Publikwerks: doglover: Publikwerks: people like myself don't want anyone killed, but we also think that if you take up arms against this country, that the government have every right to curb stomp you, especially if you're wrong.

May I ask two serious questions? If it gets too personal don't answer me and if you want to disagree with anything I've posted that's okay but:

Q1: Were you raised in one of the original 13?

Q2: If not, which state do you consider "home"?

1.Kinda - Maine
2. Maine

I am a direct decedent of William Bradford, governor of Plymouth Colony


Okay, cool beans.

I was just curious.

Having grown up in Appalachia, my opinion of the US government is very similar to one the Picts might have had of the Romans, but with a lot less animosity. There's way too many instances of corrupt officials trying to oppress honest citizens to blindly follow where "Old Glory" leads. At the same time, I can't find a better country than the IDEAL put forth in the Constitution.

In this case in particular: Bundy's wrong on many levels and needs stopped. However the women willing to get in front of their men to prove their retarded point is inspiring to me. I wouldn't come within earshot of a three letter agency for cows, let alone ride their goons' crosshairs. As far as I'm concerned, Bundy should just lose ownership of his cows if they graze on public land. The police should come in, take 'em, and steak 'em. But I have to give mad props to the militia people for realizing they're an ant fighting a giant, ass kicking boot and adopting an actual strategy as opposed to some symbolic bullshiat.

Mrbogey: Except that's not the case. Bundy wants to pay his money. He just won't pay it to BLM. He wants the govt to stop using his money against his interests.


Yeah, well, guess what? If I pay my rent to my dentist because I think my landlord's an asshole, HE CAN STILL EVICT ME.

Danger Mouse: However the Feds sending in armed rangers, helicopters and seizing the cattle seemed a bit of overreach, no? Esp. so when they had no one to take the cattle and it looked like the cattle would be harmed.


They seized cattle that was on their lands. If I park my car on your front lawn, am I allowed to come and threaten to shoot you/the tow truck if you have it towed?

For the record I'd like to state that I'm NOT for Occupy supporters going out armed and acting badly like these hypocrites are, I was just expressing my frustration over what I perceive to be the coddling and enabling of truly bad behavior while violently cracking down on legitimate protest.

TuteTibiImperes: Truther: TuteTibiImperes: fusillade762: The Blaze, the conservative news site affiliated with Glenn Beck, flagged the comments made Monday by Richard Mack

So this is the oh-so-credible nugget we're going to launch another Bundy thread with?

Are the chicks in question at least hot?

The Blaze is usually pretty suspect when it comes to accuracy of reporting, but if they're going to call out a conservative group for being a bunch of calculating cowards, I'll tend to believe them.  It's against their agenda to make the Bundy folks look bad, so I can't see any reason why they'd make that up.

The photos from the standoff day seemed to have a lot of women and children around, which is the only reason why I think the BLM made the right choice to stand down.  It would have been bad press if some unarmed civilians were killed.  If it was just the crazy militia dudes and gun nuts standing around, I would have been all for the police rolling in and showing those yahoos how little their precious 2nd amendment rights will do for them when faced with an organized armed government response.

For now, the BLM should just attach a lien on the ranch for the unpaid grazing fees, foreclose on the property when he fails to pay, and throw him out on his ass unceremoniously.

This is EXACTLY what 2nd Amendment Rights advocates are worried about - tyrants that say "Showing those yahoos how little their precious 2nd amendment rights will do for them when faced with an organized government response"

I am sure the scary part about what you said is that you have no clue why it's disturbing to those who support the very right you would happily take away from them.

Anyone who seriously considers using firepower against the US government because the government is legally and rightfully executing its authority shouldn't be permitted to own a gun.

The NSA should track down everyone shown pointing guns at the BLM agents from the photos and charge them all with terrorism.


Lucky for us you don't get to decide who is allowed to posses firearms.

/in this case, I don't think threatening federal officials with guns was smart
//but one of the reasons the founding fathers wanted the right to bear arms was to prevent the government from becoming tyrannical
///these folks believe that the government was being tyrannical with the excessive show of force

If they've been grazing there that long, shouldn't they have put in a claim on the land? Or bought it? So basically they've been grazing on land they don't own for generations?

Prank Call of Cthulhu: doglover: Prank Call of Cthulhu: The Muthaship: As Sun Tzu said, "Avoid what is strong, attack what is weak".

Of course, Sun Tzu also said crap like, "Generally, operations of war require one thousand fast four-horse chariots, one thousand four-horse wagons covered in leather, and one hundred thousand mailed troops," so what does he know?

War hasn't actually changed at all in the fundamentals. Be it ants, chimps, or humans in any epoch, the fundamentals remain the same. That's why Starcraft, the US military, and the Mongols all use the Zerg Rush.

