Herald and News Letter to the Editor May 1, 2012 by farmer Bob King, Klamath Falls
Editorís note: Because of the tenor of the remarks in this letter, the Herald and News contacted the targets and asked for responses, which are below:
The truth about the KBRA: Dan Keppen and Greg Addington are implants from the federal governmentís agenda to depopulate rural America.
They are here to destroy the farms in the Klamath Basin and in that it will destroy the economy of our community.
Does anyone remember the year 2001 when the government took the water away from farms, and there were our fellow citizens standing in food lines for assistance? Well, I do and it was sad and degrading to hardworking families that depended on the economic base from the farmers.
In the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement, there is not one single thing that guarantees water for the farms and it actually says it will take water from the farms.
Keppen and Addington have been lying to this community all for a position in the New World Order at the cost to our community and childrenís future.
The KBRA/Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement might as well been written by Hitler, Gorbachev and Stalin. Ask Keppen and Addington what page, what paragraph, and what line in the KBRA promises water for the farmers. And donít let them beat around the bush, hold their feet to fire. They will not show you because itís not there.
