Eagle Forum discussion on Property Rights; Extra Links and Topics Discussed

To follow up from discussion last night at the Eagle Forum Education Center:

We can do something about private property rights being diminished. The major way is to be prepared to help gather signatures for a future initiative petition drive led by Ron Calzone. Here is a link to his speech explaining the specifics in Missouri regarding our Constitution and property rights.

How does the Missouri Constitution protect you? Know your Missouri Bill of Rights!

Here are two links regarding Rombach Farms Pumpkin Patch and possible property rights abuse:
1. Here's the FOX article about the drainage ditch in Rombach Farms Pumpkin Patch
http://fox2now.com/2012/04/16/chesterfield-outlet-mall-plan-could-wipe-out-popular-farm/

2. discusses raising taxes to finance the outlets and competition with Chesterfield Mall

NOTE: I can't find the "Save the Rombach Pumpkin Patch" Facebook page. I'm wondering if the FOX story pushed the developers to find somewhere else to put in the ditch?

We lightened it up last night: Cartoon illustration with featuring Reagan and Obama that we all enjoyed last night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h8O7V-WxWQ

What is the role of government? Kimberly-Clark paper mill shuts down in Washington state.
"The federal government announced last week that it approved $1.79 million in emergency assistance for 570 Kimberly-Clark workers in Everett to help them find new jobs. At this point, it's unclear exactly how the money will be used, but local officials said the money will be put to good use."

This isn't about this post, but about the title of your blog. You should know, you spelled "breath" wrong.

Wow. This is great information!
I know of and have been to Rombach Farms several times with my girl, and it is a wonderful place to hang!
I will soak this all in and also check out the event on the 23rd.
I live in Jeff. Cty., yet this can happen anywhere!
There is so much to do.


Attending After P. tonight.

Let's give the scoundrels a taste of how the American Revolution has been revived!
