I'm not gonna sit here and try to guess at this magical framework of yours.

What is the framework?

And we don't even know how you think they should deal with it.

It doesn't even come close to providing a slightly coherent idea of what the EPA's role should be.

That's an example, not a definition. Your definition was pretty much "stop bad things from happening."

I wonder, if you had the honesty to try for an actual answer, if you would even have one. If there is even any actual coherent idea of what the EPA is and what it's supposed to do, or what it should be supposed to do.

So far, the only objective criteria you have given us for how you arrive at your opinions is what you referred to as "real news," which we can only assume is some news network or another.

can we agree that it is true that there are superfund sites and that the epa has been tasked with administering in some way the cleanup of those sites?
