    You bring up Waco, yet the government is not acting in this case like they did at Waco.
    And that is a good thing .
    Um, you're the one who said they should put Bundy under seige like Waco.

    My preference is that he just be arrested by the local cops -- today, tomorrow, sometime soon -- the same way any local police department would do if a person is known to have assembled an armed gang to obstruct justice.

    The most serious problem in American politics today is that people with wrong ideas are uncompromising, and people with good ideas are submissive and unwilling to fight. Change that, and we might have a real democracy again.

      Don't just say I did , quote me . If you can't quote me saying that , then you should retreat from that .

      I guess you are not really seeing what is going on .

      •  Why did you bring up Waco? (0+ / 0-)

        If not to say that a siege would be better than an immediate arrest of Bundy? If I misinterpreted you, then I apologize, but I hope you will explain what you actually meant.

        As for my comment about local cops, I have a feeling that Bundy's "militias" will chicken out if they see actual cops moving in to make the arrest. They're probably all bark and no bite.

        However, it's probably a good idea for the police to have FBI backup and whatever other agencies supporting them, ready to spring into action immediately, if there is any provokation by Bundy or his friends.

          That is all. I have never heard of people being allowed to pull guns on federal officials and not be arrested immediately for that action. It is literally unheard of in this country.
          The arrests were not made immediately .
          There was a long delay . 51 days .
