Fat-ass Paul LePage and the Environment
Fat-ass Paul LePage proves once again that he is every bit as venal, corrupt, incompetent, and uncaring as his intellectual hero, gee-dubya bush.
In his latest push to make Maine friendlier to business (and screw the little guy), he now wants to "relax" dozens of environmental rules:
- He wants to repeal rules requiring that manufacturers take back recyclable goods: "Every nickel deposit business doesn't hafta pay to some damn consumer is another nickel that can go to executive compensation, stockholder dividends, and my campaign."
- He wants to open 10 million acres of northern Maine to commercial development: "Every new business we can bring to Maine will generate executive compensation, stockholder dividends, and contributions to my campaign."
- He wants to reverse a ban on a chemical in children's products that has been linked to cancer: "Why worry about kids? They can't vote for me, nor can they increase executive compensation, stockholder dividends, or contributions to my campaign."
- He wants to make Maine's environmental laws conform to less-stringent Federal laws (eventually, he'd like them to conform to the environmental laws in Mississippi, Alabama, Nigeria, Sudan, and China): "Who needs clean air and clean water?"
Fat-ass Paul Lepage and Common Courtesy
One of the folks here in town asked me why I always refer to Fat-ass Paul LePage as "Fat-ass Paul LePage."
"Why don't you show him the respect he is due as Governor of the State of Maine?"
"Go to Hell" and "Kiss my butt."
In the "kiss my butt" fiasco, he mentioned his "son" Devon Raymond. Of course, as a rethuglican teabaggin lyin sack-o-turd, Fat-ass LePage is still not telling the truth. Raymond was not adopted by the Fat-ass LePage family (hell, he probably isn't even in this country legally). Raymond's daddy caddied for Fat-ass when Fat-ass was on vacation a few years back.
So I'll show Fat-ass LePage some common courtesy when he does the same for others.
I'm not holding my breath, though.
