Biden ready to retrain ‘cattle guards’ for 6 months
We needed some humor to end the year and actually don’t make this stuff up – happy new year 2011 !
For those of you who have never traveled to the west or southwest, cattle guards (pictured above) 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.
President Obama received and was reading a report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado.
The 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 President Obama out on the matter, Vice-President Joe Biden, intervened with a request that ‘before any cattle guards were fired, they be given six months of retraining for Arizona border guards.
‘Times are hard’, said Joe Biden, ‘it’s only fair to the cattle guards and their families!’
Honestly, we don’t make this stuff up – happy new year 2011!
