What. The. Ever-loving. F*ck.
It appears that the Federal Government, in their infinite wisdom, has decided to create "Environmental Justice Teams," for the purpose of "avoid[ing] placing disproportionately high and adverse effects on
the human health and environment of minority or low-income populations."
Yes, folks, you read that right. If you're a member of "minority or low-income populations," you now get special treatment from the government protecting you from those big bad companies who want to give you jobs. And not by the EPA, oh no- they're too mamby pamby. Why, since they don't even have their own SWAT Teams, they're not even as tough as the Department of Education. No, we have to involve the Department of Orwellian Nightmare, er, Homeland Security.
The same people who brought you the TSA strip-searching a 4 year old girl, now want to get involved in "environmental justice."
Go read that whole thing. It's a disgusting example of government over-reach and bureaucratic bloat. And our so-called "Representatives" have, thus far, proposed nothing to stop it.
It's time for the States to stand up. Please, Governors and State Legislatures: for the good of the People and for our continued liberty, please re-assert your authority.
