When you own something, no matter what it is, liberals don’t think it is completely yours. They say that the government lets you have that.
This was seen recently in Oregon where the government wanted access to people’s land for a survey. One of the responses from a homeowner was simply epic!
“(Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife) staff will be conducting surveys for foothill yellow-legged frogs and other amphibians over the next few months,” a letter from the Department of Fish and Wildlife to homeowners Larry and Amanda Anderson that was posted on Facebook read.
“As part of this research we would like to survey the creek on your property,” the letter explained. “I am writing this letter to request your permission to access your property.”
“Recent research indicates that the foothill-yellow legged frogs have declined significantly in recent years … Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated and will help contribute to the conservation of this important species.”
The homeowner in question decided to allow access to his land — on the same terms that government uses when it deals with its citizens.
“I have divided our 2.26 acres into 75 equal survey units with a draw tag for each unit,” the Andersons’ letter began. “Application fees are only $8.00 per unit after you purchase the ‘Frog Survey License’ ($120.00 resident/$180 non-resident) … You will also need an ‘Invasive Species‘ stamp for the vehicle ($15.00 for the first vehicle and $5.00 each add’l vehicle).”
“Survey gear can only include a net with 2″ diameter made of 100% organic cotton netting with no longer than an 18″ handle, non weighted and no deeper than 6′ from net frame to bottom of net. Handles can only be made of BPA-free plastics or wooden handles. After 1 p.m. you can use a net with a 3” diameter if you purchase the frog net endorsement ($75.00 resident/$250 non-resident).
“Any frogs captured that are released will need to be released with an approved release device back into the environment unharmed,” he added.
