Yes, he does. His family has owned that land since 1887. He's grandfathered in.
He stopped paying when he saw that all they were doing was using his own money against him instead of improving the land as they had been set up to do. He offered the fees to the county but the county refused them. Read Bundy's daughter, Sheree's letter. Google it. You should find it easily. I did. It's all about the history of this feud and she presents a lot of facts the mainstream media is omitting. This man has done nothing wrong. He owns the land. It's his.
Yes, it IS his land. His great grandfather bought it in 1887. The grazing rights have been passed down to each generation, the same as air rights and mineral rights and right-of-way on your own property is passed down. He's grandfathered in.

This is NOT about the desert tortoise. That tortoise has coexisted with thousands of herds of buffalo for hundreds of generations. The prairie grasses also did very well. No Native America artifacts were destroyed, either. These measly few cows can't possibly do any damage to those tortoises. And if those tortoises are so endangered, then why is the BLM killing them off in other places out west when the tortoises get in the way of fracking?
Google Sheree Bundy's letter and read it. It's easy to find. This site won't let me post it. Just google it. It's an eye-opener. This land has been owned by the Bundy family since 1887. The grazing rights were grandfathered in and he shouldn't have to pay to use his own land.

Romney is no crown jewel, that is for sure. But he beats obama's islam-loving ways. Romney being president will give us a better chance to regain what obama's executive orders have cost us. But if obama gets back in, we'll never be a free country again. If he gets reelected, then a small suggestion is this, to all contact-wearing patriots: buy glasses and get rid of your contact lenses. It will probably be impossible to get saline solution while encarcerated in a fema camp. Glasses will be easier to use.

Just so you know. The restaurant industry has routinely been hiring teenagers for more than 40 years now. They are wonderful workers for the most part and there isn't a fast food restaurant around that doesn't employ them. You must not have been in our country for very long not to have known this.

Are you insane? I have managed many fast food restaurants over the years and the concept of lazy applies equally to all races of people, not just to Americans. Teenagers are a wonderful group of people that the fast food industry routinely hires because it provides teens with entry into the job market at a fair market rate of pay called minimum wage. The best people I've had on my teams were teenagers. They are smart, loyal, willing to learn, hard working people. I've had foreigners on my teams whom I wouldn't trust with a hot french fry. They like to argue, are quick to take offense. I would easily hire an American teenager over a foreigner of any age.

"And those who might be expected to fill the same niche as low-skilled foreign workers -- American-born high school dropouts, for example -- aren't very attractive to employers". If this is true, we must assume that American employers want non Americans who have never graduated from high school. That way they can pay them under the table and below minimum wage. It also means that American wage earners who applied for those positions never had a snowballs' chance in hell of even being offered one of those jobs!
