Firstly, if you wish to discuss whomever Clinton pardoned as he was leaving office, may we do so in another thread? This thread is about water pollution.
The Bush administration said yesterday it will consider removing Clean Water Act protections against pollution and development from up to one-fifth of the nation's streams, ponds, lakes, mudflats and wetlands.- Seattle Post-Intelligencer
I have a clear objection to the current administration's removal of anything that protects our nations' waters from corporate, or any other sort of pollution. What you've given me is a list of writings about the Clean Water Act, mostly opinions. What is it about each of these that supports your argument? Above and beyond that... What is
One more thing... The Free Republic is more famous for namecalling and personal attacks on Democrats, than for any sort of hard news. It is basically downing any sort of control over pollution in the water, because it may be harming somebody's 'right use his/her land they way they choose'. Well, the fact of the matter is, there are 3rd party implications. Pollution of the water on your property, may have a detrimental impact on MY property, thus stripping me of my rights.
Again, I will ask... If you have an argument to make on this topic, please make it.
