Another Obama outrage

One of the most compelling arguments made in 2008 for not voting for Obama was the fact it was his minions that would do the real damage. The argument is even more compelling in 2012.

I have sent the following email to my Senators. I urge you to do the same. You can find their email address here:


Perhaps you are unaware of this latest outrage from the EPA.
“On September 13, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sent an internal email to its staff under the subject line “Hispanic Heritage Month.”  The email, obtained by The Weekly Standard magazine, featured a picture of infamous communist butcher Che Guevara with the slogan “hasta la victoria siempre,” or “on to victory, always.”

Che has long been a hero of communists and other radicals for his brutal tactics, and the iconic photo of Che taken Alberto Korda has shown up in inappropriate places before.  But it is especially chilling to see Che’s image being used by a government agency that has pursued an astonishingly aggressive anti-growth and anti-property rights agenda.

“In January 1957, Che murdered Eutimio Guerra, writing his diary: “I ended the problem with a .32 caliber pistol, in the right side of his brain…. His belongings were now mine.”Most infamously, Fidel Castro put Che in charge of La CabaƱa prison, where he summarily executed hundreds of men – over 500 according to U.S. State Department cables. 


This act by an agency of the US government is outrageous. I urge you to go to the floor of the Senate and use your office to strongly condemn this and demand the removal from government service of those responsible and an apology by the head of the EPA.

Senator, it is time you act.

Thank you.

If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

 “It’s the presumption that Obama knows how all these industries ought to be operating better than people who have spent their lives in those industries, and a general cockiness going back to before he was president, and the fact that he has no experience whatever in managing anything. Only someone who has never had the responsibility for managing anything could believe he could manage just about everything.” - Thomas Sowell in Reason Magazine
