The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is supposed to be for the purpose of helping to improve the environment here in the U.S.
Ignore the fact they recently caused millions of gallons of mining waste to be dumped into Colorado’s rivers… let’s assume for a moment they’re actually trying to protect the environment.
That being the case, one has to wonder why they would need to purchase these kinds of military equipment:
- body armor
- camouflage equipment
- night-vision goggles
Add in “normal” things like the use of spy planes to ensure that farmers are compliant.
Why does the EPA need this type of military grade equipment? Who are they trying to ensure that they can handle?
Unless the EPA is just another excuse to run our lives, and, therefore, compliance is mandatory “for our own good” in the same way that complying with Stalin was for the good of the people in the Soviet Union.
If the EPA is really about protecting the environment, how about they stop driving trucks around and flying planes over innocent people to ensure compliance. Sounds like they are wasting a lot of fossil fuels and putting off a lot of harmful exhaust waste that would damage the environment.
One would think that is what their thinking would be. Apparently, though, for them it appears to be just another excuse to police our lives.
What do you think: Does it make sense for the EPA to be armed like a SWAT team or not? Sound off below.
