You’d think that farmers have a hard enough time depending on rain to get their crops the water it needs at times, but the EPA is trying to make the little they’re actually able to do just that much harder. In an effort to fight back and raise awareness about a law cared little bit outside of the agricultural world, one farmer and his family has put together a little parody video poking fun at the new rule.
The video is actually a spinoff of newly popular film “Frozen” where they played off the song, “Let It Go.” Their version is however titled, “That’s Enough,” where they tell the EPA to put an end to the silly, “Waters of the U.S.,” rule.
According to the newest law coming from the ever expanding government, the EPA would effectively be able to regulate and control smaller bodies of water including lakes, ponds, and yes, even rain water that collects in low spots. According to the Missouri Farm Bureau, the latest rule poses, “a serious threat to farming and ranching, home building, energy production and other land uses.”
Seeing how the rule affects them – being farmers – the most, Kacey and Andy Clay put together this little ditty with some of the lyric reading:
This ditch is dry on my farm today, not a puddle anywhere.
There’s no water flowing, but the government doesn’t care.
Once more the EPA is knocking at our door.
With a brand new rule, they want to regulate us more.
They tried before, and we said no.
Why should they control what doesn’t flow?
Agriculture is safe, that’s what they say.
It’s what they always say.
That’s enough. That’s enough.
Can’t take away anymore.
