"just allowing a freeloader to not pay for grazing rights?"
Please note this was not about freeloader grazing, this was about the Feds demanding he shrink his herds (and all other ranchers their herds) by 90% so that precious water would not be used for agricultural reasons and more can be diverted to urban California residents (larger voter pool).
Go read....you'll learn that if this was just about the $1/head of cattle, there would be no issue. But it wasn't. And if you think it was, you need to STFU because you haven't read enough of this to even have two bits worth of awareness about what is going on.
"Managing land to keep it from being destroyed like it was during the Dust Bowl is important and costs money."
That is NOT what they're doing. In fact, ruminant grazers are important for preventing the dustbowl type scenarios.
"but your rationalizations are arbitrary and capricious"
My rationalizations are far less arbitrary and capricious than .gov
"somehow you use that to justify murdering people (or at least threatening to.)"
No, you seem to have things reversed. I'm arguing for people's rights to defend themselves against arbitrary and capricious government thugs who are threatening to murder people.
