There Is a Real Chance to Stop Funding for “Sustainable Communities.









Action Alert:

(This in from Virginia property

rights activist Cathy Turner)


The House of Representatives have cut funding from

Obama’s Partnership for Sustainable Communities program.

The program has been targeted for elimination from the

House FY 2012 spending bill.


Defunding Sustainable Development has also come through a

Department of Transportation bill, a draft of which completely

eliminates funding for what are called TIGER grants, which provides

funding for the largest grants through the Partnership for Sustainable

Communities program.


This is great news for those of us opposed to Sustainable Development.

It means less money and fewer weapons coming out of Washington, DC

to enforce this assault on property rights and America’s way of life.


Now the spending bill is moving to the Senate – the danger zone.

Sustainablists are planning a major push to get the Senate to replace

the appropriations for the Sustainable Communities budget.

The American Planning Association (APA) is leading the charge,

calling for massive pressure to be put on Senators in what the APA

is calling “Planners Day,” set for September 20th.


The APA’s message to the Senators is that the cuts

“ignores both our nation’s jobs crisis and the drastic

need for infrastructure investment.”


In fact, the House action is not only fiscally responsible in

a day when the government is completely broke, but it is a lie

that the program will help either jobs or infrastructure.

The exact opposite is true.

Sustainable Development is a jobs killer and it destroys infrastructure –

refusing to build roads, tearing down dams and the like.


We can strike a huge blow against Sustainable Development.

Action to take:

On September 20th, call both of your U.S. Senators and

demand that they maintain the House restrictions on the

Sustainability Planning grants and the caps on planning

expenses now called for in the Fiscal Year spending bill.

Tell them America cannot afford these grants.

The cuts will save billions of dollars and keep special interests

out of your community’s planning decisions.

Tell them you oppose Sustainable Development.

The Senate switchboard is (202) 224-3121


Make the calls and counter the impact of one of the nation’s

most powerful forces behind Sustainable Development (APA).

Win this fight and we will show that we are now strong enough

to turn the tide away from top down control and soviet-style

government – and towards freedom!


If you have a chance, call your Representative in the House

and thank them for standing firm against this Sustainable

Development monster. And ask them to continue to stand firm

if the final bill goes to a conference committee.

Defund Sustainable Development and strike a blow for fiscal

sanity and freedom.

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
