Barack Obama’s White House Rural Council: Central Economic Planning For America’s Heartland

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Barack Obama has issued a brand new executive order that establishes a White House Rural Council.  This Rural Council has been given the task of developing “public-private partnerships” that will seek to bring the “economic prosperity” of our big cities to rural America.  In other words, the U.S. government and the big corporations are going to team up to dominate the economies of our small towns and rural communities just like they dominate the economies of all of our big cities.  So should those that live in rural America be excited about this?  After all, the U.S. government and the big corporations have done such a great job of bringing “economic prosperity” to places like Detroit, Michigan and Camden, New Jersey.  Won’t it be great to have the federal government come in and tell rural communities how they should be doing things?

The chair of the White House Rural Council will be Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.  Vilsack is a former governor of Iowa and a Democrat.  Swing states like Iowa will be key in 2012, and so perhaps Obama is trying to show that he really cares for middle America.

But it is really hard to forget the remarks that Obama made about rural Americans during the 2008 campaign.

In particular, the following quote about the “bitterness” of those living in rural America got a lot of attention at the time….

“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Look, the vast majority of the people who live in rural America do not want to hear that they need to let go of their guns or their religion.

And most of them certainly do not want the federal government to come in and tell them how to run their local economies.

But according to Obama, the U.S. government “has an important role to play” in managing the economies of rural communities.  The following is a direct quote from the executive order establishing the White House Rural Council….

Though rural communities face numerous challenges, they also present enormous economic potential. The Federal Government has an important role to play in order to expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands.

To many Americans, all of this will sound really great.  The federal government is going to come in and help the “backwoods folk” catch up with the rest of us.  What could be wrong with that?

Well, the truth is that whenever the federal government gets its fingers into something it tends to really mess it up.  Many of the biggest problems our country is facing today can be traced directly back to Washington D.C.

Many small towns and rural communities are doing just fine without the interference of the federal government.  In fact, large numbers of Americans have purposely moved out to rural areas because they don’t want the interference of the federal government in their lives.

But according to this new executive order, the Obama administration plans to stick its itchy little fingers into just about every aspect of rural life.  One of the stated goals of the White House Rural Council is to do the following….

coordinate and increase the effectiveness of Federal engagement with rural stakeholders, including agricultural organizations, small businesses, education and training institutions, health-care providers, telecommunications services providers, research and land grant institutions, law enforcement, State, local, and tribal governments, and nongovernmental organizations regarding the needs of rural America

This is yet another example of how we are rapidly becoming a centrally-planned economy.

Today, there are way too many Americans that expect the federal government to solve all their problems and take care of them from birth to death.

But that is not what our founding fathers intended, and our federal government has become so corrupt and so incompetent that it could not do those things even if we wanted it to.

Before the federal government “fixes” the problems of rural America, perhaps it should focus on “fixing” many of the other problems it has created first….

*Growing numbers of military veterans cannot find jobs once they leave the U.S. military.  In fiscal 2008, the Pentagon spent $450 million on unemployment benefits for military vets.  In fiscal 2010, the Pentagon spent almost twice as much – $882 million.  According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for military veterans between the ages of 18 and 24 is more than 30%.

*The housing collapse that the Federal Reserve and the U.S. government caused is a nightmare that never seems to end.  According to the New York Times, at the current pace it will take 62 years for the banks to repossess all of the homes that are in severe default or foreclosure in the state of New York.

*The recent commodity price increases caused by the Federal Reserve have resulted in much higher prices at the gas pump and at the grocery store.  These higher prices are hitting the poor and the lower middle class much harder than they are hitting the wealthy.

*The federal government has piled up the biggest debt in the history of the world and the U.S. dollar is dying.  Standard & Poor’s has altered its outlook on U.S. government debt from “stable” to “negative” and is warning that the U.S. could soon lose its prized AAA rating.  Russian presidential economic adviser Arkady Dvorkovich says that his nation is going to keep dumping U.S. government debt.  China has been dumping U.S. government debt.  The entire U.S. financial system is on the verge of financial collapse and the federal government seems to be powerless to make any meaningful changes.

