Scott Pruitt resigns!!! BEST NEWS I’VE HEARD ALL DAY!!!
I know, trump is gonna nominate that POS for scotus…
Glad to see him out but the one who sets the direction for the EPA is still the ginger pig, who has only a limited vocabulary and even more limited mind and near zero conscience, integrity, honor, or common decency…this resignation will not be a “victory” for America or Mother earth until everything the corrupt scum pruitt destroyed, deregulated, polluted, or sold-out repaired and strengthened!
Now I want to see the evil scum indicted and breaking rocks for the rest of his rotten life!..along with the scum who hired him!
My money’s on Robert Murray, Ex-CEO, Ex-Con of Murray Energy.
some traveling music for the resignee
Thank you Les McCann and Eddie Harris - th mantra for the age… Compared to What!
Great news!, however I really want to know where this piece of crap goes next…
and who’s up to be the next shyte-head to continue destroying the EPA.
Murray still runs Murray Energy. Are you thinking of Blankenship and the former Massey Energy?
Pruitt will have a million dollar a year job with another corrupt wall street corporation within a week, just a part of the revolving door between the white house and wall street.
Pruitt is one of those people who believe that there is absolutely nothing in the world worse than government regulations. Even the effects of climate change, which could result in a population collpase is not as bad. Dirty water to drink, not as bad. Polluted air to breathe, not as bad. Government regulations are the worse. Freedom from all government regulations is one thing really worth fighting for. How can Americans be free if there are government regulations? Agencies that regulate must be dismantled to obtain freedom. Pruitt put up the good fight against regulations. I imagine he will go back to Oklahoma a hero and continue his mission in life. This is a small setback for the fanatic libertarians in their fight for economic freedom but I am sure they have a number of excellent candidates to takes his place in the achieve the critical goal of dismantling the Environmental Protection Agency. .
I feel little cause for celebration. Trump will simply replace him with another denialist friend of polluters who will be at least as effective at continuing the work of dismantling the EPA while not having his proclivity for graft and corruption.
Pruitt tried to play with the “big boys” and wasn’t good enough. He was the “poorest” of the Cabinet appointees. We’ll likely get someone just as bad, or worse, as far as ethics go, but a smoother operator. The Senate will endure some naysayers, but approve the replacement.
Ha! Both apparently! I stand corrected.
One rat jumps ship , another takes its place
Apparently this is the answer to your question. with caveat that you have include all the names on his compensation/lobbying list as well:
Last night, the PBS News Hour reported on the latest outrageous action Pruitt had taken to benefit himself and his wife. I wondered how long this POS could remain EPA head. The answer came quickly. Corruption in government must not be countenanced. All the legislators need to do some soul searching with regard to their tepid response to Pruitt’s outrageous, self-serving abuses of his position. All the time and money that was being spent to investigate Pruitt and bring him to justice can now be directed elsewhere. There is more corruption to unmask.
Yes, though none of that money was being spent by Congress.
Can the PEOPLE sue the Pruitt for stealing taxpayer money?
Oh, and I just heard that a coal lobbyist was taking his place.
Victory is a bit premature. We’ll just get a carbon copy. Every time a copy is made, the quality decreases.
And this is REAL!! Thanks so much, Old Goat.
Because of threat of climate change the ideology against government regulation has basically become a suicide pact. If they had some sort of alternative view to deal with the problem that didn’t involve government regulation that is one thing, but instead they simply deny there is a problem being caused by human activity.
