Cattle Guards (FYI-This is a joke)

For those of  you
who have never traveled to the west, or  southwest, cattle guards are
horizontal steel  rails placed at fence openings, in dug-out  places
in the roads adjacent to highways  (sometimes across highways), to prevent
cattle  from crossing over that area.  For some  reason the
cattle will not step on the “guards,”  probably because they
fear getting their feet  caught between the rails.
A few  months
ago, President Obama received and was  reading a report that there were
over 100,000  cattle guards in Colorado .  The Colorado 
ranchers had protested his proposed changes in  grazing policies, so he
ordered the Secretary of  the Interior to fire half of the “cattle”
guards  immediately!

the Secretary of  the Interior could respond and presumably try to 
straighten President Obama out on the matter,  Vice-President Joe Biden,
intervened with a  request that…before any “cattle” guards were 
fired, they be given six months of retraining  for Arizona border
guards.  ‘Times are  hard’, said Joe Biden, ‘it’s only fair to 
the cattle guards and their  families!’
