A little over a month ago the City Manager’s Office determined that it was best for us to not renew our membership with ICLEI when that membership came due later this spring.
As of today, I have sent a letter notifying ICLEI that the City of College Station will not be renewing its membership nor taking part in its programs in 2012 and beyond. Furthermore, I asked that ICLEI immediately cancel our membership (if it is even still active), and remove the City of College Station and its officers from any and all ICLEI rosters, publications, and websites.

Here we go again. This continues to be another way the government is trying to control us and take away our rights. I am so sick of this BIG government trying to control our every move in their urge to create some perfect world they envision in their warped minds.
This country was founded on the basis of individual liberty and day by day our government is trying to take away that liberty. We need to wake up and start fighting against these absurd controls and regulations the government is forcing on us. We need to help get these laws changed. They work for us. We don’t work for them.
Check out this article from the Canadian Free Press:
The U.N. has deemed commercial agriculture unsustainable and has used taxpayer dollars and local supervisors to re-zone, re-shape, and prohibit land use for local agriculture or building that is not approved by their bio-diversity plan of limiting human habitation – all in the name of saving the planet.
Our planet does not need saving, Mother Earth is doing fine. The problem lies with progressive humans in positions of power who want to control everything we do while they line their pockets with our hard-earned taxpayer dollars.
Unfair regulatory actions against Martha Boneta, a farmer in Fauquier County, Virginia, “violate fundamental rights and unfairly restrict her property rights.” Delegate L. Scott Lingamfelter (R-Woodbridge/31st district) plans to strengthen Virginia’s Right to Farm Act and to “protect farmers against future encroachments by local government.”

Here is a detailed presentation on what is really in Agenda 21 and the sustainable development movement as defined by the UN. How it will ultimately compromise your property rights..
Regarding Ms. Bruntdland: Some have suggested she is merely a Democrat and I am way off base. First off, Norway does not have a Democratic Party, but rather Socialist democrats. Hopefully there is a difference. Internet research can be a challenge, so I respect those who engage in it! However, check out the XX Congress of the Socialist International in NY. Gro was the first VP of the Socialist International whose goal is to interact with labour, social democrats and socialists worldwide to spread the socialist concept of democracy. It is quite possible to be member of the Democratic Party and a Socialist at the same time. It is members like Gro whose desire it is to move the Democratic party more toward the Social Democratic Party.
I also want to thank “6or8pack” for pointing out my error in mentioning that Betty Perry’s nose was injured by handcuffs. In fact, she slipped during her interaction with officers and hit her nose on the steps. Betty was aware of local ordinances, but chose to ignore them. This landed her in the holding pen. This error is mine.
Some have suggested they have “read Agenda 21 ” and there is nothing dangerous in the book and besides, the document has no power to override their Constitutional right to own and control private property.
To read the book alone, without reading the preceeding and following documentation and activites would be somewhat like looking at a map of Brazil and feeling you now know how Brazilians think and feel.
The name A21 refers not only to the actual book, but to the entire sustainable development movement as defined by the United Nations dating back to the 1970′s through today. That is why it is important to not only listen to the entire video, but research on your own to gain more information. Since this presentation was completed vast new volumes of information have been compiled. Check the sources in the back of the presentation and the United Nation’s own websites to draw your own conclusions.
Thanks for viewing the video and for your observations. John

