The two photos plainly show how #moleg Legislators are failing the people of Missouri when it comes to dirty energy money polluting our Great State.
I'm ashamed (to be perfectly honest) to live in a state that not only doesn't care for the welfare of its citizens and our basic rights of equality in everything. (#Ferguson is a perfect example)
These freedoms to live a prosperous and healthy lives are robbed from every Missourian by the big business tyrants ruling the elected leaders and corrupting the welfare of its inhabitants.
This forces the public to live in a modern day feudal system- paying homage to our "Big Business Overlord's" at the State Capital in Jefferson City, who control the Missouri Legislature Puppets. (Example #KochBrothers and their dirty coal pollution)
I've always felt the Laws and Regulations of Missouri are like living 10 years behind the progressive states on the coasts. And the above photos highlight a perfect example of how Missouri lags behind other states.
Every state that borders Missouri ranks higher than we do for energy efficiency. And per the Dept of Energy's latest ruling on dirty coal pollution standards. Missouri will soon be playing catch up and could be on the hook (monitary law suites from other surrounding states) for all the pollution it creates.
Instead of being 'proactive' and addressing issues of creating a healthy environment for our state. Our State Leaders would rather continue on the #dirtyenergy business as usual. The dire consequences of increased health, livelihood, and safety issues caused by pollution will not go away on their own.
The question is: Will we continue down this path or will the citizens proactively gain the upper hand. When Legislators fail the citizens, the only choice is for the public is to save itself.
