Timber Companies spraying Roundup??…

We were talking the other day about what is taking place on the coastal regions of Oregon and Washington. The timber companies have decide to spray the newly logged off hillsides with pesticides (similar to “Roundup”). You know the one!? Most Americans use it to kill off weeds on the sidewalks, driveways and patios. Yes that Roundup.

So of course the reasoning is that the underbrush that grows up, after a hillside is logged off, is competing too much with newly planted trees and so must be hindered. Brush like blackberries, grass, foxglove, young alder saplings, and other low growth. These pesticides (herbicides) don’t just fall from the delivery system they use they get picked up and drift with the wind. The intention is to spray on a newly planted hillside, BUT….   Where do you think it drifts to and what other animal and plant life get sprayed as well.

The elk herds in southwest Washington have hoof rot. Wonder what is causing that? Oregon and Washington are big states for the save the Salmon bunch and lots and lots of money has already been spent to help increase the salmon runs in all of the creeks and rivers that flow to the ocean. Gee, I wonder if more money will be spent to save the salmon for another 40 or 50 years. Looks like they will have to because now they have to study the salmon to see if they are being dwarfed, mutated and not spawning, or unable to.  And now the fish and wildlife people get to get money to study the elk to see why the hoof rot is happening. They will find mutations and other health problems with the wildlife.

What ever happened to, its illegal to spray dangerous herbicides and pesticides. With over-spray or wind drift, what is happening with the water supply? The water supply feeds water for human consumption as well as wildlife including bear, raccoon, squirrel, chipmunk, deer, elk, lynx, bobcat, mouse, salamander, frogs, bald eagle, osprey, salmon, trout,  beaver, moles, voles, the spotted owl (for gods sake), banana slug, snail, blue heron, woodpecker, Murrelet, Peregrine falcon, turtle,  goose, crane, Blue jay, hummingbirds, red tail hawk, goshawks, harrier hawk,  grouse,  wolves, coyote,  weasel,  mink, Bees, ferret plover, rabbit and many numerous insects. Look at this list and then compare it to the endangered species list and you will find quite a few on there. The eagle is a protected specie which carries an enormous fine but do they think of what the spray is doing to them? What about the precious wetland?

When did it become okay to spray something more dangerous than DDT???

This is happening internationally also! What will other countries do about this?

 

I am adding some information about roundup and what it is doing to people and wildlife. The effects on the forage or food source for wildlife DOES have adverse affects. The timber companies spraying t5his toxic chemical in order to allow trees to grow better and stronger is a myth. Please read the following articles about the dangers of glysophate (Roundup).

Water rights….

While we the American people have been focused on Obama Care or whatever care you call it, the ecology people have been hard at work maneuvering to take our water rights.

My husband and I always talked about the fact that none of the endangered species acts, regarding salmon, was never about the fish. The hidden agenda was controlling the water rights of the American people,

If this growing agenda and movement withing the GO’s continue, you and I will have to pay for every drop of water that flows on our lands.

The control of every drop of water is evidenced in the “Rain Tax”:

In 2010 the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency ordered Maryland to reduce storm-water runoff into the Chesapeake Bay so that nitrogen levels fall 22 percent and phosphorus falls 15 percent from current amounts. The price tag: $14.8 billion.

And where do we get the $14.8 billion? By taxing so-called “impervious surfaces,” anything that prevents rain water from seeping into the earth (roofs, driveways, patios, sidewalks, etc.) thereby causing storm water run off. In other words, a rain tax.

The EPA ordered Maryland to raise the money (an unfunded mandate), Maryland ordered its 10 largest counties to raise the money (another unfunded mandate) and, now, each of those counties is putting a local rain tax in place by July 1.[via the The Gazette]:

Another move by the EPA to force different entities to control water. A move to control every drop of water all across  the country.

