Wait for the push to make them look like redneck bumpkins

I see a strong push to make it seem like the position of Sheriff is as outdated as the Constitution. I would keep an eye out for any laws or bills that allow city/state/fed to TRUMP the position of Sheriff locally.

Somebody want to do me a favor?

I am trying to lay low as possible right now, my daughter in law is on probation and we are new to the area. I know we already have their attention at some level, just for being new. Would someone else be willing to either email the local paper and ask them to ask our Sheriff?

Or call the Sheriff and ask? The incoming Sheriff is Ryan Zollman, that is who's opinion matters.
(208) 253-4227

I know this seems really cowardly, I feel like a coward to ask, but this is a tiny, tiny population. If I make that call, EVERYONE will know it by tomorrow and I am trying to NOT paint myself as any shade of "scary" to my new neighbors.

Thanks for the info Jane.....

No Government Agency Has The Right To Attack People Enjoying Their Own Land...Because This Is Our Backyard, God Given. http://www.grantedright.com/

Classic example

of too many 'chiefs and not enough indians'. I have heard some of these guys before. They are way, way, too late to the party. Silence is consent 'boys'. The private sector jobs are not coming back in your careers and there are not enough worker 'bees' to support both your bureaucratic lifestyles and pensions and those of the federal agencies. If you jumped in 10 years ago you could of made a difference for the future of your families and friends. You reap what you sow. I suggest you resign and commit your efforts 100 per cent like Sheriff Mack if you really want to make a difference. Until then you will have to give up the pedicures and pick up hammers and saws. I know it is not fair ;)


The sheriffHolds the most

The sheriff holds the most power next to the President. We need many more sheriffs like these. The sheriff can tell the FEDs to get lost. We have to have Constitution supporting Sheriffs.


You are correct. Unfortunately, many have taken federal funds which most likely negates any freedom of independent action. Most likely these guys too because their close association with all the new agencies set up 10 years ago.

Repent or Perish.


How About Montana & Wyoming.......

Seems like those places would already be on it. Anybody heard the status on them?

Sheriff Gilbertson

Although (and it is my understanding, because of a well deserve vacation with his wife) Josephine County Oregon Sheriff Gil Gilbertson was not in attendance with these other fine men and woman, he has been one of the leading spokes persons against these property rights assaults by Fed agencies in Southern Oregon. Here is what he had to say in a publicized interview titled: SHERIFF: This Land is Our Land, Feds Have No Jurisdiction! http://www.usobserver.com/archive/sep-11/sheriff-this-land-i... and his letter http://www.usobserver.com/archive/sep-11/Gil-Federal-Jurisdi...

Re: Sheriff Gilbertson

Yes! The clusters (counties) are coming together and growing!

Just west of Josephine is Curry Co. and just North of Curry is Coos County. These counties have a lot of like-minded people within and without their local govs. Don't forget Sheriff Palmer of Grant Co. (north east Or.) is already on board too. These OR. counties also merge, or butt up to, the No Calif. counties that are in agreement, strengthening the support.

YES! It's coming together!

This is a postive development

This is a postive development insofar is it starts putting law enforcement back in the hands of directly elected officials of the people.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Thank YOU for the response.....

David Haynie & BeeSting

In order to help get other sheriffs to get on the band wagon, this thread must stay going!

GEEZE! Getting anyone to respond to this UPDATE "HEMP FOR VICTORY" has been exasperating.

People please read the "Hemp for Victory" post below. Like most people the sheriffs just haven't got the word yet.

Look at this as your great oppertunity to change things.


David that Pacific Progress is a great site!

I Looked And Agree !

And I live in the state of Jefferson:




I'm sure this is the start of the vitally important vision held by Sheriff Mack.

Please, let’s work to keep the dream alive! I know things aren’t perfect for a lot of people here, but please keep in mind this is a new concept for some of these guys and like all of us to recognize that it takes a little time to learn this stuff and we're all in various stages of learning.

I am sure many of them ARE READING this thread. I think if we can get them to see some videos on hemp, and allowing for a little time for the stories to sink in, some probably would reconsider and start working to LEGALLY grow it.

As I said before on this post, that most of these guys “are reasonable and will talk with you" if they have the time. They can turn out to be your best friends and will play a big part in our country’s defense, IF YOU’LL WORK WITH THEM AND GIVE THEM THE CHANCE.

Please tell them your feelings and what you already KNOW about hemp. Please give links to the best, most accurate videos you know of dispelling the myths and showing the truth. The counties that these sheriffs represent are in desparate times and need more work/farming/income. Show them that hemp will give them that BEYOND THEY'RE WILDEST DREAMS!

For some talking points:

Hemp is a multi-billion dollar industry for the U.S. and we already LEGALLY import it NOW.
Hemp creates jobs.
Hemp has great medicinal/healing properties.
Hemp one of the best food sources available.
Hemp makes great, inexpensive building materials.
Hemp is good for the soil.
Hemp makes great clothing.
Hemp uses less water to grow.
Hemp makes oils/fuels
Hemp grows very fast enableing a quick reharvest.
Hemp as plastics.
Hemp as car parts.
Hemp as vitamin source.
Hemp grows just about anywhere.
Hemp etc, etc, etc……

PLEASE people, if you don’t even give this a chance, then YOU’RE BLOWIN IT! Let's come together on this, we need each other!

Sheriff's please watch these links:

Hemp for Victory
The Market for Hemp Products

What do you think the best Hemp documentary is for the sheriffs to see? Please post it.

I'm sure my definition of

I'm sure my definition of tyranny is quite a bit different than these sheriffs version. I'm pretty sure all these sheriffs happily sh_t on the Constitution to enhance their own power. Hey cop where in the Constitution does it say my life liberty or property can be infringed because I grow a plant?

Generally speaking...

...these guys don't spend their time going after legal growers and distributors. It really is a different political philosophy here in Del Norte.

Cuimhnigh orm, a Dhia, le haghaidh maith.

What the heck is a legal

What the heck is a legal grower or distributor?

So they go after illegal growers? WTF is an illegal grower? Growing or selling a plant does not infringe upon any individual's life liberty or property but arresting someone for those things certainly does.

As an individual I can see no other use for police/sheriffs other than to apprehend an individual that has infringed upon another individuals life liberty or property. What other use do they have?

Standing up to the feds

...and taking their rightful place as the head of the executive branch in their county.

Don't mess with Jefferson State!!!

Sheriff Dean Wilson is one of my neighbors. Del Norte and the surrounding area is very libertarian, and the politics here are very different than either the Bay Area or southern California...

If he is not seeing this thread already, please ask him to see the post called "Hemp for Victory" I posted above. When I have time I want to get up there to meet with him.
