With each passing year, SHTFPlan.com’s Mac Slavo notes there are more and more challenges to personal property and individual sovereignty.
Despite the resilience it lends to our national security, the government has proven again and again that it wishes to clamp down on the ability to prep, survive and self-sustain off grid, and without the need for the system’s supply chain.
You can hardly build your own place, grow your own food, collect your own water or take care of yourself without the intervention of those in authority. There is need to push back against this continued intrusion of our lives.
Couple Forced to Destroy 40-Year-Old Pond On Their Own Property Because Govt Owns The Rainwater
An Oregon couple has been told they must destroy a 2-acre pond on their land — the property’s most attractive feature — because the government said so.
– Oregon man serving prison sentence for collecting rainwater on his own property (Natural News, Aug 7, 2014):
An Oregon landowner has been subjected to a 30-day prison sentence for what he says was a simple act of collecting rainwater on his own property. CNS News reports that Gary Harrington was convicted of nine misdemeanors and sentenced to 30 days in prison, as well as slapped with a $1,500 fine, for diverting snow runoff and rainwater into three reservoirs on his property, a move that local officials say violates an antiquated law governing personal water use.
Known as the “Rain Main,” Harrington reportedly built the reservoirs, which hold some 13 million gallons of water, for his own personal use. One of the reservoirs he stocked with largemouth bass for leisure purposes, and when wildfires emerge in the area, he says the water from this and the other two reservoirs can be used for mitigatory purposes. In Harrington’s mind, the operation is perfectly legal and a legitimate use of his own property.
So it was not true (as reported by MSM) that she is drinking rainwater…

She collects rainwater to drink.
Told you many times before that distilled liquids are THE SECRET!
Enzymes and organic minerals from fruit and vegies are also very important.
Once you cook your stuff the enzymes and many other nutrients like vitamins are getting destroyed.
Rainwater is distilled water, but nowadays comes with many problematic/deadly substances it it:

If ever there were a perfect example of government inanity, this is it.
Maybe you didn’t know – and chances are excellent you didn’t – that if you have the audacity to collect rainwater and snow runoff on your own property, for your own consumption, you can and will go to jail for it.

– Oregon criminalizes permaculture; claims state ownership over all rainwater – ponds and swales restricted – jail time for violators (Natural News, July 29, 2012):
There’s nothing more refreshing than standing in a cool, summertime rain shower. Or bathing in the warm sunlight on a crisp spring day. Or inhaling the cool autumn air, fresh with the scent of turning leaves and pine needles. These things — rainwater, sunlight, air — have long been assumed to be not only free, but un-claimable. You can’t claim to own the sunlight that falls on my front yard, for example. A corporation can’t claim intellectual property ownership over the air that you breathe and demand you pay a royalty for inhaling.
But today, Jackson County, Oregon says it owns YOUR rainwater, and the county has sentenced a man to 30 days in jail and fined him over $1500, for the supposed “crime” of collecting rainwater on his own property.
The man’s name is Gary Harrington, and he owns over 170 acres of land in Jackson County. On that land, he has three ponds, and those ponds collect rainwater that falls on his land. Common sense would say Gary has every right to have ponds with water on his 170 acres of land, but common sense has been all but abandoned in the state of Oregon.
Much like California, Oregon is increasingly becoming a collectivist state. You didn’t build that! The government built that! You don’t own that! The government owns that! That rainwater that just fell on your land? That’s the government’s rainwater, and you’re going to jail if you try to steal from the government!
– Collecting rainwater may be considered a privilege, not a right (End The Lie, May 1, 2012):
If you think you own the right to water that falls on your own property, you could be mistaken.
States such as Utah, Colorado and Washington (more on the various laws later) have had laws on the books limiting property owners from collecting the water falling on their own homes and land since officials say the rain belongs to someone else.
