The Environmental Protection Agency is the reason that this state is in the state of despair that it is in. If you think for a moment that the EPA is here for the protection of the environment, you truly are delinquent in smarts. They have one purpose and one purpose only and that is to guarantee their livelihood. They used to do common sense-type environmental protection but when it became apparent that they would have to start downsizing their organization they felt the “need to impede” and now they are a powerful independent organization that can and do anything they like.
Our government has oversight committees for everything except for the things that they should be overseeing. They put blinders on as long as they can keep getting the backing of an organization like Sierra Fund and its associations; EPA has overstepped its calling and we as a nation are paying the price.
