    They've moved it over to the left now...third news story from the bottom. Apparently, Fox is making it a little difficult to find this story by moving it around. Can't say I blame them.

    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.

    I had a feeling Bundy was going to say something outrageously stupid,anyone that hailed him as a hero should be raked over the coals.Having said that,the whole issue over his grazing cattle has always been for me about the way BLM handled the cattle round-up and not Bundy himself.

    Honestly, I didn't learn about this situation until about two weeks ago (got a lot of other things going on these days), but from what I do know Bundy claims that the federal land his cattle were grazing on use to belong to his family several generations ago, but the fed purchased the land and allow cattle rangers to graze their cattle on the land as long as they have a valid permit.

    The fed offered Bundy use of the land for a limited number of cattle, but he brought over more than the allot number of heads. The fed told him to reduce the number of cattle or leave and he refused. So, they rounded up his cattle and then all hell (nearly) broke loose.

    Does that about sum things up?

    Assuming I've got the account right, Bundy is in the wrong and is lucky all he's gotten out of the deal is a "Mexican stand-off" of sorts. As to his racist comments..."stupid is what stupid does".

    Re: Bundy questioned whether blacks were better off as slaves

    Partisan righties don't realize how easy they make this stuff sometimes.

    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."

    Bundy should of paid those fees no doubt,I don't think BLM needed to send in 200 heavily armed agents to round up his cattle at a cost greater than what he owed....

    Really scary-looking straw man. Good job.

    Think about it.
    Try to find the difference between the general and the specific. Here's a clue-deliberate ignorance doesn't offend me but deliberately ignorant people...

    This guy is welcome to spend some time as a slave and find out for himself. I'm sure there are parts of the world he could visit where that could happen for him.
