White House Rural Council

Section One of Executive Order 13575, which was signed by President Obama on June 9 2011 states the following:

Section 1. Policy. Sixteen percent of the American population lives in rural counties. Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead. These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation. Though rural communities face numerous challenges, they also present enormous economic potential. The Federal Government has an important role to play in order to expand access to the capital necessary for economic growth, promote innovation, improve access to health care and education, and expand outdoor recreational activities on public lands.


Mr. President and your WHRC, Local Governments for Sustainability USA (ICLEI USA), Green Building Council (USGBC), UN and Agenda 21:


Yours Truely,

Outlaw Farmer

PS, Thanks for taking back the FEMA money provided to flood victims in TN last May. That was super classy. Also a nice touch to sacrifice all the small towns along the Mississippi this spring. Keep up the good work. NOT.
