I just had to respond to the article “Farmers safe from lawsuits if they help with research” (June 17, 2004).
Farmers safe from lawsuits?
Hmmm… Let me see.
I pay the EPA to monitor my land so they can create laws that I will be in violation of.
If I pay, I’m protected from lawsuits from violations of laws that do not exist.
If I don’t I am not protected from lawsuits from violations of laws that do not exist.
They call this “safe harbor”?
In my day, it was called blackmail.
