    The legacy of Cliven Bundy and his worshipers continues.

    When you have a gripe with the government, pick up a gun.

    Thanks right wingers,

      Not to be taken seriously but I had a friend who never made any sense at all BUT for this one time when he was laid off for the 5th time due to politics… he said to solve these problems…”shoot a politician a day”……. I laughed, then I thought about it….. cripes, wonder if that made sense?….

    Who will be the first brave person to assert that this guy is a right-wing plant? That’s how this game is played now, right? Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy is just a political move to help Hillary. Cliven Bundy is actually a left-wing plant to make conservatives look bad. Etc. Etc. When everything’s a conspiracy, nothing is.

      It’s like trying to figure out the paradox if you see yourself during time travel.

        I think your irony detector is broken.

          I apologize, I thought you were being serious.

      dammnm you’re whacked out of your (was gonna say head but I doubt your thing on top resembles a head containing a brain – wow, what does a soulless body look like?)

        WTF are you talking about?

    When are the Cliven Bundy sycophants going to be arrested and charged with making terroristic threats towards Senator Harry Reid (D- NV)?

    • fahvel May 11th, 2014 at 11:42 am

      arrest them for what they do, not what they say.

      • Aquaria May 11th, 2014 at 6:17 pm

        This guy hasn’t done anything but talk. He’s arrested. The clowns in Nevada aren’t. Why is someone arrested for their WORDS to CopperTone, but others aren’t arrested for similar words made to Harry Reid?

        That’s the point that you can’t seem to grasp. Maybe because it might be on top of your head. Look there, so you can remove it.

    I am a Liberal and I have not respect for John Boehner however no one has the right to make threats against another person no matter what their political views, color of their skin, ethnic status, religion, etc. It is wrong.

    • fahvel May 11th, 2014 at 11:41 am

      why is it wrong?

      • kcponte May 11th, 2014 at 12:22 pm

        You really don’t deserve an answer, “Nut Job”.

      • Aquaria May 11th, 2014 at 6:21 pm

        It’s wrong because words frequently escalate to violence. Not always. We’ve all said in the heat of the moment, “I’m gonna kill _____!” and didn’t mean it.

        The problem is that sometimes people can mean it. You start worrying when the threats escalate, as they have in this case.

        You worry that things are escalating when someone contacts the target of his anger by email with a very specific threat of violence over a specific issue, and then when the person escalates to contacting the spouse of the person through a means he shouldn’t be able to get, like a personal cell phone number.

        That’s an escalation that almost always leads to violence, and we understand better these days that it’s always better to nip an escalation in the bud, before someone gets hurt.

    This is what it comes to when you carlessly & arrogantly ignore the pain & desperation some folks are going thru because of YOUR choices mr boehner. You get a paycheck for being off 229 DAYS of the year, your belly is fed, your family secure…. the lives you hold in a single vote seem annoying to you. The “takers”, the “lazy”… all hungry for a good job, not quite as good as yours, mr boehner, but a vote on the INFRASTRUCTURE JOBS bill would have taken some of the pain from some of the folks…….

    We get it… you dont care, your party dont care….. so my taxes poured into the wealthiest companies on the planet instead of a safety net for my fellow countrymen, is your concern…… so, No, I dont feel sorry for you…. I feel bad that YOU led this man to do a stupid thing for which he will pay dearly…… only wish there were some recourse for your BAD DECISIONS, which YOU would pay dearly………
