    Succint, but not accurate. This is a ruling that affects much of an industry and the Supreme Court was well aware of this fact. So the "it's a ruling against 'a' business" is incorrect.
    They ruled against a business that can be interpreted as "A" ruling against (no a) business. So what's your fricking point? Are businesses supposed to be immune from regulation? Was the EPA created to go after individuals only? If you find the court to be in error, then argue that point. If the EPA is wrong, then tell us why, but don't whine about poor little industry being the victim.

    I'm not anti-business. You know **** well that I benefit from business on a daily basis, so being anti-business is stupid. But business is not made up from a bunch of angels and needs regulation. We can argue all day about the good or bad of a specific regulation, but letting business self-regulate doesn't work.

    Uhmmm. Read the thread. Read the part where I say this may be good or bad, but that's not the point. Then really concentrate on Hex' synopsis.

    I could have made different assumptions you would have liked less.

    I made one point and only one point - just ask Dryflie. The point was not whether or not this was an appropriate or good decision.

    That would be Mr. Dryflie, thank you.

    There has been a bit of a war going between the natural gas producers and coal producers as to which will provide future electricity. Was the decision against the coal industry or was it in favor of the natural gas industry? I'd say this was a pro-industry decision, IF you own a natural gas company!

    yep. not to mention pro-solar, pro-wind, pro-conservation, pro recreation, pro health care industries......to name a few who will benefit from the decision.
