Quote of the day:
Hillary Clinton: “Service is the rent we pay for living in this great country.”
There is a very old English word for people who are required to perform service as a rent for their existence, and that word is serf. Serfdom is a form of bondage. Americans are not serfs. We are not sharecroppers on Herself’s farm or in vassalage to that smear of thieving nincompoopery in Washington that purports to rule us. We don’t owe you any damned rent. – Kevin D. Williamson

RESOLUTION OF THE PEOPLE OF HARNEY COUNTY
ON THE STATUS OF HARNEY COUNTY LANDS
MANAGED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
Whereas; Harney County is a rural county within the State of Oregon within which about 73% (4,800,000 out of
6,500,000 acres) is managed by the Federal Government. And;
Whereas ; Harney County is blessed with an abundance of grazing and forest lands which are capable of providing
valuable resources to its people, County and State government. And;
Whereas; Harney County at one time was one of the wealthiest per capita Counties in Oregon when its resources
were being developed and used to their sustainable capacity. And;
Whereas; Harney County is now near the bottom of per capita income in Oregon due to the diminished use of its
natural resources and mismanagement of its public lands. And;
Whereas; The Federal Government and the State of Oregon have failed to manage these public lands in the County
in a manner that is protective and beneficial to the residents of Harney County. And;
Whereas; The people of Harney County, due to the County’s rural and natural resource land character, are unable to
sustain an economic base within the county that will provide its residents and families with ongoing sources of jobs
and services without the sustained contribution to its economy from those endemic natural resources. And;
Whereas; The Federal agencies are constrained and at the mercy of small but vocal groups of radical
environmentalists who use the myriad of laws regulating Federally managed lands, which creates for them
impenetrable obstacles to the development and sustained use of the resources within the County. And;
Whereas; The ownership/control of those lands within the sovereign State of Oregon are held in a defacto manner by
the Federal government, which holding is in violation of the Constitution of the United States, (US Constitution,
Article 1, Section 8, clause 17) as well as being to the detriment of the best interest of the State of Oregon and the
County of Harney residents. And;
Whereas; Within the County of Harney resides the personnel, talent and skilled workforce to locally better manage
those public lands and develop and market those public land resources in order to better sustain the local and State
economies while providing a healthier, safer environment on those public lands now under Federal management.
Whereas; Because The County Sheriff, duly elected by the people, is the rightful premier law enforcement officer in
Harney County and the first and last line of protection from abuses both from private and public offenders of our
laws and Constitution, and said Constitution is the premier law of the land. And;
Whereas; The local management of public land within Harney County will create a simpler, more efficient, more
manageable, more productive and more functional use of those lands. Therefore;
Be it Resolved; We the undersigned residents of Harney County do hereby support the development of a plan to
provide the expedient, systematic and harmonious transfer of all currently managed Federal lands within Harney
County to the jurisdiction of the people of Harney County.

