      These Republitards act all big and tough when it comes to the environment, but watch as these pussies turn eco and green as soon as their children or wives start getting cancer from some Big Boss Chemical Company pouring chemicals into their aquifer. Then again a lot of them are so stupid, they wouldn’t even figure it out and would just die never knowing.
