Amphibious Assault Ships? Seriously why does every individual Government Agency need their own Army? This is beyond ridiculous.

The agency spends nearly $75 million each year for criminal enforcement, including money for a small militia of 200 “special agents” charged with fighting environmental crime.

www.washingtontimes.com...




The Environmental Protection Agency has spent millions of dollars over the last decade on military-style weapons to arm its 200 “special agents” to fight environmental crime.

Among the weapons purchased are guns, body armor, camouflage equipment, unmanned aircraft, amphibious assault ships, radar and night-vision gear and other military-style weaponry and surveillance activities, according to a new report by the watchdog group Open the Books.

“Protecting the environment just got real. With millions of dollars spent on military style weaponry, the EPA is now literally ensconced with all institutional force,” said Adam Andrzejewski, founder of Open the Books and the author of the report.

Wow, and you know what? The Environmental Protection Agents won't be going after the corporations raping the environment for resources, they'll be going after people trying to catch them on camera.

What irony, your tax dollar being used to guard against you.

Well, you know....the Accountants of the IRS need AR-15's...we cannot deny the EPA their toys, too.

I for one cannot wait until the FDA and the SSA get their drones and ICBM's, too.


Fair is, after all, only fair.

Future headline: EPA official charged with stalking ex-wife using borrowed drone.
Not like other gov. types can't go "postal" as well, right?
Sure, lets put military grade weapons in the hands of people with no training nor aptitude.
More government brilliance.
Oh, but we don't have enough money to give people on S.S. a cost of living adjustment.

While the Us government tries to take our guns away.

That same government arms another agency!

Something seriously wrong with that picture.
