Has the Federal Government Done Anything to Improve Life in the U.S.A?...YES.: One Answer:

Since 1970, implementation of the Clean Air Act and technological advances from American innovators have dramatically improved air quality in the U.S. Since that time, the combined emissions of criteria and precursor pollutants have dropped by 77%.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

You can find this answer by asking Google, "Has the Federal Government Improved Air Quality in the U.S.A.?

Quote: ................................................

"One of the best pieces of evidence supporting the Environmental Kuznets Curve and the Environmental Transition Hypothesis can be seen in air pollution in the United States. As the chart below shows, between 1970 and 2018, U.S. gross domestic product increased 275 percent, vehicle miles traveled increased 191 percent, energy consumption increased 49 percent, and U.S. population increased by 60 percent. During the same time period, total emissions of the six principal air pollutants dropped by 74 percent."

Another Question....Who signed the first.."Clean Air Law" in 1970?"............I didn't know this crook did anything to help anyone.

............................President Richard Nixon.....................................................................................
The Clean Air Act was signed by President Richard Nixon on December 31, 1970 to foster the growth of a strong American economy and industry while improving human health and the environment..

DeSantis says he would eliminate four federal agencies if elected president

Source: Yahoo Finance

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday that if he is elected president he would seek to close four federal agencies as part of an effort to reduce the size of government.

"We would do Education, we would do Commerce, we'd do Energy, and we would do IRS," DeSantis said in an interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum when he was asked whether he favored closing any agencies.

"If Congress will work with me on doing that, we'll be able to reduce the size and scope of government," he added. "If Congress won't go that far, I'm going to use those agencies to push back against woke ideology and against the leftism that we see creeping into all institutions of American life."

DeSantis’ campaign didn't immediately respond to a request for further details about his remarks.

DeSantis has sought to distinguish himself from Republican front-runner Donald Trump, in part by moving further to the right of the former president on a variety of issues. On

If we all get out and vote, DeSantis just lost any chances of getting elected to anything, anytime, anywhere! Read the 2nd paragraph, and see the light about DeSantis!!

Donald Trump has told one too many lies..30% doesn't win an election. Yes, in my opinion,

Trump is down to 30% support in the total population. Some will vote for him, and some won't vote for Donald Trump.

When it comes to any election, Donald Trump will lose. It is that simple.

Bad Air Quality in Chicago....National Map of Air Quality around the Country

Note: by Adjusting the Map, you can tell the exact air quality wherever you live. Just adjust the map to the section of the
country you live in. Then adjust it further, so you can see the exact air quality in the exact place where you live. An
incredible map of the U.S.A. Brought to you by the Enviornmental Protection Agency....EPA... .(a branch of the federal government.) The map is named ..."Air Now"

(parts of Illinois , not where I live,) are currently ..."VERY UNHEALTHY"....2:25 pm..Central Time...
The government, Enviornmental Protection Agency, updates the map every hour so an individual can see
how the air improves, or gets worse by the hour....Yes, we pay for the map by paying for ......"Federal Income Taxes"
Just like we pay for Yellowstone National Park...Have You ever been to Yellowstone National Park? Quite a show...


If you haven't been there, it is worth going in my opinion.

A note about U.S. History.. The deal in makiong the "Constitution of the U.S." was that one house of

the legislature would have equal representation for all states..(The Senate) and one house would be
based on population ...(House of Representative)..It was a deal that helped to pass the new set of laws The
Constitution
to run the country, as the previous set of laws (Articles of Confederation) did not work to get laws passed.

..........Two houses of legislation..a law needed to pass both houses if it were to be a "National Law"......
If the "Two House System" had not have been promoted by the backers of the "Constitution" it was likely
that the new set of laws, The Constitution of the U.S." would NOT have been passed. The old system,
The Articles of Confederation had many negatives. Most laws were not passed, representation was not fair,
and so on and so on.

........The new system , The U.S. Constitution met up with one serious problem. " THAT PROBLEM WAS THE
CIVIL WAR"...tHAT ONE CAUSED THE DEATHS OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

..........That problem happened over 160 years ago. Some other problems were solved with so such thing ever happening
again. Women got their right to vote, 18 year olds got their right to vote. Racial Issues were taken care of, many ecomomic problems were solved (social security, food stamps, tax brakes for poor and large families, unemploymemt compensation,...etc, etc, etc, etc.

Guess What? I used to teach U.S. History...and I had to teach "The Constituion" because it was mandated by the
School Board....(Chicago Public Schools)....You would not believe what I saw teaching in the Chicago Public Schools for
over 30 years..................But that is for another time, and another place...........

About Stuart G

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.
