Just when you think that Obama's Big Government can't get any worse, it does and the Ministry of Propaganda (the media) never reports it. Numerous White House scandals aren't enough. Obama has added another.
What is it this time? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (alias the "CDC") has put their hand into YOUR lives. They have "borrowed" the definition invented by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for "Environmental Justice." Their definition is as follows:
"The fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies." They claim that "Environmental justice means that everyone has the right to live in a healthy environment regardless of race, income, age, gender or nationality."
The CDC has produced a video in which they use an "Environmental Justice Specialist" to explain their position. The specialist says while walking in a run-down city neighborhood; "Environmental justice means that everyone has the right to live in a healthy environment regardless of race, income, age, gender or nationality… You can see by looking around this neighborhood that the homes aren’t healthy… People don’t have access to healthy food, and some parts of the neighborhood don’t even have sidewalks."
This characterization of sidewalks, transportation, and homes is the same as Obama's recent proclamation that health care is a "Right."
RED FLAG CAUTION
The Obama government is heading in the direction of dismantling private property rights as granted in the Constitution. Whenever a government agency cites "Social Justice" or "Environmental Justice" they are trying to re-distribute the wealth (namely YOURS). Whenever the Obama government discusses these topics you can be sure they are not looking out for you but trying to destroy what you have worked hard for and earned so they can steal it from you and give it away.
If you listen to Obama, he's telling us that healthcare is a right as well as sidewalks, homes, transportation, and health foods are ALSO "Rights" because he has granted it so.
Do NOT trust this message. You are loosing your freedoms if you believe this is a good thing.
