Standard-Examiner: Wasatch Front Counties Get An 'F' For Air Quality

Sodden query: What is Ms. Spangler's Utah Department of Air Quality agenda?

Another Day in Paradise
Discomforting story on the Standard-Examiner front page this morning.  We'd suppose however that for those readers who suffer from lung ailments or heart conditions... or otherwise struggle breathing our Wasatch Front air, there are really no big surprises here at all:
According to this morning's story, "Donna Kemp Spangler, spokeswoman for the Utah Division of Air Quality (UDAQ, was quick to attack the report as politically motivated." The numbers are "skewed" and the American Lung Association "has an agenda," sez UDAQ flak-catcher and air pollution industry apologist Ms. Spangler.

Yesiree folks, the American Lung Association does have an agenda.  Ms. Spangler's entirely correct. We know this of course, because we checked their website, which spells out their "evil" agenda in black and white:
The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through Education, Advocacy and Research. With the generous support of the public, we are "Fighting for Air."
For over 100 years, the American Lung Association has led the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air. Today, our fight is more important than ever.
Whether it's searching for cures to lung diseases, keeping kids off tobacco or fighting for laws that protect the air we all breathe, the work of the American Lung Association helps to save lives every day.
That's the ALA agenda, folks. Scary, innit?

Sodden query: What is Ms. Spangler's own  UDAQ agenda? Kissing up to her boss Gary Herbert, perhaps?

It's obvious that the ALA is just another commie organization set up to screw the entrepreneurs in America, People Like Us.

Don't give us any crap. 

We've bought off all your US legislators already.

Welcome to the USA in  2012.

We own it; but we'll still allow you to live here.

If only, somehow, we could convince the government to be on the payroll of developers, so we could subsidize them with infrastructure at taxpayers expense.

Then, we as taxpayers, could contribute to the developer's profits, as they hit and run and move on.

If only that, we could continue to covert out environment into a sewer.

If only...
