The EPA Gestapo in now focused on both the fuel and the smoke that comes from backyard Barbeques. In about the dumbest story yet, the EPA has determined that the smoke from cooking food on a Barbecue is bad for us as though anyone stands directly in the line of smoke for hours at a time. And of course, there is the fuel used whether wood, coal briquettes, propane, or natural gas. I guess the EPA Gestapo wants us to use the sun to barbecue our spareribs and chicken. We have reached ridiculous.
The fact of the matter is that people in third world countries use wood, coal and even dengue as fuel to cook all their meals. Backyard barbecues in the United States have little impact on either health issues, or the environment since we use them comparatively infrequently. It is time for the EPA Gestapo to mind its own damn business and stay out of our lives. This is just one more example of government intrusion into everyday life. This Blogger has had it.
The Republican controlled Congress should DEFUND the EPA and send them packing. The states are more than capable of regulating the environment in their regions. We don't need the Federal EPA Gestapo touching all aspects of daily life. This latest attempt to regulate backyard barbecues should be the last straw. Cut the money going to the EPA to starve the beast dead.
