Jesus fucking Christ on a pogo stick.

I really, trully hate the EPA.

WASHINGTON – To better protect children, pets and wildlife, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that it is moving to ban the sale to residential consumers of the most toxic rat and mouse poisons, as well as most loose bait and pellet products. The agency is also requiring that all newly registered rat and mouse poisons marketed to residential consumers be enclosed in bait stations that render the pesticide inaccessible to children and pets. Wildlife that consume bait or poisoned rodents will also be protected by EPA’s actions.
“These changes are essential to reduce the thousands of accidental exposures of children that occur every year from rat and mouse control products and also to protect household pets,” said Steve Owens, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. “Today’s action will help keep our children and pets safe from these poisons.”
Thank you EPA.  Now I'll be overrun by mice and rats.  See, out here in the country they're more populous than women named Lucretia with 8 babies in line at the welfare office.  And because Lucretia is too busy burning her lip on her crack pipe to keep little D'Shuan from eating the green candy under the sink I have to lean to live in harmony with disease ridden shit factories.

Stop helping, EPA.  Please.

Stock up on 100 Watt Light bulbs, and ammo.

They've banned the former and have tried (and will try again) to ban the later.
