Is it possible that any of those budgets were inflated?


#19232

I’m interested to see what effects Trump’s cuts to these various organizations will have. I feel like they’ll be bad, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.


#19233

I’m not defending nor condemning, but it seems like a lot of those departments are redundant.

Do you really need an “environmental justice” department AND an “office of compliance”, when the description is the same for both?


#19234

Of course.

Is the danger of occasionally having to audit the expenses of a prevention program greater than the danger of raising a generation of people mentally impaired from lead poisoning?


#19235

money is getting out of the pockets of bureaucrats but of course liberals will turn that into problem


#19236

At first glance a lot that spending may seem redundant, but then you start to realize some of the differences between developed and developing nations.


#19237

How is it dooming? The regulations are still in the books, and if people still feel this string about it, they can make private organizations to sue companies for breaking the law.


#19238

What standing would private citizens have to seek recourse before harm is done? Hence the ‘doom’ part. Which turns the purpose of the regulations on their ear as their intent is to prevent harm.

Not to mention that it is far easier to prevent harm through active monitoring than it is to ascertain who the responsible party is after the fact.


#19239

I’ll place this card face down and end my turn. Can’t wait for the trap to spring.

LOL @ this even being a legal issue in the United States. GTFO. Gonna name my baby ABSOLUTELY HARAM!


#19241

I’m not sure I follow here. People take advantage of public funding when it’s not their money being given away? That’s exactly what taxes are though. You pay taxes to provide for public services such as road maintenance and public transportation. Everyone contributes when they pay taxes, but yes, ultimately it’s up to local government to budget correctly. My state, California, is awful at budgeting money as well. Roads and highways are in constant need of repair. Budgeting correctly will help, yes, but isn’t that just throwing more money into one problem, while taking funds away from another problem? How do you fix this? It doesn’t help that in states like California and NY, the population is practically growing faster than public services can keep up. An example would be the BART, a public train transportation system in the bay area, was built several years ago with a certain population growth in mind. Unfortunately, the tech boom in the bay area meant a huge population increase, and the BART is now struggling to maintain itself.

Are these cuts going to increase people’s exposure to lead for sure? I honestly don’t know, that’s why I’m asking. I’ll look into it when I have a chance.

Also are they actually occasionally audited?


#19243

Yeah, actually. There are multiple vectors for lead exposure, of course, and I doubt the increased risk from each vector will be equally apportioned. But at a minimum we can say that after about 100 years lead water mains start to degrade and leach into drinking water, and guess how old most of the public water systems in the US are?

Plus lead based paint control in buildings older than 1978, and remediation for soil in places exposed due to industrial or automotive exhaust.

Well well the billion dollar man George Soros. Here we are politicalmania, and Its the biggest match of your career. Why? Because everything you stand for is on the line. Mainly global world government and the billion dollar belt. Oh yes. It can be yours once again. You see, all you have to do to get it back, is go through Damien, and me. But you see Damien and I don’t forget. We remember. We remember all the times you made innocent people grovel for your money. These were people far less fortunate than you, people who could use your money for essentials, and what did you do? You made fun of them. You dumbed them down and manipulated them. WELL NOW ITS MY TURN. I’m going to make you beg Soros. You are going to get down on your hands and knees. This time you’ll be the one that’s humbled, this time you’ll be the one who’s humiliated, and this time you’ll be the one that grovels for the money. And how appropriate. Hhm hhm hmm how appropriate that the money you grovel for is your very own. A victim of your own greed. Wallowing, in the muck of averris.

Clearly the solution is to privatize everything, make every road a toll road, every single aspect of transportation controlled by few companies, even though it’ll be much more expensive in the long run for consumers it’ll be more efficient and we can hold these companies accountable by wagging our fingers at them and bailing them out because they would be such an integral part of the local economy that them shutting down would absolutely destroy businesses and livelihoods there. Also if no companies want to invest in something that might be a loss for them such as public transportation then we should have never funded it in the first place. Funding things that can’t turn a profit is anti-american and anybody that can’t get their own form of transportation to work just needs to git gud. The founding fathers would be disappointed if we did anything but extol our unabashed love for unfettered capitalism. Ben Franklin would be absolutely ashamed at the prospect of providing things for people that wasn’t profitable, like libraries and education, this is why PBS and NPR need to burn in the wellspring of dark flames that is hell or as I like to call it “socialism”.


#19246

What the fuck…

That will teach me to unhide your posts smh.


#19247

They’re wrestling promos dude. If you’re not a fan of old school WWF you won’t get it.

If people find it funny I’ll leave it up if people don’t get it I’ll delete it. You gotta read the promos using the wrestlers voice.
