Iowa Defense Alliance: Clarke County Farm Bureau supports taking land from farmers

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

Farm Bureau members support proposed lake ... Surprise, disgust and
anger are some of the feelings I had when I read the Osceola-Sentinel
Tribune Letter to the Editor by the "Board of Directors, Clarke County
Farm Bureau" stating that they were in support of the proposed lake in
Clarke County. This local group now has publicly communicated that
they have chosen to support the land grab for recreational use
disguised in the need for water. I share a portion of the letter
below. ... Obviously the Clarke County group believes that taking land
is for the good of all the county residents. I do not know the thought
process behind what the Clarke County Iowa Farm Bureau used to decide
what 'betterment' is by choosing to support the lake project but after
checking out the Iowa Farm Bureau website I must conclude that yet
another group bites the dust for not living up to what they stand for.
