Look at me now, baby! That’s usually a phrase someone would say when they’ve achieved something that no one thought could be done or was, at least, unlikely. For example, I got my master’s degree. I, for one, never thought it would happen, but it did. I know several people who figured I’d drop out of college before getting my bachelor’s, let alone my MBA. So, that’s where I would say “look at me now!” However, this is a different story attached to the phrase.
As many of you know, Nevada may mark the first stand against the federal government that may spark the initial volley into a new revolution or civil war. As militiamen and women converged on the Bundy’s ranch and surrounding area in Clark County, Nevada, we saw something that hasn’t happened in this country since the mid 1800s. We saw armed Americans show up in force against an abusive federal government.
Yesterday, I wrote about the goings on in Clark County, Nevada at the Bundy Ranch. I discussed that the Bureau of Land Management came in to enforce a lawsuit decision that stemmed from the government’s desire to protect the desert tortoise. He has been in dispute with the federal government since 1993.
