What About the EPA?
Posted by Michael Boldin
Writes Jeff Matthews:
Can you believe these clowns now claim it is within their jurisdiction to regulate CO2 because it is a dangerous gas? Good God! CO2? In that event, so is water, oxygen, …. err…. what wouldn’t be on the dangerous list?
My thoughts on the EPA? They couldn’t be summed up any better than Lew Rockwell did in his March 1990 commentary for the “Free Market” from the Mises Institute:
The EPA – a quintessential big business welfare agency – was founded by Richard Nixon through an unconstitutional executive order. Ever since then, it has achieved bureaucratic success by handing out special-interest construction contracts while catering to the most anti-capitalist, indeed anti-human, forces in our society. The EPA should be dismantled, not exalted. We have yet to learn that the environmental vision is just as impossible as the socialist one, and just as dangerous in the attempt.
