Mandatory Ranch Management Plan
illegal and unconstitutional
letter from Mark Baird, Scott Valley rancher and commercial
This program is illegal and unconstitutional and is simply
another attempt by yet another agency to gain money and power.
Do people who irrigate their lawns in Los Angeles need permits?
Is there a presumption of guilt which necessitates the permit to
discharge waste from every water user in the water shed? Where
is the historical evidence to suggest that any one of us is
discharging waste at any given moment. Are we discharging waste
all year round, even though we do not receive water for more
than a couple of months? Is rain considered a non point source
pollution now. Do all of the Tar and Gravel roofs of all of the
factories in California have a permit to discharge the rain
water which falls upon their properties. Do all of the people of
California have permits for that matter? The Fourteenth
Amendment guarantees us equal protection under the law. Where in
the Constitution does the State have permission to control land
which it does not own through a ranch management plan, which by
its very existence invites scrutiny and possible modification or
disapproval by some appointed body. Sounds like Communism to me.
Here is my ranch management plan: I will do whatever I want on
the property which I own and pay for.
I WILL NOT SUBMIT, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!
I will not obtain this illegal permit to farm. Nor will I submit
any ranch management plan to anyone EVER!!!
