    “That’s why Bundy is the last rancher remaining”

    The article also claims Bundy is the last rancher remaining and I find that interesting because the stated reason for the federal fees was to regulate how much cattle could feed on public lands to keep the lands from being over-used. But if Bundy is truly the last rancher in the area, then the primary reason for the federal fee no longer would applies. Has this been discussed anywhere? Seems like a logical argument if assumed facts are true.

    I think we’ll be seeing more of this in the coming years. The gross federal overreach has gone way too far and people are sick of it. Regardless of how much this rancher is legally correct or not is irrelevant when many peoples’ perception of federal overreach is sky high. Can’t even wipe our butts anymore without some kind of environmental guilt and fine from the feds.

    The book is not a theological one. It is a historical one. Instead of being quick to tell me to use my head, you should be quick about understanding basic facts of the article and the book BEFORE posting.

    Growing up I always agreed with women’s rights. In my day, this was about the right to vote, fair pay, NOT being sexually harassed in the workplace and so on. Today, I’m still on board with reasonable causes with regard to women. However, I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but somewhere along the way the feminist movement seemed to become less about reasonable causes, and more about man-hating and irresponsibility. These things I will never agree with.

    Too many of you are making this about O’Reilly and seemingly missing the point. Nearly 3 decades ago, before I even self-identified myself as a conservative or liberal, I already started to become aware that there is something horribly wrong with our mainstream media. Back then I couldn’t put my finger on it. Then 911 happened and I ‘woke up’ and later discovered I am conservative and noticed how left-leaning our entire mainstream media is. There is no doubt that what O’Reilly points out in this article is true, like him or not.

    If global warming is actually real and better yet, if global warming is actually being caused by humans, it would certainly come as some surprise to the progressive puppet-masters who really don’t know themselves but could care less as ‘climate change’ is simply a means they’re using for an entirely unrelated ends. Namely, communism.

    Good message from this guy and I applaud it but he will now be relegated to the ranks of Bill Cosby, Ben Carson, Allen West, Herman Cain and others who are seen as nothing more than “********” and “oreos” by people of their own race.

    Beckel’s mouth is yapping as usual but inside his head all he’s saying over and over again to himself is ‘damn I wish I could get a girl like that.’

    NY is one heck of a bi-polar state. On the one hand, in NYNY they elect a communist mayor. But in Saratoga Springs they’re burning gun registration forms.

    Exactly.

    “reduce economic inequality so as to ensure fairer distribution of resources, and to dramatically reduce resource consumption by relying on less intensive renewable resources and reducing population growth”

    So, in short, implement every progressive liberty-stripping measure concocted over the last 50 years. Sad what NASA has turned into. It used to be a true shining example of American Liberty and Freedom but it’s quickly collapsing into a leftist talking head.

    I agree big time that the CA electorate allows itself to be fooled over and over again with the, ‘it’s for the kids’ argument. I’m pushing 50 and lived 40 of those year in CA and my entire life in CA every year it was the same thing, we need more taxes ‘for the kids’ and our failing schools. After nearly 50 years of taking more money ‘for the kids’ even an honest liberal should stop to ponder.

    I blame the electorate. Even with a corrupt agenda driven lefty media and all the progressive special intersects out their pushing their ideals, the truth of many things are not hard to find (and many of them are observable with your own eyes if you pay attention) if people could break away just long enough to search it out instead of putting every single second of their free time into entertainment.

    Everybody wins – maybe. The government for once seems to be doing things by due process (though I’m still skeptical and don’t have all info on this story yet). The store owner wins because he did not voluntarily give up his customer list so he saves face in the long run – which probably saves his life… maybe. Though I wonder if the government will even find a customer list at this point, he had plenty of time to purchase and use software that would utterly erase a hard drive.

    @Charleym1 I wouldn’t be so quick to make that judgment. The way I see it, collectively, our country behaves as a fool. So when things like this happen we should at least pause and consider that perhaps this is a real supernatural event. It may not be. But things like this happening on the floor of congress is not an everyday thing these days, especially as it relates to God as we understand Him from The Bible.

    It’s interesting that it is the child on the set of two-and-a-half-men that recognizes the sickness of that show while the adults remain numb and collect BIG checks. I hope he stays the course. He is a great contemporary example that illustrates God’s promise that any of us are worthy, no matter what we’ve done (or didn’t do) if we choose Him.

    I’m surprise the Sheriffs were surprised they were asked to disarm. We live in an age where if a 5 year old makes the shape of a gun with his fingers, ‘no-tolerance’ policies kick in that suspend the child and publically shame the family. Welcome to the other side of the mirror, Alice.

    @Stab_friendly you’re just regurgitating obamacare talking points all easily countered.

    1,2, & 4. Yep, almost everybody now can get health INSURANCE and you can’t be kicked off. But health insurance is NOT healthCARE… which is the exact problem the woman in this article is struggling to get, among millions of others in the same position due to the new law.

    3. Limited annual expenses is far from a settled matter. First, only a small percentage of people are currently experiencing lower costs – mostly those who didn’t have insurance before the new law. The masses, especially those who had health insurance before the new law, are paying considerably more for annual premiums and co-payments. Interestingly, my healthcare premiums went UP by exactly $2,500 this year when it supposedly was to go DOWN by that amount. And I am told I should feel LUCKY that it only went up by that amount. And the chatter has already started to expect more increases for next year.

    The arguments for the law, such as yours, speak to the INTENTIONS of the law and yes, some of those intentions are good ones. Those critical of the law are speaking of the RESULTS and there are plenty of results, intended or not, that are hurting people. This all against the backdrop of a president and a congress who passed a non-partisan law they didn’t read. The entire thing is a disaster and yet one more example of why ‘we the people’ need a LIMITED government.

    Detroit is one messed up place. Forget about debating the merits of protecting yourself with a gun when even when you call the police they’re as likely to assault you as anyone else.
