Agenda 21 exposed
To the Editor: Americans are realizing that the 2008 elections handed our republic over to the globalist, NWO utopian ideologues who demand our sovereignty be handed over to the United Nations in order to take Americans' wealth and spread it around the world. To accomplish this goal, UN Agenda 21 bypasses Senate approval using non-governmental organizations (NGO's like International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives) to fund and promote "sustainable development and growth." Executive Orders, state and local commissioners, czars and the EPA are used to force compliance, and the end justifies the means.
These ideologues blame the world's problems on American's insistence on private property, private business, single-family homes, private car ownership, and privately owned farms, all of which, they claim, are destructive to the environment and prevent the socialist/communist plan to redistribute the wealth. They view National Sovereignty as a selfish "social injustice" and, therefore, all borders should be open and our resources available to the world.
On Jan. 16, 2012 the National Republican Committee issued "The Resolution Exposing United Nations Agenda 21" as a destructive and insidious program and warns it is a violation of law and not passed by the Senate. Therefore, they reject its radical policies and reject any grant funds be provided for it, including Smart Growth, Wildlands Projects, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, and other Green or Alternative projects which destroy our way of life.
Happy with ruling
To the Editor: I am pleased with the results of the P& Z meeting about oil drilling near Vista Ridge. I bought land there with most of my savings hoping to have a nice community and lake area to build and live in the near future.
As it stands, our property values had probably gone down not only due to the economy but also the prospect of having to fight the oil company (hopefully not perpetually) as they continue to appeal this decision. Is there a point where they cannot keep appealing a decision like this anymore?? I hope so.
Otherwise the negative effects of this issue will continue to pester and stress property owners there who bought and built there because it seemed like a very nice peaceful community.
If we do lose eventually (which I hope does not ever happen) I hope we at least recover all our investments both financial and otherwise.
To the Editor: In Mr. Jessup's letter about the State of the Union he is correct that government intervention caused the financial/mortgage crisis; however, he fails to mention the intricacies of its root cause.
The repeal of the Glass-Stegall Act of 1933 by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 which was passed by then Pres. Bill Clinton with overwhelming support by House and Senate Republicans.
