Oregon Gov. Kate Brown Tells Feds: We Want Bundy Out--Now!

Bundy militants leaving a press conference at the
Malheur Wildlife Refuge
"Oregon Governor Kate Brown defied a request by federal authorities to remain mum on the occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to blast the feds for letting the Bundy-led militants hole up there for (20) days and counting, The Oregonian reports...

...She said that while she wouldn't do or say anything to compromise the federal government's efforts to resolve the situation, she urged that they take action to end the occupation and bring relief to residents.

'The situation is absolutely intolerable and it must be resolved immediately,' Brown said in a press conference where she also laid out policy proposals.  'The very fabric of this community is being ripped apart.'

Brown said the residents of Harney County have been 'overlooked and under served by federal officials' response thus far.'

Brown added the 'spectacle of lawlessness must end.'

eye'm thynkin':  Amen!  

Federal officials want to avoid another Ruby Ridge.  That's great.  But how long are the people who call Harney County home supposed to wait to get their towns back?  Are their rights less important than the out-of-state rabble living in the refuge? The fact that the militants are coming into town to taunt residents at community meetings and are then being allowed to return to the refuge; added to the facts that they are free to hold daily press conferences and bulldoze new roads, through Native American archaeological sites is not going unnoticed by the rest of the country.

While law officials are coddling the lawless, the rest of Harney county is paying the price.  It is beyond ridiculous.
