Written October 2011
OK. Been thinking about gross abuse by government employees all night.
Past two weeks, I've done nothing but help individuals directly harmed by deliberate actions by government employees. And now I'm listening to the crap Eric Holder dishes out coupled with Obama's venture capitalism forays. These individuals go on and on and on NEVER being held- as individuals - accountable.
BP cleaned up the spill and paid fines. When the private sector screws up, they PAY.
When government screws up, they stick a gun in your back and demand PAY...MORE!!!
It's as though government employees KNOW they can walk into a bank, demand tellers - and customers empty their pockets, turn on the fire sprinklers and flood the place, yank extinguishers off the wall and lavishly spray them everywhere, riddle art work full of holes, arrest all bank employees under claims NOT of legal standing, cite the customers for patronizing the bank and having bubble gum on their shoes, leave crates of coyotes and determine the
surrounding private yards good places to dump off a few thousand feral horses, set all the trees on fire, and seize all the children in the bank- declare them government property and launch into teaching them self-masturbation, then shove wind turbines and solar panels into your view shed, all in the name of "public good."
Can you tell I'm just a tiny bit angry?
Found out the Army Corps of Engineers allegedly has "millions" to spend on "water projects" in Colorado. And all property owners have to do to get a little bit of those dollars, is to *"bank" their private property in Conservation Easements.
Quick fact: Army Corps of Engineers has no authority over "water" in CO.
If you're interested in learning the facts about such, I could explain it fully; with backup from Dr. Angus McIntosh, Debbie Bacigalupi, Ramona Morrison and more.
Folks. This is the same damn formula being used to "seize" water - in particular- in states under Prior Appropriation.
The difference between 2011 and today? I'm no longer angry.
Neither my or any private property owner’s anger makes a whit of difference to bureaucrats nor NGO's. For they are either stupid, or complicit. They're on a mission, and YOU, the private property owners is in their way!
Plus. Since 2011, Chuck and I had that little thing called the "Friday the 13th Flood." It interrupted us.
The challenge? Trying to help you, the urbanite, understand that our work is not exclusive only unto rural property owners. We're protecting our property today, so you won't have to protect yours tomorrow.
Every day I hear about the exotic trips people take, "learning the language, culture and customs of "other
countries." Never do I hear about a "trip into the country" where one learns the language, culture and customs of ranchers and farmers.
Presently, we have a General Assembly that's more concerned about giving special rights to illegal immigrants, vagrants and fluid genders, than equal rights to property owners.
As I stated to a fellow farmer last night, "As far as the people I know personally in our General Assembly, there's two who can't be bought off. And those who can't buy them off are making damn sure they make their lives a living hell. Nice eh?"
