The green plague is killing more lives than the black plaque. Shame on President Bush.So many fools have bought into this green extreme nonsense that both parties are playing the same cards to buy votes. Global warming and alternative energy are the same color of cards. They are being dealt from the bottom of the same deck of stacked green cards.These slimy green cards are worthless financially in the free market and can only be used for pretend value through the fools market of make believe. It is costing all of us dearly for others to play this game pandering to green social nonsense. If the socialist fools who play and believe in these games would leave the free market forces alone, the truth would rise to the top instead of being constantly stirred to the bottom by the government pigs feeding at the public pig trough. We all know who they are.How long is it going to take before people realize that asking the government to feed you merely starves everyone else. Worst of all, it strangles the truth along with individual freedom and liberty. Only the free market and the constitution can distill the truth. Freedom is the only game in town that plays an honest game if it is left alone abiding by the constitutional standards drawn up by our forefathers. Go to your family, churches or charities if you need help. There is nothing in the constitution that authorizes the government to fund handouts to entire social classes and industries.You may not like freedom when you are loosing and you may love it when you are winning. Freedom is neither left or right. Freedom is not an environmental extremist nor a green alternative energy suckling pig nor a fossil fuel hating global warming "Chicken Little".You either have freedom or you don't. We do not have freedom in America, we lost it long ago. We loose more freedom every day when another pig comes up to the public trough and cannot feed itself or takes private property. The government owns 40% of the land and it is out taking more and there have been 10,000 cases of eminent domain takings in the last 5 years.We loose our individual freedoms when environmental extremists and government pigs cannot make a living on their own and they conjure up global warming hysteria bunk that has no scientific consensus. Global warming and cooling has been happening throughout the life of this planet. See attached email. This is a natural cycle not caused by man.There is no such thing as "alternative energy", it is a green feel good cliche. Green energy is not cost effective, i.e. it generates no profit without huge government grants and tax credits. Solar, wind and fuel cells are an economical joke at the commercial levels. They are only a green wet dream provided because the government politicians are being pressured to give money to some green university and green contractor. Why do you think Puget Sound Energy goes to the trouble of inserting a green coupon in every billing begging you to donate some money to the green machine?There is enough fossil fuel under our feet to power our commercial and private needs for centuries. There is new evidence that oil supplies are growing. There are huge new oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico and even larger oil finds in Canada. Fossil fuel extraction and power generation technology grows more precise and efficient each year like every other technology. Those green bullies who conjure up black oil spills and pollution live in the dark ages. They have no technical background to even broach the concept of cost effective commercial power demand and supply using fossil and nuclear fuel. France is supplies itself nearly on nuclear energy alone.If the green terrorist had their way we would all be paying $100,000 for solar cars with another $100,000 of government grant money and another $100,000 for the University of Washington to do an impact study (on how it impacts them) and another $100,000 to the WEA, 1000 Friends of Washington, CELP, Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy and the Audubon Society. What we would get is a financial and technical nightmare and a big bill. This is what happens when you ask the State and academia to bring a product to the market that the free market already knows is not cost effective. What the State and the UW considers fair is more government money that makes it more fair for them and their buddies to slurp up at the public pig trough. That means less free market and less money for you and more slop in the pig trough for the UW.This magic green card game that the environmentalist created 40 some years ago is an illusion, hoax and fraud on the American people. This grand green game is played for the same reason all over the world. This game is too shut down our abundance of private and public land and shut down our abundance of fossil fuel and help certain political forces to remain in power. The green game and "the more big government" game robs our earnings and calls it taxes and robs our family and calls it estate taxes and robs our business and calls it business tax.The green government robs our land and calls it eminent domain, growth management act, critical area ordinances, wet lands, dry lands, habitat lands, historic area lands, park lands, forest lands, buffer lands, swamp lands, tide lands, endangered species land, public lands, wilderness lands, government lands, smart growth land, sustaining development land.Our land rights and private property ownership are fast disappearing. Our jobs are disappearing. Our business is gone offshore. Our freedom is gone. Our vote is worthless. Our boundaries are unprotected. The value of our dollar grows weaker. We are no longer a government of the people by the people for the people. God is gone in school and public places. Our government is kidnapped by green social and industrial nonsense. We have no representation of the people. We have closed door deals. Green arm twisting deals behind closed doors. How self destructive is that?Freedom is free but freedom is not without cost. Many of our relatives have died for freedom. However, green socialism and green industrialism will cost you more than just your life. It will enslave our future generations forever. Just like what is happening to the rural and private land and home owners all over America. Just like what is happening to our energy supply. Just like what is happening in our educational system. We are all being suffocated by the lack of freedom!Do not be fooled by this green environmental card con game. It is a deadly game of black boot socialism and globalism using fear to corner the market on freedom. It is killing us and will ultimately destroy those people who support it and destroy those cities who foster this nonsense. Capitalism is the only game in town. There is a war between the dark side and the free side. The dark side can only feed itself at the public pig trough by consuming the energy of the free side. The free side is willingly to risk it all and live on what they can honestly earn. The free side has become a bonded servant of the dark side.Vote YES on I-933 to throw off the yoke of the dark side.Jack VenrickRural Property and Home OwnerFed Up with the Green Government Con GamesEnumclaw, WAB.S.

