tyler — I love it when the big boys in the government are called out on their stuff.
Last week a Texas member of the EPA was caught on tape addressing some fellow Environmental Protection Agency staffers on just what they were going to do with the oil companies in the country.
I have never seen something demonized like fossil fuel.
And this young man was at a conference or something, and he was really in a teat saying
that the EPA and his fellow brethren need to crucify the oil industry.
That senior Obama administration official, caught on video calling for the crucifixion of oil and gas companies, stepped down on Monday.
Al Armendariz, who oversaw the oil-rich south-western region of the Environmental Protection Agency, quit only days after video surfaced of a 2010 meeting in which he called on staff to make an example of companies that break environmental laws.
"The Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They'd go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they'd find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years," Armendariz said in the video.
YOU NOTICE HE NEVER SAID THIS IN PUBLIC.
HE SAID IT BEHIND CLOSE DOORS, justifying that there is a an arrogance by some this government to destroy everything the deem not good.
But now, this little piece of YouTube video brought down this self-important little czar and showed the country what the mission of the EPA is really about.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
