Re: “Utilities set to meet new clean-air standards, official says

Sure, the city is working on meeting the new clean-air standards now, but the whole point is that they've been polluting out of control for decades and lying to cover it up.

Re: “The Trump presidency, deplorables, the media, and more

Interesting letters this week. First off our system of the electoral college does work we vote in a Democratic way but count in the electoral so as to be true to our republic. That's what you tell your children the truth. If you remember correct Baby Bush won the same way. Time will tell if Trump makes the right calls for our Country with what powers he may have. I personally think things are going to put in that hand basket and go to that place Grandma warned us about. But we will see. Everybody wants some kind of change and looks to the President to do it but ignores the rest of our leadership where the changes are needed and that's Congress. All of our policy and laws come from that group and yet everyone looks to the President. Trump just like Obama and Bush is only going to get as much done as Congress allows and Congress is influenced by money. Not your vote not mine just by who ever has the most money and they are secure in there jobs because the voters are preoccupied by the Presidential election and whats promised to them by that one person. Everyone talks about coming together as one Nation but we keep voting one group over the other then the next time its the other groups turn after the first group screws up and blames the President. We need balance, compromise and solid leadership in all three branches of Government. Not one side takes all and we damn sure need the money taken out of the Capitol so the people have a voice again. The biggest problem with Obama was Congress not doing a damn thing and him going forward on his own with what few powers he had. We dont need more of that. But that's just my opinion.

Re: “Utilities set to meet new clean-air standards, official says

The truth has come out by the Courts disclosure of CSU effort to lie to the public about the negative health effects of the pollution spewing from Martin Drake. The reason CSU tried to hide the truth from the public is now an open secret. Shame on you Jerry Forte.

Election will provide some "Wiggle" Room for continued progress with Neumann System.

CSU has done a major technical improvement to coal fired Utilities.

Risky, but it has worked, Hat's Off to Them !

Re: “Indigenous locals travel to Standing Rock to join pipeline resistance

"1,172-mile infrastructure project piping crude oil fracked from the Bakken shale formation"... Be sure the word "fracked" is in there to make i as bad as one can. Then call themselves "water protectors" to sound good. Then they all hop in their pickup trucks and drive the protest site for a project that is almost complete which is an oil pipeline. Oil is stuff that powers their pickups, heats homes etc., all things we demand. Stop driving then. Make government regulate it some more to drive up the costs,eliminate the jobs and have skeleton crews working hard prone to mistakes while the company cuts corners because of profits lost by regulating. The stuff that heats homes has no better way to get to those homes than a pipeline. You won't have water in a frozen home.
1000 mile pipeline is a short run considering there are over 2 million miles of pipeline in this country. So this protest is over perceptions of maybe future problem or protecting water? No. It is protesting on private land which will get one arrested for trespassing and then perhaps a cash payoff to go away so the 10% left to go can be finished. Then protesters can wash their pickup trucks with precious water and drive back to their warm home knowing they have driven up the price of heat, wasted water and will not have to sit in the tipi when the temperature hits 20 below. 2 million miles of pipeline yet to inspect if they are worried about water. We are safe now, except for that damn fracking which if you do not like you can disable your thermostat and walk everywhere. Idiots.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Yeah, I guess the right has conviently forgotten the last 8 years of hate that they rained down on Obama. They voted in a candidate backed by the KKK. It's like they've just smeared shit over every WWII soldiers grave with their voting in of President Man-Baby.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Thank goodness the President doesn't have near as much power as the average idiot seems to think he does. If he did I would be very afraid but if 8 years of Bush didn't prove that no idiot is going to be allowed an unsupervised presidency. He will do as much damage as the real people in power allow him to to serve their own purposes.

A press due to the presence of The Indy. Hopefully the town will grow to the point where it can support a real daily paper.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Hey Mike What has Clinton been convicted of? Here's a clue NOTHING. Why? Because maybe nothing shes done is CRIMINAL. Have you ever thought of that.Trump knows this and has known this but used the hype to get a bunch of folks to vote for him. Why was the the Federal form of Government changed? Here's another clue It did'nt work as intended. To many using there office to benefit themselves and not the people that sent them there. The people sent a bunch of fellas to Washington to do there bidding for them and when they got there they did what ever they wanted and not what the people wanted. Take your own advice read a History book. Sound like someone you just voted for. Think about what you just admitted. He said first thing was jail Clinton and take the ACA down. He hasent even taken office and has said he wont do either. What else wont he do that he promised once he takes office. Your screaming about some folks following the Liberals blindly when your doing the same thing with Conservatives. Our form of Governing is not perfect but its still the best in this World if he screws us over then we get to vote him out in four years or possibly impeach him. What Socialist Country gets this power? Should this "old Man" quit bitchen NO because that's something else that makes this Country great we all get to Bitch without retaliation its a right that's given to all of us including you, him and me.
