Well, it seems we’ve touched a nerve over at the Sacramento-based Pacific Legal Foundation. They are NOT pleased with our recent blog posting about the Priest Lake wetland case. Pacific Legal Foundation represents the Sacketts in their procedural fight with the EPA.
Of course, the “PLF Liberty Blog” doesn’t really take issue with our analysis. Mostly they are critical of our lack of outrage over the EPA’s use of their Clean Water Act authority. And they are critical of our emphasis on the procedural nuance lost in the broadly anti-EPA Fox News coverage.
So, to be fair we will officially admit it — we’re as ideologically-driven as they are. But our outrage is more typically reserved for people who bulldoze wetlands without a permit. As we wrote in our posting, the U.S. Supreme Court will tell us only how the wetland issue will get decided under the Clean Water Act. Which is why we will reserve our outrage until a Court weighs the evidence on both sides.
