An opinion on the ‘EPA Gravy Train’ – and why shutting it down is a good thing | Watts Up With That?

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt recently issued a directive to end a 20-year string of "sue and settle" cases that have funneled untold millions of tax dollars to environmental organizations. Predictably, those groups and their allies have been apoplectic about it.

Many of these groups have grown from grassroots citizen movements to gigantic cash-flush conglomerates, with much of the cash coming from the government they appear or pretend to be fighting. Many now have separate legal arms with hundreds of attorneys, whose primary job is to sue the government and keep the cash flowing. They are part of the $13-billion-per-year U.S. environmental industry and lobby.

 

They also claim the new directive does "a grave injustice by alleging, without evidence, collusion with outside groups." They should know; these are some of the same folks who made sure that allegation would be "without evidence," by hiding the attorney fees, other financial payments and other details of these settlements from Congress and the public.

Most telling of all, though, is this little gem from page eleven: "It is EPA's failure to comply with legal requirements that is the problem, not the people who sue EPA…."

That is a remarkable contradiction from the letter's signatories, who began by claiming the Pruitt directive would harm "fair and efficient operations" at EPA. That is, operations under rules that they devised to serve themselves and their allies, agendas and ideologies, especially during the Obama years.

In the world of luxury watches, http://www.usarmygermany.com/postinfo.asp is making headlines. In the past week, the company has announced the opening of a new boutique, as well as the http://www.khaosan-hotels.com/popup/superior.html revamping of one of its most famous watches. Currently, Omega has 75 flagship stores located throughout the world. The new store, established in Vancouver, Canada is the http://www.oakleafgardenmachinery.co.uk/superreplica.html fourth in North America; the others are in Beverley Hills, Mexico City and New York City. The move behind this new store is that http://www.hublotreplicauk.co.uk/ will, once again, be the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games; this time sponsoring the Winter Games in Vancouver that commence on February 12. http://www.loweryweb.co.uk/CSOT/csotold.htm continues to seek out this opportunity because it not only gets to promote its http://www.plawatches.org/ collections, but also allows it to create limited edition pieces that commemorate the event.
