    Cutting the road is classic insurgent 101, boulders would have been even funnier!

  • Ya it’s funny till someone dies.get those water abusers


      It’s just good to see people still have a sense of style and a do it yourself approach to the world.

      America was based on this before it was destroyed from the inside, sliced up, and the people forced to live under slavery.

      Jeez, King George didn’t even levy the amount taxes and violence we see today. The difference is back then Men were Men, not what we see in this day and age and people had the balls to resist tyranny, instead of jumping on the bandwagon because they are too weak to create their own world.

      RIP America.

      • Yeah, I know what you mean about when men were men, but taking your testosterone out for a spin by making a huge problem for an already struggling watershed is the wrong kind of manliness for sure.

        • Ever heard of rain fall catchments? Dirka dirka!
          But hey its ok if he’s on the grid wasting water as long as he pays for it right.

          • LAZY SKUNK RANCH

            Hence the push for the bean counters to put meters on private wells! As their pension scheme falls they will look to steal anything possible from people VESTED in their properties, simply to keep propping it up. It can’t go on forever!

            I would think it pretty funny to see your average government worker having to run a “lemonaid stand” and turn a profit, it would be completely foreign to them…..profit is a place in Italy or somewhere they would think.

            Still, it would have been very funny to cut the road out and keep their convoy stuck in the hills until THEY fixed the road or bought a few dozen portable bridges.

            portable bridges to them would be like water bladders to back to landers- oh the irony!

            Love & Peace For People!

            People Don’t Wear Uniforms- Robots Do!

  • No, seriously, we were just in the middle of putting a new culvert in.

  • I think its almost obvious these twerps were looking for water – not trying to block access.

    The backhoe was concentrated on the blue/purple dirt/clay. That color is evidence of water via spring source.

    If we could see more of the terrain weay even see a slight riperian zone with alders or ferns or maples.

    These guys likely did not have the connections to give themselves a couple of hours of backhoe digging b4 a raid.

    Digging out your road is the only way to Insure the tribe can not steal every belonging you have. Operation last year had nothing to do with the environment it was based on who they could get the most equity from. The tribal police wrote across my neighbors home ” money hoes and grows is all the white boy knows” as parting words.
