To self-described militia members sleeping in wind-whipped tents, drinking camp coffee and patrolling rocky hillsides with military-style weapons, protecting Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his family from an overreaching federal government is a patriotic duty.

So nobody's got any proof that the two dangerously aggressive bulls that were put down actually belonged to bundy?

Pathetic how tea -bagging radical righties post B.S. and then run and hide when asked for facts.

The only good to come out of this issue is that bundy threw his supporters like faux and tush -bimbo under the bus.

The modern Republican party stands for two things and they'll use any story or any lie to support the rich and corporations while automatically bad mouthing any government program. They wouldn't give sick grandmothers anything from the government if they were paupers and didn't have any health care. They have been caught onto. They've lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections. When blacks, hispanics, gays, women and young voters actually make it to the polls the Republican doesn't stand a chance. That's why they are trying everything short of a poll tax to keep those groups from voting.

I was a Republican back when they supported America and not some special interest for the wealthy....like no taxes. Dwight Eisenhower was the first presidential vote I cast and things were so different back then there is no similarity today. Eisenhower started the Interstate highway system and the modern Republican party won't even appropriate enough money to repair it. I've been watching closely since the days of Reagan and if we have a Democrat in the white house the Interstates are repaired and if a Republican takes over improvements and repairs stop in their tracks as soon as money already appropriated dries up.

The "Trickle Down" lie that Reagan and Bush41 started never worked...it never will work. Trickle Down my ass...you let a rich man get his hands on tax free money you can forget it. That's why the gap between the upper 5% and the rest has widened so much since the 80's. Right now the richest 85 people in the world have as much wealth as the lowest 3.7 billion and every day it gets worse. Every time I hear one of those bastards mention a flat tax I gag on my own spit. If they ever get that they can fire all their accountants and tax lawyers who are working to see that they never have to pay more than 20% now.

In the late 1940's and early 1950's a corporate executive made about 12-15 times what a carpenter or plumber made. In 2010 that figure had jumped to about 500 times as much. As a group 50 of America's biggest company's CEOs got year-end payouts of $126 million. 49.8 percent of Americans make less than $50,000 a year in household income. Guess what?? All you can hear from the Republicans is lower taxes for corporations and the wealthy. I don't see why any ordinary worker ever votes Republican. They won't be happy till an ordinary worker in this country earns the same thing as a Malaysian day laborer with no benefits.

One bright spot......if the Republican party doesn't do something drastic to improve their relationship with ordinary Americans they're on their way out. Whites will be a minority in America by 2050 and that's bad news for the lily white Right and the party of T.

one of these days republicans will learn the difference between a racial remark, like say nergros were better off as slaves picking cotton and speaking the truth about racism.

Here's an opinion piece from a black scholar of American Studies, Nadra Kareem Nittle

http://racerelations.about.com/b/2010/01/09/r...

"While his use of the outdated term Negro is problematic, I believe that Sen. Reid has a point. The Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson have been openly mocked in the mainstream media for delivering speeches with a distinct African-American cadence. That the biracial Obama can choose to speak in a way that's deemed race-neutral likely contributed to his crossover appeal.

As for Obama's lighter skin, we know that colorism thrives both in and outside of the United States. Lighter-skinned people are generally considered more desirable in a variety of racial groups. Whites prefer blondes over brunettes. Many Asian ethnic groups associate brown skin with peasants or farmers and fair skin with the upper classes. And in the black community, being able to pass the paper bag test (having skin lighter than the standard paper lunch bag) was historically an admirable achievement. Moreover, studies have indicated that lighter-skinned blacks in the U.S. excel in the workforce at a higher rate than their darker-skinned counterparts. So, yes, perhaps the fact that Obama could pass the paper bag test made him more attractive to Americans of all backgrounds than a dark-skinned black candidate would've been. As an African American who is not light-skinned, I detest this phenomenon but can't ignore its reality. "

when i heard Bundy start his rant, all i could think of was Michele Bahmann..

"Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President."...

sadly, this was at the height of bachmann's glory days of spewing idiotic nonsense and it got a little lost in the sheeer tonnage of crap that spewed from her pie hole...

See...the bastard didn't even mention freedom. That's what this country is supposed to be....free. It should not make a difference whether a citizen is white, brown, red, yellow or purple. The phrase "All Men Are Created Equal" doesn't mean shit to the wealthy and corporations who keep poor people tied up making barely enough to live on while they are salting away millions each and every year. For the last 30 years I have been ashamed of what this country has turned into.

And so far your "proof" includes people who aren't and weren't even cabinet members.
