“The BLM has some unusual bedfellows but when you operate outside of the law and work against the American public…”

Pass the SAFE ActI let it go a month ago; you could Google “Wild Horse” and multiple hits would come up from dozens of publications talking about the Wild Horse Apocalypse where grass crazed unwanted wild horses were multiplying faster than cockroaches and are trampling public lands into oblivion. Give me a break.

The onslaught was so outlandish and over the top I simply let it go and refused to give it any credence as it was obviously motivated by grazing interests who have bought into their own crazed propaganda. “Wild horse herds double in size every four years.” Do the math, dumb ass, every mare, foal, colt and stallion would have to drop a baby to bring that around.

Now, October 2013, the attack has returned with the added twist of sending our wild horses off to slaughter because the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is creating a false emergency by continuing to strip our public lands of federally protected wild horses so that they can warehouse them on private land with their buddies to the tune of $500 bucks per horse per year. Even though the BLM cannot cipher correctly they DO admit that they have more horses warehoused and in concentration camps with their buds than are now free on the range. (50,000 allegedly in private concentration camps with about 25,000 left on the range in unviable herds, thank you very much BLM rocket scientists.)

This has always been the goal, the motivation and the ‘out’ for this federal grazing company; kill the horses and if you Google “wild horse” today you will find articles in PBS, DVM and even Al Jazeera promoting the slaughter of our wild horses in an effort to solve “the problem”. The BLM has some unusual bedfellows but when you operate outside of the law and work against the American public who pays your wages I guess it just drives one to lose their moral compass and listen only to the dark side. I, for one, am sick of it.

I don’t want to hint to conspiracy nor will I strategize online as the federal losers that we fund visit here, daily, but I will say that it is time to fight fire with fire.

Turn up the volume, get the truth out there and bury these lies and outright propaganda with the facts, the science and the conviction that all we red-blooded Americans share…Pass the S.A.F.E. Act!!!!

We have been bullied for the last several weeks by elected thugs in Washington D.C. and those we will deal with come election day but now that the Federal parasites at the BLM are back to work it is time to share, extol, inform others of the fact that our Federal government is working very, very hard (in collusion) to manage our wild equines into permanent extinction.

I, for one, will not stand idly by nor will I go quietly into the night.

We WILL set the truth free and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Keep the faith.

    The sad part about Media is that they are compelled to do a “pro” and “con” even if the pro side has 80% support with most of the data pointing to this side as the correct way to go, and limited financial backing vs the con with 20% support some of the data and all of the financial backing they need.

    The cattlemen’s lobby with our corrupt Senate and House thrown enormous funds around so that they can graze their cattle on OUR (taxpayer!)federal lands for profit. I want their cattle off our lands and leave OUR HORSES ALONE!!

    From what I have heard, there are pro wild horse advocates who think the wild ones ARE over populating. They advocate birth control for the mares.

    Why is the government focusing so hard on the plight of the wild horse? They are because if they focused on anything that was of real importance to this country they would realize there leader is a farce. The wild horses are a rich and fact knowing historical step in our country they were here and brought here when we weren’t even a nation,carried our soldiers, hauled our artillery, and in some cases fed families,in emergencies not as livestock but now were getting rid of them for “grazing” livestock that don’t even supply our country by half.whats the truth? Management is needed,torture,neglect,fear,and famine is not and should not be the answer. If you read what the main “methods”of “humane” euthanasia of equines are, you might have a different opinion of the whole thing and these so called “middle” men need a swift kick in the ass and jailed for there part in the treatment of these descendants of the old west.

      Well said Cherie! And if anyone thinks that slaughter is a humane option-please go out on the net and watch the hidden videos on how it REALLY is done. It will make you sick to your stomach.