My (off topic) point is that I'm tired of people breaking out Sun Tzu quotes. About half of what he said is pretty reasonable, but patently obvious stuff ("Move by stealth! Disguise your intentions! Occupy the high ground!") and the other half is just random crap like how many ox carts equal one archer or whatever. Whenever I see a Sun Tzu quote, or someone pulling out the tired Clausewitz "war is the continuation of politics by other means," I've got a very strong "stopped reading there" inclination.

Even before the BLM existed the land was still owned by the Government. Are you saying that the Government isn't allowed to change the rules for using their own land?
 
2014-04-15 09:27:45 AM  

Fissile: neomunk: Actually, he's got a slice of a point in there buried under all that stupid. If Occupy supporters had come out armed and threatening to kill the cops that were confronting them maybe they would have been given a modicum of respect by the people who were so ready to crush them with violence.

Are you serious?  Letting cows shiat all over the desert is one thing, farking with Goldman Sachs is on an entirely different level.


Getting occupiers to carry arms in a situation where they may be killed for it isn't going to happen.  Or is it?  How many would show up?  The people in Nevada showed up and pointed guns right back at the jack boots.  I'm impressed, even if the government is going to come back and kill the rancher's entire family while they sleep.  I sympathize with the guy's argument the federal government lost that open land when Nevada became a state, and I sympathize with the broader argument the federal government should just fark off once in a while and worry about the border or something.  But I'd just pay the buck or so per head even if I thought it was bull.

Here's what gets me - I don't have a problem with protesting. I have no problem with taking the government to task for perceived wrongs.

I have issue with 1. Threatening to kill federal officers for taking cows. 2. Planning on making a massacre scene for pr purposes.

We have a system in place for dealing with government overreach. Yes, armed rebellion can be part of it, but it should be the last step. He hasn't availed himself of it. He hasn't gone to court, hasn't argued his case in front of a judge or a jury of his peers. He has made no effort to right this, because I think he knows he's wrong.
 
2014-04-15 09:28:27 AM  
Fortunately, the government's "shoot first, ask questions later" style of management has mostly ended with the Iraq debacle.  No, we don't want to see heavy handedness and needless death because the 24-hour news media is too impatient to let the situation work itself out peaceably over time.   The gov't is simply biding its time, waiting for the militia types to get bored and hungry and then leave.  Oh, there will still be a few hardcore types left but in the meantime, let's let due process do the work to resolve this in the way a civilized society should: get liens, injunctions and writs to cut off this loon's access to electricity, internet, phone, water, fuel, food and deliveries of all kinds.  You wanna be an sovereign island? good luck with that.
 
2014-04-15 09:28:33 AM  

doglover: ScaryBottles: doglover: nd quite frankly anyone who's never fought a woman doesn't even know the meaning of courage.
So do you fight women often?

No. But I read a lot. It saves me the trouble of dying every few minutes to learn "What happens when...?"

Historically, women that DO get into combat shame the men not in prowess but in courage and/or ruthlessness. The Comanche used to let their women torture prisoners. They were especially fond of cutting off noses and slow roasting. By contrast, in WW2, oftentimes men would give their enemies the chance to surrender BEFORE the flamethrowers were deployed, and they would routinely shoot enemy combatants with fatal amounts of napalm on their bodies for mercy's sake.


When bouncing, the worst fights to break up were when women were involved.

Men? We have off switches. We have been inculcated with social dominance cues most of our lives, and we play by a particular set of rules. Mostly. And when those rules are broken, there's a fairly predictable set of responses to the breaking of those rules, which are likewise set up by years of conditioning. Women? They don't have those same cues. Women fighting, it's a whole different thing, because where a man will see he's beat, and settle down, a woman will get more and more desperate, and that's natural, but it's absolutely no fun to deal with on the floor. Where a man will stand down, a woman will ramp things up. When stepping in to break up a fight with women, you also have to deal with menfolk who suddenly get courage to "stand up" for their ladies, where they weren't doing jack or sh*t to stop the fight in the first place, no matter if it was threatening to escalate, and that brought its own headaches.

LordJiro: Mrbogey: The best part of all of this is watching the "99%" Occupy supporters ready to kill someone who won't pay money to a group of select folks who used the past fees to run the people off their land.And the Left in America wonders why Right wingers want guns. All their talk of peace and human rights is akin to smiling at and sweet talking a dog till you get a big enough rock to smash its head in.

Except the land in question isn't 'their' land. It's the US Government's land. You're cheering for an asshole who decided to stop paying rent. A deadbeat.


