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 defined 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.
