WHY BUY THE COW WHEN YOU GET THE MILK FOR FREE?

The National Park Service has figured out that there isn’t any need to actually acquire land through outright purchase any longer. All they have to do to bring us under Agenda 21 Sustainable Development they are sworn to promote, is offer a bit more of your great grandchildren’s money to people who will line up at the government trough to “tell your stories.” Then the story tellers set you under an unelected, unaccountable “management entity” who will, through your local officials, let you know what you may and may not do with your property and how much it might cost you to figure out if you can get permission to do what you would like to do. There are a few tools they use to accomplish this, with the dominant one being the establishment of your area as a “National Heritage Area,” or a “Scenic By way” or a “Preserve America” designation.
This article is going to focus on “Heritage Areas.” As near as I can tell, there are thirty seven of them in progress across the country and most people are unaware of them and the dangers they pose to private property use and ownership. My hope is to show you how these things are established and also how to, hopefully, effectively fight them.
