Fighting Obama!

We discovered something important a few days ago about the federal Bureau of Land Management. (Many Americans also discovered the existence of the Bureau of Land Management on the same occasion.) Anyway, the BLM, as it is fondly known in the American West, has snipers in its ranks. For some of our overseas friends: a sniper is a specially trained rifleman or woman with a super-powerful weapon who can kill someone at long distance, often with a single shot. The discovery took place on the occasion of a confrontation about a few hundred cattle between the BLM and the cattle’s owners.

That A.. H… Putin had better not try anything illegal or immoral with American cows. The dictator of Russia is now reconsidering his aggressiveness. The Obama administration wins another one!

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    Jacques — Fact: BLM owns the land where Bundy’s cattle graze. Fact: BLM is entitled by law to charge grazing fees. Fact: Bundy hasn’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. Fact: BLM as part of its mandate to prevent over-grazing may round up any trespassing cattle. Fact: Bundy’s theory that his family history of working the range entitles him to ownership has been tested in Court twice, and lost twice. Opinion: Reid and Obama have chosen to have this confrontation in order to show voters that their opponents are a bunch of gun nuts out to defy the authority of the Federal Government. Recommendation: Opponents of Reid and Obama should copy Bill Clinton’s ‘Sister Soulja’ moment and disown Bundy. This issue will backfire even more than the ill-fated government shutdown did. Query: Why does the opposition repeatedly allow itself to be trapped into taking stupid positions like this?

  2. kamprint: Have I said anything in favor of the Bundy family? My guess is that if I looked into it I would agree that they don’t have a leg to stand on legally, but, snipers? Next time: drones?
