Some things should be rather obvious as a "no, don't do that".
“This is the most significant investigation of damage to archaeological resources in Yellowstone National Park’s recent history.”
This should get your blood boiling if you live in California. A few democrats have decided as early as 2024, you cannot buy any more small gas powered engines. Post hole diggers, generators, dredges, lawnmowers, weed-eaters, chainsaws to name a few. If this doesn't get you to call these politicians...AND your representatives, nothing will. And no, this is not an April fools joke. ... See more
A new bill that would phase out the sale of new gas-powered small off-road engines (SORE) by 2024 was introduced in the Assembly Monday. Assembly Bill
We wanted to share a post by a close friend of ours who was talking about our outing coming up in La Panza CA soon: Just waiting for the May AMRA outing at the Contender claim in La Panza. Here is a handful of what comes from the watershed that runs through this claim. A 9.7 gram nugget was found where we held this claim’s first AMRA Outing, 25 feet from the main road!!! AMRA has been there for us since it’s creation. Great things are happening amidst all this disorganization of our country lately. By joining us, exercising your right to mine, is a great way to realize the benefits of what Mother Nature does for your heath and shows we LOVE our freedoms!!! See you there!! #americanminingrightsassociation ... See more
After 8 days in Facebook jail, AMRA's President is now able to post again. The hypocrisy of how they apply their "standards" from conservative folks to the folks on the left is literally jaw dropping. Silencing speech is un-American. ... See more
Couple of things today: We have submitted certified FOIA's (Freedom Of Information Act) to the BLM on the bulldozed mine in Nevada and now the clock starts ticking for them to provide the entire file of who specifically approved this egregious mistake in dozing an active mine. We are also exploring the possible need for Public Records Requests (PRR) to the state if they have any involvement and/or knowledge. Also today: We are having a formal conference call with the BLM in Arizona on why they have not approved or rejected a Plan of Operations (PoO) for a small-scale miner after his submission of the PoO 5 years ago. That's right, 5 years ago. The job of both the BLM and the USFS is to foster and encourage mining and to also evaluate/process PoO's in a timely manner (30 days to respond). 5 years is not a delay, it is a prohibition, is costly for the miner and is yet another example of how these agencies....in some cases and areas...do whatever they can to prohibit small scale mining. This particular proposed operation is off the grid, is not an environmentally sensitive area, has had the environmental studies performed, is extremely defined and should have been approved in under 60 days like the numerous other PoO's in the close vicinity. This is one of the reasons why we created the Accountability Act for the USFS and BLM and were taking it to Washington DC last March (2020). People who endlessly obstruct and operate outside the scope and course of their employment in any agency should not be able to continue to obstruct, but should be fired, like they were in the Veterans Administration Accountability Act. If it were not for the virus closures a year ago shutting down our trip to Washington DC to promote this with some United States Senators, we believe it would have passed. Frustrating to say the least...... ... See more
Hope to see many of you here !
We build a lot of different things. From 2 story tiny homes (yes, and it is very cool) to tool/garden sheds and our current project, a 210' cedar privacy fence. One of our best buddies is building his new home in Nevada and was shocked by the cost of his building materials. We are all experiencing inflation and the severely rising cost of lumber. The reason is pretty simple if anyone remembers economics 101. If you print money without backing it with anything like gold, it devalues it, therefore it takes more and more of that money to purchase something like lumber, concrete or even sheetrock. This picture is accurate (we've checked two days ago at Home Depot) and is indicative of where we are heading after the passage of the nearly 2 trillion dollar so-called stimulus. With the new proposal from this administration of yet another "stimulus" of 3 more trillion, what do you think $800 will buy if that's passed? ... See more
Everyone needs to pay close attention to this Supreme Court case on gun rights and warrantless searches of your home, we certainly are watching this with closely. The 2nd and 4th Amendments may be severely impacted by this case. The Biden administration is supporting warrantless searches and announced yesterday Mr. Biden will in fact sign Executive Orders on gun control. From the article: "You may remember that last summer, congressional Democrats fought bitterly to end qualified immunity for police, arguing that it shielded law enforcement officers and agencies from liability. Apparently, though, it’s now OK with the Biden administration — if only for a case that involves seizing weapons." ... See more
The administration first brief to the Supreme Court is in a case involving the warrantless seizure of weapons.
