  • The struggle between the government and the people is a story that has a long history not just on our land but throughout the world. How far should the government regulation be able to extend?

    It seems that as the years go by the regulations meant “to keep everyone safe and keep everything fair” are starting to go a bit to far!

    While undoubtedly those pushing this type of regulatory oversight have good intentions, their strict application of the underwriting law has literally caused millions of dollars, immense worry and anxiety – for not treating a ditch the way a bureaucrat thinks are best.

    This issue goes beyond what most people think so keep reading to find out how.

      Government overreach is destroying the country. The EPA has a large number of employees watching porn during their work day by their own admissions. Even after being caught they’re not fired… wrong!
