Fundamental Change

Not Ruby Ridge or Waco, but still…. the EPA?  Really?

A North Carolina man named Larry Keller recently got a visit from two special agents with the EPA and an armed police officer.  His crime?  He sent an email asking how to contact one of their employees. PohDiaries reported:

About a month ago, EPA regional official Al Armendariz made news when a YouTube video of him describing the way the agency handles oil and gas companies surfaced. In it, Armendariz said an analogy he liked to use about enforcement was how the Romans used crucifixion to keep smaller towns and villages under their thumb. Since then, Armendariz has resigned his post at the EPA. Case closed, right? Wrong.

A local North Carolina man named Larry Keller didn’t particularly like the analogy that Al Armendariz used, so, along with thousands of others assumably, he set about to contact Mr. Armendariz to discuss his views on the oil and gas industries. One of our basic rights and privileges in a free society is to be able to petition our government for a redress of grievances without fear of repercussion from said government simply for voicing our grievance.

Keller proceeded to try and contact Mr. Armendariz by Googling him. His domain was a subset of Southern Methodist University, he was directed to contact a Dr. David Gray who is the Director of External Affairs for the EPA. Keller wrote a simple, one sentence email to Dr. Gray which said simply, “Hello Mr. Gray-Do you have Mr. Armendariz’s contact information so we can say hello?”

On May 2nd, just a little over a week after the Armendariz crucify comments had flared up, two special agents from the EPA and a local police officer showed up at Mr. Keller’s home. Here is the story in his own words:

On Wednesday, May 02, 2012 at about 1:45PM two Special Agents from the EPA and an armed police officer who stood 6’6” tall visited our house in Asheville, NC. Their visit was a total surprise as we had not received any communications requesting an appointment. The agents presented very official looking badges and asked if we could sit and chat awhile. We moved to the back porch and took our seats with the exception of the armed officer who stood by the door to the house the entire time.

    They thought this might be a threat? Seriously?

    was wondering, sundance, if this visit was similar to the visit you had?

    The government seems much more protective of the”rights” of the environment that those of the citizens it was formed to serve.

      “When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” — French economist, statesman and author Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)

      See, to the elites and their minions, you’ve got it backwards. The citizens exist to serve the government.

    That Bumper-sticker would be rightly FUNNY is it were not so TRUE! SAD isn’t it what has happened to our once great nation! Can only look forward to January 20th of next year when hopefully Barack ( If I had a son ) Obama AMERICA’S very FIRST Gay President according to Newsweek magazine is sent packing sent on his way out of that Oval Office of that White House! Oy vey!

    My grandmother was an orphan as an infant. No one could find any information about her. A very kind family took her in and raised her with their children. Does that mean I can claim that I might be 1/8 Algonquin Indian. Probably explains my independent spirit. Jeese!!

    Bill Maher on TM. I am not Jewish, and perhaps Maher is. But here is the problem – Maher THINKS that we could cancel the second-amendment, and turn over all weapons to the police – who will protect us – just like Germany. I happen to have great respect for the police, so that it not the issue.


    Here is how quick a democracy can change over-night, if only the police have weapons. Hitler came to power in 1933 – VOTED IN an was very popular. After about three weeks, there was an “accidental” fire in the German congress. With that Hitler asked for “emergency” powers, and to augment those powers he appointed Herman Goring as “Police Commisioner”. To help with this “emergency” Goring asked that all the Storm Troopers be appointed police deputies. Now the S.A. had a “free hand” to beat up Jews AT WILL. But the Jews, when being beaten up, had no weapon to defend themselves. Further, ANYONE who objected, well see your local S.A. man. This is why, in this country, the 2nd amendment was written. I regret that political hacks like Bill Maher have no idea what they are doing.
    Those people who think that by giving up a small amount of freedom – for security – will eventually find out that they have neither freedom, nor security. I think Hitler proved that point.

      Lot’s of liberal Jews are anti private gun ownership. It doesn’t make sense since they are not denying the Holocaust. They are also partially or totally against Israel defending herself. They are in denial of both the moslem agenda and the UN’s and oblamer’s assistance toward that end. My personal observations (I’m in NY and have the opportunity to observe) are that many liberal Jews do not really connect to God. That is why many politically conservative Jews have either become orthodox Jews or become Christians.

      • myopiafree says:

        What is totally BAD about Maher, is his INSISTENCE THAT THIS WAS RACIAL. He NEVER CHECKS ANYTHING. GZ was Hispanic-Black (with some White) He had black children living WITH HIS FAMILY. He supported LIBERAL CAUSES. But all this does not matter to Maher. Futher, TM was in a DRUG CULTURE, that can exist for any race. He had “drifted” into drugs for the last 18 months. DXM does create paranoia in SOME PEOPLE. What truly happened was that this “Stoner Trayvon” thought in his paranoia that GZ was going to “take his drugs, or get roped”. It is hard to tell what was in his “brain”. But, with D.D.’s analysis, it was TM’s drug soaked brain that caused TM to punch GZ in the nose, knock him down and beat his head into the concrete. No one has to PROVE TM’s mental state. They only have to prove GZ bloody nose, bloody back head, back stained with grass and “wet”. TM was a intellectual “basket case” at age 17. Too bad.

        • barnslayer says:

          Unless TM was perpetually under the influence from day one of his anti-social thuggery I don’t buy it. He made a conscious decision to look an act a certain way. The drugs may not have helped but I don’t want to give him or his family any excuses. It’s was all his own doing. I am not willing to blame some concoction of pharmaceuticals as a scapegoat for “ruining a good boy”.

    • Jim K says:

      So the 2nd amendment was written because of what happened in Germany? And make no mistake–Bill Maher is jewish. Also the German people were never denied to right to own firearms.

    Why not make marijauna and cocaine illegal while we are at it.
