Cliven is a ‘taker’.
16,000 + Ranchers pay the grazing fee.
He has decided that he is above the law.
Recently, events have occurred which would indicate a perfect storm, which would help create the right wing fantasy of the Rapture. Conditions for this “final judgement” are ripe when you mix heavily armed anti-government insurrectionists, white supremacists with shotguns and Mormons who do not believe in the laws of the United States but believe Joseph Smith looked into a hat with a peep stone to translate scriptures from gold plates. Culminating with the Blood Moon of Monday night’s lunar eclipse, fundamentalists believe we have achieved the perfect conditions for the Apocalypse. That’s the ultimate goal of the folks who have made life in America unlivable with the deplorable legislation they’ve enacted; they seek to destroy the environment, contaminate drinking water, eliminate the middle-class altogether and create a theocratic vision for America that would make Jefferson weep. This is the right-wing fringe element hard at work, making America just a little less civilized…

‘From today’s Thom Hartmann: Clips from last night’s Hannity TV interview with son of Cliven Bundy, with questions loaded enough to imply shooting federal agents’.
At some point and time, we have to say to agencies like FOX so called news, that enough is enough – If people like Hannity want to promote violence against the United States Government, then they are no longer ‘news reporters’ but simply ‘news profiteers’.
Enough is enough.
We all have the right of free speech but none of us have the right to destroy America.
Are we, the middle class, just expendable labor?
Only for the economic benefit of business?
“Who’s going to pay for it”?????
That’s this dumbass Congressman’s question??
(Bloggers Note : Again I live in Washington State. We passed legislation in 1998, yes 1998 adjusting our State’s minimum wage to inflation. For the last several years we have had the highest minimum wage in the Nation.
It does no harm. In fact it raise our standard of living.
But when Congressmen like this, Republicans, sit there and give BILLIONS of dollars in subsidies to corporations, when they give tax cuts, legislate tax loopholes for the wealthy…..and THEN say it will harm the economy if they raise the minimum wage for hard working, middle class Americans……It’s time to take OUR Country back.)
TAMPA, Florida — ‘People like Shaneeka Rainer are often told that they shouldn’t try to get the minimum wage increased because it only really applies to teenagers working entry-level jobs’.
‘That indeed may have described Rainer 10 years ago, when he first entered the workforce’.
‘But a decade after he got his first job in fast food, Rainer still finds himself working at Arby’s for minimum wage’.
‘In other words, Rainer has worked an entire decade receiving only one raise: when Congress increased the minimum wage in 2007’.
‘And so he showed up at his congressman’s public forum on Tuesday to ask Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL) to finally give him and millions of other low-income Americans a raise’.
‘Ross, who is seeking a third term representing Tampa’s northwest suburbs, was unmoved by Rainer’s plea.
“It’s not right,” the Florida Republican said. “If we are going to make it a living wage, who’s going to pay for it?”

Of course we all remember Hobby Lobby’s outrage at being forced to provide insurance coverage for birth control :

My bad!! That’s the story where Hobby Lobby invests in drug companies that manufacture birth control and abortion drugs.
Hip – O- Crites?
‘On Monday, the Mustang Public Schools board (in Oklahoma) approved a new Bible course developed by Hobby Lobby President Steve Green. Mustang will be the first district to test the supposedly secular curriculum’.
‘Because that’s what students in Oklahoma need: More Jesus’.
“The board, whose district is practically in Hobby Lobby’s Oklahoma City backyard, agreed to beta-test the first year of the Museum of the Bible Curriculum, an ambitious four-year public school elective on the narrative, history and impact of the Good Book”.
‘This is the same Green who told a crowd last year that he thinks the course should be mandatory (5:47) because he knows the book is true (3:40)’:
‘One of the reasons you don’t see many Bible courses in public schools is precisely because it’s very hard to teach the class in a secular way. (It’s also hard, I presume, for non-Christian teachers to get through the Book of Genesis without laughing.’)
‘There’s no word yet on whether the curriculum is indeed objective, but the ACLU of Oklahoma will be inspecting it as soon as it becomes available’.
