Ok I had never heard of this "agenda 21" thing until just a few minutes ago on C-span... strangely, I've been watching a LOT of C-span these days,
with all of the stuff going on in Congress (struggling to figure out what to do so the entire COUNTRY doesn't default on its loans), to the astronauts
coming back to Earth from the final space shuttle mission on Atlantis this past Thursday, and now to
, the director of the National Park service being interviewed live this morning.
During his interview, people were calling asking all kinds of questions - 2 of these phone calls involved men questioning about Agenda 21; the first
phone call resulted in the caller asking Jervis what he thought about Agenda 21, to which Jarvis replied he "was not aware of Agenda 21". This led to
interviewer saying something like "Ok, well if anyone out there knows what Agenda 21 is and would like to inform us about it, feel free to call
A few minutes later, another man calls in and quickly summarized what Agenda 21 is - basically stating that the United Nations owns all of our land
and plans to take over it. This resulted in Jervis saying something like "I've been working for the National Park Service for 35 years now, and have
never once heard the words "Agenda 21" cross anyone's lips."
You can watch a recording of the show here: (it's 3 hours long but there are 2 other segments before Jarvis is on)
2:33:29 man calls in and asks what Jarvis thinks about Agenda 21
2.50.21 man calls in from Missouri and explains what Agenda 21 is
Jarvis also talked a few minutes about Mexican drug cartels coming across the border up into the parks of Arizona after a woman called in (around
2:36) asking why the government has yet to do anything about it - something else I've never heard anything about and thought was interesting.
Also mentions the law has been changed so that any park goers can now carry weapons in the parks?
Another man calls in and asked about the oil spill near in the Yellowstone River - Jarvis says the Oil spill was 150 miles from Yellowstone so it did
not effect the park.
On another note, it's nice to "meet you" on here CopperFlower, I too have a similar past regarding college, but the differences for me are that I
never had any kids, and I had brain cancer when I was 17 - that is supposedly now reoccurring some 13 years later, and I've never managed to pay back
my student loans, which have now defaulted.
