One. More. Time. I never expressed an opinion on the justice/injustice of their sentence. They have a long history in that area, but they are not fighting their sentence. They are complying.
That's the difference between them and Waco and Ruby Ridge. They complied. David Koresh and Randy Weaver did not. But they're not the ones camped out in an armed takeover of public property, denying taxpayers access to their own land. The Bundys and their thug friends are. Whatever else happens here, the Hammonds are not involved and bear no responsibility for it.
Even the Cattlemen's Association is calling for the Bundys to knock it off and leave.

It's not "ranchers grasslands". It's OUR grasslands. And they owe us money.
Being a Canadian, you can probably be forgiven for not knowing the difference. It is not the rancher's property. It is the People's Land according to the Constitution.

I don't have a lot of sympathy for the ranchers at all. They've bilked the taxpayers out of millions (getting rich themselves) and destroyed entire ecosystems in the process. They have no right to complain about losing a few cattle.
