Web of environmental rules

Fox News, by Barnini Chakraborty

When Burt Rico was caught using a deer feeder equipped with lights while hunting in Louisiana, he was slapped with a $1,051 fine and sentenced to 60 days in jail. He was cited for hunting without a big-game license, failing to wear hunter orange and hunting deer with an artificial light. Until he was cited, he didn’t know he had done anything wrong, he claims. Rico’s case isn’t an isolated one. According to a new report by the Texas Public Policy Foundation, thousands of people are being prosecuted for environmental crimes every day

Why should "hunter orange" even be a law. It´s for your own protection, not to protect someone else.

The EPA is an illegal agency and should be euthanized.

FTA: ´´While there is no concrete figure, there are an estimated 300,000-400,000 environmental laws, statutes and mandates believed to be in circulation nationally. Many can land a person in prison, regardless of whether another person, plant or animal is harmed.´´

Read further - he was spotlighting too. yeah, never knew it was against the law.

#2 - why do we have the EPA? Because corporations, unregulated, took the easy path to hazardous materials management and dumped them wherever and whenever they could without regard to the impact on human health and environment in air, water or soil. I don´t know about you, but I kind of like not having to breath gray air or drink polluted water.

Had industry been good environmental stewards, the EPA would have never been formed. Think of them as the police for pollution. We can disagree with how they are used as political footballs today, but they do serve a valid purpose: To keep you from having to eat cows that drink radioactive water. If you disagree with this, I happen to know several industrial sites where the drinking water has been impacted with various constituents. And per EPA, if you drink enough of that water, and if you have a genetic predisposition for cancer, and if you drink it long enough, it can kill you or your children if they drink it from infancy.

If water isn´t your thing, then breathing the air near these plants would do the same too.

While I agree with the article pemise about too many laws, the first example of a person hunting deer, over a feeder, using a light etc etc, and not knowing he was breaking any laws in complete hogwash.
The rules he broke were all state laws, established by Louisiana Fish and Game and had nothing to do with the EPA.
Better research by the author might make the article believable.

If a person is poaching deer, at night, using a light, wearing hunter orange gear is a moot point.
The author should be ashamed of such a poorly written article.

not EPA rules, Fish and Game rules. spotlighting has been illegal since i was a kid (and my 45th HS reunion is coming up). hunting deer without a license for longer than that. hunter orange wearing, well that´s like for your own protection and if you are too stupid to wear something that shouts out, i´m not a deer - don´t shoot me when everyone around is slinging bullets, well that stupid shouldn´t be illegal. i believe that the only real way to reduce the web of rules and fines is to make a law requiring that you can´t make a new law or regulation unless you recind one already on the books.

Sorry, #4, but those environmentally bad acting companies were pretty much a thing of the ´70´s and ´80´s. Not so much in 2013, when the USA is no longer a major manufacturing country.
Emissions from coal power plants today are so much cleaner than in 1970 that you cannot even compare. Yet we get new mercury and particulate emissions regulations to meet levels that cannot be online measured with instruments today with no scientifically proven health basis.
The EPA is out of control, and has been for some time. Their agenda is anti-energy, anti-industry, and they have driven jobs overseas and increased the cost of your energy bill.
Ethanol in gasoline? Ha!

This article is stupid. THese are state laws. WIth regards to hunting, I have never hunted, have lived half a century and know the following things- even as a child, I knew you had to have hunting or fishing licenses. AS an adult, I found out that some people use spotlights to hunt and that in most places (or all places?) it is illegal. The wearing orange is probably moot since he was hunting at night but it is not just to protect you- the emotional harm that comes to a hunter who may accidentally shoot you if you are resembling a wild animal is not to be taken lightly.

Skimmed the original article and barely made it past the author´s name. BTW he has forgone research on the EPA to follow his own family tree. Second, The orange is to protect the hunter himself Another such law is the seat belt in a vehicle. For lack of wearing it, one acquires a ticket yet it helps no one BUT the actual wearer. Gads, hate those straps..so uncomfortable.

Last year we had three young dear wander up to our deck. Stood in the kitchen, looking out the window, watching them graze and frolic. Beautiful creatures. No license, no shooting, and no orange.

Agree that the example is ridiculous and not applicable the EPA issues.
Regarding the EPA, it deserves some credit for that fact that manufacturing and power generation is as clean as it is today. That being said, the EPA has been hi-jacked by enviros with a totally different agenda than it´s original purpose and needs to be gone.
Re: manufacturing: while China now leads in output, the US is second and outproduces the next seven countries combined. Manufacturing is alive and well here. It´s just doing it with many fewer people; a trajectory nearly identical to that of agriculture in the last century.

#4, you can´t name a single instance of "mother gaia" being so horribly "injured" by "evil man" that "she" couldn´t recover from it. Not one. In fact, the earth consumes everything like a giant feeding machine. Look at the Mayan temples for that. Even the Sphinx was buried and the Pyramids are eroding.

Earth is also responsible for more human death than all of the evil despots and "religions" in history combined through earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, lightning, etc.

Think about it.

#9- if you were correct, I would not be employed. You would be shocked at the things companies do out of ignorance since 1989, the year I became an environmental consultant. There are a number of companies where I have worked that polluted the groundwater, air, and rivers because they didn´t want to pay to comply with rules. 2 years ago, I witnessed a fortune 100 company illegally dispose of wastes and had employees improperly treat the same to save $60K in disposal costs because they would impact the managers bonus. It was only because the state shut then down that they stopped.

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible.

The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
