Yes, these are people who get government largess in various forms, and are trying to make names for themselves biting the hand that literally feeds them, as Allen Clifton writes:

It’s been over a month since this story first broke, yet there are still reports of armed Bundy supporters roaming around the Nevada and Utah deserts “standing up against the federal government.” The fact that there continues to be groups of people sitting around the desert doing nothing for well over a month now has led many individuals like myself to ask the question, “Don’t they have jobs?”

Well, that question has somewhat been answered as it seems that several of these “patriots who don’t need help from anyone” are now asking for welfare from supporters to help them pay bills and buy food.

Christopher E. Ferrell is one of these people who’s decided that he felt like playing war in Nevada rather than going to work to take care of himself and his family. He opened an account on GoFundMe with the following message:

…we have spent our fortunes for freedom and love of our fellow man and need your help to continue our efforts to keep all Americans free from tyranny. Please if you can spare even a few dollars for food, fuel and supplies to continue the stand against tyranny and an overbearing governtment [sic] please help. Even the smallext amount will help keep up the pressure to return this land to the people. I thank you all sincerely for your contribution.

Yes, a shame he doesn’t like the governtment.

    Another con, what a surprise. Anybody want to bet whether or not the funds that get raised are reported to the IRS. Can we add tax fraud to the list of crimes now?

    • granpa.usthai May 14th, 2014 at 3:39 pm

      by all means, been saying the Bundy Hideout needs to be audited. Don’t seem right that all the law abiding ranchers should have to forsake their own just to keep deadbeat cow chips alive and thriving. Run ’em down to Mexico and see how much better off they’ll be sitting on their worthless behinds calling for a WHITE Revolution.

      • BanditBasheert May 14th, 2014 at 4:09 pm

        He owes the government over a million dollars for grazing on public lands. That’s public, as in you and me.
        The guys a scam artist, probably demented and now he’s being used by a bunch of anarchists who cannot afford to support themselves so they’re begging for dollars.
        Mr. Bundy is going to lose this – bigtime.
        I doubt if anyone cares at this point.

        • granpa.usthai May 15th, 2014 at 12:53 am

          an audit will be needed to determine what articles on the Bundy cow farm belong to US, possibly including the cows and the range rustlers cheap saddle. What’s already been assessed will merely be added to the overall total, and incarceration that even REAL AMERICANS who believe in the existence of the USA, even when we have an Hawaiian POTUS are required to serve when caught as a violent criminal.

    • BanditBasheert May 14th, 2014 at 4:07 pm

      Wondering if Mr. Bundy actually does pay taxes? We know he collects farm subsidies and grazes his cattle for free on public lands. He is obviously old so he’s probably on SS and Medicare (I DOUBT he served in the military).
      Talk about TAKING!

  2. Nobama May 14th, 2014 at 10:56 am

    Out of 5 articles I see a whopping total of 34 comments.

    • EnuffBull May 14th, 2014 at 11:01 am

      But most have more value than your little pithy contribution.

      Kudos for winning the game “If You Have Nothing To Say, Why Not Say Something Stupid.”

      • Nobama May 14th, 2014 at 11:24 am

        I expect things to pick up after the Jerry Springer show is over on the east coast.

        • arc99 May 14th, 2014 at 11:26 am

          so that’s why most of the right wing comments show up in the late afternoon and evening.. thanks for the clarification.

          • Nobama May 14th, 2014 at 12:12 pm

            The right wingers are working during the day so they can pay for the takers who keep Jerry’s rating up.

          • EnuffBull May 14th, 2014 at 12:31 pm

            Got’cha. The takers are like the right wing anarchists at the Bundy ranch, like this article points out.

          • granpa.usthai May 14th, 2014 at 3:43 pm

            ah yes, the government subsidized “makers” who know the value of paid off Republican Politicians that ‘redirect’ government revenues straight into their offshore bank accounts.

          • Nobama May 14th, 2014 at 4:17 pm

            I used to golf with two of the Secret Service who “redirect” their government revenues into offshore accounts. Anyone can do it ya know?

          • arc99 May 14th, 2014 at 4:55 pm

            wonder how many of those offshore accounts were domiciled in countries with universal health insurance as practiced by nearly every western democracy on the planet. except ours.

          • granpa.usthai May 15th, 2014 at 12:45 am

            bet they paid taxes here first.

  3. craig7120 May 14th, 2014 at 11:40 am

    LOL @ fat racist white people asking for handouts and those who support their cause, buck up buttercups. Get to fighting already, y’all talk or what?

    • Sam Freedom May 23rd, 2014 at 6:11 pm

      Get to fighting? They showed up. The BLM retreated. The only one that’s all talk is, apparently, you.

  4. Sam Freedom May 14th, 2014 at 11:53 am

    The contrast makes it hard to tell but I think the guy to bundys right is black and those are all his hired bodyguards and not the patriots patrolling the land.

    In case you libs hadn’t noticed, the govt showed up with weaponry. But they would never do it again, right? Why don’t you career complainers just grow up?

    • arc99 May 14th, 2014 at 12:00 pm

      career complainers? project much?

      Bundy and his thugs are whining about having to obey the law, and we need to grow up?

      my god, you really need to take your own advice.

