In looking more at this issue, I found that Bundy had lost his argument.... with Clark County as well (so much for agreeing with "local authorities"). Everything you need to know about the long fight between Cliven Bundy and the federal government

Did anyone else see this yet?
Rush Limbaugh got PUNKED big time the other day, and it's pretty damn funny.
He got OWNED.

Had not heard rush for a long time

Seemed like he is living in an alternate reality
Delusional

If I did not know who he was
I could believe he lives in a psych ward

How to deal with people who live in alternate realities, who seem like they could be in a psych ward, but instead are participating members of society?

I often wonder, is the human condition getting worse? Or do we pass through life as in a fog, continually rediscovering scenes of the insanity play as they emerge, thinking that they are new phenomenon only because we have largely forgotten the previous scenes?

I think the GOP is suffering from dimentia: slowly losing its grip on reality from spending time in another dimension.

i listen more often than i care to admit

here is how he works ... there is a presidential bash engine ... he takes anything resembling a fact and feeds it in ... out comes the hamburger of his reality

unfortunately i am convinced he actually believes what he says

today he amazed me ... he talked about American exceptionalism and yet he had no clue what it was .... have to guess he never read de Tocqueville ... simply amazing

Rick started this thread on April 11, 2014. A month and a half have passed. So ... where's the justice? Did Bundy win? Would it be OK for other Americans to flout the law? I don't get it.

There does seem to be a dearth of information on the subject. As near as I can tell, the FBI and DOJ are looking into the armed resistance stuff and the BLM is pursuing a contempt of court judgment against Bundy for which he could be arrested and jailed.

I seriously doubt that no further action will be the result, but the action could be glacial in speed. The guns aren't going to help when it is the IRS rounding up Bundy's non-cow assets. I would assume that Bundy is already on a cash-and-barter-only economy, what with IRS vacuums in any bank accounts he might have and even the cattle sale ring removed from his use in generating income. Remember, the cows are now effectively owned by the U.S. Gummit, which was rounding them up to sell and recover the judgment. Anyone who buys them from Bundy will be buying stolen federal property, unless they give the money to the court. Kinda impacts the market value, wot?

As for the gun-pointers, their piper payment moments may come when a county sheriff pulls them over for a taillight out and then says, "Hmmmm, seems to be a federal warrant against you for threatening an officer of the law with a deadly weapon in Nevada back in April... would you please step out of the car?"

If things go right with this, there may not be much for news.
