I Have supported Blue Ribbon Coalition and AMA financially through clubs and organizations starting over 20 years ago and still believe in their subsistence.
Blue Ribbon has sold us down the “reservation path” with accepting the new Government plan of all “closed unless posted open” And excepting the designation of “OHV” a term coined to legislate against. We don’t need to play by the governments new set of rules because we already possess RIGHTS. A compromise will only cost on our end.
I like how the AMA and manufacturers (they didn’t do effective squat) came to bat for the private land owners affected by the legislation passed in some counties of California eliminating and severely restricting the use of “OHV” on PRIVATE LAND. I have included the manufacturers in this incitement of guilty neglect due to creation of LOUD exhausts that inflame the non riding public. Wait until the democratic process is initiated in your local riding areas as citizen’s rise up against you being there. Blm is effectively using this on us now, proposing “OHV” emphasis areas” (areas that already exist over 50 years) and then collecting hundreds of local citizen and enviro/protesters to use against us. Divide and conquer. NOISE has screwed us here. If not for offensive sound levels most people would not even know or care that we are present, but that’s a subject for another 20 or so posts
Unless you are actively searching out our Legal Rights to Public lands you will not realize what a sell out this is and how bad all Americans are being screwed out of the rights granted to us. Welcome to the Kings forest preservation…Now get out or view from the exterior…
We are currently gathering local support and info for court battles on these issues and hope that it can be pushed to public notice and even the supreme court. There may be found even criminal charges against agencies and individuals for screwing the public trust and willful retooling of the law and code.
This battle is just starting to get rolling.. and we will have a website open soon to read, collect and distribute information. If we do not educate ourselves and fight for our granted rights we will lose them. Don’t trust it to someone else or you can’t complain with the results IMO. Get the ball rolling yourself. We are all busy with life but must fight to keep whats ours.
For some interesting facts read;
Terms to look up and understand; Public lands, Public domain, Rights of way, Title to land, Highway, Rite of Passage, Right of way, Grant. (The government agencies are not “God or King” and cannot urinate on your rights or the rules unless you are ignorant of them. We have commissioned them to be our servants of public lands to serve our granted rights, not our lords)
Code to read and think about; RS2477 grant of 1866, 43USC932, 36CFR5, 16USC-27 mandated trail maintenance “Where found” 43USC5350 and 8351.0-6, Omnibus consolidations act of 1997, RS2477 Blm has no authority, Omnibus consolidations act of 1996. “Bad law” HR2262
Start searching and you will be surprised at what you will find in the “Books” and court records that the agencies are neglecting and trying to “Rewrite”
