    Milk is Oil

    Milk is Oil

    No really. Milk is Oil according to the EPA, EPA classifies milk as oil, forcing costly rules on farmers:

    Having watched the oil gushing in the Gulf of Mexico, dairy farmer Frank Konkel has a hard time seeing how spilled milk can be labeled the same kind of environmental hazard.

    But the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is classifying milk as oil because it contains a percentage of animal fat, which is a non-petroleum oil.

    The Hesperia farmer and others would be required to develop and implement spill prevention plans for milk storage tanks. The rules are set to take effect in November, though that date might be pushed back.

    There will be no Gulf Oil Spill in dairyland. Our government is on the job.

    I wish I could think up some more snark about this, so help me out.

    Oh, and breathing is now regulated (CO2) so we might as well put mufflers on our *ahem* exhaust ports at both ends to prevent greenhouse gases.

    Can't be too intrusive can it?

    It is increasingly apparent that the primary (possibly only) purpose of the EPA is to destroy the modern world by getting in the way of anything and everything that might, in some way, benefit humans.


    What's next? Regulating breastpumps?

    A list should be made of those agencies that are stopping progress, in the way for no reason, irrelevant, etc. Here is a partial one:

    DEA – who ever said the government could limit
    your access to meds? This forces you to
    your doctor, who might not know any more
    than you and sure cost like hell (I am a
    OSHA – in the way and redundant
    EPA – never should have been organized
    Home Land Security – a joke, a very cruel one
    TSA – basically illegal

    This is partial, given time I could think of many more and imagine the savings!!

    Will nursing mothers have to wear HAZMAT suits?
    You know, if we didn't know that Obama was really a socialist, we might believe that he was a conservative parody of a socialist, to implement the most ludicrous aspects of the nanny statism that gets most Americans rightly riled, just so he would drive Americans back to sanity.
