Rosa didn't resist the cops when they arrived, but she made her point.
e.g., you own a house
an assessor comes and looks your dive over
in the tax year, you receive a tax bill or invoice based on what the county assessor wrote down as your assessed value
A. pay the tax bill
B. you ignore it
C. visit the county seat and ask that your property be re-assessed because you believe the assessment to too high
So we're going to start arresting everyone who doesn't pay taxes, fines or rent? Cool. Someone let me know when Charlie Rangel is arrested.
So Jerry is not your screen name? As for me "being a jerk", I think you read too much into words on a political message board...
See, having served in the military I am well aware of the difference between my service, and those like you that have gone into combat, and I thank my lucky stars that I was lucky enough to serve in a time of relative peace, and I do appreciate those like you that went into danger. I don't say that like others that use it as a throw away to open a sentence, or make themselves feel better, but as someone who served in the military as well and if not in combat knows, and was trained just the same. So your denigration of my service is disappointing....The rage you display, and the vitriol you spew toward me when it is likely we agree about more than disagree is sad, and displays a general disrespect for anyone you feel is the slightest refusing to kiss your ass like some kind of bully.
Whether or not you hold contempt or disdain for those who didn't wear your patch, or see your reality is really of no concern when there is freedom of association, and freedom to assemble. You of ALL people should realize that. But I get it, your just mad at the world....
You know, when I went in, I did it because I lived in Lansing MI, in a time coming out of the great Jimmah Carter depression, and didn't know a single person to get a good job so, with little prospects, and young, and all, I joined up and got out of that place...As a broke young guy, I got to be trained, see places, and most importantly, learn that there was something out there bigger than myself...A good lesson that many too often don't learn....Have you learned that Jerry?
Look, You don't know me, you only think you do. So, you shouldn't read into written words on some board as more than they are...And save the meltdowns for something that matters.
Cases just like the Bundy’s can be seen all throughout the country. At the Henderson Ranch near the border between Texas and Oklahoma, the BLM took 140 acres of legitimately homesteaded property from the Henderson family. Additionally, the BLM seeks to use his case as precedent to seize land along a 116-mile stretch of the Red River, which separates Texas from Oklahoma.
“They’re wanting to take the boundaries that the courts placed here and extend those east and west to the forks of the river north of Vernon and east to the 98th Meridian which is about 20 miles east of us,” Tommy Henderson told RFDTV.
“How can BLM come in and say, “Hey, this isn’t yours.” Even though it’s patented from the state, you’ve always paid taxes on it. Our family has paid taxes for over 100 years on this place. We’ve got a deed to it. But yet they walked in and said it wasn’t ours,” he added.
If the BLM gets their way, the government could seize 90,000 acres of property that is currently in use along the Red River.
“Originally, here the river was out there where it is now and it eroded and accreted up to here, and then it eroded and accreted back. Well, their interpretation is that it eroded up to here but avulsed back. So when you listen to them it is always erosion to the south because the property line follows it then, but it’s always avulsion when it goes north. So the boundary can move south but it can never move back north,” Henderson said.
Scott Carpenter, one of Henderson’s neighbors is in a similar position, and wants to help in the fight against the BLM. His land is also under threat from the constant changing of borders along the river.
“We have numerous places that have been in our family for over a hundred of years, and you hate to see land that people’s worked hard for would lose. As producers we are always on a defense. We have to make decisions to try to help ourselves to help one another” Carpenter said.
BLM threatens Henderson Ranch in Texas for massive land grab | Intellihub NewsSo sleep tight tonight Ditto, because according to your line of thinking you are just fine with land you own being taken out from under you at the drop of a hat....Ain't that great.???At issue are thousands of acres of land on the Texas side of the Red River, along the border between Texas and Oklahoma. Officials recently have raised concern that the BLM might be looking at claiming 90,000 acres of land as part of the public domain.
The agency, though, argues that any land in question was long ago determined to be public property.
“The BLM is categorically not expanding Federal holdings along the Red River,” a BLM spokeswoman said in a written statement late Tuesday afternoon.
The spokeswoman referred to a 140-acre plot “determined to be public land in 1986” – an apparent reference to a 1986 federal court case. Breitbart.com, which reported Monday on the Texas land dispute, reported that a Texas landowner lost 140 acres to BLM in that case, and the agency is now using that decision as precedent to pursue more property.
Tommy Henderson, the rancher involved in that case, told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren on "On the Record" Tuesday that the BLM was "talking about taking another 90,000 acres by using my court case as the precedent to seize the other land...
"They won't talk to us or be straight with us as to what their plans are," Henderson said. "...So I have continued to pay for this land or the federal government would seize everything else I had."
According to background materials put out by Texas Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry’s office, the BLM is revisiting its management plan for lands including those along a 116-mile stretch of the Red River. His office said the possibility has been discussed of opening that land up for “hunting, recreation and management."
Gene Hall of the Texas Farm Bureau told Van Susteren, "we have seen an aggressive overreach by the federal government and in more than one instance, if you have got an agency like this that's very well funded with a lot of people involved, then you shouldn't be surprised if they are going to overreach and extend that aggressive approach."
Abbott, in his letter to the agency, said “it is not at all clear what legal basis supports the BLM’s claim of federal ownership over private property.” He said private landowners have cultivated the property “for generations.”
The debate comes on the heels of a tense standoff earlier this month in Nevada, after BLM tried to round up cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy – the product of a long-running dispute over unpaid grazing fees. Hundreds of states’ rights supporters, some of them armed, showed up to protest, and BLM back off citing safety concerns.
In the Texas matter, the Supreme Court incorporated the Red River as part of the border with Oklahoma nearly a century ago.
Congress further clarified the boundaries of the two states in 2000.
It’s unclear how seriously BLM might be looking at laying claim to additional boundary land.
BLM said it is merely in the “initial stages of developing options for management of public lands,” as part of a “transparent process with several opportunities for public input.”
