    With the cost of beef, I question why they buried the cows they shot instead of donating the meat to the food bank! I doubt they had a vet on hand to determine overall health, so who decided what cattle to shoot, and why! What a waste! I read that Texas is currently attempting to thin the herds of wild hogs - thousands of them are slated to be killed - but they are giving the meat to the local food banks. Too bad our government didn't have the same foresight!

    Greetings, apdst.

    No. For the hundredth time, I would have preferred they chose a better solution. As it is, you people stand behind a stupid decision to send in an army of federal agents at a cost FAR greater than ANYTHING they ould have collected, only to have those agent get turned out like bitches. I think its embarrassing as hell that so any people truly believe their best and really ONLY option was to do what they did and they FAILED even at that. This administration is so completely inept they cant handle a DEBT collection...and you think word leaders aren't laughing their asses off?

    This wasn't step 1. This was step 20, my friend.
    Step 20 was to allow yourself to be made to look like a bunch of inept clowns?

    Well played!!!

    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?
    Since posting on this topic I have CONSISTENTLY said I thought Bundy is a douchebag. My problem is and always has been the completely inept manner in which they decided it was time to do something, that they spent more in collecting the debt than they could possibly have collected, that THIS was the best solution they could come up with, and at the end of the day...they got punked.

    The guy seems like a step above Forrest Gump, it's kinda sad.
    Its tragic then that this administration has been so badly ****ed over by Forrest Gump. Speaks volumes...and kinda the point from the get-go.

    It is open season on feral hogs in Texas. you can take a rifle just about anywhere you want, and get yourself enough meat to feed your family for an entire year. Want to know what else is good? This meat hasn't been treated with growth hormones, steroids, antibiotics, or any other chemicals.

    And didn't I read that they admitted that the amount he owed was a little under $200,000 - and not the million $ they originally reported? Brilliant move all around! Hey, it's only our hard earned tax dollars being spent by DC, and they think money grows on trees, shrubbery, and berry bushes throughout the country, so what's the problem!
