Adios, Al! Does this Mean Yesterday was Ouster Sunday?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Al Armendarizo, the suddenly controversial EPA official, who spoke of crucifying businesses randomly to show everyone else you mean business, has resigned today. Awww! Yes, the weaselly Obama appointee reportedly had this to say as Obama's bus wheels ran him over:
In a letter to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson sent Sunday, Al Armendariz says he regrets his words and stresses that they do not reflect his work as administrator of the five-state region including Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Let me see...what was it exactly that he said on the tape: "my philosophy of enforcement". (00:29) So, he had a philosophy to guide him, it just never affected his work?? Is he going into bridge sales now??
Find people who are not compliant with the law, and you hit them as hard as you can and you make examples out of them, and there is a deterrent effect there...
...So you go out, you look at an industry, you find people violating the law, you go aggressively after them.
...So you put some financial pressure on a company, you get other people in that industry to clean up very quickly. So, that's our general philosophy.
Wait a minute! He says it's his philosophy (which he iterated on at least two occasions) and then he says of the EPA, it's our philosophy, but then tells us that philosophy did not "reflect in his work".

If you feel a warm, yellow stream emanating from Mr. Armendarizo, he may try to tell you it's raining. Give that statement equal credence with the rest.

    "... who spoke of crucifying businesses randomly to show everyone else you mean business, has resigned today."

    I know this is way too hard for some to understand, "Get the facts straight" before going off the deep end of the stupid pool. But some people's goal is to go off the high dive into the stupid pool for the sake of being stupid.

    The fact that Mr Al Armendarizo was talking about law breakers does not seem to seep into your consciousness (or your conscience). But hey scream bloody murder loud and long enough and facts be damned.

    How many children in USA are _YOU_ willing to allow to die for the sake of corporations' ability to pollute the air, water, and land in USA?

    1. I know this is hard for you to understand Ema, because it is written in English, but look up the word "crucify" sometime. Al and his ilk were not interested in merely administrating remedies to the problem, they were punishing companies. Hence the word, and the philosophy of "crucifixion". I have no problem with making corporations obey the law. That doesn't mean you have to resort to draconian punishments. I believe in enforcing speed limits and jaywalking laws, too. That doesn't mean that we break the kneecaps of jaywalkers to make an example of them. Maybe you could get your facts straight and have someone read to you what I wrote. Tell them to add special emphasis on the words in bold (Those are the words that are darker than the rest), or italics (those words tilt slightly to the right. If they tilted to the Left, we would call them crazy talk).

      "How many children in USA are _YOU_ willing to allow to die for the sake of corporations' ability to pollute the air, water, and land in USA?" Oh, please! What hyperbolic nonsense! Is this where you "scream bloody murder loud and long enough and facts be damned"?

      More people will die this year from rising energy costs than do from pollution. You libs cry about the people who will "die without health insurance", why don't you cry about the people who will lose their insurance along with their jobs if the EPA "crucifies" their company to make an example of them? Or forces them to spend three times as much on a 'government approved' solution that produces the same results as less costly ones?

      How many children are you willing to allow to die, Ema, because you and your president are liberals? What a pathetic joke you are, Ema. The typing under your pseudonym typically makes more sense than anything you type above it.

  3. There's nothing wrong with the environment. Why give scum like notmyNamE any credence by accepting their retarded premise? The biggest destroyer of children and the environment is the Leviathan state these vermin worship.

    May they rot.

    1. I'm sorry. I didn't realize I was giving Ema any credence at all by mocking her/him/it for its idiotic statements. I'll have to be more careful.

  4. It was rhetorical question. Please don't think it applied to you or even notmyNamE specifically.

    Carry on, good soldier. hehe

    One knows when one has won the discussion, its when one's opponent resorts to name-calling.

    "More people will die this year from rising energy costs than do from pollution." Yuk yuk yuk.

    The fact that we have lowered the amounts of pollution in USA is a result of the people, through our government, requiring corporations to meet clean air and water standards established by the EPA. The only reason corporations meet said standards is the consequences when the corporations are discovered to be not in compliance with the standards. The consequences have to significantly severe to deter and prevent future rule violations.

    "... if the EPA "crucifies" their company to make an example of them?"
    - When the company is breaking the law, then yes the EPA should "crucify" the company (and all the people responsible). (For the sake of those weak knee ilk who are oh so offended by the use of the word 'crucify', the word is used rhetorically!! But hey you know that but it has not stopped you from pretending your outrage.)

    "... forces them to spend three times as much on a 'government approved' solution that produces the same results as less costly ones?"
    - Ya right. Instead of requiring polluting companies to meet 'government approved' toxic waste disposal techniques, these corporations should be allowed to simply and very cheaply dump toxic waste into nearby land-fills, lakes, and/or rivers (and the local population be damned).


    FYI - The people's President is a Moderate, not a Liberal.

    1. "Yuk yuk yuk." So that's the face of "compassionate liberalism" to children dying? If you ever get your head out of your colon, please see if you can recall any of the myriad stories of people who couldn't pay their utilities, who resorted to lighting with candles, heating with kerosene heaters and the like. Tally the numbers of the dead from CO poisoning and death by fire and yuk it up a little more. It's so you.

      The rest of your mindless drivel is duly noted.

    2. Oh, also addle brained Ema, add in the deaths of those elderly overcome by heat when they can't afford their AC bills and those who freeze to death in unheated homes. Yuk some more.

    2. Ema is like those folks at The Nation who complained that Clinton was too much a conservative. When you are left of the Daily Kos, everything on the left looks "moderate".

    3. Thanks for illustrating yet again, Ema, that "pathetic joke" is not a "name called", but an apt description.

  7. notmyNamE just admitted it ran out of talking points to parrot. Even they know what a loaf of dung their wee little lord and savior is. The guy is the weakest excuse for a president we've ever had. And his hapless supporters know it.
    Hell, look at all the crowing they've done over this OBL deal calling it a "gutsy" decision. Just how little one must think of wee Brak to imagine that for someone of his wretched stature, that's a tough call. What sort of spineless maggot must a man be in order for that kind of no-brainer to be something requiring "courage"? Hehe.

    These dorks checkmate themselves at every turn, but they're too consumed with blind hatred of their own country to take notice of it.
