Shared sacrifice.

The [Open the Books] report [on the EPA] also reveals that seven of 10 EPA employees make more than $100,000 a year and more than 12,000 of its 16,000 employees were given bonuses last year despite budget cuts.

The EPA also employs more than 1,000 attorneys, making it one of the largest law firms in the country.

The agency also sent over $50 million since 2000 to international organizations, including groups in Mexico and China.

"EPA spends millions on military-style weapons, watchdog group reports." By Kellan Howell, The Washington Times, 10/10/15.

The most absurd federal agencies are developing all but full-fledged infantry units for use against people who build stock ponds on their property or allow their kids to play in the bathtub without a crash helmet. A SWAT team is more likely to come through your door if you've got unpaid traffic tickets as a deputy is to know politely on the door.

The business to go into now is making armor-plated cribs. No more worries about drive by shootings or flash bangs from the meter reader.

Thanks. :-)
