Should we let another one bite the dust?

by Julie Kay Smithson

Ah, people. Some learn faster than others. Like the song, some “don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone” — but they’ve been tricked into thinking what’s gone is a species of fish or predator and not their own property rights.

LD does not always stand for “learning disability,” although that meaning, in conjunction with “language deception,” does fit and is being used to make property rights, i.e., freedom, go extinct in America.

We are speaking of the “Endangered Species Act.”

Some knew, when the de facto real estate agent, better known as the “endangered” spotted owl, was used to shut down Pacific Northwest timber and logging — that it was the harbinger of things to come.

They and a few more realized that the “endangered” “Preble’s meadow jumping mouse” would be used to stop ranching.

They and others “got it” that the “endangered” quasi-Canadian gray wolf would be used to stop hunting in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and beyond.

They and others figured right that when along came the “endangered” whatever, another resource providing industry and its property rights would be shut down and stolen.

How much commercial fishing is being shut down off the coast of China or Scandinavia, the straits of Gibraltar or the Mediterranean? None. How much ranching is being shut down in Argentina and Brazil? None.

How much logging is being shut down in other countries (where no one but government owns the resource and labor is cheap)? None.

Why then is America’s resource providing being shut down? Please, thoughtful reader, ask yourself why!

How many folks think it’s a good thing for flora, fauna and “mother earth” to all be controlled by federal government and its partners? I don’t see many hands being raised, but there are several more hands up than there were ten years ago. There’s hope, but success hinges on learning what is being done under the guise of clever professional language deception. Learn and learn how to protect your property rights and stop the bleeding of America’s property rights under such false issues! We are the world’s greatest, most caring and careful stewards of resources, yet we are being shut down — even access to federal areas that our taxpayer dollars bought are being phased out incrementally, one “wilderness area,” “watershed,” or “ecoregion” after another, and almost without a whimper of protest — although more of us are learning that it’s not really about “saving” anything, but rather about “restoring” control of everything to the rulers.

Please visit her extensive property rights research website today [here].

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.” - Attributed to Barry Goldwater.

“The three great rights are so bound together as to be essentially one right. To give a man his life, but deny him his liberty, is to take from him all that makes his life worth living. To give him his liberty, but take from him the property which is the fruit and badge of his liberty, is to still leave him a slave.” - George Sutherland, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, 1921.

Keep Marbury v. Madison (U.S. Supreme Court, 1803; never overturned) in mind always: “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.”
