Anybody else think Bundy sounds like the old western movie character , can't remember which one though, either Andy Devine or Pat Burtram.
Dayum! I'd better make sure my property tax is paid to avoid any nasty snipers enforcing the tax code.

Walter Brennan perhaps?
I got tagged to be the Range Control Officer at Superior Valley for a week. When you drive there, the first item on the checklist is to fill the tank because when you leave the pavement, it's a 150 minute drive one way to get to the range. If you run out of gas, you're up rio de caca.
So I'm driving along on this dirt road and come upon a structure. (By structure, I mean poles planted into the ground and sheathing plywood nailed to the posts to form the walls with a painted plywood roof.) There's a desert rat standing in the middle of the road with some type of S&W wheel gun. Just off the road is a ~70s Ford F-150, and I saw some of the driver's cerebrum splattered on what glass was left in the door window.
I just floored it. I heard the guy saying, "I just found him! I just found him!" Yeah, right. We're 40 miles from a paved road and there's a guy with his head blown off in your front lawn, and you just happened to walk out after your breakfast tea with your pistol to find him.
read this a couple of times and I'm not surprised. Even though you were there, some encounters in life are hard to believe, harder to describe, and better left alone. I can relate
I haven't followed this 100% other than overviews here and there, but if he had a contract with the govt that his fees would be used for X purposes but then they end up being used for Y purposes, I think he has a right to stop paying the fees. That's my opinion though.

Eh but it does encourage it.

Do you think there would be snipers had he paid his dues or ceased grazing when the courts ordered him to?

In other words, he's very much like a welfare cheat. Is the government using excessive force? Maybe,

but this guy has turned into a magnet for all kinds of fringe groups, and you don't know who's out there and what they're liable to do.
Bureau of Land Management chief Neil Kornze made the announcement Saturday morning as hundreds of people, including militia members, gathered near the roundup area to protest the removal of hundreds of Cliven Bundy's cattle.
The bureau also will release 100 of the seized cattle under a deal announced after protesters, some of them armed with handguns and rifles, headed for a corral outside Mesquite in an attempt to free all of the seized cattle, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. The bureau did not immediately return calls to The Associated Press.
