    Pot should be legal, but if I get busted with a pound of it (where I live), I'm in trouble. Claiming I don't believe in the government's right to prosecute me for it doesn't fly.
    Nonsense - that is the Obama justification for his "dreamy" immigration law enforcement and his desire to provide pardons/clemency for federal drug law convicts.

    And that's great, if they want to change the law, more power to them. However, it still doesn't justify the rancher's actions, or the actions of his militia buddies.

    Then you change the law. You don't break it and claim that you should be allowed to after the fact.

    Did you know that the state of Nevada charges $12 a head for grazing on their land?
    Mr. Bundy should get to pay this fee if he wants to, rather than the $1.35 a head fee from the BLM .

    That would also be Sen. Rubio's dream immigration bill wouldn't it?
    He still gets booed by the TEAs for the Senate bill he sponsored that the GOP House won't touch .

    Sometimes that's the only way to stop a huge monster money-eating machine like our federal government, especially when we have entities, organizations and even citizens who want to keep feeding it and supporting it's goals.

    Good point. They are willing to forgive MILLIONS of illegal immigrants for breaking the law.

    By threatening federal employees with firearms?

    The anti-government hysteria from so many here is just astounding. Yes, the government is quite often guilty of waste and overreach. This is not one of those times.

    They have taken control of 87% of Nevada land. That is not overreaching to you? Good Lord!

    Changing the law, or at least proposing to, is not ignoring the law.
