Greens: Where Obama Leads, EPA Follows



Text  



EPA bureaucrats follow the President’s lead religiously, it seems. Not just on policy, though, like the regulations I discuss on the homepage today, they also emulate their master in taking time on the job to practice their golf swing. This was actually sent around an EPA office recently:

Who could begrudge these public servants this particular route to good health?

BTW, I have performed a couple of rounds of due diligence on this. It’s real. The afternoon sessions are all booked. It’s offered by a federal health services group that provides “health & wellness” services to EPA employees. This includes special events like the one pictured on the flyer where Nike Learning Center is providing “swing analysis” to prevent back injuries while golfing.
