After living through the economic disaster of the "spotted owl" fiasco in the Northwest, I think I see the same thing coming in the Gunnison Sage Grouse Rangewide Conservation Plan. There were whole towns devastated then so the question becomes how damaging is the sage grouse plan going to be to the Delta, Montrose, Gunnison, Mesa, Garfield counties and San Juan County in Utah?
I am referring to the research that Doug Homan was defending in last week's DCI. The underlying purpose: No mining, drilling and no agriculture, which are the mainstays, at least in Delta and Montrose counties. Don't we need to ask ourselves where these restrictions might come from and what entity's agenda might be driving this? Afraid to hear the words "United Nations Agenda 21" again? The ultimate idea of Agenda 21 is to restrict, and remove human activities from huge areas of land, herding humans into tightly restricted enclaves of city/urban habitation so they can be better controlled. Also, you better take away their ability to defend themselves from such tyranny, so get their guns while you're at it.
Part of this comes through what is now called sustainable development, signed on by our president in 1993. That gives credence to the BLM, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife agencies as part of the executive branch using powers under the Endangered Species Act to put untold regulations on private property, particularly if any of those property owners have ever accepted any government incentives on their property.
Wake up America, wake up Delta County! These regulations by and through this bird are a prime example when the law is not used to protect individual life, liberty and property of humans. As French economist, legislator and philosopher Frederic Bestiat stated, "... it becomes perverted ... used by the unscrupulous to exploit the life, liberty, and property of others. In the process, 'they' turn this perversion into a right, making criminals out of those who try to defend their right of property." The writing is on the wall folks with this sage grouse mania.
Now, let's talk about Ed Marston and his attack on the lady that wrote last week. Let's compare our bills and usage from today versus last year, the year before and the year before that. Is our DMEA board really watching out for what is best for its customers as Ed defends their spending at our expense? Yes, Glen Black, a conflict of interest, but not for any of us to worry about because all the board has to do is amend the bylaws, correct? DMEA is another entity that is mandating U.N. Agenda 21/sustainable development with their smart meters, and incentives to replace all of our light bulbs with bulbs that have mercury that are made in China.
Please don't let these things pass by unnoticed. I know we are under terrific pressure in so many areas — education, government, religion, family, economics and more. Persistent vigilance is required to not let our country slip onto the ash heap of past countries/governments. America is unique in all the history of civilization, are we allowing its demise by our complacency?
