Letter about Heartland

A class action suit that articulates enforced laws against governments and industries that create, condone then euphemize the effects of pollution could protect people from pernicious exploitation of their physical and psychological environments.

The United States Govern-ment and large corporations prioritize always religious belief over scientific truth/practices and profit over health. They erroneously interpret assertive behavior into these dysfunctional ideas ideas that the Preston City Council and Minnesota State Legislature endorse with impunity.

The Preston City Council connived secretly into law the allowance of previous pollution violations from organizations like General Electric, U.S. Steel and oil conglomerates. They did so to accommodate Heartland's emission demands; both claim constraint of free trade, but it is simple fear mongering and pandering of law designed to fit Heartland's waste needs. Local corporate behemoths like Hormel, IBM, Mayo Clinic and Pro Corn claimed also detrimental effects on local and regional economies if government did not write laws favorable to their wishes of excessive toxic emission what drivel.

Bob Maust's investors were then "free" to construct strategies from this digressive behavior, but in the first place laws should not be fictionalized or reworded to extenuate economic desires, specially when those desires risk human life.

Government and industry create always a culture where elite people are not required to respect or understand basic human values and interactions that sustain simple qualities of living organisms. The City Council's and Heartland's errant manipulation of law bereft Fillmore County of a social structure that can stop the creation and broadcast of pollutants and has left each organization "free" to fictionalize that pollutants are harmless. Their argument of allowable levels is ridiculous considering the toxicity.

New and clean fuels should have been a government and industry priority 40 years ago, instead George Bush's Republican Congress increased allowable toxic emissions. Bob Maust's investment group similarly dissuades the political community and public with egregious industrial propaganda and insists on their "right to pollute." It is not a "right."