But instead of fixing the glaring problems that are staring them directly in the face, the control freaks and the bureaucrats in Washington D.C. seem obsessed with figuring out more ways to interfere in our lives.

Over the past couple of months, bad economic news has been pouring in almost constantly.  Our economy appears to be in danger of breaking apart.  We are in the midst of a horrific economic crisis and nobody is sure what is going to happen next.

So please excuse the good folks of rural America if they are not in the mood to put up with federal government interference in their communities.

The federal government has failed so dramatically so many times before that it is really hard to have any faith that the federal government can do much of anything right at this point.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!
    BEAM ME UP,SCOTTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Stephen Byerly

    I grew up in a tiny farm town in western Indiana. We do just fine without the “help” of the federal and state governments. We get along just fine with our God and our guns, without the violent crime (property crimes happen but we just get even if we find out who it was), without the influx of other morally devoid “cultures.” Hell, even the prolific potheads don’t bother anyone out here… The meth heads might but we know who they are and we avoid them.

    I say to those that want to move out to the fields… If you’re going to be friendly, show hospitality, and work hard, come on out, we will show you the same courtesy. Try to run the place, though, and you’ll get run out quicker than you can get all your stuff unpacked

    • Christopher Taylor

      Amen! I could say the exact same thing about my small town in west-central Indiana.

      We handle petty crimes here in a discrete and swift manner.

      Memo to Obummer: Bug off!

  • McKinley Morganfield

    I hate to break it to those DC critters, but their scheme will not pass the sniff test as far as 70-80% of the residents of rural and small town Iowa are concerned. I’m positive the same is true in ND, SD, NE, & WY. We’re not doing so bad all on our lonesome. We all have unemployment well below the national average. We have positive economic growth in the 3-8% range. Thanks, but no thanks. We’ve seen the havoc that follows your plans. Keep your unintended consequences inside the beltway.

  • HeyNowHereNow

    I’m reminded of a wall slogan I often saw during my engineering days:

    “Those who can keep their heads while all others are losing theirs – truly does not understand the seriousness of the situation.”

    So it is with the rural areas. It is true that a lot of rural America has been able to keep an original sense of decency, the principles that made the nation great, and common sense. However, this is because they have been largely spared the intrusion and interference from the central government while it concentrates on rolling out its police state in the urban areas first.

    They have no idea how bad things are – and how bad they’re gonna get. “Ohhhhh, it’s not all bad as all that”, I hear constantly from those that are just…ignorant, both urban and rural. They don’t read history, they aren’t reading or watching anything but propaganda press, and they are deeply mired in Normalcy Bias.

    The rural areas may think they’ll be left alone, but that ain’t gonna happen. Hitler came to power with a bunch of street thugs called the SA. At the time, the German army, the Wermacht, was an honorable institution that followed the Law of the Land, and even put down an attempted coup by Hitler’s beer hall thugs early on. So, Hitler then recruited the scummiest crap on the streets to be a large internal “security agency” (any of this sounding familiar?), and used them to intimidate and terrorize the opposition and the populace in the urban areas to gain power. Later, he used the SA to spread his rule through the rest of Germany. After that, he made a deal with the Wermacht to disband the SA (by killing the leaders and drafting the SA street scum), in exchange for a Wermacht oath of loyalty to him personally.

    Obama has often mentioned the need for an internal security force as large as the military, i.e. – he wants an SA too. And voila – in steps the T-SA, now going nationwide to shopping malls, bus stations, school proms and every street corner throughout America (cuz’ AL CIAda is everywhere), these unlicensed gutter scum even commanding the professional military and police during street shakedown operations. Coincidence of acronyms? I think not. The PTB is very big on psychological resonances of themes and occultish rituals.

    So, rural America better wake the hell up, since they won’t need to go to the big city for police state tyranny – it’s coming to them.

