    You have to wonder how much money these EPA fools have cost society.

    And their supposed ‘good intentions’ are no excuse for their stupidity.

      Not just money. The result reduction in basic food-stuffs borders on the criminal.

    Not just money, food for hungry and poor people. In time this will be seen as an indictment just as progressives’ embrace of eugenics and segregation is now.

      Segregation was strongest in the conservative south, with Jim Crow and routine lynchings. Racism was part of Southern Baptist theology until quite recently. And they’re no progressives.

        And yet, when MLK and crew went north to Chicago, they said it was “a whole ‘nother level of racism.”

          Yeah. No Bubba sheriffs to sic the dogs on ’em.

    Where in the Constitution is the Federal Authority for this invasive agency granted? It certainly tramples all over States rights and the 10th amendment.

  • S.C. Schwarz

    Once the Supreme Court agreed that CO2 was required to be regulated under the Clean Air Act the EPA, in essence, gained complete authority over the US economy. The only limitation is political: If the EPA, an executive agency under the control of the president, goes so far that a Republican president, a Republican house, and a 60 seat Republican majority in the Senate, are elected, then the CAA could be amended. Short of that Congress, the Constitution and the courts are irrelevant. As long as they’re smart, and move slowly, they’ve won.

    Game over.
