Why Do You Keep Allowing?

“Last Call at the Oasis”
by Tara Lohan - May 11, 2012

“There are 1,200 Superfund sites the EPA can’t deal with, the government won’t save you.

For all our clean water laws, we aren’t very good at enforcement.  From 2004 to 2005 an investigation found that the Clean Water Act was violated more than half a million times.  It’s not just industry, but pesticides like atrazine, which we learn can be detected in the rain water in Minnesota when it’s being applied in Kansas.  In Michigan we see another awful side to Big Ag, the liquid waste from factory “farming,” known as Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations.  These CAFOs threaten drinking water with chemicals, antibiotics and growth hormones.”

As always with Alternet, this article is a damn good read,
and an excellent perspective of our shared Pax Americana reality.

Have you noticed how many articles I link from Alternet?
It's because they do an excellent job of allowing truth to be authority,
rather than like FOX, where authority is manipulatively displayed as truth.
