The American Revolution All Over Again?

Remember the American revolution? You know, our ancestors were tired of the King of England exempting himself from the law of the land.

Well, maybe we need to start again. The Department of Defense thinks that it doesn't have to comply with environmental laws.

Thankfully, the MWD doesn't agree. Apparently, Congress is considering granting the exemption. The MWD believes that it is bad public policy.

This writer agrees. Granted, the government (read USEPA) will end up paying for the cleanup anyway - or local agencies if the military abandons their bases - or regular citizens if nothing is done. Our taxes will do it one way or the other.

We fought before to make the government responsible to the people. Perhaps we'll have to do it again. In the meantime, write your representative.