    • Otown Right Guy

      But don’t forget it was the W Bush and his neocon republicans who gave us the T-SA. Sure Obama is a disaster too. But small town “Christian” evangelicals love the federal government when it bombs foreigners and pushes the police state. They eat it up. They wave flags and pledge allegiance. They are always ready, willing and able to kill people from countries they can not find on a map.

      • Charles_Texas

        You have no clue about what small town USA is like. You make discusting comments because you are from the big city. Live in our shoes for a while and you will find out we DON’T need the big city. BUT the big city NEEDS us.

        We provide your food, most of the material for your clothing, and most of the energy you use for heat and cooling.

        We don’t like people being killed anymore than anybody else. Oh by the way, I know where Afganastan is, Iraq, the middle east, etc. Maybe you should check your big city education ideas at the door. You will find out most of rural America is educated, and follows the news on exactly how bad it is in the big city. Why do you think we DON’T live there.

    • Buzz Hacksaw

      I agree, but Obama is merely a front man for the Central Planners from Hell! None of this Fukishima, Omaha, 9/11 etc, etc… is an accident. It’s mere presence or omission in the MSM is evidence of manipulation. It’s all related in some way. We are truly being herded, like cattle or sheep, and the Obama’s are merely another superstar distraction for the herd.
      The US has been overthrown by the same A H’ls they booted out years ago. The Central Planners from Hell! More and more they run the show.

      “Obama has often mentioned the need for an internal security force as large as the military, i.e. – he wants an SA too. And voila – in steps the T-SA, now going nationwide to shopping malls, bus stations, school proms and every street corner throughout America…”

      Obama is not a doppelganger of Hitler. He is trying to do what Woodrow Wilson put in place with the Espionage Act of 1917, Sedition Act of 1918, Committee on Public Information, and most sinister of all, the American Protective League. If you don’t know the history of Wilson’s policies check it out to better understand BHO’s agenda.

  • Gary2

    I care nothing about the debt/deficit. I did not cause it nor did I benefit from it in the good times. Tax the shit out of the rich and wall street to pay this off if it is so important (its not). Seems to be more political rather than economic. I did not share in any gains and am not willing to share in any pain. They can take any shared sacrifice and shove it up their ass. I am not the only one who feels this way.

    I simply want to be able to have a family supporting job with a good retirement package so I am not poor when I get older. I want the American dream I saw my parents and their parents have. I want this for my four children. Instead I get to take my children to the food pantry to eat expired food. F-This-Shit!

    I will work hard, probably be the best worker ever. I have tons of good reviews, hell I even saved someones life in the hospital lobby before I was downsized 4 months later. I have all the thank you awards to prove this. I was told I saved the hospital a huge lawsuit as it was the hospitals fault it happened (heavy metal bar falling from top of lobby onto a wheelchair person. I ran over and caught/took the hit by deflecting it with my body. I guess they forgot about this 4 months later when I was downsized out).

    Until there is more demand all the tax cuts for this rich and corporations will do nothing but make the wealth and income inequality worse.

    I see a french style revolution coming.

    • Tim

      Well, that kind of attitude is not going to make things any better. Face it, the American Dream is dead. It’s not coming back, at least not any time soon. Retirement is a thing of the past. Right now, things are pretty good, which is why we don’t have large-scale civil unrest in America, in my opinion. Enjoy these good times because some very difficult times are coming. I understand your outrage, but you’re not the only one going through financial pain. At least you have a job, while millions of Americans are unemployed. Count your blessings.

      • Gary2

        If you call these “good times” I would hate to see the bad times. Underemployment is probably higher than unemployment. Both are terrible.

      • Gary2

        You may be right but it really makes me mad. I did NOTHING to cause the american dream to die, NOTHING. WTF Why should folks like me suffer???I see a french style revolution coming as TONS of people feel like me.

        I voted for Obama but he has been a profound disappointment. He is way too conservative.

