Hi, friendly EPA guy here. Don't open those beers as the smell of alcohol may offend others. Hey!!! and get rid of those nuts for goodness sake. Some people have allergies!!! And...goddam it,,,you brought along a packet of crisps. The noisy bag may incur a noise control regulation fine if you crinkle it!! Now get inside and turn the flamin TV and stereo down..NOW.

Except none of this is actually happening and all you're doing is ranting about nonsense in order to get yourself and others all worked up about absolutely nothing at all.

You people just so desperately want things to scream about that you'll even manufacture them to give you that sense of "fighting the man!"

It's getting ridiculous. You're really no better than the Daily Heil readers here in the UK who spend most of their time enraged over things that AREN'T HAPPENING.

OMG! What a shock, the compliant was against a black person.

Am I just a hardcore pessimist, or would a compliant like this never be made against a guy with a typical white redneck american family guy appearance?

We all BBQ, regardless of color.


Which is kind of my point.

One of the comments in the story in the link under the video says that BBQs are EXEMPT in Pinellas county as far as smoke regulations. Part 3, exemptions. Might be just a nit. And an argument he'll win in court.

Except the article you link to only seems to outline the fact that the EPA is working on measures to prevent pollution, it has nothing to do with the video you posted.

The video is also taken out of context, the title doesn't seem to support the claim being made about this. The guy has clearly arrived to tell them that their use of their BBQ equipment is causing a nuisance to neighbors, and without knowing the rest of the information how can you claim that this isn't true?

All of this just seems like more desperate excuse to rail against "big bad gubment", and nothing more.


I was waiting for you.

Take the message to heart:

From Klassified:



The other vid in the OP is showing an Govt. ass-hat walking onto a citizen's private property and confronting him about his BBQ. If you're ok with that, that's your right I guess. If you can't read between the lines and see what is coming, that's your right as well.

After all, it's not just about a BBQ is it?

Said in jest mate. Not ranting. I laughed at the whole situation. No screaming involved, I assure you. I've had similar issues with neighbours to the point that I chucked it in and moved from a similar urban legoland.

Best decision I ever made. BBQ's anytime I want and I have a smoke house for me pork.

Cheers and homebrew beers,

Bally

Is he allowed to fart or take a crap ONLY if the smell stays on his property too?

Your local government is seriously stupid.

The video has nothing to do with the EPA as the guy says several times he is from the County and that it was do to a complaint about smoke blowing into a neighbors yard. The article is about a grant to study ways to make grills less polluting. That Fox news runs as something that the EPA is coming after your grills. One story has nothing to do with other and the other is full of hyper-bowl with nothing to back it up.

Does it really have to be spelled out?

EPA funds the study

County shows up to a BBQ

From the source you are denying:


The local ordinance, similar to countless others across the country, falls in line with a longstanding effort from the Environmental Protection Agency that aims to limit everything from BBQs to wood stoves under the guise of reducing pollution.

govtslaves.info...
www.washingtonexaminer.com...

See the pattern of yet another money grab law surfacing? THAT'S what is at issue here.

ETA: I had to re-visit your post because something stuck out for me. You are right that it wasn't an EPA officer but rather a County Slave. This was my mistake in typing. My apologies.

I knew what I was saying but alas, my fingers did not.


Peace

Just one neighbor, actually, who according to these guys has called police and fire department on numerous occasions because of the 'smell'.

She's the only one having a problem, they should cite her for misuse of the emergency response system.

That they don't and focus on these guys suggests systemic abuse…

The guy in the video also randomly goes out of his way to state the reason he is there has nothing to do with racism.

Now... if a cop pulled me over in my car and I randomly made a comment about not possessing illegal drugs... the first thing that cop is going to do is be suspicious that I have illegal drugs in my car and then proceed to search my vehicle for suspicion of illegal contraband.......... just saying.

I'm so happy not to live in Florida; what a disgusting asshat, bottomed out state.


Enjoy your freedom. I moved down here to go to a college when my parents got a house here. At one point they had to actually repaint their mailbox, because its color was not on an approved list of colors. I can't say a single good thing about Florida, and I can't wait for the day I finish my degree program and GTFO.

You'd think the smell of BBQ would be preferred over the smell of living in a s#!+ hole.

how do you know that it wasn't a black neighborhood, and the woman wasn't a old cranky black lady.

well it could be that, but you also notice that the guys said the fire department and police told them to not worry about it and to " go ahead On" statrting at 1:58 mark. so clearly it's not the county, fire department or the police that are foucing on these guys. it's the old lady.
as i said to another poster
"how do you know that it wasn't a black neighborhood, and the woman wasn't a old cranky black lady."

Just calling it like I see it mate.

A white bloke investigating a totally ridiculous complaint, well going out of his way to be amendment that it was nothing personal. Which makes me suspicious that it was personal.

Dude says everyone is allowed to cook out except me.

And I'll say it, he's black.

But don''t mention that.


Yeah, everyone else on the street is allowed to BBQ with no complaints. I'd say he's got an issue with his neighbor. I wonder if the neighbor ever BBQ'd. This is a harassment issue from the neighbor. I'm surprised the county is even getting involved. Has she called on any other neighbors?
