Standoff in new Old West

(Continued)

Libertarian perspective. Another senator, Rand Paul, R-Tennessee, told Fox News that “lands should be given to the states, and the states should sell them to the people ... Public ownership creates conflicts among various interests, such as environmentalists, gold miners, oil companies and ranchers,” he said, and problems will only increase when the economy gets into deeper trouble, as he predicts it will.

My perspective. Billionaire T. Boone Pickens’ wife has created a Nevada sanctuary for the wild horses — clearly, better use of 1 percent-folks’ money than giving more to the government. What little beef I buy will be from grass-fed free-ranging cattle like those owned by Bundy. Reid should be removed as Senate president this November. It’s fun to see the feds back down. I still want to be a cowboy ... .

Keep movin’, movin’, movin’

Though (the feds’r) disapprovin’

Keep them doggies movin’ Rawhide!
