High plains moochers
Krugman nails it again on regressive support for 'takers' like Bundy. The regressives make him into a hero because he challenges the government, as if that alone were the issue. They rail against takers and lawbreakers when it's the downtrodden or poor but when it's the upper class it's just fine. Bundy is benefiting by stealing from public land, plain and simple. And with militia support it is armed robbery. To elevate a thief into a hero is the worst kind of dumbing down possible, their Duck Dynasty moment. Which tells us a lot about why they hate education, as an ignoramus is much easier to manipulate with misinformation and demagoguery, or Fox News in a nutshell.
