Legislating Farm Dust


Here's one for the books...or should I be saying "Here's another one for the books!!!"

I received this from my congressman in Washington D.C. today. Are they kidding with this crap? This is the kind of stuff we are paying our congressmen and EPA employees to spend time with??? Those guys get more and more annoying as time goes on.

Quote:
For more than a year, I've urged the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to make clear that it will not regulate farm dust, and I'm pleased to report today that EPA has done just that. Anyone whoís been on a farm knows dust is inherent to agriculture, and today not just common sense but EPAís own scientific evidence finally prevailed. It took the very real threat of my legislation passing to get EPA on the record, but farmers and ranchers can finally breathe a huge sigh of relief knowing they no longer have to worry about this unnecessary, burdensome regulation. I will continue to monitor EPA and wonít hesitate to again press for a vote if the agency reissues a recommendation to regulate farm dust. I invite you to click on the link below to hear more:
I don't particularly like the amount of leaves that fall in my yard from trees this time of year. I wonder if there is something they could do to outlaw that problem?

What a frigging bunch of over-paid dorks!!!

Yow and back then they were too busy with keeping their whores and horses groomed to worry about trying to outlaw dirt.

These guys are headed right down the "toilet bowl" and they just don't seem to get it.

Yes I think most of us, who live in the Midwest, have heard of it.

Some (**cough** Bud **cough**) were not only alive during the Dust Bowl, but were involved in starting it!

Remember, the EPA once considered requiring collection devices on cow butts to collect methane. And you would be surprised they wanted to regulate dust?

...and the geniuses were going to "tax" farmers - per bovine butt-hole - for ruining the earth's atmosphere.

The power of the EPA needs to be severely curtailed.

this is not about dust at all. Its about big agriculture corporations trying to push the small private farms out through lobbying. How can a small farm survive if they have to pay for the dust they generate. We all know corporations get away with a lot, but when a small farmer gets slapped w/ a 50,000 fine for dust deemed to be in excess well there goes his profit for the year and bammo another one bites the dust. We have to keep a close eye on our government and its shady agendas or we will lose our freedom. I'm glad that your congressman cares about the people but the sad truth is that most congressmen are owned.

Congress better be careful passing taxes for being butt-holes.

Does he really give a diddly damn about "the people" or is he running for re-election? My guess is the later!

I agree. Twas the first thing I thought when I read the article. Ridiculous, absurd, outlandish and just plain stupid that they'd even try that.

My two bloOd red cents.
