OSHhhhhh


As I was saying, the Bush Administration is gutting the various agencies in the U.S. Government. I was just reading this in The New York Times.

OSHA Leaves Worker Safety in Hands of Industry

”Since George W. Bush became president, OSHA has issued the fewest significant standards in its history, public health experts say. It has imposed only one major safety rule. The only significant health standard it issued was ordered by a federal court.”

I guess we can always hope that a disaster doesn’t strike our town (FEMA) or that we won’t eat any harmful food (FDA) or that an illegal alien doesn’t take our job (Border Patrol) or that our plane isn’t in an accident (FAA) or that our employer doesn’t decide it’s cheaper to have an unsafe workplace (OHSA.)

Sleep tight America (with your YELLOW DHS night light.)
