I'm not sure about that. I heard it from someone on the way to the mailbox.

It's in hard copy on the ground next to Mom's mailbox. Drinking Beverage

What did these clowns even think they were going to accomplish? Blink

Excuse my ignorance—this story has yet to break Downunder—but are Ammon Bundy and Ryan Bundy the late Ted's siblings?

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

No, they are a group of weapon toting guys who claim the right to any federal lands and they occupied a wildlife refuge in Oregon.

Y'all Qaeda....

That one still cracks me up.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Oregon standoff (probably) ended




Here's a video of a couple of these folks at a press conference. There area few more available on YouTube if you search for Bundy or Oregon Militia. One thing I get from these videos is that they are sincere. It's not a publicity stunt or a put-on.

I do not support armed overthrow of the government. I won't dismiss these people as insane or stupid though. I am very aware that national news coverage rarely includes their statements even though they made themselves available. Occupy Wall Street got the same treatment - coverage of the protest, but not of the message. I am not saying OWS and the Oregon Militia are comparable in other ways, just that the news coverage is similarly one-sided and that makes me suspicious about what isn't being said. That's why I prefer to watch these videos and find out what these people actually have to say for themselves.

I'm not sure about that. I heard it from someone on the way to the mailbox.

Last I heard as of this morning, it's still just one dead, but three more turned themselves in.

Well, I've heard muttering among the right-wing nut jobs about "something something civil war has started". This might be some Hutaree level of stupid, hoping to spur a bunch of crazies into starting a war, nation-wide.

Vanilla ISIS was already mentioned. While Y'all Qaeda is good, I've also heard YeeHawd, Yokel Haram, and the Cowliphate.

Yesterday, I thought up Bucko Haram, but it's not as funny.

RE: Oregon standoff (probably) ended
I have a friend. He is part of militia. He is in Oregon now.
According to him Feds take away farmers lands, kill cows by burning and poisoning them.
I really don't know if this is true. I don't know what really is going on.
But I believe that the right way to fight against this is to elect governors who won't allow Feds to take over state lands. Feds will always win against protestors.
P.S. This is what happens here in Idaho. We have lots of beautiful lands were people hunt, do fishing and enjoy the nature. One day we would come back as usual and we see metal fence and a sign "no trespassing".
Feds take over the land and people can't enjoy it any more. They grab more and more. Later BLM will make money of it.
People are losers, BLM, Obama and Read, Trump, Hillary (crony capitalists) are the winners.

English is my second language.
I AM DEPLORABLE AND IRREDEEMABLE
