Where are the environmental voices of influence. Where is Hollywood? Where are all the loud-mouth, bigger than life – opinionated – *forces for good* that are so quiet the silence is deafening.
I cannot separate the US government from the tragedy that is unfolding RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES. The US government is taking taxpayer dollars and waging a war on the wild horses and burros of this country .. and 80% of the population is OPPOSED. The media is JUST STARTING TO WAKE UP. Ken Salazar started the assault — and it has escalated under the new “czar”. I just got an email this morning about the President’s trip abroad.
“In a visit to Tanzania, the President launched a poaching crackdown, dedicating the United States to fighting back against poachers and criminal wildlife traffickers.”
Mr. President – with all due respect – the wild horse slaughter is happening in your own backyard. This is happening under the direction of someone YOU appointed — and with one word you could stop this.
Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Duncan Hunter, Jr. —- how can you permit this? 80% of the people YOU SERVE are opposed to this and somehow, this massacre keeps going. Helicopters, sharpshooters —- what the hell is going on here?
The USDA has decided to start killing horses for meat. Am I living in the United States? Over 90% of the population opposes that. DOES ANYONE SEE A PATTERN HERE?
This administration – ALL OF IT – delights in doing JUST THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT. Mr. Obama … you scare me more than George Bush did. You are indifferent, distant, removed and selectively ignorant.
