Back Fire

The crazies who aligned themselves with Clyde Bundy against the Bureau of Land Management teamed  up with some scofflaw ATV riders in invading Recapture Canyon despite the protected status of that iconic landscape in Utah.  Guns were in evidence again as if too tell the rank and file BLM employees they were dead meat if they tried to interfere.

This second confrontation just added to the noise from the backfire of the Bundy affair in which snipers with assault rifles were drawing down on the conservation officers trying to do their job at the Nevada ranch.  That backfire will alienate BLM employees from trusting the folks they are in charge of helping to obey the rules in protecting lands and watersheds.

The rumor mill has it that the employees are insisting that legal actions against the Bundy militia types and the ATV riders not be dropped and that fines and jail time are handed out.  They feel that failure to do so will endanger their lives, and I totally agree with that assessment.   So, this is one the Department of Justice and the Interior Department can not let get away from them if they want to show they have respect for the rank and file employees safety.

Want to understand why we are dead last in NM due to Martinez and her financiers decisions to eliminate government spending? (Note that she wants to eliminate spending but does trickery to raise taxes on the individuals, like cut funding to cities so they have to raise gross receipts tax to make up for it, GRT, a tax which is regressive)

Want to know the truth about how Martinez feels about educating the children rather than her tv spot giving every child a book even though some say they did not get that book?

Listen to her actions, not her words.

She needs to go! She's a fraud!
