Protect Your Property

by Roni Bell Sylvester

Each time a government employee and one of their taxpayer funded buddies target the land and water they want to "steal," they pitch the endangered species act (ESA) at the property owner.

They blatantly violate a major NEPA requirement: "agency must determine if the action has the potential to affect the quality of the human environment." Yes. That's correct. "Quality of the human environment!" NEPA requires "Human dimension, customs and cultures and economic impact" of the ... area before it's "disturbed."

Instead, land and water thieves make a claim -"Gee, we think there's a species on your property that we have to protect. You're hereby ordered to stop doing business as usual so we can take a look see."

That very minute they deny you from using your property, they've won!

Look at how affectively they used the spotted owl, wolves, prairie rats, the infamous non-existent Preble's jumping mouse and now the sage grouse, to shut down individual livelihoods and decimate entire communities!

Up north, they use the Polar bear to steal property.

My question to property owners: "Why do you let government employees get you a little bit pregnant in the first place?"

Stop letting them on your property!

NO ONE may access your property without your permission (warrant etc.).

Post the No Trespassing sign that includes the language "no immunity for criminal trespass by government parties."

Demand each person who wants access to your property sign a Property Admittance Agreement. If they're a government employee, demand they fill out and sign a Public Servants Questionnaire!

You can find the protection forms and sign on Land And Water USA.

By allowing government employees (EPA et al) and their buddies (TNC et al) tromp all over your property, you may as well hand over your deeds and move into their plotted "vertical communities."

Please realize that by not protecting your property you jeopardize your neighbor's property.

"By ignoring the costs associated with a species' listing, the incremental approach fails to ensure that the economic hardships felt by private property owners and state governments are greatly discounted. "
