More than just “Corruption”

When we say that someone is corrupt or an agency is plagued by corruption, the words are indicated for general inadequacies that perhaps are more or less widespread rather than a definepexels-photo-60112.jpegd flaw in ones individual character. Also, they are corrupt from external evils. Example: ” The agency is corrupt” that could mean anything from the way they do business with many others, or how they operate their organizations based on really bad judgement and lack of sincerity. What I would like to discuss with you today is what “Moral Integrity” is; what it means, and how it applies to the many offices of our country that make so many of the rules, laws, and justifications that the country is asked to abide by, and supposedly stand by and support these decisions. Because America is based on democracy , the people may vote on laws by the people and for the people. Okay this already is sounding like a thing of the past right?!  In Abraham Lincoln’s Day yes, today? Not so much…..

Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles, or moral uprightness. It is generally a personal choice to hold oneself to consistent moral and ethical standards. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one’s actions.Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles, or moral uprightness.

Certainly I find these two words to be mankind’s key to a solid and stable relationship with not only one another but our fellow inhabitants of our beautiful Earth; the animals. As we only have one Earth you would think that all that is done for mankind is done with “Moral Integrity”with what is best for all, it isn’t. When considering the acts of government officials , moral integrity is the farthest thing from anything  they do…..of course that isn’t the case with the Bureau of Land Management, now here is a government entity that strives in all instances and actions to be morally and ethically correct while practicing their morally correct faces in front of their morally correct mirrors to appear honest, trustworthy, considerate, knowledgable, and open to diversity, excellence, and integrity. Let there be the Liars, for the BLM works only for healthy horses on healthy ranges. Laugh out Loud; that in itself is the purest form of moral integrity if I ever saw it…. An “Oxymoron” = a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction (e.g., faith unfaithful kept him falsely true ).a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction (e.g., faith unfaithful kept him falsely true ). If only their internal compass included moral integrity; not only is the organization caught in countless lies and cover-up’s,  but they have absolutely NO MORAL INTEGRITY! and how different it can and should be; this is something that the people and congress needs to ask itself today………are we as a country willing to continue to have in the publics employ an organization such as the BLM that is not based on what our country has always tried to include in its laws and actions of moral integrity? the lack of the ability to really protect our animals and public lands, to admittedly prefer to the killing of America’s Wild Horses, instead of correcting the problem they themselves have purposely caused? thousands of Horses and Burros in cattle pens while the livestock hoard the horses rightful public lands to graze on? Hear ye, Hear ye, now serving up an abundance of “Moral Integrity” please pass the dish to the Bureau of Land management and its supporters, please.

Native American Horses, Not Feral, Not Livestock…..

Now wouldn’t it be so much better if at least the Bureau of Land Management was more of an office that you could make sense of? I mean honestly, they say they care about the Wild Horses and Burros but do nothing short of issuing death notices for them. When they cater to the livestock industry and call Wild Horses livestock, I don’t know how you all feel but for me…..it is an insult to these animals that have been here longer than any of us! millions of years. If I hear “Feral” one more time! it is their favorite name to call them when issuing those death notices as if its makes it all okay! it doesn’t…..all it does is confuse the public and of course that is what they want to accomplish. You especially will hear and read about those definitions of Wild Horses in their notices and editorials that just want to remind us all that they are not native wildlife, they are like the cattle/livestock…..to be treated like livestock, shot or shocked in the head like livestock, and slaughtered like livestock. Wild Horses are Native Wildlife in America, it has been proven over and over again, and still you will not hear the Bureau of Land Management give them the title they scientifically own. Now one way of looking at this is that they really do not want to associate them with the word “Native” because they would have to protect them! like the sage grouse or other hunting trophies out West. That is the real reason, none other. That has been proven also, it also is the reason why we can’t get them on any endangered species list. Then again, this government in place in this period of time does not want the endangered species list at all and all species are in danger of no longer being protected, at least if they have it their way.  Equus Callibus, a part of America, this earth; for millions of years…..still must fight for their freedom, their place in our hearts; they are worth protecting for us Americans, for pexels-photo-459124.jpegour future generations….just not worth it to those who manage them. Prove me wrong. I dare anyone that can show me how they have managed the West to protect this species; it just isn’t there. The history will only show how land has been taken away, unheard of experiments being done on them, and a slow road to extinction but even with this they are accelerating the slow death theory, now they just want to outright kill them all. How disgusting this all really is……sorry calling them names won’t help….I’ve already tried it! It does seem to help a little though?, a few choice names I can share with you, if you should need them; but…..I get the feeling you all have a few of your own. Till next time……

 

 

 

Really? We Thought You Loved Wild Horses!