The state law is kind of squishy. It can be spent to build and maintain stream and wetland restoration projects. And, of course, a lot of it will go to “monitoring, inspection, enforcement, review of storm-water management plans and permit applications and mapping of impervious surfaces.” In other words, hiring more bureaucrats to administer the rain tax program.

It can also be spent on “public education and outreach” (whatever that means) and on “grants to nonprofit organizations” (i.e. to the greenies who pushed the tax through the various levels of government).

Yet the tax does not apply to government entities only private citizens, no-profits and religious properties.

This local compact is not just in your backyard, it is nationwide. This is a larger agenda from the UN. The ultimate goal is to control the people. If you control the water you control the people. We all know water is important to sustain life. Our bodies are made up of 57% water. Big business operate under different rules than you and I do. If they add the right taxes to the ecology movement can utilize the water resource anyway they want.(If it is beneficial and sustainable anything is okay).

In the meantime the government manipulates the press to focus on a single controversy so the American people do not pay attention to how property rights,  water rights, and other freedom rights are being taken away.

The untouchable subject….

I find really fascinating that not many people are paying attention let alone commenting on this subject. The subject is how the Eco (Ecology Groups) are just rounding up land all over this country and best of all using taxpayer money to do it. Oh yes everyone will tell you that all of it is not taxpayer money and yes we should take care of the planet, because after all they (?) know how to do it.

Now I ask you who is they? Why do they know how to take care of the planet better than a multi- generational farmer or rancher. Back some 30 some years ago The Nature Conservancy decided that ranchers in Colorado did not really know how to take care of the land. So, they decided that nominal ranches ( under 100 acres should be taken away and put under the conservator ship of themselves. They, meaning the Nature Conservancy and other such groups had the better education, knowledge and know how to take care of the land. They told the unsuspecting public that the cattle were destroying the land and it, needed to be put into conservation in perpetuity. This is an important point so pay attention.

Leap forward to approximately 2002 (30 some years later). I came across some information that described land you could BUY. Yes, purchase it for your own personal use, but there were stipulations to the purchase. You could buy 5 acres, you would be able to enjoy 5000 acres at your leisure. You could call down to a barn and have a horse readied for you to ride. When you were done you could return the horse to the barn and they would take care of the horse, free of charge because of course your purchased 5 acres. You could build, with the stipulation, that it was a “GREEN” approved house. You could even join in the cattle ranching enterprise if you were so inclined. Here’s the rub: The barn operations where Nature Conservancy employees, the approval for a “GREEN” house was thru Nature Conservancy and the cattle that were running the 5000 acres were owned by, yes you got it, The Nature Conservancy.

I ask you why kick the cattle ranchers off of their land, explain that the land would be saved in perpetuity and then later sell some of the land and operate a working cattle ranch on the very same land? In Perpetuity means: endless or indefinitely long duration or existence; eternity. definition from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/perpetuity. All land that is picked up by an ecology group is taken as perpetual conservation land and is not intended for resale by said group. The group purchasing the land is after all a NON-PROFIT organization. These groups are out to save land for themselves not the people They see as a religious thing to do. They see it as their duty to take it away from you because you own it. They see it as a parental right to the planet. They also see it as a guardianship to the animals. Since animals have no human voice they will speak for them.

These groups will always tell you they will not deal with unwilling sellers. but time and time again if they get away with it they will take it however they can. There is a network of people in this country that have an unlimited supply of money that will goo to great lengths to get land into the hands of their revered group of conservators.

There is a town really it is becoming a big city in southwest Washington that successfully  implemented a tax on its people. This tax money is given to the ecology groups in the area for its own use. Whether it be for “purchasing land” or purchasing development rights or rehabilitating habitat. It is freely given to them by the local government. Some people in this same town also feel that it is their religious duty to tithe 10% of their income to the local ECO group.

No one wants to touch this. If it does not happen in my back yard it ain’t happenin’ seems to be the prevailing attitude of many. People all over the country are waking up to the government failing us why are they not waking up to the real takings of land from the people.

More to come…..
