From a report discussing opposition to proposed Clean Water legislation that would allow the government to restrict what owners can do with real estate that has water on it, Jan Goldman-Carter of the National Wildlife Foundation says "...There are a number of very generous exemptions in there particularly for ranchers and farmers that I know have been worried about the effect of this legislation, but in fact those worries are largely unfounded,"
How nice of her to be so very generous with property owners. Next thing you know, they'll "let me" put a new roof on the house or add a patio. Permits? What? I need to get government permission for that now? Whose property is it anyway?
Welcome to Socialism.
