    Trump has cut the fu¢king EPA by 20%, not far enough, but hopefully it will cripple them enough that they can't enforce much of anything, like the stupid lead laws.

    E&E News got new details about the budget's likely impact on the EPA from sources informed about the plan. A 20 percent staff decrease would mean layoffs of 3,000 employees, and a $2 billion cut would reduce the EPA budget by about 25 percent from its current $8.1 billion. For comparison, the 2016 Department of Agriculture budget was $140 billion, the State Department's was about $50 billion, and NASA's was about $18 billion. The Pentagon budget, which includes military spending, was $560 billion.¹
    I would classify all to the environmental groups as "hate groups" and turn the IRS on each and everyone of them, they hate contractors and try to hassle us every way they can, including suing us in serial, we settle one and another hits us, in the end they make fortunes all tax-free, just take their tax-free status away from them and make them pay taxes like the rest of us, and of course idiots who donate to them couldn't deduct their donations. And remember, cut open an environmentalist and you'll find a socialist inside.

        I like how political contributions are exempt from gift tax. I can give some politician $100k to go blow on yard signs but I can't give my kid cash to help him buy a house.

          Have your kid declare his candidacy for office, give him the 100k as a contribution, have him spend it on his new campaign headquarters building. Done.

            Hey, that's right, if I write him in on the ballot technically he's a candidate....

              it will be pretty interesting to take a look at St Louis and how they handle the lead issue. We just got approval for the new NSA building and I think it is something like 100 acres of land that needs to be cleared. Now a lot of the area is already vacant lots but there are still quite a few standing building there. I may have to drive up Jefferson and north of Cass to see if I can see any demo that might be going on.

              I am guessing they are just going to knock down the structures with the big shovels and buckets which seems such a waste for all the neat old brick and probably a bunch of old growth fir floor joists and such. I am hoping that someone is salvaging the pocket doors and stain glass windows, craftsman mantles and such out of there first.

              It has actually crossed my mind several times that I wonder what it takes to start a salvage business to save the materials and resell them. Insurance would be skyhigh, you would need some large equipement and a load of dependable workers. Brick is such a labor intensive material and in a repurposed market what can you get for used brick. You would also need a place to store the materials unless you could get lucky enough to sell them as the building came down. Like that would happen.
