    *They ... (Progressives) (Liberals) (Socialists) are working feverishly on all fronts attacking America.
     
  5. Obama's EPA is being blamed for the Clean Air Act of 1990?

    Cool.

    meanwhile lead smelters in other countries will be working extra to fill the void.

    Do some research on this story.

    It only affects their air?
     
  8. I suspect they weren't hip on upgrading to be compliant because countries like China will happily smelt lead, refine steel, whatever and dump all the leftover crap in the nearest river.

    But it's all Obama's fault.

    **It is his fault...and his wacho Implants

    "President Obama "filled in more pieces" of his second term leadership team yesterday, nominating a trio of new advisers to lead the Energy Department, Environmental "

    "Two of Obama’s new nominees will also focus on another second term priority – tackling the threat of "climate change". To head that effort, Obama promoted current EPA official Gina McCarthy to lead the agency and MIT scientist Ernest Moniz to run the Energy Department."

    So, where will the Army and DHS get lead for their bullets?

  13. Is English your second language? Because if it is I won't point out your horrid grammar and sentence structure.

    That and the fact that you don't seem to make a lick of sense.

    Are you having a problem with his choices of people to run the agencies?

    Maybe you just need to take a nice relaxing dump. :wavey:

    Lead is nasty stuff. If you lived near one of the smelting plants you would be talking differently.

    It is not just lead refineries, it is any plant with the ability to cast anything. If you pour molten anything into forms, you have been put out of business, or about to be, because of excessive regulations.

    As a country, our ability to build things, is being systematically taken away.

    You cannot protect yourself as a country, if all the foundries have been dismantled. Checkmate.
