    Civil discourse? Was it civil discourse to push a pregnant woman down? Was it civil discourse for the government to send as many armed people as they did? Which they did before the militia even got there.

    Did one person get shot? Did one person get harmed? No? Then it was peaceful. In case you've forgotten people not only have a right to protest but they also have a right to carry arms. So long as none of the militia men started firing off their guns they are well with in their rights.

    I'm sorry...but are these militia men there at Bundy's Ranch MLK? Gandhi? Occupy? There are many ways of protesting.

    Reid is the equivalent of a demented Kings fool, sent out to amuse everyone and make them laugh.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The only way liberal progressives agree with protests is if it is THEIR protests - anyone else doing it from a different point of view are "domestic terrorists". Tolerance is a one way street politically. If it's not the far left wings protest it's not tolerated in any way shape or form.

    The article was excellent, and as usual these days, I learned something I did not know prior to reading it! I love this site!

    One thing that disturbed me greatly was reading that the Bundy's were tased by Federal agents when they objected to having their cattle confiscated! TASED? WTH! Most of us would object to having our possessions taken from us by force, no matter who was doing it! That's called theft where I come from! Outrageous! I will be following this story to see how it is resolved!

    Happy Friday, humbolt.

    Morning, Pol. It is a Good Friday. The history behind this event is interesting, to say the least. State sovereignty can be undermined in limitless ways it seems. That the feds showed up with all that firepower to collect a debt is absurd. Whoever ordered that needs to be fired.

    Here is the one I didn't know...interesting.
    Again, in the case of the Bundys, the land in dispute was not purchased by the federal government, did not receive the consent of the Nevada State Legislature for sale to the feds and is not for military purposes. The fact that the federal government acquired it fraudulently in the first place, or that both political parties have ignored this part of the Constitution for over a hundred years, does not make federal confiscation now constitutional. Constitutionally Bundy has more right to be there than does the Bureau of Land Management. Still, his stand is not practical given our long-term departure from the document and to get back to the Constitution some may do jail time, as have others like Martin Luther King, Jr. Freedom has never been cheap.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
