EPA budget slashed 31% As the USA is now the only nation on earth that does not support the Climate Accords, this is not a surprise! Witness the suicide of America here!
Leonard Smith I have my doubts about all that industry that is supposedly relocating stateside. Where is it? Manufacturing goes where salaries are depressed, raw materials are cheap and environmental safeguards do not exist. That's not the USA (with or without the EPA). Industrial developers also like well-maintained roads and nationally subsidized railroads that make for not just cheap but dependable, on-time transport. That's not here.ReplyDelete
Sometimes you have to raise taxes on the people who have the money to obtain the revenue to accomplish these infrastructure projects without ballooning the national debt. Sadly, that's not here, either.
Until Americans agree that the American nation is worth paying for with taxes sufficient to run the programs that will bring industrial growth, industry will continue to find the door marked "Exit." You get what you pay for. And you lose what you don't.
Leonard Smith I must be in denial. I keep forgetting about those robots, even though auto assembly lines stateside are already full of them and the jobs are gone.ReplyDelete
The USA prepares for war any time we are not actually in one.
But wait! The Korean war fighting ended only in a temporary agreement. And our troops are fighting in Mali and Iraq and Syria and Afghanistan and [ censored ] as we speak. And our armaments industry is supplying all sides of almost every conflict. No wonder our future looks bleak! With the exception of the arms merchants, of course who are prospering and will continue to bill taxpayers for their goods, whether we use them or not.
