Well, there was a set-to of sorts. The feds seized Bundy's cows, thereby stirring up a confrontation between federal agents and Bundy with a gaggle of his Tea Party-type relatives and friends, some of them armed, and after some spiffy 5 o'clock news footage of shouting and sign-waving outraged citizens packing their heat and slinging their long guns, the feds retreated and later restored the cows too.
Jon Stewart carried out an elaborate mock of this idiot that you should watch. Give a look:
I'm interested in what this says about us as a country. Does it really depend on who's breaking the law to determine whether the law is enforced? Seems so. The feds say they feared for the safety of Bundy and his gang of right-wing nut cases. That's why they left. But that wasn't the case with the David Koresch Bible cult in Waco, was it? And do you think for a second, a millisecond, the feds would have retreated before anti-war protesters, occupy Wall Street types, or pro-environment activists?
