Dear BLM; The Eyes of Texas have you in the Crosshairs!

God Bless Texas 2Republicans 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.

Read Greg Abbott’s letter to the Bureau of Land Management

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

It’s a Game of Numbers and WE Can Win

As Army shrinks, young officers being pushed out

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) – After the 9/11 attacks, tens of thousands of young men and women joined the military, heading for the rugged mountains of Afghanistan and dusty deserts of Iraq.

Many of them now are officers in the Army with multiple combat deployments under their belts. But as the wars wind down and Pentagon budgets shrink, a lot of them are being told they have to leave. SOURCE

How many of you remember me asking this question? Just how much can the ~Gun Grabbers~ really do?

Already down to about 522,000, the Army must shrink to 490,000 by October 2015, and then to 450,000 two years later. If automatic budget cuts resume, the Army will have to get down to 420,000 – a size service leaders say may not allow them to wage even one major, prolonged military campaign.

OK, now let’s consider this; how many GUN OWNERS are there in the good old USA?

That’s a seemingly obvious question without a straightforward answer. There’s no universal gun registry, and thus not a simple way to pin down the exact number of firearms in the U.S.

There are estimates, however. According to the Geneva-based Small Arms Survey – the leading source of international public information about firearms – the U.S. has the best-armed civilian population in the world, with an estimated 270 million total guns. That’s an average of 89 firearms for every 100 residents — far ahead of Yemen, which comes in second with about 55 firearms for every 100 people, or Switzerland, which is third with 46 guns for every 100 people. SOURCE

As the old saying goes; let’s do the math;

• Military: around 500K members
• American gun owners: Between 50/55 MILLION

Granted; the military does have all the cool toys, but at the rate the military is shrinking under the regime of a Muslim Homo, anti-American piece of garbage, Barack Hussein Obama, the U.S. military barely has enough members to defend the nation from foreign threats.

They sure as hell don’t have enough members to TAKE and CONTROL this nation on the orders of Obama and/or Eric Holder. It’s simple math folks.

The American people, the RIGHT, Conservatives, GOP and moderates that are always worried about gun confiscation need to put their worries in their pocket.

All of these *radical*, far right nutbags that believe they will have to take to the woods and hills, well, go! Just GO! You’re as goofy as any anti-gun Liberal Democrat could ever be, just in a different direction. Continue reading

Could a battle over States Rights lead to Civil War?

Nevada range war: Western states move to take over federal land

The fight over Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cows grazing illegally on federal land is a symbol of a much larger issue: control of land in western states, where the federal government is dominant.

Like a mustang tied to a fence post, many westerners for years have resisted Uncle Sam’s control of land they say more properly belongs to states or counties – or to nobody at all except the ranchers, miners, and loggers who work the land for its natural resources.

The tussle over Cliven Bundy’s 400 cows – grazing on federal land, although he refuses to pay the required fees now amounting to more than $1 million – sharpens this debate, which has featured state legislators, county officials, environmentalists, and federal judges (all of whom have ruled against Mr. Bundy).

In Salt Lake City Friday, representatives from Utah, Idaho, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, Oregon, and Washington met for a “Legislative Summit on the Transfer of Public Lands.” SOURCE

The controversy brought on by the Bureau of Land Management against Cliven Bundy has stirred a lot of emotions for many American Patriots.

While I fear that Mr. Bundy may indeed be breaking the law as it is written and as it was adjudicated. I also know in my heart that not ALL laws are right and just.

Purpose of the Federal Govt

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

While this may not be a true Tenth Amendment issue, I do believe that it IS a States Rights issue, and it is my belief that the STATES have to be the governing source of the people while the Federal government takes a seriously limited role.

Let’s face facts; the Federal government has become far too big, far too invasive and has a tendency to want to *run our lives* for us, in nearly every way. That is NOT what the Founding Fathers had in mind regarding the purpose of the Federal government and as to what its duty to We, The People really is. Continue reading
