"I'm going to get your land, old man."

I'd heard this statement from several folks out in Washington County, but somehow it slipped my mind in all the recent developments. It's worth remembering.

This is the same agency whose field representative poked one of our farmers in the chest and said, "I am going to get your land, old man, whether you like it or not.”

This is how the United States Navy negotiates with North Carolina farmers. This is why we fight.

(This is your open thread.)

*Today* is the day to remind me of this....

I hope you all will join us either tonight or tomorrow night--or both! If you need more info on the public hearings, please visit www.noolf.com

I've retold this story several times

It gives me the heebie jeebies every time I do. It's just a load of crap.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

This is the type of action that our State Senators condone

by their lack of action. So just consider that pointing and jabbing finger also extending from the hand of both Burr and Dole!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.
