Wild Horses and Sustainability

Sustainability: The ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level; or,

Avoidance of the depletion of natural resources

in order to maintain an ecological balance.

Let’s, together right now, separate the confusion between ideologies, directly related toward sustainability of Americas Wild Horses! Due to these differences and among so much confusion on what exactly sustainability is, and what it is not – Oh yes, need we not forget and among all of the confusion these days, government employee ignorance compounded with their lies and outright corrupt behaviors – from Bureau of Land Management mostly, with Oversight from the Department of the Interior, overwhelms America’s Wild Horses on America’s Public Lands and Forestry Lands.

The reality of their ignorance? Wild Horses Die! But not just die, but die throughout a morbid, abusive death at slaughter plants. The horse’s throats ripped out, or cut open by a knife, or beat in the head with a hammer until unconscious, then gutted when still alive. . .

And yet, this information is not unknown to those government employees who support, or take part in stealing wild horses for slaughter, mostly by creating horse counts that are biologically impossible for mother nature to create naturally (bogus statistics and dishonest research shadow all of their efforts throughout their corruption). It does not matter how they smile when talking to the general public. The reality? They know nothing of horses in general, and know even less about Wild Horses – America’s Wild Horses.

To write this one has to enter into a gloomy realm of darkness, which is the domain of falsified wild horse herd counts. We see firstly, the wild horse counts done by Bureau of Land Management employees to be, very often and as stated above, biological impossibilities. Exaggeration of a type where, in reality, abusive behavior and harm does come to the wild horses – through what we can term sociopathic behaviors. Yes, they know what happens to the horses when sent to slaughter, make no doubt they know, and simply do not give a damn what so ever.

Also forgotten is the legal aspects of what they do, daily – corruption of falsification laws, corruption of laws that protect the public from government lies and fraud, and basically do not manage the wild horses at a level of knowledgeable professionalism at all. Corruption is exactly the name of their behavior – disgustingly, for nothing more than pocket change and special interests.

The horses lose, and sustainable wild horse herds are obviously planned toward “Extinction” and within the coming decade, contrary to Law. And by the way, for no reason other than short-term monetary profits for all involved – most often from taxpayer money and corrupt subsidy programs or grants provided by our government.

Sustainability Organization and Perspective

Let’s just agree from the outset, there are so many different oriented perspectives within the matters of sustainability, one can become confused as to just why there exist so many. We have one Earth, with our unique environment that separates our planet from so many others within our solar system.

Many of us also understand the simple facts of an All-Is-Connected mind set, and with this we can understand further, that simplicity can lead to such intricate detail, abound with such a complexity in process, that it becomes far easier to give up, rather than dwell within our landscape upon this planet for any amount of time; thereby, many people simply follow large special interest groups, rather than deduct for themselves the environmental circumstances that do exist.

The problem here? Special interest groups (along with government agencies as well) that say they do the research — but in reality, do not. This situation equates to the worst type of ignorance. Most people will just agree with the information that sounds the best, comparable to comfort-food is comfort (false) facts, which in truth is nothing more than to participate within the ignorance, and have no idea about the realities, and often wonder why nothing has changed over the past decade.

Understanding Sustainability and Nature

Aldo Leopold understood this hierarchical organization of our overall environment, along with all of its complexity. He understood not just the natural systems existing throughout his time but the impact of humans on them, and severe potential destruction in the future inevitable.

We can peruse his more significant writing of “Think Like a Mountain”, and realize that managing a species population on the mountain (i.e. ecological zones) requires a systematic approach, rather than guesswork, or narrow perceptions that include special interests, or even economic interests. Many of us agree, Leopold did not go far enough, and it is now up to us to go further.

Only then we can also understand the complex nature of the subsystems he spoke of – i.e. deer, wolves, and hunters etc., and when manipulated for human purposes, (in this example by removing the wolves entirely – which we can define parallels with our nations Wild Horses, due to the blatant ignorance of hatred toward both species, that some human’s do maintain, falsely, as their perception of true sustainability or their brand of (fake) conservationism) would alter those corresponding ecological systems drastically, if not destroy them entirely.

