    After the year 1066
    Under the Norman kings (after 1066), BY ROYAL PREROGATIVE FOREST LAW was widely applied.[4] The law was designed to protect the venison and the vert, the “noble” animals of the chase – notably red and fallow deer, the roe, and the wild boar – and the greenery that sustained them.
    FORESTS WERE DESIGNED AS HUNTING AREAS RESERVED FOR THE MONARCH OR (BY INVITATION) the aristocracy

    (see medieval hunting). The concept was introduced by the Normans to England in the 11th century, and at the height of this practice in the late 12th and early 13th centuries,

    fully one-third of the land area of southern England was designated as royal forest
    ——————————————————————-
    Someone even questioned “By Hook or By Crook” here is the CONNECTIVITY.
    It was legal for people to take branches for fire wood from COMMON LAND. BUT only by using two tools, their hook and crook.
    it comes from the customs regulating which firewood local people could take from common land; they were allowed to take any branches that they could reach with a billhook or a shepherd’s crook.

    When the peasants ran out of legal fire wood and were FREEZING TO DEATH they took firewood by any and every way possible.

    THE PEASANTS BECAME THE CROOKS, chopping down trees and started stealing firewood from not only from common land, but from the preserved ROYAL land.

    The wild game went to the only forests left, the Royal forests…

    The peasants became poachers of royal game. POACHING has traditionally been defined as the illegal hunting, killing or capturing of wild animals, usually associated with land use rights.[1][2][3][4][5]

    Check the history of the IRS.

    The US Government shut down the IRS FOR ONE YEAR,

    increased the IRS STAFF TEN FOLD.

    There was a YEAR of NO income tax.

    The IRS was so swamped by the number of people that they could TAX, that they did not proceed and have an income tax that year.

    The US government, IRS knew WHEN they had bit off more than they could CHEW.

    There is an Obamacare DIRECT parallel and a point.

    So swamped by the number of people that they SHALL TAX ?

    The US government, IRS knew WHEN they had bit off more than they could CHEW?.

    Delay Obamacare for a year?

    Give the government some time to create a health care program that treats all Americans equally?

    And, INDEED, give the IRS a year to increase their STAFF TEN FOLD?

    Comment The Bottom line on
    RIGMAROLE It seems the terms ragman and ragman roll passed into the language as a description of a long and rambling discourse, no doubt from the disconnected nature of documents like the rolls of ALLEGIANCE.

    It later seems to have fallen out of use; it reappeared in the eighteenth century in various spellings, such as riggmon-rowle, but it eventually settled down as rigmarole, in the process losing any clear connection with the older term. ———————————————————————————– RIGMAROLE by current definition HAS a clear connection with the older term OBAMACARE is a ridiculously complicated process OBAMACARE is an irritating, tedious, or confusing sequence of tasks OBAMACARE has a tediously long, complicated, or unhelpful explanation OBAMACARE Especially tasks that seem unnecessary or absurd OBAMACARE has waivers EACH WITH A STRING ATTACHED OBAMACARE has a character called RAGEMAN ————————————————————————————- RIGMAROLE Pronounced /ˈrɪgmərəʊl/ IT NOW MEANS SOME LENGTHY AND COMPLICATED PROCEDURE but an older sense WAS OF A COMPLICATED AND INCOHERENT SET OF STATEMENTS OR A WANDERING DISCOURSE — I shall try to avoid any such tedious tale, but the history of this word is more than a little odd and takes some recounting. In medieval times, THERE WAS A GAME CALLED RAGMAN, WHICH SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN LIKE CONSEQUENCES BUT WITH PREDEFINED STATEMENTS. It used a rolled-up scroll CONTAINING DESCRIPTIONS OF CHARACTERS, EACH WITH A STRING ATTACHED PLAYERS SELECTED A STRING AT RANDOM the scroll was then unrolled and THE ASSOCIATED PASSAGE READ OUT to the hilarity of all present (these were simpler times). There are also some suspicions that the same system was used for a gambling game. The origin of the name for the game is obscure: the oldest form was rageman, said as three syllables, and this suggests it may have been French in origin — A CHARACTER CALLED RAGEMAN the good appeared in some french verses of about 1290. others think it might have come from RAG IN THE SENSE OF TATTERS, USED AS A NAME FOR A DEVIL (AS IN RAGAMUFFIN, ORIGINALLY A DEMON). The name was transferred to various ENGLISH STATUTES at the end of the thirteenth century, which were written on scrolls. With the seals and ribbons of their signers sticking out, These reminded people of the scroll used in the game. The most famous such document was the one in 1291 in which the Scottish nobility and gentry subscribed ALLEGIANCE to Edward I before John Balliol took the Scots throne. The Bottom line on RIGMAROLE It seems the terms ragman and ragman roll passed into the language as a description of a long and rambling discourse, no doubt from the disconnected nature of documents like the rolls of ALLEGIANCE. It later seems to have fallen out of use; it reappeared in the eighteenth century in various spellings, such as riggmon-rowle, but it eventually settled down as rigmarole, in the process losing any clear connection with the older term.

