Carol and Cliven Bundy and the BLM … and UPDATE
I wanted to bring attention to a piece over at the Hyscience blog site which goes with one of my posts from yesterday:
Carol and Cliven Bundy and the BLM
Carol Bundy:The story is a lot about the cattle, but the bigger story is about our loss of freedom. They have come and taken over this whole corner of the county. They’ve taken over policing power, they’ve taken over our freedom, and they’re stealing cattle.
And our sheriff says he just doesn’t have authority, our governor says he doesn’t have authority, and we’re saying, why are we a state?The Free Beacon
There are some nine hundred cattle the BLM plans on taking out. Yesterday’s figure was over two hundred removed so far. If they were all Mr. Bundy’s that is nearly 50% of his inventory. Gone his livelihood, gone the jobs his ranch created. Just gone.
The cattle that survive the roundup will be sold by the BLM to pay his back debt owed because they couldn’t get their part of the job done – putting up the fences!
What is it with this government and the damn fences! Don’t build them and “they” will come be they terrorists, the cartel, illegals or cows – and the consequences are felt by/paid for by the people and certainly Mr. Bundy and his family.
A victory but in truth a small one. John Wayne is nowhere in sight.
BREAKING: 200+ “Militarized” Federal Police Surround Peaceful Rancher in Nevada

We’ve seen before at Ruby Ridge and Waco that the feds won’t hesitate to treat peaceful American citizens as hostile and confront them with full armed force. This is happening yet again in Clark County, Nevada.
For over twenty years now, a battle has raged between cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy has been using federal land to allow his cattle to graze, and the BLM has argued that this is “trespassing” because the land is protected and because Bundy has not paid required grazing fees.
The federal agency has now secured a court order to forcibly confiscate the cattle using heavy artillery.
