So the EPA should be able to make rules and then say," Because...this". What is this? No one knows.

Making rules, regulations and public police is serious business and should be done open and above board.If you want to restrict or prohibit something, you should have real science, available science to back it up. All this garbage about privacy is just that. Scientific studies are done all the time protecting the patient's info and is perfectly acceptable science.

I think they don't want to be forced to show their work...just write down "the answer".

Then there is the whole Fucking Common Sense thing about Government Employees using Government emails to discuss Government business.

Seems like it's a good opportunity to create a new, well deserved law that any correspondence about government business, policy or even what color you want your office painted needs to be done on a government email account.

Parts that positively cannot be assembled in improper order will be.
