Green police

Dear Editor:I must have read Mr. Luis Marquez's editorial at least 10 times. ("Let's Be Smart About Environmental Justice," 3/21/13). He used the word "environmental" 11 times in his article, which was filled with political correctness, doublespeak and bureaucratic nonsense. Mr. Marquez and others like him have created the mess America is in with overbearing regulations and the "save-the-planet" mentality. According to the green police, breathing is causing pollution. California has the highest taxes in the nation, the largest illegal alien population and is also the largest welfare state in the nation, yet politicians call for more taxes and regulations. Now Mr. Marquez has finally figured it out that California is No. 50 out of 50 in being the most unfriendly state in the U.S. when it comes to opening businesses and creating jobs. He now wants that organization to be a little more modest in its approach. However, in his last paragraph, he states, "While keeping the door open for new environmentally-responsible economic development." The Keystone Pipeline was approved three years ago which would have created thousands of jobs but has been held up by the green police and President Obama. Let's stop all the nonsense and political correctness and get the country moving again. George Hofstetter Downey
