Something about this whole deal just doesn't smell right, i'm not quite ready to take sides on this one.

At the end of the day the story goes like this. Cliven Bundy, whether he likes them or not, stopped paying the mandatory fines and taxes since 1993. Reports show that Bundy did pay those fines when they became law in 1986 when Republican Ronald Reagan issued it via an executive order. Bundy also didn't seem to mind paying them through the George H.W Bush's time in office, but suddenly stopped when Democrat Bill Clinton took office. Whether the number is what the federal government says it is at $1 million or it's closer to the $300,000 that Bundy claims, Cliven Bundy has proven to be one thing, a freeloading moocher who thinks he is above the law.
This article points some things out about Harry Reid and the head of the BLM:
The head of the Federal Bureau of Land Management is none other than Neil Kornze, Democrat Senator Harry Reid’s former Chief of Staff. It’s no exaggeration to say that Kornze has the job as a ‘Reid appointment.’
The Blaze has published a few good articles as well.
I do know one thing. Mesquite, NV is home to a lot of retirees. We have people from Mesquite that spend the summer in my town so they can cool off, it's already almost 100 during the day there. Mesquite is the home to a lot of seasonal guests (snowbirds) that were pretty upset and scared at all of this attention and the militia groups showing up. I think they will lose some business next year.
Many of the local residents of Mesquite that were interviewed on the news supported the Bundy's but they all might go to the same Mormon church. They did find a few people that did not agree and they choose not to be on camera, I don't blame them.
It had a lot more to do with a turtle, the guy defaulted on the fees. Other ranchers pay the fees.
“He’s still making these arguments about how the federal courts don’t have jurisdiction because the United States doesn’t own the land in question,” Dan Greenberg, an attorney and president of the Advance Arkansas Institute, a nonprofit that advocates for public policy based on the principles of limited government, told TheBlaze.
“He’s losing on all these claims,” Greenberg said, noting that Bundy’s arguments have already been rejected twice by the courts. “Unfortunately for him, his arguments – that he simply doesn’t recognize federal authority – will not be recognized in the courts. … The legal theory here that Mr. Bundy’s using is radical in its implications.”

With that said, I think the federal government has gone too far and should back off. I think Reid should retire and never talk politics again.
