eMail of the Day

Forwarded to me by my buddy Mark.

I've no idea if this is true or not. I could use Snopes to check it out but that would spoil the fun. Besides, knowing the two men is highly plausible--except for the part of training them as border guards.

This one is beyond STUPID!!!

Retraining for 'Cattle Guards'!

You will love this one, I haven't stop laughing yet.

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. 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!'

And these two guys are running our country, OMG!

Passed on to you without further comment... Now you do the same.
