You know, back when I was at the National Training Center in California (NTC - if you've been there you know exactly what I'm talking about) - we were told that if we harmed a desert tortoise that we would be charged (and here the figures varied) right around $50,000. Of course I myself did not see any desert tortoise, I don't know of anyone else who actually saw a desert tortoise, but the threat was still there. So, if indeed the BLM did damage the desert tortoise home, then the BLM should be charged (after a full and complete investigation including armed guards for those during the investigation, a full clean tent enclosure, multiple specialists on the desert tortoise, etc.) for each and every desert tortoise that was in any way harmed by the BLM.
Okay, obviously that's just silly, but look at what the federal government is trying to do in this case. What we have is a federal versus state land dispute. If indeed the BLM did damage that farmer's property and kill his cows then the government of the United States (which would be our tax dollars by the way) should be fully financially responsible for any damage that was done to the farmer's assets. The federal government should actually watch the news - oh wait, never mind this type of news is not reported on any of the big 3 networks. Okay then, the feds should watch Fox news or go to some of the independent news sites and actually see what Americans are doing in the face of this type of nearly fascist (Full Definition of FASCISM: 1 - often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. 2 - a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control <early instances of army fascism and brutality — J. W. Aldridge>) administration.
Now those may seem like very extreme words, and something that may be in some people's point of view a little over-the-top, to call our current administration names like totalitarian, aristocracy, autarchy, autocracy, bureaucracy (government by civil servants), foolocracy, hyperarchy, kakistocracy, kleptocracy, snobocracy, squatterarchy, despotocracy, but it is sad that such terminology can even be thought of with the office of the president of the United States in mind.
Rather than those terms wouldn't it be great to look at the United States government and think terms like: aristarchy, capelocracy, democracy, ergatocracy, heroarchy, idiocracy, merocracy, mesocracy, nomocracy, psephocracy (minus the voter fraud), theatrocracy? We are a democratic representative republic, the problem is those who represent us are taking their own interest to heart before ours. Vote for me, and let's start down the road to real recovery towards reclaiming American exceptionalism!