    • mondobeyondo

      Me too. I want the same things that I believed in when I was a young boy. The wife, 2-4 kids, house with a nice green yard and white picket fence a la “Leave It to Beaver”, a nice car, a stable, steady job where you could retire after 40 years and they’d give you a gold watch or maybe a car, summer vacations… That’s the American Dream I grew up believing in.

      Something went terribly wrong along the way – I don’t know what this crap is we’re living through today, but it sure isn’t any American Dream. Foreclosures, food stamps and chronic unemployment…that’s not in the script! Damn, my former employer didn’t even give me a Timex when I was laid off!!

  • 007

    Obama has never seen a central planning socialist program he did not like. He seems totally oblivious that whatever it spends will have to be borrowed and ultimately paid by the taxpayers. The unintended consequences and market perversions will likely screw rural America up even worse.

    Yep, another blue ribbon Obama panel. I’m sure this will fix everything.

    Welcome to the Obama depression…hope and change has been replaced by “it could be worse”.

  • Chuck D

    The reason the federal government won’t make changes is because they are afraid of civil unrest. Just imagine what would happen if they cut out entitlement programs.

    • mondobeyondo

      Expect austerity measures to come to the U.S. in a few years, maybe a few months. You can’t put out a Greece fire by pouring more water, um, money on it.

  • mark

    This is sad news for us in the country. This is Obama’s solution to pushing UN mandate Agenda 21. As soon as you brought the quote about NGO’s, the red flag was raised. A good source to learn about Agenda 21 would be to read articles by Henry Lamb. This is the next move to remove more freedom from our lives. We really need to vote the Dems out of office. This is beyond the pale. People you need to prepare by storing food and supplies so that you are in a position to say no to Obama. Between the food safty act of last year sticking their noses in our growing food and the new rules to come down the pike with his new interest in rural life and also the feds trying to control all the water. Remember the quote that if you control oil you control nations, if you control food you control people.

  • TWC

    It is so obvious that there is wicked organization behind all the political matter to take away privacy and to let the new world order to come to effect. “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” Revelation 13:3.

  • TWC

    Obama’s eagerness to subjugate U.S. sovereignty to the whims of the UN.

    “The third wall which the papacy will bring down in order to take control of the entire world is the symbolic ‘wall of national sovereignty.’ The structure which will be used to control the world is the United Nations. Already within the laws which have been developed by the United Nations, we find the legal principles designed to remove national sovereignty. This organization has already written and passed laws which supercede the national laws of individual countries. In fact, many of these countries –including the United States– have already signed these agreements, placing the laws of the individual nations in subjection to the laws of the world government. In order for the papacy to command the entire world, national sovereignty must be removed.” {The Final Rise and Fall of the King of the North, p.37, by J. Pippenger}

    Book of Revelation 16:13 says, “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon [United Nation], and out of the mouth of the beast [Papacy/Rome/Pope], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [United states].”

    This policy will lead to the end of the big government as we know it. when dissenting religious people tried leaving England in the early 17th century for the colonies; the English government tried capturing them on their way to the colonies. Many got away from the central government’s plans for them, but one noticeable exception was a family headed for Massachussets. The father was sentenced to a prison term, and the son was Oliver Cromwell. A state that leaves its people no place for dissent from central planning, leaves its people no choice but to resist, when peaceful coexistence would be the first choice of the people. The state is setting about creating the resistance it seeks to eliminate.

    @ Mark: Agreed! This has Agenda 21 written all over it!

    I love this quote at the very end of the “order”:

    “This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or
    agents, or any other person.”

    In other words, when we screw everything up, like we always do, you’ll have no recourse at law for any kind of restitution from the folks who made such a mess of things.

      But how many of those small town farmers just LOVE government intervention in the form of agricultural subsidies. You try to cut that off and oh how they whine! Bob POS-scum-bag Dole made a career out of pushing federal farm programs to benefit the parasitic, fat-f*** farmers from Kansas.

