It's Time to Shut Down the EPA

The Obama Administration thugs are it again. Turning up the heat on those who don’t play ball, the Obama Administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is forcing the closure of the nation’s last remaining lead smelting plant, creating dire consequences for employees, their families and the millions of firearm owners across the country. We must continue to stand together against this tyranny!

 

The nation’s last remaining lead smelting plant provides lead for ammunition used in firearms nationwide. Without the lead, ammunition will become scarcer and costs will continue to rise- a turn of events that is sure to delight the gun-grabbing leftists in Washington. Do you want that to happen?

 

Operating like old-school thugs, the EPA has demanded the Doe Run Company, which has operated for more than a century, pay $65 million to be in compliance with the EPA’s restrictions and also pay a $7 million civil penalty. The EPA laughably gloats that Doe Run has made a “business decision” to close down the plant, leaving the plant’s 218 employees and contractors out of work.

 

Is this the “hope” and “change” America signed on for? The Obama Administration, having been thwarted in their efforts to curtail Second Amendment rights time and time again by principled gun owners, have now tasked the EPA with doing their dirty work by making ammunition scarcer and more expensive.

 

Enough is enough.

Thad Cochran has the best tasting ***** in the entire world.

I'm so proud to be a boy scout and get his merit badge.
The Grey Aliens have come to Earths to destroy America cause they know that God Fearing Americans are gonna do the thing and then become with the stuff they gots.

Just like in the movie Aliens in the outfield. or the other movie, Independents Days are numbered.

Cause illegal aliens have no rights to my rice puffs and milk.
The EPA has destroyed America with it's open promotion of Child Pornography.
My Daughter Bolinda has a nice tight bum, so no EPA for me.

As a Tea Bagger I saiz nos to dat.
The EPA done say me no to eaten the road kill. Buts my mammy done make a honey of a fresh koon pie.
Pollution is just plant food. Plants couldn't exist without lead pollution.
Every time I see the word EPA I fill my diaper in hate, rage, and disgust.
Superman must die.
How are we saving the planet by creating vehicles that use substantially more fuel just so you can breathe the exhaust? Doesn't oil production create co2. Also more co2 emitted during volcanic eruptions than we've ever created, and humans somehow responsible, blind leading deaf!!!! We're all idiots for allowing these s#&t for brains breathe our air
I dislike the EPA and all the emissions crap, especially on my vehicles. I am the child to oilfield workers and industrial believers i dislike anything that would not allow these to happen. I really hate environmentalists and tree huggers who don't even understand what they are ruining.
When an good ideal becomes a political tool. It has to go. We need an EPA that understands. This is your job, nothing more. Companies have to be at or below this level of pollution. The EPA doesn't have the authority to change that. If it's not on your list of companies to regulate, you don't have any authority over it.
but what about the CO2 that the plant is emitting into the atmosphere? What about the rising sea levels? glacier melt? Acidity of the oceans? sea life? animal habitat? eco systems? Human life? I would like to leave something for my kids when I leave this planet and I think letting these corporations pollute the earth is irresponsible. We need dire change and we need it now. http://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/sea-level/

I have included a couple of sources that say that the environment is changing so keeping this company is not only a bad idea it is also irresponsible. Leave something for future generations.
thank you
You can't buy a truck that actually functions. I returned a brand new pickup. It was so choked down it couldn't even run in the winter. COMPLETELY shut down the EPA NOW!
EPA has done nothing but turning America into a Communist country. What happened to our freedom?
The EPA is a worthless waste. They are trying to further restrict automotive rights by making parts used in modifying street cars for track use illegal. They have no business trying to rule things they know nothing aout. If they like to drive Priuses, fine. But I will NOT stand idly by while they try to turn real cars into them.
About TheTeaParty.net

TheTeaParty.net is a division of Stop This Insanity Inc. and is a national non-profit 501 (c)(4) organization created in 2009 for the education and advancement of the constitutional conservative values of the Tea Party movement. This organization was created to help give the power of government back to the people. We believe, like many of you, that our government has grown out-of-control in a death spiral of unsustainable and barely imaginable trillion-dollar deficits and a national debt rivaling Gross Domestic Product. This government has ignored the Constitution that defines us; invaded the liberty from which our nation was born; and daily drains away the individuality and entrepreneurial spirit of Americans in order to advance a radical, socialist policy built on the back of American taxpayers. We, like many of you, decided to stand up and do something about it. Learn More.
