We the People- NOT government - OWN federal lands. We the People hire government employees to “manage”- NOT “control” - these lands. Through chain of title and beneficial use, historic law supports the fact that some users of federal lands have long established historic rights that have never been extinguished.
These rights include ownership of water and forage, and possibly even the land. Federal employees have the legal responsibility to obey the authority of those who have said ownerships, and not the reverse. LAW USA
"Property is surely a right of mankind as real as liberty...The moment the
idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the
laws of God, and that there is not force of law and public justice
to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence."
John Adams Defense of the Constitutions of Government 1787.

November 16, 2012 Question for Property Owners - "Do you, as a land (property) owner, really know how much power the land owner has; or do you just do as you are told by clerks? Obviously "they" know how much - read their "awareness" statement and draw your own conclusion."]
"In 1868 men came out and brought papers. We could not read them, and they did not tell us truly what was in them...When I reached Washington the Great Father (President of the United States) explained to me...that the interpreters had deceived me. All I want is right and justice. They (federal government) made us many promises, more than I can remember. But they kept but one--They promised to take our land...and they took it." Chief Red Cloud of the Ogalala

March 29, 2013 Climate Seers as Blind Guides
In our continuing efforts to show that research is useful for public policy, we used evidence-based forecasting methods for the global warming issue. The results contrast with the forecasts accepted by many governments around the world. In this Op-Ed, “Climate Seers as Blind Guides,” in the Washington Times, we make recommendations for the use of forecasting for policy issues. (Our original title was “Mr. President, we have a climate forecasting problem.”) This version includes links to the key papers that were cited.

Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction?
Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying on our backs and hugging the elusive phantom of hope, until our enemies have bound us hand and foot?

LAW USA encourages private property owners to require each person (Whether government employee or private citizen.) who sets foot on your private property sign thisProperty Admittance Agreement (PAA).
It includes the language... "Grantee does not have permission to share any activity (includes hunting, fishing, dirt moving) or material (includes land, water, structure, foliage, photography, electronic image or video) they see, with any government, government agent, government contractor, representative, private entity, non-profit agent, non-government public organization or non-profit private organization."
...out of consideration of that one, who comes on your property to be the eyes and ears for those who seek to seize control of your land and water. Here's proof: "I would appreciate hearing from any (land trust/conservation easement/interested public) who has a formal policy on the reporting (to a regulatory or non-regulatory agency) of listed (State and Federal) species that they discover during a site visit to a private property." (From a circulated email.)
