Texas Fight! What Other States Can Learn from Texas vs U.S. EPA
Canada Free Press ^ | August 12, 2010 | Daren Bakst

Posted on 08/12/2010 5:38:54 PM PDT by Need4Truth

Texas is fighting back against the heavy hand of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). All Americans should be proud of—and other states should take note of—not just the spirit but the technical arguments of the Lone Star revolt.

A recent letter to the EPA by both the state’s Attorney General and the Chairman of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality made it absolutely clear that the state is not going to comply with the EPA’s regulations on the permitting of greenhouse gas emissions.

Beam me to Planet Gore !
EPA: An unelected, flunky bureaucracy populated with radical, no-growth, Marxist, environmental nut-jobs wielding rogue powers based in junk science. A cancer on the private sector. Ultimately, the EPA is not about the environment. It is about legislating from the Executive Branch in Soviet Agency style. It has the convenient unconstitutional feature of allowing the Obama Administration to pursue an extreme global warming agenda, to make energy prices necessarily sky-rocket, and gain sweeping regulatory control over the US economy without a politically difficult vote in congress.

Action against EPA abuse of power by private enterprise:

Action against EPA abuse of power by state/federal government:

Action in support of EPA abuse of power:


☆☆ States Officially Rejecting Anthropogenic Global Warming

☆ Utah
☆ Arizona

Let’s take the Lone Star Revolt even further - divorce Washington. Then we won’t have to put up with this.

Sooner or later, someone is going to have to just stand up and say “NO” to the Feds. Might as well be Texas, might as well be now.

There is nothing in the US Constitution that permits the federal govt to usurp the sovereignty of the state of texas in controlling its internal matters.

I for one urge out state officials to just ignore what the EPA says.

after all, what can the EPA do?

The EPA could be eliminated and the states could deal with environmental issues on their own.

Amen! If they did, wouldn’t Arizona join in? Perhaps several other states? I’d rally to their support!

I like the Texas description for carbon dioxide:

a uniformly distributed trace, constituent of clean air, vital to all life, that is emitted by all productive activities on Earth.

It's time for the EPA and environmentalists to prove CO2 is a pollutant.

So....um....which concourse in DFW is the smoking lounge on?

Oh, yeah ... there isn’t one. Free, my tail.

You think those guys at the Alamo smoked?

What would they think of your little TX nanny-state?

I actually asked that of the “Airport Ambassador” at DFW this morning. He said, we don’t care, we will controll our neighbors all we want!

I hightailed it back to a free state - VA.

I don't get it.

Why is our Governor passing letters to Obama begging him to send troops to secure our border. We have the Texas National Guard. Lets use our own troops to secure the border.

The EPA should be defunded.

I think we should insist that congress refuses to pass a budget if that means the military has no money, so be it I want a Federal government shut down.

Liberty is more important then military preparedness.

Besides we still have the State forces, so its not like we will be defenseless.
Eventually the liberals will crack and allow us to get rid of the education department and the EPA, and the health-care bill.

But until then No discretionary spending peroid!

Meanwhile in this shut down we will be pushing our states to retake ground so by the time the Federal government has come out of its shutdown we will already have secured control and won’t need them.

Then comes the isolation of the socialist states, and socialist ideologies will be allowed to burn themselves out locally as they attempt to enslave their people.
