You will love this one, I haven't stopped laughing yet . . . . .

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 (even sometimes across highways), to prevent cattle from crossing over (so cars can pass through without a gate, but cattle will not pass). 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. 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!!

Before the Secretary of the Interior could respond and presumably try to straighten him out, Vice-President Joe Biden intervened with a request that before any "cattle guards" were fired, they be given six months of retraining.

And these guys are running our country — God help us — These guys certainly can't and won't!
