Obama’s national monument designations total 550 million acres

A Handbook for Ranch Managers If Bareback Yomama was a Republicrat, the Demopublicans would be whining, “How many starving inter-city black kids would those 550 million acres feed?” The Barnum and Bailey Circus has gone out of business and the uS government has taken its place. — jtl, 419
Urge Congress to pass the Improved National Monument Designation Process Act to curtail abuse of the Antiquities Act.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual For some environmental activist groups, the best way to protect the land is to not use it at all. These same activist groups love what President Barack Obama has been up to in his final moments as our nation’s elected top gun.

Under the Antiquities Act (signed into law by President Theodore Roosevelt), presidents have the authority to designate national monuments without the consent of Congress. Obama’s total to date? 550 million acres.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewHis most recent move was the expansion of the Oregon’s Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, which includes 42,000 acres of public and privately-owned land on the Oregon/California border.

In the name of environmental stewardship, Obama’s designations are nothing more than the largest federal land grab in our nation’s history.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsSo what’s the true underlying problem? It’s putting ranchers out of business. It’s removing cattle grazing, which is beneficial to the land in terms of wildfire management and soil aeration and improvement. It will be extremely costly to taxpayers as the government now must support the land. And it kills important industries like agriculture, timber and energy by eliminating jobs and limiting America’s ability to produce consumer goods.

Enough is enough.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)In a recent press release, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) is urging Congress to swiftly pass legislation introduced last week by U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) that would curtail similar abuses in the future. Murkowski chairs the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute“Once again, President Obama made a unilateral decision to lock off thousands of acres without appropriate environmental or economic assessment,” said Ethan Lane, executive director of the Public Lands Council (PLC) and NCBA federal lands. “This decision will permanently alter a community and potentially put at least five ranching families out of business. This continued abuse of the Antiquities Act speaks to the need of permanent reform – no administration should have such unchecked authority to destroy a community.”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)We need to get on the phone and urge our elected officials in Washington D.C. to pass Murkowski’s bill, Improved National Monument Designation Process Act, without delay.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)This bill, if passed, “would require Congressional and state approval for the designation of any new monument, bringing the reform needed to curtail the on-going abuse of the Antiquities Act.”

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

edited by

Dr Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

Is now available in both PAPERBACK and Kindle

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
