Stop the EPA's Attack on Property Rights
Americans for Prosperty ^ | July 26, 2011 | Phil Kerpen

Posted on 07/26/2011 12:01:25 PM PDT by Twotone

President Obama wants to control all the land and all the water in the United States.

Legislation that would have deleted the word "navigable" from the federal Clean Water Act and given the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers jurisdiction over every drop of moisture in the country crashed and burned last Congress, ending the 36-year congressional career of its lead sponsor, Jim Oberstar, in the process.

But Obama's EPA, as usual, won't take no for an answer, and is now attempting to ignore two Supreme Court decisions, commonsense, and the American people and vastly expand federal Clean Water Act jurisdiction via a guidance document. A bipartisan group of 170 members of Congress told them not to, but they are doing it anyway.

If the EPA and Army Corps succeed, they can exercise effective control over all land and water in the United States. The green groups are fired up and pouring comments into the docket supporting this outrageous power grab, and we need to fight back.

Click here to tell the EPA and the Army Corps to STOP their back door assault on private property rights:

The docket closes on July 31st, so there is no time to spare. Please take action today!

Sincerely,

Phil Kerpen Vice President, Policy Americans for Prosperity

The link goes to the AFP’s site where you can send an email to the EPA. You can use the existing letter, or add your own comments.

Apparently the EPA is afraid. They’re running a new ad in my area warning that they’re the only thing preventing big bad corporations from poisoning babies.

EPA Soldier: I’m afraid we lost them, sir.
Cargill: Damn it! Well, then you find ‘em, and you get ‘em back in the dome! And to make sure nobody else gets out, I want roving death squads around the perimeter 24-7! I want 10,000 tough guys, and I want 10,000 soft guys to make the tough guys look tougher! And here’s how I want them arranged: tough, soft, tough, tough, soft, tough, soft, soft, tough, tough, soft, soft, tough, soft, tough, soft!
[pause]
Soldier: Sir, I’m afraid you’ve gone mad with power.
Cargill: Of course I have! Have you ever tried going mad without power? It’s boring, no one listens to you!

I’m not to worried about guidance docs. The EPA has lost two different lawsuits recently by trying to treat these as real regulations.

the fact that the EPA is running ads itself is frightening. That means they are selling their ideology and that they have paid propogandists and marketers within what really should be a purely scientific organization.

Not to mention the fact that baby food isn’t under EPA jurisdiction. Its under the jurisdiction of the FDA which is also an out of control agency.

The only way to stop the EPA is to shut it down. All in favor say aye.

Here’s the ad. It appears to be specific to Michigan.

That add said that the EPA was cleaning the air. That is false advertising. The EPA does not clean shinola. There mere demand that others do the “cleaning” at the point of a gun.

The head of the EPA is a progressive and it’s employees are progressives. They, believing that the end justifies the means, will lie. Just as they have lied before, Freon 12.

The EPA needs to be told...NO!

Yes and I'm still certain that some one at EPA took DuPont money on that deal.
