You seem confused about just who is grabbing whose land out here in the west. It's the states that are trying to grab the land...not the federal government. Here's the kicker.....the BLM charges a grazing fee of $1.35 per head of cattle...and the state of Nevada charges $12. Is that the state rights that Bundy is fighting for when he says he'll only pay grazing fees to the state? I don't think any rancher in his right mind would agree with Bundy on this issue. Bundy is just a free loading welfare queen.....nothing more...nothing less.
So how does charging less for grazing fees than any private rancher or state government translate into "abuse" and "KGB"?
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

Not advocating violence against these BLM and Forest Service workers, but these folks should spend more time doing something about the thousands of illegal pot growers operated by Mexican drug cartels than they do hassling ranchers, loggers, miners and general outdoor enthusiasts---- in my opinion.

Fighting forest fires takes a lot of money too, it's a drain on their resources and a big drain on the pocketbook.
I hope we don't experience wildfires as massive as the ones in the past few years, but they're still in a drought situation out west, and mother nature isn't cooperating weather wise.
