I guess I don’t keep up with current affairs close enough. I usually don’t care what the rest of the world is doing as long as they leave me alone. Now that is not exactly true, I do care what is happening everywhere, but it means a lot more when it affects us personally. I have told you before that I belong to the G.P.A.A. (Gold Prospectors of America Association), but sadly, I don’t get to go prospecting as much as I would like to. They have a publication that they send to members every other month, called the Pick & Shovel Gazette. This last issue had a very scary article in it concerning the UN Agenda 21. This is a plan to severely limit human use and enjoyment on public owned and/or controlled lands. I mean from the worst case of not allowing access at all to the limiting of what can be done on these lands, such as hunting, fishing, rock collecting, prospecting, artifact collecting, and the list goes on and on and on.
OK, you say, that doesn’t sound that bad. Well, some may think that it may be OK to have small, limited, desolate areas restricted from human access, but that is not quite what the UN Agenda 21 has in mind. Now, I have a rule not to write about politics or religion in my blogs, but I just have to let you know about this situation. Most of my readers are, have been, or are planning on becoming RVers, or at least enjoy fishing, hunting, and just being able to take long hikes in the forest, deserts, plains, seashores, mountains, etc. Here is a map of the areas of the United States that would be affected by this agenda, if we let it. Looks to me like almost all of it. I see very little of the green color for “normal use”. What do you think?
Do some research on your own. The article I read was way too long to reprint for you. If you know someone who is a member of the G.P.A.A., ask them to lend you the February/March issue so you can read the article. Now, if you can after reading this, have a good day, you hear?
