Bundy V. U.S. Government

Dear Madame L,

Don't you feel sorry for the Nevada rancher, Cliven Bundy, who has been grazing his cattle on federal land for years, only to be unjustly attacked by the Bureau of Land Management?


Why Should I Recognize the Federal Government?

Dear Bundy Supporter,

Your ridiculous, ignorant and jejune question leaves Madame L floundering. Are you kidding? Where should Madame L start?

Here, for her Dear Readers who don't like to follow links from this page, is Stephen Colbert's answer to the question, with apologies for the weird speed of the recording. (You can find a better version of it here.)

And here is Jon Stewart's answer to the question:

Please, even before we all knew Cliven Bundy was a racist, we knew he was a hypocrite and a criminal, grazing on land owned by the U.S. government (that is, you and me) while claiming not to recognize the government. He owes US, you and me, a million dollars in fees. And even though the BLM mis-handled the confrontation, they were right to go after him. Shame on Cliven Bundy, and shame on anyone who finds anything admirable about him.


Madame L

So the US Government backs down from dealing with a lying, thieving hypocrite, just because he brought in armed goons?

This sounds like the Taliban getting what they want because they threaten people. What's wrong here?