I can’t stress enough how important it is to get involved on a local level to stop Agenda 21. Please do your own research on this. You can go to sustainabledevelopment.un.org. This is one of the most dangerous things being implemented in our country now. Many local groups are getting involved in various states to try to stop Agenda 21 and ICLEI. Please read this article and then search for “Agenda 21″ and you will find a lot of information that will help you understand how dangerous this is. The UN has wiped many of their links to make it harder to do research, but I found a lot of information. I’ll be posting more of it on my blog here and my website, Agenda 21 For Your Consideration.
(This article is from The Economic Collapse Blog, December 23, 2012.)
Even if you have your mortgage completely paid off, that doesn’t mean that you really “own” your property. If you don’t pay your taxes and obey the “codes”, you could lose your property very rapidly.
The philosophy behind all of this is the same philosophy behind Agenda 21. The elite believe that you cannot be trusted to do the “right thing” with your own property and that your activity must be “managed” for the greater good. They believe that by controlling you and restricting your liberties that they are “saving the planet”.
Unfortunately, you can probably expect this to get a whole lot worse in the years ahead. Our society is shifting from one that cherishes individual liberties and freedoms to one that is fully embracing collectivism. So our politicians will likely be making even more of our decisions for us as the years move forward.
Steven Crowder’s Latest!!
He’s Back!!!!! I LOVE me some Steven Crowder!!
(This post originally written for My Colorado View.)
This is the first post I’ve ever made to this blog. I’ve met many of the other women who write here and I didn’t think I could write anything as well as they could. Well, I hope I’m wrong, because I just discovered My Colorado View. I didn’t expect it, but during a rally yesterday had an epiphany of sorts.
It all started when my son told me he had to play in the pep band for Michelle Obama’s speech at his high school yesterday. My first instinct was to tell him there was no way I was going to let him do that and then lock him in his room. I had known Michelle Obama was going to be speaking at his high school, but had blocked it out of my mind. We had to go to the school and move his instrument and music to a place where the secret service could check it. After I dropped him off, I posted about it on Facebook. Someone from the Arapahoe Tea Party commented that I should join the people holding signs the next day. I knew that AFP-Colorado was also going to be there. I decided that sounded like a great plan and I could kill two birds with one stone as it were.
Well, I dropped Brady off at the school just before 7:30 in the morning and the crowd was already starting to line up. I drove around the area a few times to see if any of the others had arrived yet, but they were running a bit late. I finally found some of the group and joined with them on one corner and started doing my part by holding one end of the banner, “Will Work for Gas”. It was as I was standing in my neighborhood, outside the excellent school that has taught my children, that I thought of what this neighborhood meant to me and what we should be doing to actually be heard.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved that we were there letting people know how we felt about what’s been going on in our country. I’ve been to other events and had a great time, but this time was different somehow. I couldn’t tell how at first, but then I realized what it was. We were missing our chance to really share our message in a meaningful way. This wasn’t just waving signs and calling out to cars. This was people, many of whom were walking by us to attend a visit by the first lady, someone who meant a great deal to the people attending. There were families with young children and they were dressed up for the obviously important event that they wanted to share with their children.
I was already feeling as though I didn’t have anything to offer to this group, so I just stood holding the banner and just watched the people. We had some people who were calling out to the crowd and I even called out once in a while. We all wanted our thoughts to be heard and for Michelle Obama to know how we felt. But, were we really speaking to Michelle Obama or the people arriving to hear her speak? Every time someone was walking by and we called out, we lost our chance to show our true selves and connect with these people.
I didn’t feel the epiphany coming. I guess that’s how epiphanies work. They just sort of sneak up on you and then burst into your mind like an answer to a question you didn’t know you were even asking. Mine started to really start moving when I saw a small African-American family walking toward the corner across the way so they could cross the street and continue to the school. I watched them and remembered when my husband and I moved here 16 years ago, to this exact neighborhood, with our two small sons. The neighborhood welcomed us and made us feel a part of it from the beginning. It’s where I learned to love Colorado and where our sons grew up to become Colorado natives. It had nurtured our small family through good times and bad. We have made lifelong friends here, attended church here and my kids have attended all their years of school here. Right in this beautiful neighborhood we were standing in. It suddenly made this rally much more personal to me.
I watched the young boy and girl in this family and saw their reactions when people in our group called out, “Hey Michelle…Shut up and eat your broccoli.” I started to have a strong feeling in my chest that this was making them uncomfortable. What if they had never been in an all white or mostly white neighborhood before? What if all they and their parents knew of us was the crazy stuff in the media that says we hate the president because he’s black? What if they thought we were yelling because they were black? I didn’t want them to feel uncomfortable or scared in my neighborhood. My kids had never felt uncomfortable or scared there and I was starting to feel strongly that we were handling our rally/protest the wrong way. This was our chance to make an impression on these people. To show them we’re not the way the media has portrayed us.
A bit later I saw two women driving by looking for the school. They looked at us and even though they saw our signs, they felt comfortable enough to try to ask us for directions. Just as I was trying to give them the directions, someone called out again about Michelle and I was unable to help them. I saw them after they had turned around and were waiting for a light to change. I let them know where the school was and places they could park if the school parking lots were all full.
That’s when I realized it. We had missed out. We were so busy trying to get our message to Michelle, we didn’t realize what our message to these guests in my neighborhood was. We needed to see them. We needed to understand their need to go and see a woman they greatly admired. I thought about how we could have done it better. The signs were great for getting the message to the passing cars and many people honked in support, but we lost every one of those people when we yelled something about Michelle.
I realized we need to be for something, not against something. Sometimes we let our passion and our anger about how we feel about President Obama and the changes he’s made to our country overshadow the message we’re really trying to get out there. I think when it’s a more personal situation, like a neighborhood, we need to change our approach. If we need to call out, it should be a list of things this president has done that we don’t approve of. Many of these people might not know some of these things. After all, they probably watch network news or channels like MSNBC. I think we could also have some fliers with these concerns to hand out as people walk by. They might just throw it away, or maybe they’ll give it a glance and see things they didn’t even know about. We still hold our signs, but we also make them feel welcome in our neighborhoods. Let them see we’re not the screaming maniacs the mainstream media has tried to convince them we are.
I think about today. Will any of those families feel as though they were welcome in my neighborhood? I don’t think they will. Neighborhoods aren’t the same as rallying downtown, or at some event. I want people who come to visit my neighborhood to feel as comfortable and safe as I’ve always felt here. We should all feel that way, otherwise we just help widen the divide between us. It’s our love and compassion that will change their minds, eventually.
I don’t know if I fit in at these rallies, but I’m not going to give up on my need to take part somehow. I’ve had fun before, but this time I learned more than ever before. Why can’t my feeling about my neighborhood extend to my feeling about my country. I’m attending Restoring Love in Dallas, TX in July because I know love will be what saves us in the end. Now, I’ve felt that love in my own Colorado neighborhood. I know there are more ways to reach out. Believe me, I can yell out our message as loud as anyone, and with just as much passion. I just think sometimes there’s a better way. I’m a mom. I stood there yesterday as a mom, wondering if any of those people would feel comfortable coming to my neighborhood again. I don’t think they would and that makes me sad.
That’s My Colorado View.
