They're gone now, of course. In fact, the "NO EPA" signs might also be gone, because there aren't enough local natives left to keep up the facade that Kellogg is anything but a tourist-dependant town. The EPA effectively killed the entire industry base in the Silver Valley. And they did it without firing a shot. All those unelected bureaucrats did was make it illegal for the mines to do business, one regulation at a time.
Well guess what, boys and girls! The EPA is coming to your home sooner than you think!
If your home or commercial property was built before 1978, the EPA will fine you $3,500 for each 'incorrect' sanding, cutting and rehab project. Which means if Joe Homeowner replaces 10 windows in a home incorrectly, he will face a $35,000 fine.At this point, I am more than willing to pay cash on the barrel so that there's no record of any work being done on my house. "Work? Replaced? No, those windows were like that when I bought the place. Prove me wrong." And I'm more than willing to bet that a good portion of America, like the complacent sheep they are, will simply nod their heads and bleat when they're told by their government masters and lords.
Good god, what this country has become makes me sick.
