Newsflash: Someone just polluted a river with Orange Muck. Call 911. Call the EPA.
Uh, oh, I see. Thank you operator.
Yes, it’s true that for once, the EPA arrived on the scene within milli-seconds of an environmental spill so bad that it turned a river orange. So how on earth was a government agency for the first time ever, actually on a scene so quickly?

Simple. It was the EPA that made the spill. It was the EPA that caused the pollution. And it was the EPA there on the crime scene. But the EPA will not be issuing themselves a fine for polluting the Animas River, and that orange plume is now spreading via the San Juan River to New Mexico and Utah.
Regardless of what you may think of Donald Trump, he is saying things out loud that most of us are thinking. Recently, he said we should take over all the oil wells from the terrorist bully cowards in the Middle East. I wonder what Donald Trump will soon say about this EPA government double standard.
Remember BP, as in British Petroleum? They were fined a whopping $5.5 BILLION for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

That’s what Americans are fed up with these days: government double standards. If it weren’t for double standards, government might have standards in the first place.
