Sen. Harry Reid vs. Bundy

I'd like to write what I really think of Sen. Harry Reid and his comment that the Cliven Bundy supporters are "domestic terrorists". If I did, I'd probably incur that wrath of the N.S.A. and the F.B.I. and the U.S. Marshals.

Bundy has been using the land for 100 years, but Reid & Son apparently want a Chinese solar plant in the desert scrub, not cattle.

Who are the real terrorists in this deal?

Interesting case. I'm still undecided as to who is wrong in it. Right now I am siding with the rancher.

Big Daddy, have you seen the letter purportedly written by the rancher's daughter, detailing 100 years of land use there? Bundy was paying fees to the BLM, which the BLM was to use to maintain the land and fences but apparently began using in other ways. So Bundy stopped paying and fixed the fences himself. And other things.

No, I will have to look to for it
