Keeping America safe? |

Keeping America safe?

Every time his smirking face appears on TV stating he is keeping America safe, at home and work, these few facts (of many) come to mind. George Bush is:

• Taking away the right to overtime pay from up to 6 million Americans, including nurses, cooks, clerical workers, and nursery school teachers.

• Allowing dirty power plants to expand without controlling their emissions.

• Endangering pregnant workers by stopping regulating exposure to chemicals used in the manufacturing of semiconductors.

• Rolling back mercury regulations and proposing to defer controls on toxic mercury emissions by power plants for at least a decade.

• Reducing protections for mine workers and eliminating rules to protect workers from tuberculosis.

Why is he doing this? The answer is simple. He grants favors in exchange for big time donation$ to his campaign. It’s obvious that Bush doesn’t care about you, your children, or the people of America. He only cares about winning this election and giving us four more years of hell. This man doesn’t know how to earn an honest nickel, or tell the truth, and if you think I’m wrong then you need to pull your head out of the sand and give yourself one good reality check.
