I'm not sure what any of this has to do with the Federal land on which Bundy has demanded free grazing rights for his cattle.

    There could be some link, but I don't see it. For example, according to some news reports, Bundy's ranch is 80 miles EAST of Las Vegas, but the solar development would be along the Nevada/CA border on the very southern tip of Nevada, or almost due south of Las Vegas.
    Your information is incorrect. In March of this year, Senator Harry Reid himself attended the solar project ground-breaking ceremony, turning a symbolic shovel of dirt, less than 35 miles from Bundy's ranch.

    This has nothing to do with cows and federal land. Those were simply the sparks that got the embers glowing. Al Jazeera, ever critical of America, did a great news documentary on the paramilitary evolution infecting, seemingly, every damn federal agency that exists. We're turning into a police state. It all grew out of "the war on drugs". That's when the U.S. Forest Service, the BLM, the DEA, and all the rest decided they needed to be black ops, and they needed arsenals bigger than a lot of countries on this planet, and they needed secret helicopter fleets, and machine guns, and drones, and, and...all kinds of cool stuff! And what the hell were they going to do with all that cool stuff? Go to war against you and me? Apparently so. It just happened in Nevada.

    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.

    There no, "a", in encyclopedic, speaking of encyclopedic ignorance.

    It's so archaic though, and it's one of those words in the English language that throws even the best spellers for a loop. I recently had occasion to use the word "archaeology" several times and misspelled it every time. Let's get rid of that unnecessary "a". Those little buggers are the land mines of the grammatical war zone.

    I like the extra "a" in the British spelling of "faeces."

    I see these citizens as wrongfully interfering with federal agents doing their job. This could be the beginning of a serious breakdown of law and order in this country if private armed citizens can get away with this type of behavior.

    They put a "u" in the word colour and airplane is spelled aeroplane as well.
    I have been called out for spelling complete as compleat the meanings are subtly different.

    EDIT: I read and re-read your entire post, and you clearly have no idea of the actual facts of this particular case.
    I did NOT say it was on his land, I said was on his Ranch.....in fact I exactly said "for allowing your own cattle to graze on your ranch or something asinine like that "

    You said you read and re-read my entire post....I think its time you take reading lessons Kobie.
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.
