    Thank you for your message Glenn. Your dream reminds me of the song “Long Black Train” by Josh Turner, about having faith in God and not to go riding on that long black train driven by the Devil. I’m glad you found your way through that storm and gained so much more.

    Happy Easter to you and yours!

    @SkruP.C.cowardice – I see your point, really, and thank you for being rational with your response. With this particular situation, however, that has not happened. That’s not to say that it can’t happen at another time and place…and let’s pray it doesn’t! If it did though, that’s another story entirely.

    This is just not the perfect example of the government invading personal property – it’s more of a case of why the government is so selective in who they pick to go after. If Bundy had been paying his grazing fees, then there would have been more backbone to his case. If they had come onto his personal property, however, that would have been another story entirely. Reid just threw out some more bait though – he wants a reaction.

    @Kenbridgeguy – I’m referring to how the group should be seen upon the feds first coming upon them – if it were to happen again, that is. The video above showed the people sitting around, chatting, and eating. Disarming them is another story, but that didn’t happen here, at least not yet.

    I agree with the assessment that the government is picking and choosing how to enforce the law. Bundy did not pay his fees, landing him in trouble, but is the government also going after those who don’t pay taxes, or deporting illegal aliens? The list goes on. That being said, everyone, especially Bundy’s supporters, must maintain their cool. Read on.

    Harry Reid is pure evil to the core and will, I believe, do anything at this point to taunt this group, hoping they will give the government a reason to step in. Remember Van Jones uttering the words “bottom up, top down, inside out”? Think back.

    “Bottom up (angry protesters/citizens), top down (government), inside out (chaos)” refers to a strategy in which there is so much anger and confusion among the people that the government, of course, would have to step in and maintain order. Keep thinking.

    This is what Reid wants – the label “domestic terrorist” was another “nudge.” This is what Glenn has been warning against. Read on.

    Be assertive and be defensive. Think before you act or speak. Hold tight to your arms but don’t shoot a target that’s not clear. Don’t give the government a reason to “retaliate” – leave no loopholes. If the feds show up again, stand, remain calm, chat, sing, eat, and/or pray – those agents might very well not want to even be there. If Reid himself shows up, be as pleasant as possible and outsmart him with reason – show him up for the evil he is…and make his blood boil. Don’t

    Correction – “…in the government’s “bottom up, top down, inside out…”

    @MasterJoshua7 – “Bottom up, top down, inside out.” Remember that one? Harry Reid is pure evil no matter what, but he’s getting exactly what he wants and too many here don’t see it.

    I don’t know if you’ve seen “Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones” but at the end of the movie, when Count Dooku tells the future Emperor Palpatine (current Chancellor of the Republic while hiding his Sith identity) that the war has begun, Palpatine responds “Excellent. Everything is going exactly as planned” or something like that. It troubles me to think that Obama, Soros, Reid, or whoever is pulling strings here is thinking the exact same thing, grinning smugly from ear to ear.

    Folks – please think clearly here. You’re pawns in the government’s the “bottom up, top down, inside out” strategy that they’ve been playing. You’re being had.

    @shogun459 – Exactly!

  • April 18, 2014 at 12:02am

    @conservatype – Somehow that seems to be the case with many on the left/progressive side – you can even see it manifested in their faces. It’s amazing.

    @DSTSS2010 – Sadly this is true – interesting viewpoint. It’s also the people who don’t get out there and vote to begin with.

    @FishingWithKittens – I have a feeling these troubles won’t be over when Obama is out because they were there before he was even elected President. However, re-claiming the Senate and keeping the House this year would at least be one small step in the right direction. Keep praying.

    Harry Reid is nothing more than pure evil, and his time in public service can’t come soon enough. However, did it occur to anyone here that the reaction to the Bundy situation is exactly what he wanted? Did it ever occur to anyone that the government might have sent in these agents as a test? I’m not saying what Bundy did was right – he should have been paying his fees for grazing on federal land. Perhaps the way the situation was handled by the government was overkill – after all, there are others out there who don’t pay their fees (i.e. taxes) either, or are here illegally, and should be dealt with. On the other hand, the agents are not necessarily bad people – they go where they’re sent and might not have necessarily wanted to be there. Both sides must show restraint and not act purely on anger.

    Sadly, the vitriol in response to Glenn’s simple suggestion of not resorting to violence was exactly what Reid needed, and now it’s out there in print. Be assertive, be vigilant, be defensive, and hold tight to your arms, but don’t shoot at a fuzzy target – something is not right here this particular situation. It’s a set-up.

    Think before you act, think before you speak, read before you respond, and always watch what the other hand is doing. Don’t lose common sense. If anything, this is “the time” to show restraint when faced with conflict. If the feds come back, just stand, pray, meditate, and sing – Reid would hate that, don’t you think?

    Great idea! The stories are amazing.

    How utterly ignorant – this group, especially those two women (the black sweater and the green shirt), sure do talk the talk but I sincerely hope that they nor their loved ones never find themselves in a situation where they wish they had a gun. If only there was an armed guard at the Aurora movie theater, Newtown, Columbine, Virginia Tech and more – one bullet or two just might have saved many innocent lives, if not all of them.

    Sounds good – but don’t forget mom dealing with the matter either.

    What a crock this pamphlet is. If I am verbally attacked, start by sternly telling that bully they’re sick and to stay away. If they push, you push back. If they push harder, unleash fury. In any case, tell your parents/guardians, have them visit the school, tell the dean, and enjoy the dejected look on the bully’s face when they’re called into the dean’s office knowing they’ve been caught.

    There is nothing like a good cold chocolate milk – takes care of the sweet craving while still getting your milk. While it might be a good idea to get the white milk now and then instead of chocolate, to ban it altogether to battle an alleged obesity epidemic is ridiculous. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy my chocolate milk if I bought school lunch in the mid-90s, but sometimes it would come with a good deep-dish pizza, hot dog, burger, Spaghetti O’s, or, sloppy joes, and maybe some salad, all for $1. Oh the horror!

    @mike79 – Well said. What Glenn is saying does not necessarily have to apply just to the ranch situation, but to our everyday lives. If anything, this situation has brought these emotions to the surface, and the left/progressives will feed on those emotions like roaches drawn to sweets on a buffet.

    @2GodBeTheGlory – I’m just talking about common sense and maintaining levelheadedness instead of letting anger consume us and drive our behavior. I don’t understand how that is twisting the Bible, nor did I even bring the Bible into this. Anger seems to be a common emotion expressed over the last couple of days, and we cannot let that happen. God is our supreme leader, but we are only human. He guides us, but it is us who have to make the choices and it is us who are ultimately responsible for our actions. I did not ask you to “follow” me, nor would I. Glenn does not either – he provides information, but it is up to us to do our homework. Again, each of us as an individual is responsible for our actions – don’t let fear and anger cloud your ability to reason.

    Poor boy! It stinks that the tarp failed but good to know he was tagged and released. I hope he stays safe – he’s a handsome bear.

    Congratulations Glenn! Best of luck with this new venture.
