Scott Pruitt and his EPA is one corrupt craphole.

Just an outright farce at this point and as swampy as it gets.

Not worked up...just seeing if there is any middle ground with some here.

Pruitt seems completely incompetent and crooked as can be.

That lotion one and the trying to find an old Trump hotel Mattress may be my favorite...

https://abcnews.go.c...ory?id=55809253

 

And we can go on...pulling this from another list...

Pruitt is now facing his 12th ethics investigation.  His scandals include

  • Improper use of first class travel (he claimed it was for his safety);
  • Installation of a $43,000 soundproof phone booth in his office;
  • Spending $9,000 to sweep his office for listening devices;
  • Rental of a lobbyist's condominium for $50/night;
  • Improperly giving raises to aides without approval;
  • Email abuses including using four separate email accounts;
  • Using aides to seek a Chick-fil-a franchise for his wife;
  • Using aides to find a used Trump Hotel mattress;
  • Asking aides to find some reason for him to visit vacation destinations, including Fiji.

Shulkin was doing a much better job at the VA and was canned for far far lesser scandal/ethical issues.

I'm not going to argue the obvious. But top of the head, the amount of lead in our environment specifically from leaded gas? Is down about 70%. Love Canal? Isn't even a thing anymore. Rivers starting on fire? Ditto. When was the last time you thought about acid rain? Not to mention all the Superfund sites that have been cleaned up. Living in Colorado, that's a big deal.

I remember when I lived in Ohio, there's an article about how the entire Northeast was just exponentially better off these days than it was a hundred years ago. And meanwhile, our economy has exponentially grown as well.

Pruitt is flat-out insane. The things he requests on taxpayer dollars and from his own staff makes JLo's backstage Rider sound absolutely reasonable.

Not quite what I was saying...and sure there needs to be changes...but putting it in the hands of other corrupt people run by special interests isn't a huge improvement at this point.  Especially when there is zero fear of repercussions out of congress.

If I'm remembering this right, it was Pruitt that had a specially designed flag just for him as leader of the agency and a flagpole installed on top of the building. The flag is only to be flown when he's in the office. The only other person who does such a thing? Is the Queen of England.

Fact is...this was a bit of a test.  Should be easy for people to admit how bad this guy is right now.  But some of you just can't do it.  Why is that?

Always a deflect about Obama...worry about who posted the thread in the first place...just what about what about what about.

It's not about deflection. It's about consistency in your hypocrisy.

If you want me to be honest no I don't really care about Pruitt or the EPA. I didn't care about the EPA under Obama either and whoever the hell ran it then. See? That's consistency. HTH

A. There is a topic that has zero to do with Obama and rather than address the topic, we get but Obama. That is a deflection by definition.
B. There is nothing close to a consensus on his point about Obama except among far right wing but jobs. Fact
C. Thats basic logic actually.

It absolutely is about deflection when several cant discuss something and are forced to bring up a whatabout...its the very definition of deflection.

If someone brought up someone this corrupt with what Pruitt has been doing as a comparison and I wasn't consistent...youd have a point. Where is that? What we have instead is right wing conspiracy sights making unsubstantiated claims about Obama and youball think its the same thing.

Then say that last paragraph rather than first whining about me or Obama. Its that simple...you all are too caught up in me posting it vs the topic at hand.

The EPA, like labor unions, was extremely needed when it started.  Over time the pendulum swung for both, and their efficacy is questionable other than a few specific cases.  I think it should still exist, but in a significantly contracted form.  No company is going to dump toxic waste into a river like the old days; all it takes is one person to leak to the interwebs and they would be out of business.

 

Also like Timmy I know little about this Pruitt guy so I can't agree or disagree with the OP.  Sounds like a POS from the links tho.  :cheers:

Half the country doesn't follow this stuff, so they are clean.

 

But with the other half.......Right vs wrong, good vs evil, clean vs corrupt. None of this matters at all any more. All that matters is The Culture War. And The Culture War isn't even about believing in something at this point. If given the option of seeing your side do something great vs seeing the other side humiliated, the latter would carry the vote by an inordinate margin. Tis very true.

 

I'd offer my advice on the subject, but it doesn't matter at all because our brains are only capable of filtering my words through your particular side of The Culture War's lens. Independent thought is dead.

 

That's why this is a dumb topic. Just like the others.

I think we are beyond opinion with Pruitt.
The point was this should be something easy to agree upon...instead, we get what about Obama.
Daily? Well thats just BS too.
We have talked about taxes...the cuts are still benefitting the rich and corps far more than the middle class and atbtue expense of future generations. Im also guessing none of you want to talk about the recent report on inflation and wages...or even jobs. Because its lagging a bit at this point.
Military...what about it?

Corruption at any level was the point and it was an easy exercise and most of you still cant discuss it or admit it...

So you post a topic "Can we all agree on this" and get p!ssy because people point out how despite overwhelming evidence, you continue saying 'it's all a conspiracy' when someone says 'can we all agree Clintons/Obama were the most corrupt'. 

 

So until you start 'agreeing' with the mountain of evidence that supports our assertion, GFY.
