    Peaceful resolution and continued freeloading?

    how peaceful was that sniper taking position to aim at the federal employee doing his job on behalf of the American public?
    expect the next step to be the attachment of bundy's ranch - rather than his cows - as the asset sold to collect the judgment ... with well armed federal marshals executing such attachment against the ranch
    let's then see who cowboys up
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    That should have been the first step, not after armed thugs surrounded him and tried to steal his cattle.

    Is that time imminent when said Government attempts to enforce law and act upon court designated legal positions?

    It seems to me this has become little more than an excuse for militant anti-establishment cowboys to display testosterone enflamed ball sacs.
    I just hope they are bright enough to avoid provoking the inevitable bloodshed stupidity would create.

    could you share with us where it was that the 'armed thugs surrounded him and tried to steal his cattle'

    i was of the impression that the BLM contractors rounded up the cattle then grazing on federal lands, and not the bundy ranch

    the federal policy in effect when i was a liquidator was to recover from the debtor's personal property (cattle in this instance) in an attempt to preserve their home, where possible (the bundy ranch)
    seems you are opposed to a policy which seeks to preserve a debtor's residence whenever possible
    by bundy's actions, such preservation of his home may now not be possible

    Sounds more like a squatter refusing to leave a foreclosed house to me.

    i can hear the rallying cry already:
    'tolerate our illegal freeloading'


    sounds so similar to 'no taxation without representation'. yes, expect many to rally to your call. maybe as many as two dozen. that should provide for a good revolutionary fight facepalm.gif

    You mean the Nevada association? That's the whole state, not the area specific to the Bundy episode. What trend do you see in the membership level of that association? I see a Reuters article corroborating "dwindling number of ranchers" and, probably more indicative, the highest beef prices in over a quarter-century partially attributed to a "dwindling number of cattle".
