Tea Party Reason #s 2,569-2,571

The Bleating from Statists runs along the line of 'why are the Tea Party people so angry'?

How about three examples in three months or so, all with a common thread?

First one:

....our unhinged government, with an obsession like that of Melville’s Ahab, has crippled Nancy Black’s scientific career, cost her more than $100,000 in legal fees — so far — and might sentence her to 20 years in prison.

Second one:

...a rural Oregon man was sentenced to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater. Circuit Court on nine misdemeanor charges under a 1925 law for having what state water managers called “three illegal reservoirs” on his property – and for filling the reservoirs with rainwater and snow runoff

Right-o.  Gummint owns the rain.  Sure.

And finally:

The Supreme Court has come forcefully down on the side of an Idaho couple in its fight against the Environmental Protection Agency, unanimously ruling Wednesday that the couple can challenge an EPA order to stop construction of their home on property designated a wetland..

(I can tell you that EPA and its little sister Damn Near Russia (of Wisconsin) consider almost ANYplace with standing water to be a "wetland" or a "negotiable waterway", including roads subject to annual spring floods. )

A couple of hundred coal-fired electric generating plants will be shut down in the next 2 years because The Statists decreed new (ridiculous) 'clean air' standards.  The City of Brookfield, with 35,000 residents, will be paying $50 million to reduce phosphates by 90% to a laughably low number....decreed by The Statists.

And the Left bleats inane questions.

Maybe if the Tea Party does some drugs, rapes a few women, and craps on a squad car or two, they can get some positive press and some love from Barry and Nancy..
