Rainwater collection being criminalized in U.S. to solidify total government dependence

by Daniel Barker, Natural News:

You might be aware that it is illegal to collect rainwater on your own property in some states, but did you know that doing so could actually land you in jail? That is exactly what is happening to Gary Harrington of Eagle Point, Oregon. He is now facing a 30-day jail sentence and fines of more than $1,500.

His crime? Harrington has been collecting rainwater in three reservoirs on his property, and the government doesn’t like it. In Oregon, all water is considered property of the state whether it flows from the tap or falls from the sky.

Collecting, storing and using rainwater is permitted if you obtain a permit from the state, but Harrington’s permits were revoked. The reasons why are not clear.

    This is yet another classic example of government gone rogue. Typically this is a Dem idea, as it tends to crop up in Dem-controlled states. My own state of WA does not prohibit the collection of rain-water, so anyone can do that if they wish. It makes sense to collect rain-water, especially if one has a small farm or even just lives in the country and wants to ensure that they have water during the drier months of the year. Things of this nature are prime examples of government that is too big, too intrusive, and too well gorged on our money. A much smaller and less well funded government would not have the time or the resources with which to harass the citizens with trivia of this kind… especially not in the Pacific NW where rainfall is quite abundant in many areas… annoyingly so at times.

    They don’t want any evidence of the chem-trailing stored away that may possibly shed light on their crimes against humanity.
