RAIN MAN: In Obamaland A Man Is Jailed for Catching Rain Water on His Land

Posted on July 2, 2014

You’d think that collecting water that falls from the sky on to your property wouldn’t equate jail time, right?  Right.  But you would be dead wrong sucker!  You can’t do that in Obamaland.  Check this out Clashers.

( – Gary Harrington, the Oregon man convicted of collecting rainwater and snow runoff on his rural property surrendered Wednesday morning to begin serving his 30-day, jail sentence in Medford, Ore.

“I’m sacrificing my liberty so we can stand up as a country and stand for our liberty,” Harrington told a small crowd of people gathered outside of the Jackson County (Ore.) Jail.

Several people held signs that showed support for Harrington as he was taken inside the jail.

Harrington was found guilty two weeks ago of breaking a 1925 law for having, what state water managers called “three illegal reservoirs” on his property. He was convicted of nine misdemeanors, sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined over $1500 for collecting rainwater and snow runoff on his property.

Sounds like a joke, but agencies like the EPA take this seriously.

More regulations are on the way. They're going to try to get as much control as they can between now and January 2017....

  • Your what hurts??
Yep...there are some really strong laws all over the country regarding who owns the rain that falls from the sky.

This is not a unique case.
