That's what Boston Children's wants... if she dies before the Courts decide to let her out, there's no witnesses.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

NateTech Re:Militia, then vs now (1633 comments)

It's fun to watch you behave like a child, but seriously... Adult conversation would be much more intelligent.

Yelling "la la la, I can't hear you" is precious, but really not up to the level necessary to straighten out Federal Government overreach and over-spending, without requirement that they even have a budget...

If you just vote to print money... and use it to arm Agencies who have no need of weapons, special assault vehicles, blah blah... and then act like you need more tax money from people to do it, when you've over-spent so badly you're just barely paying the interest on the credit card...

It's time to force FedGov to live within their means. This event wouldn't have even occurred (nor anyone cared about it) if they couldn't fund an army of BLM people via debt.

Enjoy the Oligarchy if you like that sort of thing.

I'm more interested in what vested interest you have in this whole thing? Seem pretty riled up for a $330,000 bill.

200 armed agents to collect? And now evidence that they just shot cattle multiple times just to play hut-hut with their guns?

Let's see... myth about Sharpton? It's public record that he's roughly $3.5M behind on taxes. That's not really debatable. Federal employees? Owe over $3B in back taxes. That's also not debatable.

So the idea that folks are all uppity about "the rule of law" is just silly. If they were, they'd have been demanding 200 armed agents go get all that money, and billions more, owed.

Thousands, if not tens of thousands of businesses "ignore court orders" every day. Whoop dee doo. We don't send people armed with automatic weapons to collect. We garnish wages, seize assets in bank accounts, etc.

I see only one group out of control here. BLM. No need to have armed BLM agents, period... and definitely no need to defend them online. Out of control pretend "law enforcement". They can call the Sheriff and let the locals deal with it. Allowing some bureaucrat to call up an Army with no checks-and-balances in the voting booth, is not only ridiculous, it's dangerous.

You weaken your replies by ranting. Try adult conversation.

What do wing nut freedom blogs have to do with the facts of the case? Mr. Bundy, family, and staff forbade the carrying of firearms by the people on his property.

Eric Parker wants to lay on a public bridge on a public road and aim weapons at people, he should probably be arrested. He had nothing to do with Mr. Bundy's situation other than a misguided attempt to "help". He should not have been there, and he should not have taken up arms.

Please show evidence he was asked to be on that road by anyone actually involved in this measly $300,000 civil case. (Yes, $300,000. The $1M number bandied about by the "rule of law" whiners, is after exorbitant "penalties" that any business would make disappear upon settlement with a good lawyer.)

We have hundreds if not thousands of tax dodgers who owe far more than Mr. Bundy. Al Sharpton, comes to mind. $3.5M. He gets the highest "law enforcement" appointee (who illegally ran guns to murderers in Mexico by forcing law-abiding gun stores to sell them, I might add... great law enforcement there...) to speak at his conventions.

Can you find an IRS Top Ten Most Wanted list? I can't. Probably has something to do with who's on it, and which politicians they pay off. FBI Top Ten Most Wanted, no problem. IRS? Nope.

If you're so concerned about Mr. Bundy's back taxes, perhaps you should get an army to surround Al Sharpton's house with 200 rifle-carrying soldiers.

The "BLM Action" currently has an estimated cost of $2M to the U.S. taxpayer. Let's see... if I were asked if I wanted $2M spent to bother a rancher in the Nevada desert for a $330K bill... nope. Not worth it.

Someone else wants that land, and someone at BLM ordered up an Army. Interesting how we haven't heard who that was yet, isn't it? Who at BLM has the authority to assemble a standing army? I'd like to know.

Such veracity. Didn't you claim that Mr. Bundy had none? Pot. Kettle. Black. I see.

I don't care who's egging it on. I've been listening to only interviews with the man and his family, themselves.

Those turning it into a 2A issue, are nut bags on both sides. Including you.

If anything it was a 1A issue... "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

And possibly a 3A issue... "No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law."

What "Hannity" or any other idiot turns it into is none of my concern as a Citizen. What is my concern as a Citizen is, is whether or not I find it appropriate for Federal armies to steal private property and show up in military dress and fully armed as a military to do so.

Since we're an Oligarchy and headed worse in that direction, my answer is no.

If you believe that, and I don't...

We as a People don't send 200 armed agents to collect $300K bills. Nor do I have any interest in funding such.

Staged. Bundy and family banned carrying of weapons on their land and made folks disarm. The photo from the bridge is a single photo, no one can find any attribution for it, nor Copyright notice (interesting, considering all of the outlets that are using it, they apparently don't have permission of the photographer under the law), and hell... it's the world of Photoshop. The *key* photo for all the whiny media outlets seems to have appeared from nowhere with no attribution.

Which even if true, means it's inept to send 200 armed soldiers to collect. That's not how we handle debts in the U.S.

If it were, we'd have surrounded Al Sharpton's house with 200 armed agents many years ago for the $3.5M in back-taxes he owes. And we probably wouldn't want the top law-enforcement person in the country speaking at his events.

BLM already ran off over 50 other ranchers in the area. Pretty sure Bundy's "damage" was a lot less than the 50 other ranches combined in the late 80s and early 90s when they started claiming the land was theirs to manage instead of the State of Nevada's.

How Colleges Are Pushing Out the Poor To Court the Rich

NateTech Re:Goodbye (668 comments)

Run to the benefit of the people... by whom, and what's their incentive to do so? Do they eschew personal gain in this "process"?

(I already know the answer. Let's see if you can figure it out. Do your Progressive "leaders" eat any better than you do? Do they have fancy houses or cars? Maybe a free ride on a private jet at your expense from time to time?)

Machine Gun Fire From Military Helicopters Flying Over Downtown Miami

NateTech Re:Provoking (1130 comments)

Define "threat". That's hard enough in a foreign land where folks are fighting in urban areas. It'll be different when the "target" is pleading for their life in English and everyone else is screaming "murderer" at the military because their "threats" are unarmed.

Ubuntu Community Manager: RMS's Post Seems a Bit Childish To Me

NateTech Re:RMS is right (529 comments)

What you're trying to say succinctly, is that Bruce profits from the confusion created by open vs. closed source licensing and all the legal issues surrounding such.

http://perens.com/business/consulting - In this, you are correct sir. His website says he charges a $450/hr consultation fee.

More confusion, more perceived need. Attack!
