Bundy Boys Call Community Meeting, Promise To Dictate Their Exit Strategy

As long as we all understand that they think they're calling the shots.

The Bundy boys and their cohorts have called a community meeting where they will outline the terms and times of their exit.

According to The Oregonian, they will hold a community meeting at 7 PM at a place to be determined.

"I think there should be a dialogue," said Finicum, a sidearm on his hip. The militants, who have held the refuge for well over a week, intend to remind the community why they are there and announce a departure plan.

Finicum did not reveal any details about the plan. He said he was only relaying a message from Arizona businessman Ammon Bundy, the leader of the militants, who did not appear Tuesday at a press conference that the group has held daily at the refuge. Bundy will attend the meeting on Friday, Finicum said.

Well, that's mighty big of them, isn't it? To "dialogue" with a town full of people that want them to leave and let them take care of themselves.

The group is working on securing a location in Burns for the meeting, Finicum said. The announcement comes a day after the militants destroyed a public fence at the refuge and county residents demanded at a community meeting that Bundy and his group leave.

Really, it doesn't sound like they need a dialogue as much as they need to pick up their asses and get out of town.
