El Paso will always lose to the EPA because we have Juarez across the line and the EPA can't stop what occurs in Juarez from drifting into El Paso or into Texas. Yeah our coal fired electrical plants need to be updated and the exhaust filtered better but we also don't need to be battered to death by the EPA.

Just think how much federal government money would be saved if congress de-funded the EPA!

I smell a filthy rat here. I just bought a new filtration system for my house with a newfangled contraption that keeps the air as pure as the driven snow. Now it might be on the fritz and my house is starting to smell. I had to buy it because my husband has terrible gas and he's always farting in my face and getting me to smell it. I'd wonder if the EPA has any regulations about that.
