Cheryl Pass of the My Tea Party Chronicle blog brings us this timely essay on the development of another potential Ruby Ridge situation in Nevada. She originally published this essay on April 10, 2014.




Today is the first and only day in my life (so far) that I decided I’d like to be a 35 year old man with the kajones to go after our government. I’m talking physical muscle.  Wishing I had it…lots of it, right now.  I’ve always been perfectly happy being female.  What’s that old song, “I Enjoy Being A Girl?”  That’s me. (I also liked the song, “It’s So Nice To Have A Man Around The House.”) But today, as I watched the news reports coming from Nevada about the Bundy family’s cattle ranch, my blood pressure kept rising and I felt my Irish getting up, I swallowed hard a bunch of times….and let me tell you, this makes my blood boil.  I’ve seen another recent report about other ranchers being bullied, harrassed, and forced out by the Bureau of Land Management, so this isn’t the first time I’ve been angry about this sort of thing.   I am wondering if this will be the last straw for enough people to smack down this cabal of thugs we call our government.Congress?  What Congress.  We’ve watched for years while they funded the unconstitutional agencies and refused to rein them in.  The result of which is a perfect example of “give ’em an inch and they take a mile.” We’ve watched for the last 5 or 6 years while Congress talks big about doing something and does nothing to stop this insanity.  At this point, they are all criminally negligent.

Sometimes you get to the point where the only thing left is to physically overpower thugs, either with numbers of people or with higher fire power.  I’m watching the situation in Nevada and wishing I could be one of the numbers and wishing I could fight back for the Bundy family, the cattle ranchers whose cattle are being stolen by the Bureau of Land Management.  Driving the knife into my heart, and I’m sure their hearts, is that this is calving season and the BLM is orphaning newborn and dogie calves who will starve without their mothers.  What sort of people are these?  These are not Americans.  They are no better than Nazi brownshirts.  This can’t happen in America.  ???  Well, guess what!  It is.  The BLM hired thugs are nothing more than cattle thieves.  We used to know what to do to cattle thieves.  Now it’s the government as cattle thieves.

This is on top of what government has done to the farmers in California.  And we wonder why our food prices are escalating.  Beef is at an all time high.  Stealing thousands of cows and putting cattle ranchers out of business is sure going to help that, right?

This is not just about the Bundy’s, although they are the critical situation at the moment.  This is about all of us.  Every American.  What the BLM is doing is Agenda 21, pushing people off their own land, shutting down property rights, controlling the food supply and all resources.  It’s all of us…no one is coming out of this unscathed.
Watch thisTelling you….this ought to do it….it is time to fight back with something stronger than a pen.  But my pen is all this lady has to offer right now.

  1. Home rule, local rule.

    The only way to stop the Federal Government’s intrusion into our lives is to beat them back at every state line.

    This is precisely what the founders envisioned and well explained in the Federalist Papers. Unfortunately, the Feds are mostly in bed with every state politician and by seizing our tax money- have enough largesse to wage battles on virtually every front.

    The only way to stop this is a unified battle line drawn by at least two thirds of the states and taken up together.

    Unfortunately- I am not seeing it.

  2. Thanks, Jim. Just saw that you posted this. Am still following this story and today hearing that Reid is making threats to go after the Bundy’s some more. The awful thing is this is just one case of BLM intimidation and force against farmers, ranchers, and land owners out of hundreds, especially in the western U.S. This administration has militarized unelected bureaucrats against American citizens. So…the fight will continue.

    Hope all is good with you! (under the circumstances!)
