    This is FUBB...

    Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) took to the Senate floor today to draw attention to a video of a top EPA official saying the EPA’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies - just as the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience.

    Inhofe quoted a little-watched video from 2010 of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies.

    “It’s a deterrent factor,” Armendariz said, explaining that the EPA is following the Romans’ philosophy for subjugating conquered villages.

    “Not long after Administrator Armendariz made these comments in 2010, EPA targeted US natural gas producers in Pennsylvania, Texas and Wyoming.

    “In all three of these cases, EPA initially made headline-grabbing statements either insinuating or proclaiming outright that the use of hydraulic fracturing by American energy producers was the cause of water contamination, but in each case their comments were premature at best – and despite their most valiant efforts, they have been unable to find any sound scientific evidence to make this link.”


    This Obama administration is making a mockery of our country from top to bottom. That in itself isn't as frightening to me as the untold millions of Americans that eat this shit up, and then come November they'll line up for more.

    It's a wonder that Armendariz still has a job. Hell, he probably got a promotion and a raise.

    This seems to be Obama's modus operandi... set us up like bowling pins then knock us down. Manipulate public opinion, enact nonsensical legislation, then procede to dismantle commerce.
    He's such a whore.

    The EPA was founded on the political DDT lie. Why would anyone believe they are not the political tool of the administration.

    The obama administration is making a mockery of our country??? You mean the preezy of the united steezy?

    You should listen to the president, or as I like to call him, the Preezy of the United Steezy,' said Fallon, who also dubbed the president 'the Barack Ness Monster' and 'the Potus with the mostest', as he interjected during the slow jam.

    Well, at least we know "environmental protection" is an area the federal government is required to oversee. It's right there in the enumerated powers, right? :eek:
