Oh yeah, Bush

Hm, I think we all sort of forgot that George Bush was still President.  Well he is, and he’s trying to end his tenure with a bang, pushing through all sorts of deregulations before the door hits him on the way out.  Most of the changes would be really really bad ones, by allowing more coal mining waste into streams and rivers, less reporting of fisheries depletion and lifting caps on power-plant emissions.  Look for yet more when/if the election descends into a vote-fraud frenzy.  The nice thing about bureaucracy is that it’s so boring that most people don’t even want to pay attention – but even if they do, folks on the street have next to no power to change the decisions made.
