Note please – this post was written early this morning and I was unable to get it up. There have been changes during this day. One thing I will mention – check out Drudge – he has nine links up at the top of his page. Thank you Drudge!
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.
