Cliven Bundy is a deadbeat who formed a gang of armed thugs to get out of paying the government money he owed illegally using federal lands for private gain. You should collect every cent he owes the people of the United States.

Signed with pleasure. This whacko is no better than anyone else and he can pay up what he owes us now. I hope the government takes everything he has. He has gotten away with this illegal behavior long enough. I wonder who else owes? If we can pay our taxes, so can this babbling idiot.

What hypocrisy. The people who trump him up as the "little guy" standing up to the greedy, oppressive gub-mint are the ones who cater to the Wall Street fat cats, seek to strip women of their reproductive freedom, and support unethical and unconstitutional spying on citizens in the name of "national security." Bundy does not have a patriotic bone in his body.

It is shocking that this domestic terrorist is not in jail for oh so many different laws that have been broken. Of course, once again Faux news to a true low life thug and has made him and his ignorant family into some kind of hero. If he were any other rase, religion or gender he would have been in jail year one of his criminal activity but he fits the tea party right wing idea of a patriot......I hope others may get a more clear picture of how many do not give a hoot about equality in this country. I also believe that each and every idiot who came in the name of domestic patrots or small militias to hlold their guns against our federal agents in their one day standoff need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. It is shocking that they are free today and if we do not let these evil minded psychos know that they will be held accountable for their idiotic behavior. If not we will sadly see more and more OKC type incidences. I think one of yhe best punishments for these true low functioning terrorists would be to send them to another country with no money and let them live outside the US. I would bet that many would come back with a real change of heart...they would gain a very strong sense of respect and love for this wonderful country!
Bottom line equality for every single person. All involved in this unbelievable travesty of disrespect for our country need to be held accountable for all laws broken. I also believe


that the FCC should really investigate to see how a supposed news station could make such a true reversal of a story with their inflammatory rhetoric that was so false.....they are tabloid and should not be allowed to call themselves a news station......very sick! Put them all away or provide a reality check In another country as part of their much needed/ required punishment. We have got to change this mentality that any group is better than the other....this one is so blatant it really sickens me!

KOS petition already signed.

If Bundy does not pay up, confiscate his home, property or cattle.
Maybe toss his sorry butt & belly into a "private" prison along with his kindred
buddies. lol.

I am a staunch Progressive. This petition stems from completely erroneous information and is an example of EXACTLY what is WRONG with this country. Mr Bundy is no criminal. It is our out of control Government that is at fault here. Please DO NOT sign this petition.
The land in question is owned by the state of Nevada and for the NV residents. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in 1993 in order to facilitate a project on BML land adjacent to this parcel, moved the desert tortoise to this land. In the process, someone decided that the tortoise was endangered on the Federal list and thus took management from the State of Nevada and assumed management. The tortoise was over populated on this land and they took the overage off and put them in a temporary holding facility while trying to decide what to do. The cost became too much for that and they destroyed the tortoises.
The Bundy's have in fact grazed that land since the 1800's and as tradition back in those days this was the norm. The Bundy's at some point when the land was designated NV land, they paid grazing fee's to the state. That changed in 1993 when the BLM took over management because of the tortoise.
This battle is one of states rights, which has been an ongoing battle for many, many years.
States have to have a purpose, an identity and the future ability to grow. This has been abused by the Federal government for a very long time and needs to be settled.
In Alaska for instance this is the breakdown of land ownership;

"Once all federal conveyances are completed, the state will own
28.5 percent of Alaska while Native Corporations will hold title to
12.5 percent, leaving 58.6 percent to the federal government, and less
than one percent in conventional private ownership."

This was how NV obtained the land in question;

"In the mid to late 1800s, Congress enacted numerous laws to encourage and accelerate the
settlement of the West by disposing of federal lands. Examples include the Homestead Act of
1862 and the Desert Lands Entry Act of 1877. Approximately 816 million acres of public domain
lands were transferred to private ownership (individuals, railroads, etc.) between 1781 and 2010.
Another 328 million acres were granted to the states generally, and an additional 142 million were granted in Alaska under state and Native selection laws.5"
The point here is this is an unsettled land dispute that the feds have played fast and furious with.
Do some research on Federal land ownership. The East coast is private, the West coast is Federal. Fair? Hardly considering that NV gave up 87% of their land to the Federal gov. after the civil war to sell to the private sector to replenish the US government troughs. Doing so would put the land back into NV state residence ownership and bail out the government at the same time.
Well, here we are and the Fed's didn't hold up their end of the deal.
Mr Bundy had absolutely no problem with paying the State of Nevada land use taxes. He did have a huge problem with the federal Government walking in in 1993 and stating that he now owed MORE money to the federal government for use of the land.
We should ALL be behind Cliven Bundy - The matter has NOTHING to do with one political party or the other. I personally despise Mr Bundy's politics. But I stand behind his efforts to stand up to an out of control U.S. Government who is attempting to seize his lands. These new Federal Land Use taxes have put over 35 cattle ranchers out of business. A seemingly small number until one realizes that each rancher owned over 100,000 head of beef cattle each. You want to know the REAL reason that the price of beef is skyrocketing? - You're looking at it. This petition is bullshit, and those posting comments against Cliven Bun dy regarding this issue are misinformed.

This statement: " But I stand behind his efforts to stand up to an out of control U.S. Government who is attempting to seize [his] lands." should read (In the brackets) State of Nevada lands.

Mr. Bundy is a hypocrite, as the very least.
How can you wave a huge American flag around, while riding a horse who probably hates him, and say you don't acknowledge the federal government.
Where is his Texas flag?h

Why should he be able to utilize the grasslands, which he does not own?
He takes advantage of land that everyone else cannot do.
There must be a solution to this dilemma and I certainly hope that our government initiates one, that will work and put him in his place.

He is a WELFARE grass feeder.

Cicely McMillan faces 7 years in prison for reacting to a plain clothered police officer's breast grab (rough enough to leave a hand imprint) from behind. Allegedly, the officer did not identify himself as law enforcement. The "Masters of the Universe" on Wall Street that brought on a financial meltdown of global, garantuous proportions, the catalyst of the Occupy Movement remain uncharged and in fact were financially rewarded while homeowners lost their homes.

Across the country, 2,500 miles removed from New York City, Cliven Bundy and the self-described Nevada Militia hold an armed standoff with federal officials over upaid grazing fees. The federal government blinks first. Apparently, the concepts of “justice” and “rule of law” no longer apply.