Ignorant human involvement within nature, can devastate our planet, make no doubt as those of us in the field see it daily now – even more so than nuclear bombs, and far more dangerous than our perception of nuclear war, which would probably never happen – Perception compounded with commercialized manipulation is quite extraordinary at times, is it not? Ignorance can be far worse than any war, and profoundly justice never accomplished to fix the corruption.

This develops into an awkward situation, that when set in motion cause significant changes to our overall environment. And human’s, well, we simply want to ignore what has developed, despite the destruction, and move on to our self-indulgence or special interests – in this case hunting for deer, or Elk, or the commercial and industrialized cattle production of beef (even though we see a 34% to 36% amount of beef products thrown-away (i.e. USDA Statistics 2000 to 2016) wasted or thrown out for non-sales at markets yearly, and the hell with any other wildlife. . . A corrupt industry in total, similar to many others that use our natural resources or ecological systems, to produce their saleable products, in such mass commodities. . .

Within this discussion a profound economic sustainability ideology does exist; but, up to this point in history, time has shown this particular wayward ideology very destructive, indeed.

We can go to other circumstances, especially within the cattle industry, which provides us with   reasoning as to why so much ignorant-styled hatred toward wolves and wild horses does exist. A good example is how our government, to be precise the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), portrays our nation’s Public Lands mass and acreage, as all of it being pristine, or useable.

This is an untruth. There exist small areas, or ecological systems that are useable, but mostly shared by many species. It is this sharing of these lands, by a diversity of species (Yellowstone for example and proven by much of the research over the past four-decades, that shows this very well indeed; or, the Great Plains, that shows us diversity up to three-decades ago, then the devastation and destruction, by cattle mostly) that provided the enhancement of the overall ecological system to work beneficially.

Research also shows that the amounts of Public Lands is exaggerated (covered in my previous writings). This becomes devastating when we see cattle ranchers fight over Public Lands and Forestry Lands, to place their cattle upon (cattle destroys ecological systems and overall environmental habitats, robustly proven over decades of research), and since government agencies acreage-counts exaggerated (also proven by sound research, with so many conflicting statistics between USDA/Forestry as well as BLM or USGS for that matter, among others), then the fight for useable Public Lands / Forestry Lands, and land mass itself, becomes of paramount significance to us all, especially within a sustainability context.

These useable ecologically healthy land-masses, that also include diversity in wildlife and vegetation, are called “Islands”, for research purposes. This distinguishes unusable land-mass from useable, or over-used land-mass in a real-time data gathering sequence of attributes and study. Using this methodology, we can now distinguish the false representation of land-mass, with a truer perspective of how we treat and use our functional land-mass – and I must say it is not a pretty picture what so ever. – John Cox, Cascade Journal

Now we can begin to see how Leopold, in “Marshland Elegy” and the way he used, or constructed his multiscale critique of his Wolf Policy, in “Thinking Like A Mountain,” is so important, but still did not go far enough to protect sound Ecological Zones from economic reasoning, or disastrous mind-sets, from several very destructive commercialized situations (cattle, oil, mining, pipelines, exploratory drilling for gas, et al.).

One can also make a good point in the fact of negative sustainability, especially within the economic standard of false ideology of the term sustainability and within the aforementioned industries. Frankly, one can replace their economic ideology, or perceptions, of sustainability with more unstable principles of conduct, or negative virtues of reality – which dictate using the lands aggressively to sustain the current population, until unuseful, then leave it for the future generations to deal with the overall burden, and on their time, not ours.

None the less, we deal with ignorance. Why do I say this? Because we can reflect back into a past that remains abundant with information. This information shows us, beyond any doubt at all, whether it be hierarchical models, or simply multiscale models, that prove humans pay attention to only short-term profits (i.e. short-term land use, or aggressive ecological devastation and then move onward to another healthy ecological-zone (Island) to devastate short-term) . . .

