Save the Bundys, Portland! Collect the whole set!
We Got Bundies!
They're locked up and ready to see ya, so come on down and catch 'em all!
If I'd had my wits about me I'd have sent them some "NO MA'AM" tee shirts to the FREEDOM FIGHTERS when they were getting all the dildos and things the other week.

That was not a tactically sound maneuver, Mister Bundy. You should have gone straight to CNN and become a regular common tater. People with shit awful opinions do it all the time, they are welcomed with open arms.

forgot to play the long game.

I hope the government sends the Bundys the clean-up bill for the wildlife refuge they shat up, then confiscates their property when they inevitably refuse to pay it.

Cliven appeared in court yesterday and requested a federal public defender. Of course.

3 Bundys live within a few blocks of me now. If it wasn't for that orange building I could probably throw a dildo from my front porch and hit the courthouse steps.
If I were you I would totally attend the court proceedings with a big gulp and the largest fucking popcorn box you could source.
Haha last time I was in there I had jury duty, and there's a popcorn popper in the lobby. Dunno about the Big Gulp though, but they didn't seem to mind my flask of whiskey in my coat when I put it through the xray. :)
IZ, see my comment above about NO MA'AM shirts.
Although if we're making Al Bundy references, this one's more representative of their over all approach:

Martyrdom is a lot more comfortable than it used to be.
You even get a free defense attorney these days.

I'd like to say again that these guys consider themselves to be just like Washington and all the other founding fathers and they're absolutely right.
This is what would have happened to Washington if the British had better forces defending the colonies. If law & order had been more widespread in the early days of America, the rebels wouldn't have stood a chance.
Well, I guess this isn't EXACTLY what would have happened to them. Instead of a comfortable modern jail cell, fair trial and free attorney, they would have just been summarily hung.
I wonder why the American Revolution caught on. It's unlike other Revolutions where people were living in true poverty and tyranny. You put a lot on the line when you revolt, so how was it the people in the American colonies got so whipped up?
Revolutions rarely occur in the depths of poverty; they tend to happen in one of 3 situations:
1) When the country is coming out of dire poverty (e.g. French Revolution)
2) When the country is clearly going into poverty or falling apart (e.g. Russian Revolution)
3) When a large segment of the population feels that they're losing rights to which they're entitled (American Revolution, American Civil War, several of the counter-revolutions in Central & South America)
So.... trying to fix a country that's seriously fucked is a very dangerous proposition... it's probably safer to let it just languish in Shitsville. Trying to fix it is the *right* thing to do, but it's not the safe thing.
Wasn't the American Revolution just a bunch of rich land owners pissed about paying taxes and whipped the proles into a frenzy to fight the war for them?
So exactly like this
The way revolutiosn work is:
For any number of social, political and economic reasons, the existing social order breaks down.
Chaos and infighting ensues.
Usually there are a umber of factions who have been waiting in the wings, often actively agitating and organizing for their particular faction but never truly responsible for or in control of the actual social collapse when it comes.
The old social order has collapsed, leaving a vacuum of power. At this point, the faction with the most fortunate combination of luck, preparedness, cooperation of foreign powers and sometimes even popular support, steps in and installs themselves as the new leadership.
New leadership proceeds to retcon the organic collapse of the old social order such that it was their plan all along.
Maybe things are better now, maybe they are worse. Usually a bit of each.
New boss, same as the old boss.
Eventually the cycle repeats itself.
This is more or less every revolution in human history. After the fact the new leadership will work their asses off claiming that they had it all figured out all along, but when it's actually happening it's an organic event that nobody really controls or understands.

How do we know that's a live shot of the jail? You can't trust the media narrative on this.

His brother Al disowned him years ago.
I'm sure if Al Bundy is one of them, it's he who's been disowned. Mormons don't want anything to do with the sons of perdition.
