In the portion of its website labeled “Media Reports Including Errors and Omissions,” the Bonner County Property Rights Council cites a flattering statement from the “National Association of Rural Land Owners.”
“Bonner County, ID is serious about protecting Property Rights. Every County and City in America can learn from this new, innovative approach to protecting property rights. They are just getting started but they have the right idea!”
High praise indeed. But who is this impressive National Association? The organization is not listed as a charity with the IRS and is evidently too small to be required to register as a charity with the State of Washington. Indeed, it appears to be simply one of several websites for the right-wing ranting of a single individual in western Washington.
Meanwhile, not listed in the PRC’s media clippings is a superb article from Trish Gannon at the River Journal. For anyone interested in the Bonner County Property Rights Council, we suggest starting with the River Journal article before taking the recommendation of an ideologue from Issaquah.
UPDATE 11/26/11: The “Media Reports” portion of the PRC website is no longer available from the PRC’s homepage, but the link above still works.
