  1. WeAreStardust

    There seems to be a concerted effort by certain politicians of a particular party to try and drown the federal government in the bathtub, so to speak. One of the tactics they use to do this is to repeat the same lies over and over again. Because, if they repeat a lie often enough people will begin to believe it and be distracted from voting in their best interests.

    Another great article! Keep up getting the truth out there!

    • It’s very disconcerting and maddening. The facts should be the deciding factor, but sadly, it is blind political bias and emotion. Thanks for the encouragement. 🙂

  2. There are three main types of federal jurisdiction. Exclusive, concurrent and proprietary. Under exclusive, the feds call all the shots. Under concurrent, the feds and state share jurisdiction equally. Proprietary basically means the feds are essentially like any other property owner. The main difference between concurrent and proprietary is under concurrent jurisdiction, the feds can use the Assimilative Crimes Act. Under proprietary they cannot. A great example of all three is in the greater Yellowstone area. Yellowstone National Park is exclusive, Grand Teton NP is concurrent and the National Elk Refuge is proprietary.

    Great article, Greta.

    • That’s really interesting, thank you for sharing. I wasn’t aware of those three different types of jurisdictions and the distinctions. Knowing this might help me out in future posts. 🙂
