In any case, the other pics of government force at the scene are real...

    So, I suppose that now that you can dismiss one pic, you'll dismiss all, and stick with the lie that Bundy showed force first, right? Pfft.....

    It does help with creditablity if you claim pic are from the standoff and they really are. Actually, I just thought I had seen that pic before is the only reason I brought it up. I pretty much think the guy is a deadbeat anyway.

    Of course you do....That is the derogatory line of the progressive trash cheering the use of this sort of force against their own citizen neighbors over something as stupid as some fees....As for the pics, the one above it, is on the spot, and above and below that are also on site....So, on the whole the pics are accurate.

    The BLM evidently thought they needed the show of force because of Bundy's own words

    Now a showdown looms, one with a hint of possible violence.

    Officials say Bundy and his son are illegally running cattle in the 500,000-acre Gold Butte area, a habitat of the protected desert tortoise. In July, U.S. District Court Judge Lloyd George ruled that if Bundy did not remove his cattle by Aug. 23, they could be seized by the BLM.

    That hasn’t happened — yet — and the rancher insists his cattle aren’t going anywhere. He acknowledges that he keeps firearms at his ranch and has vowed to “do whatever it takes” to defend his animals from seizure.

    “I’ve got to protect my property,” Bundy said as Arden steered several cattle inside an elongated pen. “If people come to monkey with what’s mine, I’ll call the county sheriff. If that don’t work, I’ll gather my friends and kids and we’ll try to stop it. I abide by all state laws. But I abide by almost zero federal laws.”
    Interesting take on the situation by the local sheriff
    Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie visited the rancher last year but has resisted enforcing federal deadlines, declining to put his deputies in danger over a herd of cattle. Gillespie called Bundy in September with the names of a few lawyers to contact.
    Looks like Sheriff Gillespie thought Mr Bundy was a dangerous person.

    As others have noted, for an overbearing oppressive federal government agency, the BLM seems to have been extremely patient and careful about moving against Mr Bundy.

    Yes, a dangerous person....God forbid anyone should want to protect their property when the Sheriff, whom is tasked with that job, refuses to do it....So, if I get what you are saying here, We no longer have property rights?

    The next day, yes, but the left jumped the guns a little. This is all beside the point. This is not about Bundy. It is about the overuse of government power, SWAT Teams and inappropriate response.

    Better pay your taxes on time or a SWAT Team may arrive on your doorstep at 3am.
