California Farmer Fined $2.8M for Plowing His Own Field

Wut?

The California farmer who became the poster child for EPA reform under President Donald Trump is being fined $2.8 million by state and federal regulators for plowing his own field in Tehama County.

According to a story in the Redding Record Searchlight:

“The case is the first time that we’re aware of that says you need to get a (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) permit to plow to grow crops,” said Anthony Francois, an attorney for the Pacific Legal Foundation.

“We’re not going to produce much food under those kinds of regulations,” he said.

However, U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller agreed with the Army Corps in a judgment issued in June 2016. A penalty trial, in which the U.S. Attorney’s Office asks for $2.8 million in civil penalties, is set for August.

Despite repeated efforts by President Trump to curtail refugee resettlements, the State Department this week quietly lifted the department’s restriction on the number of refugees allowed to enter the United States.

The result could be a near doubling of refugees entering the country, from about 830 people a week in the first three weeks of this month to well over 1,500 people per week by next month, according to refugee advocates. Tens of thousands of refugees are waiting to come to the United States.

The State Department’s decision was conveyed in an email on Thursday to the private agencies in countries around the world that help refugees manage the nearly two-year application process needed to enter the United States.

‘The Shove Felt ‘Round the World’: The Media Lose It After Trump Shows NATO He’s ‘America First’

‘The Shove Felt ‘Round the World’: The Media Lose It After Trump Shows NATO He’s ‘America First’

I swear, this country sometimes. Apparently, everyone is offended by Trump “shoving” this dude. If you saw my last Weekly Funny post here, you know how I felt about it.

Folks, lighten up! I know, I know… he “shoved” someone you suddenly deem important even though you probably didn’t know his name until you decided to be outraged.

In the meantime, I’m over here like (Language warning):

I’m sorry, the clip was the funniest thing I’ve seen all week! LOOK AT HIS FACE!!!!!!!! He pushes that guy aside and then just look at him!!!! How can you not at least chuckle?! I’m over here putting music behind it like it’s going out of style because it makes me laugh harder, and you’re getting outraged. Please.

This man gets it:

Your Weekly Funny: Move! Get Out the Way!

OK. Look. Normally, when I type “LOL” online, like everyone else, I probably didn’t actually laugh out loud. This time, I did. Both of these, no matter how many times I see them, I laugh out loud.

I took some liberties with this first one, language warning for the added music. But the music had to be there.

And this one…. shade is thrown…. a shoulder is thrown out in response. (I don’t know who the voices belong to, sorry)
