Ammon Bundy: How Are The Children? Updated


                             THE ABOVE ILLUSTRATION AND THE ONE BELOW
                              ARE TAKEN FROM THE "BOOK OF MORMON."

Where are you going with this?

What the hell are you doing?

Is there anyone there that realizes that this isn't something to put children through?

Do you value land, cattle and your blind ego more than you do those kids?

When is the last time that you sat with one of those young ones on your lap,
hugged that child and thought about the price that you're expecting that kid to

Listen, Ammon...they're just children and your fight is your own...not theirs.

I remember when a man walked up to me in the lobby of the Best Western hotel in Burns
and asked me, "How are you doing today?"

I said, "I'm dandy as candy and as fine as frog's hair."

What I want to know now is when you're going to gently ask each of those children how
they are doing. I think that it is about time for you to hear their honest answers. Put away
your bias and your gun. Then ask them one by one, Ammon.

You are so far beyond a convicted murderer, or a pathetically insecure jerk of a foster
parent or a totally stupid young buck in camouflage gear. You know better, Ammon. So
why not walk away from those fools for awhile and share a conversation with the kids.

Shut your mouth and open your heart.

Dial down all of the other voices except the ones that belong to the children.

Listen, Ammon...and learn.
