    Dear Smarmy, Self Important Intellectual Wanna Be,

    Thank you for your attempt to come off sounding like the smartest person in the room. I simply adore the way you assume that writing something in the same smug tone one would write a letter to the New Yorker somehow makes you sound witty and urbane.

    Also, it is simply the height of drollness that, instead of debating Deer Flatener, you simply attempt to dismiss his points without offering any real susbstance of your own. But of course you attempt to cover that up by being snide. How delightful! You must be a Hipster!

    Anyway, just wanted to say ta and thanks so much for proving that there is just as much lack of depth on the left side as there is in the right. Keep up the good work!


    The Actual Rest of the World Who Kindly Request That You Get Over Yourself

    This can go on all day long. So let’s just cut to the chase. Despite what you may believe, not everyone who disagrees with you is ignorant. Some of your points are correct and some, I know you’ll find this difficult to believe, are not.

    My point is, debate the points instead of hiding behind some smarmy rhetoric. If you couldn’t understand that, take a few classes yourself.

    ok here is a breakdown

    . the EPA was created to protect the environment, in many ways it has seen success such in a way you can safely throw a match into the love canal without fear of it combusting.

    The DoE has little to no enforcement capability, as such it will have little to no impact, those whom want greater state rights wish to either A remove it or B keep it as it is. This is a case of a failed middle road.

    The department of agriculture itself provides little protection to farmers, little protection against land grabs. It works more in favor of large farms.

    However I will mention that reduction in farmers is a process that occurred over the past century as crop yield went up. A 2% oversupply can be enough to drop prices by 10% as a result most people don’t want to enter the industry.

    The constitution is not meant as a singular piece of legislation that controls all things in the USA. It is a backbone. Most departments were either unnecessary or thought of when the country was begin founded. Things such as the EPA would be absurd as the total population of the continent was less than 3 million.

    The war department ( as it was up until ww2) was historically created as a military department, It would be used to capture new land & to be used in defense.

    Terrorism was not in the cultural lexicon up until the 90’s however in more recent times it has had such labels ascribed to it as to justify its gargantuan size in relativity to the rest of the world

    Thank you. I also apologize for the tone in my response as well. I also agree I am in the wrong as often, if not more so, then I am in the right. I can’t fault you like to see your criteria be sourced. I hope you will correct me when you believe I am wrong. I will welcome the alternate point of view.

    “Roadkilleater” just keeps proving those nasty prions have destroyed his brain.

    The EPA doesn’t write laws, Congress does. Regulations are supposed to implement laws, though under Reagan, many did the opposite of what the law called for. (I had to monitor regs as part of my job at the time.) That some of those regulations may inconvenience corporate profit taking, is the real problem “conservatives” have with the agency.

    Hmm, NEPA is what created the whole thing and was signed into law by Nixon with a Republican Congress, what a bunch of environmental whackos they were!!

    Wow. Must be great to be as wonderful as you. Thanks though. I now know I can ignore your comments as they hold no value. Saves me some time.

    The scrubbers were a mandate. Turning them on was an option the power companies not to take.

    Actually I didn’t flag your post. So I can’t really say.

    As to my reference to you being bigoted, it comes from the ending statement of your post where you told me to ‘Cram it…’ and then used a racial epitaph. If I had to guess, then I would assume this is what got your post flagged

    Actually now that I look, I see David’s comment also got deleted. I’m not sure why honestly. It didn’t deserve it.

    “parker knows your name” said, about 24 hours ago. . . . and dontcha wonder why the environmental protection agency has nothing to say about monsanto’s glophosate, ddt, agent orange, round-up? oh, former monsanto officials sit on the epa. and on the fda. and on the usda. and even on the supreme court.//////////

    The EPA is much needed, but limited by the politicos, who are limited by their need for campaign financing. .The problem is that campaign finance laws create bribery. Yes, good old-fashioned bribery. .Bribery is illegal under the common law. Completely illegal, always has been..So our legislators try to redefine it by statues in such a way that they cannot be prosecuted for taking what amount to bribes. The courts uphold them. Why?.The answer is simple, bribery is allowed to go all the way though the system and plays a major role in selecting the members of our highest courts..Let’s not become anarchists. We need government. But GOOD government.

    Sigh. The comment was ‘Cram it Palie’. The part I’m refering to is ‘Palie’. I can’t think of many other meanings for ‘Palie’ than as an epithet (you are correct. I used the wrong word. Sorry and thanks for the correction). But I may be jumping the gun. If you meant something else by it, fine. My apologies for making the assumption. I still disagree with the approach you took in your response to Deerflatener.
