EPA To Spend $1.6 Million On Conference

The Environmental Protection Agency will spend about $1.6 million to implement the National Environmental Justice Advisory Council Meeting in Arlington, Virginia.   Of course, this is pencil money for the Agency; but it is still wasted tax payer dollars.  The purpose of the meeting is to solicit Environmental Wacko job killing ideas from the public.  To be fair, this conference has been going on since 1993 and there have been 50 such gatherings, presumably during both Socialist and Republican Administrations.   However, in an Internet age, why do they need it at all.   Certainly, Environmental Wackos can contribute their job killing suggestions on the EPA website. 

But this is not just about environmental protection, it is about combining environmental issues with social justice (code words for high taxation though cap and trade to redistribute income).   Socialists, around the world, are using the environmental issue and global warming, or climate change to push for higher taxes on carbon energy and the rich to use on social programs, which translates into bigger government and more people on Welfare, Food Stamps and Disability Benefits.  As dingy Socialist House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently said people working less can focus on "writing poetry".  

I just wish the Socialists would be honest about their real intentions.  Obviously, everybody wants clean air and water; but Common Sense Conservatives also want jobs to create a thriving Middle Class and lift the poor out of poverty.   We support cleaner, safer and cheaper energy to spur economic growth.  You can bet this concept will not be discussed at the upcoming  National Environmental Justice Advisory Council Meeting because it is not political correct.
