LOL. Obviously you have never been to Bullhead City. It is miles from the Nevada/California border and so is the Needles Highway and the Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area where the Chinese plant was proposed. You are clueless.
Now, if you people want to make an issue about solar and Bundy's ranch, you should probably be focusing on the Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project, which really is about 35 miles from the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada. First Solor,Inc. and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power broke ground for that plant on March 21, 2014. Of course, the Indians are free to do whatever they want with their land. Reid must be laughing at you and yours.

Bullhead City is in Arizona, directly across the Colorado river from the proposed site.....

Senator Reid's Chinese project died because nobody wanted to purchase the power....

Where are you getting your bullshit from?
I know, the same place you get your information about the CRA not being a disaster that collapsed our economy.
Give us that link that claims there were illegal fully automatic weapons in use by anyone other than the government.
By the way, since there are not two sets of rights in the Constitution, any American has the right to own any weapon the government determines is necessary to protect Americans. If the government thinks they need a machine gun to protect me, then very obviously I need a machine gun to protect myself when that government "protection" isn't there when I need it.
Now, back you you backing up your propaganda bullshit....
it was an educated guess.

What if Bundy Ranch Were Owned by a Bunch of Black People?

A few things.

First, this entire incident speaks to the continued power of right-wing mythology. For many of the protesters, this isn’t about a rogue rancher as much as it’s a stand against “tyranny” personified in Barack Obama and his administration.

Second, it won’t happen, but right-wing media ought to be condemned for their role in fanning the flames of this standoff. After years of decrying Obama’s “lawlessness” and hyperventilating over faux scandals, it’s galling to watch conservatives applaud actual lawbreaking and violent threats to federal officials.

Finally, I can’t help but wonder how conservatives would react if these were black farmers—or black anyone—defending “their” land against federal officials. Would Fox News applaud black militiamen aiming their guns at white bureaucrats?

Somehow, given the degree to which right-wing media traffic in racial paranoia, I think we’d be looking at a different situation if the Bundy Ranch belonged to a bunch of black people. And as someone who closely follows the regular incidents of lethal police violence against blacks and Latinos, I also wonder whether law enforcement would be as tepid against a group of armed African-Americans. Judging from past events, I’m not so sure.

Yes they do; Broward County can't figure out what to do about the homeless issue, which is growing every year. The bill to use some of the abandoned houses to house them failed; but a bill to fine the homeless for having their belongings on the street passed, along with anti public defecation and urination! The local businesses are fed up; they don't want them loitering around and pissing on the sidewalks, but they don't want them coming into their businesses to do so either. There's a park beside the library where they often congregate that smells of piss and they go into the library till someone kicks them out. What next? They are homeless, they can't pay fines. It's absurd. Utah has been giving them homes no strings attached; and has made quite a dent in the homeless population; let them be an example of a solution to a problem.
Regaring tort reform; we've been over that; it's less that one half of one percent of costs, more rightwing bullshit. Let Carols husband lose a leg due to malpractice and she'll sing a different tune.
Hawaii figured out what to do with their homeless. They ship them to California and let California deal with it.
Does anybody ever wonder why Hawaii doesn't have an illegal alien problem?

Oh, wait. Our government is rebelling against that Constitution. Well, if the government is taking our rights away, then there's a huge problem with the government and corporations being the only armed element in the country. I mean, what will happen if we want our rights back? The government will have no other option than to slaughter enough of the population to convince the remaining percentage to not try to get their rights back.

The Democrats' plan is for only Democrats to have guns. If you don't believe that, read Chicago's gun laws, then take a leisure stroll through any part of the south side of Chicago around midnight.... or just count the bodies after any weekend.

The Fifth Amendment applies to black people, too, moron.

You use the word "conservative" a lot. I wonder if you can define it. Let's see:

One person likes the idea of a totalitarian government and a one-party system. Another person likes the idea of three branches of government with limited authority and maximum ability of the people at the local level to make their own determinations.

Which of the above is conservative?

Here's another one:

One person wants only the government to be armed and have the ability to dominate a defenseless population. Another person thinks all people should have the right to be equally armed and able to resist domination.

Which of the above is conservative?

... we could go on for days proving the Democrats are an extreme medieval conservative mentality.
So, how did you ever become so ignorant, you actually think you're a liberal?
