    Then elect leaders who'll sale it to the highest bidder. What should be and what IS are two different things. What should be and IS ... Is no relevant to the party who owes tax payers $1.1 million in back fees who a bunch of anti govt zealots think is some kind of hero. He's nothing but a crook. At least Robin Hood gave his loot to the masses this guy just wants it all for him. Screw him

    And BTW NV is not on the top 20 leach states. I don't know where it ranks, but it's below the top 20 so you aren't subsidizing much when it comes to BLM land. Our local FEDs are pretty good guys and haven't ever caused me any grief.

    I hoping that all the poorly educated extremists run to Nevada with their guns drawn. It would make for good entertainment.

    Fox News is saying that local "militias" are forming. They say this could be the next Waco.

    Militias? Is that true? If not Fox is putting the lives of the protesters at risk. I do not feel that it would be safe to join a protest in support of the cattle owners thanks to Fox News.

    Do not take children to any protest in support of the cattle owners. Fox News is reporting militias are forming. Best to keep children away from the whole thing in my opinion. If Fox is claiming that local militias are forming then it really could be a Waco event.

    Is what Fox reports true? Are local militias being formed? Militias? You would think that sort of thing would only happen in the USA.. Oh yeah. Well any normal western nation would not allow 'militias' to be formed. And instead of talking about it on the news the police would arrest any citizen trying to form a militia. You cant be having militias. Settle down Merica. Geez.

    Don't take my comments out of context. I was responding to a jerk who expects the rest of the country to pay for management of land that should belong to Nevada. How honest your federal people are out there irrelevant, I shouldn't be paying for your land management. It's your state, you pay for it. Sorry dude. And as far as that cattle rancher is concerned, that should be for a Nevada court to decide, and not the federal govt. So my statement still stands, the governor should tell the feds to leave or he'll run them off. 200 federals out there againt one rancher is ridiculous anyway.

    I missed the part where the land management outfit had a court order. They sued him right? And they have legal jurisdiction and all that?

    The federal govt needs to be taken down a few notches, and their jurisdiction reduced. If it weren't federal land in the first place, there wouldn't be any feds there.

    California should give some of its land to Texas. At least Texas would put it to good use, maybe create some jobs with it.

    Then have your representative vote against defense spending, that's all I can say. And good luck.

    Exactly what is says. If the power isnt delegate to the US, then its the peoples. The govt doesnt have the power to control land in such a way, thus according to the 10th, the people DO.

    To play devils advocate, the reason it needs to be paid for is to limit demand. Its the tragedy of the commons. If everyone has free access to something they will abuse it. If they are responsible for their own part, they will be responsible with it or suffer the consequences. An interesting question would be whether this rancher would be willing to purchase the land he needs for grazing. Will the govt let him, or do they forbid citizens from controling it?