Thereby, the problem in real time, becomes that of these same driving variables of destruction, and in a system of economic gain, can and does undermine these ecological systems, and sadly, within an ignorant context, wildlife species driven toward extinction; which, overall contributes to the system’s ability to not continue to provide those outputs, and actually undermine those dynamics that function at a much larger scale.

Sustainability and Positive Approach

Here is where we can take Aldo Leopold’s reasoning to a protohierarchy theory. This is where it gets interesting, as one does not want to aspire toward a juggling-act. We find that politics eventually takes over any type of superficial context based upon falsehoods or self-oriented special interests. We see a lot of this within horse advocacy groups (and government agencies alike, as currently neither is that far apart in the matters of bogus information and spreading it to the public at large), where analysis based upon false-hoods, or corruption taken as a truth, becomes simply yet another superficial layer that can essentially be tossed upon the already immense garbage-pile of other ignorance portrayed as reality.

So we can dig-up truth, despite so much garbage, through quality process dynamics, for example:

  • Systems embedded within one another, given the smaller sub-systems are expected to change quicker than the larger systems that they are composed, to maintain the space-time relationship complex all the while sustaining the dynamics of the entirety, or the whole system as being dynamic, enhancing both the ecological system as well as the diversity of species that contribute; 

 

  • All observation as well as research, be confined with information from these sub-systems only, assumptive toward the aggressive dynamic that enhance, rather than hinder, the complex of the relationships favoring sustainability and longevity of the overall dynamic in its entirety. No appeals are made toward any other perspective of ideological enhancement of what sustainability is or is not; whereas, special interests remain uninvolved and prohibited.

 

Within the two points made here, from experience many of us can perceive an infinite amount of systems that can be used, where sound and quality research is provided, then becomes a priority toward management, despite what level the system or ecological zone for that matter. Here we can provide the human elements with natural elements judiciously and without special interests or government intrusive and wayward corruption having the ability to take over and destroy further, these lands (or Islands) upon which the taxpayers and public, i.e. American’s Own. We can also expect more from the laws that already exist, yet ignored by those government entities that are, indeed, paid to uphold those same laws they ignore.

The situation here is to have the ability to develop models that arrange many dynamics, that can come together, that actually drive this system into positive areas of understanding; whereas, this allows those involved to parse problems onto the systems, and systems onto problematic areas, or zones, in helpful ways – when compared to the current, and destructive, economic ideologies of fake or false sustainability perceptions – and those that attempt to work within those false perceptions, which equate to no change or no positive situations to develop toward land-mass or ecological-zone improvements. . .

Horse Advocates — Time for a turn-over of Non-Profits who say they are Wild Horse Advocates

Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation. Anonymous

Today, many a horse advocate sit, wondering what had happened, that the Virginia Range Horses have all but disappeared — illegally I might add, and no legal EA’s to show, or all the legal process that goes with an EA within its legitimate process.

Allow us to outline very corrupt government agencies’, the BLM, forestry, and the DOI;  AND OH YES, the corrupt non-profits that are driving their new trucks, living in their new homes, the HSUS spending their donated product not on animal’s but themselves, the leadership at the Cloud Foundation lies outwardly and proven time and again and yet, the leader of Wild Horse Education with four or five names – the most recent Laura Leigh, AWHPC or whatever the hell they call themselves these days, and of course any of Netherlands groups, and Return to Freedom — all corrupt as well.  We Invite them for a Court Appearance, as these organizations are indeed corrupt — ALL OF THEM UP TO THIS POINT.

