Comment Period for Klamath Dams Draft EIS/EIR Extended
Comment Period Will End on December 30, 2011
The following statement was issued today by Dennis Lynch, Program Manager for the Secretarial Determination on Klamath River dam removal, regarding the extension of the public comment period for the Draft Environmental

Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR): 

“The decision to remove or retain four Klamath River dams is of immense importance to the many Klamath Basin communities.  In addition to the peer reviewed science and the environmental analysis, public comments on the Draft EIS/EIR is also an important and critical component in shaping this decision.

The Department of the Interior and the California Department of Fish and Game listened to the numerous requests to extend the comment period on this lengthy Draft EIS/EIR and determined that it is in the best interest of the public to give additional time to review and comment.

 Therefore, we have extended the comment period through Friday, December 30, 2011.”
Information about submitting comments on the Draft EIS/EIR can be found at KlamathRestoration.gov.

The fix is in: Republicans make sure Obama serves second term

I have concluded that we may as well dispense with the coming media circus surrounding the 2012 presidential election.  Think of it: no phony “debates”, no stage shows, no mud slinging ads, no having to hear the same lame lies and statements as one candidate after another tries to convince us that he/she will reverse the terrible destructive course the US  is on.  We don’t need to subject ourselves to any of it; the fix is in and Obama wins hands down, no competition……or at least none that the Republican party will acknowledge.  Why upset the status quo?

How do I know this?

The Republican party could easily sweep the elections and retake the White House simply by running Ron Paul (R) TX.  Poll after poll shows Paul garnering  25% with GOP voters and as much as 70% or more with the public  from BOTH sides of the political spectrum. 

During the GOP debate, CBS twice removed a candidate poll because the support for Ron Paul showed that he was far and away the leading choice for Republican voters and that was not supposed to happen!

So why wouldn’t the Republican party run what is clearly a winning candidate?  Hmmmmm.  Because Ron Paul would put an end to much of the power Republicans and Democrats enjoy as a result of their own self-pandering, power grabbing and unconstitutional activity. 

 Instead they are offering the sorriest collection of non-starters most likely ever assembled for a presidential race and are actively blacking out and refusing to acknowledge the popularity of Paul with the voters and what would be a sure-fire land-slide election. More

We know from history that when a country loses its ability to feed its own population, its demise is soon to follow.  As a nation we are being systematically, incrementally and intentionally driven to the point where we cannot feed our own people.  The quickest way to collapse the economic viability of a nation is to destroy its agricultural sector.  It isn’t gold or silver, global investments and markets, or multi-national corporations and illegal agreements that sustain economies.  What does sustain and support a vibrant economy is a strong independent agricultural sector.   

The underlying backbone to every economic model is agriculture.  And that model is not predicated upon anything other than local, hands on, food production in all its forms.  Key to undermining and destroying that model is the intentional destruction of the right to engage in agricultural activity using arbitrary regulations, laws, rules and agency police state enforcement actions perpetrated against independent and/or family owned agricultural operations.  Creating barriers to entry into agriculture is key to collapsing an independent agricultural sector which is what got us the fake food safety bill passed by “Dirty Harry” Reid, and his merry band of corporate hiney-hugging, US senators. 

While these operations may be small financially, in comparison to big Ag industrialized activities, the independent sector comprises the bulk of our food supply.  It is this supply that our own government is determined to eradicate in favor of global corporate stakeholders. 

And now they come for the cows…….. More
