EPA to regulate the fleas and ticks on your dog

Global warming.  Holes in the Ozone layer.  Smog over L.A.  Rivers on fire.  Fuel efficiency standards.  Incandescent light bulbs.  FLUFFY and FIDO.

Enter the EPA.

Don't eat beef; dine on non-flatulent daisies.  Don't cool your home; inhabit a dank cave.  Don't drive your car; ride a bike through the snow.  Don't manufacture tools in a factory; shape some flint into sharp edges.  Don't read by candle light like Honest Abe; use mercury-laden compact fluorescent light bulbs.

AND, FOR GOSH SAKES, DON'T KILL THE PARASITES ON YOUR DOG OR CAT!

After all, out of the 13.7 bazillion dogs and cats in America, approximately 600 died last year from the TLC provided by doting pet owners who applied medications that provide their beloved critters with relief from the pests that besiege their undomesticated brethren.

The EPA is set to tell us how to care for our pets.  According to an AP story posted on MSN, the Environmental Protection Agency will announce new regulations to prevent this inhumane treatment of animals.  Even though these medicines, "do their jobs."

Has any government agency ever claimed as much turf as EPA?

Query:  Will the EPA respond as quickly to abuse of humans under the pending health care legislation?
