    Oh, no, please don't leave. We're sorry. We really did not mean to consider the way you conduct business a poison to human health. Please, please, when we said "clean up your act" we didn't mean "we don't want to burden our health-system to deal with CVD's and carcinogens from your wish to make a pretty-penny, and sense it has turned into an argument of business, the millions of dollars EPA has claimed is the result of a persons' death by pollution." we really meant "please, please, we put business at the helm of our nation. Stay here, we will fix our way of life to benefit you..."


    Assume for a minute we use trade sanctions and enforce the notion that Factories based in the US cannot re-locate, do you think they will operate here at a loss?
    I am not in favor for regulation to tell a business where it can and cannot operate.
    I don't think they will have a choice if that's that case though.
    What is inane and absurd is the notion that Government can make us all prosperous safe and happy. But that appears to be the weak mental state of the Western world today; that Government is the answer to all our needs.
    What is theology and superstition is this bull**** idea of the free-market being the great patron to our lives. That's nothing more than religion.
    When the factories close, will the Government re-open them and use tax payer dollars to pay to operate them at a loss until all our money runs out? That would be the better question.
    They will turn the factories into baby furnaces. They will make Kristallnacht look like an invitation to a county fair.

    California already has a law that home thermostats must be able to be remotely controllable by the state.

    Is that a conspiracy theory??
