When are they going to do something about all of the mercury in these damn “pigtail” lights we’re being forced into buying and then throwing away when they give up the ghost?

The EPA has turned into the 4th and probably the most powerful branch of our government.

They’ve been prepping the public for months through all of their surrogate groups. The radio, print and TV ads hyping the supposed danger of mercury and asthma have been relentless. Connect the Dots! It’s for the Chillrun!

All part of Obeyme’s agenda to destroy the coal industry. (How do ya like me now, UMWA?) He won’t be happy until we are like the Third World where the power is on for four hours at night and the hot water is shut off after April 15th.

Environmental and clean air groups note that the regulations will impose major public health benefits. EPA says the rules will prevent up 17,000 premature deaths, 11,000 heart attacks and 120,000 asthma attacks annually.

They love to invent numbers

Don’t those curly fries light bulbs have mercury in them? Maybe the EPA should set some lifetime limits on how many you can break before you face some serious jail time. Sounds good. That would eliminate all breakage. What’s not to like about that?

I’d like to “unveil” a box of pink slips on all of those hippies down at the EPA.

This is about Closing the Coal Fired Plants replacing them with?

And guess what, I spoke to my fireman gnome. He recently had classes on Solar Panel and Hybrid Car fires. Nasty nasty emissions when these happen.

Eons ago a greenie-weenie relative went on rant about Mercury and Coal Fire.

I did some digging for maps of the high concentrations of it. It made no sense, not down streams of powerplants via air or water in vallies etc.

Garbage Dumps or site of former old word manufacturing plants? Perhaps.

IMHO they are using the Mercury boogey man as a ploy for more power.

G_d help us that we are worthy to vote this guy out, I hope the man upstairs thinks we are worth saving or he is out to teach us a lesson...
