I have just read 2 articles on the takeover of land and cattle in Arizona. And that’s what it is. The land that the Bundy Family has been grazing, since the 1870’s, is now overrun by agents and armed forces from state, Federal and out of state militia’s. They are using helicopters, and other equipment. They have so far rounded up a little over 200 of the 900 cattle. Not only are they running them, and abusing the cattle, they are tasering anyone who dares to protest. Where are the animal rights activists. One witness describes a scene with a calf, that didn’t know what to do, and a helicopter hovered and sounded a horn, until the frightened calf started to run. We are paying for this government circus! It’s costing around 3 million dollars for this. And we are paying for it as taxpayers!
Remember the movie Billy Jack? Why use a movie to make a point? It’s similar in circumstance. Government gone wild, and thinks it’s bigger than the people. Only in the real life case, it’s the Federal Government, someone we have entrusted our Country to. Someone we thought would protect our rights. Someone our ancestors fought to put in power. And they are weighed in the balance and found wanting. They have their New World Order. It’s time for American’s to wake up. This should make even the secular squeemish! Remember Pastor Neimoller’s poem from WW2? First they came? You should read it, because unless you speak out before you know it, that poem will be about you. ‘There will be no one left to speak out.’
Is this what they’re doing ? Is this what we’re becoming? This is not about grazing, it’s not about money. It’s not about a turtle, it’s about water, and minerals. This is about Government out of control. This is the beginning’s of government taking over our lands, our rights, and our livelihoods. You can wake up now, and speak out, or you can wake up when it’s over and wonder what happened.
“The battle’s been going on for 20 years,” Cliven Bundy said. “What’s happened the last two weeks, the United States government, the bureaus are getting this army together and they’re going to get their job done and they’re going to prove two things. They’re going to prove they can do it, and they’re gonna prove that they have unlimited power, and that they control the policing power over this public land. That’s what they’re trying to prove.”
The family said their son, Dave Bundy, was arrested for taking photos of state road 170, which had been closed by BLM. Dave was aggressively apprehended by officials for “failure to comply with multiple requests by BLM law enforcement to leave the temporary closure area on public lands.”
Carol Bundy said five agents took Dave and “threw him on the ground.”
“One put his knee on his head, the other put his boot on his head and pushed him into the gravel,” she said. “He’s got quite a bruised head. Just bruised him up pretty good.”
It’s ironic that our tax dollars are paying for this debacle. We’re supporting a government no better than communistic, dictatorships. Why, why are we silent?
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.
