You can’t make this stuff up!
According to Reuters, EPA wants farmers to rein in the amount of dust floating in the air in the American countryside.
The EPA plans to issue the regulations in the fall of 2011. Details of those regulations and the method of enforcement remain unknown.
Read the entire article. Worth your time to read what the farmers have to say.
Have any of these EPA idiots ever taken a drive in farm country and understood that dust is an inherent part of farm life? Have any of these EPA idiots ever worked on a farm?
No, these idiots likely have not done anything amounting to anything in their lives. This is the problem with government, and with many businesses as well, idiots are promoted, and given advancement because they are idiots. That is to say, they make their bosses lives easier by never asking questions, or coming up with ideas that actually make sense. And, of course, thinking is never welcomed either. I will give you a personal example. I ran a bar for a well-known nationwide dinner theater. Think knights, horses, etc. My location outperformed all the others in cost efficiency, profit, sales. the reason was I actually ran the bar like, well a bar, rather than like a gift shop that sold booze.
So, the guy in charge of all the locations wanted me to run my location like the others. He would tell me that I certainly knew how to run a bar far better than he did, but, he wanted us to change anyway. So I accommodated him as best I could and still kept the best numbers. Then he decided that having a staff like I did, experienced, well-trained bartenders was not a good idea, again, despite the numbers. He also did not like that I bartended too, again despite the numbers. He wanted me to run my operation like the others bar managers did, I guess he really wanted my numbers to suffer or something.
In the end, I was let go, with some severance pay, and with a complete sense of frustration. I, and my staff were let go for, being the best in the company basically. And the guy that replaced me, who was “younger” and “shared their vision” lasted about a month before getting canned for multiple incidents of drinking while driving. I wonder how geniuses like the guy who canned me ever get promoted. Stupidity seems to be increasingly desirable. No wonder we are in trouble in this country.
