    Personally, I think that while maybe it may not have been the most eloquent way of expressing himself, Bundy is being honest about race in America. There's a lot of feigned outrage over this. Of course, the media's job is to manufacture content so as to cast him as the most evil SOB to walk the planet, I mean, my god? He defied Big Brother!!

    Perhaps I interpreted it incorrectly then.

    It seemed to make sense in context.

    Edit: See, from my perspective I see Bundy as an inarticulate fool who might be a racist (I'm not sure about the last because it might just be his foolish choice of words rather than racism).

    That's what I got from listening to the audio and reading a transcript someone posted earlier.

    Perhaps I'm giving him too much benefit of doubt.

    What the hell is he talking about? We had a better family life as slaves !!!!! Most of our family members were separated and sold to other plantations. And you guys on the right support this clown !!!
    Who sold them first? Oh, yea. Other africans. Not saying it was right or it was not a blemish on our nation, 150 some years ago. Context seems to escape you.

    The debt is up to a million dollars, its not exactly much to the entire Federal government but its not exactly chump change either for a single fairly unweathly person to ring up either. Also a lot of law involves costs which would outweigh the benefit, and sometimes thats a good point, however the extra cost in this case was brought about due to the "Patriot movement" guys showing up. Now its more than a issue of unpaid fees its an issue of whether or not it will become acceptable to use the threat of force, the use of human shields, and the like to avoid paying one's dues to the government for breaking the law. I mean its hard to put a monetary value on the damage that would be done if we simply let these people get away with this, its practically armed rebellion at this point.

    Now I don't know exactly why the local Sheriff, who by the way is a city not a Federal employee or even a state employee but who happened to be working with the Feds, decided it was too risky to continue holding this cattle but whats clear is that he thought that the risk was too great that it compelled law enforcement to retreat. If you as a criminal become enough of a threat that you can compel law enforcement to retreat, where you can match them force-to-force I think it almost always for the sake of the rule of law that you be brought down one way or another.

    Shoot what if this was a gang that had taken over several city blocks and managed to somehow amass enough firepower and manpower to compel the police to retreat? Would you be ok if the police just left them there as is?

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?
    And of course you have something to back up those numbers?
    The problem with people like you is there is no gray areas. Everything is black and white. An intelligent person with the ability to see all sides would consider that the Federal agents took the high road by not forcing a gun fight with a bunch of wanna be Rambos. Why are you defending such a welfare queen like bundy?
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    On my way out the door in about 15 minutes to head to Willis, TX, where I will be playing a private party at Blueberry Hill Ranch. There will be LOTS of barbecue there.

    He, like every American is free to voice his opinion. Don't like it then leave the country. If there is anyone out there that believe blacks trust whites despite all the white BS rhetoric about brotherhood and being color blind then you are simply lost and pathetic.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Darn you anyway! And here I am, stuck in NE Ohio, where BBQ's won't be held for two more months! It's just not fair, I tell you! We just can't seem to convince Old Man Winter to knock it off already with the snow and cold! Have fun tonight, and wave hi to my family in Friendswood on your way to Willis!
