Additional Bundy Ranch thought

by Walter Olson on April 24, 2014

I will not say I told you so for fear of coming off as ungracious, but Coyote has no such compunction:

I could find about a thousand far more sympathetic examples of folks screwed over by government land use regulations — e.g. people whose puddle in the backyard is suddenly a wetlands that they can’t build on. But for some reason Conservatives all rushed to pile on this one example. Stupid.

Only a thousand?

However sympathetic he is symbolically, his legal claims are not good. And his legal acumen isn’t much beyond the median pro se defendant (actually, much lower).

“Conservatives all rushed to pile on this one example” — Rushing to a conclusion here. Some conservatives yes, by no means all or even most. I saw crackpot from the start.

I hear that John Hancock guy was involved in smuggling. And that a bunch of his buddies were tax scofflaws.

I bet Coyote has been on to them for some time too.
