About Photographer and Journalist

It is time to embrace wisdom, as ignorance is inexcusable, do I write about and photograph nature to convey its significance to us all. My opinions are conveyed from life, and are just what they are with no excuses. Just a simple thought here and there, take it or leave it.

Wild Horses Sacrificed: Rhetoric and Corruption and the Information Age of Confusion = Reality versus Immorality and Careful What You Ask For

Today in government, as well as Watchdog Groups and many Non-Profits, there exist problems of credibility.  How do we know this?  The money obtained within all of them, donation steams, or taxpayer dollars, all are based upon a tremendous amount of lies, misinformation, emotion-driven rhetoric, and perpetuation of situations that are so convoluted that in reality, no resolution would ever exist.  Only then the supposed guarantee of an outcome or a resolution develops (a made-up resolution to resolve a made-up crisis or what legally is termed Corruption or Organized Crimes), that in reality never happens; which, it was a situation based upon a lie, and how does one resolve a lie?

Well, by developing more misinformation, and as in today and the Wild Horses, for example, simply distort the misinformation so badly, that the slightest recommendation toward resolution, by both government misinformation and non-profits misinformation streams, obviously the collusion exists, create very profitable streams of emotion-driven monetary profits, for all involved.

One can become very rich by simply perpetuating a situation that will never, nor can ever, obtain resolution of any type.  This is one large factor of reality, why we have Over-Site of government agencies, and must keep them in check (obviously our Checks and Balance System of government is broken today).

Currently, we live in an information age that many people assume they know something about everything; that is, until we actually speak with them, and then find they really know nothing at all.  If one needs one of many other confirmable examples of this, simply peruse journalistic articles on the Wild Horses written by people on the East Coast, or in large cities, and about the ongoing developments on the range and in the mountains, on the west coast.

We find many of those journalists never get past the breakroom or office water cooler, and all of their info developed from their computer . . . so we convey here corruption creates more corruption, then ironically, and almost comically, those who write about the corruption and ignore the truth or simply ignorant of the truth, speak about how to resolve this same corruption . . .

This creates a collusion even more vast than those directly involved, whether knowingly or not, and profoundly all take part in the corrupt rhetoric of misinformation flows (e.g. using Bureau of Land Management statistics, when obvious their wild horse herd counts biologically impossibilities, and yet use those numbers) —  and the ol’ virtue of when repeated enough, it simply becomes acceptable?

The circumstance then becomes compounded by several reality situations, even more outstanding than others and within an academic observation (academic due to observable and quantified data gathering).  This fact is, and among the many other outstanding facts, that many people simply do not read well, or some hardly at all, and others perhaps not knowing how to read.  There also are people who know how to read, or listen to facts, but do not understand what it is they read, or facts are just not absorbed well within their mental process.  We then observe a twisted and distorted informational-mass of confusion.  Gibberish follows, and the truth, even though given the facts contrary to what they have seen or heard, turns into simply a vast quagmire of nonsense.

We then get to the emotional side of these situations, and discover how Canned-Presentations of Misinformation most often untrue or just enough truth combined with rhetoric, essentially hides the Communication meant to Manipulate rather than Inform.  Emotional-Driven donation streams have become a paramount fund-raising resource for many of the more questionable charitable non-profit organizations, as well as with government organizations that need streams of misinformation in order to enhance their budgets . . .

Ultimately, what myself and others are finding today through research, is the fact “Corruption” has changed faces, and is now actually manipulating their markets.  Using the “Information Age” for nothing more than upholding a mass amount of “Misinformation-Driven” rhetoric to the media streams, and

  1. Actually having the taxpayer’s or donators to non-profits, unknowingly taking part in the “Corrupt” flow of misinformation, with the assumption the Perpetuated Problems can be resolved – but only if “. . . we increase our budgets for better management paradigms. . .” (actually paradigms not meant to resolve, but rather enhance more and much larger budgets in the future, and corrupt in total); or,
  2. You donate to a non-profit, and they will take these corrupt people in government to task (again their attempts at resolving issues do not directly confront the issues, but simply confront subordinate issues which perpetuate further more emotional driven issues, all the while asking for more donations) and by golly save the wild horses – which in truth never happens because they never approach the reality issues, but the corrupt issues instead even though they are just as corrupt – and the money-trains become larger and larger still. . .