“The sad situation is the Virginia Range Horses have no chance in hell to survive; in particular, when the regulatory Laws are not followed.  The overall weight of this situation is not the ongoing travesty of the wild horses, over there, but the overall corruption, within donated money that should have assisted the Virginia Range Horses within a Federal Court; as well, our tax-paid money that supplies the payroll to these Federal Agencies to MANAGE WILD HORSES BY THE LAWS ALREADY IN PLACE.  At some stage, within all these existing non-profits, or the government agency personnel who take part in corruption, many must be discontinued or replaced.  Their greed, avarice, and overall honesty has simply disappeared.” — John Cox, A Real Horseman and Horse Advocate

But who keeps these corrupt organizations afloat?  Well, up to this point an insurmountable number of ass-hats and dumb-asses, or what we in our line of vocation here, as Horse Advocates, there exist a bunch of followers who seem to question nothing!  Hell, ask where the money goes, it is legal to do so, and paramount to an honest and functional non-profit, for example.  If they say no, or are hiding something, or give you a page of confusion, then certainly be suspect.

The highlight here is the blacklisting of individuals that are, indeed, honest.  And who leads these black-lists?  Well, Hate Groups!  Who sponsors these hate groups?  Well, the above mentioned.  It reeks of . . . no wait!  IT SCREAMS OF DISHONESTY!  CORRUPTION!  MISINFORMATION! AND WORSE — COMPLACENCY WITH NO ACTION — PASSING THE BUCK!

MAKING OUR VOICES HEARD

Many people have been asking us, what can they do to fix this situation?  It is time for a turn-over, in both the government agencies and of the current Horse Advocacies!  Both are just as criminal as the other!  Gone is any element of honesty in both.  Make no doubt, it is the common folks that want to save the wild horses, but those who make profit from donations, and have the perspective it is their money to do with what they want to do with it — THAT’S CORRUPTION FOLKS!  IT IS THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND!  HOW SAD FOR THE WILD HORSES!

HORSE ADVOCATES, TOGETHER, can make a difference — but not the advocates that exist today, the many non-profits that are simply dishonest, black-list those that are honest, mount attacks on honest rescues, and are pretty much making large profits off of donations meant to assist the Wild Horses!

It is the Horse Advocates, needing to pool their strength that they know not they have, and to take that strength, or power, to remove the dishonest, the greedy, and afterward start making a difference.

The problem with this editorial?  It is troublesome, but yet a truth beyond all others.  If you want to save Wild Horses, Let’s DO IT!  Stop donating money to those who do not!  If you cannot comprehend what it is I am saying here, and you do not know, or simply donate to non-profits blindly, then shut the f-ck up, and please above all else, do not say you are a Horse Advocate, because that is bullshit!

Extinction is Human Caused — It is not a Natural-Occurrence of our times as ignorance dictates

Species extinction facts

122,090 Number of species gone extinct So far this year 1

This is not a natural occurrence, as the broken systems of game management, oil production, agriculture, and cattle industry would like all of the American taxpayers to believe. No

“Here are some quick “species extinction… facts”… and it’s not encouraging reading. Species are becoming extinct faster now than at any point in modern history.

Top 5 facts about species gone extinct

Species are disappearing

We don’t know exactly how many species go extinct every year but it could be 100,000 – about 1 every 5 minutes.

…And fast !

The current rate of extinction is up to 10,000 times higher than the average historical extinction rates. We, the humans, are almost wholly responsible for this increase.

It’s getting worse

The worsening and loss of biodiversity are projected to continue, and even accelerate. Direct human activity and climate change is the cause of this – for example through the destruction of forests and coral reefs.

Possible mass extinction

There is a wide belief that a “mass extinction” is underway. Some predict that half of all living species could be gone within 100 years.

Who are they?

Within the next 15 to 40 years it is likely that the following animals will become extinct: polar bear, chimpanzee, elephant, snow leopard, tiger, mountain gorilla, orangutan, giant panda, rhino, and the koala bear. Unfortunately, these are just a few of many…”

