It's outrageous. Perhaps they envy his freedom?

thats just wrong, I hope Mr. Thompsons lawyer can help him. seems like they don't want us to survive life in simple ways. we have 2 wood burning stoves just for the fact we don't want high heating bills with lots of taxes tacked on. we chop our own wood off a relatives property and in the spring we plant more to replace what we took in addition my husband always shares with the heavy chores around her house that she can't do anymore. all these give mes who want to control us are going to forget how to survive themselves.

Thanks Sully! Sounds like you all are doing things like they should be done. Kudos to you!

If government wants to concentrate on living without being connected to sewer or water, how about shanties under bridges, other hovels the home-less make do with?

The person in this article ***OWNS*** the property he occupies in the camper he also ***OWNS***. Something about government's legal respect for private property and ownership of real property seems a bit 'off'.

Thanks Konane,
That's what this country has come too when they pass all these little local ordnances. More people should be gathering together and going to more town meetings to change or stop pending ordnances.
I was just reading about mini houses just this past couple weeks. Some being built on wheels.
Think I got onto it from an article from my homepage. new homes being downsized and stuff like that.

Thanks JAP! Governments have become too accustomed to revenue generated in boom times, and are making grabs in every direction they can to continue providing services in order to buy votes.

Seems people are waking up, becoming informed and voting accordingly. At least I hope so. And yes people are downsizing in great numbers which is evidenced in Craigslist ads selling or even giving away items.

These small towns have gotten totally out of hand with their do's and dont's. The American civil liberty's needs to step in and help man's plight. Or, better yet this man needs to get as many signatures as he can and have this council evicted from office. Stay out of the mans life. If this is how he chooses to live HIS life on his own property, so be it period.
These council members need to stick their eviction notices where the sun don't shine...!!

Thanks Maddog! Yes a good old fashioned recall might provide a much needed reality check.   

Governments are behaving like homeowners' associations creating rules, passing them as laws and restrictive ordinances. Difference is a purchaser is apprised of homeowners' association rules prior to purchasing so they can decide whether they can live with them or not.

38 acres. I say it's a land grab.

Thanks Time*treat! You are probably correct.