Technically this all Native American land and we should be paying THEM rent.
But I digress. The government makes up whatever rules they want and act like absolute jerks most of the time. His family has been on that land for generations. Then the feds come along and start tacking on fees and screwing with them. I wouldn't feel particularly cooperative either.

doglover: Abuse Liability: I just take offense to your stereotyping and your glaring inability to see these women as anything but meat shields.

Exactly. They might be retards, but their balls are bigger than anyone in this threads. They CHOSE to be retarded and back up this crazy endeavor to protect a horrible man and his stupid fight that's gone on for 20 years now.

If they choose to be human shields, that's laudable, even if they're on the wrong side of the issue. They're taking the path of Gandhi and the Buddha, in a way. I certainly wouldn't even lift my littlest finger to help Bundy or his coos, let alone risk my life by getting in a crossfire zone.

And, don't forget, it's worked so far. The BLT actually backed off.


To be fair, it is hard for the wimmin to make a sandwich unless they are in the kitchen. These guys using them as shields can't get their BLT's. Those ferocious sandwiches laden with pig, lettuce, tomato, and mayo, between two slices of freedom bread. Sad really. I know I like a good BLT myself. Well, unless they follow behind the wimmin folk into the kitchen to let them make their glorious freedom sandwiches.

Conservatives used to joke about men hiding behind wimmin's skirts. Something, something, cowards? I mean, when we have a guy we want to bomb and they start using human shields (in particular women and children) we start accusing them of various cowardly things.

So, how are these cowards any different than Saddam really? Bundy is taking land he doesn't have permission to and extracting a resource from it, grass in this case. When threatened with superior firepower, he puts the wimmin and chilldrun up front so they can take bullets for the 2nd amendment tough guys, and generate bad press. No different really than a 2nd or 3rd world dictator that has convinced his people that America is the Great Satan.
 
2014-04-15 09:32:25 AM  

notto: Danger Mouse: .  From what i've read Bundy seems to have the local support (as well as the support of milita's from other States).

That's doesn't make him right.


No it doesn't, maybe I'm missing something here, being on the east coast and not having a good sense of farmers rights or practices. Because,  yea, if he didn't pay his grazing fee  then sure, what the fark is his beef? Since these lands cross over state boundries I could see it being in the BLM arena.   But then again, why are his neighbors and fellow ranchers sticking up for him?

Well, if they're going to be met with armed militia when they're trying to enforce grazing fees, yes, they apparently do need an armed presence.
 
2014-04-15 09:33:00 AM  

Mrbogey: notto: argument against Bundy is very consistent with the Occupy arguments against banks.  Bundy wants to make the risk public by grazing public lands without paying fees or without limits or oversight while making the profits private.  You are paying for the services this well off businessman is using without seeing any of the profits

Except that's not the case. Bundy wants to pay his money. He just won't pay it to BLM. He wants the govt to stop using his money against his interests.

When Occupy was defended for taking over public land, the response was "that's what civil disobedience is". Yet here we are with the same folks outraged that someone is breaking the rules until the rules treat him fairly.


If he does not want to pay it to who it is due who does he want to pay it too? Saying you want to pay your bills, but then claiming you dont owe the bill is not the same thing as wanting to pay your bills....It does not matter if it is "against his interest", he owes the money, stop being a deadbeat. My electric company constantly uses my money against my interest, but I am still required to pay them or I dont get electricity...

That is because all they did was protest. They did not claim the land was theirs to use indefinitely and threaten to kill people who would try to stop them. the OWS also did not break many laws, unlike this guy.

Actually he lost 2 court cases over this.  So he tried to take them to court and the courts have twice said no you have to pay your bills so he then decides armed is better.

What gets me is these people have no problesm firing on jackbooted thugs that are just doing their jobs.  They have families, bills, etc that they need a job and yet everyone is happy to gun them done because of "evil" government when the people they are so scared of will never be outside of a heavily armed building.

But then again, why are his neighbors and fellow ranchers sticking up for him?


They aren't?

The folks that were sticking up for him were anti-government militia groups. Not even the ranchers association is sticking up for him. (Which should tell you how in the wrong he is.)

ScaryBottles: doglover: nd quite frankly anyone who's never fought a woman doesn't even know the meaning of courage.
So do you fight women often?


I've been known to punch women on occasion.  But then, they were kickboxers and got to punch (and kick) back.  So I'm not sure that that counts.

I'm not sure the people sticking up for him are his fellow ranchers and neighbors.  In the east, you would call those sticking up for him carpetbaggers.

someonelse: I heard this morning that there's a beef shortage thanks to the polar vortex and the booming market overseas. The feds should confiscate this welfare cheat's cattle, and sell them to pay for the inconvenience he's caused.


That's what I'm thinking. He says that each cow is worth $1000, and he owes around a million, seems like a good way to start that off.
