Ayn Rand

The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand

And I would add that “selective enforcement” gives them total control. — jtl, 419

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.

    Jim,         I’ve been the victim of precisely such thing.  Google Corcoran v. Sullivan to see what I mean with the proviso that you don’t believe a word of the “official version”.                                                                                            Brian in Chile

    • Yep. Back when I was still teaching (agricultural business), student’s frequently would have questions pertaining to business law. In earlier days, I could give them a good, legally sound, answer from my own courses in business law. But, it later years, it got to the point where that was not possible.

      So, I would always answer the question with a caveat, “Well it used to be this way (XYZ) but do not put too much faith in that because that was yesterday. I don’t know the answer for today because they seem to be making the law up as we go.”
