"Bunkersville, Nev., April 22, 2014- In this video Sheriff Mack breaks down the Bundy Ranch situation, while calling out Glenn Beck. He states that the Bundy family simply wants to be left alone and highlights how the federal government has run all 53 of the other cattle ranchers in Clark County out of business, while questioning how these types of authoritarian acts will subsequently affect the food supply system. Sheriff Mack goes on to question what this will do to liberty in America."

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”—John F. Kennedy
Those tempted to write off the standoff at the Bundy Ranch as little more than a show of force by militia-minded citizens would do well to reconsider their easy dismissal of this brewing rebellion. This goes far beyond concerns about grazing rights or the tension between the state and the federal government.
Few conflicts are ever black and white, and the Bundy situation, with its abundance of gray areas, is no exception. Yet the question is not whether Cliven Bundy and his supporters are domestic terrorists, as Harry Reid claims, or patriots, or something in between. Nor is it a question of whether the Nevada rancher is illegally grazing his cattle on federal land or whether that land should rightfully belong to the government. Nor is it even a question of who’s winning the showdown— the government with its arsenal of SWAT teams, firepower and assault vehicles, or Bundy’s militia supporters with their assortment of weapons—because if such altercations end in bloodshed, everyone loses.
What we’re really faced with, and what we’ll see more of before long, is a growing dissatisfaction with the government and its heavy-handed tactics by people who are tired of being used and abused and are ready to say “enough is enough.” And it won’t matter what the issue is—whether it’s a rancher standing his ground over grazing rights, a minister jailed for holding a Bible study in his own home, or a community outraged over police shootings of unarmed citizens—these are the building blocks of a political powder keg. Now all that remains is a spark, and it need not be a very big one, to set the whole powder keg aflame.
"He's a different voice in the arena that we don't traditionally hear," says Lorraine Miller, acting head of the NAACP, who expects to invite Paul to speak at the organization's July national conference in Las Vegas.
"He's an engaging guy — that's why we want to talk to him," Miller says. Miller is not the only black leader who has been intrigued by Paul, whose father, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul, had three unsuccessful presidential runs and amassed a fervent Libertarian following.
Many people are very hostile towards Classical Liberalism and libertarians because the social and economic liberty we desire in this world also has to come with personal responsibility. And many people are naturally terrified of responsibility, of paying their bills, getting food, healthcare, and education for themselves and their children. We all have this in common, we just have to learn that these responsibilities cannot be handed off to politicians who only care about getting elected.
Gun-grabbing fever has finally reached the conservative stronghold of Oklahoma.
An annual meet-and-greet at the Oklahoma State Capitol in Oklahoma City turned sour when an anonymous senator demanded that the 40 sheriffs in attendance remove their firearms.
But rather than disarm, the sheriffs voluntarily walked out.
When given the choice, Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert said, “We all packed up and left.”
“One of the senators, who they wouldn’t tell us, complained because we were armed in the building,” Colbert added. “Everybody in that building knew who we were.”
BIG business that is.
Regulations are tools that big companies use to squeeze out their competition and to protect themselves from consumer backlash.
1) Regulations restrict the number service providers in an industry by criminalizing those who cannot or will not comply.
-This helps assure that these companies get their price.
2) Regulations legalize certain amounts of harm that a company can cause a consumer.
-This makes it so that a consumer cannot bring a court action against a company who has harmed them so long as the harm complies with the regulations.
-Government argues that companies must be able to harm the consumer in order to have a robust economy, because a purely free market would be too restrictive.
A Free Society has the strictest regulations because all who initiate harm are fully liable to those they harm.
If much of the economic commentary in the mainstream media is to be believed, the rising inequality of wealth in Anglo societies and the crashing of our economy by the big banks and financial class make the problems of capitalism not just evident but self-evident.
Such claims are made, of course, against a background of hundreds of years of capitalist growth that has, for the overwhelming bulk of our population, made affordable the books that these claimants have presumably read, the computers on which they type, the Internet on which they do their research, the air-conditioning or central heating in the room where they do it, and even the food in their bellies – food of a variety and quality unparalleled in history.
But this background of utter success is taken so much for granted that it is almost entirely invisible.
One of the FED's justifications for raiding Ruby Ridge with deadly force was the misinformation that came from the local White Supremacist group.
None of it was true.
Innocent, defenseless people died.
DO NOT FEED THE FEDS.
Do not repeat misinformation from unauthorized groups.

I'm talking with Jerry right now. He said that a Law Enforcement Officer told him last night that Federal agents are being moved into Las Vegas.
The Officer claimed that there were about 140 agents in the city. Recon
sent in by Jerry found that there are more agents than can be counted!
The hotels are being filled with Federal Agents, Rangers and FBI
