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 Ken Salazar could respond, and presumably straighten
him out, Colorado's congressman John Salazar intervened
with a request that before any were fired they be given six
months of retraining.
THESE PEOPLE ARE RUNNING THE COUNTRY??
By the way, Snopes says this is a joke....
Yes, but a good one...
