Don't try it on my private land. They haven't gotten me disarmed yet!

While I doubt if Tweedledumb will do much worse than Tweedledee, the bad
policy of this administration would only be increased under a new
all-out-socialist approach to regulating the environment that Algore has
been advocating so strongly.

For a specific example of the delightful pristine wilderness produced by
these methods, one has only to visit the remnants of the late Soviet Union
and see the cesspools of pollution 70 years of "central planning" can
create. That's exactly the scenario that the Sierra-Club-style methods would
provide here.

Love Canal was a total government-created fiasco, actually *not* caused by
Hooker Chemical. Do we need more of such?

No thanks.