      • BanditBasheert May 14th, 2014 at 4:05 pm

        Yes … well …

      • Sam Freedom May 23rd, 2014 at 6:10 pm

        Yes, you need to grow up. Even in your reply, you refer to Bundy’s supporters as “thugs”. Can you show any evidence of thuggery? Doubt it.

        You refer to their complaint as “whining”. Do the armed agents of the BLM retreat because of whining? Doubt it.

        “My god” you really need to own the “project much?” stuff for yourself.

    • Dwendt44 May 14th, 2014 at 12:52 pm

      Federal agents are allowed to carry firearms. They are sworn law enforcement officers. Not a rag tag bunch of gun nuts. The threats of Bundy and his law breaking family necessitates well armed enforcement. Had Bundy not been stealing from the tax payers for 20 years, the BLM wouldn’t have been there at all.

      • BanditBasheert May 14th, 2014 at 4:04 pm

        Agree. It is time to bring all of this to an end. First file that lien on the ranch and then go in and fix this mess. As sworn law enforcement, they need to enforce that law. Martyrdom is such a b*tch.

        • Sam Freedom May 23rd, 2014 at 6:00 pm

          Then you don’t mind Sheriff Joe Arpaiao imprisoning illegal aliens and sending them back to Mexico.

          Doh! The hypocrisy must be killing you!

      • Sam Freedom May 23rd, 2014 at 5:59 pm

        Stealing from the taxpayers? Have you noticed the national debt lately? You’re tripping over dollars to pick up quarters and gloating over armed agents that you’d be calling “nazi stormtroopers” if they showed up at your house.

    • donaldogomez May 14th, 2014 at 3:31 pm

      Congratulations!! You are either a very droll comedic wit ORRRRR a friggin moron who sees the world as a vast conspiracy against you and these other idiots. You must be a comic, no one could seriously think that Al Bundy,”let me tell you……” naaah. You are not fooling me! You know this guy is a world class welfare moocher who is lucky we no longer have debtor’s prisons. Like you, I admire the POTUS for having the patience to let this drag on until the little tin soldiers are reduced to begging before they slink back home in disgrace.

      • Sam Freedom May 23rd, 2014 at 5:54 pm

        It’s obvious by your mature response that you made a thorough analysis of the facts and are not just repeating liberal talking points.

        As for POTUS, he’s let just about everything drag on. Except the video that got our ambassador murdered in Benghazi – the pres was right in to p of that video.

        Oh, and Beergate.

    • granpa.usthai May 14th, 2014 at 3:45 pm

      who’s paying for the deadbeat so called rancher’s bodyguards dressed up in their desert camies?

      • Sam Freedom May 23rd, 2014 at 5:51 pm

        How bout you just ma ke your case target than trying to convince yourself your clever?

    • BanditBasheert May 14th, 2014 at 4:02 pm

      Cops show up with guns. Mr. Bundy is a thief. The government should put a lien on his ranch –
      Far as I’m concerned, they can come back with weaponry.

      • Sam Freedom May 23rd, 2014 at 5:48 pm

        Those weren’t cops. They were BLM, the same people you weirdos demonize when the narrative is about the poor, innocent native Americans.

        But now they’re your heroes.

        No wonder Michael savage refers to liberalism as a mental disorder.

    • r_dale May 14th, 2014 at 11:26 pm

      You’re the only one whining here; typical “patriot.”

      • Sam Freedom May 23rd, 2014 at 5:46 pm

        Apparently, you grew up inn a dysfunctional family and don’t know what a normal conversation looks like

  5. Dwendt44 May 14th, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    A couple of the self appointed leaders of this band of loons are getting disability benefits. Obviously they could work as security guards so cut their benefits now.

  6. Foundryman May 14th, 2014 at 1:52 pm

    Where’s that entrepreneurial spirit? That rugged individualism? They need to put their human shields…er ah…wives to work…

    • BanditBasheert May 14th, 2014 at 4:00 pm

      There are obviously not real men – you know, the kind that can go out into the wilderness with a toothpick and build a shopping mall? Guys with skills?

  7. Foundryman May 14th, 2014 at 1:58 pm

    They have spent their fortunes…..Which amounted to about two tanks of gas and no way to get back home…

  8. Obewon May 14th, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    Sponging off Welfare Rancher Bundy’s FNC viewers “only raised $170 – well short of his apparent goal of $100,000.” Has Bundy noticed? ‘Them cattle sure is disappearing fast.’

  9. granpa.usthai May 14th, 2014 at 3:33 pm

    sure do look hot out there in the Nevada desert lands. Hope OUR BLM Agents have AC and plenty of cold beverages to quench their thirst. Being that this is a declared ‘war’ – I want the guys on my side to have the best available – including a nice cool pool to relax in during their down time. OH! -and I don’t want the guys in the drone room to be without either. Love watching the ‘enemy’ having to sit there and sweat it out while my guys get some R&R in LV.

    • Gindy51 May 15th, 2014 at 6:03 am

      They could stop this by turning off Bundy’s electricity and water now. Even if he has a well it takes electricity to get that water out of the ground even with a wind mill.
