EPA Targets Backyard Barbecues

Unless it involves perverted sex, if you enjoy it, it must be harmful to either yourself or the environment. Therefore it will be taken away from you on behalf of the greater good. Take barbecues, for instance…

The EPA is funding a $15,000 University of California-Riverside study to look at the particulate emissions you breathe when grilling over an open flame. Along with the drip tray, the emission removal system includes the use of a “secondary air filtration system [that] is composed of a single pipe duct system which contains a specialized metal filter, a metal fan blade, a drive shaft, and an accompanying power system with either a motorized or manual method,” according to study.

No doubt such absurdly elaborate, prohibitively expensive devices will soon be required to grill a hot dog, lest you breathe emissions or inflict global warming upon the sacred polar bears.

They are even going after showers. How long do you think they will allow you to enjoy a backyard barbeque?

BBQ-grill
Something else they will take away.

On tips from Petterssonp, Dan F, Bill T, and Wiggins.

    Time to throw these science denying idiots on the grill. If particulates caused as many deaths as they claim millions would be dropping daily in China.

    Same tyranny, same response. Comrade Cockroach can send his Strum Abteilung after you for any number of reasons, at any time, just pick an agency, EPA, IRS, FBI,DHS, FDA, and a handful of others. If the men in those agencies decide to enforce tyranny then they are just as bad as the tyrant they serve.
    Tyranny can only be overcome by force, it cannot be reasoned with or bargained with, it will not do the right thing – EVER. It does not feel compassion or pity or remorse and has no conscience to restrict its brutality.
    Barack Obama and his entire government are enemies of the United States – PERIOD.

    Not much I can add to that. If we ever defeat these monsters, I can hear it now: We were just following orders…

    Hey enablers of Obama, look to Nuremberg to see how well that defense worked out.

    I barbecued two big a$$ steaks today. I got that barbecue nice and hot and it was smokin. I doused it really good with lighter fluid. Tomorrow it’s baby back ribs on the barbee. Maybe I’ll toss some hickory shavings on top to get it really smokin’. The smell of those smokin hickory chips is mouth watering in itself. Maybe I’ll take a 15-minute shower after I’m done eating them. Life is good, lifes sucks if you’re a liberal.

    These statist control freaks will not be happy until we are all living huddled in huts constructed entirely out of human poo, fashioning craftworks from the same material.
    Even then, that won’t be enough.
    Then these misanthropes will deign our poo hovels a health hazard and probably bulldoze our poo houses with us inside.

    Tell the EPA to allow the clearing of brush in southern CA. Prevent one massive brush fire and every man, woman and child in the entire country can grill for 100 years non-stop with zero impact on those precious polar bears.

They show up and I invited them for barbecue. Our apartment manager was pissed at the guy who called in the fire department and evicted him. LMAO!

    The thing to worry about is not universal enforcement–which is impossible–but using this sort of thing to punish “inconvenient” people. Think “IRS audit” and you’re not far off.

    Except that any force that opposes them must, out of necessity operate as guerillas. Guerilla forces do not have the facilities to hold more than a few captives so generally do not take prisoners. No prisoners equals no trials, all enemy combatants are killed on the battlefield.
    I say guerilla warfare because there is no force in the world that can stand against the US military nose to nose. The lessons of Vietnam and the GWOT is that conventional forces are ineffective against guerilla forces. That special operations have played the increased role against the jihadis. I know enough SOF guys to know that they will not fight American citizens on American soil.
