    The post I responded to dealt with welfare. If the left is suddenly opposed to people living off the state that would certainly be news to me.

    I didn't defend this guy or his living off the backs of others. I simply pointed the hypocrisy of the left suddenly upset that someone would get something for nothing--that is the essence of their entire ideology.

    So eager to anoint this guy as the new poster boy for the "Guns, God, and Limited Government" club that they forgot that people who spend their lives wrangling cattle in the desert usually don't spend a lot of time worrying about things like political correctness and racial sensitivity. I figured that eventually the left would find a way to bring out the race card, I just didn't think it would be served up on a silver platter like this.

    The interesting part will be what comes next. There was such an uproar and such a groundswell of support for Mr. Bundy when the feds moved in the first time. I wonder what the level of support will be when they come back for round 2? Same guy, same situation, same "overreaction" by the government. Nothing is different except for the fact that now Mr. Bundy's feelings about Blacks have been made public. There's nothing illegal about being a bigot so I figure that they're kind of in a conundrum if all of the sudden he is deemed unworthy of the same defense as he was prior to these racial remarks... "Well, I guess it's okay for the feds to roust this guy now that we know that we can't use him for political gain."
    The militia nuts are a bunch racist pigs as well, they wont be going away from the guy. Hell they like him even more now.

    Perhaps because they didnt feel like it was an issue? I dont know...why dont you ask Clinton?

    This whole episode was an embarrassment from the get-go. The administration cant resolve something like this...AT ALL. Pathetic.

    Bundy's a classic example of how some people see things from within their own world view lumps everything together. He sees Black living the way they do in government housing and automatically assumes every Black person lives that way.

    I've never lived in the projects and my children have all worked since their early teens. Some people need to stick with what they know and never be given the opportunity to speak so freely to the public. Otherwise, their true "colors" come out and they say stupid stuff.
    Their true colors have always been out. It's just that their "code words" got a lot more obvious recently.

    Um...I guess worse, then? Is that what you wanted to hear?

    The guy seems like a step above Forrest Gump, it's kinda sad.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    I don't think Clinton would know, or that Bush would know, because I don't think they or any other President gets personally involved in these kind of situations. That's why we have department secretaries, regional managers, etc.

    BUT I suppose it would be possible that Obama could send in the FBI to mount a siege of Bundy's ranch, would that preferable? Personally I don't give a **** how many of those people die, I think we'd all be better off with more of them dead, but some law enforcement could be killed as well.

    Do you even agree with Bundy's position on grazing fees and the existence of the Federal Government? Or are you just upset with the inability to collect the debts for those fees?

    Would you have preferred an all out gun fight?
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.
