Al Jazeera interviewed a Nevada state senator who was on site. They kept baiting her but she was sharp as a tack and knew exactly how to handle hostile media. The point she kept hammering home was the fact that the BLM, in all their fat ass glory, decided to show up with police dogs, flak jackets, and automatic weapons, to do what? To collect a disputed monetary debt! Since when does our federal government send out terror squads to collect a debt? That's what civil authorities and our courts are for. Those BLM Walter Mittys are lucky they got out of there alive. Al Jazeera interviewed two of the Idaho militiamen who stationed themselves as snipers on the bridge overlooking the unfolding drama. One was asked if he feared the consequences of an armed conflict with the US government. "No", he said. "We all came here prepared to die for our beliefs". He meant it. It sent a cold chill through me.
Ever in the forefront, at least lately, Colorado just passed a law yesterday that drastically limits bureaucratic capabilities for collecting outstanding debts. There are people here in Colorado who are incarcerated in state prisons because they couldn't come up with $1000 for a speeding ticket! Pueblo's newspaper cited one state prison where 7 people were incarcerated for no other reason than a monetary debt to some bureaucracy or other. So far, they've cost the taxpayer $178,000 and they owe a total of $20,000. To their credit, the Colorado Sheriff’s Association was almost 100% behind the bill. One state senator likened the situation to a Charles Dickens debtor's prison. "We eliminated debtor's prisons in this country almost 200 years ago...or at least we thought we did. This new bill will finish the job." Let's hope the rest of the country follows our example. Maybe laws like this will prevent some bureaucrat Rambo wannabe from sparking another Waco.

Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.
