TYT Bundy Ranch Conspiracy Debunked

This is really nicely done!


The Gov. was smart to back off and not get into a gun battle with the Bundy nuts

That would have gone over like a lead balloon and a lot of naïve people would have ended up killed needlessly. Here are some other options they may pursue:


Don’t be surprised if the cattle disappear from public land anyway. Bundy is a criminal, a bully, a border-line seditionist, with multiple court orders against him, and opposition within his own community. He may withdraw his now smaller herd back to his own property. Then the Feds may choose to continue to use contracted cattleman gather the cattle up, only more slowly and discreetly, maybe even one at a time. There are other options as well, and these could be worse for Bundy now that the round up has been temporarily abandoned — the Feds now have the option to wait until his new, radical, Militia friends go home, and then pursue criminal charges against him for obstruction of governmental administration and menacing. They may seize his bank accounts and the property that actually belongs to him because of his mounting debts ($1.1 million in unpaid fees, fines, and interest, plus nearly another million for the cost of the aborted round up, plus however much that cost was inflated because of the need to increase the law enforcement presence since he threatened to start a range war). Bundy fought the law, but ultimately the law will win. And as romantically as the cowboy and the outlaw are often viewed in our culture, in this case the law should prevail. http://www.allthingscrimeblog.com/.../nevada-squatter.../

Mississippi passes Arizona-style religious freedom bill

Mississippi legislators on Tuesday took up and quickly passed a controversial religious freedom bill that could allow state residents to sue over laws they say place a substantial burden on their religious practices.

Supporters of the measure say it would protect religious freedoms, while opponents say it could be used to discriminate against gays and lesbians. A similar bill that passed Arizona’s legislature earlier this year, but Gov. Jan Brewer (R) vetoed it after the bill drew loud protests from gay rights and civil liberties groups.

The Mississippi version was on life support after two earlier versions missed key deadlines, but legislators resurrected it in a conference committee last week. That committee stripped out some of the language that civil rights groups objected to. The House and Senate, both of which are controlled by Republicans, took up identical versions on Tuesday and passed them by wide margins.

Dachshund's are the most agressive dog breed acording to one study

This rings true to me because my sisters Chihuahua tries to bite anyone who bothers her when I am holding her. She is pretty attached to me for some reason.

Snip> The study involved researchers from the University of Pennsylvania as well as 6,000 dog owners. The number one aggressive breed out of the 33 dogs surveyed? The Dachshund. Yes – the wiener dog. The study found that “one in five dachshunds have bitten or tried to bite strangers, and a similar number have attacked other dogs; one in 12 have snapped at their owners.”

Number two on the list is an even more diminutive breed – the Chihuahua, while Jack Russells came in third.

The researchers say that the bite statistics that have been released in recent years are skewed because most dog bites are not reported. Big dog bites are more likely to require medical attention, but this does not mean that those breeds are doing the majority of the biting.

Pit Bulls and Rottweilers scored average or below average in the aggression study. Breeds that scored on the low end are Basset Hounds, Golden Retrievers, Labradors, Siberian Huskies and Greyhounds.

This was the big topic on local right wing radio today. Of course they completely twisted the facts before presenting it on the radio
