FOR THE BIRDS AND THE MEATHEADS

BIRDS
      Shades of Edgar Allen Poe or the Mystery Writers of America.
   These guys are the "power crew."
      Free flight
     Posing.
     A congress gathers.
    The right wing…
    The left wing
   Hey, I'm talking to you.
MEATHEADS
   We had to chuckle when one of the meathead/terrorists in Oregon took the money they raised, went to town and burned the cash on booze and a motel.
    What they've done is an act of sedition. It behoves us all to study up on their alleged "grievances." They are losers, free loaders and want to be further subsidized by tax payers. Their sense of history and knowledge of government is lacking. They complain about government but gladly have taken subsidies and are trying to raise cattle  at a 93% lower rate than say ranchers in my neighborhood or anywhere else in the west. Meatheads!
     Not sure what the Feds will eventually do with these domestic terrorists. As Stephen Colbert said the other night-leave them alone as they invite all other militias to share their isolated wilderness compound in the dead of winter. What better place could there be. Now if only Quentin Tarantino could direct their final act.

   See you down the trail.

  1. My grandfather had an expression he used frequently and it fits these guys perfectly: damn fools!

  2. My brother in law who grew up on a real cattle ranch, who has MS in agriculture and is in the international commodities business says, "You know how many of these idiots I've run into at meetings? Talk about morons, they don't have a clue about raising cattle in today's world. And they want us to pay for their cowboy fantasies.

    1. I urge folks, including some of the media who seems to respond to "crisis" more than factual context to examine closely what these folks are all about.

  3. I echo that, your last reply to Jager. Particularly the subsidies, the grazing fees not paid, on and on. I don't think they thought this one out very well.

  4. Thinking does not appear to be their strong suit.

  5. I wonder, at what point does willful, adamant, consistent stupidity reap its rightful consequences? I'm not just talking about these Oregon empty-hat bozos; I'm talking about the whole far-right wing.

  6. guess you can't make being stupid against the law, but we could stop the stupid from making laws--and in the case of the empty-hat bozos, from breaking it.
