Cattle Guards

Cattle Guards

AND THESE PEOPLE ARE RUNNING THE COUNTRY??

For those who have never traveled to the great West, cattle guards are horizontal steel rails placed at fence openings on highways to prevent cattle from crossing. For some reason the bovines will not step on the guards, probably because they fear getting their feet caught between the rails. We need to make that clear in order for everyone to appreciate the following story.
President Obama received a report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado. Because Colorado ranchers protested his proposed changes in grazing policies; he ordered Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar to fire half of the guards immediately.
Before Salazar could respond, and presumably straighten him out, California's congresswoman Nancy Pelosi intervened with a request that before any were fired they be given six months of retraining.

it actually is a very old hoax fiction perpetrated during the Clinton administration, and recently updated.

I do not doubt, however, that there are people in the current administration just that dumb--or even dumber.

Cattle Guards, I heard this also, probley in the early 80's. Story I heard that some nitwit back in DC, wanted to cutoff all gov. moneys for Hiways in the State of New Mexico, untill the state fired at least half their Cattle Guards.
I really believe this shyte is true.

Years back, my dad told me he had a horse that would walk on top of the rails, and get out of the yard.
