If you are sensitive to profanity do not watch this one.
Update: July 2014.
The Oregon man, Mr Harrington who was charged and found guilty for collecting rainwater on his own property, started his prison sentence today. He has to serve 30 days in jail and pay a $1500 fine.
Here’s what he said.
“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and die and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies.”“We as Americans, we need to stand on our constitutional rights, on our rights as citizens and hang tough. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.
Update June 2014:
The State of Michigan just made it illegal for residents to grow their own food and keep their own livestock at home. If you live in Michigan where there are 13 other homes within an eight of a mile to your house you may not keep chickens, beehives, grow your own food or even a goat or two.
This is an all out war on self sufficiency. You’d think that the government would encourage it’s citizens to be more self sufficient like they do in Switzerland and other countries.