So really what we intend to reveal is another fact that most people are not aware of. Often I reflect on the fact that the Bureau of Land Management has a conflict of interest. The conflict of interest is because of this…..”the Bureau of Land Management was originally first called the Division of Grazing,  later was renamed the U.S. Grazing Service in 1939. The responsibilities were to enforce the act, which leased public lands to farmers and ranchers for grazing. … The BLM was given the responsibilities of the former U.S. Grazing Service and General Land Office.the Secretary of the Interior combined the Grazing Service and the General Land Office to form the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in 1946. The BLM was given the responsibilities of the former U.S. Grazing Service and General Land Office.”(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Grazing_Service). In light of their coddling of ranching and the livestock industry it is pretty easy to see the conflict of interest here. Their ability to manage Wild Horses is mandated by this history with ranchers for ranchers and by ranchers. The Wild Horses and Burros have never been viewed by this entity as equal or getting a fair share of grazing land. As a matter of fact the greater majority of grazeable public land has been alloted for cattle and sheep over the years with removing the Horses and Burros;  the Mustangs and Burros have been corralled into a 10% allotment for their HMA’s and penned up in holding facilities to make room for Livestock! This is not what the 1971 Wild Horse and Burros Act set out to do for these native Wild Species of America; so there we have more lies, misappropriation, and downright biased management principles by the Bureau. We the People of the United States want these Native animals returned to their original land that they were on before the BLM decided to remove thousands of them. These removals have disrupted the horse herds and have created a situation that the horses compensate for, their natural order is disrupted by compensatory breeding. Now, it seems to me that instead of using PZP (Porcine Zona Pellucida)to render them sterile by too much use, or sterilization, or killing them; there should be an effort to stabilize the herds to what they once were. No more removals. Pretty straightforward, natural fertility control, yes……Mother Nature does know best! and does work! leave the Wild Horses and Burros alone; they know how to regulate their numbers; Nature dictates the course…I’ll be writing more in the coming days concerning “Compensatory Breeding” this is what the BLM has created, this is what they have designed with their lack of interest, lack of integrity, and lack of knowledge besides the principle of what is supported as fair and equal treatment of all wildlife and their needs. Onward BLM, but you are not going to kill OUR WILD MUSTANGS any longer. New Wild Horse and Burro Caretakers….PLEASE.pexels-photo-221164.jpeg

 

Captured to be Killed

pexels-photo-614505.jpeg

As I write again today concerning Our American Wild Horses; I am constantly reminded of their possible death sentences. How the Bureau of Land Management wants to kill them all after hauling them off of their rightful lands, and to destroy not protect. Their intentions have never been to return them, the intentions have been clear that the tearing apart of the 1971 Wild and Free Roaming Act also has been indicative to disassembling their protections to slowly but surely deplete legal laws and acts that would hold them responsible for their extinction. So that they could kill. When you begin by killing 100,000 animals and render the rest of them sterilized, that is extinction. There will be no more wild horses once the sterilized horses or burros die off on the ranges. The Bureau of Land Managements Extinction Recipe for Wild Horses and Burros must never come to fruition. Americans love and cherish the Wild Horses and Burros; the horses need a new organization to manage them. The public does not trust this organization from past scenarios of sending them to slaughter houses….remember Tom Davis? I’m sure you have not forgotten either.(https://www.denverpost.com/2015/10/23/federal-report-colorado-wild-horse-buyer-sold-mustangs-for-slaughter/). How could we? yes they were found guilty of selling federally protected wild horses and burros to Tom Davis; well-known Kill-Buyer. The BLM claimed they had no idea that the animals were going to be sold for slaughter. More lies as they had done business with Tom Davis before. The BLM received no fines, nothing. The taxpayers only received more lies. This of course is government justice. What about those horses? Between 2008 and 2012, La Jara rancher and livestock hauler Tom Davis bought 1,794; now figure out how much he paid and his profits. The horses were sold for $25.00 a piece lets say (selling authority price) $44,850 Davis supposedly paid; then took them to slaughter where they are paid by the pound….75 cents to 1.50 per pound. Horses can range up to 1,000 lbs. For ease of understanding this; 1,794 horses @ 1000 lbs. each equals: 1,794,000 x 1.50 per lb. =$2,691,000 Dollars. Quite the profit for Mr. Davis, and illegal. No money was returned, nothing happened to Mr. Davis, he is living his life $2,691,000 dollars richer…..or…..was the money split up between the parties? Only the Bureau of Land Management and Tom Davis would know. One thing is for sure; American Wild Horses and Burros mean nothing to this organization…..never have……never will.

 

Compassion

What a beautiful word. To me it possesses everything that I truly love passionately in my life ; the lives that are denied love or comfort in this material world of ours. Often we see daily now people who need our compassion, to understand them, to help them, and even save them from all types of atrocities. The animals, so many of them neglected, abused, thrown away like everyday garbage unworthy of anyones love or attention. Today I am thinking about how compassion has a place in the lives of the 100,000 Wild Horses and Burros the Bureau of Land Management has proposed to kill. Honestly in my wildest dreams I never thought that in such a civilized country; this agency would even suggest killing these majestic animals. Stripped of their Freedom to make room for cattle and sheep; and now they must die? How un-compassionate can one get you ask? well they certainly are going to set a fine example for American youth now won’t they. Now…..one can say allot for compromises and personally I think that Americans have been very patient with the agency; they are known for their lies concerning the Wild Horse population for so long now it fly’s past the average person as a truth. The numbers they put out on AML (appropriate management levels) is so ridiculous that you have to sit back and just laugh in dismay at just how stupid they really think we are. In fact there is no humor in the ridiculousness; for me only profound sadness; because they want these animals off of public land no matter what it takes. That in itself is sad when you think about the West; how we began this country on their backs. All Americans must be heard on this issue, whether you are compassionate or not……do you believe in doing what is right? in our opinion and our compassion the right thing to do is give these horses back their land that was taken away. Wild Horses use only 10% of the nations public land resources, the cattle industry ranchers takes the rest.

Now that you know that; isn’t it right?

RETURN AMERICA”S WILD HORSES TO FREEDOM!