Donald J. Trump on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms
The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.
The Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that belongs to all law-abiding Americans. The Constitution doesn’t create that right – it ensures that the government can’t take it away. Our Founding Fathers knew, and our Supreme Court has upheld, that the Second Amendment’s purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our families. This is about self-defense, plain and simple.
It’s been said that the Second Amendment is America’s first freedom. That’s because the Right to Keep and Bear Arms protects all our other rights. We are the only country in the world that has a Second Amendment. Protecting that freedom is imperative. Here’s how we will do that:
Enforce The Laws On The Books
We need to get serious about prosecuting violent criminals. The Obama administration’s record on that is abysmal. Violent crime in cities like Baltimore, Chicago and many others is out of control. Drug dealers and gang members are given a slap on the wrist and turned loose on the street. This needs to stop.
Several years ago there was a tremendous program in Richmond, Virginia called Project Exile. It said that if a violent felon uses a gun to commit a crime, you will be prosecuted in federal court and go to prison for five years – no parole or early release. Obama’s former Attorney General, Eric Holder, called that a “cookie cutter” program. That’s ridiculous. I call that program a success. Murders committed with guns in Richmond decreased by over 60% when Project Exile was in place – in the first two years of the program alone, 350 armed felons were taken off the street.
Why does that matter to law-abiding gun owners? Because they’re the ones who anti-gun politicians and the media blame when criminals misuse guns. We need to bring back and expand programs like Project Exile and get gang members and drug dealers off the street. When we do, crime will go down and our cities and communities will be safer places to live.
Here’s another important way to fight crime – empower law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves. Law enforcement is great, they do a tremendous job, but they can’t be everywhere all of the time. Our personal protection is ultimately up to us. That’s why I’m a gun owner, that’s why I have a concealed carry permit, and that’s why tens of millions of Americans have concealed carry permits as well. It’s just common sense. To make America great again, we’re going to go after criminals and put the law back on the side of the law-abiding.
Fix Our Broken Mental Health System
Let’s be clear about this. Our mental health system is broken. It needs to be fixed. Too many politicians have ignored this problem for too long.
All of the tragic mass murders that occurred in the past several years have something in common – there were red flags that were ignored. We can’t allow that to continue. We need to expand treatment programs, because most people with mental health problems aren’t violent, they just need help. But for those who are violent, a danger to themselves or others, we need to get them off the street before they can terrorize our communities. This is just common sense.
And why does this matter to law-abiding gun owners? Once again, because they get blamed by anti-gun politicians, gun control groups and the media for the acts of deranged madmen. When one of these tragedies occurs, we can count on two things: one, that opponents of gun rights will immediately exploit it to push their political agenda; and two, that none of their so-called “solutions” would have prevented the tragedy in the first place. They’ve even admitted it.
We need real solutions to address real problems. Not grandstanding or political agendas.
Defend The Rights of Law-Abiding Gun Owners
GUN AND MAGAZINE BANS. Gun and magazine bans are a total failure. That’s been proven every time it’s been tried. Opponents of gun rights try to come up with scary sounding phrases like “assault weapons”, “military-style weapons” and “high capacity magazines” to confuse people. What they’re really talking about are popular semi-automatic rifles and standard magazines that are owned by tens of millions of Americans. Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own.
BACKGROUND CHECKS. There has been a national background check system in place since 1998. Every time a person buys a gun from a federally licensed gun dealer – which is the overwhelming majority of all gun purchases – they go through a federal background check. Study after study has shown that very few criminals are stupid enough to try and pass a background check – they get their guns from friends/family members or by stealing them. So the overwhelming majority of people who go through background checks are law-abiding gun owners. When the system was created, gun owners were promised that it would be instant, accurate and fair. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case today. Too many states are failing to put criminal and mental health records into the system – and it should go without saying that a system’s only going to be as effective as the records that are put into it. What we need to do is fix the system we have and make it work as intended. What we don’t need to do is expand a broken system.
NATIONAL RIGHT TO CARRY. The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.
MILITARY BASES AND RECRUITING CENTERS. Banning our military from carrying firearms on bases and at recruiting centers is ridiculous. We train our military how to safely and responsibly use firearms, but our current policies leave them defenseless. To make America great again, we need a strong military. To have a strong military, we need to allow them to defend themselves.
The Democrats are destroying America…and the establishment Republicans are not stopping them. Now is the time for reform! We need someone from outside Washington DC to take a wrecking ball to the federal government and to begin to undo the horrendous damage of the Obama years. We are losing our religious liberty and our right to free speech (1st amendment) and the right to keep and bear arms is under constant attack (2nd amendment). Down with liberal media bias, political correctness and big government tyranny. Up with Judeo-Christian values, freedom and liberty!

Fills me with hope when I see the younger generation that “gets it”. Betcha he’s home schooled too.
This is one of the saddest polls I have ever seen. It means people are responding to who says it rather than what is being said.