So, the corrupt just become more corrupt, and all those taking part in the corruption, are and remain just as corrupt.  The overlooked fact of truth here, is that to end corruption, first we must stop listening to their greed and lies, and then take-to-task the corruption directly – and not become a part of it, whether knowingly or unknowingly.

Wildlife Moderation of Population is a Natural Process : Human’s Need Not Get Involved At All

 

Moderation within a Natural wilderness setting is not only doable, but backed by a tremendous amount of Science, Researchers, those experienced in the Ranges and Public Lands, as well as Biologists alike. Diversity and natural progression moderates the population of ALL WILDLIFE — this is why we have qualified, and experienced people stepping up and saying something, enough of the amateurs attempting to sound like they know something, and the situation for the wild horses getting worse, then worse again . . .

The things ongoing right now, in government and with non-profits alike, is pure bullshit, and I see only a few people that “may” have a plan of action that is any good at all — and that is my experience as well as many others experience on the ranges and in the mountains, we all state very clearly!

AMERICA’S WILD HORSES HAVE A “RIGHT” TO BE WHERE THEY ARE LOCATED ON PUBLIC LANDS — BY LAW — Whereas, industry and ranching is merely a Revocable Privilege, and taxpayer’s, that is the more that become aware of the reality and abuse, from corrupt government agencies, as well as corrupt ranchers and industry and how they use our Public Lands, is becoming Unacceptable to many American’s, and we are all tired of the lies and misinformation, and disrespect of these government agencies directed toward the American taxpayer’s — directly, and the kill-off of America’s Wildlife uselessly and out of bias and hatred. . .

AMERICAN’S WANT THE WILD HORSES THERE AND LEFT ALONE — NO FERTILITY CONTROLS EITHER — THE INDUSTRIES AND RANCHING, NOT SO MUCH, THEY COULD LEAVE AND NO ONE WOULD CARE, AND WE WOULD THEN SEE, IT IS ONLY PROFIT-BASED USE OF OUR PUBLIC LANDS, UNNECESSARY IN THE ENTIRE SCHEME OF LIFE ON THIS PLANT, AND IS MERELY DESTRUCTIVE, NOT PROGRESS — BUT DESTRUCTION IN TOTAL.

America’s Public Lands: will bigotry, bias, and corrupt government agencies destroy Our Public Lands?


The fact is this, Federal Courts, since day one have always backed the Rights of the Taxpayer’s of this land, and reinforce the situation (i.e. Federal Courts quite clear on the separation of private rights compared to the privilege of Grazing Permit Lands and the kited entitlement to them) of Grazing Permit Ranching on Public Lands, remains and always will be merely a “Privilege” given to ranchers by American’s (i.e. essentially taxpayer’s), and through their representative government politicians and agencies, but keep in mind, a “Revocable Privilege” when abused.

I suppose demeaning other American’s for a simplistic and arrogant reasoning, or intimidation because grazing permit ranchers do have to answer to American’s and the Taxpayer’s of this nation, to rightfully continue their privilege-only status, then the debate begins. Many see this as simply petty Bigotry, brought about by narrow thinking, greed, and low IQ’s, and not really understanding the Laws that protect American’s from Corrupt and Ignorant behaviors, entirely.

Whether one is a Right-Wing Conservative or a Liberal is inconsequential, as Our country is based upon Diversity; which, was fought for over the centuries, and the highest price of all, one’s life sacrificed, for America and this diversity.  This bigotry today, that seems to be acceptable to some, disrespects’ those that fought for this country, or served well and with respect.  Bigotry, remains unacceptable and will simply destroy this country which belongs to all of us – and this is something that bigotry nor bias can hide from others who have minds and think. 

