This Is How The Government Should Deal With The Bundy Occupation In Oregon

Armed Right-Wing Militia Takes Over Federal Building In Oregon, Conservatives Couldn’t Care Less

A couple of years ago, the media was all over a story out of Nevada where Cliven Bundy and his supporters were in a standoff with the federal government over a land use dispute.
