    Watch the entire, un-edited video; you might want to re-think your position…

    I watched and I don’t. I’m not big on welfare cheats, especially Big Cattle owning cheats of the We the People’s Federal government.

    Is anybody saying he’s a Democratic Party ‘plant’ yet? Give old Rush Murdoch Fox time and they’ll color him left of Barbara Boxer.

    What I got out of his statement was while slavery couldn’t break up black families, welfare did break up black families. Welfare has broken up a lot of other families besides black families, but essentially his comments were true.

    “Welfare has broken up a lot of other families”

    Not sure what you mean. Any supporting evidence?
    -
    Also, I assume this is your way of saying that ‘welfare’ is bad. Well, the pursuit of money has broken up families, does that mean you think that capitalism is bad?

    Excuse me, slavery broke up many black families, all to profit some rich white southerners. But if welfare breaks up a lot of other families, only blacks are to blame?
    And who set the system up? Who moved the jobs out of big cities? Who fled to mostly white suburbs?

    How was he set up? Even if someone asked him what he thought of blacks or welfare recipients, he is the one who said those things on camera.

    Guys, in this country, we are supposed to be able to speak our mind regardless of what others think about it. Like Obama said (and believe me I do NOT like what usually comes out of his mouth): "When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk.”

    Did slavery “break up families” …. duh. Can’t sell Mom and Dad and not the kids and not break up a family.

    However, replacing the “dad” (the traditional breadwinner) with a government check does not exactly place a high value on the family either.

    Be that as it may, right or wrong, being offended by his statements is non productive. He is an old guy set in the past and soon to pass on. So, in the words of a famous liberal, “What difference, at this time, does it make?”

    What matters is are we the people content with the BLM having and using excessive force to punish an individual citizen?

    Why does the federal government own the land?

    If they do indeed have a legitimate claim then what is the plan for the land?

    Do you (you are part owner after all if it is federal land) agree with the intended use?

    Will the use better serve the country than feeding cattle that will eventually find their way to your dinner table?

    If the argument has been going on for 20 plus years why is it so important to free the land now?

    Who will profit the most?

    As for the last question rest assured it will NOT be we the people.

    Unless we decided to sell off their children.

    The argument isn’t whether food stamps & TANF are a worse “dad” than a man with a ship in his hand. Slave families were broken up routinely. Marriages between slaves had no legal standing & one third of slave children grew up with one or both parents absent.

    Bundy suggested that owning human beings wasn’t so bad. I can’t imagine any reaction other than being outraged & offended. His worldview is morally bankrupt, IMO.

    The right liked Bundy’s defiance. But when he started speaking those secret un PC thoughts every righty harbours, they ran the other way.

    Slavery is never better than freedom. Even for “the negro.”

    While there is a kernel of truth in saying “welfare rules” have indeed caused “single mothers” to remain so, to collect benefits, Bundy, and others, overlook the fact that I’ve observed, a lot of those broken “families” are WHITE folks! It is a problem also that folks get cut off as soon as they get a minimal job that won’t support them in local cost of living, rather than “weaning” folks off as they raise themselves up. Those total freeloaders (like my brother-in-law) who won’t get training, or a job, SHOULD be cut off after a certain period, at least to the point where they HAVE to seek employment to get any aid. In some of our localities however, that IS problem, due to automation in industry, export of jobs, and the fact that the “1%” don’t really give a squat to actually improving the ENTIRE economic structure in the U.S..

    I think that the breakup of black families comes from the Section-8 welfare requirement that there cannot be a “man,” (adult male) live-in in the house. Such circumstance negates the welfare benefits; the idea behind that is that the male should be working to provide for the family. All to often, only the female works, and the “man” doesn’t do much at all except live off of the rental & EBT assistance provided the “needy” family. I know. Inglewood, CA.
