EPA: “Crucify a few of them and the rest are easy to manage for the next few years …” [Darleen Click]
It takes a couple of years, but again, here’s direct evidence of the Obama Administration’s hostility towards American oil companies …
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies. [...]
“I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting, but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said:
“It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them.
“Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”
“It’s a deterrent factor,” Armendariz said, explaining that the EPA is following the Romans’ philosophy for subjugating conquered villages.
“Under the bus” nothing … Barry and ilk have a nice stockpile of lumber and iron nails awaiting re-election.
