Skip to comments.Virginia General Assembly: Senator John Watkins - Property Rights Don't Matter
Posted on 02/18/2012 3:22:51 AM PST by RightSideNews
Senator Watkins John C. Watkins, (Member of the Virginia Senate from the 10th district) claimed he is just a country boy and Im a God-fearing, God-believing Christian. If any of us think that we own the property, you better take a close look inside you, he continued, Because God and Mother Nature own everything. I understand exactly what he means. I have read this same thing in The Preamble to UN Agenda 21. It claims in this United Nations document that no one can really own property; it should be shared by all. This is, of course, a basic premise of Communism. I also contest the fact that this 31 year Senate veteran is still a Country boy. He has long ago moved into the Ruling Class.
He continued his admonishment by wagging his finger at the other members present, warning them they would be sorry when the cost to develop land condemned by the state would cost too much for the business people he was speaking up for to develop. He even noted that, and I paraphrase, one of the favorite phrases of Tea Partiers, Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness does not contain anything about property. I must say, after hearing the good Senators logic, I was thoroughly ashamed to have any connection to his political party.

Good article. ‘We the People’ need to make more trips like this & check up on our “representatives” and make sure they know they are being checked up on & held accountable. The Watkins comments were interesting ..... and I’m not surprised at his behavior. That ‘good old country boy’ needs to be put out to pasture.
Interesting... we`re going to be discussing that very issue Monday at our Peninsula Patriots meeting.
Agenda-21 backers are going to learn Virginians take their property rights very seriously.
Anyone that wants to take property for the “good for all” miss this one,
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbours house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbours wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbours.
Property back then meant a lot more than real estate.
nor his ass...
WE OWN IT ALLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!
ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL OF IT!!!!!
You proles are NOOOOTHHHHIINNGGGGG!!!!!!
Now go away.
“I sat incredulous as committee members were allowed to marginalize citizens that came before them to speak; snickering, leaving their chairs for no apparent reason, making faces at people in the gallery, carrying on side conversations that had some sort of punch line and making public jokes at the expense of those that came to speak, all while they were speaking!! I did note that the activist from the Sierra Club and a lobbyist from a business group, unlike the ordinary citizens that stood to speak to the committee, were treated with deference.”
Boy, I would have uncorked a few unpleasantries had I been treated that way...
They’d feel the sharp side of a Celtic tongue, that’s for sure.
Who the hell do they think they are?
Wait. The minute they taxed property - we lost our ‘rights’.
They - these snot-nosed statists - can take property AWAY...if taxes aren’t paid.
Maybe I’ll be there to take your hand
Maybe I’ll be there to share the land,
that they’ll be givin’ away
when we all live together.
The Guess Who. (and they also hated American women.)
Sounds like this “good ole country boy” listened to the Guess who a bit too much. Mother Nature? That’s the godess Gaia, isn’t it?
I wonder if he’s willing to give up his own property to
G-d and Mother Nature.
Country boy senator needs to read his Bible. God had a lot to say about respecting private property rights.
Translation: "All property belongs to government and the people who run it."