      • James

        Those small town farmers should forget the subsidies, and concentrate on growing their own food and selling the rest to local people. Those subsidies serve only to let the U.S. government trade with other countries for things we can’t get here. Farmers only get a small portion of the total money the government and corporations make on the grain,meat, and fiber you grow.

  • Brady

    This is interesting new information. My folks live off in a rural town and their house has been the HQ to my plans when the economy takes a dump on everyone. The idea that we need to be taught how to prosper by the government that is slowly dying in front of the whole world is insulting at best. Stay off our property!

  • My wife and I keep walkie-talkies near us during
    the day to keep in touch, since we live in a
    rural town (Kiowa, Colorado). Last night, we
    heard a bunch of Mexican-speaking individuals
    having lengthy conversations. It’s scary….
    who knows, maybe this was one or more carloads
    of coyotes hauling yet more illegal aliens into
    Kansas, Colorado, or ???? What’s more, there’s
    an advertisement on another website in Spanish
    for an I-pod. That’s what I want, here in my
    America, is to see advertisements geared to
    people who can’t even speak my language.
    I’m sure diversity is high on Oscama’s list
    of priorities for our rural areas. After all,
    look at all the love the folks in Dearborn,
    Michigan have for their new Islamic friends.

  • Also, we have I don’t know how many dope-
    growing operations going on in our subdivision.
    Last I heard, it is a federal crime to grow or
    distribute marijuana. Why, then, aren’t these
    dopers locked up in prison? Every day, carloads
    of illegal aliens drive up and down the main
    highway through our town, people grow and use
    dope illegally, but hey, it’s all good, bro.
    Yet, county police officers park just outside of
    town with radar, then, when you pull INTO town,
    the town cop is sitting there waiting for you.
    Cops would rather bust the hard-working,
    innocent Americans for the easy dollars giving
    out traffic tickets than get to work busting
    illegal mexicans and dope dealers. Oscama
    said he wouldn’t bother the dope dealers.
    What? When did this become ‘legal’? Why, we
    should sue the fed gov for non-performance of
    their duties. Every day, my life is at risk
    from these illegal activities that the fed is
    turning their heads away from.

    Not only will they enslave the farm villages , they will do it to the cheers of an adoring crowd. Those who have pumped years and money into becoming great farmers , hoping for a pay off. Are in for a rude awakening , if you don’t farm the land. The goverment will appoint someone to do it . Ask the ukranians what happened when the stalinista’s rolled in and took everything.

    Some of the first federal actions were to use violence in the form of federal troops. To enforce creditor rights and too make sure the slop trough the parasites feed out of was filled. Look up whiskey rebellion and shay’s rebellion for info. The whole freedom and rights is a bunch of stuff and nonsense and has been right since the genociding of the natives , ensuing theft of the land was over. No one has had any rights since this country’s inception , at best you were not worth bothering with .Because the technology to track and slap around “free people” was not advanced enough.

  • Otown Right Guy

    Please don’t tell me small-townees are for limited government. Many small towns, especially in the south, would dry up and blow away if it weren’t for some nearby military installation. And then you have all of the federal farm programs. For instance, if you have land in NC, the feds will pay you NOT TO GROW tobacco.

  • Krabby

    Obama & co are sealing their fate with this push, having again failed to sense the countries mood. this is a thinly veiled attempt to do as the Chinese are doing, seek to control the agro areas in expectation of massive food shortages in the upcoming devaluation and the de-reserving of the fed notes worldwide. A desperate move IMO.

  • Josh

    I just have to mention this since I saw someone complaining about food safety.

    Our food isn’t safe. Food production is like playing God in modern America. Nothing is grown naturally, and almost all of it is dangerous. That’s probably the factory farming industry’s fault. But it’s demand that drives production, so it’s our fault.

    As the economy continues to tank while the folks in DC dither and dance to the tune of the big banks; I think the federal, state, and metropolitan governments will have plenty of problems on their hands in the high population areas. I don’t think they’ll find it easy to control the unrest and violence in the big cities and will have few resources to ‘control’ rural areas.

