They have resurrected the word “militia” to separate them from people like Occupy who also oppose the government. Miltia are the bad people. Occupy are the good people.
There wasn’t anything “legal” in that document. Most of the stuff were exaggerations, hyperbole, and easily justified actions by the crown. And it wasn’t even supported by most of the people! A DOI is an act of treason and rebellion, not a court document.
But we look at it like it was perfectly legit only because they won. Thank goodness they did.
They just got tired of a level of government that imposed on what they believed their rights were, just like this guy has.
Whether he paid his dues is not relevant here. What is relevant is that we are witnessing another militaristic crushing of a harmless family.
There are certainly zillions of ways to get the family to comply. Bringing in hundreds of armed agents, tanks, and helicopters is not one of them. Shutting down free speech is not one of them. Tasing innocent bystanders who pose no threat is not one of them. Although it hasn’t happened yet... shooting innocent people dead is not one of them.
It is the overkilling of harmless Americans that we’re done taking. They’ve brought it on themselves. If you haven’t seen it it’s b/c you watch CBS. Only.
...just sayin’... i’d like it
It’s simple, really. A lawless government will bring out those who want to protect their constitutional rights one way or the other.
I would like to quit paying taxes except for the military and the few items the Federal gov’t was given the right by the people to oversee. We gave the gov’t their rights, not the other way around.
BTTT for the most effective thing that could happen to ALL those gubmint Bozos.\Visit to their homes......Peaceful that is..
“Would like to see home addresses of these agents and their bosses posted.”
I question that. I don’t think these militia movements give a crap about the media or what it says.
Yes absolutely peaceful. Just like the agents are being peaceful at the ranch.
Would encourage accountability, no?
The money statement is this:
The dispute between Bundy and the federal government dates to 1993, when land managers cited concern for the federally protected tortoise and capped his herd at 150 animals on a 250-square-mile rangeland allotment. Officials later revoked Bundys grazing rights completely.
To me, I now think I know what has been going on. At first I thought, this guy deserves this because he stopped paying his BLM grazing rights money in 1993.
But now we see a rancher, who had 900 head of cattle being forced by the government to cut his herd to 150, which would put most ranchers of this size operations OUT OF BUSINESS for a friggin' turtle.
I hope you and other conservatives can take another look at this, seriously. I thought Bundy was wrong (not to pay his grazing fees) but now I see beyond that and had an epiphany. THAT is what this is all about. A turtle.
The daughter has spoken:
THE BUNDY DAUGHTER SPEAKS OUT ON GOVERNMENT TERRORISM AGAINST HER FAMILY! (Nevada Rancher)
Not meaning to be a wet blanket....but I’ll believe 5000 when I see 5000.
If 5000 armed militiamen showed up, they’d call out the National Guard.
“The family had cattle grazing on the land before the BLM took it.
The BLM didn’t take it. It already belonged to the U.S.
No, the Bundy ranch was composed of 150 acres which they owned and more acreage that they grazed on. This is a common configuration out West. The US government has owned the land since Nevada became a state.
The US government gets to make the rules on how to use US Government land. The date of when the administrative / management arm was created is irrelevant. BLM does not own the land the US Government does.
“But now we see a rancher, who had 900 head of cattle being forced by the government to cut his herd to 150, which would put most ranchers of this size operations OUT OF BUSINESS for a friggin’ turtle.”
I disagree. It is the long established pattern of the BLM to invent such things as supposed endangerment to a critter in order to steal land from private citizens.
The turtle was never anything other than a tool.
No, I don't. And I have been saying that for a long time.
The problem now is that a real confrontation is very late in coming. Giving the thugs and their masters in DC a sense that the strength of will of the people just isn't there, i.e. resistance is merely bluffing. The result being that the Feds will not back down from a confrontation, which may have been the result had this happened a long time ago, as it should have.
I’m saying he is a squatter because the land belongs to the US Government and he did not pay his grazing fees.
Hey Gritty, remember Klamath Falls and all the rest of this kind of stuff? PING!!!
