The way I understand it, there is an order that permits the Bureau of Land Management to remove Mr. Bundy’s cattle from some land to protect the desert turtle. We already know that, according to the president and the attorney general, they can choose to enforce whatever law they want to and not enforce others.
That leaves me to question: What is it about what is playing out in Nevada that makes this particular case worthy of prosecution, no matter what? Something does not meet the eye here and maybe it will be revealed soon enough.
Here’s an example of “selective enforcement” pertaining to protected animals. It’s okay for windmills to kill bald eagles, according to obama, but for some reason it is so very important to “save” the desert turtle.
Under pressure from the wind-power industry, the Obama administration said Friday it will allow companies to kill or injure eagles without the fear of prosecution for up to three decades.
Interesting, isn’t it?
