    I agree the feds went overboard with this and I don't think it was political, I think it was trying to send a message and for THAT reason they are wrong. This should have been handled like any other tax or fee issue and that would not include going out in force like they did.
    That is simply not true, as evidenced by the current "dreamy" enfircement of immigration law.

    My position on bundy is not about cows it is about the feds coming in like they did in Waco and Ruby Ridge.

    It was federal land. Who should have come in to oust that freeloader?

    It wasn't that the feds came in, more in the manner they did.

    You quietly arrest the man, you don't come in with a small army.

    Of course. Why didn't I think of that? I'm sure that his militia would have quietly stood by while that happened, sure.
