Spreading the wealth around while America still has any to spread is such an urgent priority, even the ecofascists of the Environmental Protection Agency are getting in on the act.
The federal agency that’s spending a fortune to bring “environmental justice” to poor and minority communities around the U.S. has just dropped an additional $6.2 million to train low-income residents for “green jobs” in one city alone.
To date, only one actual “green job” has ever been discovered — and Van Jones lost it when the erstwhile “Green Jobs Czar” was exposed by Glenn Beck as a communist, a militant racist, and a 9/11 Truther. No word on what he did with the $60 billion of our money that was expropriated to create other green jobs that never materialized.
It’s all part of the Obama Administration’s costly crusade to help underserved populations obtain the same degree of protection from health and environmental hazards as their wealthy counterparts. Here’s how it works; the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gives money to leftwing groups — including some dedicated to helping illegal immigrants — that teach black, Latino and indigenous folks how to recycle, reduce carbon emissions through “weatherization” and participate in “green jobs” training.
In the last few months alone the EPA has doled out nearly $10 million for environmental justice causes that include a multi million-dollar study on how pollution, stress and social factors affect “poor and underserved communities.” … As if this weren’t bad enough, the EPA keeps wasting taxpayer dollars on these dubious causes. The latest allocation of $6.2 million will go to 21 “community groups” that will “recruit, train and place unemployed, predominately low-income residents in polluted areas” in Atlanta. Uncle Sam’s investment will “create good, green jobs that protect the health of local families and residents and prepare communities for continued economic growth,” according to Obama’s EPA chief, Lisa Jackson.
Continued economic growth? If there were any economic growth, they wouldn’t be slums — I mean, “polluted areas.” Obama is pouring our money down these rat holes as a reward for voting for him.
Needless to say, this has nothing to do with the environment and everything to do with a left-wing looting spree that has not slowed its pace, even as bankruptcy looms in our future.
The malignant EPA’s budget has exploded 34% since Lisa Jackson was put in charge. Yet our rulers tell us that they can’t cut spending, so taxes and the deficit will have to keep shooting up and up until the whole corrupt mess collapses into chaos.
