    From the articleNorth Dakota and 12 other states requested the injunction, which halts enforcement of the Waters of the United States rule. Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, South Dakota, and Wyoming were also party to the suit, which seeks to have the rule, scheduled to go into effect Friday, overturned.

    Months back I posted about this in here in relation to the Gulf of Mexico's dead zone from water flowing down the Mississippi River and how since 1996 the goddamned EPA has suppressed distribution of a report on the sources of the pollution.

    Guess who is at the top of the list?
    Farms? no.
    Industry? no.
    City sewage? no.

    #1 was GOLF COURSES.
    #2. was upper middle class planned community lawns.

    Tell the EPA to start closing down golf courses and see how well that flies.

    North Dakota's Attorney General, quoted in this article, was once my personal attorney. He botched the sale of my house as my agent, when the Army reassigned me to Texas and I had to depart before it had been sold, costing me many thousands of dollars.

    I have no use for this guy, and I have no doubt he's handling the legal affairs of North Dakota as ineptly as he handled mine. And yet, given the paucity of talent in the State Republican Party, I'm sure he's a strong contender for the Governor's office in the future.

    that's very true Bob, many golf courses are just very pretty toxic waste dumps, they use dozens of chemicals and pesticides and fertilizers

    the PGA and the USGA doesn't like to admit it, but it's true

    it's getting a little better, but not much
