Bob Bowman
www.thepatriots.us

Dr. Bowman is considered by many across America, as "the best public speaker in the country” Lt Col, USAF, ret. (101 Combat Missions as Fighter Pilot in Vietnam) Is bringing his 2009 Patriot Tour to town! Dr. Bowman challenges us to “Take Back America” for the people.
He explains why we need a government that:

(1) Follows the Constitution
(2) Honors the Truth, and
(3) Serves the People.

Think what a difference that would make! No more imperial presidency. No nuclear attack on Iran. No more undeclared wars of aggression. No more spying on the American people. No more jailing of dissidents. No more corporations importing and exploiting millions of illegal immigrants to drive down wages. No more exporting of jobs. No more NAFTA. No more North American Union. No more government lies, false-flag attacks, and cover-ups. No more corporate welfare. No more health plans written by insurance companies and pharmaceutical manufacturers. No more energy policies written by Exxon and Enron. No more trillions in debt. Most importantly, no more using our sons and daughters to kill Arabs for the oil companies.
Let’s “Take Back America!!”

Good Neighbor Law is proud to be the first to publish Dr. Bowman's latest column, "War and Christian Theology: Implications for Church and State." For more on Dr. Bob Bowman and "The Patriots US" -please go to: www.thepatriots.us

Ron Ewart

Ron Ewart Articles

The National Association of Rural Landowners (NARLO) is a non-profit corporation, duly licensed in the State of Washington.  It was formed in response to draconian land use ordinances that were passed by King County in Washington State (Seattle) in the late Fall of 2004, after vociferous opposition from rural landowners.  NARLO's mission is to begin the long process of restoring, preserving and protecting Constitutional property rights and returning this country to a Constitutional Republic.  Government has done a great job of dividing us up into little battle groups where we are essentially impotent at a national level.  We will change all that with the noisy voices and the vast wealth tied up in the land of the American rural landowner.  The land is our power, if we will just use that power, before we lose it.  We welcome donations and volunteers who believe as we do, that government abuses against rural landowners have gone on for far too long and a day of reckoning is at hand.  To learn more, visit our website at www.narlo.org.
 
President Roosevelt, in his 1933 inaugural address said, "..The only thing we have to fear is fear itself".  I maintain that the only thing we have to fear is unbridled government.  The only way unbridled government can exist is if WE THE PEOPLE allow it."

Harriet Hageman

Harriet Hageman Articles

Harriet Hageman, who grew up on a ranch near Fort Laramie, Wyoming, currently practices law in Cheyenne. She attended Casper College on a Livestock Judging Scholarship from 1981-1983. She received her B.S. Degree in Business Administration from the University of Wyoming in 1986. In 1989 she graduated from the University of Wyoming College of Law. Her first position was as a clerk for the Honorable James E. Barrett, a Judge on the United States Circuit Court for the Tenth Judicial Circuit. She is currently licensed to practice law in the States of Wyoming and Nebraska. She has also practiced in the States of Michigan and Colorado.

Harriet has worked on many water and natural resource matters, including Nebraska v. Wyoming; the “roadless litigation”; challenges to the Fish & Wildlife Service’s management and recovery of the Canadian gray wolf and other species; protection of private property from contaminated discharges; predator control; defense of Wyoming’s “open range” law; protection of grazing rights on BLM and private lands; and protection of water rights as a Wyoming attorney. She and Kara represent several irrigation districts around the State, addressing such matters as protection of irrigated agriculture and the impact of land use changes.

Harriet’s practice in Nebraska is primarily addressed to the relationship between ground water and surface water, including analysis and implementation of the Nebraska Ground Water Management and Protection Act. She is one of the attorneys of record in Spear T Ranch, Inc., v. Knaub et al. She also works with local Natural Resource Districts to deal with the impacts of the Endangered Species Act and the Republican River Compact.

Harriet and Kara are actively involved with addressing the impact of federal and state regulations on land and water use. In 2004, in a continuing effort to inform the general public regarding that regulatory environment, Harriet and Kara formed the Wyoming Conservation Alliance. They are working to increase public participation at both the State and Federal regulatory level. They hope to expand the WCA concept into a regional and national resource.

Ms. Hageman is a member of the Board of Directors for the Wyoming Water Association, the Advisory Board of the Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute, and the Steering Committee for the Wyoming Business Alliance.
