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.

Although this is funny but false, there is a political event that you won't believe that is true. Check out the youtube entry for Georgia Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson speaking to Navy Admiral Robert Willard concerning troop movements on Guam. This fine elected official actually believes the island would capsize.

I agree. I can't help but wonder two things:
1) Why is this guy in office?
2) What kind of constituant base would put him there in the first place?

You're kidding right ? A Texan, spending most of his life on a ranch not knowing what a cattle guard is ?

Think you meant to say a community organizer from Illinois, now living in Washington..