I welcome your comments and suggestions. Sincerely, William Perry Pendley President and Chief Legal Officer P.S. If you would like to support the work of Mountain States Legal Foundation, please click here. BUSH ADMINISTRATION PROPOSES MASSIVE LAND GRAB Days ago, in a proposal unnoticed by the media, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced the largest land grab since President Clinton designated massive national monuments across the West. When Clinton decreed 1.9 million acres of federal land in Utah as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument to kill a vast underground coal mine that would have employed 1,000 locals in the most economically depressed region of southern Utah, generated $20 million in annual revenue, and produced environmentally-compliant coal for generating electricity, there were protests across the West. When the Bush Administration published its plans, there was barely a ripple of protest. There should have been a tidal wave of opposition! What Bush officials propose would make Clinton and his Interior Secretary, Bruce Babbitt, proud indeed. While Clinton's national monument proclamations affected only federal land, the Bush plan affects primarily state- and privately-owned land. Moreover, while Clinton designated a total of 5.9 million acres to receive special federal protection as national monuments, the Bush plan would impose a protective federal overlay upon 11.5 million acres (18,000 square miles) or an area the size of the states of Massachusetts and Maryland combined. Formally entitled "Revised Designation of Critical Habitat for the Contiguous United States Distinct Population Segment of the Canada Lynx" and published in the Federal Register on November 9, 2005, the plan results from a March 2000 ruling by a federal district court in the District of Columbia. There, after ten years of litigation, a host of environmental groups succeeded in efforts to require the FWS to use the Endangered Species Act (ESA) to protect the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) in the contiguous United States. That was only the beginning. After the FWS placed the lynx on the ESA list in July 2003, Defenders of Wildlife urged the federal court to order the FWS to designate critical habitat in the lower 48, notwithstanding that the lynx's natural habit is in Canada-hence its name. In January 2004, the court issued that mandate with a November 1, 2006, deadline. After issuing its plan a year ahead of schedule-when was the last time that happened-in August 2006, the FWS released its "Economic Analysis of Critical Habitat Designation for the Canada Lynx." A month later, the FWS published its "Draft Environmental Assessment: Designation of Critical Habitat for the Contiguous United States Distinct Population Segment of the Canada Lynx," then opened the matter up for public comments, which ended last month. There is much that is worthy of comment, mostly of the negative variety. Under the plan, 8.4 million acres of private land would be included, at a cost, over twenty years, of $889 million. Although the plan includes Washington, Idaho, Montana, Minnesota, and Maine, its greatest impact is on the latter three with one million acres affected in both northwestern Montana and northeastern Minnesota and six million included in northern Maine. Thousands of landowners will find their ability to use their private property greatly constrained, if litigious environmental groups have anything to say about it, and they will. Worst of all, the FWS admits that, because the historic range of lynx only marginally includes the lower 48, the designation of critical habitat will achieve little, if anything. For radical environmental groups, however, designation of critical habitat for the Canada lynx will achieve one thing: it will provide them with another tool to bar the use of private property coveted by the groups. In one troubling action, the federal court that ruled on the lynx has retained jurisdiction, apparently to preside over the implementation of the habitat rule. That is very bad news for landowners, those who respect private property, and those who love freedom. No wonder scores of Members of Congress, in rare bi-partisan agreement, have introduced bills to reform "critical habitat" authority. Unfortunately, such reform will come too late for those facing the Bush Administration's most audacious land grab. If you would like to support Mountain States Legal Foundation, click below.
