Cliven Bundy. Remember that guy? Hates the government? But owes the government over a million dollars in unpaid grazing fees and related fines?
Yeah, that guy.
So some woman and her boyfriend were driving on a road near the Bundy ranch and couldn’t stop fast enough to avoid several of Bundy’s cows in the road. Kabam! Two injured people and one dead cow.
She’s suing Bundy for $20,000 in medical expenses because he didn’t keep his cows fenced in.
“It’s a state problem, it’s not our problem,” Bundy said. “We really feel bad when it happens. We sure don’t want it to happen, but we’re not liable.”
Okay, so let me see if I have this right. You want to keep your cows on government property free of charge because you hate the government. But the government is responsible to keep your fence in good repair while you don’t pay your fees to them?
The crowning tea party thinking?
Bundy said he was within his rights to make a claim against Beck for the loss of his livestock.
“The person whose car hit that cow is liable to me,” Bundy said.
Sometimes it’s just so damn crazy that you don’t know whether to take a nap or dance nakkid on the back porch.
Thanks to Deb B for the heads up.
