They've screwed us again, the MFs
If you were wondering - No, there is no end to the crap this administration will pull to enrich the rich, and screw our health in the process. It took me a while to figure out how far ahead of me this administration was on this. It's not just the immediate gains from the clear cutting of pristine forests, but also the long term profits from having us pay to clean up the mess they make, and the money the for-profit medical industry will make from treating us for the ill health we will have from the poor environment we'll live in. It's a fucking win-win situation for the corporatists, and almost entirely at our (tax payers) expense.
Here's the part about working for the government that will really bother me - the suppression of the truth in support of someone else's profits, EPA STIFLES OBJECTIONS TO BUSH ROADLESS PLAN
Water Quality, Habitat and Other Concerns Cut from Comments to Forest Service
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has censored the warnings of its professional staff about a Bush Administration plan to build more roads across national forests, according to documents released today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). EPA deleted comments about a host of environmental problems, ranging from impaired public drinking water to spreading invasive plants, from comments it submitted to the U.S. Forest Service on November 26th.
“Things have gotten pretty extreme when the Environmental Protection Agency is no longer permitted to voice environmental concerns,” stated PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch. “’Never was heard a discouraging word’ is no longer just a lyric from Home on the Range; it is the new federal environmental mantra.”