Federal Court Law

The Federal Courts over the history of America, has decided, and very clear about our Public Lands being America’s Lands, and not to be used privately.  So those Right-Wing Extremists must accept the fact, in particular about Public lands, that they have no evidence to support their opinions of ownership, nor of total control of Our – American’s – Public Lands.  The assumption anyone who does not agree with them are Un-American, is and remains preposterous, and nothing supports that either, other than their own bigotry, their own bias, and total ignorance of the subject. Whether one sees a grazing right as a form of “property” depends ultimately on the view of property one has. Falen and Budd-Falen (1993, p. 505) cite a 19th Century Supreme Court decision in defining the contested term as embracing “all valuable interests which man may possess outside of. . . his life and liberty.”

Quoting from the dissent in that case, Falen and Budd-Falen do not entirely convey what the minority opinion in Campbell v. Holt (115 U.S. 620 (1885) was trying to say.. ‘The term ‘property’,” said the dissent, “. . .is not confined to mere tangible property, but extends to every species of vested right” (Campbell, p.630). But if property as relevant to the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments covers all “vested rights,” it does not cover grazing preferences or permits, both of which the courts have regularly declared not to be a kind of “vested right.” The case law does, however, support a “thing of value” view of property for grazing permits as outlined by the Red Canyon court and the IRS in Shufflebarner and other rulings. Such a view acknowledges the clear financial advantages of a grazer’s preference right against other ranchers, while stopping short of declaring that preference a vested right of private property, protected from uncompensated government action. . .

A difficult but essential first step is to broaden the views of the parties involved. Jurists, administrators, and their supporters need to realize that court decisions and legal precedents sometimes carry much less strength than they might imagine. The persuasion process merely starts with a legal decision rather than ending with it. As many organizational theorists have noted, the authority of a rule lies in its acceptance by the subordinate rather than the rule-maker (Barnard, 1938). Similarly, ranchers and private rights advocates need to acknowledge the relative weakness of their legal case and move on, rather than continuing to press for victory in a battle that has already been mostly fought and lost.

Their case is better made in the political and cultural realm, within the confines of current legal realities. At the risk of sounding naive, both sides need to see the world from another point of view. They need to use their “imaginations,” as Rose (1994, p. 297) urges, and realize that “what you see in property is what you and others have talked yourself into about those ‘things’.”

What will happen if either side is able to see things from another point of view is beyond prediction, but that it would be an improvement on the current situation seems clear. To truly understand another view requires a basic level of respect that brings with it a world of potential for resolution. As Rose (1994, p. 297) concludes, “given some imagination, you may always talk yourselves into seeing something else-with all the effects on understanding and action that a new ‘envisioning’ may bring.”

Today we have many misguided situations or interpretations of Law within the realm of government lands use. Whether it is from those unassociated with these laws (they should perhaps learn the Law and at least appear somewhat intelligent rather than totally ignorant), or those who assume their interpretation of some Laws while leaving out the essential aspects of the Law itself, is merely self-serving and ignores the actual legality of the issue. Yes, understanding what one is reading, and acknowledge the connections to all of the legal jargon, is then paramount in understanding the Laws.

Today, as well, we have a problem with government agencies misinterpretation of the Federal Laws, and assume “Corrupting” these Laws are or remain okay, in order to reach their Special Interests, or their political favor. If this truly the case, then why have any types of Laws at all? To be an American is to acknowledge we are a Land of Laws.

This is how America operates, and if we ignore this, then we become nothing more than a backward country, and extinction, or s the Roman Empire Fell due to corruption, may not be that far off – which history shows clearly; that, corruption within all of its vast ignorance, and when accepted simply turns into a National Cancer, then as history again shows, the Country Fails – destroyed from within . . .

The Wild Horse Overpopulation Lie of lies – costing taxpayer’s $-millions a year

Let’s Discuss Science and Wild Horses being Indigenous on Our Public Lands, and WHY . . .

