You know I rarely engage these imbeciles on their dumb daily dose of bullsh it ,but it's fun picking on the climate change deniers. When you break them down they have nothing.
what do you have, paco, besides following a faux consensus??
which incidentally has nothing to do with the scientific method.

Among the questions asked of the BLM, "Is it possible that this guy (Cliven Bundy) has prescriptive rights?" The response from top officials at the BLM, "We are worried that he might, and he might use that defense."

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Same old nonsense over and over again. I swear you do not possess the ability to think rationally or logically. I'm not going to discuss the subject any further. I provided you with facts and you come back with illogical personal opinions. Go back to sleep.
No, you did not provide "facts". You copy and pasted stuff failing to understand what it meant.

"From the beginning of our nation, states gave up title over their public lands to the federal government only to serve as a trustee for the purpose of creating new states and using the proceeds of any lands it may sell to pay the national debt from the Revolutionary War. The federal government honored this duty until it got to the West. Arid western lands were harder to sell. However, this never meant the federal government should just keep them.

In 1976, Congress enacted a “policy”(Federal Lands Policy Management Act, or FLPMA) declaring that it would simply retain these lands in federal ownership. However, in 2009 a unanimous U.S. Supreme Court declared that Congress does not have the authority to unilaterally change the “uniquely sovereign character” of a statehood contract, or enabling act, particularly “where virtually all of a state’s public lands are at stake.”

http://www.federalisminaction.com/2013/06/nev...

1. You posted the Nevada constitution and represented it as saying the FEDs owned the lands from the beginning. No, what it stated was the state ceded the land to the FEDs.

2. This arrangement of FEDs controlling the lands was met to be temporary.

3. SCOTUS in 2009 struck down the law pass by Congress stating they did not have the right to change the statehood contract. Utah and Nevada responded to that ruling requesting the return of lands not national parks or military (you posted these)

Your "facts" did not support your claims.

<quoted text>"Lately, Cliven Bundy's revolt against federal bureaucrats has gotten plenty of attention.
The literal standoff between the Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) made for good TV, but the media has failed to explain how deep these tensions truly run.
You see, I came of age in the West during the 1970s and, for those of us bred in the wide-open spaces out there, the use of government lands was an issue of universal concern.
During the '70s and '80s, the Sagebrush Rebellion galvanized those of us who wanted the federal government to give more control of federal lands to state and local authorities. We were called Sagebrush Rebels.
Even Ronald Reagan, then Governor of California, embraced the movement, saying: "I happen to be one who cheers and supports the Sagebrush Rebellion. Count me in as a rebel."
In fact, land use was one of the issues Reagan rode all the way to the White House. He swept every western state on his way to presidential victory in 1980. So even though Cliven Bundy's struggle against the BLM seems like an anomaly today, it's really just the latest chapter in an ongoing struggle."

Ronald Reagan, February 14, 1986

"By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, and in order to provide for establishment of appropriate fees for the grazing of domestic livestock on public rangelands, it is ordered as follows:

Section 1. Determination of Fees. The Secretaries of Agriculture and the Interior are directed to exercise their authority, to the extent permitted by law under the various statutes they administer, to establish fees for domestic livestock grazing on the public rangelands which annually equals the $1.23 base established by the 1966 Western Livestock Grazing Survey multiplied by the result of the Forage Value Index (computed annually from data supplied by the Statistical Reporting Service) added to the Combined Index (Beef Cattle Price Index minus the Prices Paid Index) and divided by 100; provided, that the annual increase or decrease in such fee for any given year shall be limited to not more than plus or minus 25 percent of the previous year's fee, and provided further, that the fee shall not be less than $1.35 per animal unit month."

The feds are so desperate to hide Harry Reid’s connection to a Communist Chinese energy company linked to the Cliven Bundy land grab, they are now even deleting Google’s cached version of an explosive document originally deleted from the BLM website.

You can be a Communist Harry and strong arm google with your dictator O'bama, but this is still America--the document is already out there.

Read my post above.

The FEDs still own more than 50% of Nevada and about 70% of California.

SCOTUS overturned a Congressional law making the FED continual ownership of those lands as legal as the FEDs needed to follow the original contract with the state (documented in my post above)

So?

Do the FEDs have any standing to continue ownership of these lands?

Good grief, is anyone really surprised about the interconnection of the Damnocratic (read “socialist”) Party of Americanski (Osama Obama-Reid & son) and the Chinese (read that “holders of our debt”), and the Bundy land grab using US storm troopers (aka “SS”). Remember the “SS”(read that “government assassins”) are there to keep the party in power in power?

Hmmm. The repTARDS should be able to turn this into a conspiracy theory:

I just tried to access the BLM webpage and was met with the following:

"The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) website ( www.blm.gov ) and all associated websites/pages are currently unavailable due to planned maintenance on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 starting at 8:00 PM Mountain Time until approximately Midnight Mountain Time. The total outage time should be no more than 4 hours."

"WASHINGTON — The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said.

The changes are intended to improve the accuracy of the survey, being conducted this month in interviews with tens of thousands of households around the country. But the new questions are so different that the findings will not be comparable, the officials said.

An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire included a “total revision to health insurance questions” and, in a test last year, produced lower estimates of the uninsured. Thus, officials said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.

Iris I. Burnell, a tax preparer in Washington, says she has been talking to clients about the tax implications of health coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

“We are expecting much lower numbers just because of the questions and how they are asked,” said Brett J. O’Hara, chief of the health statistics branch at the Census Bureau."
