For those of you who have never traveled to the west, or southwest, cattle guards are horizontal steel rails placed at fence openings, in dug-out places in the roads adjacent to highways (sometimes across highways), to prevent cattle from crossing over that area. For some reason the cattle will not step on the "guards," probably because they fear getting their feet caught between the rails

A few months ago, President Obama received and was reading a report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado .. Colorado ranchers had protested his proposed changes in grazing policies, so he ordered the Secretary of the Interior to fire half of the "cattle" guards immediately!!

Before the Secretary of the Interior could respond and presumably try to straighten him out, Vice-President, Joe Biden, intervened with a request that.. before any "cattle" guards were fired, they be given six months of retraining.

And these guys are running our country, OMG!!

The cops were following us home because the driver had forgotten his license and the two Georgia cops thought they had nailed a couple of hippies. They had first taken us to the police station and were visibly disappointed when the radio said of us, "No record. No warrants." So it's the dead of night in the Georgia backcountry woods. We went over the cattle guard first and my erstwhile friend gunned it a bit, thus displacing one of the rollers. The cops drove right into it and "Klunk!" down went a tire. I couldn't stop laughing, but we both got out of the car and from the OTHER side of the guard asked the policemen if they were OK. They stood around wondering what to do and so we did the right thing and helped them extricate their patrol car. We were just renting and didn't stay long, but from then on they would wave at us if we passed each other.
