   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.

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Sharing - our Whatcom County Citizens for Freedom [aka TEA party people] put on a Constitutional Knowledge Bowl for middle schoolers a week ago. It attracted both home schoolers and Christian school students, can't get the public schools yet - the kids had prepared well for their day in the hot seat -they seemed on the whole better informed than the audience! Net result,they all said they enjoyed the challenge and experience, and the nice prizes too. We committed to working to save the country's and their futures, and are planning the next such annual event

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Thanks to a hat tip from an L Dotter, I heard about Dr.Crenshaw who was a duty surgeon at Parkland Hospital Dallas when the President was assassinated. I know it is not fashionable to talk about this issue after Nov 22nd, however I ordered the good doctor's book 'Trauma Room One' - it is riveting - a real first hand report. Oswald absolutely was not the single shooter, and something happened to the casket and body between the Secret Service making off with his body before the legal autopsy required by Texas law, and what was changed by the time of the military. autopsy in Bethesda.

   Belwhatter  Thank you - I find the mcadams account to be more of an attempt to discredit a man who was faced with a horrifying once in a lifetime situation. Dr.Crenshaw came the closest to defining the lost and destroyed evidence, the ignoring by the Warren Commission of the many witnesses, who often died under strange circumstances after the fact. Intimidation was rife.The intriguing conflict between the Secret Service and the FBI is frightening. I have a friend who worked for the CIA who maintains they had nothing to do with the assassination, which may be true or not. Of the many books I have read on this subject, the events in the trauma room were the missing link. Our government, I am forced to believe, has a seedy past.

   Mike PHX  Indeed it does, Bel, including the hand Kennedy had in the assassination of South Vietnam's Diem, just a few weeks before his own. Oh, the irony.
But I don't think our government had anything to do with Kennedy's. Oswald was a lunatic whose life was becoming as desperate as a rat's in a coffee can. Then he was shot by another lunatic.
Sometimes history is just history. Like a cigar.

   Fireball27  Ask yourself this. If someone took something of great value from the "godfather" do you think he would let it go? How much do you think the mob casinos in Cuba were worth? When Kennedy let the Cuban resistance down during the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the "godfather" got mad. And as they say, "payback is a ....!"

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Yesterday Boeing machinists union rejected a long term contract that was needed to keep the work on the new 777x plane for the plants at Seattle and Everett. Governor Inslee called a special session of the legislature last week to get a $9 billion tax concession approved to encourage Boeing to stay in Washington State. Last time the machinists struck it cost Boeing $23 billion. This is a catch 22 situation - if Boeing accepts the tax concession and if the machinists don't accept the extended contract, then Gov. Inslee wants an $11.5 billion gas tax increase, like robbing Peter to pay Paul, and a mighty big Boeing contract is up for bids in 'right to work' states. Many smaller supply companies will be severely affected. Question is, how do we go on living with rapacious union demands in this era of cutbacks and belt tightening?

   StormCnter  It's a bluff on each side, Belwhatter. The unions even say it out loud. It will all work out and the 777X will remain in Washington. The sad part is that the 70+ cities Boeing will be visiting to "scout" for an alternative production site will be preparing expensive, time-consuming presentations that aren't going to be seriously considered. Because it's a Kabuki dance.

   Belwhatter posted on Main Page The Lobby  the question must be asked - our politicians are rushing headlong into military action - the country is over 90% against it - but who actually used the sarin nerve gas? It makes no sense that Assad would do it. Documented evidence exists in Middle East newspapers [The Turkish Weekly June 6th] that the rebels have been supplied or got their hands on the poison gas and used it in the attempt to draw America in - the dupes we have in "leadership" leave me cold - is Obama saving face and passing the buck onto the ever stupid republicans?
