They have guns. That's waving guns around. If it were truly peaceful, they'd have left the guns at home.

Ryan Bundy has said he's willing to kill...and be killed. That's a threat.

See above.

So law enforcement has to actually be present for them to be threatened?

Tell me, what started all this?

Go for it. Have fun and good luck.

You must not be on Facebook. There are some real loony toons...and they're egging these nutjobs on.

There is no excuse for forcibly seizing federal (read: public) property and holding it hostage. That usually ends badly for the perpetrators. They're criminals and should be treated as such.

A threat on one is a threat on all. Federal employees are killed while performing their duties more than you'd think, and now we have people openly threatening open season on social media. I really wish I was making this up and being dramatic, but in light of what happened in San Bernadino, I'm not.

You don't have to do any of those things to be crazy. Taking over a government building just hoping they kill you so you can start an armed insurrection against the government isn't sane. I'm sure you can see that.

I never said you were a racist. I said to be honest with yourself.

The difference is that Rice was a 12 year old boy with a toy gun running around a park and couldn't defend himself...and he was killed in seconds. These are grown men with real weapons also running around a park and no one shoots them.

Oh, the irony.

Here's what Cliven Bundy actually said, Brian. Please pay attention. He said that he does not recognize the authority of the federal government, only that of the state of Nevada. But Nevada directly contradicts him. LOL It's funny, really. He has a pre-Civil War view of sovereignty and states rights. :smacks forehead:

In 1995 one of the ranchers bombed the US Forestry Service. Did you know that? Oh, but they're peaceful, yeah, sure.

But let's play "what if" for just a minute. EVEN IF the feds "seized" the land illegally, that still doesn't mean the ranchers own it. Because most of it was taken illegally from the Native Americans. So, even if the feds gave up the land and returned it to their rightful owners, the ranchers are still SOL because it was never their land to begin with. I don't know what they're complaining about. If a private entity owned that land, they'd be paying $20 or $30 a head for grazing rights. BLM charges them $3 per head...and they're STILL not satisfied. They want FREE use of land that a private entity would charge them big bucks for.

The hypocrisy is laughable. As I said upthread, if this were a group of Black Panthers or ISIS, you'd be screaming for their heads on a plate.

And if they don't leave? Then what?
