Several years ago the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District created a new regulation that would create a new tax burden on the citizens. This tax would be determined by measuring the amount of impermeable surface (roof, asphalt driveway, etc) on a property (business, home, church, etc.). The logic (and I use this term loosely) goes something like this. The more impermeable surface you have, the more storm water run-off you create, and you, the citizen must pay for any harm to the environment that might be created.
Unfortunately, there is no proof that the water that runs off of your roof does any damage to the environment, nor did you the citizen have any chance to voice your objection to this tax (Does “taxation without representation” ring any bells?).
Again, for those of us who understand Agenda 21, this is just another way to tax the citizen into the poor house while “nudging” us to build taller, narrower, and hopefully smaller homes. Got to love those folks who just can’t get through a day without trying to control our every decision.
Last month (September 2014) the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law provided a Merit Brief to the Supreme Court of Ohio. The results of this case, which could have important implications beyond the state, will not be known for some time. To learn more about this case, follow this link.

Bicycling is no doubt good exercise. The point of the
article below is not to demonize bicyclists but to explain how bicycle
enthusiasts are being used to advance the Leftist agenda-Agenda 21.
Remember the ultimate goal of Agenda 21/sustainable
development/Green New Deal is a One World Order where the Elite gain total
control of all human activity. One of the key goals to control human activity
is to limit the modes of transportation within the boundaries of metropolitan
cities, while restricting travel outside of large metropolitan areas (allowing
the areas outside of the cities to re-wild). This means travel by car must be
replaced by travel on foot, bicycle, or mass transit.
Eliminating cars in a country, which adores its cars and the freedom to travel independently, is no small feat. It requires the use of many strategies. One of the strategies many legislators are considering is taxing vehicle miles traveled (VMT), which will make drivers think twice before taking the much-beloved road trip. A second strategy is to make the driving experience as miserable as possible. One way to do this is to encourage bicyclists to tie up lanes on the roads-especially busy roads. This has an added benefit for the politically driven Progressive. If enough bicyclists clog the roads, predictably some of them will be injured or killed. These deaths and injuries then create a “health issue” allowing the government to get involved, which then can be lobbied by the Progressives to use our tax dollars to redesign our roads to include dedicated bike lanes.
In other words the Agenda 21-pushing-Progressives create the
problem-forcing fast moving automobiles to share finite space with fragile,
slow moving bicyclists- so they can achieve what they really want, which is to
get the government to spend massive amounts of our tax dollar to help build the
infrastructure needed to create One World Order cities.
Who cares (certainly not the Progressives), if it costs a
fortune, bicyclists are injured and killed, and ultimately and sadly we
voluntarily loss our ability to travel freely around our country.

Normally the author of the website www.Agenda21course.com does not compose the articles included in the newsletter. In this the author would like to make an exception.
The official website for Smart Growth, www.smartgrowthamerica.org , is working actively, aggressively, and successfully to advance Agenda 21 in an attempt to transform our cities.
The Smart Growth America website lists 10 principles which are currently being used to transform our cities. What the website does not tell you are the many negative consequences to the quality life of those living in the cities. Nor does it tell the truly horrible impact these principle will have on those living in the rural lands. Nor does it tell you how Smart Growth will steal freedom from every single American regardless of where they live. This then is why the information in this article is so important.
Below are the 10 smart growth principles listed on the www.smartgrowthamerica.org website which are being used to convince those going to the site just how wonderful will be the results of smart growth planning. You may click on any of the principles to see more information.
1. Mix land uses
As you no doubt know, if the left can keep environmental justice moving down the track, we will be nudged/forced off of the rural lands and into town to be monitored through the use of Smart Growth policies. Here are two examples of Smart Growth policies . To learn how the behavior of Seattle citizens are being controlled by the “garbage police”, click on this link.

Little things can go a long way towards transforming America-and not always in a good way.
One of those “little things” are the scooters, which are suddenly flooding our cities in large numbers. In Columbus, Ohio eight vendors will each be allowed to put 500 scooters on the streets/sidewalks. Safety wise, what could possibly go wrong in this scenario? Never fear. The solution according to the article is to simply “redesign the city streets” spending untold millions of dollars to allow the safer movement of the scooter riders and bicyclists.
More importantly the result, as more and more of the road is being dedicated to the use of scooters and bicycles, is greater congestion for those driving cars. This in turn encourages more and more folks to move closer to the downtown resulting in the building of more and more high rises to accommodate the influx of people to the downtown.
Voile! The city is redesigned into a Smart Growth city where the lives of the now packed and stacked citizenry can be more easily controlled by the Elite.
Perhaps a “little thing” like adding scooters to the city streets and sidewalks is not such a “little thing.”
