    Re: Feds move in on Nevada rancher's herd over illegal grazing

    Apparently since there are a bunch of ignorant uneducated people in this thread I need to say this again.

    The Homestead act of 1862 proves that the Federal Government legally owned the State of Nevada long before the Bundy's came to Nevada. The Homestead Act, enacted during the Civil War in 1862, provided that any adult citizen, or intended citizen, who had never borne arms against the U.S. government could claim 160 acres of surveyed government land.

    Welcome to OurDocuments.gov

    Todays Bundy's are are traitors to their own family and to this country like all secessionists and militia freaks. If the BUndy's want to raise range land cattle they should cowboy up and buy the acreage they need to do such a thing. Or they should move to an area that has Federal/public land that they can pay graving fees for the PRIVILEGE of grazing animals on. There exists plenty of land to do so. But the fact is that desert range land sucks 160 acres in more suited environment would plenty for their cattle operations. But they wont do that since that have made it abundantly clear that their issue is a political issue and the cattle are the means to their ends that they are exploiting. ANd they are not the first to use such tactics. Locally a rancher tried the same exact thing and failed. They claimed like the Bundy's a "private "possessory" property right that entitles them to use of the water and range for the purpose of raising livestock."

    Conclusion


    Plaintiffs do not now hold and have never held a vested private property right to graze cattle on federal public lands. At the time plaintiffs' predecessors began ranching, grazing on the public domain was a privilege tacitly permitted by the government by an implied license. This license was revocable at the government's pleasure and conferred no right in plaintiffs or their predecessors to graze a specific allotment of land.
    It is not disputed that the Diamond Bar and Laney allotments are located on national forest lands, where grazing is by permit only. Nor is it contested that plaintiffs grazed cattle on these allotments without a permit. Therefore, the district court acted properly in enjoining plaintiffs from further unauthorized grazing, in assessing unauthorized use fees, in directing removal of plaintiffs' cattle, and in finding plaintiffs in trespass of federal lands.

    This was not only about collecting a debt owed from past infractions. Bundy was actively and presently breaking the law in defiance of court orders and Federal law.
    How would you feel if your family had been respectfully paying the grazing fees and watched as a freeloader grazed his cattle next to yours without paying a penny, FOR 21 YEARS?

    Law breakers who are caught in the act are generally stopped by law enforcement.
    Really - were they there to serve a search warrant? Were they there to arrest him for non payment? What purpose other than a threat was law enforcement there for in your opinion?

    False equivocation as speeding tickets do not equate federal litigation (as you previously pointed out). At least use a better analogy.

    Government uses liens all the time for payments not made in all sorts of situations. The bottom line here was, the government was going to teach this guy a lesson and scare the **** out of him by sending armed feds - and when he didn't buckle under - they doubled down. When that happen, public support went to the little guy and the feds didn't want to start shooting American's over what is, cows eating grass. No politician especially Reid needed that. If the government wants their money, there were ways to do it other than armed Feds. They now look stupid and rightly so. The issue will be tied up in court for lots of years and Bundy will be in the ground before it's probably done.

    So tell me, what's the benefit of sending the cops out and camping out for weeks, stealing the guys cows as a petty method of payment, then having a stand off? Zero. While I appreciate the pro totalitarians in the liberal party applauding brown shirt methods, some people, like myself see it as stupid.

    If a US Marshal shows up at your doorstep, do you believe that person will be carrying flowers, or will they have a side arm?

    It's not selective either. It's only selective because you've been spoon fed with media and believe everything it says.

    Most ranchers, oil companies, and logging companies pay the leases they use, Clyde didn't. He might be one, or, there might be others who have not paid that we have no knowledge of.

    The same heavy handedness was used by the Bundy's and their use of Militia groups and their guns and threats.

    So, how is this helped if some tea party goober shoots a BLM employee who is doing their job?

    Nothing sychophantic, just trying to ensure that a deadbeat follows the law, this has been adjudicated in court, Bundy claims there is no Federal government, because it is convenient to his pocketbook. You bring up words like tyranical government...they have been letting this mooch slide for years, hardly tyranical. Bundy is guilty for any BLM person that gets injured, he caused this situation, he needs to be a man and pay his damned bills.

    Did they call the militia in? Can you link that part of the story?

    It's not my opinion but they were in the process of seizing his cattle when the thugs came out with their guns.

    The BLM was taking his cattle to stop him from breaking the law any further.
    As for a lien on his ranch ...the BLM was putting a "lien " on his cattle when the thugs came out with their guns.

    Hyperbolic twaddle that doesn't contribte to the argument at hand.
