Farm Bureau warns about EPA takeover of waterways | Tulsa Beacon

dems took over the largesst business , health
now they've got their eyes on the 2nd largest business agriculture
the dems are never satisfied till they control everything.
if this succeeds starvation is on the way.

and I farmed 480 acres for 40 years

but here's the kicker the EPA or this administration will not make this same demand of food they import

I can't exactly fault the EPA for wanting to expand their scope by redefining navigable waterways.
A roadside ditch full of crude is not a pretty sight. I've seen it. Hell, I've waded in it.
Farm chemicals are even worse.
What's wrong with this picture is the fact that states already have in place rules and regulations for protecting waterways- be they rivers, streams, puddles, or the back 9 of a local golf course.
It's all about "primacy". When the EPA attempts to usrup primacy, the end result will be no different than if enforcement were left to individual states. What does result is a compounding of paperwork, delay, and fine structure that ultimately hampers a timely resolution.
I know a farmer in the northern ogden, utah area who left a headgate open by accident the water flooded the field, and gov. declared it a wet lands area. Took him 3 years to get his land back.
We need more gov't officials to monitor the gov't officials who blew the call on that one. Cost to taxpayers woulf only be a half mil a year! and that would be 5 new jobs!!
Here in Maine our TEA PARTY governor just merged the Agriculture department with the Environmental protection department.
BAsically his administrative moves means that the he thinks the environment is merely another kind of commodity.
What an idiot.
FYI: 62% of Maine's electorate did NOT vote for this guy.
Actually, it probably means he thinks environment nazis are too powerful already, and just stand in the way of real Americans trying to get some work done.
they took over health care
now they've got their eye on agribusines I guess they'll make agriculture a single payer system also
I have news for you – the government took over agriculture a LOOOOOG time ago.
