Did you vote to make the BLM a militarized agency? I sure as hell didn't.
The BLM is a cover group for land grabbing, for those with enough clout in high places to grab it.

And this is how loons talk.
Ol' Harry is a traitor and must be arrested. He's labeling Americans "terrorists" so that he can send in troops and fire on them. This shows what he is and how he, and his friends' warped minds work.

Like I said I have no issue with anyone or their beliefs, be that they are religious, gay, straight whatever. People are just people trying to get through it all. The government is the issue, not each other. They want P.C., religion and 2 parties to divide us. What concerns me most is just agreeing on common ground so we can take back what we should have, freedom. Freedom offers more than what they have laid out, pitting all of us against each other for years. I just hope more wake up before it's too late. If it comes to conflict, like Mel Gibson said in Braveheart... "You go around and flank them, and I'll meet you in the middle!" I just sincerely hope it doesn't come to that, unfortunately the writing on the wall is becoming apparent though.
Among the questions Devlin asked of the BLM, “Is it possible that this guy (Cliven Bundy) has prescriptive rights?” The response from top officials at the BLM, “We are worried that he might and he might use that defense.”

Love it how Bundy supporters are all over with their rhetoric. Completely ignoring that this fellow is using land that is not his and refuses to pay less than 2$ / month / cow. If he wasn't allowed to graze there he would be paying a #ton more. He is nothing but a freeloader and a thief. Feds should just take his farm for what he owes and if any supporter resists just give them a ride to jail if they live through. Using force of arms to steal is as bad as it gets and is exactly the reason why responsible gun owners are being frowned upon.
You do not have to kill anyone, you simply have to threaten violence to be a terrorist, that is the benchmark all across the world.
Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
Ummm... The BLM, police, FBI and the rest are not defined as terrorists because they are agents of a government that has authorized them to do specific jobs. In the case of BLM, that job is to enforce laws within the BLM jurisdiction.
1. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) systematic use of violence and intimidation to achieve some goal 2. the act of terrorizing 3. the state of being terrorized
Next thing you'll say is that police men, soldiers, security guards and people defending their homes from burglars are terrorists. Because by your definition, these groups will also fall into the hole of stupid you guys are digging here
If this man stayed lawful, he would have my support, but he didn't, he freeloaded on public land essentially.
What you people probably do not realize is that on every rancher’s grazing permit it says the following: “You are authorized to make grazing use of the lands, under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management and covered by this grazing permit, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this grazing permit and payment of grazing fees when due.” The “mandatory” terms and conditions go on to list the allotment, the number and kind of livestock to be grazed, when the permit begins and ends, the number of active or suspended AUMs (animal units per month), etc.
Every rancher must sign this “contract” agreeing to abide by the TERMS AND CONDITIONS before he or she can make payment. In the early 90s, the BLM went on a frenzy and drastically cut almost every rancher’s permit because of this desert tortoise issue, even though all of us ranchers knew that cow and desert tortoise had co-existed for a hundred+ years. As an example, a family friend had his permit cut by 90%. For those of you who are non ranchers, that would be equated to getting your paycheck cut 90%.
Clive Bundy was one of these people who received extremely unfair and unreasonable TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Keep in mind that Mr. Bundy was required to sign this contract before he was allowed to pay. Had Clive signed on the dotted line, he would have, in essence, signed his very livelihood away.
Many of the responses include predictions for his political future – along with others who seem to put personal aspirations above their sworn oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution.
The backlash was not contained to Facebook. Twitter has been inundated with similarly scathing comments
