    @ModerateRepublican
    Don’t be such a media-milk fed rube.
    This wasn’t about grazing fees or desert tortoises.

    …And you wrote: ” His grandparents who he says helped settle the valley did not even live in Nevada at the time. His maternal grandparents had a ranch in nearby Maverick which they bought sometime around 1930 (at least those are the earliest records found). His maternal grandmother wasn’t even born until 1901 and they moved to Nevada from Utah”. This is almost a totally false statement on your part. The article you linked did NOT state that Bundy’s maternal grandparents bought their ranch in 1930. It merely stated that at the time of the 1930 census they lived in neighboring MESQUITE, Nevada, not Maverick. It also stated they were in the area in the early 1900s. What the article actually states is that Bundy’s grandmother Christena Jensen was born in Nevada in 1901 and that her parents were originally from Utah. It does NOT say Christena was born in 1901, THEN they moved to Nevada as you falsely claim. There is no mention of when Christena’s parents moved to Nevada. They may have moved there shortly before Christina was born or they may have moved there with their respective parents some 20+ years before Christina was born. Also we were not given a date for when John Jensen’s (Bundy’s maternal Grandfather) parents immigrated and settled in southwest Nevada. We aren’t given the settlement dates of either but that didn’t stop you from falsely misrepresenting the information given and calling Cliven Bundy a liar. Isn’t that IRONIC!

    @SoSorrySackOf
    You wrote: “…except that Sherriff Mack doesn’t realize that Bundy’s claim to his family owning that ranch doesn’t go back to 1877″. Nice try SoSorrySack. Cliven Bundy NEVER claimed that his family owned HIS ranch since the 1870s. He said: “His family has ranched in the Bunkerville AREA since the 1870s.

    Also you wrote: “Clark County records show that Bundy’s father bought the ranch from non-relatives in 1948 – two years after the creation of BLM”. So what? Bundy never said his father bought his ranch from relatives. And again so what that Bundy’s father bought the ranch two years after the creation of the BLM. The BLM had NO federal mandate until 1976. In other words the BLM had NO authority to regulate water rights until 28 years AFTER Cliven Bundy’s father bought his ranch and 22 years after 1954 which is the year that U.S. District Judge Johnnie Rawlinson stated in 1998 that Bundy and/or his father began grazing on land administered by the BLM. Also the article you linked pointed out at least some of the Bundy’s watering rights were deeded to the Bundy’s along with the ranch property. So regardless of how you or the News 8 web intern reporter tries to spin the facts. They actually are evidence that favors Bundy’s argument that; “he or his father either bought or inherited his Nevada state livestock water rights”. continued….

    Just keep ‘em sniffing around guys. Maybe the blind hogs at the Blaze will stumble across an acorn of truth one day…if it’s placed right under their nose.

    Nowhere in the bible does it say the earth is 6,000 years old. That approximate 6,000 year figure came from uneducated clergy who misinterpreted the scriptures and have tried to use the chronology of generations and ages in the old testament to count backwards to Adam. While it may be true Adam lived approximately 6,000 years ago, that has nothing to do with the age of the earth.
    Genesis 1: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
    Genesis 2: And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep…
    There is no indication of how much time passed between Genesis 1 and Genesis 2. The Ancient Hebrew word in Genesis 2 that was translated to mean “was” has a double meaning in Hebrew. The other meaning is “became”. And that same Hebrew word is translated to mean “became” over 40 more times in the Old Testament. So when read properly Genesis 2 should read: “The earth became without form and void…” .
    We know that God destroyed most of the human race and the face of earth in the time of Noah, considered destroying it again and raising a people from Moses, and in Revelations tells us he plans to destroy it again and create a new earth in the future. So why would a creationist find it difficult to believe that the earth may have been inhabited and destroyed by God before the time of Adam and then remade again? Maybe even several times before Adam?

    Right. The square root of -1 does not exist. Which is why it was my guess at the answer to Gonzo’s question as to how many left leaning groups lost their exempt status under Bush and Obama.

  • April 22, 2014 at 12:38pm

    My guess would be the square root of -1. And the IRS using nine and ten year old statements against then presidential candidate John Kerry as their justification now for revoking The Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty’s tax-exempt status is so far past the point of being dubious that it is vulgar. It seems to have gotten to the point that this administration knows that everybody knows they are corrupt so they aren’t really even trying to hide it anymore.

    Again with the term “Trespass Cattle”. So again I ask:
    If the Bundy cattle’s calves were born on that land then how can they be “trespass cattle” when they are “natural born citizen cattle”? And if the calves are natural born citizen cattle of this land shouldn’t we give the mother cattle citizenship too? Is it really American to “break-up families” by not naturalizing the citizenship of the mothers of the natural born citizen caves. If not, then by their logic should it be okay to start referring to the natural born citizen children of illegal alien parents as “Trespass Humans” along with their parents?

    @theridgeman
    I know there always has been and always will be a portion of the people who have a low intellect. And there is not much that can be done about that. But I too have marveled at how our supposed intellectual elite have become so ignorant and unrealistic. I used to believe it was the result of one generation of our universities being staffed with graduates who never left the academic system before training the next generation of university staff. And after three or four generations of one reality sheltered generation of academia passing the torch to the next, without ever having gone out into the real world and had their ideologies and social philosophies tried by reality, it’s resulted in a system that I would liken to being the equivalent of academic “inbreeding”. I still believe this to be a big factor but I also believe that for the last 30-40 years our educational institutions have intentionally been being “dumbed down” by design.

    Is it any surprise that a bunch of lazy liberal protestors who don’t work would think a horse shouldn’t have to work either?

    Hilarious! When Chris Hayes started getting is arse intellectually pummeled by Michele Fiore he couldn’t get himself out of the discussion quick enough. And Fiore had a very good point asking, “When have we ever used this kind of force for an unpaid bill?”. It’s looking more and more like this really was about corrupt politicians using the BLM as a tool for clearing out the territory for their own personal and dubious reasons. And this Mark Potok character from the Southern Poverty Law Center, MSNBC you’ve got to be kidding! That’s the best MSNBC could find to try to shore-up the Feds argument? To me the guy looks and sounds more like one of the History Channel’s “Down East Dickering” characters than a legal authority. Really, “Our jails and prisons are full of people who didn’t pay their taxes”?…ROFL at this guy!!!!!!

    @Shreknangst
    In my state once a landlord serves an eviction notice to a tenant the law considers the rent agreement broken and the tenant is no longer obligated by law to pay any further rent after the date that the eviction notice is served – regardless of how long it takes the system to evict the tenant from the premises.

    Good Points!

    Another huge difference is MLK Jr protested during the Eisenhower, Kennedy, and LB Johnson Presidencies. All three of these presidents supported and were friendly to the civil rights movement. If a black civil rights leader had protested exactly as MLK Jr. did but during the Presidencies of Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, or FD Roosevelt, the civil rights movement would have ended much differently.
