Jcboy. - hope you don't mind me borrowing your term, captures the Bundy makeup.
One wonders, however, how the armies of April will react to a Las Vegas TV station's revelation that much of Bundy's personal saga is make-believe. Grazing Golden Butte since 1877? Not quite. His father bought the Bunkerville ranch in 1948; they began renting BLM land in 1954.
Chinese businessmen made a deal with Reid's kid to buy federally owned land for $4 million bucks. Land valued at $40 million. Problem is that land has a desert tortoise on it. That means the BLM has to find new land for the tortoise and that is Bundy's land. So, because Reid's son made a business deal and the BLM, led by a Reid crony, now need Bundy's cattle off the land.
That's the only reason anyone even knows Bundy's name. He wouldn't allow the Federal govt to pull that crap.
Reid's fingerprints are all over this and if you don't believe it, or you want to ignore it, whatever. Just don't lose view of what is really happening.
Raise your hand if this little revelation surprises you.

If you’re a citizen living in or around Bunkerville, Nevada right now, you’re probably rather concerned about the armed thugs that have taken over the area. That’s what Nevada Rep. Steven Horsford reports in a letter he sent to the Clark County Sheriff.
In the letter, Horsford says that his constituents in the Bunkerville area are living in fear. Out of their misplaced desire to protect racist rancher Cliven Bundy, right-wing militia groups have set up armed checkpoints on highways and roads. They are illegally stopping vehicles and demanding drivers show their IDs to prove they are residents before they are allowed to pass. Militia members are also intimidating people around schools and churches.
Bundy denies that militia members set up checkpoints on public property. He said armed guards do stop and screen visitors at the gate to his ranch.
A group of militia members who stopped a neighboring rancher trucking cattle last Saturday to Arizona, about 12 miles to the east, were helping his son, Ryan Bundy, the family patriarch said. They wanted to ensure that Bundy cattle weren't being rustled.
embers of an embattled Bunkerville ranch family and their supporters gathered at Las Vegas police headquarters Friday to file police reports against federal agents and others involved in last month’s failed cattle roundup in northeastern Clark County.
About two dozen people, including several members of the Bundy family, filed reports alleging crimes ranging from assault and threats with a deadly weapon to impersonating a police officer.
