The Bundy Bunch: Citizens for Constitutional Freedom

Rancher Welfare

The Bundy family is back, once again hiding behind a fake constitutional argument that because they raise cattle the US owes them a living by allowing free grazing.

They have taken over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon and are engaged in an armed stand-off with authorities.

The kinder and gentler feds are taking a wait-and-see approach while the “modern day Shays” freeze their asses off in Bum F**K, Egypt.

Daniel Shays


Long ago, in 1786, Daniel Shays, of rural Massachusetts, set the standard, at least historically, for disgruntled folk to up and take control of things, if only for a awhile.

Who stopped Shays and his ruffians?

Their fellow citizens, acting as Massachusetts militia under General William Shephard.

Shays’ rebellion was what Thomas Jefferson was referring to when he wrote, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

His “patriots or tyrants” depending on your view, were crushed by their fellow citizens, a point surely worth remembering.

Raise some hell but you better watch out.

Equal Justice?

Black Cows

Black Cows

Imagine some armed black folk taking over a federal building someplace and demanding anything.

Holy shit.

Do we even allow black folk to have guns?

This latest Oregon-based white boy-militia-frat party puts the farce of American justice on full display.

There is some hope because, as with Shays, the locals ain’t too keen on the rebellion.

The New York Times reports a citizen as saying, “They’re here for their own agenda, not for the people of Harney County at all.”

US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts says, “We are a nation of laws.”

Is that really the case when urban justice is by default so often lethal and rancher justice is “Now boys, you just settle down and go on home”?

Them city folk be need’en to get some cows, I’m thinkin.

    If you have no idea what these men are actually fighting for, why are you bashing them online? They aren’t askimg for free grazing rights, as you say in your article. Educate yourself or shut up

    “Do we even allow black folks to have guns?” … Not If you’re a good Democrat after the Civil War. You disarmed those Freedmen so other Democracts could harass and pillage w/ impunity. The black men that did use their God given 2nd. Amnd. rights to protect themselves and their families made the Northern libs. too “uncomfortable” to support financially. I’ll take Robert F. Williams over Sharpton or J.J. any day.

  • Tom says:

    Bundy’s group needs to be arrested and thrown in jail. This is a land of laws and they need to be upheld or every fringe nut case group will be doing the same thing. If they want to protest federal policies they can do it like the rest of us.

  • Lee says:

    Like organized labor supported the occupy movement?

  • Charles says:

    Men must obey YAHWEH GODs law and any man law THAT is in conflict with YAHWEH then must not be allowed to be a law over YAHWEH s people.

  • Charles says:

    It’s either thow shall not or let men deceive us. Government can not be a fair bussiness. If GOD were fair no one would survive his punishment. The only way is repentance forgiveness and love. Not confront shoot kill and say deservedly so. No one deserves to be harmed by GOVERNMENT. Property taxes r harmful. Worst tax ever.