What is Extinction

  1. An endangered species is one whose numbers are so small that it is at risk of extinction.
  2. A species is defined as endangered or threatened when it is suffers from these factors: damage to its habitat for recreational, or entertainment purposes; disease or predation of the species; and hazards to the continued life of the species.
  3. A species is declared extinct after many years of not being spotted. Because it takes so long to define an entire species as extinct, it is probable that there are many species already gone that we are unaware of.
  4. Rangers are on the frontlines of conservation to protect some of the world’s most endangered species like tigers, elephants and rhinos. Send thank-you cards to those who protect endangered species. Sign up for Wildlife Cards!
  5. Extinction is a natural phenomenon, it occurs at a natural “background” rate of about one to five species per year. Scientists estimate we’re now losing species at 1,000 to 10,000 times the “background” rate, with dozens going extinct every day.
  6. As many as 30 to 50 percent of all species are possibly heading toward extinction by mid-century.
  7. 99% of currently threatened species are at risk from human activities, primarily those driving habitat loss, introduction of exotic species, and global warming
  8. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA) protects registered endangered species by removing them from the “take” list, which makes it unlawful for a person to shoot, harm, capture, trap, or attempt any such actions to the species.
  9. Ultimately, the ESA strives to recover species from the endangered list by restoring their ecological health until they no longer need protection.
  10. The World Wildlife Organization focuses on saving certain species that help sustain other species. They protect wildlife such as pandas, whales, rhinos, marine turtles, primates, polar bears, and big cats.
  11. Freshwater ecosystems are home to more than 100,000 known species of plants and animals, and are now one of the most endangered habitats in the world as a result of human development, pollution, and climate change.

Understanding Extinction

Just to illustrate the degree of biodiversity loss we’re facing, let’s take you through one scientific analysis… The rapid loss of species we are seeing today is estimated by experts to be between 1,000 and 10,000 times higher than the natural extinction rate.*

These experts calculate that between 0.01 and 0.1% of all species will become extinct each year.

If the low estimate of the number of species out there is true – i.e. that there are around 2 million different species on our planet** – then that means between 200 and 2,000 extinctions occur every year.

But if the upper estimate of species numbers is true – that there are 100 million different species co-existing with us on our planet – then between 10,000 and 100,000 species are becoming extinct each year.

Unlike the mass extinction events of geological history, the current extinction challenge is one for which a single species – ours – appears to be almost wholly responsible.

This is often referred to as the 6th extinction crisis, after the 5 known extinction waves in geological history. So without arguing about who’s right or wrong; Or, what the exact numbers are. There can be little debate that there is, in fact, a very serious biodiversity crisis.

Conclusion

We are at a point in history where the Human-Species should start to question, and demand good science, good research based on non-negotiable and well refenced facts (no personal agendas, political agendas, nor special interests need apply here, as it is uncooperative corporations as well as government agencies that remain causing these problems). . .

Rather than follow corrupt empires of special interests, and profound agendas with no Environmental Assessments, or disregard the laws put into place to protect our environmental landscapes and wildlife ecology, strengthen the laws in place, and regulate and manage our interests with diversity and “all is connected on this earth of ours” mind-sets.

We must get along! How simple of a resolution is this? We must stop assuming corrupt corporations and government agencies are worthy of respect, when they indeed are not what so ever! Corruption is corrupt, and those that follow the corruption are just as bad as the corrupt.

Our environmental as well as our wildlife management systems are broken – entirely!

Wild Horses and the Corrupt World of Horses

“We have a saying, that Power Corrupts.  In my objectivity and observations, I say yes, there is no doubt it corrupts.  Power corrupts not only those who wields the power, but those who submit to it as well.  Those who grovel at the feet of power, betray their fellows to hide themselves behind the cloak of submission.  It, indeed, is an evil thing . . . ”  John Cox, The Cascades

I find the fact that we assume technology has, indeed, assisted our society.  It supposedly has placed our conduct into a more superior, or academic and intellectual mind-set.  But no, it has not at all.  Technology a mere excuse, a façade of the problem no one speaks about?  The conditions of the human mind-set, or lack of . . .

