Thia ‘Natural news’ post refers to the US, where much of the ‘Big Brother’ publicity originates. We, in the internet ‘free-thinking’ news arena, do not get a lot of input from Europe, for example, or other areas where personal freedoms are probably being eroded in similar ways. We don’t get to hear details about constraints applied by the countries being forced (politically) into austerity programs by the globalist machine.
Here, in Australia, much doubt is expressed about the agenda’s of our government’s actions in the water control area and we know that carbon controls are not scientifically justifiable. Some water collection laws have been eased to enable conservation of rainwater. Others concerning dam construction have not, but there is a genuine need to prevent exploitation by rich landowners.
Anyway, I thought this worth publicising because it certainly represents injustice in the US and serves as a warning to Australians to remain alert to similar possible ‘Big Brother’ activities.
(NaturalNews) Many of the freedoms we enjoy here in the U.S. are quickly eroding as the nation transforms from the land of the free into the land of the enslaved, but what I’m about to share with you takes the assault on our freedoms to a whole new level. You may not be aware of this, but many Western states, including Utah, Washington and Colorado, have long outlawed individuals from collecting rainwater on their own properties because, according to officials, that rain belongs to someone else.
As bizarre as it sounds, laws restricting property owners from “diverting” water that falls on their own homes and land have been on the books for quite some time in many Western states. Only recently, as droughts and renewed interest in water conservation methods have become more common, have individuals and business owners started butting heads with law enforcement over the practice of collecting rainwater for personal use.
