    Will the admission fees collected be used to help Bundy pay some of the millions he owes in grazing fees? Will there be banjo and fiddle music?

    I gotta admit I love banjo and fiddle. Some silly gospel quire just won’t do it for me. 😉

    I am happy to support real ranchers who “obey honor and sustain the law”. If the money is going to delusional melon farmers, than I’ll take a hard pass.

    This fundraiser is only to raise money for the Bundy and Finicum families, plus a few other men in jail awaiting trial for Bunkerville. It is not for “ranchers”, in fact only Cliven Bundy is a rancher. The rest of his family are not ranchers. This “announcement” has been misrepresented by the organizers of the event so more people will attend.

    What a sham.
