Good riddance, Lisa Jackson
Trib Live ^ | 12/29/12

Posted on 12/29/2012 9:19:44 PM PST by Libloather

Lisa Jackson is an object lesson in the manifest dangers of Leviathanism.

Ms. Jackson, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, is resigning in the new year. She took the reputation of the long-thuggish EPA to new lows, foisting new, damaging and ideologically based regulations on the nation, often by dictatorial fiat, with little transparency (think of her secret email accounts) and with no basis in science.

Jackson‘s mission never was to protect or to better the environment but to use environmental regulations to reorder...

The next one will probably be worse.

I would be happy if some brave soul would close down the EPA altogether. But I know it’s a pipe dream. Once a government bureaucracy is in place, it will never be dismantled.

It’s interesting to see how many of zero’s stalwart leftist puppets are abandoning him in his second term.

Which raises two questions:
1) How much worse will the replacement be?
2) What new tyranny will the replacements introduce??

Lisa Jackson must be another Obamatoad being thrown under the bus. The next EPA chief will bring about $8.00/gallon gasoline for sure.

Don’t rejoice all at once. The Obamabastard surely has an even worse creature lurking in the wings to replace her.

She must have done nothing in four years as I have never heard of her. Wow! Another loser picking up a paycheck with zero results. Good riddance. Obama - pick a worker next time if there are any in your circle of friends.

Well, there is a rumor it might be California’s “own” Mary Nichols. Trust me, she will make Lisa Jackson look good if she’s picked. She’s presently running the California Air Resources Board.

The EPA is the poster child for the every expanding power hungry government agency. It was originally tasked by the Clean Water Act to keep big companies from dumping toxic waste into the nation's water ways (something most people would agree was a reasonable goal), but through ever expanding internal regs and favorable court orders they have expanded their over site to the point they can regulate what you can do on your own property if you happen to have a puddle of water in your back yard, something the original law never intended.

Lisa Jackson is a better example on how weak Cryboehnor is as Speaker than Jackson is as a member of the US Politburo.

To #10. You’ve hit the problem on the head. There was nothing wrong with the original intent of the Clean Air and Clean Water acts, and the EPA in general.

However, they degenerated into a typical govt bureaucratic power grab and then they went ballistic with it.

The Sahkett Case is, hopefully going to castrate the EPA re the extension of the Wetlands sites definitions.

Other issues to watch out for include:
*attacks on the use of diesel fuel in trucks, trains and even aircraft, boats, etc. EPA will try to impose impossible to meet mileage and pollution limits.
*Extensions of the “navigable waters” definition further inland re the Rapano case.
*Imposing more “acid rain” rules when they have already reached their most effectiveness and now are on the downward side of any significant improvements.
*Attacking all coal mining re mercury pollution (a real issue) instead of working with industry to curb it. The idea is to destroy the coal industry and coal-based energy plants, and instead replace them with “green” crap.
* Promote ultra-expensive highspeed rail lines to nowhere like the California fiasco now under way.
* Promote more than 15% Ethanol usage though it can be destructive to certain types of engines and has already shot prices up on grain-based foods (my cat food has gone up over 20 cents per can, even for the cheap stuff, in the past few months, and the good stuff now in running in the 60’s cents to over a dollar. Same for bagged dry catfood.
* Destruction of the family farm through new lower levels of the “death tax” on real estate left for heirs. Might be a payoff to Big Agriculture (if they supported Obama and his criminal organization).

I’ve been involved in environmental cleanup cases for over 20 years and have seen the EPA knowlingly operate under horribly constructed laws until they were forced to reform them to some degree of legal sanity. How much damage the EPA has done to our economy is debatable but it is massive, and it negates the good that they have done.

Only a constricted EPA, run by someone who actually likes business, will help to revise this deliberately marxist planned crippling of our free enterprise system.

Only criminal convictions in the Solyndra and other “energy” company kickback cases will stop this type of economic criminal enterprise orchestrated by the White House and the marxist energy czars Obama had hired. THe Dept. of Energy needs a complete purge at the top as does the Dept. of Agriculture and Interior, to name a few.

The rot that is inside our government today at the highest levels in the worst I’ve ever seen since I first worked for the government in the 1960’s. The honest government worker is taking unjustified heat for what the Obama regime has imposed on them from above.

Getting rid of Jackson and Browner and Hansen and Holdren and Chu and Vilsack and Salazar is just the start. But we’ve got to start somewhere or our economy will implode, which is what Comrade Obama wants.

You haven't been paying attention. She had the 5 qualifications that obozo finds necessary.

1.She's black.

2. She hates Whitey

3. She's a marxist.

4. She's incompetent.

5. She hates America.

I never thought I’d see a more worthless, corrupt scumbag in charge of the EPA than Carol Browner.
Wow, was I wrong.

“The real destroyer will be put in place”

Agreed. She was just the warm-up act to see how far the envelope could be pushed. No one had the balls to stop her, so now it’s full steam ahead.

It’s the fault of “low information” Republican primary voters and John Boehner!

Not a peep about this on Reno local channels. Nothing I have seen on national network stuff, either.

I guess she already made her $$$$ in pay offs, and doesn’t need the job any longer? I don’t trust anyone in Gov’t any more.
