    As I kind of resent the ranchers grazing cows on federal land they aren’t paying rent on, and therefore taking food out of the mouths of wild animals, notably horses, I feel that old urge to have a steak. Trespassers are still shot, right? And as they are being fed federal, public grass, and water, during a severe drought, I feel kind of like those cows should be fed to people on federal aid. Disabled veterans, for instance. Barbecue on the Mall, anyone?

    Clive Bundy wasn’t grazing his cattle on someone’s private property, he was grazing it on Nevada State property. The BLM overstepped their jurisdiction & Nevada has no interest in the land.

    Look on the bright side. They won’t have to mow or pay for fertilizer. Just make sure the cat and dog are in the house so they don’t get trampled like the wildlife.

    Then take him to court and place liens on his property. then work out a payment schedule.

    Don’t show up with 200 armed men and women and take his property without warrant.

    Yep. He’s just like people who cut their Christmas trees from the landscaping around the rec center. He should go to jail, he’s a thief. And his tea party supporters are even worse — I’ve seen the video of them threatening to shoot (!) federal law enforcement, and putting women out in front of themselves as human shields (because, you know, men are too important). You want to graze cattle? Easy. Pay the land owner. It’s called “Ranching.” If you don’t know how to ranch, get out of the business.

    Bundy is simply a liar and thief, ripping off the taxpayers, period. The guy who pointed the rifle at the BLM rangers should be quietly arrested for assault on federal officers, and do hard time for it. The “Sagebrush Rebels” were likewise thieves and liars, and this is just a new iteration of the same idiocy based on totally false premise. I only spent 32 years enforcing those laws and regulations that have been violated, but hey what would I know about it?

    The press coverage on this has been deplorable, to some extent on both sides, because the facts have meant nothing to these modern-day “news” sources. BTW: that includes NBC, ABC,CBS, Fox (totally faux), CNN, CNBC. It is this lack of journalistic integrity that has damaged the psyche of the American public, since the early 1980’s or even before. When people devour the product from the wrong end of the bull, it’s sad.

    ^Yes, Maddow did have a better take on the real situation, and she did point out the bad guys with guns and body armor were the Bundy backers, not the feds, but I said CNBC. The fact also is that few in the country, or on news channels actually know much about how government agencies really work, or can identify with more than IRS or Social Security as far as civilian agencies.

    Double p.s., note I was also referencing the “news”, not the commentary programs.

    I’m not “jumping” anywhere, much less to a “conclusion”.

    20 YEARS? Why? Which side is it that can’t prove their point?

    MACK “We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front. If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”
    Your hero.

    An aside regarding Nevada ranchers; back in the Reagan days it was a Nevada rancher who coined an excellent phrase regarding our “defense”, when he defined the MX missile (a failure) as the “Missile Expensive”. Today we have the failed F-22 and it’s failure (and even more expensive when it was supposed to be cheaper) F-35.

    Not every rancher is an idiot or “sovereign”- which are synonymous.
