EPA Shakedown : It's All About The Green
The EPA is a grotesque beast that initially setup to protect us is now devouring American businesses. It clearly and routinely violates the 8th ammendment to the Constitution.
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.One of the most unfortunate things about this agency is that fines are based off of junk science : anthropomorphic climate change, CO2 is a pollutant, animals are more important than people, swamps ( wetlands ) are precious. Many stories also recount fines for back years violations without warnings ever submitted, otherwise known as "the EPA lost the paperwork and will fine you for not checking up on them."
The EPA is a glorious example of government run amok.
