It is a pity Cliven Bundy turned out to be a vocal racist, because the evil slime oozing from his mouth obscures the other drivel he spouts: that he is entitled to your money to feed his cows.
Mr. Bundy's cows eat government grass, which means they feed literally from a public trough. And so does Bundy, every time he saws one up into steaks or sells one. Indeed many in the American agriculture business, other than those who actually pick the crops - are first-rate inhalers of government largesse.
