1. My friend’s back east know how progressive Portland, Oregon. Since moving here two years ago from near Boston I’ve told them about our legal pot, assisted suicide, same sex marriage, naked bike rides, bisexual governor and high overall weirdness ratings were as surprised as I was to hear about this lunatic fringe taking over a wildlife refuge near Burns. When we all heard that “LaVoy” – the idiotic tarp-man who was interviewed on TV, was shot dead, to a person here in my home for retired geezers everyone thought he got what he deserved.

    The local media covered this story a lot, so the rest of the country might have missed the aftermath when the police and other officials moved in to assess the damage. These “patriots” were worse than pigs in the slop they left behind.

  2. No one is going to feel sorry for these armed thugs who have been terrorizing a rural community Most of the “patriots” involved in this lawless takeover have long felony records. The others are unemployed or living off government loans and “disability” checks. These social “parasites” were stupid enough to videotape themselves committing a series of federal crimes and brazenly post it all over social media while taunting the federal authorities. These parasites were clearly delusional if they thought the American taxpayers would just give up 300 acres of our land so these societal leeches could turn it into their private ranch. These thugs broke into federal files and computers and then began following the wives and teenage children of BLM employees and local police. Imaging how brave these “heroes” are, grown “men” with guns were following and harassing the women and children of Burns. These “parasites” saw a middle aged woman wearing a BLM shirt at Safeway. The three “patriots” verbally abused her in front of a crowd and then told her they would follow her home and burn down her house. That’s right. Three unemployed thugs living off the government dole threatening a middle aged woman who had a job and was paying taxes that supported their welfare checks. These zeroes then began harassing the families of local law enforcement. These occupying losers starting following the high school aged children of local cops. The sheriff and others had to move their families and their parents to safe houses after these rural terrorists began attacking their private homes. (and unlike these toy dress up soldiers, the sheriff actually served our nation in Afghanistan. These Bundy thugs only dress up like soldiers and stand around and drink beer and tell each other how tough they are.) No one wanted them in Burns, not the ranchers, not the townsfolk, no one. When the town tried to have a meeting with only residents (needed local ID to get in), these domestic terrorists threatened violence so the meeting had to be canceled. These brave” men” brought children to the refuge; what gutless wonders hiding using their own children as human shields. What poor excuse for a man puts his child in harm’s way? And as soon as the first arrests occurred and things got real, these brave “patriots” who had paraded around like the toy soldiers are screamed like little girls and fled like the cowards they are. The old fool who was fatally shot vowed online for weeks that he would rather die than go to prison. A real man would sit in prison for decades in the hope to be with his loved ones after being released. This self-absorbed coward choose his personal comfort over his family. The FBI wisely waited until these parasites were away from town before confronting them so no innocent citizen would be killed. I, for one, applaud the law enforcement officials who gave these parasites far more options to leave than I would had the patience to do. And I, for one, hope these parasites who were arrested spend the rest of their lives in federal prisons.

  3. And now’s a good time to post a reminder that George Washington never said that an armed and discipline populace was necessary to protect from tyranny even when that tyranny came from your own government – that quote is a 20th century hoax.

    There were a handful of Founding Fathers who said similar things, but Washington wasn’t one of them. He specifically said in his Farewell Address that having the power to choose our government means a duty to obey the established government. And John Adams wrote in his book about constitutions that to presume bearing arms meant doing anything you please beyond personal defense and coming to the defense of a state or federal government was to destroy every constitution.
