Government gone wild.

Screw the government, sorry SOB's think they have the right to do what ever, cause any damage and not pay for it, but god help us for knicking a guardrail. I never kept up with this or really read what was going, one reason the government was involved. But also on the Bundy ranch the was a law and rule that listed and he failed to follow, so really both parties are at fault. IMHO

Turtles is a sorry excuse to kill other animals and a man's entire livlihood. Bull ****ing **** if you ask me.

I think both sides have really let this go much further then it needed to. There is reasonable question as to why the Federal Government needs to claim so much land as Federal Land and whether or not that impedes on the States Rights.

The BLM went crazy overboard killing off cattle for no reason other then they belonged to Bundy, yet Bundy could have just paid the damn fees to begin with. And the response is stupid, SWAT teams sent for a man who hasn't paid the Government their money...?

Bundy may have some valid arguments, but you'll NEVER get a Federal Judge to openly admit to agreeing with him, it would be career suicide. Harry Reid is right in that this just isn't going to go away, something will happen, whether Bundy pays the fees or the ranch gets shot up by the BLM.

Ever owe money to the IRS and not pay? They'll come after you, maybe not with a Swat Team, but they're coming, so the ***** in Bundy's corner.

I don't think the federal government has any right to collect fees from this land. They don't own it, the state does and the state should be the ones collecting fees from the Bundy's if any. The whole BLM is nothing but a government scam.
