The issue is that America is becoming a police state and we don't like those bully tactics and our police officers kill/attack first protect the peace second.

Na, its about the government going into the cow grass business and threating to kill anyone that wont pay the bill.

That would all be interesting, if it were true.
This is a story about a rich rancher who has been grazing his cattle for free and not paying his bills. This arrogant ass is grazing his commercial herd on Federal Land and refusing to pay his bills.
Follow the money. Or in this case watch it sit there in his bank account rather than paying his bills.

because; its like someone not paying their parking tickets; for 20 years, then pulling a gun and getting an armed mob together when the DMV comes to impound their car; which they still haven't moved. then screaming that the DMV brough armed personell/police in response.
Frankly I'm surprised that the right wing is defending this welfare queen bundy, but of course; any time it's a redneck it must be overuse of force or heavy-handed.
>left wing protesters getting peppersprayed, tasered, and beaten by cops(armed as well; rubber bullet, tear gas; possibly live ammo; A-OK! (after being surrounded by riot police, and cornered in a park that kinda removes the whole original purpose the movement had)
>right wing protesters(with guns) having to contend with armed government personel saying some harsh words(after having 20 years to comply with a court-ruling, and failing to do so); WHAT AN OUTRAGE!!! OBAMA MUST HAVE A PERSONAL AGENDA! RUSH LIMBAUGH AND/OR (other right-wing pundits/commentators/huxters) TOLD ME SO! I BET HARRY REID IS ALL BEHIND IT; HE'S LIBERAL AFTER ALL;(so say the pundits) AND DESPITE THE WHOLE SOLAR ENERGY-PLANT NOT HAVING ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS; THE MERE INVOLVEMENT OF REID IN THE GENERAL AREA OF THIS SOMEHOW MEANS HE HAS A PERSONAL GRUDGE AGAINST BUNDY!!!!
get over yourself reactionaries;

So the Bundy Ranch thing really exposed the American political lunacy to perfection.
Most people that you would talk to don't understand the underlying issue of land use, grazing rights, the legal battle etc. And really none of that is important.
The issue was that the BLM/Federal Government used heavy handed law enforcement policies and people don't like it ...from deploying snipers, being heavily armed, throwing women to the ground etc. The same thing happened with the Occupy movement and protests and are happening in Albuquerque. The issue is that America is becoming a police state and we don't like those bully tactics and our police officers kill/attack first protect the peace second.
Now you have most left wing publications calling this a right wing militia fanatical movement that is laughable. you have Harry Reid calling these people domestic terrorists and we have ample evidence of how heavily armed these BLM thugs were. I can't even stand it. On most issues, I do lean toward the left but not on standing up to police brutality. I think the militia should have gone there and I think it was the right thing to do. But the media is twisting this around. The left wing media! They are making me sick. .
That's our lunacy. That we will be forever divided, no matter what happens. Police brutality and standing up against the police state should be a left and right issue that can bring this country together for some real change but...nope.
This makes me sick,
When will we actually grow up and see that we are being played for fools?
