   Attercliffe  Not sure if you can trust your emergency supplies company? Last Saturday I placed an order for a special offer from Emergency Essentials/BePrepared.com. A couple of days ago I received a mass e-mail informing purchasers of an apparent problem with the item we ordered. It said the company was resolving the matter and would be in touch shortly. This is what I received today:

Please take a look. I don't think I've ever encountered anything like this. Order from this place! You can trust 'em! Other Ldotters love this place as much as I do.

   Safetydude  What is a Lighthouse Lantern and Nomad 7m Solar Panel?

Sounds like something you can get at Nothern Tools, Lowes or Home Depot.

   Attercliffe  SD, The original price for the kit was $119.99 and it was on sale for just over half that--a special deal to announce an exclusive from Goal Zero. I bought two. I have other Goal Zero products from BP and they are all compatible--also, all of them work as promised. I've shopped with BP for must be over ten years now, on and off, and, like EC, am impressed with their quality of goods and service. Monthly sales are always good value.

If you go to the BP site, you'll find examples of the products above. Amazon also carries Goal Zero items--but not the exclusive kit, unless something's changed.

   Straitpath  My uncle, Merrill Bunker married my aunt who was from Utah. Bunkerville, Nevada, where the "range war" took place was named after my uncle's family who settled there as pioneers in the 1800's. I spent happy summers in Bunkerville. The sandy Virgin River rubs through the little hamlet. Those farmers and ranchers who lived in Bunkerville when I was there were truly the good people of the earth. Good looking, smart, ethical, spiritual. I don't know the Bundy family and I am not convinced which side I am on, but I do know those people by and large are good people. And they were willing to die for their beliefs last week. My good cousins were there and finished the day sunburned, relieved and joyous. I truly believe we will not regain our lost freedoms without bloodshed.

   Linder  Enjoyed your story of spending summers on the ranch. Whether they are right or wrong I am in awe of this family and other Westerners who stood up to the Federal Government. They are the last of the rugged individual types who made our country great.

   Safari Man  Greg Hunter has a lot of interesting interviews, many bordering on crackpot (although many of these crackpots make a bunch of sense to me, they just haven been proven correct yet ). Most of the time the people are hawking gold or silver. I am not a gold/silver investor, although I wish I knew more about it. I am convinced we're headed for a bad bad crash and I still don't know how to protect my savings. In any case, this interview was very intersting...

   Flaming Sword  I have a running argument with someone. I say since the Colorado pot laws are in action, car insurance rates will go up for everyone. Maybe not immediately, but they will go up. I found this comment on an insurance website

One study estimates that Coloradans will consume 2.2 million ounces of marijuana next year once new laws go into effect. Hypothetically, if an abundance of pot smokers taking to the road causes crash rates to go up, premiums could rise for all Colorado drivers, not just those who partake.

I say it will eventually rise for everyone there. Any Ldotters in the know want to chime in? This is something I plan to track, just for fun.

   Belwhatter  Cattle ranchers down South are having their property rights endangered by this dominating regime - These brave ranchers are being challenged on every side, land and cattle forcibly confiscated by armed BLM agents, family members physically assaulted. See the latest such incident listed on Drudge today.The excuses vary from free grazing, water rights, and other pettifogging minutiae. This is happening right now in Harry Reid's state.

   Hollyhock  I wonder if one of those ranchers is the one that was on Fox last weekend. They went public and now they will pay. The government is getting way to big and powerful.

"Public Domain" is bogus.

   Rollingcow  I've been reading about this guy for years. Just because you lease land doesn't mean that it's yours and you can stop paying. The only people really speaking at the moment is one or two of this man's 14 children who probably think the land belongs to them as well and think their inheritance is being stolen. The guy's an idiot.

   StormCnter  The rancher highlighted on Drudge is not in the South, but in Nevada. His argument with the government is over federally owned grasslands that his family has leased since 1870. Leasing federal land does not transfer ownership. The BLM is not confiscating Bundy's property, but evicting his cattle from federal lands after courts have ordered him to vacate the land and after he stopped paying leasing fees for the last several years. Mr. Bundy is not a victim. He has said he wants to "pass the land to his children". Well, you don't get to place federal lands into your estate.

   Balogreene  I don't agree with the Government owning so much land. But, these people are leaseholders. 12 years ago, our landlady told us she was selling the house we were leaseholders on. No one would have argued her right to do that. We moved, found out we could afford to buy, and are better off for it. I know this family cannot afford to buy that land (because the Government owns so much of it ), but it is not theirs. Whether they realize it or not, they have had a hundred years of Government Subsidies. It's time to wean them off the public teat.

   Hollyhock  My mistake. I think I got some stories mixed up. The guy I saw on Fox along with the owner of Fender and some others. His Father (now dead ) had sold land in California and then purchased land in Nevada. Maybe some of their grazing land was leased.

   Belwhatter  I saw the family Fox highlighted too - this just seems like more government excess when their efforts could be redirected to more important matters - like closing the border. So many government agencies are now armed to the teeth - when once upon a time the police were the ones we depended on to keep the law.

   Rollingcow  This has been going on for decades, this man has lost in court at least once. I don't have any problem with this one at all. If I ignore the rules I'm in trouble, so should he be no matter how sad his family wants to make it sound.

   Balogreene  The only things that bother me are, the Feds shouldn't own so much land, and the BLM has 200 SWAT members? But, everyone else is following the rules, so should this man.

   StormCnter  I agree that the federal government owns entirely too much land in this country, for instance the feds own 85% of Nevada.
Here is a link where you can see how much federal land is in each state by clicking on Map List at the left.

   Belwhatter  Thank goodness this story is gaining traction - not in lib media of course - but the reliable news sources are running with it. There is much more to this than non payment of taxes - - the Feds have been buzzing the cattle to scare them away from the watering holes, and separating the calves from their mothers milk ensuring the herd will soon collapse. The EPA has a huge interest in getting the ranchers out of business, the prairie tortoise being a convenient excuse, and there is also the real possibility there are rich deposits of oil and gas below the surface, [anathema to the environmental extremists] -development of which can be prevented by commandeering the land. I live in a county way up north which is the poster child for Agenda 21, which has ICLEI actively depriving farmers of water rights, use of their land and related psychobabble of sustainability. The NGOs with fancy names and government grants are perpetrating these insults on good American citizens working to feed the country. This is what is playing out in Nevada. Bundy's ranch is the last one left in his county - the Feds have intimidated and bought out all the others.
