Big Brother in the Age of YouTube

President Obama’s power-grabbing Environmental Protection Agency is now getting the public to propagandize their propaganda for them. The EPA  announced a contest to make videos explaining how good their laws are for us freedom loving people.  The EPA wants us to flood YouTube with government regulation-loving  “propaganda” that federal regulations are “good for us”.  Sounds like vitamins, but it’s just more mind pollution. The EPA gets a big bang for their buck; the winner gets $2, 500 and all the rest of the contributors speading their message get squat.  This is actually a low budget expenditure as government programs go.
