Re: [PPLetterpress] Re: Some matters
- This is what happens when you have legislators who are outside of the industry making regulations for that industry. They decide what's best for the industry based on the claims they hear or they think are being made regarding what's bad and good, wether there's any backing for the claims or not. They don't do anything to find out any of the facts themselves but simply take the word of what someone else tells them. I'd say 8 out of 10 times that someone is in a position to make a lot of money from the new regulations. If reps from the chemical companies were being brought before committees to testify about how hazardous their products were, we, as and industry, would have heard about. They're not but these new regulations are still going in place. Follow the money, that's where the real source of it will come from. Which in the end could be the same chemical companies make the products we all use and love now. It wouldn't be the first time a company has pushed for regulation which would outlaw the use of one product in favor of another, simply because there's more profit in the newer, though lesser liked, product.
Now you'll excuse me while I get my tin foil hat refitted. . . .
