Watch Out for the "Green Police"

In what was seemingly an outlandish Super Bowl commercial, the “Green Police” could become all too real.  Though the cap-and-trade legislation appeared to die in the Senate after the passing the House, that doesn’t mean the war of environmental regulations is over. Liberals could still force draconian environmental restrictions on us anyway. Tucked into the budget of the Environmental Protection Agency [1] (run by unelected bureaucrats) is money to enact “laws” that will force us to comply with new emissions standards. This commercial would be funnier if it wasn’t so true.
