You may know that the Environmental Protection Agency is having a contest to try to explain “rulemaking” to us rubes. According to the contest site:
Almost every aspect of our lives is touched by federal regulations. Even before you leave the house in the morning, government regulations help set the price of the coffee you drink, the voltage of electricity your alarm clock uses, and the types of programming allowed on the morning news. But many Americans don’t understand how rules are made or how they can get involved in the process. [emphasis mine]
They manage to drag school indoctrination, social justice, and even civil rights into the argument that EPA regulations are to be univerally admired and supported. Or as Glenn Beck said:
Every parent and everyone who ever had to fight for real civil rights should band together peacefully to resist this insidious new direction our government is taking.
To use the plight of the poor, to use minorities to sell discredited global warming hoaxes is despicable. To add racism to it, defies any kind of logic or decency.
America, this is a full frontal assault on your sensibilities, an insult to our intelligence. It’s time to stand up and say enough is enough.
I’m happy to report that the Heritage Foundation has done just that. They have submitted their video on EPA regulations to this contest, and it’s sure to be the winner.
And the EPA had better watch out: some of those Americans who don’t know “how they can get involved in the process” of rule-making are the very folks — like the Heritage Foundation — whom the EPA would prefer to simply keep quiet and let those economy-destroying, nation-killing regulations decimate what’s left of America.
And that’s simply not going to happen.
