Hi again G, You speak many truths. We have only to look at how American Indians were treated relevant to "land grabs" to see how long this type of scenario has been playing out...also, how their "natural" remedies via herbs and such were discouraged and done away with so as future medical and big pharma could have profit margins that are outta sight. They make a killing while killing many of us with their poisons.
These land grabs.....they are "killing" the land as well with their strip mines/uranium mining, fracking chemicals, recent okaying the use of Agent Orange on our lands here/now. Land grabs such as this Bundy situation...the tip of the iceberg...land needed for a solar project now, they say? I recently lived in/around Wyoming/Dakotas/Montana areas...a lot of the land looks like a b*mbed out, burned out, distressed mess...not the flourishing flora and fauna I expected. The uranium mining around the sacred Black Hills and beyond....a mess and a hazard. The powerful winds there carry it all. This Bundy land grab, I'm thinking is more about what "they" want and less about supposed wrong doing by that family. Here in Louisiana, we have what is called, Homestead Exemption, where we don't get taxed by state if land value is under $75,000. I wonder how long before that changes here and land grabs start here as this state has a robust fracking industry going on and they want land....as much as they can get. Will see. I like what you have to say.
10 million acre land grab from Montana to New Mexico....
