    There's been a lot about the oil industry not paying its fair share of taxes...yet it pays a higher rate than Apple or Google, which both made more than Exxon-Mobile. There has been a lot about fracking polluting water wells, with Range Energy being cited for water well pollution...which was quietly dropped a few weeks ago after 2 long years as there was no pollution. So you wonder why all this angst? Here is the EPA in the words of the Dallas Regional Administrator.

    This guy was an environmentalist extremist way before getting hired, had a long history. The EPA knew exactly who and what he was, and has endorsed his actions until this came to be known.

    The "left" in our gov't has made such a hard left turn over the past 20 years it amazes how much the general public just don't understand a "right" turn to correct the course. :rolleyes:

    Like firing him is going to change their approach any. The next one will be smart enough to keep their mouth shut. Only names changes.

    Wonder what the oil industry thinks of EPA and Dept of nonenergy.

    DOE comsumes BILLIONS and all they do is make the producers job worse and the price of everything HIGHER.

    But see, thats the problem. Over the last 32 years a Republican has been in the white house 20 of them. So people don't understand how far to the left we've gone. And it wasn't a hard turn to the left either. It was a very long gradual sweeping turn. So long we didn't realize how far we went. Not we're trying to jerk the wheel right to bring us back on course and all the back seat drivers are having a fit.
