Cattle Guards


Dang city slickers ain’t got a clue!!!

Cattle Guards

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 a
report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado. Because Colorado
ranchers had protested his proposed changes in grazing policies, he ordered the
Secretary of the Interior to fire half of the guards immediately
.

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

Passed on to you without
further commentary.

    That is a lie. Actually, Obama fired private sector cattle guards.
