Ha! Oh it’s not that bad here
(Seriously they won’t let us leave)

Nice people
(The secret police are watching)

Decent environment
(Landmines everywhere and border guards)

It may have some weather issues but nothing much worse than other places. Overall it isn’t a bad place to be.

Come visit us sometime!

The TV show Fargo on FX is just like the movie. The way they talk, act, how everything looks is just like Minnesota.

No exaggeration at all.

It’s like they set up some cameras and followed some people around to show how we do it here.

I was trying to sneak up on some deer eating to watch with my 7y/o but they caught us and left. 

I wonder if this is the same deer about a week ago that was standing around my car I had left on the street one morning and when I walked outside they had it surrounded and just stared at me like a bunch of thugs saying “Whatcha going to do about it?” They slowly walked away to let me know who was in charge there. I’m glad they didn’t jump me without anyone else around to capture a video for YouTube.

So I have been watching this Bundy Ranch government standoff in Nevada since it basically started heating up. I don’t know why it caught my attention so much.

I initially was like “yeah! Stand with Bundy!” Because of my punk rock spirit against the establishment. (Sounds reasonable to me)

I have read and watched a bunch of different reports on this story. Many sources all reporting something different on the same event. It has become very confusing on what to believe and who.

Even on Saturday when I was jumping between two live ustream feeds of the protest and the move to get the cattle back the two different streams were showing the same event but describing it two different ways. One was “They are threatening to shoot if we don’t stay back!” The other was “everything seems to be going peaceful. ”

I have read and seen so much about these people, land rights, grazing rights, bureau of land management, and so on. I almost feel like I know less about the situation than I did when it first started.

A few things though:

One early video I watched of the protesters yelling at law enforcement and a guy got shot with a teaser and he yanked the prongs out of his chest and tossed them back. I laughed and admire his strength. The part with the lady getting pushed down and them threatening to let loose a dog on another lady pissed me off.

If he is violating public land continuously then why wasn’t he arrested and prosecuted in court. Why they standoff with so many armed people and even the no fly zone?

If he owes so much in back taxes/fees/whatever why didn’t they seize his bank accounts and other assets? Why go after so few cattle that wouldn’t be worth the fraction owed they would bring at market?

Did the BLM actually destroy some of the water improvements and troughs on the land? If they did as rumored then whoever took part in that deserves no mercy. You never destroy any water source in a desert area. That creates a death sentence for more than just cattle.
Obviously this wasn’t about preserving the desert tortoise. Does Senator Harry Reid have a hand in this or does it matter anyway since there would be no way he would ever face prosecution?

Can the federal government own land without paying a state for it?

There was a group that offered to cover the past due amount but I don’t think the BLM has accepted it. Why not?

So many questions. One thing for sure is if you want to get the news on something you need to visit every source out there just to get an idea on what might be going on.

Really disturbing. I am glad they didn’t start shooting but I also know this isn’t close to being over.

Both sides went way over board and it is disappointing.

It’s a chilly overcast day here so we are inside having fun. Nice big breakfast, watching cartoons, playing a fart sound app on the tablet, probably rock out to some music and grab the toy instruments to play rock stars, and then stockpile weapons for the government invasion.

Normal, lazy Sunday stuff here. I hope you all are having a good day as well.

My 7 y/o became a working man today. 

Can’t wait to show him taxes!

I have/had stuff to write here but I’ve been busy and then couldn’t get the patience or in the mind set to get it all out.

So pretend that I wrote something interesting and entertaining. Something that made to you smile, feel emotional, and ended with a message that inspired you in such a good way that you applied it to your life and you went on to do big and bold things that you never thought you could do.

Thanks.

You guys are the best.

Rock on!

I’ve been beat up and beat down. Physically hurt. Stepped on nails that went through my foot, bashed in the head where I couldn’t function, lost everything, wondered where I was going to sleep at night, if I could find something to eat, been called every horrible name in the book. And I never cried. I just kept going and doing.

But today, for some strange reason, I found myself researching and reading about children in the sex slave world and I broke down crying.

I am learning about young kids my own kids ages being kidnapped and used for sexual purposes.

It has really tore me up.

And there is no place in this world where a child is safe from this. Even my little town just last week someone was busted for human trafficking. It is everywhere.

And I cry. I don’t know what to do to help.

Somewhere out there right now someone is being abused and destroyed and we can’t do anything about it.
