Video: EPA Official Says Their “Philosophy Of Enforcement” Is Sort Of Like Roman Crucifixions”
The EPA’s “philosophy of enforcement,” according to the agency’s Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, is “kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean: they’d go into little Turkish towns somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they’d run into, and they’d crucify them.”
With a regulatory attitude like that, no wonder the economy is stagnating.
It just goes to show that federal regulation, at least under President Obama, isn’t so much about rule of law and protecting the public as about domination and control. Because that’s why the Romans would crucify people. They wanted to terrify them into being compliant.Tags: big government, epa
