Republicans warn BLM eyeing land grab along Texas-Oklahoma border
Texas officials are raising alarm that the Bureau of Land Management, on the heels of its dust-up with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, might be eyeing a massive land grab in northern Texas.
The under-the-radar issue has caught the attention of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who fired off a letter on Tuesday to BLM Director Neil Kornze saying the agency “appears to be threatening” the private property rights of “hard-working Texans.”
“Decisions of this magnitude must not be made inside a bureaucratic black box,” wrote Abbott, also a Republican gubernatorial candidate. SOURCE
The Bureau of Land Management is about to pick a fight that they will wish they hadn’t. I am talking about a fight that they will lose and one that very easily could cause the United States to lose the state of Texas in the process.
Something that the Washington blow-hards need to consider is this; Texas CAN survive, not just survive, but we can actually prosper without the United States. The United States will suffer greatly without Texas though.
I have read the letter linked above and I am of the opinion that Greg Abbott is NOT about to take ANY *stuff* off of the federal government and the BLM.
Something the BLM needs to consider is this; your average, every day, run of the mill, man and woman on the street Texans aren’t going to take any *stuff* off of you people either.
It’s THAT simple, and if you think the folks in Nevada turned out to stand against you federal land grabbing, good for nothing bunch of liars and Obama lovers, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
At issue are thousands of acres of land on the Texas side of the Red River, along the border between Texas and Oklahoma. Officials recently have raised concern that the BLM might be looking at claiming 90,000 acres of land as part of the public domain.
The agency, though, argues that any land in question was long ago determined to be public property.
It certainly strikes me as *strange* how all of a sudden the Feds are claiming all of this land, trying to seize land and then claiming that the land in question, and its ownership was all settled *long ago*. Continue reading
