Where There’s a Will there’s a Way.
Where There’s a Won’t They Don’t
In a reelection campaign speech, our Clallam County Commissioner Mike Chapman said “If we don’t want you to do it, we will make it as difficult as possible”
Go figure… With this attitude against what our local citizens want, Mike Chapman was reelected.
WHAT CITIZENS WANT AND WHAT WE’VE GOT….
WITH “THEY” BEING DEFINED AS THE ELECTED FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, THEY WILL FIND A WAY TO TAKE OUR WORKING TAXPAYERS MONEY. BY TAXING, TOLLING, FEES, PERMITTING, FOR ENTRANCE…
THEY WON’T AND DON’T BOTHER WITH FINDING A WAY FOR WORKING AMERICAN CITIZENS TO PUT FOOD ON THEIR OWN TABLE AFTER FEDERAL DEDUCTIONS. (LIKE SUBSIDIZING OBAMACARE)
THEY ARE MUCH TOO BUSY DIVING UP TAXPAYERS MONEY TO GIVE FREE ENTITLEMENTS TO ILLEGALS AND IMMIGRANTS, ETC.
THEY WILL FIND A WAY TO TAKE OUR PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LAND.
THEY WILL FIND A WAY BY ACTS, LEGISLATION, REGULATION, RESTRICTION, RULES, TO TAKE OUR PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LAND USE AWAY FROM WE THE PEOPLE.
THEY WILL FIND A WAY BY ACTS, LEGISLATION, REGULATION, RESTRICTION, RULES, TO TAKE OUR PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LAND USE AWAY FROM WE THE PEOPLE. (IN FACT, ALL LAND USE, GRAZING, RECREATIONAL AND EVEN BUILDING A HOME ,)

Group: Fix the national parks we have, don’t create new ones

PNP comment: I don’t know who is behind this group, but this certainly sounds like a good idea. — Editor Liz Bowen
A group behind “free market environmentalism” said the nation’s nearly $12 billion backlog of deferred maintenance at national parks could be in part solved by taking care of the ones that already exist, instead of spending money on new ones.

SALT LAKE CITY — A new report issued by a group promoting “free market environmentalism” said the national park system will observe its 100th anniversary this year with a nearly $12 billion backlog of needed maintenance — something it says seven key strategies would help reduce.
• A leaky wastewater system dumped raw sewage into the streams in Yosemite.
• Frequent ruptures in an 83-year-old pipeline system at the Grand Canyon causes water shortages and facility closures.
• And nearly half the roads in national parks are in fair or poor condition.
The Property and Environmental Research Center founded 35 years ago in Bozeman, Montana, issued “Breaking the Backlog,” detailing deferred maintenance projects that are five times higher than the National Park Service’s budget.
Over the past 10 years, Congress has funded 4 percent of the agency’s total backlog, while discretionary spending to address the problem has decreased 40 percent.
The group founded on property rights principles and markets said it is unrealistic to expect Congress to fix existing problems at national parks like roads, campgrounds, wastewater treatment systems or failing bridges because conserving new land has broader appeal and more political punch.
The federal government, however, should stop acquiring land for national parks and instead prioritize taking care of the land it already has, the group says.
“By focusing on land acquisition, limited conservation dollars are spent at the expense of properly maintaining existing lands,” the report notes. “Moreover, adding more public lands can exacerbate the problem because the federal government incurs even more liabilities, often with little or no means of maintaining the additional lands.”
The group recommends reforming the (LWCF) Land and Water Conservation Fund
— which it said has allocated $100 million to acquire 100,000 acres from 2011-2014 — and instead dedicate the federal dollars to maintenance at existing parks.
That idea is likely to draw cries of protest.
Multiple key environmental organizations across the country consider the fund’s ability to facilitate the federal government’s acquisition of more public lands sacrosanct, skewering Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, when he proposed reforms last year.
Paul Wilkins, chief conservation officer for the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, a coalition of sportsmen’s organizations, said there is no need to come up with new strategies to address the maintenance backlog at national parks.

BY HOOK OR BY CROOK, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, “IF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DOESN’T WANT YOU TO DO IT, THEY WILL MAKE IT AS DIFFICULT AS “IMPOSSIBLE”
This is a long standing systemic violation of an American constitutional government, FROM THE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LEVEL.
LET’S START HERE…
FOLLOW THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS MONEY?
As our elected government representatives, Congress acts, Congress votes, and Congress funds Congress passes the buck, our taxpayers money, through one appointed federal agency to another appointed agency, to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) a Federal program, to the (DOI) to a military contractor, to the (EPA) to (NOAA) ETAL. using a bit of nepotism here and a bit, political cronyism there, a bit of insider trading, real estate contracts, etc….
SHALL I GO ON?
CONGRESS JUSTIFIES THE COMPROMISED SPENDING OF TAXPAYERS MONEY?
AFTER OUR ELECTED CONGRESS HAS ACTED, ENACTED, PASSED THE LAWS, ENABLED AND EMPOWERED APPOINTED FEDERAL AGENCIES?
OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE SAY..
WELL, GOLLY GOSH AND GEE WHIZ… THE SPENDING OF TAXPAYER MONEY IS OUT OF OUR HANDS. THE REGULATION OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LAND… WE HAVE WATERS OF THE UNITED STATES (WOTUS)… THE TRIBES HAVE THEIR TREATY RIGHTS….
OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE SAY..
OUR HANDS ARE TIED? WE HAVE FEDERAL LAWS.. THE (EPA) THE CLEAN WATER ACT, THE CLEAN AIR ACT, THE (DOI) USE OF PUBLIC LAND, INCLUDING THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE, THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT (ESA) THE WILD, WILDERNESS, SCENIC WILD RIVERS ACT, SCENIC HI WAYS AND BYWAYS, (NOAA) etal.
INDEED, OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE HAVE TO FOLLOW THE LAWS THAT THEY COLLECTIVELY ENACTED..
SHALL I GO ON?
THE TAXPAYERS MONEY IS OUT OF CONGRESS’S HANDS?
OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE ARE NO LONGER RESPONSIBLE OR ACCOUNTABLE TO THE AMERICAN CITIZENS THAT ELECTED THEM?
AFTER CONGRESS HAS APPROPRIATED, AND FUNDED THE APPOINTED SELF SERVING GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, THOSE AGENCIES ARE NOT ACCOUNTABLE OR RESPONSIBLE TO AMERICAN CITIZEN.
WHAT’S EVEN WORSE? HOW COULD IT BE ANY WORSE?
AS WE FOLLOW THE TAXPAYERS MONEY TRAIL?
OUR TAXPAYER MONEY IS ALL GONE,
WHERE OUR TAXPAYER MONEY HAS GONE TO, IT HAS BEEN DIVERSIFIED TO FUND AND THE GRANT THE GLOBAL AGENDA 21, SELF SERVING NON-GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATIONS (NGO) THAT HAVE ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY TO ANYONE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
DO TAXPAYERS HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THEIR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS?
WE THE PEOPLE ARE MAD AS HELL, FOR BEING “COMPROMISED AND DIVERSIFIED” OUT OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, AND, OUR TAXPAYERS MONEY, BY THE ACTS AND ACTIONS OF THE LEFT AND RIGHT WINGS OF OUR ELECTED GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES.
