sigdiamond2000: I'm still mystified by the "take the battle to your baldness" cue-ball look that so many bald men in this country favor.

What is the thinking here? That you'll look less bald if you're totally bald?

I don't get it.

If I was bald, I'd rock the Friar Tuck/Hairy Horseshoe. It's both unique and timeless.


Unresolved Oedipal issues with Patrick Stewart, I'd guess.

Hey Bill, just a few Fair and Balanced pieces of FACT:

1. It's NOT Bundy's land.
2. His family has NOT been there "since 1870".

As for who was trying to "provoke a confrontation", does this asshat REALLY believe that the BLM would send people down there without some backup, and then not send more when you and your chucklehead fellow asshats stated that you were heading down there with your guns and 'itching for a fight'?

And wow, O'Reilly actually gave a decent interview there, for the most part. Are we all about to be called up for the Rapture, or something?

FlashHarry: can somebody explain to me why we're even talking about this? the guy was grazing his cattle on federal lands and not paying fees, right? he then threatened federal agents with deadly force when they came to deal with him.

why is this even an issue? why isn't he in jail for threatening federal officers with firearms?


These "patriot" militia types think they're the victim when people tell them to stop breaking the law. I don't know how someone gets their head so far up their arse, or how anyone could sympathize with them.

Take John Stokes, "a member of the Constitution Party and a property rights advocate and is believed to a link between the WiseUse and Militia Movements." Link. Learned about him while reading about the "Freedom County" movement that had one of its leaders die in the Washington mudslide.

These guys biatch about taxes and welfare, yet think they're entitled to everyone else's shiat. That's a real special type of scumery.

Stokes' claiming that a 32-acre easement for his two radio towers gave him actual ownership over 148 surrounding acres. That led to a lawsuit with the actual owners, which Stokes lost. On his radio show, Stokes accused the land's real owners of bank fraud and lying on an affadavit. They sued for defamation and won $3.8 milion in damages.

We're all painfully aware that your view on this is "claim that the BLM force was unnecessary while refusing to accept that it wasn't them that first brought weapons all in a really weird attempt to avoid saying - hey that Bundy guy seems like an ass because for some reason that's just too upsetting".

There's really no need to tell us twice a day anymore.

The only reason they weren't arrested is the police realized there would be a serious situation outside of their control if they started doing that.

Or maybe the officer in the middle realized the event had been caught on camera, and decided it was best to chill the f*ck out.

I'm not sure why you think the BLM officers are cut from any finer cloth than the local bully cops we read about routinely on fark. (Not saying all cops are power tripping bullies, but we all know they're out there.)

No. The armored police units did not show up until after Bundy and his thugs started armed resistance. Before that it was a few guys herding cattle into pens to await transport, presumably to auction.

They sent in cops dressed in "combat gear" due to statements that Bundy had made in the lead up to this whole thing. BLM guys started the cattle round up, Bundy was pissed and asked for militia help. Armed citizens came for a confrontation, and the BLM sent in their own armed guys to help protect/diffuse the situation.

They didn't send waves of cops out after them. The BLM started rounding up his cattle that he had illegally grazing on government land. Him and his sons attacked the BLM workers on government land. His sons were arrested and released. This news got out and nutcases supporting Bundy came out in droves. The local police sent out officers to keep the peace and the BLM sent out armed rangers to protect the workers that were being threatened by Bundy, his family and the armed nutcases that came out to support him. The Bundy family and their supporters are the ones who started the violence by attacking government employees who were rounding up cattle that were illegally grazing, and forced the government and local police to flood the area with police and rangers to keep the peace and protect the government workers.

However, the theory that Reid's putative involvement in the Bundy dispute was motivated by a desire to somehow profit from the building of a solar plant falls flat in the face of two basic facts: The site that ENN Mojave Energy was planning to buy in order to build a solar plant is nowhere near the public land Bundy has been disputing with the government, and ENN gave up the solar project and terminated its agreement to buy land to house it as far back as June 2013:

2014-04-23 06:01:19 PM  

JC22: My view is if the guy is breaking the law, then put a lien on his stuff. But to show up in that type of force is absolutely ridiculous and something else is going on and most likely it involves Reid and the solar farm from the Chinese.

And Reid needs to get his foot out of his mouth that was just in his @$$ and shut up about domestic terrorists because he has no idea what a domestic terrorist is.

And lastly Mr Reid. If you are going to spout off about enforcing the law and some citizen can't do what he's doing then you need to enforce all laws, especially those that are here ILLEGALLY and also those in that certain government run tax agency called the IRS that owe billion in back taxes.

Can't have it both ways jackass.


Let's see, "just put a lien of his stuff", "too much force for such a little fish", "Chinese solar farm", "Harry Reid", "illegal aliens", "IRS bad!".

Yup. You got them all. Good for you. You passed this week's GOP talking points quiz with a 100%.

JC22: Can't have it both ways jackass.



You've been duped into believing a fairy tale.  Bundy is a whacko who openly admits he doesn't recognize that the federal government exists and that he doesn't owe any grazing fees.  Who the hell gets to just ignore the fact that this country is a united republic in a bizarre scheme to avoid paying his/her fair share of taxes.

Then a group of well armed nut jobs show up and talk about putting their own women out front so they'll be killed by the federal government.  Why?  So they can get it on video.  Again, the logic of unsound minds.

You're siding with a bunch of very dangerous sociopaths.  These men aren't heroes caught up in a Democratic conspiracy, they're a bunch of free loaders trying to get a free ride on the backs of the America taxpayer.  They're living in a broken fantasy of ignoring laws they don't like.  They're no different than the "Freemen" who refuse to get drivers licenses, put license plates on their cars or pay taxes.  Yet, they still want to use those roads which someone else's tax dollars bought.  Maybe they should build their own roads to the local supermarket.

Look, I'm a pro-gun guy (note my Fark handle) but these idiots are the greatest threat to gun rights as anyone, anywhere, ever.  If people start taking up arms every time they want to get out of paying a god damn tax, we will very quickly see a constitutional amendment which nullifies the second amendment.  These extremist idiots are going to completely fark things for all of us.

Then people like you, who are too dumb to think for yourself and instead parrot contrived nonsense spewed by idiots selling advertising on radio and TV shows.  Limbaugh and Hannity both work for the same company and they have 100 million dollar contracts to spin up this sort of nonsense which a gullible portion of society eagerly chokes down.

If you value your rights, tell these morons to pay their farking grazing fees and stop acting like a group of 12 year olds.
