Never content to take away your freedoms regarding the way you drive or the cars you buy, the nimroots that believe man is the fault of ever single event on Earth, have decided there is an even more insidious, disastrous, inhuman, unconstitutional, US separationsistic device that needs to be dealt with. And NOW!!
This device is something that some people use on a weekly basis. Some people even make a living using these devices. This is a device that has made our lives much more easier and safer. It has even led to increased property values. And, I will accede that this device is also the bane of people who enjoy their sleep.
Can you guess what it is before you click below the fold???
No? Ok. Go ahead and click away.

The long-awaited regulation [Ed: yeah, by the green nutjobs] requires a 35 percent reduction in emissions from new lawn and garden equipment beginning in 2011. Big emission reductions are also required for speedboats and other recreational watercraft, beginning in 2010.

Environmentalists welcomed the regulation, which applies to lawn care engines under 25 horsepower and to a full range of gas-powered personal watercraft. The rule requires a 70 percent reduction in emissions from recreational watercraft.
Twelve states, New York City and the District of Columbia are suing the Environmental Protection Agency, claiming the Bush administration has failed to rein in emissions from oil refineries. [Ed: Mommy, make them stop! waaa]
New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said Monday the suit is aimed at forcing the EPA to adopt new regulations to reduce oil industry pollution that contributes to global warming.[Ed: the writer pushing that belief system again]
