   Belwhatter posted on Suggested Reading  Just dropping by to recommend Brad Thor's latest - "Hidden Order" thriller based on the Federal Reserve - being Brad he imparts a great deal of the history of the Fed into the action. Also for ex pat Brits, Jeffrey Archer has a new series going called the Clifton series - an ongoing saga that's a real page turner - three down, waiting for #4.

   Gerty  Yes.

I am still trying to digest her entire program from last night. But she WAS passionate in her demand for Obama and anyone else who will not perform the duties of their office to step down.

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  US government is suing the State of Arizona on behalf of Mexico against our own people. The magic of cut and paste is not working for me, sorry, -but here is the address to look up http://www.youtube.com/embed/tsH8xvyjTAlo. If you read this straightforward presentation and agree that something is very wrong , please let others know - it could happen in another state or states.

   Alice  Is this a new lawsuit? In 2012 the Supreme Court decided Arizona and by extension other states are not permitted to enforce any immigration laws, only to check immigration status of people they stop (or something like that ). That is all I could find searching on United States v. Arizona.

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  At a local TEA party meeting last night, the guest speaker from the state dept. of ecology addressed environmental issues from the free market point of view. He noted that the push to build "green" schools has had interesting results. He compared the energy savings of a new green elementary school with those of a similar sized new traditional style school built at the same time. The utility bills of the green school, which cost 3% more to build, were 30% higher than hose of the traditional build. He brought it to the notice of the architect[green school] who harrumphed and blamed a design feature. The following year our speaker did another review of utility bills and found the design alteration had reduced the energy consumption by a whopping 5% still 25% higher. After this the state repealed a law mandating green schools.

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Three different times today I heard news reports that obama is putting huge areas of the Eastern Pacific [?Micronesia] off limits to fishing/ drilling etc. How can he do that? I know he thinks he is Allah, but surely he doesn't own the oceans even if he thinks he does.? Has anyone else heard about this executive order?

   MeiDei  Yes, the area extends from the Hawaiian Islands in the north to Samoa in the south and west to Guam (wonder how Ms. Pelosi will take this as their tuna canneries operate there ) Wake Island and several atolls. He plans to do it by executive order. Does he have the power & the right to do so is debatable, but that doesn't seem to stop him.

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Justina Pelletier, the 15 year old girl being wrongly treated and whose parents are restrained form visiting her unless armed guards are in the room!!! now in the sole custody of the Massachusetts child protective[joke]service, is sinking fast according to the latest bulletin from her family. How can this deliberate separation from her medical team at Tufts and her family be allowed to continue? Something evil is afoot - please L Dotters look up her case and pray for divine intervention -

   Hollyhock  Something evil is afoot alright. I have been watching and reading about this case since last year. A newly minted doctor was awarded a grant by the federal gubmint to study Somataform (sp ). The law says that they are able to experiment on wards of the state. I think they are in too deep and this case needs to be resolved soon before it is too late.

Why won't the gov of either state or congerss people do something??????????? Justina is actually a resident of Connecticut.

I agree Bel, please pray for her.

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Cattle ranchers down South are having their property rights endangered by this dominating regime - These brave ranchers are being challenged on every side, land and cattle forcibly confiscated by armed BLM agents, family members physically assaulted. See the latest such incident listed on Drudge today.The excuses vary from free grazing, water rights, and other pettifogging minutiae. This is happening right now in Harry Reid's state.

   Hollyhock  I wonder if one of those ranchers is the one that was on Fox last weekend. They went public and now they will pay. The government is getting way to big and powerful.

"Public Domain" is bogus.

   Rollingcow  I've been reading about this guy for years. Just because you lease land doesn't mean that it's yours and you can stop paying. The only people really speaking at the moment is one or two of this man's 14 children who probably think the land belongs to them as well and think their inheritance is being stolen. The guy's an idiot.

   StormCnter  The rancher highlighted on Drudge is not in the South, but in Nevada. His argument with the government is over federally owned grasslands that his family has leased since 1870. Leasing federal land does not transfer ownership. The BLM is not confiscating Bundy's property, but evicting his cattle from federal lands after courts have ordered him to vacate the land and after he stopped paying leasing fees for the last several years. Mr. Bundy is not a victim. He has said he wants to "pass the land to his children". Well, you don't get to place federal lands into your estate.

