Over the past few weeks, we have seen Nevada farmland turn into the greatest political theater on Earf. Republicans and Democrats are enjoying the free press while the media/government (they are 1 now, after-all) are busy trying to turn this into a racist and political issue. The truth is that this case has absolutely nothing to do with politics or race. Nevada just happens to be a swing state.
Clyde Bundy is not the enemy. Clyde is pointing out that the government is now the enemy. While I do not agree with all of Clyde’s opinions, I do appreciate the point he is making (as most any American should if they understood the real problem here). This has nothing to do with Clyde not paying his taxes or trying to “mooch” off the government (or us as taxpayers if you buy that shit…).
Cliven Bundy has claimed the land on which he was grazing his cattle belonged to the state, not the federal government, and that’s why he chose not to pay federal grazing fees. He tried to pay the state this money MANY times over.
“A federal court decided that it belonged to the federal government, and that position was upheld on appeal,” Napolitano said. “Now, that is a decision that never should have been made by a federal court, for two reasons. The federal government should never be in a position in which it is deciding on the extent of its own power … And secondly, when you have a dispute over real estate, there’s a universal principle of law everywhere in the United States of America … that real estate disputes are resolved by state courts.
This is no different than me paying my state business privilege taxes for a quarter century and then the state using that money to buy my business. Does anyone else not realize that the government is the one that is overstepping here? Are you too ignorant from the media’s constant bigotry and racist attacks to see the REAL story? Of course you are. The koolaid is too good to put down.
This morning I read where Clyde said “negro” and was shunned. I also read where he compared our government to plantation owners. Clyde certainly isn’t much of a speaker. However, the words he said are spot on, IMO. Blacks on welfare are no different than “blacks picking cotton.” Seriously folks. He has a damn good point. I suppose blacks still support the government and Democratic Party because they are awaiting their ’40 acres and a mule’. If not for that, it baffles me just like homosexuals being pro Hillary/pro-Democrat even though her husband Bill was the one that damned gays in the first place (DOMA).
We should also understand that the government at any time could just place a lien against the property and when Cliven passes the government would get it’s money but the government swooped in with snipers, dogs and tasers to collect. What’s the hurry to get the money? I keep waiting on Obama to step out in the rose garden and say, “Cliven could have been my son…..”
Hypocrisy is the name of the game. Keep bashing those of us who are trying to protect our country and you will soon learn why socialism always fails…..BECAUSE very soon the have’s will get tired of taking care of the have not’s. You can bank on that. Lord knows I’m nearly there myself.
Rant over. Back to supporting the millions who are clowning on Clyde…
Oh yeah….As for the REAL story here…..well, most anyone who follows politics knows that Harry Reid has made his fortune through uncanny stock market fortune and shady land deals in Nevada. This was really just all about taking care of one of his biggest contribution hares by changing the environmental zoning to allow a new solar project next spring (hence the sudden rush to get Clyde off the property). Unfortunately, Harry must have forgotten that the tortoise beats the hare in the end…
This is Paul Harvey….Good Day.
