They wanted blankets but they got a 12" dildo to help keep them warm.

Only about half the English colonial population supported American independence. If you factor in the opinions non-British subjects and indigenous peoples, probably only about a quarter of the North American population supported the Revolution.
The independent troops supplied themselves by "foraging", which sometimes meant hunting & gathering wild fauna & flora, but more often meant going armed into farms & communities and forcibly stealing food the citizens, who didn't necessarily support their cause, had stockpiled for the winter months.
Many of the revolutionary soldiers who met resistance to their foraging efforts often wrote in their journals & letters about how angry they were that these people didn't just surrender up the contents of their larders. After all, the soldiers were out there, risking their lives and fighting for the "benefit" of the people they were stealing the food from.
I think the guys on the Bundy ranch and the people who have joined them in Malheur really are EXACTLY like the Revolutionary soldiers they idolize. The big difference now is that the continent has good police & military forces and they can't get away with kicking in peoples' doors and taking whatever supplies they want.
At least the greedy assholes of old were fighting for a country that appeared to have a bright future. These greedy assholes are fighting for...what exactly? The rotten hunks of flesh that are falling off a decaying empire?
In case you haven't read it, here's a sample of what they did want:
I think the best part is out of that list, the one thing that is listed is needed badly is eggs.
They didn't bother even considering the life essentials they would need before they moved in there. They just walked in and expected that if the government didn't bow to their whims, that their "supporters" would send them whatever they needed.
Are they honestly surprised by this? Seriously?
I though militia nuts would also be prepper/survivalist nuts. Did they not buy their buckets of mac and cheese from Jim Bakker?
i've seen that show on tv. dudes with bomb shelters and converted school buses. those dudes can live for years. are you trying to tell me that there are no doomsday nuts in these militias? they just ride around their redneck trucks with assault rifles and credit cards?
Don't let the ten-gallon hats and flannel shirts fool you. These guys aren't rednecks. They're upper-middle-class Yankees who've never roughed it in their lives. Glorified larpers, in other words.
Roger, fake cowboys just like Reagan and W.
Burns Oregon actually is "Cowboy And Indian" Country if I've ever seen one in North America, vs. Pendleton and other places, but yeah these guys don't represent that. What's funny is you can pretty much walk to the grocery and liquor store from there, which they've now been doing. A drunken fight ended with one of the occupiers shot in the head just a day or so ago too.
This reminds me too much of Occupy Portland, whose intentions were good IMO: I basically lived at that camp for a week, since the Opera where I worked was across the street from the camp, so they put me there so I would be the face of one of the 99% and not the bourgeois and it worked!
No raiding or occupying like every other buildings downtown! But during that time, all the bars closed, especially once things went from peaceful to violent, and the only place in town that was open was the 7-11, packed full of people loading up on cigarettes, beer, sandwiches.. it was like c'mon guys! This is what you hate but now you need it.
Oops I didn't get that shooting story exactly right... :/

Why do people have to be so cruel? This whole thing started as overcompensation for their tiny cocks and you heartless fuckers got to go thrusting giant rubber dongs in their faces?

They are being treated with the level of respect they deserve.

The last frame, lol: Better get to picking up these ridiculous dildos. They sure are ridiculous. I mean, look at the size of that one.

These people are demanding that we turn over the national parks system to a bunch of pig and cow farmers. This is the highest use of the land that they can imagine. Try to wrap your head around that. They're not a minority, either.
As dismayed as I am about all this, I can't help but feel cheered by the fact that the principal victims of these people's stupidity are the very folks who support and enable them. After years of whining about the tyrannical federal government, now they've got their alternative. The fed has been largely invisible and it's been left to the locals to figure out how to deal with the situation. It is exactly what they have all been demanding. And it is killing them.
Yeah, like I said above it reminds me of the Occupy here in Portland, which went from a friendly sort of Woody Guethrie anthem mixed with a Burning Man vibe with cars going by honking in support into pretty much chaos. The lines for food in the parks they occupied were too long so people went searching for food winding up with gas station quality sandwiches, and a girl got raped in a tent, which Occupy Portland covered up. By the end, most people who showed up there were just trying to get laid from what I saw, and didn't know anything about what it was about in the first place. And at that point neither did I, or probably even most of the organizers. It just fell apart.
But I think the feds' passive aggressive behavior here isn't good: in Portland they did that to an extent until the end, and worst case scenario you'd be assaulted with a U-Lock if you treaded. But I don't see a good end to this, a bunch of gun happy hungry idiots with free roam of Burns ain't good news.

Not sure they needed any help in fucking themselves.

I'm also sure that's exactly what this is.
Even if the Federal government were to surrender the land to the states, the states would turn right around and sell it to wealthy individuals & corporations for a pittance and charge little, if any, property taxes.
The choicest, most scenic bits would be developed into private residences and resorts for the wealthy with the infrastructure to support them being paid for by county, state & federal tax dollars. Everything else would be stripped bare of useable resources.
States can't afford the upkeep and the fire fighting anyway, which is a major reason these types of movements have never found traction in the past.

I can't wait til they eat all the sugar-free gummibears that were sent to them.

Boy, am I glad rural Oregon is like a different planet to the I-5 corridor.
At this point Beaverton feels like a different planet to me.. :(

Good thing these guys aren't Indian grandpas "looking in peoples garages". There is a part of me that hopes Black Lives Matters has figured out a strategic counter occupation while minimizing the danger to themselves (Oregon would be a bad idea). Maybe an Olive Garden in a small town or something...
Last time I went through there I think there was an OG actually, not too far away from the refuge. Burns is a small town but it's got the same chain/fastfood options as anywhere else.
