Thoughts on the occasion of the October moon

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Driving the Ranchers Off the Land, Part 5 of 6

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

(NOTE: a condensed version of this report appears in the Autumn, 2014 issue of “Range” magazine, on newsstands now.) WHAT’S ‘THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF GRAZING’? With the BLM having turned tail on April 12, has Bundy won -– as his supporters hope and believe — or will the federals just lick their wounds before coming […]

Has ‘The Strike’ already started?

Saturday, September 20th, 2014

One of the first things you notice when you go looking for “mainstream” reviews of the film “Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?” is how few there are. Needless to say, most of the mouth-flappers of our mainstream media — being diehard fans of (and apologists for) our current, all-corrupting, welfare-warfare-taxation state — hate Rand, […]

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

(NOTE: a condensed version of this report appears in the Autumn, 2014 issue of “Range” magazine, on newsstands now.) Cliven showed me areas where he’d bulldozed dirt across an occasional wash, which then filled up and became a muddy watering pond not only for his cattle, but for the quail and other wildlife that subsequently […]

Driving the Ranchers Off the Land, Part 3 of 6

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

(NOTE: a condensed version of this report appears in the Autumn, 2014 issue of “Range” magazine, on newsstands now.) COULD BUNDY HAVE ‘JUST PAID HIS FEES’ AND STAYED IN BUSINESS? The clear implication of the BLM claims that this is all about Bundy simply refusing to pay “more than a million dollars in grazing fees” […]

Driving the Ranchers Off the Land, part 2 of 6

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

(NOTE: a condensed version of this report appears in the Autumn, 2014 issue of “Range” magazine, on newsstands now.) DOES THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OWN THE LAND? Both Cliven Bundy and his friend Cliff Gardner, who ranches Nevada’s Ruby Valley hundreds of miles to the north near Elko and who also keeps getting hauled into federal […]

Just what do they mean by a ‘school shooting’?

Monday, August 4th, 2014

I see where the Victim Disarmament gang have been up to their old tricks, caught red-handed ginning up bogus statistics to try and convince low-information voters that America’s government schools are now little more than shooting galleries. (“But if only we could ban the guns!” they cry, ignoring the curious shortage of attacks on police […]
