But but Republicans say we don't need regulations! Everybody would just regulate themselves and all will be well.

The irony... one government agency policing another government agency. The results nothing gets done! So lets blame the republicans for easing regulations when the problem is government bureaucracy. Democrats think government is the solution to every problem are blinded by resolution with empty promises.

fisherboy - no, the problems lie with anti-government republican politicians who corrupt the process, and then blame the ineffectiveness on the system itself. The solution is simple - quit dumping so much crap in OUR lakes. Unfortunately, the pro-crap lobbyists and politicians continue to muck everything up (pun intended).

Since there is NO policy for control of population growth crapping directly into the water is almost inevitable.

bosshog - "But Republicans say we don't need regulations! Everybody would just regulate themselves and all will be well." Yes but this is conflict between two government agencies. I wonder how much of a role TPaw's lackeys played in this 'SOAP OPERA' seeing as it was during his reign that promises were made but never kept.

fisherboy - "The irony... one government agency policing another government agency. The results nothing gets done! So lets blame the republicans for easing regulations when the problem is government bureaucracy" The Republicans from Reagan to GWB have a history of Laissez-faire with regulations that they don't agree with as evidenced by the lack of EPA enforcement in the 80's and the holding back of funds to projects that GWB didn't like. It is possible that Tpaw, an admirer of both, mimicked his heroes in state matters
