Private interests vs. our Public interests

Regarding the oppression at Standing Rock

Law enforcement seems to go out of its way to defend private big $$$ interests yet defending public property interests draws a tepid response.

I submit the Bundy Klan as examples in Nevada and Oregon where armed occupation was met with a "wait and see" attitude. Even in the face of weapons turned on government officials in Nevada and weapons brought on to, followed by vandalism of federal property at, the Malhuer Wildlife Preserve in Oregon.

And in contrast, at Standing Rock (along with the Occupy Movement and BLM) we see an aggressive militarized response.

This country needs a lot of turning around. It's priorities are so screwed up.

1. Get in the way of corporate profit


and you will get smacked hard (like DALP and Occupy Wall Street). The Bundy's were trying to get the fed to cede federal land back to the states, so, of course, corporate profits could be made through things like timber clearing and mineral rights.
