CSmonitor reports..."The 26 "shutdown orders" included one ticket seller, nine active bus companies, and 13 companies that had already been ordered to halt operations, but had continued anyway, FMCSA said. Also included were three other companies that were in the process of applying for authority to operate.
But the apparent main targets of the year-long investigation were three companies: Apex Bus Inc., I-95 Coach Inc., and New Century Travel Inc., umbrella companies that oversaw "a broad network of other bus companies," according to the FMCSA "out of service" orders against the companies. FMCSA Administrator Anne Ferro said in a statement, "The egregious acts of these carriers put the unsuspecting public at risk and they must be removed from our highways immediately.”
If the republicans have their way, these bus companies would not have to shut down because the regulations and laws to protect people's lives would be made void, with their 'smaller government' debt reducing, pro business agenda.
Erin Brokovich is investigating the strange twitching illness which bears a strong resemblance to Tourette syndrome.
ABC News writes..."Nearly two dozen people, including one 36-year-old, in the upstate New York village of LeRoy are now experiencing uncontrollable tics, seizures and outbursts they might have been caused by a chemical spill in the town more than 40 years ago."
Erin said on a radio interview today that she has gotten information that there are at least six Gas Fracking wells in the area, this was previously unknown information that may prove to have some realtime affects pertaining to this disturbing incident in LeRoy. She also admitted that the afflicted kids also swam in a pond that was in the old chemical spill area and the kids' school was built on a swamp using backfill soil from the chemical spill site.
If the republicans have their way the chemical companies who operate outside the law and cause pollution and cause accidents that damage people in various ways and afflict people with all sorts of diseases and even kill people, will be allowed to operate without any meaningful regulations to control their law breaking.
Citibank was charged with giving bad loans and hiding them from the authorities.
Bloomberg reports... "Four years after rotten mortgages helped trigger a global financial crisis, Sherry Hunt said her Citigroup Inc. quality-control team was still finding flaws in new loans that included altered tax forms, straw buyers and borrowers who listed fictitious employers.
Instead of reporting the defects to the Federal Housing Administration, the bank saddled the agency with losses by falsely declaring the loans fit for its federal insurance program, according to a complaint filed yesterday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan. Citigroup agreed to pay $158.3 million to settle the claims, and admitted that it certified loans for FHA backing that didn’t qualify"
If the republicans have their way, banks will continue to be encouraged to operate without the necessary regulations needed to keep our economy on a steady footing. This is the same banking practices that caused the recession we now try to recover from.
Please make sure the republicans don't get their way in the Presidential elections, because if they get their way, we will end up being a much worse country than what you would like your kids to inherit. Protect your kids...vote against the republican agenda.
