Closer and closer it comes.
It is way the fuck past time to engage it.
And in it was this on the endcap:
You wondered why? Here it is.
So I went over to Geekologie to see what they had. This made me smile!
I was surfing through my G+, and found some interesting things amongst my friends. Like, look at this one!
Immediately after what many considered a victory against a tyrannical federal agency, a number of leftist voices – most notably, Sen. Harry Reid – indicated the action against this family will continue.
In response, Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman sent a letter to Barack Obama, Department of the Interior Sec. Sally Jewell, and BLM Director Neil Kornze, laying out his position that any such action by the agency would violate the U.S. Constitution.
I’ve got an idea, Rep. Stockman. Take action beyond a “strongly worded letter”. Their actions were, are, and will continue to be unconstitutional. This is violation of their OATH at a minimum, more like treason.
Then we have this one. It has video as well, but here’s a clip:
Vowing to take a stand for, “your liberty and freedom,” Bundy says he is prepared to be killed as authorities surround a 600,000 acre section of public land as a result of Bundy violating a 1993 Bureau of Land Management ruling which changed grazing rights in order to protect the endangered desert tortoise.
“With all these rangers and all this force that is out here, they are only after one man right now. They are after Cliven Bundy. Whether they want to incarcerate me or whether they want to shoot me in the back, they are after me. But that is not all that is at stake here. Your liberty and freedom is at stake,” Bundy said.
Bundy’s refusal to recognize federal authority over the land under dispute and his failure to pay tens of thousands of dollars in grazing fees stems from his assertion that his family’s history trumps bureaucracy.
“My forefathers have been up and down the Virgin Valley ever since 1877. All these rights I claim have been created through pre-emptive rights and beneficial use of the forage and water. I have been here longer. My rights are before the BLM even existed,” Bundy said.
Or, how about this:
Supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy violated a “First Amendment Area” by staging a rally in support of Bundy, who earlier declared a “range war” against federal authorities in response to a land dispute that threatens to escalate into a Waco-style standoff.
It’s coming, boys and girls. It’s coming.
UPDATE: A little further down the page, I found this one just now:
Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) claimed on Thursday that armed supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists” and reckless individuals who put their families in danger.
Speaking at a Las Vegas Review-Journal event, Reid was clear: “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists. I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”
There’s more. Enjoy!
UPDATE #2: Found at The Rott. No clip this time. Too good to clip from. Read the whole thing.
And just maybe this is the sort of thing that planted the seed in my mind.
And right around the corner, figuratively. We have our choice of Cygnus, or Upsilon Andromeda, and the scientists have found a fair number more within the “Goldilocks Zone” so far.
What do you think of that? All we have to do now is perfect FTL drive for travel in space, or create a soundly environmentally contained long term ship. Kinda like some “ancient astronaut theorists” imagine the moon, yes, our moon, may have been.