Our nation’s Public Lands is and always has been, Owned by American’s!  It is what places the United States together, both physically and Ideologically.  We pay government agencies to do things right, BIT CURRENTLY AND THE PAST FEW DECADES, THEY HAVE CHOSEN TO LIE, TO COMMIT FRAUD ON A CONSTANT BASIS, AND TO MISINFORM THE TAXPAYER PUBLIC IN THE MATTERS OF WILD HORSES, THE OVER-POPULATION OF WILD HORSES THAT SIMPLY DOES NOT EXIST, AND THE RIGHT’S AMERICAN’S DO HAVE WHEN MAKING DECISIONS ABOUT OUR PUBLIC LANDS.

The Bureau of Lands Management simply covers-up the truth entirely for a select few to use Our Public Lands, and to outright abuse it.  Time to Investigate the Bureau of Land Management, the Department of the Interior, as well as the USDA Forestry and the USDA Wildlife Services.  The worst of the worst in GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION TODAY!

The Sun is Setting on the Wild Horses

 
 

A short discusion on Ecologic Habitats and Process and Our Declining Food Chain Supplements on Our Public Lands due to Mismanagement and Corruption in Total

We are destroying the very fundamental situations that assisted in Our Country’s Growth. Our Food Chain Supplements are becoming less and less, due to corruption, to mismanaged Public Lands, and to bad science or no science at all used. The best example being the mismanaged situations and industry that exists upon Our Very Public Lands.  This situation intertwined with not only sever Corruption (Constitutional Violations also exist within this corrupt empire that manages it, the Bureau of Land Management as well as the USDA Forestry) but just plain old bad-management ideologies and paradigms, with no interest directly involved with Science what so ever, and Common-Sense is totally out the window. . .

Our Food Chain Supplements are in need of better management, better science, and less cattle and oil or mining on Our Public Lands, as we are in trouble right now — this is not a future problem, it is a Right-Now problem.  It is an understatement that bigotry, bias, and a crude ignorance exists within management of these government agencies, and many personnel must be replaced, and this includes government contractors as well. 

America, we have a significant problem here, and it is within Our Government of today, and representatives, over-site situations and organizations, and others are simply ignoring it in total..

When we peruse the evidence of all that I and others state here, for example:

  1. The stomping to death of a small burro on the rangelands by a government contractor’s son, Cattoors helicopters, or,
  2. The beating and stomping upon a burro by a government employee and the other employees standing by and laughing. . . ;
  3. We have a problem with these types of employees and contractors alike, and piles upon piles of photo’s and videos, and eye-witness account — and the Justice Department ill not take them;
  4. there is no doubt, as witnesses looked on and in disbelief — many of the situations on video as well.  or,
  5. the outright and blatant corruption of selling wild horses to slaughter-transports (theft), or the occasion of shooting horses, and the animosity and outright psychosis that exists within that realm of mental dysfunction.  And so much more. . . I could go on and on about the several types of corruption, that Taxpayer’s and the American Public simply do not want to support with Our taxpayer money, and many, when this situation known, demand correction, and punishment to these people doing all of this; or,
  6. The ongoing and fraudulent lies of Over-population of Wild horses, the over-population simply doe not exist and fraud committed in accord with Federal Law, and the Justice Department ignore in total — the process of keeping these government agencies in check, to avoid corruption, is not working and ignored every day;
  7. the Justice Department told about these instances, or one example of many more, $3.4 million in theft from illegal Bait and Trap Procurement and payment to government contractors at Murderer’s Creek, Oregon, they simply ignored;
  8. They ignored the abuse situations, as they state they are investigating, but that is a lie as well and feeds the corruption entirely;
  9. They ignore the sales of wild horses stolen from Public Lands by BLM and Forestry personnel; and,
  10. They act as though a Taxpayer has no rights, and should not be saying anything, and yet we pay their salaries;
  11. The current Justice Department defends all of the ongoing Corruption and Mental-Dysfunctional situations of these government agency employees and government contractors, today as as this is being written . . .
