The local lefty blogger is orgasmic in his desire to label people. So, what the heck, I have been called every name in the book by liberals and "extremist" is simply the most tame. But that is the style of liberals who try ad change the vernacular to suit them and their ideals.
Gay used to be a word used for a fun time by all. Heck it defined a whole decade in the 1890's. Now it means a homosexual man. How did that happen? "Deniers" is a later one. If a person did not accept the hoax of "global warming" they were labeled as "deniers". Now, with most of the country under a terrible winter, this all seems rather ridiculous. There are others but the libs are undaunted in their quest to mis-direct and mis-inforn. Orwell would nod his head in agreement when word's meanings were changed. The propagandists of the left have a bottomless pit of alternative descriptions and definitions.
I was asked to peruse the liberal's blog and lo and behold, the premier "cut and paste" fellow, Steve Frisch found a quote from a book written by a fellow named Tim Duane. Now this Duane character came to town during the General Plan fiasco during the 90's. He was invited by our local liberal politicians but Duane always denied that. I was interviewed by him (others from Oregon too) and he placed many of my comments in his book. The book was about the landuse wars and his position was in favor of more and more regulations. Anyway TheFrisch found this quote and I must say, I had forgot it. But it is as true today and my positions expressed are still mine today. You all can decide if they are true and have been practised by the government and the eco groups.
So Here is the quote from Dyane's book I stand by it today.
“The Cold War may be over between the United States and the now defunct
Soviet Union, but the battle for freedom and democracy continues for
Juvinall in the Sierra Nevada foothills. “The eco-socialists are part of
a larger movement,” he says, “which includes the environmental
movement, that has attempted to destroy the principle of individual
rights. The policies enacted by these earth worshipers are enmeshed in
every aspect of our lives. Over time it becomes easier to control
citizens through higher taxes, fees, assessments and other exactions.”
He then quotes from a article in Ecosocialist Review that calls for
people to “identify themselves as planetary citizens,” adding that when
you identify yourself as a planetary citizen, you must give up your
national identity along with the rights and freedoms guaranteed in the
Constitution.” Juvinall then puts a conspiratorial spin on the
relationship between local land use planning, the planetary “socialist
agenda” and the complete loss of individual rights. “These attempts at
planetizing us are being accomplished through the land use process.
They know that local government is the easiest place to accomplish their
agenda. Using ‘greedy developer’ large landowners, and the desire for
open space and wildlife as their springboard they hope to convince us to
become planetary citizens. Local general plans, bio-regional plans,
regional governance (with attendant regional planning) become justified
mechanisms to them because "they are not concerned about individuals. ”
Look all around you. See the thousands of laws and regulations passed by the liberal politicians on just about all aspects of your lives. If I was wrong about things why did they pass another 100,000 laws and rules to control you? Look at all the problems they have with the XL Pipeline? Or fracking? Timber salvage? How about the locking up of our prime energy laden lands by Obama and here, Jerry Brown. Even the California Coastal Commission is trying to regulate the "waters" of the USA past the state's jurisdiction. Look at the Tahoe fascist regulations. Or the use of the 3 inch Delta Smelt as a way to use the ESA and deny our farmers their water. It is all happening and will keep happening until there is a cutoff of the free money. Congress and the Legislature have to deny "grants" of our taxpayers money (bonds too) to groups and organizations whose purpose is to take our individual and congregate rights away.
Look at the loans and grants in just the Department of Agriculture's budget. Billions are given away to prop up these eco thieves who would not survive on their own. I urge our Congressmen and anyone else who has the power or possibility of power, to stop this destruction of America by people I accurately identified many years ago.
