State Police Interrupt a Gold Mining Operation in Oregon!
Our mining claim neighbors called the Cops! People living on the other side of the river where our mining claim is and not liking our mining, called the cops. It appears our neighbors just did not want their liberal utopia disturbed so they call the cops to harass us. The police were very cool as I knew one of them from checking our permits on another river couple months earlier and an Oregon DEQ meeting he showed up at. The rude lady yells to at from other side of river you need a permit to do that...we had them of course. She also told cops we were disrespecful and rude to her...which was totally false. She made up her own narrative about what was happening to justify her being annoyed. Liberal tactic # 3, change the narrative or just plain lie!
This is the short version of the video, filmed on the Applegate River in Oregon while we were LEGALLY GOLD MINING!
In the video, it is a continuous video, shot on my GoPro camera that I was wearing on my head. The video shows me mining and moving around with no editing to show what actually goes on while mining. Then my buddy is helping me move rocks while I'm using a sub-surface dredge...then the cops show up , and I tell him is where the action starts.
UPDATE Jan 1st, 2015: In response to some of the comments saying we are uneducated, rednecks and other stuff...the guys in the video are as follows. One is a millionaire CPA, another a self employed business owner, two others are also self employed and owns a body shop and the other an internet marketer and freelance videographer, and lastly one is the son of the CPA guy and currently in college.
Oregon Mining Law:
Next time this happens, I will ask the State Police to cite the offending people who disrupt our mining operation based on this Oregon Mining Law:
ORS 517.133 Interfering with a mining operation. (1) As used in this section, lawful mining operation means any small scale mining operation that is in full compliance with state and federal laws.
(2) A person commits the crime of interfering with a mining operation if the person intentionally:
(a) Interferes with a lawful mining operation; or
(b) Stops, or causes to be stopped, a lawful mining operation.
(3) Interfering with a mining operation is a Class C misdemeanor. [1999 c.354 §6]

A billionaire, in countries that use the short scale number naming system, is a person with a net worth of at least one billion (1,000,000,000) units of a given currency, usually major currencies such as the United States dollar, the euro, or the pound sterling. Forbes magazine updates a complete global list of known U.S. dollar billionaires every year.
According to the Forbes report released in March 2013, there are currently 1,426 U.S. dollar billionaires worldwide from 66 countries, boasting a combined net worth of $5.4 trillion, which is more than the combined GDP of 152 countries. The United States has the largest number of billionaires of any country, with 442 as of 2013, while China and Russia are home to 122 and 110 billionaires respectively. Among U.S. billionaires, the average age is 66 years.
A billionaire is a person who has a net worth of at least one billion units of a currency.
Billionaire(s) also may refer to:

1,000,000,000 (one billion, short scale; one thousand million or milliard, long scale) is the natural number following 999,999,999 and preceding 1,000,000,001.
In scientific notation, it is written as 1 × 109.
Previously in British English (but not in American English), the word billion referred to a million millions (1,000,000,000,000). However, this is no longer the case, and the word has been used unambiguously to mean one thousand million (1,000,000,000) for some time. The alternative term one thousand million is rare and is used primarily to ease understanding among non-native speakers of English, as many other languages use words similar to billion (e.g. Spanish billón) to mean one trillion (1,000,000,000,000 or a million millions).
In the South Asian numbering system, it is known as 100 crore or 1 arab.
The term milliard can also be used to refer to 1,000,000,000; though milliard is very seldom used in English, variations on this name often appear in other languages (e.g. Hungarian (Magyar) milliárd, Indonesian miliar, Polish miliard, Danish milliard, Spanish millardo, French milliard, Italian miliardo, German Milliarde, Hebrew מיליארד, Finnish miljardi, Dutch miljard, Serbo-Croatian milijarda , Russian миллиард, Czech miliarda, Arabic مليار, Romanian miliard, Swedish miljard Norwegian milliard).
The SI prefix giga indicates 1,000,000,000 times the base unit.
See Orders of magnitude (numbers) for larger numbers; and long and short scales.
The facts below give a sense of how large 1,000,000,000 (109) is in the context of time according to current scientific evidence:
109 seconds is 114 days short of 32 calendar years (≈ 31.7 years).
About 109 minutes ago, the Roman Empire was flourishing and Christianity was emerging. (109 minutes is roughly 1,900 years.)
About 109 hours ago, modern human beings and their ancestors were living in the Stone Age (more precisely, the Middle Paleolithic). (109 hours is roughly 114,000 years.)
About 109 days ago, Australopithecus, an ape-like creature related to an ancestor of modern humans, roamed the African savannas. (109 days is roughly 2.7 million years.)
About 109 months ago, dinosaurs walked the Earth during the late Cretaceous. (109 months is roughly 82 million years.)
About 109 years—a gigaannus—ago, the first multicellular eukaryotes appeared on Earth.
The universe is currently thought to be about 13.8 × 109 years old.
In terms of distance:
109 inches is 15,783 miles (25,400 km), more than halfway around the world and thus sufficient to reach any point on the globe from any other point.
109 metres (called a gigameter) is almost three times the distance from the Earth to the Moon.
109 kilometres is over six times the distance from the Earth to the Sun.
In terms of finance:
The possession of assets with total value of 109 United States dollars would place a person among the world's wealthiest individuals.
As visualized in a work by artist Michael Marcovici, this amount of money in stacks of hundred-dollar bills can fit on twelve wrapped pallets.
In terms of area:
A billion square inches would be a square about one half mile on a side.
A piece of finely woven bed sheet cloth that contained a billion holes would measure about 500 square feet (46 m2), large enough to cover a moderate sized apartment.
In terms of volume:
