Why we should be sympathetic to the Bundy family in Nevada.

Why we should be sympathetic to the Bundy family in Nevada.

The author notes that the Bundy’s don’t have a legal leg to stand on, but then explains why what is happening to them is still unjust. The best quote:

So let’s have some sympathy for Cliven Bundy and his family. They don’t have a chance on the law, because under the Endangered Species Act and many other federal statutes, the agencies are always in the right. And their way of life is one that, frankly, is on the outs. They don’t develop apps. They don’t ask for food stamps. It probably has never occurred to them to bribe a politician. They don’t subsist by virtue of government subsidies or regulations that hamstring competitors. They aren’t illegal immigrants. They have never even gone to law school. So what possible place is there for the Bundys in the Age of Obama?

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!

 

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

 

All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

 

Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    Yet another example of the federal government legislating some guys life and livelihood out of existence, last man standing. From what I have read, several other cattle ranchers have been removed from their property, along with a large majority of the cattle that was raised on that land, so it seems that a large percentage of the cattle is no longer in this area, also the feds have euthanized several of these prized desert turtles. this whole thing smells of dirty politics.

    The U.S. Bureau of Land Management announced it will kill hundreds of threatened desert tortoises it’s been caring for at a Nevada conservation facility. The slaughter is being blamed on a lack of funds by the agency.

    I’m wondering if the reason for the government bullying is (A) driving the little guys out of business in order to help the big guys/campaign contributors, or (B) hurting the entire industry in order to impose the agenda of the environment/animal rights crowd.

  • The answer is yes, to both.

    Welcome to Obama’s America, land of the formerly free.

    Yes!

    It’s like the old classic western story plot. But now the bad guys in black hats that take over the town have first taken over the capital.

  • There is an overlooked irony here, I think. The type of beef Mr. Bundy is raising is “free range” as opposed to factory lot, which is precisely the type of beef production liberals favor, or more precisely the ones still consuming meat. It is more environmentally friendly, existentially satisfying for the animals, and the meat produced is more healthy to consume. (See eatwild.com)

    Perhaps liberal free range meat production advocates prefer that the free ranging be done in another country, much like oil production.
