Courtesy of David Codrea: Oregon situation on the web. Also, Ritzheimer emotes: "Don't cry for me, Argentina."

"The Google News feed aggregates all media sources."
CNN coverage: "Armed group's leader in federal building: 'We will be here as long as it takes.'"
Also, Ritzheimer says he's planning on dying.
LATER: Now the collectivist Brit paper, The Guardian, has it.
"Don't cry for me, Argentina."
LATER: "Statement from Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward: 'After the peaceful rally was completed today, a group of outside militants drove to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, where they seized and occupied the refuge headquarters. A collective effort from multiple agencies is currently working on a solution. For the time being please stay away from that area. More information will be provided as it becomes available. Please maintain a peaceful and united front and allow us to work through this situation.'"

Mr. Vanderboegh: When exactly are people supposed to take a PHYSICAL stand? When it is too late?

I thoroughly enjoy and agree with most of your stances/opinions on GOVERNMENT and it's evils, but at some point actual physical resistance is going to be needed.

The Feds will "wait us" out right into our cages.

The time is long past for physical resistance, from ALL of us.

We are beyond the broken windows stage, Mr. Mike. It will probably be proven that this was "the wrong war, at the wrong place, at the wrong time." So was Harper's Ferry. I am more concerned with the stokers of this fire and not the Bundys. It would seem to me that my cop instincts and the little voices in my head are saying that some FEDGOV snitch is poking these people in the butt to get them agitated enough to assemble in the dead of winter in the middle of nowhere to support two folks who do not want their support and wanted to be left alone to their "legal fate". The timing of this along with the impending E/O on "assault weapons" is not coincidental.
But, you cannot deny that a lot of folks here in Amerika have had enough with government encroachment on their rights and economic existence at all levels. As the economic screws tighten and the common sheeple, not ranchers. loggers and miners, feel the pinch, there will be more occupations. And, the players will not be angry old white men with Gadsen Flags or nerd-commando-wannabes in camo with brand-new Bushmasters.
The players will be the FSA-SNAP-EBT commandos and their targets will be shopping malls, Wal-Marts, public venues, and even houses of worship. So what will the Leviathan do then? What will you say then, Mr. Mike? Will you still want me to take the moral high ground when some feral judge or Barry or Hillary confiscates more of my dwindling wealth to keep a lid on this garbage can of a country? Fort Sumter will take on a life of its own.

The guy hiding behind the "Anonymous" name said:

I guess he doesn't remember the Bundy Ranch standoff,
or the protest in Spokane WA.

Another guy (or is it the same one?) brought up Harper's Ferry. That should be a warning, not a rallying point. Frankly, I think McVeigh would be a better example. Sometimes the first guy killed in a war (or, especially, before the war) isn't a hero. Sometimes he is just dead.

No, we are not "way past the broken windows stage," though I understand, with the minions of the LEFT attacking people at malls and the police standing by, doing nothing about it. But there is an election coming up in a few months, and despite our nervousness about 'what if" Obama plans to declare himself dictator, all realistic indications are there will be a regime change at that time. And, despite Lame Steam Media propaganda to the contrary, it is likely that regime change will buy us a few more years of relative peace, and more time to buy more beans and ammo.

TRex: I am not the same one. And, Harper's Ferry was two years before the actual shooting started.It just further polarized the country. This Oregon fiasco will be another step towards the real thing. As far as the Hammonds not asking for help, that is their decision. But this is about a malicious prosecution by the Feds AFTER a jurist already administered what was a "just" sentence for what he felt the transgression deserved. For the prosecutor to appeal the decision, actions had to be taken behind the scenes at a much higher level to "send a message to these white-redneck ranchers." Catch my drift?
As a cop, I investigated several cases where the victims did not want my help-especially battered spouses and children. The California Penal Code took a different view and prosecuted the criminals anyway. This is the issue that has inflamed these protesters(not the occupiers-that's another story). And I hate to burst your bubble but we are not voting our way out of this. Whatever "regime change" you might be hoping for or planning on, the Gods Of Economics will have other ideas about what is going to happen. You can reference my other posts on WRSA.
