In many parts of the US for the price of a home in the city you can get 20,30,40 100 acres or more of land.

    Completely different issue. If the rent was raised before the original contract terms were up, you'd have the right to continue paying the same price as agreed in the original contract - you'd have no right to stop paying rent and could refuse signing a new contract until the previous one is made void.

    Your rights existed before you? What?

    No. Rights exist with or without you. Your rights exist when you exist.

    Seems to me that land is all of ours. That's why it sucks we are told when, where , how and how much to use it.

    Who did you think owned it?

    Then you should be pissed off that Bundy hasn't paid rent and that you had to pay extra for grass fed beef has been fed off the land we are the owners of.

    I don't believe that Bundy has ever paid any rent for the land that he has been illegally using.

    The guy is a total scofflaw and/or outlaw who I believe will eventually learn the hard way that disrespecting the law has consequences.

    Bundy didn't just wake up one mkrning and decide he wasn't going to pay fees any longer, he was intimidated by that constant noise of what he considered to be tyranny. That noise has only gotten louder for.us all.
    Can you be anymore melodramatic with your posts? Gimme a break "noise of tyranny"? Typical right wing bull****.

    No be didn't just wake up and do it, he's been breaking the law for 20 years! If you don't like a law, change it. Funny that other ranchers were paying this. Maybe you and bunch can bunk up and get the hell out of the country since you despise it so much.

    Yes and through the representatives THE PEOPLE elected these laws were made. Don't like it, change the law. Bundy is a freeloader.

    The facts of the case don't matter to these extremist folks.

    As I said in another thread it's not about the facts but the narrative.

    Salt of the earth rancher defies tyrannical federal government.

    Doesn't matter what happens with this case, they will not accept any information that would cause that narrative to shift.
