Rancher’s handouts

Once again the extreme right shows their ignorance. Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who illegally grazes his livestock on public land without paying the modest fee, has the audacity to make bigoted remarks about African-Americans taking subsidies from the government. What does he think he is doing? Or is it all right to grab government handouts if you are white and “deserve” the right to take benefits from the government?

It seems these right-wingers are against any government support unless it helps them. Sheldon Adelson, the casino owner, hates government regulations but wants government to control online gambling — how ironic! The Koch brothers have enjoyed tremendous growth in their wealth under the present administration, yet hate President Barack Obama’s policies. Why? I believe racism is alive and well in America.
