TESRA, the ESA and the Truth

v. New London jerked the blinders from Americans. It proved: Yes,
It Can Happen in Your Back Yard.
ESA on steroids will negatively impact your property rights
and freedom. The answer that actually saves American
resource providers and property rights is Total and
Full Repeal of the Endangered Species Act. TESRA would make
resource providing a paragraph in a history book.
answer is not TESRA. Total Repeal is the only
honest answer to the scourge that has sought to wipe America's slate
of her faithful and honorable, hardworking private property owners
and the real stewards of species, both great and small.
thoughtful read of the words that make up this acronym -- The
Threatened and Endangered Species Recovery Act of 2005 -- should, in
and of itself, run up a raft of Red Flags.
in the ESA is being "reformed" -- unless by using that
word the meaning is: "Made more Draconian" and made worse
so as to remove more and more resource providers from their ability
to provide. Newly added -- but never defined -- phrases like
"Candidate Species" and "Monitor Species" also
smack of the Intent to strip more and more property rights from
those already made into the REAL endangered species: farmers,
fishermen, loggers, miners, and ranchers. This is NOT about
"saving" any alleged "endangered" or
"threatened" specie. If it were, it would be giving back
to private ownership (and I do NOT mean to "The Nature
Conservancy" or to "land trusts")
like the ESA, is a freedom stealer. It is not about
"saving" anything. It is about Controlling Everything. We
must not allow Any Version of the ESA to continue adding pages to
Victim Directories http://www.propertyrightsresearch.org/2005/articles05/victimsdirectoriesfrms.htm
DeWeese (American Policy Center), Margaret Byfield (Wayne Hage's
daughter, Stewards of the Range & Liberty Matters), Oregon
attorney Jim Buchal, Leo Schwartz (The Virginia Land Rights
Coalition), R.J. Smith (Competitive Enterprise Institute) and
others, have valid concerns that continue to be “untouchable” by
most media. This fact only gives our concerns more credibility.
is so much to lose with TESRA -- far worse than the ESA -- and so
much to gain and regain by Total Repeal of the ESA. Every
recreationist in America will see the loss of access for recreation
continue, until there is no access left. It's called incrementalism.
It's like a slow-acting poison, but the end result is the same.
many people have been hoodwinked by Language Deception, which speaks
volumes for its employment as a weapon of mass destruction.
we call almost six million acres of forest -- and the homes and ways
of life that have gone up in smoke in America, this year alone --
mass destruction? Where are the self-proclaimed
"environmentalists" and their hue and cry when 6,000,000
acres of supposedly prized "habitat" burns? Ah, they are
silent, and that silence speaks volumes.
incremental taking of the water responsibly utilized by farmers and
irrigators to grow food to feed us all, is another means of Control
of Land, Water and People, thereby Taking Property Rights and
is a warning to all resource providers (ranchers, farmers,
irrigators, loggers, miners, commercial fishermen) that the Intent,
Plan, Agenda, etc., is to rid America of all that dare think they
have property rights and should be able to responsibly utilize
in positions of power intend to eradicate everyone who owns an
operational farm, hatchery, forest, mine, mill, ranch, etc. TESRA is
one of their tools.

can gift current and future generations of Americans with the
twin gifts of property rights and freedom -- but we have much
educating of elected officials yet to do.
is worse than the ESA and Saves Nothing, while expanding to Control
And that is the Truth.
