...Whitehouse was elected as state attorney general. He initiated a lawsuit against the lead paint industry that ended in a mistrial; the state later won a second lawsuit against former lead paint manufacturers Sherwin Williams Co., Millennium Holdings, and NL Industries that found them responsible for creating a public nuisance.[4] This decision, however, was unanimously overturned by the Rhode Island Supreme Court on July 1, 2008. The Court found that under Rhode Island law it is the responsibility of property owners to abate and mitigate lead hazards. Whitehouse also founded the Rhode Island Quality Institute, "an organization dedicated to improving health care quality in the State of Rhode Island...

Senator has no idea how big the world is, and he must be an atheist to think that we have any control over it at all.

His world is the size of his own tiny mind.

And “bogus?” Really, Senator? “Bogus?” Did you just graduate from high school?

It's a law, essentially, of science.

Eloquently put, senator.

That's rich, especially when considered together with a story (perhaps urban legend, it's hard to believe anyone is this ignorant, even a liberal) about a meeting between some kind of industry leaders and Obama staffers right after the inauguration. According to the story the industry guys told the Obama guys that what they wanted to do was impossible because it would violate the laws of physics -- and the Obama guys look at each other and make a note to work on getting those laws changed!

So laws of science that work to advance the power of collectivist liberals are immutable; all others are subject to change!

"Too bad ignorance isn’t painful."

It used to be. If you were a bad farmer your family wouldn't do very well. Today we reward ignorance.

Cut them some slack, they’re only repeating what their Ive League professors told them.

Only idiots like you and me do not understand that more borrowing and more spending are the only solutions to a borrowing and spending problem.
