Jefferson drafted the Kentucky Resolutions to nullify the federal government’s Alien and Sedition laws. Jesus died on the cross because the Pharisees were upholding their law. I raised these facts to prove that law and justice are not harmonious.
Most of the ranchers have gone out of business because they cannot afford to pay punitive grazing fees and still operate profitably. This means that the consumer will now have to pay higher prices for beef, due to the decrease in meat production. Plus, the militarized BLM cost the taxpayer untold millions, whereas, the Bundy operation doesn’t cost the taxpayer anything.
Animal activists should be reprimanding the BLM because now, instead of cattle being able to run happily upon thousands of acres, all future cattle that could have roamed those public lands may spend their life at an industrial feedlot.
Charles De Montesquieu once said, “There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.” I believe after decades of imposing legal fines and after the BLM’s militaristic tactics used against Americans, the government should forgive the penalties and divest acreage to Mr. Bundy to run his operation effectively. This is the most peaceful and just solution. But that is a fantasy since the nature of the state is to increase power and enact retribution against those who don’t follow its rule.

Faithful officialspray for city, county
My wife and I attended the National Day of Prayer event downtown. We were not only blessed by the program, music, prayers and message, but also by the many city and county officials who attended.
We’d like to commend Mayor Goodnight for his commitment to personally deliver the proclamation rather than send a representative. We were filled with a sense of pride to see Chief Rob Baker, Capt. Chris Smith and several other of Kokomo’s finest, all in uniform, standing in support of prayer.
The very windy and overcast weather didn’t prevent Kokomo Councilwoman Cindy Sanders or County Commissioners Tyler Moore and Paul Wyman from attending. As my wife stood behind me, attempting to escape the wind, she noticed Judge Murray standing in attendance, braving the elements in a dress.
Kokomo is blessed indeed to have men and women in leadership who understand the importance of praying for our great city.
