If in fact this is the actual facts of the matter he has stolen from the citizens of this country for 21 years. Seems to me he might make a pretty fair politician with his experience.
I don't necessarily agree that taking his cattle for remuneration towards 21 years of grazing fees is the right thing to do, but something had to happen. For 21 years he slipped through the cracks and now it is time to pay up and he doesn't like it.
My hope is that cooler heads will prevail in this matter and no one comes to harm.
I hope it gets resolved peacefully as well. I know this man has refused to pay the fees since 1993. Though I haven't looked into his reasoning and don't know the circumstances.
If you think this rancher is stealing from you then ask Harry Reid how much his mining buddies have paid to the US for the minerals the reap. ZIPPO. You see unlike oil, gas,and coal companies they pay absolutely no royalties on any mineral or metal they take from the earth. They only pay comparatively miniscule claim and maintenance fees. In 2011 it was a total of 64 million. Compare that to energy exploration and producing companies. Harry Reid is the main paid shill for the mines and has been for a long time . He has made sure no legislation ever gets through to get royalties from mining companies. This cattle ranchers unpaid fees are a grain of sand on the beach compared to what we could be getting from mining.
