    A misuse of the word but that is normal for the internet!
    Text from FBI Attorney Page to FBI Agent Strozk.
    “Trump’s not ever going to become president, right? Right!?” Page texted Strzok in August 2016.
    “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.

    Recyclable material is still useful once repurposed.

    There is a materials mass almost twice the size of Texas in our oceans; does the private sector have a profit motive to Capitalize on material reclamation; or, should socialists, have a democratic referendum regarding directing our command economy, to command economize that materials mass.

    Giga-Recycling factories are a solution, in Any case.

    Yeah. If I want to dump toxic sludge in the nearest river, that’s my business. Who are they to ban it?

    Why ban when you can sue for damage? Sue people for the problems the cause. More stuff is made better because people take care of their problems themselves.

    No it isn't. How many times have polluters and big corporations won such lawsuits, not had to pay, even after the damage was massive? And they kept on doing the polluting? This isn't a utopia where things always work out for those fighting to protect the environment.

    Hell, even when heavy polluters are fined, they continue to dump. And now, people have been limited on their ability to bring class action lawsuits against such things. Which means each of those less financially sound people have to hire a lawyer each to sue the big polluter who can simply afford the best team of lawyers to back them up.

    You basically are saying that it doesn't matter if the environment is damaged, so long as people are free to do whatever they wish. That is simply a horribly irresponsible position that refuses to recognize that a single person can do a lot of damage to the environment and money gives people power. These two factors are major reasons why we need laws in place to limit that.

    Fines are just socialism without a Cause; the right wing offers too much competition, why waste our time.

    Because that has never in history actually prevented the behavior. This is what happens when you blindly apply ideology. “The market will just fix it” is middle school thinking. The real world doesn’t work that way.
