This is a sad and pivotal day for America. We, as usual, sit over our devices with coffee spewing our half researched conclusions at the screen ...that brought the news. We think we're with them, or maybe not. We don't want to loose what we do or don't have. Surely the(our) Gov will do the right thing, right?
I know I'm old. I know that after thirty plus years of fighting this tyranny and constantly being squashed by a faction of my own Gov, I'm impatient and disillusioned, no, much more than disillusioned, disgusted.
The Government's ( low life public trough leech) employees have lied to my face. They've lied on paper. They've lied to you. They've lied to the press. They've lied to the nation.
Now a patriot has given all to get the truth out. That same truth the casually interested jumped on with their unearned opinions,hindering forward motion of a segment of Americans being heard. That's what this is all about, BEING HEARD.
"Yea, but taking over a Gov installation is no way to get people behind you."
Well, over a thirty year battle Wayne Hage waged against tyrannies of his Gov, maybe three percent of the press told his story, the rest came right out of the Govs press release rooms.
The Dan sisters decades battle couldn't find ears.
Raymond Yowell's ordeals carries on after decades. He can't get heard and the Gov lawyers (on our tax dollars) stall and wait out abused citizens bank accounts.
Or, when overwhelming proof from private sector range managers, professors of land management, ranchers, natives, representatives and politicians all came away with complete opposite of what the one low level bureaucrat who is a scum puppet blatantly stealing but one more ranch. We've tried to get you to listen but you wouldn't.
Two years ago an attorney, expert and local leader on Federal abuses on "public lands" ( who lost his life for his effort )organized a cross country' Gandi salt march like, pony express like, horseback ride from the Pacific to the Atlantic baring petitions from ranchers, sportsmen, native Americans environmentalist and others tired of trying to make known our plight of an ever increasingly over baring and oppressive Gov agency. Seventeen days later the tired but determined ( no doubt a record for the fastest horseback cross country trip) group passed off their( all's) concerns to a bunch of politicians aides. No one listened.
Year after year we've tried to get America to listen to our concerns but a tax backed press agency feeds and
What Ammon and LaVoy ( and the other patriots) have done is against the Govs rules. Not law. (They make the rules without any process and change them at will) Even if it was a law, so is jay walking and murder. One a little more severe than the other. I hope you agree. To what degree of breaking a rule justifies a Gov thug to murder an American peacefully protesting Gov over reach? Don't you see the irony? They aren't rioting, looting, setting fires or steaming hate. They have done their best to let everyone know that they were there to peacefully protest against their Gov's double jeopardy sending of two ranchers back to prison after having paid their fines and doing the time ordered by the court on the charge of arson. Two low level, interest conflicted tax sucking duck watchers decided to have them sent back to prison as domestic terrorists! (Read about the judge)
You see, the ranchers had set a back fire to protect their buildings and equipment. This is and has been used as a fire fighting and management tool by the BLM for many years. The fire jumped the road and burned under 150 acres of Fed land. The Feds on the other hand have burned hundreds of thousands of acres of Fed lands, thousands of private acres, homes, equipment and ruined lives. Not one toad terd licking, mutent, tax tick Fed was held accountable and no restitution has been paid.(burned them out!)
The protesters picked a little used or visited Gov ( tax payer) building. They threatened no one. They're doing their best to assure those locals who feel uneasy they will not be the threat. The community has gotten behind them.
It has been the powerful Gov thugs that have caused what fear the community has experienced.
"But they are armed!"
Armed yes, legally. Why would America have doubt if that is legal or not? No matter where one stands on that issue, it is legal. So is, like it or not, abortion, civil rights, women's rights, child protection laws, etc etc.
"If they didn't want trouble, why bring weapons?"
Kent State, Waco, Ruby Ridge ...
Would you want to go up against Gov murderers without any chance, like so many have? They kill ya armed or not.
A man has given his life in hopes this Gov tyranny will be exposed. Please look into it for yourself, past the Gov press releases. We must be able to hold these buzzard scat, bile spewing, murdering Gov thugs accountable.
We must demand to see the videos of the murder. We all know that is standard operating proceedure, we also know they will want to hide them.
If you do the research and you agree the Gov agency has over reached its intended and given powers, please put pressure on your so called reps in Washington to get off there no account politician asses and do what is right for the country, the citizens and the West.
Call em, text em, Twitter em and whatever else folks do now days. Question your sheriff and your Governor as to where they stand. Get hold of your news papers and TV news depts and ask that they not be so biased, dig a little, at least attempt to bring the whole story.
If you've never gotten involved with an issue, this is the one you should. Let's be on the right side of history on this one.
This is written with heavy heart and a stronger resolution.
PLEASE, don't let this great patriot's ultimate sacrifice be for naught.
