    Seems to be massive amounts of stupid all round:hmm:
    The fed departmart of land management behaving hilariously heavy handed.
    The farmer claiming " states rights" always the mark of an american idiot.
    Now the milita types have turned up nothing good will come of this.

    Looks like the Fed blinked first, compare this to the repression of Occupy Oakland

    Not always.
    the lesson seems to be when youve 300 mates with guns as opposed to 300 mates doing jazz hands, juggling and manically self flagellating over intersectional privilege they cant fuck you around so easy . Messrs Smith and Wesson make a more persuasive argument than Laurie Penny .

    Clive the Rancher really isn't it - same thing again to use someone to further their own political aims. The facts don't matter, just what he can do for the reps.

    Repub politicians who supported him suddenly realize they stepped in shit & are trying to scrape it off before the stink engulfs them. His "cause" will now just fade away.

    I think a number of the people who showed up with guns will end up in jail. I'm sure there's plenty of outstanding warrants out there, for one. Technically they could get them on armed insurrection. People have gone down with that charge for far less.

    The ironic thing is that Bundy doesn't recognize the federal government, but any time you see him talk he's got an American flag behind him. :facepalm:

    ^Yep. He's a bigger "welfare queen" than anyone who ever bought a steak with food stamps ever thought of being. Corporate welfare costs taxpayers many times more money than social safety nets ever did. If he really wants to cut back on welfare, he should give back all those subsidies granted him in the last farm bill.

    Thanks for the link. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the events on the time line.

    I've encountered stuff like that around here. It's nice to know this type of stupidity takes place south of the border too.
