OPEN YOUR EYES...
The USA is still the greatest and most powerful country ever to inhabit the planet...
We take for granted ...more freedoms and conveniences than most countries could hope for.,,,,These freedoms cost lives and money....lots of money...
The USA is a business with a great PR machine...and the brute force to back it up...
Under the guise of regulating and protecting us from stuff that can hurt us...The EPA has quietly created a niche economy , that creates alot of jobs and revenues ,trying to keep up with newer and newer enviromental standards...However...If your corporation has enough money to buy credits from more compliant companies...you can keep dumping your pollution as long as you afford it...

Nothing is perfect ...get over it...Try living in rural Mexico or China....
To do away with the EPA would change the landscape forever....not for the better..

I don't want to do away with it, just pull some of it's teeth. We seem to be a good job of exporting our jobs and pollution to 3rd world countries. I suppose we are consuming their resources too.

The EPA is not an elected position...you cant vote them out...
If you had the chance to cut your labor costs by 80 % and substantially increase your profits...wouldn't you give it some thought......
Loyalty to a bunch of people that dont even send you a Christmas card...
Or...A new house on the beach in the Bahamas.....It's a tempting proposition..
And a really popular idea with the stockholders....

The EPA has given big business a good excuse to export their production facilities...These businesses then make obscene profits and donate tons of money to the candidates that made it look like the EPA was the bad guy...instead of them...Its knee jerk economics...It's how policies are initiated...The only way to get you to cozy up to a pig is to get rid of all the pleasant animals on the farm....leaving only the pig and the wolf....
You will be hard pressed to find any Government agency decision that didnt financially improve someones position...

The sooner you realize its all about money and power...

Why not just grind slots into the screw heads so you can adjust them with a normal screwdriver? Have also seen EPA carb screwdriver sets all over eBay for around $30 with four different types.
