I don't know why you think I am waiting to disagree with something you specifically say.
Say what you want about how much the government interferes, but how can one say that what an individual puts into everyone's water is a personal choice when in fact it is the exact opposite.

This "i hate everything the government does" vibe is tiresome.

If people would only realize what phosphates and their overloading do to the river and streams, they wouldn't care about their dishes so much. I bet it is a lot cheaper to ban phosphates in detergents than it is to remove it at our wastewater facilities. Once it gets into the environment it is readily absorbed and stays in the the natural world which costs much to clean up which the gov't would foot the bill.
I'm glad they banned phosphates. Now if they would only ban other things that are wrecking the states water resources.

Guess we're not responsible enough to decide for ourselves....sheesh.
Obviously we did decide- it's call government.

Our dishes have not been affected- suggest the problem may be a lack of grease- elbow grease.

Other states also ban phospates, because like us they are subject to 'Liebig's Law of The Minimum'.

No, not passed by the Assembly, but a scientific reality first understood by Prof. Liebig back in the 50's, that states life/species density will depend upon the least available nutrient in the eco-system:

And that for aquatic systems is phospate.

In short, ya like clean water, ya love the phospate ban.

Here's something to ponder. Is there really such a thing as dirty dishes, or is it just a reflection of a dirty mind? Try thinking clean and pure thoughts, and I bet you'll see the difference reflected in your sparkling dishes!

Sure, the founding fathers would laugh. They would laugh at people complaining about the comforts of modern life and the opportunity to have clean water.

People complain about the government in general until their water is too polluted to drink, and then they complain the government is not doing enough.

Wouldn't it be nice if those people who want government oversight of our health could drink clean water, and those not wanting government oversight could drink the water they pollute? That would make life easy.

To be completely serious, the founding fathers were diverse in opinion. Some would be opposed to such oversight, and others for it.
