Bundy recognizes feds as it suits him

Cliven Bundy does not recognize the federal government or the laws of the land. He has an ongoing dispute with the Bureau of Land Management and has not paid grazing fees for 20 years.

Bundy has ignored all the decisions of the courts that have not agreed with him and has been ordered to pay the grazing fees.

Now it appears that Bundy is preparing to sue the federal government for its actions in trying to round up his cattle to sell at auction in order to collect unpaid and past-due grazing fees.

How is it Bundy does not recognize the federal government when it’s time to pay up for grazing on BLM lands, but does recognize the federal government when he wants to sue it for trying to enforce the laws that he has broken?
