    What would be wrong with being a better Capitalist under our form of Capitalism. According to Hagar the Horrible, even being a Viking was better than farming.

    I've lost track of how many breitbart 'news' stories fall apart once the CON game is exposed. The fact is 100 years ago the 'land' Henderson claims is his wasn't there. Overtime the River has deposited silt and sand there with the course moving a bit north. He is just trying to gain land his folks never owned, an Okie was paying the taxes on that land long before Henderson ran a cow on it.

    From his 'hunter' story it sounds like he wants control over public land to keep everyone out.

    I am familiar with one case like this, where a property line was a river.
    The court ruled that the property line was where the river used to be,
    Just like a regular survey. The river movement did not change the ownership.

    I'd like an explanation of the science of this.

    I suspect there is a lot of case law between states about this.
    One only has to look at the border between Louisiana and Mississippi, near Vicksburg.
    https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&l...83026&t=h&z=10
    In some places parts of Mississippi stick almost 10 miles into Louisiana.
    So the border is where the river used to be, not where it is now.

    It's been all over the news here. Not uncommon for the channels you watch to ignore it.

    Ordinarily, a government can exercise eminent domain only if its taking will be for a "public use" - which may be expansively defined along the lines of public "safety, health, interest, or convenience". Perhaps the most common example of a "public use" is the taking of land to build or expand a public road or highway. Public use could also include the taking of land to build a school or municipal building, for a public park, or to redevelop a "blighted" property or neighborhood.


    They must also pay fair value which they did not in the case of the 140 ac. plot

    Does this agency have nothing better to do than ruin peoples lives?
    If the BLM seizes the land, claiming that is should never have been privately owned due to the boundary dispute, grazing of cattle could still be an option
    Factually incorrect. From your title headline;
