The fee is quite reasonable being that its only 20% of the actual cost of upkeep of the land that you are using. The rest is born by the taxpayers. You refuse to pay that fee because you refuse to accept even the legal concept of a public park. You take your case to the courts and lose every time. Eventually, in this case after 20 years, the government with the backing of court judgements, seeks to collect the money you owe. You then get a bunch of armed militia types to show up and thwart a court order thus committing criminal contempt of court. The government eventually backs down because its not worth bloodshed, and you continue to freeload off the taxpayers.
    The BLM never had any intention of collecting the money.

    The American people have the right to keep and bear arms....even while protesting.

    : Seems to be a lot of that going around lately! Why do I get the feeling that they're disappointed because they haven't been able to impose martial law long before now - we are such a trial for them because we just won't play the way they thought we would? Maybe we're not sheeple after all, damn our worhless hides....

    Good Friday morning, apdst.

    That doesn't suggeset that it's right. I'm just curious if "terrorist" is the right wrong, especially with how reticent Reid and others on his side general are when using that term in other instances.
    To clarify "Domestic Terrorism"

    FBI — Terrorism Definition

    "Domestic terrorism" means activities with the following three characteristics:

    Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;
    Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and
    Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.

    At what point did they provide Bundy the oppurtunity to pay up? They didn't. They stole his cows and that's it. This is about strong arming Bundy off the property so Reid's political friends can use it.
