desert tortoise gets its 15 minutes of world wide fame. Too bad it was because the critter became a pawn in a fed vs. individual game of who's got the power, who owns the land and water.Poor things, they don't deserve the lies.
Cliven Bundy and family may have had grandfathered in rights to graze cattle on 'disputed' land? But the feds did not have the right to take anything from them or anybody without a trial with a jury of their peers.
The mainstream media is barely covering the siege going on in Nevada...yet. Snipers and a roped off free speech area on private land? The police state makes their own rules at the point of gun. When Shawn Hannity interviews Bundy and runs with the story, it makes you go hmmmm. Many outlets are suggesting that this may be a new Ruby Ridge or even a Waco in what some may hope is a self-fulfilling prophecy. It would be good for ratings.
Let's hope it doesn't go that far. It may be a test to see how the public reacts. If everything dies down without incident, it will be on to the next theft. Then again, who knows what the ultimate agenda may be?
If anyone has any thoughts on this event, please share.......
