I really wish they would stop calling paramilitary groups "militias." They are NOT the militia. We all are, dammit.

They do this on purpose to associate the word "militia" with being paramilitary and usually anti-government.

I agree, we all are. And some of us have taken over the BLM complex - those member that have are not anti-government, they are pro-government - anti-tyranny.

So media is making it sound like they haven't done their time. Way it sounds to me a judge decided to give them jail time under the minimum sentance. Now years later they want them to serve the rest of the sentance. The older guy for 3 months and the younger 1 year of a 5 year minimum. Is it me or the judge who ordered them to a wee be less should be at fault for this? I would protest and fight tooth and nail if I served my time before and now they want me back..

Don't get me wrong. I'm not against them. Looks like they have a serious case against the government, and I hope it works out without any pawns getting killed over it, and the right bad guys taking the fall.

So the Afluenza Kid can kill 4 people driving drunk and do no jail time. But these 2 guys burn 140 acres and need another 4 years in prison? Sum Ting Wong here.

Business as usual. How many wealthy people do you see serving time on par with the rest of us, at least those who aren't singled out by the media to be "made an example of"...

Don't even get me started on the affluenza prick..how the hell the psychiatrist who coined that term can live with himself is beyond me... he even regrets it yet chose to testify to its relevance. See what money can do?

I have been trying to follow this and I haven't read anywhere that the Hammonds requested any help. I believe their intentions are to to report as ordered on Monday to finish their sentences.

They didn't. The people who are protesting feel they did their time as sentenced by a judge. Which I agree with.

They also want the entire wildlife refuge to be returned to we the people, which I also agree with but their methods may not be the most desirable.

The issue I see is where do we draw the line? The government takes and takes we complain and complain vote and no much changes. At least these few have the balls to stand up to the big government like we the people should have long ago

It's especially these types of federal agencies which get free passes. They are small enough to have very little oversight by anyone who actually gives a damn because they will make better headlines/waves going after big agencies. So these little ones basically run rampant with impunity over the common man.

I'd sure like to hear from Oregon's elected representatives to Congress about this, the ones that aren't from Portland.
