They pay fees...ranchers and oil companies, pay fees to the Federal Govt. as for Mr Bundy, his family has been there since 1870, long before many American families emigrated here. Exactly why should he pay fees for land he has been grazing on for 143 years, in scrub brush no one gives a rats rear end about? This is just another example of the Federal govt getting in the pocket of productive citizens. There used to be 53 ranching families in the are, now it's down to his, due to these exorbitant fees. Have you checked the price of beef at the store? There is an economic coincidence between LESS RANCHERS and Higher Prices.
The government, and Politicans and Adminsitrators routinely flaunt the law and they wonder when citizens say enough? We have immigration laws that this Administration has said it will not enforce. Charlie Rangel, he of the House way s and means committee that writes lax law, decided he would not report his taxes accurately.Ditto fo Tsy Secretary Tim Geithner, head of the IRS , who also did not lawfully report his taxes. the thugs who intimidated voters in Philadelphia got a pass. Lois Lerner appears to at least be getting cover from the Feds, Obamacare was rammed down our throats with funny business in Nebraska and Louisiana and now, the Executive, the guy who is supposed to execute laws, unilaterally changes them at his whim.. .Mr Bundys family has been on this land since the 1870s and now, the BLM, created in the 1990s, seeks to apply endangered species laws for a tortoise that survived herds of bison trampling them for centuries? A the point of a gun and with little men with big dogs? We are a Nation built in the Rule of Law. The government cannot enforce only those laws they deem politically expedient or convenient.

What Would Reagan Do?

I believe we funded and trained the Mujahadeen, NOT the Taliban. To connect Reagan, who left office in 1988 with the Taliban in the late 90's and Bin Laden in 1993 and then 2001 is a bit of a stretch.Once Bin laden began his shenanigans (on Clintons watch) there were ample opportunities to take him out. Reagan was undoubtedly the best President in my 58 years, no one is remotely close. he took down the Soviet Union freeing millions, he cuts taxe and regulations and unleashed the American Machine, which rocked for 25 years. Ronald Reagan is a Western icon and is beyond reproach. It's a rough and nasty world and he did what he needed to do
Well said. For what my 2 cents are worth.
Who knows? They must speak a different language at Harvard and Columbia...O is the genius who refers to Pakistan ....as in PACK...ISTAN. as POCKYSTON right? What an alternate. Universe these ivy leaguers inhabit
If we really want to hurt the Russian oligarchs we should have them join ObamaCare
I think to cast a voters to where your tax dollars will be spent, you need to 1st actually be a taxpayer... People who get free stuff will vote for more free stuff. Those who pay...the taxpayer....mill make sure his or her dollars are being well spent.
Ann forgot to mention the "fiscal" genius, Paul Ryan and John McCain... What happens when more manual labor intense jobs become automated or Robotics do them? Then what?? Many more unskilled people on the Govt assistance.. This is not good...

This is a Proxy war between the SUNNIS (backed by Saudi Arabia) and the Shiites (backed by Iran) We have no need to be involved Cal. Let "them" sort it out, and we should wish them much success, BOTH Sides. The Rebels are Al Qaeda or other Jihaids. Hezbollah is on Sytia's side. We would be NUTZ to get involved and we could actually kick off WW III It's probably best to ring fence the problem by beefing up support to Turkey,Israal and Lebanon and HOPE it stays contained. We have made a mess of Libya and Egypt, and whereas once Iraq had hope it is now muddied. Our track record of "Change" has not been good.
The RINOS are in the tank for businesses that want tomexploit cheap labor. When in doubt,follow the money....you're instincts are likely correct
Exactly what are the Republicrats doing for us? They hold the purse strings... They have yet to defund Obamcare They failed to provide oversight with the IRS as they went after political targets They failed to provide oversight of the GSA as they threw million dollar shindigs, as did thenIRS And they are complicit in opening the country to 11 to 20 million(for now) illegals whomhave taken low skilled and entry level jobs, while we have a 15% plus unemployment rate in the Black Community, and underemployed college graduates with a Trillion dollars in student loans, and who also want to bring in H1B visa applicants to compete with these new college graduates... How are the Republicrats helping our citizens and our country?
