and those victims would be:

Jobs, in Port Arthur, Texas.

According to a report in the Houston Chronicle, Obama’s EPA has decided:

A proposed pipeline that would ferry Canadian crude oil to Texas refineries has run afoul of the recharged federal push to protect minorities and the poor from an overburden of pollution.

More like protecting them from the overburden of a job.

As noted in the same article, Port Arthur has one of the highest unemployment rates in Texas despite the dense allotment of refineries and chemical plants located in the area.

As to the EPA decision I have to speculate the Port Arthur City Council must not have been “consulted” when the powers that be made their decision. Then again, maybe they were, those council members might have asked for a little too many carbon credits or petroleum perks for the regime’s sensibilities. Again, I’m just speculating here though. I’m sure the EPA and the city truly have the *cough* best *hack* interest *barf* of all those minority residents at heart.

I can see how not being able to feed your family without a government handout is much better than earning a decent wage and providing for your own. A sense of pride and self worth is always a negative thing when compared to the usefulness of a dependent, especially when attempting to sell some new government run entitlement.

Port Arthur and Jefferson County in general have been a Democrat stronghold in Texas for years. Why the Obama regime would chose to punish a town with a large minority population just because of their race is beyond the computing ability of this robot. It surely can’t be because of their voting record.

I think we are about to see first-hand how the term “Environmental Justice” will become another form of discrimination, just another package with a different name.

I also think it’s fair to point out that as much as Obama and his cronies point the racial finger at the TEA Party with no evidence to back up their accusations, this is a true case of admitted discrimination against his own race. Oh, but wait, maybe it’s his white half that he will attempt to blame this one on.

Then again, Socialism knows no race except in the best ways to be derisive and divisive to stir the petty differences as this president does. To share the wealth in this man’s case means to spread the misery. It’s truly a shame that it’s so easy to do with a complicit Congress.

    I’ve thought for a while now that obama hates everyone. Black or white, long as they’re Americans.

      Kid, you’ve been correct for a long while.

    Remember the movie Dances With Wolves? The Kevin Costner character received a Sioux Indian name, Dances With Wolves. Obama has a Sioux Indian name, too. His is … Worse Than Carter.

    Worst. President. Ever.