    The Washington state Supreme Court ruled 6-3 today that Ecology in 2006 exceeded its authority in setting aside water reservations for new uses in the Skagit. The 2006 rule amended a 2001 water management rule that protected stream flows basin-wide.

    A reservation is a specific amount of water set aside for specific uses in watersheds closed to new groundwater wells. In the case of the Skagit, these reservations have provided a source of water for homes, agriculture, livestock and businesses since 2001. The court today ruled in Swinomish Indian Tribal Community v. Department of Ecology

    THAT Ecology cannot set aside reservations of water through adoption of water management rules where water was previously set aside to support stream flows for fish.

    Without water reservations, later water uses can be interrupted when dry spells impact the protected stream flows. Ecology found in 2006 that limited reservations would not substantially harm fish populations. The Swinomish Tribe challenged the establishment of the reservations in 2008 and appealed a Thurston County Superior Court finding in Ecology’s favor in 2010.

    “I am disappointed in today’s ruling but no less committed to finding water supply solutions for homes and businesses,” Bellon said. “We will be working with local partners to manage the water supply in the Skagit Basin to ensure stream flows are protected and the needs of existing and future water users are met.”

    A total of 475 homes and 8 businesses have relied on Skagit reservations for their water supplies since 2001. Ecology will be looking for water supply solutions for those homes and businesses who are affected by today’s ruling.

    Ecology is assessing today’s decision and how it may affect water management in other areas of the state.

  • The DOE Water Mess

    From: Attorney at Law & Government Affairs Bill Clarke
    In short, this is a real mess for Skagit County.
    Sent: Thursday, October 03, 2013 10:47 AM

    Attached is the Supreme Court’s opinion in the Swinomish v. Ecology case. In this case, Ecology amended the 2001 Skagit Instream Flow Rule in 2006 to create specific reservations of water for exempt-well based development in rural parts of Skagit County. Within this 2006, the original 2001 had no water available for development anywhere in Skagit County that was not served by a public water system. To do so, Ecology relied on its authority under RCW 90.54 to make appropriations of water that conflict with instream flows if such water uses served “overriding considerations of public interest.”

    The Supreme Court ruled that Ecology’s use of its “OCPI” authority was too broad, and thus invalidated the 2006 rule. As usual, the decision has pages of discussion that will be fodder for future water rights issue to come, but the immediate question is how this decision impacts all the homes that were built since 2001 in reliance on the water provided in the 2006 rule amendment. In short, this is a real mess for Skagit County.

    More to come.

  • The Obamacare Rigmarole

    The Bottom line on RIGMAROLE
    It seems the terms ragman and ragman roll passed into the language as a description of a long and rambling discourse, NO DOUBT FROM THE DISCONNECTED NATURE OF DOCUMENTS like the rolls of ALLEGIANCE.

    It later seems to have fallen out of use; it reappeared in the eighteenth century in various spellings, such as riggmon-rowle, but it eventually settled down as rigmarole, in the process losing any clear connection with the older term.
    ———————————————————————————–
    The Obamacare RIGMAROLE, by currant definition HAS a clear connection with the older term

    OBAMACARE is a ridiculously complicated process

    OBAMACARE is an irritating, tedious, or confusing sequence of tasks

    OBAMACARE has a tediously long, complicated, or unhelpful explanation

    OBAMACARE Especially tasks that seem unnecessary or absurd

    OBAMACARE has waivers EACH WITH A STRING ATTACHED

    OBAMACARE has a character called RAGEMAN
    ————————————————————————————-
    RIGMAROLE
    Pronounced /ˈrɪgmərəʊl/

    IT NOW MEANS SOME LENGTHY AND COMPLICATED PROCEDURE but an older sense WAS OF A COMPLICATED AND INCOHERENT SET OF STATEMENTS OR A WANDERING DISCOURSE — I shall try to avoid any such tedious tale, but the history of this word is more than a little odd and takes some recounting.

    In medieval times, THERE WAS A GAME CALLED RAGMAN, WHICH SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN LIKE CONSEQUENCES BUT WITH PREDEFINED STATEMENTS.
    It used a rolled-up scroll CONTAINING DESCRIPTIONS OF CHARACTERS,

    EACH WITH A STRING ATTACHED

    PLAYERS SELECTED A STRING AT RANDOM

    the scroll was then unrolled and THE ASSOCIATED PASSAGE READ OUT

    to the hilarity of all present (these were simpler times). There are also some suspicions that the same system was used for a gambling game.

    The origin of the name for the game is obscure: the oldest form was rageman, said as three syllables, and this suggests it may have been French in origin —

    A CHARACTER CALLED RAGEMAN

    the good appeared in some french verses of about 1290. others think it might have

    come from RAG IN THE SENSE OF TATTERS,
    USED AS A NAME FOR A DEVIL (AS IN RAGAMUFFIN, ORIGINALLY A DEMON).

    The name was transferred to various ENGLISH STATUTES at the end of the thirteenth century, which were written on scrolls. With the seals and ribbons of their signers sticking out,

    These reminded people of the scroll used in the game. The most famous such document was the one in 1291 in which the Scottish nobility and gentry subscribed ALLEGIANCE to Edward I before John Balliol took the Scots throne.
