Policy dispute results in 50,000 cattle guards being fired …

This is being internet-blasted  … unlikely, but funny …

A few months ago, President Obama received a report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado .

Colorado ranchers had protested some proposed government imposed changes in grazing policies, so the President 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 him out, Vice-President, Joe Biden, intervened with a request that … before any “cattle guards” were fired, they be given six months of retraining.

At least they didn’t file a lawsuit against the Colorado cattle.

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.
