  •  You and I HAVE to follow the law (11+ / 0-)

    You and I HAVE to follow the law.  When we do not, we are asked to pay a fine or go to jail.

    Mr. Bundy has refused (by his own admission) to pay grazing fees since 1993.  He has been charged and twice found guilty.  Yet he has paid no penalty of either fines or jail time.

    Why does Bundy get to violate the law without consequence, but you and I do not?  

    Will there be some consequence for Bundy in the future?  Perhaps - tho' this has been going on for 20 years and there has been no consequence in all that time.  Feel free to hold your breath while you wait for swift action on this matter.

    Justice delayed is justice denied.  And it is you and I, the owners of this land (and nominally the ones for whom the federal government acts) who wait for justice to be done.
