LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Laws can’t be ignored

Laws can’t be ignored

Dear Editor,

Senator Harry Reid said, “We just can’t let people ignore the law.”

He forgot to mention the fact that laws only apply to certain folk.

The Bundy family can’t graze their cattle on federal land without paying a grazing fee. Why did it take a hundred years for the government to come to that conclusion? The Bundy family started ranching in the late 1800s. Do you suppose that the United Nations’ Agenda 21 might have a bearing on what is happening in this country? If you are not familiar with Agenda 21 it might be beneficial for you to do a little research on the matter, and find out what is happening below the radar.

Mr. Bundy’s cattle endangering the desert tortoise was the beginning of the controversy. I wonder how the poor little creatures survived the wild horses and other larger species before the Bundy family started their ranching operation? According to the government the cattle are destroying the environment, and the environment must be protected.

Have you seen the results of illegal traffic on the border? There is more damage done to the ranch land than you can imagine. We don’t enforce the border laws, but we must enforce the grazing laws. The reason for the difference is cows can’t vote. I would venture to say if the Bundy’s promised to vote for Democrats, they could get a subsidy to graze on public land and eat turtle soup.

Does it concern you that the president makes up laws that  benefit his agenda. He promised to work across the aisle, but his idea of compromise is his way or the highway.

Senator Reid said Mr. Bundy and his supporters were domestic terrorists. In my opinion Senator Reid is the domestic terrorist. The tea party citizens are tired of being trampled on. If you don’t see what an overbearing government can do, you need to wake up. The delta smelt minnow has deprived the San-Joaquin valley farmers of irrigation water. How much farm and ranch land do we have to take out of production before food prices are unaffordable?
