FWD: from Colorado

Subject: from Colorado

Good for a chuckle :)

For those who have never traveled to the great West, cattle guards are
horizontal steel rails placed at fence openings on highways to prevent
cattle from crossing. For some reason the bovines will not step on the
guards, probably because they fear getting their feet caught between the
rails. We need to make that clear in order for everyone to appreciate the
following story.

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

Before Salazar could respond, and presumably straighten him out, California’s
congresswoman Nancy Pelosi intervened with a request that before any were
fired they be given six months of retraining.

Geez they went and screwed up an old joke. Its supposed to read that Obama wanted to fire the "guards" in order to save revenue and cut personnel.

But the bit about retraining them is mildly funny.

Meh. Whatever. An ok joke that they messed up. I've heard it before applied to other politicians.
