After all these things took place, the Bundys' participated in the take over of a government building at the Malfleur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. During that period, they essentially destroyed and ransacked the inside of that building.

These people are not heroes battling big government. They are criminals who believe they have a right to steal the use of public lands, occupy, and destroy public property to make a point.

The Bundys' may not deserve to be in jail forever, but they have committed criminal offenses.

I cannot speak to their health or the medical care they are receiving. I am generally familiar with the medical care a number of prisoners receive here in prison and in county jails. Its not perfect by a longshot, but its much better than the poor and homeless get in our country. Inmates will always criticize the care they are getting. In their mind, it could always be better.


That is absurd! I'll have TRUMP throw you in jail for 2 years and not let you have a speedy trail. Holding you as guilty, until I say you can try to prove your innocents, under the conditions I set. No, you cannot walk free in society, until I say so. Then come trail, I will not allow you to use the Constitution to defend yourself.

Is that a deal?

Well, if what you say is true... it looks like trump has allowed them to languish in jail since January. What say you to that?

Simply sounds like Bundy could not or would not make bail. Welcome to the real cost of being poor.


If I were the BLM manager I would have rounded up all of the cattle on BLM land and sold them for hamburger as partial payment of the debt.

Trump is limited on the information he sees, these days.

Fox isn't covering the Bundy trail.

Have you ever figured out how the governments should pay for the services that they provide to the citizens if there is no way to collect taxes? Hold bake sales? What?

So, the prez can't be bothered to learn about anything unless it is on fox? Sounds about right.

And, hows about you complain to fox to see if they will start covering it so that the prez will "see" it?

These people are loved in their communities.

Appears he made his money milking the foster care system.
