It's not about Bundy. Although Bundy is a pawn in an American tragedy that has been destroying the lives and livelihoods of American citizens in the West for 70 years. Ever since the US land "management" agencies morphed from being public servants, into a fascist gestapo, armed and ready to kill, to promote various causes which are destroying the very ecosystems they allegedly seek to "protect".
It's about people like Wayne Hage, who was literally litigated to death in his fight to keep historic grazing rights. It's about Raymond Yowell, a Western Shoshone, who had his cattle stolen and sold by the Feds, who then billed him $180,000 for past grazing fees and garnished his Social Security when he couldn't pay. It's about the Dan sisters who had their horses confiscated at gunpoint because they believed for years that the Ruby Mountain Treaty gives then access to grazing Indian lands.
It's about Dick Carver, the Nye County Commissioner, who faced down armed USFS gestapo to re-open an RS 2477 road in his jurisdiction. It's about the Filippini's and Tomera's in Battle Mountain, who today, are blocked from grazing and their private water rights and threatened with stock confiscation on a BLM flunky's whim.
That's what it's all about, Amorette. It's about real people you have never heard of and who do not exist in your bubble world. An apparent Clockwork Orange, where you can point guns at people, steal their goods, hammer them with endless litigation to destroy their lives and still be Smokey Bear.
