    You’re ASSuming the Federal government actually has any constitutional claim on the property. As the U.S. Constitution specifically limits the powers of the Federal government, and as it has not been granted the powers of which the BLM is claiming, it is the Federal Government that is breaking the law, claiming land rights which it does not have constitutionally speaking. The Federal Government should not own ANY land, especially outside of DC. All the land that is not privately owned in each state should be owned by the states and not the federal government. This is the constitutional argument RANCHER is making, which constitutionally speaking, is correct. An important truth NEEDS to be realized: The federal government has been overstepping its constitutional bounds for many decades, and until the people become educated enough to realize this, and vigilant enough to stand against this, tyranny will continue to grow. Just because they have gotten away with this for generations now does not mean we should not take a stand NOW.

    The Blaze isn’t innocent on this one. They are blaming unpaid dues as the reason for the cattle confiscation. In truth, even if the man had paid the dues, they would still be there confiscating his cattle due to the “endangered desert tortus”. From reading the articles by the blaze, you would think this was all about dues, which it is not. Regardless, where in the constitution is it enumerated that the federal government can even create a Department of Land Management?

    The Blaze is misleading on why they began confiscating this mans cattle. It wasn’t because he refused to pay the grazing fee, but rather due to a damn turtle! It is due to the “endangered desert tortus” that is making it “illegal” for any rancher to have their cattle there. In fact, other ranchers had previously taken their cattle there to graze on the land, but after the DLM ruled the land belonged to some damned turtle, no one has been “allowed” to have their cattle graze their since.

    No, you should not get an asskicking practicing your free speech, that is the point of the RIGHT. I am an veteran of the United States Air Force, and one of the motto’s we lived by was, “I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will fight for your right to say it.” Though the Marines action were well intentioned, they just broke their oath when they violated that mans rights instead of protecting them.

    For her own sake, and for the sake of her son, she needs to forgive him. A heart filled with anger and hate will do no harm to the man she holds it for, but it may/will have devastating affect on those about her and herself.

    I feel bad for the dog, but cops have a nasty habit of shooting other peoples dogs all the time! Perhaps this will give cops a moments pause before they feel a need to shoot anothers dog now that they know what its like.

    You don’t need a special law for this. The constitution enumerates the “freedom of association”, meaning we have a right to choose with whome we associate with and whom we will not. We don’t need to point to religious freedom, just our right to choose with whom we wish to associate with. It is as simple as that. Not sure why that argument hasn’t been put forward yet when it is the most simple and most direct concerning this issue.

    Low life’s; yes. Only a lowlife would target innocent children. Cowards, not so much. Takes a lot of courage to be willing to kill yourself for a cause. However, what stuck out to me in this story was the selfless courage and sacrifice this young man had for his friends and classmates. There is no greater love.

    If you pay the fine, then you’re not rebelling or protesting obamacare. The government gives you 2 choices: either get healthcare or pay the fine. Choosing option B is not protesting, but rather consenting to the government. If you really want to take a stand, don’t get the insurance and don’t pay the fine! If the government really cared wether or not you got insurance, the a fine wouldn’t be an option. This is about control, not healthcare.

    I am a USAF Veteran just as my brother is also a USAF Vet. My father served in the Army as did one of my grandfathers; the other in the Coast Guard. I currently have two brother in laws serving in the military as well as many friends who have served and are still serving; so what I have to say, I have more of a right than many here.

    Damn these wars, and damn our leaders for sending our best men and women to fight, bleed and die for a cause that has nothing to do with defending this nation nor the Constitution. This nations sons and daughters are being sacrificed to the point where they come home with broken bodies, spirits, and minds, for they are fighting a war that is neither moral or just.

    Because of this statement, some here may think I am a progressive hippy who is anti-war. What it really means is that I put a greater price upon the blood of our servicemen and women than most here. I hold their blood so sacred that it is only in the defense of THIS NATION, of THIS PEOPLE, of THIS CONSTITUTION for which is should be spilt.

    You see, the cost is more than just blood, but also in family. These are sons and daughters, husband and wives, mothers and fathers that are torn apart. The distance alone causes families to fail. Men come home with broken minds, and families fail. And for what?

    If you really love and support our troops, bring them home to their families. Bring them home to our borders. Just bring them home. My sisters would greatly appreciate that

    Your sounding like a liberal Yams. “We’re the government and we have a right to regulate your life!” If the government derives it’s power from the consent of the people, and this man does not give his consent, how do they have power over him? I didn’t know the king, I mean state had a rightful claim on all the wildlife. Yam, there are ways to protect “food sources” without interfering or violating individual rights, and yes, licensing, which is another word for taxing, is a violation of this mans rights.

    Snowden a whistleblower? What did he reveal that we didn’t already know? The real question is, why is it suddenly now being made into a big deal, when in fact we have known for years that this has been going on?

    Atheism and secularism are just belief systems like every other belief system, including Christian, Muslim, Jew, etc. To say that a person cannot express their belief because it could be interpreted as forcing a belief upon another is hypocritical, for are not the atheist and secularist doing just that. This young man did well not only in expressing his belief, but did so in a respectful way that stood up to those little tyrants who would have had him silenced.

    The second amendment trumps any state law.

    People tend to think that the United States Government and the United States people are on in the same. This however is sadly not true. What the government does and what the people think the government does are two seperate things. The United States Government tends to meddle in other nations affairs. Just look at the middle east. We meddled in Lybia taking part in ousting their “dictator”. Now the flag of terrorists flies over its capital. We are currenty meddling in Syria, and come to found out the rebel fighters we are supporting are the same ones we are fighting in other nations. Let us not also forget the history of Iran where the CIA, and American Agency kicked out their elected leader in place of their own puppet, which ended up being the cause of so much angst between our two nations today. You need to wake up people. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE GOVERNMENT OF AMERICA ARE NOT THE SAME THING. Our government is perhaps the greatest cause for our troubles today.

    How about due to the blatent corruption that was demonstrated at the Republican National Convention where the grassroots were shot down and completely disenfranchised. How about nominating a progressive republican as presidential candidate instead of a real fiscal constitutional conservative. I could go on, but needless to say, I am done with the republican party.

    This isn’t a tax, this is theft!

    You idiot! It is not uncommon for people to sit in an idling car as it warms up. 99.999% of the time this is a safe thing to do. What is uncommon however is that the exhaust was plugged up, making it unable for the exhaust to escape like it normally does. Unfortunately, instead of escaping to the outside of the car, it went inside. This is a tragic mistake many people are apt to make, and to insult a grieving father for a mistake that wasn’t even really his fault is a pathetic and weak thing to do.

    “Preemptive Strike” is no less an act of war as “Preemptive war”. Basically, if Israel does what it is threatening to do is to start a war with Syria, which would then drag in Iran, ultimately ending with perhaps a world war. Israel had better proceed with caution, for they may be kicking a hornets nest that will in turn give them one hell of a sting, along with the rest of the world.

    I find Becks comments on Jesus, Ghandi, and MLK humorous. Jesus taught that there will come a time to sell your cloak to buy a sword. Ghandi only did peaceful protest because his people were disarmed and thus unable to have a violent revolution, and MLK wasn’t protesting the ban of arms, but rather other civil issues. More and more, I am having less doubt about where Glenn stands, and it seems to not be with the patriots.

    P.S. Glenn,
    George Washington didn’t believe in a peaceful protest when the British came for their guns, rather they answered the British with war rather than to be disarmed, for once you are disarmed, there is no recourse.