   Balogreene  I don't agree with the Government owning so much land. But, these people are leaseholders. 12 years ago, our landlady told us she was selling the house we were leaseholders on. No one would have argued her right to do that. We moved, found out we could afford to buy, and are better off for it. I know this family cannot afford to buy that land (because the Government owns so much of it ), but it is not theirs. Whether they realize it or not, they have had a hundred years of Government Subsidies. It's time to wean them off the public teat.

   Hollyhock  My mistake. I think I got some stories mixed up. The guy I saw on Fox along with the owner of Fender and some others. His Father (now dead ) had sold land in California and then purchased land in Nevada. Maybe some of their grazing land was leased.

   Belwhatter  I saw the family Fox highlighted too - this just seems like more government excess when their efforts could be redirected to more important matters - like closing the border. So many government agencies are now armed to the teeth - when once upon a time the police were the ones we depended on to keep the law.

   Rollingcow  This has been going on for decades, this man has lost in court at least once. I don't have any problem with this one at all. If I ignore the rules I'm in trouble, so should he be no matter how sad his family wants to make it sound.

   Balogreene  The only things that bother me are, the Feds shouldn't own so much land, and the BLM has 200 SWAT members? But, everyone else is following the rules, so should this man.

   StormCnter  I agree that the federal government owns entirely too much land in this country, for instance the feds own 85% of Nevada.
Here is a link where you can see how much federal land is in each state by clicking on Map List at the left.

   Belwhatter  Thank goodness this story is gaining traction - not in lib media of course - but the reliable news sources are running with it. There is much more to this than non payment of taxes - - the Feds have been buzzing the cattle to scare them away from the watering holes, and separating the calves from their mothers milk ensuring the herd will soon collapse. The EPA has a huge interest in getting the ranchers out of business, the prairie tortoise being a convenient excuse, and there is also the real possibility there are rich deposits of oil and gas below the surface, [anathema to the environmental extremists] -development of which can be prevented by commandeering the land. I live in a county way up north which is the poster child for Agenda 21, which has ICLEI actively depriving farmers of water rights, use of their land and related psychobabble of sustainability. The NGOs with fancy names and government grants are perpetrating these insults on good American citizens working to feed the country. This is what is playing out in Nevada. Bundy's ranch is the last one left in his county - the Feds have intimidated and bought out all the others.

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Incidents of trains, usually those containing coal or oil, are readily aired on the lamestream media news. I fell to wondering why they should be falling off the rails often in remote stretches of the country. I admit to having a naturally suspicious mind these days - could it be that some groups with an ultra green agenda are fiddling around making things look bad?

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Ferndale WA school board member [and our friend] is in trouble for speaking out against a huge bond for rebuilding the High School. At 123 million $s it is a figure way beyond what that community can support. The recent election saw it fail big time. Now the rest of the school board has turned on our friend accusing him of not getting their permission to express his point of view on a local radio station. However, because of their negative reaction, he has succeeded in teaching Ferndale school kids and parents the value of the First amendment guarantee of the freedom to speak. The red flags are plain to see.

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Recently voters in WA state local elections voted for a minimum wage for workers around SeaTac airport of $15.00 per hour - yes - minimum. Well they began implementing this at the same timereducing the work week from 5 days to 4 days. - I call that a Pyrrhic victory. Now preezy O is calling for minimum wage increases nationally to $10 per hour - am wondering how wise is that?

   Safetydude  And make dinner, spend time with the kids and put them to bed.

If $10.00 or $15.00/HR is a 'living' wage, wouldn't $30, $40 or maybe even $55.00/HR be better?

Why are we, as tax-payers, preventing anyone from living a good life, which I'm sure they deserve, on our tab?

If I could give away my neighbor's money I bet I would be as popular BHO.

Lady Thatcher said it years ago; '...the the trouble with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people's money'..., or something like that.

By the way; BHO has raised the wages for gov. contractors to $10.10/HR by excutive order.

   Balogreene  Hey EC, in 1975, fresh out of college, I was so happy to make $7,500 a year. It came out to $92.00 take home a week. $165 - rent, $65.00 - car payment. I thought I was poor. Now, I own a house, and make considerably more, oddly, it is still a struggle.
