 Robert LaVoy Finucum is dead, gunned down in the winter snows of Oregon. Max Alexander has provided the best early commentary yet on the shooting. Finicum unceremoniously joins an impressive corpse-pile sponsored by the law enforcement complex in the US. The FBI Orcs were kind enough to release a snuff film apparently showing his murder from a hovering aircraft.

I leave it to other observers to examine the actual shooting footage and arrive at their own conclusions.

All of this may be the whimpering dénouement to the ill-planned stand-off with the Feds at the allegedly Federal Malheur Wildlife Refuge created in 1908 by the progressive Teddy Roosevelt to protect bird plumage from being filched by hunters to provide for the men’s and women’s hat industry in turn of the century America. Not a big concern right now.

The Feds, of course, never left as is their wont. Whether one reads the real history or watches the new crop of media such as Hell on Wheels which captured the bloodthirsty nature of all government in its outstanding fourth season. I would also recommend a viewing of my favorite Kirk Douglas movie, Lonely Are the Brave. Penned by that curmudgeonly anarchist, Ed Abbey.

  1. Wow, Lonely Are The Brave. Great movie. I'm not close to being a cowboy, but I have been feeling about the same way as his character does for a long time. Especially when I was subjected to the newer generation's way of thinking about morals and ethics. Or should I say the lack of? So many of the ones that I worked with over the last few decades felt that they were entitled to promotions and raises just for coming in. Or be rewarded based on gender. And they were. That's not the world that I grew up in. As much as I liked my job and got a real feeling of accomplishment, it became so depressing that I retired at 60 instead of going a few more years as I had originally planned. No place left for me in the modern world............

      Sad. I always say I should have been born around 1810, then going out in style 50+ years later.
