Yeah, funny how Cornbread is suddenly becoming an environmentalist, but this is his schtick. He's basically saying, "Hey, aren't you guys (liberals) supposed to be the environmentalists, here?", even though this problem would have occurred and will continue to occur under a Republican or a Democrat.
How can somebody complain about stormwater/sewage effluent runoff on the one hand, ridicule environmental regulations on the other hand, and oppose government spending on the third hand, while trying to use government transit money for sewer remediation and trying to blame everything on the Democrats when it was carried out under both parties?
Ya got me, but this guy keeps trying.
The troll-feeding warning is right -- this person is just throwing mud at a wall to see what sticks and has no consistent viewpoint at all, so there's no point in trying to straighten out his thinking. A reactionary is somebody who reacts mindlessly and blindly to immediate stimuli without developing a consistent theoretical foundation, and that's what we see here.
At the same time he provides a valuable service. We now know a lot more about Great Lakes water quality legislation than we did before, just as we know a lot more about environmental issues in the sand counties and several more topics. And the facts repeatedly boil down to this: people in general -- both in and out of government -- are trying to do the best they can for their property values, their communities, their financial well-being, and the environment present and future. I feel optimistic every time I go past the nonsense and dig up background on one of these topics.
So while I still find admin's refusal to close down this guy's account indefensible, we might as well play the hand we're dealt. And it's turning out to be not only playable, but a good hand -- same as the D-man stuff turned out to be.
I'm willing to keep doing the research (as time permits) as long as others remain interested and keep contributing -- it's strangely worthwhile.
