I have a feeling this guy (Dykes) is making demands but the news isn't being told much about it. Dykes has told his neighbors he's a Vietnam vet with PTS. LOL! I doubt that. He's disturbed for sure, but Vietnam was forty or fifty years ago. I suspect substance abuse has more impact on his state of mind now. A more accurate acronym might be TGNBS. (teabilly gun nut on bath salt) All the teabilly gun nuts are in a state of frenzy over recent talk about gun control. He's just the first one to go off the edge. He's probably got a copy of "the turner diaries" down there in his bunker too! I think he took a hostage simply for attention. He wants people to listen to him. He's probably writing some stupid teabilly manifesto right now; full of words like "socialist","marxist" "dictator", and such. I can't wait to see it! He's got a bunker and a assault rifle and now he's holding off the "tyrannical" Obama government. It's like a deranged teabilly gun nut fantasy vacation for him. He's probably been planning this since the election. Hostage negotiators are talking with him and I'm sure they know what they're doing. I just wish they would tell us more about what he's saying.
