The government is so two faced in its policies concerning the environment. When they, or their big corporate buddies, want to pollute or negatively
alter the the environment for their profit, it's all good, it's a green light for go, but the private citizen, or even federal services for the
general public, are "regulated" to death.
Here's an example. A buddy of mine was a "host camper" managing a federal camp ground on a small lake. The lake has a beach, boat launch and docks,
however, because no one has been maintaining the beach and boat launch, the cat tails, reeds and rushes had been growing and taking over. So, when
they decided they needed to clear the area for the public's use, they had all these agencies involved (like the EPA, etc.) who came around and said
they can't do any improvements for the public use because it was now a "natural wetland" and couldn't be altered. They threw out the whole idea of the
park being a public service facility due to their environmental policies. So much for public use. Yet, it was only a few years ago, such rustic
federal campgrounds were free to the public. Of course they have hired a private management company that charges people for it's use and pay a host
camper to be a minimum wage slave enforcer to bring in the money.
So we can see it is OK, matter of fact, its great for the military industrial complex to get away with pollution and environmental destruction, but
you'd be damned if you want to make improvements to your own private property or to the public's property managed by the feds. Obviously if you don't
have clout due to money and influence, you wouldn't dare disturb the cattails or drive on a seasonal trail, etc. Screw you government.
