Government Over Reach ... Let's Hope They Get Burned
The EPA (environmental protection agency) has apparently decided that GRILLING is very BAD for the environment ...
"WHY?" You maybe asking
Well don't you know that when you flip that burger the grease might hit the hot coal or heat element/gas flame and FLARE UP .... This of course would put a minis clue amount of particles into the atmosphere but lord forbid ...
1) DONT grill at all
2) If you must grill - really I heard the word "must" - then place a PAN between the burgers and the heat so the grease doesn't ignite
See NOTE 1
3) use a HAND CRANKED air filtration system to capture the grease which splatters in the air as those steaks & burgers sizzle on your grill
SEE NOTE. 2
The total cost?
$15,000 will go to UCLA to test it out
SEE NOTE 3
Critics are saying
"Maybe the EPA will fulfill FOIA requests after they're done trying to regulate your grill emissions"
-- OMG!! And this will NOT be kept in CA, this will soon be applied all across the country ... I'm guessing BEFORE Obama leaves office too
NOTE 1 -- besides the fact that food (especially meat) tastes so much better when grilled ... The whole point of grilling is NO DISHES/POTS or PANS!! Easy clean up .... Maybe you could use some aluminum foil - just toss it out when done
NOTE 2 -- grilling is supposed to be RELAXING - not yet another excuse for exercise! They do realize that people grill OUTDOORS, right??
NOTE 3 -- $15,000???? REALLY??? Buy a quarter cow, half a pig, and a few chickens for about $500!
There is NO REASON the TAX PAYER should pay for a Californian beach party! This is a total WASTE of money!
This ranks up there with electric lawn mowers -- works fine for tiny yards where the plugs are close .... Pay attention next time you vacuum how often that cord gets in your way
Ps - did you know that unless you capitalize all the letters in EPA, Siri automatically corrects it to pea?
But to top off the day ....
President Obama must be taking a page from bidets book.
Open mouth, insert foot .... Shove it in deeper!
On March6th he was fund raising and made a few points which sounds really weird to an American ear ...
"You can go onto, in some neighborhoods and it is easier for you to buy a firearm than it is to buy a book"
Really? WHERE????? Cuz I'm telling ya I don't know too many neighborhoods without a book store nearby! And ... Well ... Books are CHEAPER than a firearm, so that's not an issue.
Maybe it's a Chicago thang ...
But he didn't stop there ... The STUPIDITY went on .... and on
" ... People just say we should have firearms in kindergarten... "
Mr President, WHO? Who says that? There is a movement to allow certain people in schools to be armed, yes, such as people in the office ... hall monitors (adult employees only) ... and some teachers in older schools - such as high schools or community colleges
But no one ever said anything about guns in kindergarten ....
Although - in the "old days" EVERY HOUSE had a gun. For hunting food. For protection.
And while most coasters will go "but we don't have wolves & Cougars attacking people anymore" it was just from animals they needed the protection from, you know.
Kids were TAUGHT not to mess with them ... In fact lots of kids aged as young as 7 yrs old had THEIR OWN gun! Few got hurt ... unless they ran into a bad guy of course.
Before I get too far off here ... Obama went on ...
" ... We should have, uh, you know, machine guns in, um, bars - you think I'm exaggerating?"
Why ... Yes, yes we DO think you are ... um ... LIEING, sir!
This is why you got THREE pinocchios from that one newspaper (wouldn't you know it ... I can't remember who they were ... and there aren't even that many papers still around! It's just not from around here
Durst has been arrested for having similar handwriting to a note sent to cops some 25-30 yrs ago.
He was found NOT GUILTY for killing his neighbor .... CUTTING UP the body .... putting the smaller pieces into plastic bags .... Then tossing them into Galveston Bay! Oh and he ADMITTED to doing it too before the trial, but he claimed he didn't kill the guy but had to cut him up as SELF-DEFENSE!!!
You co me home and discover your neighbors body in your house.... Did. Mention he was having issues with the neighbor, bad enough to have the cops called out? ...
Hmmmm ... What to do?
You & me - we'd call the cops or a friend, right?
This guy CUT HIM UP!
This guy BAGGED The neighbor up!
Then DUMPED the baggies, not where a cadaver dog might find them, not where crows or other carrion might feed on it .... No he thought enough to take it out on his YACHT and dump it into Gavalston Bay where the fishes could get munchies if they so wished.
But that was just a MISDERMEANOR!
One of the people on that jury said "there are lots of crazy people in Galvaston" ... But I'm betting not BAT ASS crazy!!!
