    I hope all you concerned homesteaders take the time to sign the pledge with liberty ark.
    quote(
    Thanks to the great work of Ray Cunio and Doreen Hannes, and many others in the
    Liberty Ark Coalition, Senator Jim Talent and Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson, both
    from Missouri, introduced companion bills yesterday which will say the
    “...Secretary [USDA] shall not implement or carry out, and no Federal funds
    shall be used to implement or carry out, a National Identification System, or
    similar requirement, that mandates the participation of livestock owners.”

    This is a great step forward, but it is just a beginning. Before the bills were
    introduced, we submitted to the Senator and Congresswoman a list of additional
    issues that should be addressed in the bill. We were assured that our input will
    be requested as the bills move to hearings, and through the process.

    The bills have not yet been assigned a number. They will be posted on the
    Liberty Ark website as soon as they are available.

    This is a great example of what we can do when we all work together. We were
    able to tell the Congressmen that we represented 72 organizations, and more than
    1100 members in all 50 states. This is impressive, in view of the fact that we
    organized only a few months ago. But we need many more organizations, and many,
    many more individuals to sign up in support of this effort to eliminate the
    National Animal Identification System( NAIS).

    Please make an effort to get your friends and neighbors to visit the website
    (http://libertyark.net ) and sign the pledge. We’re going to need thousands of
    people if we are going to be successful in this battle. The folks who are
    pushing this plan have tons of money and powerful, paid lobbyists.

    Get a supply of the new brochure, and a CD so you can provide accurate
    information to all the people you know. We have reached a new stage in this
    fight, and we need to expand the army.

    Hey, that's an insult to my sheep! They're much smarter than many people I've met... :rolleyes:

    I had a lady at a fair tell me she didn't have any livestock, so it didn't really effect her. She was a spinner, though, and I pointed out that if farms like mine went out of business, she'd find it difficult to purchase fleece. That got her attention, and she signed our petition.

    I signed, and emailed everyone in my address book with the link to the Liberty Ark website along with a note about my own feelings.

    Thanks for the link. It's a very impressive, well-organized and straightfoward presentation of the case.

    :)
