…and getting awfully close to that 19th of April date which, for some reason, the Feds seem drawn to like a FLAME for coming down heavy, and leaving somebody…in flames.

More: From the Las Vegas CBS affiliate:
LAS VEGAS — The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years.
The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte.
The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy’s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said she was thrown to the ground by an officer.
With more Bundy supporters pouring in from around the country, safety concerns began to grow.
The I-Team has learned the deal to end the gather was brokered by Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie.
Though, isn’t it ODD how eveything has to simmer down RIGHT QUICK when HARRY REID’S DIRTY DEALINGS get stirred into this righteous “deadbeat cowboy didn’t pay his fees and is torturing tortoises” mix?
Koch brothers, my ass.
UPDATE: Cliven Bundy demands that all Park Rangers DISARM within an hour. Mounted local ranchers wait out that hour. pic.twitter.com/N5fWIcxlDp
