…In a corrupt scheme, Sue and Settle, fireplaces next. But a half-billion dollar biomass plant is OK.
As of January 3rd, the EPA banned about 80% of the wood-burning stoves and fireplace inserts in the United States. Stoves which are used to heat 12% of the homes in America and are especially needed in outlying rural areas. Fireplaces are also being looked at.
The EPA is attempting to reduce particle pollution with new rules. Instead of limiting fine airborne particulate emissions to 15 micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m3) of air, the change will impose a maximum 12 μg/m3 limit. That is equivalent to a person smoking 3 to 4 cigarettes in a small confined space.
The draconian EPA regulations will be spread out, one will take place in March and the next in five to eight years. Stoves currently in use will not be affected but obviously, getting them repaired will become more and more difficult.
They haven’t yet gone after outdoor appliances or home heating appliances, but can they be far behind? Will people be able to heat their homes in a future controlled by extreme environmentalists? Read more at: independentsentinel.com.

The government is getting ready to seize even more land to put under federal as well as UN control. If they control the land, they control the food and they control the people. The Marxist moonbat Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, who has been on the job about 6 months, is touting the coming Jack Bootedness of the Obama Administration using conservation as a shield.

There aren’t many who didn’t dream of having a playhouse of their own when they were a child. Most of us sufficed with temporary blankets draped over furniture as an improvised fort, but a 5-year-old in Ocala, Florida, is one of the lucky ones who actually got everything he dreamed of. Built of wood, the miniature edifice looks like something out of a fairytale. It’s surrounded by lush flowers, and even has a television inside.
But according to WESH-TV, since the playhouse isn’t in compliance with the city’s zoning regulations, the D’Annunzio family could have to tear it down. Read more at: theblaze.com.
I know it seems like there’s so much to do, and that we’re always being asked to write letters, sign petitions and make phone calls – But that’s because there is. The Progressives never sleep! ADB:
Much to everyone’s surprise, SB 584, Purchase of Land by a Government Entity, was placed on the agenda of the Environmental Protection and Conservation Committee last Friday. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 2 at 4:00 pm! For more details, visit www.flsenate.gov and put 584 in the bill search engine.
This is great news because it will be an opportunity to make our case for limiting the endless purchase of property for conservation. It is time for us to act!
From the North Central Florida 912 Project’s website:
Florida Forever and the other environmental extremists feel that 28% ownership of Florida’s land is not enough. They have been calling the legislators to kill or alter bills SR 584 and HB 901. It is imperative that you call. They want the budget to include billions of our tax dollars for their salaries and to steal or condemn our land. Tell the legislators not to alter the bill.
Once out of private hands, Florida land is off the tax rolls. Every time that happens, your taxes will go up until eventually your taxes will be too high and you will be forced to vacate your land. Your community will lose land and a tax base without your approval.
This has nothing to do with conservation, it has to do with money power and control. Don’t be Fooled. Isn’t it time that unelected people STOP telling you what to do with your property?
YOUR ACTION STEPS
First, everyone, please send an email to Committee Chairman, Senator Charlie Dean and thank him for putting the bill on the agenda.
Second, if your personal Senator is on the Committee, please send an email and call their Tallahassee office to say something to the effect:
“I am aware SB 584 sponsored by Senator Hays has been placed on the agenda of the Committee of Environmental Protection and Conservation. I am a constituent and am asking the Senator to vote favorably on this bill. This bill is a good government bill because it requires:
One, needed information for decision making before additional purchases are agreed to,
Two, good stewardship of current government owned conservation land, and
Three, fiscally responsible use of tax-payer dollars.
I respectfully request you vote favorably for the SB 584.
PS – After consultation with various special interest groups, Senator Hays will introduce an amended version of this bill which will put it in a better position to be advanced.
Here are the email addresses of the Committee membership:

“Funded primarily with U.S. tax dollars, the famously corrupt United Nations has hit a new low, awarding a genocidal warlord indicted by an international court for crimes against humanity a seat on its laughable human rights council.
The worst part is that this madness is funded by Americans to the tune of 7-plus billion dollars a year. The American cash keeps pouring in even though the U.N. is pillar of corruption, fraud and mismanagement. Its so-called human rights council is a huge joke with members that are famous for oppressing their citizens and, in many cases, committing atrocious human rights violations. Cuba, Iran and Venezuela are among the offenders.”
“Within the 2500 pages of the comically-named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is cached the 2014 establishment of the Independent Payment Advisory Board. Nominated exclusively by the president, the 15 members of the Board will ostensibly be tasked with “…prevent[ing] per-enrollee Medicare spending from growing faster than a specified target rate.”
How is all of this possible? According to the Cato Institute, “…by carving out a discrete list of limitations on the Board’s delegated powers, the [Affordable Care] Act implicitly gives IPAB otherwise unlimited power to exercise any enumerated congressional power with respect to any governmental body, industry, property, product, person, service or activity.” And just like Congress, the IPAB has been given the authority to appropriate federal funds and impose conditions for their receipt. This means “the Board could propose…to require states to implement federal laws or to enact new state laws in order to receive federal funding.”
Incredibly, Congress does not have the authority to do away with the IPAB until 2017, when a 3/5 vote by both Houses must accompany the signature of the President! Clearly, Barack Obama and the radically leftist, 2008 congress went to extraordinary lengths to shelter their conspiratorial overthrow of our constitutional Republic from standard methods of repeal.”

Thomas Sowell articulates the very real dangers that we now face and must overcome if our country is to survive as our Founding Fathers intended-one of individual liberty FOR ALL.
“A society that cannot or will not focus on matters of life and death is a society whose survival as a free nation is at least questionable. Hard as it may be to conceive how the kind of world that one has been used to, and taken for granted, can come to an end, it can happen in the lifetime of today’s generation.”

Plan to be part of this very informative phone conference presented by the the International Society for Individual Liberty’s (ISIL). Agenda 21 is a global plan to control the citizens of the United States through the intimidation of “green” initiatives. By exploiting the fear factor from “climate change” the United Nations plans to ultimately diminish the economic and political power of the United States thereby allowing other countries to dictate our national policies. It is imperative that citizens inform themselves about Agenda 21.
“Agenda 21 is the UN plan for total government control of your car, home, food, and just about every other aspect of your life – all in the name of “sustainability” and “smart growth.” The ultimate goal is to eliminate virtually all private cars and single family homes . . . concentrate people in high-density housing with no privacy and total control . . . and “re-wild” much of the civilized world by moving people out and moving predators in.
If that sounds like a socialist fantasy, think again. Agenda 21 has been endorsed to leaders throughout the world, including former Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton, and it is being implemented now in cities and towns throughout the world. In the U.S., cabinet level secretaries are dedicated to implementing Agenda 21 . . . 1,200 cities have signed on (City of Gainesville AND Alachua County included) . . . “smart growth” is being taught in most U.S. schools and colleges . . . and redevelopment agencies are transferring tax monies from road and suburban improvement to mandated high-density housing. A long-list of NGOs and private consulting organizations – including ICLEI (the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives) — are racking in tax money helping communities implement this agenda.”

If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. – Winston Churchill
