.
Ban lard and I will raise and KILL my own pigs.
Stock up on incadesent bulbs, and buy and install a toilet from Mexico.
Hand sanitizer? Use rubbing alcohol.
Triclosan is in lots of products. Just check your toothpaste.
Ha, Ha...we make our own soap, have for several years...’grandma’s lye soap’...use it in the laundry, and for bathing...we use TSP in the laundry as well to improve the cleaning. And we use hydrogen peroxide for sanitation (not the drugstore 3% variety, btw).
Good point. We need to make a list of all things we can
‘thank a liberal’ for...
When liberals get all of us down to 'one square of toilet paper' if might be necessary...
Might not need lye - liberals are so full of lies it would be overkill.
Where does one come by Trisodium Phosphate?
They’re going to have to pay for, deliver, and pay for the power for the “new” AC. We cannot afford another appliance. Who’s idea is this, GE’s?
1.2 pds @ $10.80 (dispense by teaspoon)
True that. They had some school children become very ill because they were licking the anti-bacterial soaps off their hands. The soap smelled good and these were little children.
“Where does one come by Trisodium Phosphate?”
Savogran, a company right up the street where my mom used to work makes some.
It’s called TSP.
They sell it at Home Depot.
Buy the red box, Don’t buy the green box, it’s fake TSP.
We used it to clean some tile grout last week and it worked amazing.
Actually the stuff has like a thousand cleaning soulutions.
Have a fridge in the garage that was getting moldy, TSP cleaned it like nothing recently.
it’s good for floors and dishwasher,laundry etc.
From what i gathered back a few years ago Dupont itself lobbied congress to ban their own freon because their patent was about to run out??
Now we got the newer less efficient stuff and they are getting ready to do it again.
I really do not have all the details.
It’s not a joke, and don’t call me shirley.
TSP, is also is used to clean walls to “prime” them before painting. Especially if semi-gloss paint has been used prior, or you want to paint over paneling.
Home Depot, paint aisle.
Thanks for the information ;}
I’m getting ready to paint our kitchen and there is quite the greese stain on the ceiling above the stove.
the ceiling has that rough texture.
I’m wondering how to get rid of it without destroying the ceiling.
I’m thinking even the TSP won’t solve this problem.
White vinegar. Try it full-strength. White vinegar is the wonder cleaner.
thanks, i’ll try that.
The kitchen isn’t filthy or anything it’s like a 1 foot grease stain above the vent thing.
Watch out for “phosphate free” TSP...
It’s kinda like “fat free half & half”.
