I have been to the Mexican border there in Arizona and there are a lot of concerns not only by local ranchers and land owners, but all over the United States.
The concerns of having a porous border where illegal drugs, human trafficking, and illegal aliens continue to be serious problems. Especially the threat of terrorism is being exported by the Middle East.
With today's many complex issues that our President and his Vice President must have to contend with i.e., the economy, three war fronts, crime, Obama Care, the upcoming elections in 2016, we can feel their pain.
Actually, some might say because of their positions, we feel our pain.
Well, because of the many extraordinary situations our President and Vice-President must face every day.
I can understand the pressure they are working under. The Obama Administration was having some difficulty dealing with Colorado Ranchers and farmers and there was a confusing issue concerning Colorado "Cattle Guards" that the Obama Administration had.
For those of you are not from the South West you might not know what a Cattle Guard is.
We have them at Fort Hood Texas as I would see them all the time.
For those of you who might not know what a "Cattle Guard" is, they are horizontal steel rails put at fence openings, in dug-out places in the roads adjacent to highways (sometimes across highways).
They prevent cattle from crossing over acting as a gate.
Cattle will not step on or over the rails keeping the cattle in the correct pasture or lot.
They are called cattle guards. A story has been circulating around about the following:
President Obama received and was reading a report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado. I could just see his mind working here as he was thinking how he could get back at some of these Conservative Christians who love their faith and their guns.
The Colorado ranchers had protested Obama's proposed changes in grazing policies, so he ordered the Secretary of the Interior to fire half of the cattle guards immediately!
Before 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"!
I'm sure that the Arizona Border Guards would be thankful for the thought, but I can see why they have endorsed Donald J. Trump for President.
With these kind of decisions being based on this kind of intelligence, can you imagine how the Iranians thought about Secretary of State Kerry giving in on their "agreements" like cash for hostages (ransom) and the nuclear deal?
Like St. John the Baptist, we need to call out our Politicians especially when they support the killing of the unborn, the Gay Agenda, and their war on Christianity. Pray for America.
