Why I Hate Enviro-Weenies

Exactly how much Libtard beratement could you stand in this situation?

Here is a response from one trucker in the Odie Outback I believe.

Dust in the Wind: Time for the EPA to Go!
by Newt Gingrich

The key to eliminating our oppressive regulatory regime is simply to replace the existing bureaucracy rather than try to reform it. The current systems are so entrenched that we need to start over with new organizations and new people.

Overbearing bureaucrats are especially prominent at the Environmental Protection Agency. The arrogance, economic ignorance, and dictatorial attitude of the current organization are well known throughout much of America.

The EPA bullies and dictates to businesses, small towns, and states. It routinely tells states what they have to do and then claims not to be at fault when the states tell local communities and businesses they must comply.

The EPA has become a clear example of "bureaucratic socialism"—an ingenious adaptation of European socialism.

Under "bureaucratic socialism," you get to own your company, but federal bureaucrats tell you how to run it.

Two recent events surrounding the rumors of stiffening "dust regulation," which led to a new height of anger against the bureaucrats, highlight the need to replace the EPA with a brand new Environmental Solutions Agency.

In a speech last week, EPA Administrator Linda Jackson acknowledged the anger when she said people referred to her officials as "jack-booted thugs."

What was amazing about her comments was her complete inability to ask why people would use terms like "jack-booted thugs" to describe the agency's behavior. She exhibited a total unwillingness to listen to her critics or try to understand their frustration.

Thanks, Ronald Reagan!
