While I’m on the subject of outrages du jour could someone explain the Cliven Bundy story to me? The way I understand it is that here’s a guy out in Nevada who’s been grazing his stock on federal land for the last couple of decades without paying the grazing fees he owes. Ignore however high-handed the federal government has been in dealing with him or the extent of federal lands in the West. Those are peripheral issues.
How is this guy any different from a tax cheat or welfare queen? Am I missing something?