  • mondobeyondo

    Well, like Hank Williams Jr. sang, “A country boy can survive”. But what about all the city slickers who are hungry and scared as they run away from their urban nightmares? The ones who didn’t prepare in time? The ones whose farming expertise consists of growing a tomato plant in a clay flower pot? Many of them are not gonna make it.

  • Ken

    I grew up on a family farm in Ky., and I can tell you that this has nothing to do with religion or guns. There is a little thing known as self-sufficiency which is inimical to current gov’t policy. My family raised all of their own food and during WW II, the only things we had to buy were sugar and coffee. I remember seeing hundreds of ration coupons which we never had to use. My father butchered all of our meat and raised all of our vegetables.
    I also remember during the 50″s all these gov’t types coming around to tell my father how mmuch of certain crops he could raise, and then coming around to measure them to make sure he wasn’t raising a bushel more than he was supposed to.
    Government destroyed local markets and eventually came around and bought our farm, and there was no choice. They were going to buy it or take it over anyhow. Now there are humongous warehouses and a flood wall where our farm used to be.
    Now I assume they want to take over the whole operation, and dictate even more to rural people.
    Personally, I would like to go back to rural living, because at least then we had to pride of being able to support ourselves and our families.
    Now the gov’t evidentally wants to deny people even that modest goal.

Now, I know that was a mistake. This is evil, pure and simple. Time to re-read The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

    The service at the UU Church, at 175 Wendell Avenue in Pittsfield, on June 26, at 10:00 AM, will be on the need for a stronger UN, to do away with war, and on how Esperanto is an ideal first step to simplify the work of the UN while REDUCING costs – also that Esperanto can simplify AND enhance education while REDUCING its costs, as a first step toward applying it at the UN. — Stressing the idea of WORKING to PRODUCE the mechanisms needed for an end of war, rather than merely wishing, praying, and demonstrating for peace!
    This will include a few choice quotes from prominent world leaders, including many US Presidents, on the pressing need for a democratic world government. The desperate need is to do away with nuclear weapons, reducing national armies to national police forces, replacing WAR with LAW for the resolution of national conflicts, and applying the savings from the waste and destruction of war toward the solution of real practical problems, including Climate Change! This service will include some popular songs in Esperanto, on various themes, with translation on printed text, to demonstrate the sounds of this language.

      Step one – Get rid of the UN.
      As long as there are people there will be war. look at your history and learn from it. Idealism is a lie.
      Esperanto is a farce. If it was so great, why is it failing? It is clumsy and non scientific. This is why english is used as the international language at all airports and in science.

    Nations rise and nations fall. There has always been a New World Order. The times in which we live is just the New World Order of the last New World Order. Ancient Egypt, Old Testament Israel, Assyria, Babylon, Roman Empire, ancient Greece… Same game, different players. There is nothing new under the sun. It’s always been about food, natural resources. Whoever controls the food controls the people. Money (debt) is just a means of stealing your power. If a nation only has one million dollars which the bankers lend, the bankers want one million dollars back PLUS INTEREST! But wait… there is JUST ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN CIRCULATION!!! The only way to pay them back with interest is to liquidate some human resources, you know, the poor unfortunate folk at the bottom of the economic pyramid, and raise prices on the things they control like Food and Oil. There is absolutely NO WAY to “just work harder” all the time and voila!… the American Dream falls in your lap. You can’t beat a horse to “just run faster”. My, my. You people actually support a government that would steal from you to give to the bankers. The borrower is slave to the lender. Always has been, always will be.

    Hey Obummer! Show what you can do in your own town first. Clean up DC! Oh wait, we love what you did as Governor! You really know your stuff… NOT!

    This is exactly what the RC&D (Resource Conservation and Development)programs have been doing for over 40 years. Grassroots programs with overhead through USDA-NRCS, and congress zero’d them out — Shame Shame; BUT many are still running strong – Why reinvent the wheel – find your local RC&D serveral in every state…

    Tom Vilsack when he was govenor of Iowa, went down to Mexico, and told them that there was plenty of work in Iowa. He left them a map on how to get there.

