Breaking: Rick Santelli ARRESTED by EPA covert special ops

                                       

Santelli arrested by armed officers from the “covert” EPA special forces division.

Has the bully pulpit stepped up notches way out of control for dissent in this country?

Still reading myself… here’s the link from the DC Examiner. In the meantime, contribute to the news by your additional links please….

CNBC reporter Rick Santelli, whose passionate rant about the Obama housing rescue plan, and call for a “Chicago Tea Party” became a viral internet video, was arrested today by armed officers from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) covert special forces division.

Held without bail at an undisclosed “brownfield site”, Santelli faces several counts of reckless endangerment of wildlife habitat after he threatened to rally capitalists to dump “derivative securities” into Lake Michigan as a way of re-enacting the Boston Tea-Party protest of 1773.

“Mr. Santelli is certainly entitled to his wacky economic opinions,” said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, “But if he had gone to the EPA website, clicked the regulations link, downloaded the document, printed it out and read it…he would have realized that dumping toxic assets into a lake is expressly forbidden. Read the document, Mr. Santelli. Read it.”


Gibbs added, “I don’t know where Mr. Santelli lives, but apparently, like most conservative critics, he has a callous disregard for the lives of the waterfowl, sturgeon and fresh-water mollusks that inhabit the Lake Michigan watershed. If the Chinese were shipping us toys made with derivative securities, we’d recall our ambassador and cut off relations. If R.J. Reynolds were mixing derivative securities with its tobacco, cigarettes would be banned. Do you know what’s in those securities, Mr. Santelli?”

The press secretary later said that final question was rhetorical since, like the recently-passed stimulus act, “no one really knows what’s in there yet.”

Yeah yeah… this is a SATIRE! But a good one, eh? LOL This is your “gotcha” grin for the day! We always can use one, yes?

All I can say is… Onion? Move over for Scrappleface’s Scott Ott.

    Oy!

    The quote from “Gibbs” should have tipped me off but I was too wound up by that point.

    That was good.

    HA! good one!

    I can understand why those assets were so toxic EPA would have to intervene.

    Did Barney Frank and Dodd aware of this level of toxicity?

  3. Ask the guy in Texas who had the “abort Obama” sign on his car and had his house turned upside down by the Secret Service if Obama’s threats to our civil liberties are a joke.
