Zeb Hesselgresser: Don't worry, the time will come when this sort of civil disobedience will be met with a swift and brutal response. Right now, it's just not politically expedient.Be patient, we'll get our boots on their throats soon enough.[rpatheoryofknowledge.files.wordpress.com image 260x346]
cannibalparrot: So you're saying we could get rid of them all at once?I'm really not seeing a downside here...
Muta: Someone from the FBI or BLM should fly a radio controlled airplane around the ranch near where the militia is hunkered down... just for shiats and grins.
Ambivalence: I am pretty sure Eric Holder doesn't have the authority to tell the DoD to do jack shiat.
Sgt Otter: The comments make Breitbart look like the Algonquin Round Table.My favorite was the dude with the Confederate Flag upset about the government killing Americans.
HeadLever: udhq: The second amendment does not grant anyone the right to use their guns to opt out of the rule of law.Never said it does. It does allow them to bear said arms. As I understand, no one has 'used' their guns yet. Feel free to provide me a place where a firearm has been fired at this point in the debacle.
Nina_Hartley's_Ass: They should be flying surveillance drones over them every hour all day and all night.
ikanreed: They are armed and dangerous criminals.
HeadLever: Killing them when not being actively threatened with deadly force is outside the government's rights.
Super_pope: I don't understand where you get the idea a bunch of people gathering to threaten violence against government agents would expect to not face consequences if we dropped a bomb on the first guys who did it.
Super_pope: Respond overwhelmingly the first time and any impression that this is a good idea will evaporate with the vaporized flesh of the bundy clan.
Muta: Mikey1969: Yeah, this is a legitimate way to portray the 'kicking the police dog' incident...[i.dailymail.co.uk image 634x462]Violent: An officer is seen firing a taser at Ammon Bundy as an aggressive police dog goes after himhttp://www.njnewsday.com/national/25053-senator-speaks-out-in-favor- of -nevada-rancher-as-militias-join-battle-with-federal-agents-accused-of -acting-like-they-re-in-tienanmen-square-in-fight-over-disputed-ranch- land.htmlRemember when conservatives were telling us that this was the proper way to handle people who didn't follow orders?[www.davidmcelroy.org image 460x386]

chasd00: Super_pope: ikanreed: but there's simply no need to lay the mushroom clouds on these clowns.Disagree. Permitting these guys to walk away (to my knowledge none of the "defenders" were arrested for this garbage will embolden more of these country-fried shiatkickers to think they can get away with this garbage if they have the guns (never mind that Cliven Bundy's crap will eventually be seized, because by then the news cycle will have passed him by).In a lot of ways it makes me think of 'Stand your ground.' A ton of idiots have just heard the buzzwords, know it was used in the Zimmerman case (even though it really wasn't, and didn't apply) and are now shooting people by surprise and going, "I felt threatened, I was standing my ground!"If idiots think this kind of stuff works, it will only get worse. Giving ANY impression that this crap could ever function for you will lead to morons (even stupider less controlled morons) doing it again until someone gets killed.Respond overwhelmingly the first time and any impression that this is a good idea will evaporate with the vaporized flesh of the bundy clan.you couldn't be more wrong. If there's a stand off and confrontation every militia will flock to the area and you'll end up with a Waco 10x situation with no choice but to take them all down. It would be a nightmare.
FlashHarry: are there even any farkers defending this moocher anymore?
ongbok: Are you kidding? Whoever did that would be charged Depraved Indifference Murder. You know as soon as those idiots see that thing a few of them will start taking shots at it and screaming about government drones coming. Then that will escalate into more people screaming about the government is coming and paranoidly shooting at whatever is moving. And in about 10 minutes you would have half of them dead. I wouldn't be surprised if the idiots set up booby traps around there also and people would get killed in those trying to escape the paranoia that was started by one prankster with a radio controlled airplane.
ikanreed: but there's simply no need to lay the mushroom clouds on these clowns.
ikanreed: This is why you're not in charge. Just saying.
ikanreed: offered a plea bargin that includes community service, and lose their rights to weapons forever
dopirt: TheBigJerk: Bundy gang sets up highway checkpoints.Oh Jeez, I hope this thing can be defused peacefully. Have Bundy's people crossed the line into felonious actions, or can they still just walk away?According to Horsford, his constituents say the militia have set up checkpoints where residents must prove they live in the area before they are allowed to pass and have set up a "persistent presence" along federal highways, and state and county roads. They also claim some have established an armed presence in the community.
mgshamster: We've already set precedent with Russia; just put a sanction on their bank accounts.
TheBigJerk: Bundy gang sets up highway checkpoints.
Notabunny: I thought they decided to put a lien on his cattle. That escalated quickly.
OutLawSuit: I'm all for this.Cows + Hellfire Missiles = Excellent BBQ
