Occupy BLM?

(Image from:  FOX News)

A couple nights ago a group of ranchers took a page from the Occupy Wall Street Playbook and set up camp at a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) facility in Oregon.

Meanwhile, the FBI is urging for a peaceful resolution to the situation.

While ranchers usually aren't leftist-types, like the Occupy Wallstreeters, it's hard to feel sympathy for their plight when the cadre have been convicted of crimes--and are currently squatting on government property.

On the other hand, I'm not a fan of the government's militarization of civilian agencies. 

Remember the so-called shutdown, which turned park rangers into "Imperial Park Troopers?"
