Ahem, as in Pruitt having thin skin.


Oh...yeah!   No doubt about Pruitt...I guess I just figured that was so widely understood...

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

The same idiots made the Indian Brewery in Broken Arrow change its name (as it was culturally insensitive.)

You never know when a crackpot is more than just a keyboard tough guy.

If Blue Dragonflies or Blu (insert umlaut here) Dragonflies ever get offended, my businesses are jacked.

Scott Pruitt’s EPA and the White House sought to block publication of a federal health study on a nationwide water-contamination crisis, after one Trump administration aide warned it would cause a "public relations nightmare," newly disclosed emails reveal.

The intervention early this year — not previously disclosed — came as HHS' Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry was preparing to publish its assessment of a class of toxic chemicals that has contaminated water supplies near military bases, chemical plants and other sites from New York to Michigan to West Virginia.

The study would show that the chemicals endanger human health at a far lower level than EPA has previously called safe, according to the emails.

More than three months later, the draft study remains unpublished, and the HHS unit says it has no scheduled date to release it for public comment.

No kidding!  What a crock of carp!   The guys are Native Americans.  They talked to several tribes about it.  Would love to know what candy-a$$, non-Native, a...  I guess I better not say that...

Whoever complained needs to get out their jumbo Crayon set and sit down and color!  Shut up and let the adults talk!  And don't show their ignorant faces at the place.  Ever!

They are now calling it Broken Arrow Brewing Co.  Still a very cool building and I am looking forward to their opening and going out to visit!

Scott Pruitt asked for a 24/7 security detail, which he has blamed on security threats, before he ever started working at the agency, the EPA’s internal watchdog said Monday.
