Nobody likes to see pollution, especially when it comes from a massive accident such as an oil spill that contaminates water and land.
But if the spill of 3 million gallons of contaminated wastewater that was accidentally unleashed near Silverton, Colorado, in early August 2015 had to happen, aren’t you glad the Environmental Protection Agency was responsible for it?
For decades now, this self-righteous organization – consisting of unelected officials who have inexplicably been given ridiculous amounts of power – has been creating serious problems for plenty of law-abiding Americans.
The EPA, with the full blessing of President Obama and other liberals determined to save a planet that existed just fine for billions of years before they were born, has been on a borderline-psychotic mission to destroy the coal industry.
Along with it, they have ruined the careers of many Americans. In fact, entire communities have been devastated by unrealistic emissions regulations the EPA has established. But now it’s the EPA that has turned the Animas River bright orange with wastewater while investigating pollutants at the Gold King Mine.
So, do you think the EPA will fine itself millions or billions of dollars, as it would have tried to do to the operators of a coalmine or power plant if they had caused this damage?
Will the EPA publicly scold itself for this enormous transgression against nature? Will the EPA’s loyal followers stop hugging trees long enough to criticize the agency for this grievous offense?
Of course not. Other than a brief admission of its “mistake,” it will be business as usual for this sanctimonious agency.
Here’s a multiple-choice question for you. What would you like to see done to the EPA as payback for its wastewater spill in Colorado?
A.) Nothing. It was an honest mistake.
B.) Funding for the EPA should be reduced by 25 percent.
C.) The EPA commissioner should be fired.
D.) The EPA should be completely disbanded
