We're in the Fire Swamp

This is the best description of the stay I’ve seen. And it should answer many of the questions people have about it.

There are people working to overturn the stay and remove Nancy Nord from her position at the Comission. Many of these are consumer groups, but the Energy and Commerce Committee also is working toward this goal. Letters between Energy and Commerce Committee chairs and Commission officials are flying. I am not sure the stay will actually stand. A letter was written from the Committee to President Obama, and from reading that letter I certainly hope that is not the only point of view President Obama hears. I hope that the promises made by are fulfilled to give the president a more balanced view of the issues and consequences of CPSIA. Or that he seeks some other perspective besides the Committee’s in order to make decisions.

We are still in the middle of the Fire Swamp. We’re learning a lot about the terrors of the Fire Swamp and we have definite confirmation that the R.O.U.S.s (Rodents of Unusual Size) exist.

What you could be doing to help:
Contact your Senators and ask them to support the DeMint bill
Work on securing information about your supplies and/or move forward with a reasonable testing program in case the stay is overturned
