It doesn't have to be  valid, it just has to be a  comparison. That's all that matters: That they can use that argument, no matter how fraudulent, to "poison the well" of discourse.

And obviously that's who Reid was referring to when he called them domestic terrorists. Not the armed nut jobs.

I am very quick in calling American citizens 'patriots,'" Heller said in an interview. "Maybe in this case, too quick."

If there were Scouts there as a troop, their leaders should be kicked out and the troop disbanded. Scouts aren't supposed to appear or be photographed at political rallies, and it is generous to call the Bundy Circus a political rally, except to conduct a flag ceremony.

Holy shiat. I think I can make it better and no less accurate. "As dr_blasto in WY continues to face an onslaught of really horny Jennifer Lawrences determined to sex him up..."

"As dr_blasto in WY continues to face an onslaught of cash and bearer-bond carrying Warren Buffets determined to give dr_blasto all of their wealth..."

I wonder what they would say about Leviticus 25:23-25? You know, the part that says "you can't own property, man" and that the sale of real estate is just a lease from God (who is the only true owner of the land) and the family that traditionally lived on that land, which had to be returned to the original owners at the end of each half century (Leviticus 25:13-16)?

Of course, I'm sure they would say that under the Homestead Act they are the original people who lived on the land (ignoring the fact that the ranch was sold to them 66 years ago by the Leavitt family), and even then that just means they get back the Virgin Valley ranch. I'm sure this will come as a surprise to plenty of Apache and Navajo people, who thought that historically they lived on the land, Then again, I doubt the Ancient Hebrews felt the need to consider this rule when dealing with members outside their tribe: the historical people who lived on the land was the first group from the tribe to set up shop.

This guy is just a shady operator. He's charged about 10 pct of what private grazing would cost, and he won't even pay that. It really helps the bottom line.

Sure, nobody wants to talk about how it so cheap to graze on federal land (even in the areas where the ranchers are allowed to put up fence and no trespassing signs on public land) that it disincentivises anyone from buying their own land. They also don't want to talk about how the dirt farmers here that have been around a very long time (unlike mr. bundy) were given their land through the homestead act.

So you've got free ranches, grazing so cheap that there is no reason to buy land to expand your herds--all subsidized through the US taxpayer. We go out of our way to ensure the estate taxes on what have become in some cases highly profitable oil business or land doesn't really impact the heirs.

We don't talk about how, as a group, these ranchers come across as the most entitled assholes around. We don't talk about the history of range wars that left people dead and led to the consolidation of multiple homesteads. We don't talk about the wholesale slaughter of sheep herds to make room for cattle barons. We don't talk about how the heirs of the banditti of the plains are now the shiatty legislators of a lot of the western states.

Certainly not the murder, theft and generally horrible behavior they've exhibited. These people are Christian Patriots! We would do well to honor them and elevate them in society.

MFAWG: the very real issue of laughably low grazing fees on BLM lands.


For the overwhelming majority of the country, low federal grazing fees probably ranks just below endangered mountain moths. A political machine representing half the government racing to support a bewildered, racist and deluded Posse Comitatus supporter is much more important.
