Freedom of speech for me, not thee
Further proof--not that it was needed--that liberals are so-o-o thin skinned; they're allowed to mock you, criticize you, harm you but the moment you try to defend yourself or even use their tactics they cry foul. No freedom of speech allowed.
In the latest example, the environmentalist defenders of EPA's crucifier Al Armendariz, Citizen Media for We The People (if you're liberal and agree with us) have removed the incriminating video from their YouTube site while complaining about Sen James Imhofe's (R-OK) improper use of it. However the historically inaccurate video is still available on MRC and WallStreetist.com.
In the meantime more representatives--Republicans- are asking for Armendariz's resignation. Will the former academic still qualify for government funded research grants--he's received over half a million tax dollars to date? Hmmm.
has collected or shared in at least $540,522 in taxpayer dollars from the federal government to fund environmental projects that stretched from 2004 to 2010. (snip)
"For historical purposes, I will plan on keeping my previously-generated SMU documents on this web page for as long as the IT office at SMU allows," he explained on the site.
Armendariz's "research" resume highlights the hundreds of thousands of dollars he received as a professor from government and private institutions for research on pollution and related topics.
Specifically, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention paid him $299,032 for a three-year study on the "Control of Workplace Diesel Exhaust Particulate" that ran from 2005 to 2008.
The Environmental Protection Agency also funded a $45,000 grant that Armendariz received from the Office of Environmental Services of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma in 2004. That research covered the "Development of a Field Test for Detecting Hydrocarbons in Soils."
Your tax dollars not at work.
