    This administration and the direction they're sending the EPA in is obsurd. Next thing you know they will try to regulate mother nature. Oh, wait..... That's what this is.

    No rain = dust = fines for farmers.

    EPA to Crack Down on Farm Dust - News9.com - Oklahoma City, OK - News, Weather, Video and Sports |

    OKLAHOMA CITY -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is considering a crackdown on farm dust, so senators have signed a letter addressing their concerns on the possible regulations.

    The letter dated July 23 to the EPA states, "If approved, would establish the most stringent and unparalleled regulation of dust in our nation's history." It further states, "We respect efforts for a clean and healthy environment, but not at the expense of common sense. These identified levels will be extremely burdensome for farmers and livestock producers to attain. Whether its livestock kicking up dust, soybeans being combined on a dry day in the fall, or driving a car down the gravel road, dust is a naturally occurring event."

    Think about the domino effect something as stupid as this could have. Some crops have a small harvest window. So if the ground is too dry to fit within govt guidelines half the crop could be lost by waiting too long to harvest it. Essentially driving up food prices or causing regional shortages.

    On a funny note can you just see a dust cop chasing a farmer down a dirt road? After the Chase he would have to ticket himself.

    Do you mean only rich people live in subdivisions near farms?

    I thought they all lived in Hollywood and DC.
