    Re: "I hope the EPA continues its efforts . . . ."

    What do liberals and tree huggers have against Navajo workers?

    Would they make the same sweeping demands for economic and social ruin if the miners and power plant workers were Scandinavian or Anglo-Saxon?

    Probably, but it's fun to turn the the liberal race-baiting tables on them, anyway.

    But, what's absolutely clear is that liberals and tree huggers care nothing for the little guy, the one that'll be thrown out of work by their deranged, hypocritical, and completely unnecessary regulation of an activity they gladly accept the benefits of.

    And, about 80% of those little guys being shoved around by Big Liberalism ARE, indeed, Navajo.

    How about this.

    I will vote against all regulations when C level employees can receive jail time when they break laws.

    Instead, the corporation gets fined and the CEO gets a bonus. Only the stockholders get real punishment.

    If they were really concerned about visibility in the Grand Canyon they would outlaw driving cars in LA. Prevailing winds are from the West, so shutting down a power plant in NE Arizona will improve visibility in Colorado and New Mexico, not the Grand Canyon.

    I hope the EPA continues its efforts to keep our air and water clean. Utah only meets the minimum EPA requirements - and it shows. Our air is some of the worst in the nation. There are times during inversions when two members of my family cannot go outside due to respiratory problems. I'm not willing to sacrifice the health of my family just so companies can beat clean air and water regulations.
