    Seems like just a couple of months ago, they decided to ban woods stoves.
    Now if you piss in your back yard, they want to call it a wetland and claim jurisdiction...

    Looks like Attorney General Abbott is going to have to file a couple more lawsuits on his way to the Governor's mansion.

    As someone who has dealt with the EPA for over 30 years, I can tell you that this is not unusual. In the Northeast, places that are only wet right after the snow melts are "wetlands" and streams that only have water in the spring - and only have fish when a truckload is dumped into them - are protected fishing waters. It's crazy.

    The current EPA administration is especially scary. These are hard-core Commies and they are not only anti-industry, they are also anti-individual rights. ("The State is all and all is for the State.") And they have used their authority to try to strangle Texas for having the gall to vote against their beloved Commie-in-Chief.

    I have started before about the far reaching implications of this kind of thing. Once they control your pond, then they can go after rain collection systems. There have already been instances of this in other parts of the world. It is all about control and once they control the water, we are screwed.

    Yup, any run off that could possibly make it's way to a ditch or eventually find it's way to a stream of lake would be regulated.

    I have a creek that is dry 11 months of the year about 800 yrds behind my house on the neighbors property. It eventually feeds in to a small lake.

    It wouldn't take much for them to say I am effecting that creek and suddenly I'm in violation and facing huge fines. The EPA could be used in a similar role as the IRS. Get out of line, and they can find something to use to bankrupt you.


    Don't get me wrong, I love to hunt, fishing, I love to watch deer, jackrabbits, and any number of animals just doing their thing. Just a walk through the woods is a wonderful thing Irresponsibility in these areas and trashing the environment piss is me off to no end, but the EPA shouldn't be trusted with this kind of authority.

    Congress abdicated their rule making powers to the EPA.

    We now have ethanol in our gasoline which diminishes fuel economy for vehicles and wrecks our yard machines.

    U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar refuses to respond to any and all correspondence about alcohol in fuels, and low sulfur diesel.

    Nixon unleashed a monster upon our Land and not one Democrat or Republican since has put their ass on the line to abolish this abomination.
