Take your fake outrage and apply that energy to something positive.

If you can leave your ranch for two months to go play army at a bird refuge in Oregon…. you don’t do much.

These losers are unwanted by the locals. Glad they’re being arrested and shot.

She seems to be completely unaware of the circumstances leading up to the current situation and instead posits that men who wear cowboy hats every day must be playing dress up and acting out a game. What an uninformed fool.

Shame federal politicians http://www.bundysbuddies.com/

Claim its because of their “State Enabling Act”
https://www.americanprogress.org/wp-cont ent/uploads/2013/03/GoadLandsReclaimBrie f-1.pdf

Where (pg 9 above Idaho example);
“And the people of the state of Idaho do agree and declare that we forever
disclaim all right and title to the unappropriated public lands lying within the boundaries thereof ”

GETS TAKEN OUT OF ITS OBVIOUS CONTEXT

“And the people of the state of Idaho do agree and declare that we forever disclaim all right and title to the unappropriated public lands lying within the boundaries thereof, and to all lands lying within said limits owned or held by any Indians or Indian tribes;”

One of the goals of each of these, as well as any corporate or even charity operation, is to compete for more power and influence. It’s reasonable for families who have been ranching on public land since pre formation of these govt. agencies to be disappointed if not bitter. The guy that was killed, from what I understand has 11 kids and runs a construction company in Cedar City UT, hundreds of miles from Burns OR. Why he was so enthusiastic about leaving his responsibilities as a father for to join these ya-hoos is beyond me. Now we the people can look forward to supporting those kids.

The big question for me is what sort of government would you get from people willing to threaten you with guns at a town meeting? Who’d want to live like that?
The other myth these people try to further is that the “founding fathers added the 2nd Amendment to allow citizens to mount an armed challenge to the government. It was actually added because the US at that time did not have a standing army and depended on citizen militias organized by the states for “the common defense”. The current myth was foisted on the public by the drooling morons that run the NRA and used by the “gun press” to sell magazines. Now a man is dead and more could follow.