Veterans Of Wars

Allow me to use here, as an example, the most powerful and ignorant of all — War and the Human Species.  As a Vietnam Veteran myself, I watched in horror, as many others had done also.  It was a dismal fate of a high percentage of Vietnam Veteran’s who committed suicide upon arriving home, as well as decades afterward.  The excuse, or one of oh so many, was the fact of the Vietnam Veteran not appreciated, and disliked when coming home. . . Which, under this assumption, our human species simply took out their anger, their hatred toward that war, on the Vietnam Veteran.

Today we have many who have come back from Iraq, Afghanistan, and other countries, and are welcomed home.  Today, everybody love’s their Veteran’s.  At least the façade, or pretense of the day says this — but indeed, pretty much an untruth.  Why do I say this, and use it here as an example?  These Veteran’s of current War’s have a suicide rate often 5 points higher than Vietnam Veteran’s ever had.  Ignorance?  Technology?  Human Conditioning?  Apathy?  Complacency?  Not having to take responsibility?

America’s Wild Horses on Public Lands

What of the Wild Horses?  What mind-set promotes the lies, the hatred, and yes, even the very essence of lack of responsibility by our government agencies to properly manage Americas’ Wild Horses by the Laws put into place to do so — and not to do harm to those innocent wildlife we live on this planet with — as in truth, all is connected — yet ignored, or worse, the presumption, by those Laws simply do not exist, according to those people who call themselves government employees; which, who we call nothing more than groveler’s — or the worst of the worst corrupt of them all, those who submit to corruption.

“. . .  IT INDEED IS AN EVIL THING.”

The current EA, FLPMA, or NEPA legal process has not been met for Utah Roundup

I find it interesting that the Bureau of Land Management, also allowed by the Department of the Interior (oversight agency), to complete such obvious Illegal Activities — as no legal process has been given to the taxpayer public that the Conger and Frisco Roundups are being done legally.

I.  Current EA legal process must be met and signed — a 2015 EA, whether updated or not, and left unsigned as well, is unacceptable legally to complete a legal roundup;

2. An unsigned EA does not fulfill the legal process for the BLM to conduct a roundup at the Conger and Frisco Heard Management areas;

3. FLPMA as well as no NEPA requirements, legally, have simply not been met for a legal roundup within these Utah HMA areas;

4. Population Research Control (BLM’s bogus title in an attempt to make it sound valid) is a false title and irrelevant, when the other elements of qualifications for rounding America’s Wild Horses up  have, very simply, not been met;

5. Worse yet, the bogus biology at these particular HMA’s are essentially biological-impossibilities (very dishonest) within these groups of Wild Horses, and the previous 2015 EA shows the impossibilities very well — updates based upon the 2015 EA (with no other qualification processes and left unavailable), and as Federal Courts have ruled previously, and clearly, BLM is to provide current EA’s (I.e. FLPMA, NEPA documents as well and current), not random EA’s copied elsewhere and simply the date changed . . .

The situation here shows us quite well, to taxpayers, how BLM pursues illegal and well planned fraudulent-activities on a regular basis, is their incompetent abilities toward biological truth, as well as Environmental truth, has not been met what so ever — this simply demonstrate the lies these particular BLM Wild Horse Counts provide, and costing taxpayers millions of dollars to accomplish, yet do nothing for the Ecology of those environments, other than destruction from more cattle being placed upon America’s Public Lands (as science shows us clearly and on a regular basis, e.g. Grasslands Extinction, et al.) . . .

What should also be noted is the 34% cattle Yearly throw-away situations from stores who market this same beef product, and from the Welfare Rancher paradigm, or ranches heavily subsidized by taxpayer money.  These types of Welfare Ranching Operations supply a mere or Less Than 1% of beef product to the American Markets (receipts from DOI and government oversight agencies shows us this quite prevalently) . . . and yet cost the American Taxpayer’s millions of dollars, or to put it simply, we as taxpayer’s cover their underline costs of production and management; whereas, Welfare Ranchers (those entities that lease and sub-lease (which is also illegal by the way) Public Lands and Forestry Lands) give nothing back in taxes, nothing back to any social system or endeavors, and absolutely nothing back in support of our nation’s wildlife —

We lose, as American’s and taxpayers, as true functional ecological systems become less and less. America’s needed predators and other wildlife required for healthy ecological systems, are killed-off (Welfare Rancher’s seem to have a profound ignorance, combined with unhealthy aspects of greed and profiteering), and many near extinction.

