It seems I need permission to paint my house, go on certain hiking trails, go camping, etc. I need a permit or license for many other activities. I can not go in many areas on the coast they now call conservation land.
and it's only going to get worse. there are new rules and laws coming out all the time that infringe directly on our freedom. we'll have to wear a life jacket in a boat soon here in Canada because the do-gooders want everything we do to be controlled. wait for another 15 or 20 years and the freedom we brag about now will only be a memory.
