I must deviate from my story to share a little something with you about something that sticks in my craw. The deviation is not to far from the ultimate point I will be making in my story, about losing American land, yet you must know just how it works ultimately. The systematized method of taking land and lifestyles.
The other day we were driving around a town looking at houses. Not for the reason of purchasing, just to enjoy the architecture of old homes. Many yards and their landscaping with flowers and structures adds the character of every house. We do enjoy looking at the old Victorians , craftsmen and other types, thrown in each neighborhood. Some of the newer houses are nice, they seem to lack the character of the well-built older homes. Anyway back to my deviated point, we were driving around and found a big beautiful mansion. It appeared to have a wedding party enjoying the luxury of the facility. The well manicured lawn gave the mansion a look of a centerpiece a portrait of the history of such a jewel. The wedding party added to the scene, children playing all dressed up in their finery. Gentlemen respectfully watching, as they played. It was not hard to imagine, the home, owned by a prosperous gentleman in the late 1800’s.
Low and behold the next day, reading the Sunday paper there it was, the mansion. The city had put the mansion on the open market and four offers had been made. The mansion held an important history of the city and it had been purchased to avoid demolishing this old relic. The city had held possession of the mansion for about 10 years and had invested a great deal of tax payer money. More renovation is required. One offer was reasonable, other offers were no where, near the total investment by taxpayers. One offer stood out, in my mind, raising a big red flag to me. The group appeared to be a Water Conservation Group.
Let me put the wording from the article in:
” We see the need for a center dedicated to catalyzing the efforts of multiple groups working in different parts of the human/natural landscape,” the group’s proposal states. “The center, for instance, might aid the city ( ) in supporting a group of citizens to assist in the focus on its current essential water conservation initiative,”
MIGHT? WHAT? Now can you tell me what exactly is planned for this mansion? Could you decipher THIS? What is “human/natural landscape”? What exactly is it and how does it play into water conservation? Why would the water conservation, want to buy a mansion, that is used by so many, to make memories? What does this historic mansion have to do with water conservation? And why would the tax payers fork out money to the water conservation district to buy the mansion again?
Frankly if you were to look at the United Nations “Rio Declaration on Environment and Development” and Agenda 21 you would start to see a pattern. The sustainable development and the environmental life saving programs are just ways to talk above your head and think that all these caring people are there to help you the citizen. If you really are a citizen of the United States and would love to keep the freedoms that we all share in this fine country, you might want to research the big picture and what it means to you in your town/city.
What I have just told you, gives a little taste of what I will be getting to in my story….. to be continued…..
If you have any comments on my questions or just a comment about unobtrusive statement you have read I would love to hear them?!