    Now Iowa is flooded with Mexicans and there is little to no jobs for native Iowans.

    The Iowa government will no enforce immigration law, and is a santuary state.

    If Iowa can’t trust him how can the rest of the farm belt?

  • Quartermain

    Tom Vilsack when he was govenor of Iowa went down to Mexico to recruit workers from there.

    Now there is few to no jobs for native Iowans.

    If he would do it to his own state, think of what he would do to the rest of the farm belt.

    If it were up to the International Bankers/Illuminati; we would not be able to grow food in our own backyards. Why? Because these globalist devils want total control over what you eat and what you can even drink. So water will also be a premium. These demons want to play God; but the True and Real God of heaven will first plague them with His mighty plagues for 42 months of hell on the Earth.

    But first, they will kill and martyr millions and millions of people who wouldn’t take their mark of the beast chips in their forehead or hand. And if you take this Mark (chip)it will mean that you have joined Satan and his antichrist beast leader; and their leaders. And according to Revelation 14:9-11, you will be tormented 24/7.

    Well said moses737…

    About 4 years ago I decided to choose a more simpler life for my family and bought 3 quarters off a relative and started farming for a living, hadn’t worked on a farm since I was a kid, hard work, but it’s good for the soul. Most rural dudes hate the fed gov’t prying into their lives, I had an audit done on me a while back and it was like they were accusing me of being a liar… (so I photocopied all my receipts and mailed the box in to them)…

    If the fed’s send out ‘agents’ to ‘help’ us rural folks… they’d best be respectful of our property and not trespass… think I’ll put up signs on the barb wire saying ‘trespassers will be shot’…

  • kate lovell

    GOD forbid. We the people of God’s countryside “DONOT” want the federal government in on anything that we do. We enjoy our freedom of speech and freedom of going and coming. We have a right to grow out own veggies and fruit on our own property of which we pay taxes to and as Glench wrote on june 23rd we want a more simple life, not a government controlled life. We need to start making up those signs that say ‘KEEP OUT-TRESSPASSERS WILL BE SHOT ON THE SPOT”!!!!!!!!!!try me. Nobody is going to protect you or your property so if you don’t do it yourself it wont get done and you know that it wont get done! ALL SMALL TOWNS STAND UNITED OR THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT WILL TAKE OVER YOU LAND, YOUR LIFE, YOUR EVERYTHING IF THEY THINK THEY CAN. keep watch and keep the peace.

    Here in rural Colorado we still have our religion, guns, and more importantly a huge measure of good old fashion common sense and love of the land. We cherish the vision our forefathers created and passed down through the generations. We are doing reasonably well. We do NOT require or desire you assistance. Kindly leave us alone and concentrate instead on the destruction left in your wake. Should the day ever come when we need your assistance, we know where to find you. Until then, stay out of our beautiful farms, businesses, and countrysides and simply leave us alone. We are managing quite well without you.

  • Just what we need Obama to get his fingers into the rural life. May as well screw that up like he has everything else.

    It’s hard enough to fight our HOA, let alone a government weinnie. Try raising chickens for fresh eggs on your own property or try cutting your electric bill by 30% by using a clothes line! With government backing, would making my home safe by removing all firearms or closely watching what I’m planting in my garden come next? What about the rain that falls on my house and I collect in rain water containers. Will that be taxed or worse…illegal? Scary.

  • What is at the root of the economic collapse?

    Administration failure.

    A conscientious administrator does not accept failure or ignore failure and NEVER justifies failure. Intelligent administrators will assign whatever awareness and resources which are necessary to solve the worst problems first to prevent cascading damage. A mindful administrator will have resources on hand to act in all emergency situations.

    Enforcing this code of conduct at all administrative levels will end repetitive negligence and prevent future corruption.

    Acting with focused unity creates the necessary enforcement.

    Let’s raise the bar.
