    Bush sneaks through host of laws to undermine Obama
    The lame-duck Republican team is rushing through radical measures, from coal waste dumping to power stations in national parks, that will take months to overturn, reports Paul Harris in New York

    * The Observer, Sunday 14 December 2008

    After spending eight years at the helm of one of the most ideologically driven administrations in American history, George W. Bush is ending his presidency in characteristically aggressive fashion, with a swath of controversial measures designed to reward supporters and enrage opponents.

    By the time he vacates the White House, he will have issued a record number of so-called 'midnight regulations' - so called because of the stealthy way they appear on the rule books - to undermine the administration of Barack Obama, many of which could take years to undo.

    Dozens of new rules have already been introduced which critics say will diminish worker safety, pollute the environment, promote gun use and curtail abortion rights. Many rules promote the interests of large industries, such as coal mining or energy, which have energetically supported Bush during his two terms as president. More are expected this week.

    Final reckoning

    Bush's midnight regulations will:

    Make it easier for coal companies to dump waste from strip-mining into valleys and streams.

    Ease the building of coal-fired power stations nearer to national parks.

    Allow people to carry loaded and concealed weapons in national parks.

    Open up millions of acres to mining for oil shale.

    Allow healthcare workers to opt out of giving treatment for religious or moral reasons, thus weakening abortion rights.

    Hurt road safety by allowing truck drivers to stay at the wheel for 11 consecutive hours.

    You'd think they would at least try not to be so overt with their biases . . . .

    Who is this clown and where's he getting his "information"?

    1. This administration has led tons of wildlife conservation efforts, pretty sure he wouldn't be in favor of dumping "coal waste" into streams.

    2. Carrying firearms in national parks is common sense. Since when does the Constitution say where we can or cannot enjoy the items in our Bill of Rights? Not to mention the fact that people are routinely hurt in nature by things like bears, mountain lions, etc. Having a firearm in those types of situations levels the playing field and maintains animals fear of man. Once they no longer fear man you see many more attacks. This is widely documented across the country (New Jersey's aggressive bear population due to ending hunting, California's rising mountain lion attacks). These libtards make it seem like suddenly gang-bangers are going to be toting AK-47's in our national parks and robbing campers. Idiots.

    3. Mining for oil shale? Given that an estimated TRILLION barrels of oil are potentially tappable from our oil shale reserves across the great American Northwest....I'm thinkin that's a GOOD thing.

    Failure on so many levels. Silly Liberals, news is for kids! :D
