Sen. Reid seems to forget who first brought in arms to a situation involving cattle. Yes, cattle. The Federal government went to Nevada to "settle" a grazing dispute, carrying rifles and wearing camo. That looks to me like provocation.

The whole situation smacks of heavy handed Federal aggression. And Reid has aligned himself with the
As one observer wrote to Reid via the Las Vegas Sun newspaper:
"The militia men aren't the terrorist here you are, you sent Federal Agents down there with assault weapons dressed in camo fatigues, fake beards , fake ID's , these are supposed to be BLM officers? All the BLM officers running around in their lil pickups out in the desert look nothing like the goons you sent as henchmen. You sir are the epitomy of what terrorism is, you just hide it behind some stupid turtle and conservation act. Forcing a rancher off federal land smells really fishy if you're so concerned about it."
Bundy's supporters, meanwhile, continue to grow. Today a big bunch of 'em are throwing a shindig at the Bundy Ranch. My good friends Madison Rising will be there. I asked their manager, my pal Rich Mgrdechian, if he's concerned about safety.
Said Rich: "The boys will be fine."
They always are! Their music rocks, and is just the thing to keep Harry Reid's "domestic terrorists" entertained while supporting an issue that is much larger than the travails of a single cattleman.
