EPA Declares Hay to Be a Pollutant


The totalitarian fist of the EPA is tightening not only around industry and energy production. Our green rulers have learned from Stalin that the real key to power is choking off food. That’s why the malignant agency has declared hay a pollutant:

A recent report from R-CALF USA, an advocacy group for American cattle producers, says the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared harmless cattle hay a “pollutant,” which is part of the agency’s agenda to squelch family-scale cattle ranches in favor of corporately-owned, mega-sized feedlot operations.

At the recent 12th Annual R-CALF USA Convention in Rapid City, SD, an audience member asked Mike Callicrate, a Kansas cattle feeder, if the EPA had, indeed, declared hay a pollutant. His affirmative answer was startling to many, but not necessarily surprising in light of the US government’s apparent agenda to destroy every single producing sector in the nation and to reduce the country to a poverty-stricken, corporately-dominated wasteland.

“Now that EPA has declared hay a pollutant, every farmer and rancher that stores hay, or that leaves a broken hay bale in the field, is potentially violating EPA rules and subject to an EPA enforcement action,” responded Callicrate. “How far are we going to let this agency go before we stand up and do something about it?”

Evidently the big feedlot operations have more money to donate to Obama’s reelection campaign, so the crocodile will eat them last, after smaller feedlots have been ground out of existence. Under Obamunism, if you don’t have a seat at the table, you’re on the menu.

We’ll know that the US government is back under the control of Americans when the EPA has been abolished.
