Help Get the 'Rogue' EPA Back Under Control

More than 6,000 people have signed a petition
crafted by The Heartland Institute demanding that Congress “rein in the
Environmental Protection Agency” through deep cuts in the size, power,
and cost of the agency. Join the fight to rein in this economy- and
freedom-crushing agency by adding your name to the petition.

According to the Citizen’s Petition to Rein in the Environmental Protection Agency,
EPA has “lost its war to scare America into giving [it] legislation
that would allow [it] to seize control of virtually all energy
production and use, [and is] perverting the Clean Air law to give
[itself] unprecedented powers to regulate American society.”

Let your voice be heard! Heartland will publicly present the petitions to Congress once the drive hits 10,000 signatures.

Joseph Bast, president of The Heartland
Institute, says that in the name of fighting global warming, EPA has
become a “rogue agency,” spending $9 billion in 2012 alone to shackle
individuals and businesses with expensive and wasteful compliance orders
and mandates without the consent of Congress. According to Bast:

"The toll EPA is now taking on our
country is staggering, putting hundreds of thousands of Americans out of
work at a time when millions of people are unemployed and our reliance
on foreign sources of energy threatens to compromise the nation’s
security. The solution is to rein in EPA through deep cuts in the size,
power, and cost of the agency. This can be done by Congress, through its
control over the government’s purse, or by a president willing to put
sound science and a strong economy ahead of the demands of environmental

Read the petition and background essay by The Heartland Institute here,
and share it with your friends and family. We can restore sound science
to the EPA if fellow members of the Common Sense Coalition bands
together and speaks with one loud voice!

Tell Congress to rein in a rogue, Put this on your wall and help

job-killing #EPA. &... us get to 10,000 signatures.

    Time to end this dictatorship. It is as bad as this. If an animal makes your property his home the government will come in and take your land away. They are also following Obama's block on coal.

    About time the truth Came Out!

    The Hartland Institute is a lobbying machine for big polluters and tobacco (Koch brothers and Exxon among others) (can you believe that they deny that it is possible to get a cancer through second hand smoking?) that has no interest in getting the truth out. They just want YOU to become their tool in chasing the corporate profits. Since EPA doesn't allow them to pollute as if there is no tomorrow, they are inventing stories that gullible people swallow and consequently pressure their congressmen.

    I you hate clean air and love dying of mercury poisoning, asthma or cancer, you should support them. Seriously, how can one claim second hand smoking is harmless? To promote that is to kill people. Is that what conservatism is? I know and hope it is not. Do not fall for their well funded marketing.

    Not my fault your life was miserable.

    And I think you could use all the advice you can get.

    And really, if you don't want to hear something you don't like to hear, I suggest you talk to your cat. In the meantime, I will feel free to answer anything I feel like.
    Funny how the freedom obsessed right wing extremists are the first to want to try to shut you down. Jere, you could be a nice guy in real life, but as soon as you have decided to become a tool for the Heritage Foundation, you have become an extremist. I hope you realize that.

    The EPA is out of control, the reason I was miserable in Mons, was because I was working at SHAPE, and that idiot General Wesley Clarke was "Running" things.

    You won't get any truth from the Heartland Institute. They're all about conning the public to protect the profits of billionaire industrialists.

    Bugger off.

    Truth inconvenient for you?

    You would not know the truth if it bit you in the tuches.

    And you know nothing about U.S. Politics so stay out of them. I have never commented on your "Little Island"

    Heartland are notorious for outrageously deceiving the public about anthropogenic global warming. Why would you trust them about anything at all? I don't see why you have such a problem with me expressing an opinion on the matter - why are you so defensive? Guilty conscience maybe?
  • jere.ch... Icarus 2012/08/24 19:49:06
    Once again I don't comment on your political situation or your Royals (HRH Harry for instance) , You are a twit. And ignorant about our politics. That is all. I am not a politician, so I have nothing to be defensive about, global warming is a hoax., Weather has had many changes usually in 30-50 year cycles, there is nothing sinister about it. Now please go play in your own sand box you are boring me to distraction .Bother me again and get Blocked (Or as you say over there (I have visited) get STUFFED.
