Know weigh on that one either.

It's starting to sound like April 19 should become National Gun Cleaning Day.

Yes, this situation could get ugly fast. Wonder how accurate the thread mentioning an attack taking place is?

I haven’t seen a statement of support from the NV Cattlemen’s association either, which doesn’t give me confidence in Bundy.

I think the tea party and the militias are being used for chumps.

Bundy's mission is true.

His legal rationale is weak.

Not to say that many better legal theories couldn't be generated and prevail.

It will do the struggling Democrats good in the upcoming elections to paint the TEA party, conservatives and Militias as the core of the loco’s.

Hillary Clinton and Web Hubble were in charge of Waco. Janet was sent out shopping or some such, so the people at Waco wouldn’t think it was coming.

I think McVeigh probably picked that date as he had gone to
Waco as an observer and the disgust he felt at what the gov’t did there was part of his future decisions.

On the Hannity radio show someone said that Reid and his BLM buddy had arranged to have the area rearranged for the tortoise protection as a favor to someone, and that now there are so many tortoises they are euthanizing them.

According to Mark Levin, BLM killed about 1,000 of those turtles, because they were overrunning the area, which makes the Fed pretext and argument to remove Bundy's cattle legally absurd.

Some still brand but modern ranchers use ear tags, tattoos or even microchips. A lot of ranchers don’t like branding any more than the cattle. I have my grandfather’s irons on the wall.
Branding takes time and the burning hair and flesh really stinks, although I didn’t find it as bad as de-horning and nut-cutting.

I couldn’t believe how they were forcing people out of there homes to search, yelling at them and pointing weapons. Unbelievable that the people let them get by with it. They were looking for one man! Then it finally took an ordinary guy going out for a smoke to find him.

When I read about this earlier today, it crossed my mind that the Fedzilla might shut down mobile communications, exc... I was thinking that they (ranchers an supporters) should have some plain old school video cameras out there, film type cameras, and Ham radio.

They need some kind of alternative ways to communicate. Someone even posted Morse(sp?) code as a suggestion.

I wouldn't put it past the government at all, to try and shut Cell towers down, in order to do a raid.

Then again, if we had any Freakin actual Journalists in this country , who understood what their Constitutional role is- TO PROTECT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FROM TYRANNY BY ACTING AS A "CHECK" AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT-BY INFORMING THE CITIZENS OF ANY AND ALL ABUSES, MISDEEDS, AND VIOLATIONS OF CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS BY THE GOVERNMENT- None of this would have to happen.

The "Journalists" would be out there with Satellite trucks, protecting the people by telling the truth, not helping the JBT's terrorize the people by not reporting on it.

Sadly we have "Useful Idiot's" (To any liberal lurkers: look up this term.), not journalists.

Look at how the park rangers treated citizens during the gov’t shutdown. They “were just doing what they were told”. My guess, since I have worked with gov’t unions, is that they look at all taxpayers as the enemy if they are told to do whatever it takes or they might lose some of their already outrageous benefits.

"Some still brand but modern ranchers use ear tags"

Good Point. Doesn't the FDA or somebody require that each animal is uniquely ID'd in case of trouble so it can be traced back through the system?

I heard his interview with Mr. Bundy and he kept saying it was NV State land, but I was interpreting that as he thought it was in principle. A lot of FReepers have been arguing that it is Federal land and Mr. Bundy is wrong. I don’t agree with that even if it was federal land.

Has this been posted?

That is the strongest evidence for the States to make the Feds transfer the People's Lands to the States.

Sorry I don’t know. I was a summertime dilettante ranchhand many moons ago. Gramps would know but he passed on in ‘79. He raised polled Herefords. What you say sounds right though.

Armed Rangers were brought in from out of state by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to assist in security surrounding the Bundy Ranch, according to the family.

Stetsy Bundy Cox, Cliven’s daughter, told the Washington Free Beacon that some of the rangers had Oregon and California license plates.

“You know, some of these guys don’t even know why they’re here,” she said. “A few people have talked to them and they got called in here on an emergency feed and they didn’t know what it was for, it just said they had to be here.”

I actually went and talked to one, he was in the back, nobody was even talking to him. He didn’t say much,” she said. “He had a huge big gun on him, but he didn’t really even touch his gun.”

“I asked him, ‘What are you doing? Do you know what you’re doing? You’re stealing an old man’s cattle, his livelihood. He’s a poor man that doesn’t have anything,’” she said. “And I said, ‘You’re pushing baby cows’—I watched a baby cow not want to move and a helicopter swoop down and honk at him till he had to move.”

Cox said the Ranger said, “No, no, we don’t want that.”

“But I saw it,” she said.

“‘Well, well,’ and he goes, ‘I don’t even want to be here. Do you think my grandfather’s proud of me? You think I like this? You think this is fun for me?’”

“Then what are you doing here?” Cox asked him.

“He said, ‘It’s my job.’”

Remember Tianamen Square? All the troops firing on civilians and running over them with tanks and APCs were from remote provinces.

For the most part they couldn't even understand the local dialect.

My folks got tired of de-horning. They used what looked like an exercise lat pull-down bar. You slip it over the horn, twist and tighten the grips, like a copper tubing cutter. The animal’s in a chute with its head between bars. Not much fun for either party, lots of blood, and he switched to ‘polled’ (no horns) cattle.
I’ve noticed, in west OK at least, a lot of beef raisers have switched from Hereford to Angus. A little hardier maybe.

It’s not an easy life and I’m sure they could do w/o the “We’re from the government, and we’re here to help.” The only calluses these feds have is prolly on their trigger fingers.
They should go back to wherever they came from.