Wild Horses, for example and something to think about, provide distribution of seeds, which assist in promoting a healthy grasslands environment — cattle and sheep destroy this same grasslands environments, which BTW support 2/3 of our basic food chain basic substances. Not so surprising, our Grasslands, the very basis of our existence and society as we know it, headed to extinction at a mere 24% of over-all Grasslands left.

Honor

All men are born of honor.

It cannot be taken, nor, can it be given.

From birth, we have a path,

Acknowledged or not.

Destiny is this path,

As history is pre-written, always.

All life leads to these moments,

And it is this honor, not complacency,

That will take back Our Country.

A Word or Two from Someone Who Holds Our Heritage, Wild Horses on Our Public and Federal Lands, with Respect!

“I was always told when younger, the mark of a person becoming Human, of a man or woman, is to respect and defend those who cannot defend themselves from those treacherous people who really do not know the difference between cruelty and respect.  Wildlife, in this case wild horses, gives us this opportunity, with Mother Earth, to show our respect toward them and Our Grand Creator.  The Wild Horse is our opportunity right now, to show this respect toward all, and become better humans.”  John Cox, Cascade Journal

By DAMN, when I hear organizations, government agencies who we support with our taxpayer money – private companies that we purchase their products – ranchers that are subsidized mostly by our tax dollars (Welfare Ranchers) – non-profits that accept donations to assist our American Heritage the Wild Horses and do not do so – and others who agree with these assholes in destruction of our very American Heritage AMERICA’S WILD HORSES — and these people wave the American Flag, is oh so hypocritical, DISGUSTING, AS WELL AS UNACCEPTABLE TO MOST AMERICAN’S!

What you do not do to our American Heritage, Our Wild Horses on Our Public Lands, you DO NOT:

  1. Roundup and send to Slaughter our Wild Horses to feed to Zoo Animals;
  2. Roundup and send to Slaughter our Wild Horses in Mexico or Canada to ship to Europe for them to eat;
  3. Send to Japan or China for a quick profit;
  4. Replace and roundup America’s Wild Horses to make room for an already overabundant amount of cattle on Our Public Lands (and which destroys our Grasslands which provides 2/3rds of America’s Food chain substance and support, as well as already have a 34%yearly throw-away rate due to overabundance of cattle production on private and public lands);
  5. Slaughter Our Wild Horses to ship to foreign soil (it’s our damn heritage your selling, and the same as stomping on our American Flag, is the way many of us look at it in our Perspective;
  6. Our Wild Horses are not there to send to slaughter, as the Bureau of Land Management and the Department of Interior, or our Forestry does weekly, for mere pocket change to buy a beer after work — Wild Horses are American’s Property . . .

We need to get a grip on Our Government and profiteers that stomp on our flag, all the while destroying Our Heritage, as more than enough American’s respect our traditions, our ways, and Our Heritage — not our government or a corporate decision to do with what they want to do with them — THESE ARE AMERICAN HORSES, BELONGING TO AMERICA, and NOT to THEM to do with as they please!

So the next time you see someone waving the American Flag, and they are a part of the slaughter industry, and using America’s Wild Horses to profiteer, tell them you will no longer support them or their products what so ever!  Refuse to donate to non-profits that are part of the misinformation-chains that create deceptions or outright lies about an overabundance of horses on Our Public Lands.

It  is time for the reality, of true American’s to take a stand — We are saving ourselves as American’s, and against the corrupt politics and corporate powers that want to use our Heritage to make money only, and as in their words, “. . . to hell with American’s and America, let’s make profit!

Just sayin, as We Still Have Freedom of Speech!  In reality, we need to embrace our wisdom, not our ignorance.
