    This is violence in the name of political or judicial change.

    So, isn't this terrorism?

    It's a remote building 30 miles from the nearest town in the middle of Nowhere, Oregon. Maybe the best thing to do is ignore it for a while. Don't give their demands any legitimacy.

    Well the delusional guy basically thinks they have already toppled the BLM so that ship has sailed. The more time they are allowed to hold federal property without punishment is further legitimizing them to me. Besides, he is calling for more and more people to join them. I don't want this thing to grow anymore than it already has.

    If only there were this thing called the National Guard perhaps?

    This is domestic terrorism. They have taken over a federal building with armed militiamen according to this story.

    Cut off the electricity, blockade the roads, and jam their communications. They'd last about a week.

    Who have they hurt? Got any hostages? Have they even threatened anyone?

    Just who are they terrorizing?

    That should drive any sane person crazy. Maybe, they'll just leave under such a viscious assault. I would.

    Or not. They might just enjoy the attention. I doubt any of that would bother these guys in the least.

    In phone interviews from inside the occupied building Saturday night, Ammon Bundy and his brother, Ryan Bundy, said they are not looking to hurt anyone. But they would not rule out violence if police tried to remove them, they said.

    "The facility has been the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds," Ammon Bundy said.

    "We're planning on staying here for years, absolutely," he added. "This is not a decision we've made at the last minute."

    Ian Kullgren, a reporter for The Oregonian, posted on Twitter that he had spoken by phone with Mr. Bundy on Sunday morning.

    I talked to Ryan Bundy on the phone again. He said they're willing to kill and be killed if necessary. #OregonUnderAttack
