    So like I said in other topics about this developing story, its gone beyond the unpaid fees for gazing on Federal land and turned into a question of whether or not we are going to allow an active insurgency to operate within this country.

    Also, is it more ironic or sad that these folks who claim to want freedom are acting in exactly the manner of an authoritarian?
    To answer the question you posed - while it is both ironic and sad it is revealing in that the naked right wing hatred of the American people and their government has been openly revealed and its proponents clearly exposed for the insane whackjobs they are and we have always known they were.

    So perhaps they did lots of people a favor in exposing their extremism in this manner.

    The answer is: No. The rest of your post is just you complaining because your self righteous stance on this issue is full of nonsense. You picked a freeloading rancher to stand behind and now his buddies are getting railed for being nothing but gun toting thugs. It must suck to not even know what it is you're supporting.

    We still have NO proof that any "checkpoints" were ever set up.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch....the militia are fighting each other now.

    Oathkeepers vs. Militiamen

    "....Vicious infighting among those remaining at the camp – estimated at less than a hundred – broke out a little more than two weeks after heavily armed militiamen forced federal agents to back down from a planned roundup of Bundy’s illegally grazing cattle from public lands. After vowing to stay on and protect Bundy – who then stumbled on the national stage with an outpouring of racist commentary – the remaining “Patriots,” who have been raising fear levels among local residents, have begun feuding. And it has been revealing.

    Apparently, someone within one of the major factions at the camp, the Oath Keepers, relayed word of the imminent drone attack to his leaders. Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes responded by pulling his people out of what they called “the kill zone” (the area the supposed drone would be striking). When the other militiamen learned that the Oath Keepers had pulled out, they were outraged.....

    Or it could be divine intervention. Isn't Area 51 around there somewhere?
