Wild Horse & Burro Haters Plan Conspiracy Convention

“In Utah he pointed out, there are 22 million acres set aside for cattle for forage, while wild horses graze on 2 million acres.” Anyone going to Utah in August? I’m looking for a ride

“Propaganda, Fake Facts and Bad Science will be the Central Focus…”

“They’re baaaaackkkkk!!!

Thought they were gone with “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis moldering in her grave and Dave “Doink” Douquette floundering in disgraced disarray? 

Nope; an entire new breed of equine hating, cattle promoting deviants are coming together to show their collective asses for three days in Utah this coming August.

Granted, there is no mention of slaughter in the initial agenda, but we all know where the direction of the discussion is going and the veiled intent of their “Convention”…but the fake facts and exaggerated  numbers point to mainstream media getting sucked into the buzz of wild horse overpopulation while welfare cattle outnumber the horses & burros 10 to 1 AND the equines are protected; the walking bovine…

Fear, You Suck!

I haven’t blogged in months. I’ve begun, but never finished. I guess it’s just hurt too much.

You see, Sis told me months ago that she has cataracts and macular degeneration in both eyes! She saw a retinalogist who said she needed surgery on “the good eye” first, but she was so traumatized by the visit that she never followed through!

I can understand. I would’ve never navigated my own fear and pain of repeated eye shots if my son, Bernard Jr, hadn’t been with me. Now as I recall those horrible doctor visits, I realize just how brave my son was. He never complained, even when he held my hand and walked with me into the dreaded room. He would chat with me and even joke while we waited for the retinologist to come and give me my shot. Then he would take my hand and guide me out to the car.

I have since apologized repeatedly to him for subjecting him to that horror, but really, isn’t that what families do? I told Sis I would take the bus back to Cahokia, IL to hold her hand for moral support, and tried over the months to convince her to see the retinologist and discuss her options, but she consistently refused. When we spoke on the phone, she told me she’s not even going back to see the eye doctor. She’s resigned to the fact that she’s slowly going blind, and I’m resigned to praying for us both.

The Threat of Stillness

If more people knew this, the world would be a better place.

Wilde About Dogs

5_2147 Large guard dog.jpgI recently observed a temperament test being conducted to determine whether a dog was aggressive toward other dogs. The dog in question was a large, strong breed, and there was much concern because of his past history. As I watched, it became obvious that the other dog being used in the test was very worried. She licked her lips and averted her gaze, both common stress signals. But something else concerned me a lot more: she seemed afraid to move a muscle. Was it because the dog being tested was lunging at her, barking, or otherwise being overtly threatening? No. In fact, he was standing stock still, head slightly lowered, body tensed, staring directly at her. I could feel the tension in my own body just watching it. Seconds later, the dog being tested exploded in a display that, had he not been on leash, surely would have ended in…

I never imagined I would ever contact The White House but I love our wild horses so much that I had to do something. BLM (Bureau of Land Management) has been deleting information from their website. Personally, I cannot tolerate this because it just makes it that much easier for BLM to round up all the wild horses and either “jail” them in pens or truck them away to slaughter.

Here is the email I sent to President Trump. Now I wait to see IF I receive an answer.
Dear Mr President

Please explain to me WHY so much of the BLM data regarding the wild horses and burros is no longer available on the internet. Too much of it is missing for this to be an accident or oversight.

I, like so many other wild horse advocates, think of these beautiful creatures as national treasures and just cannot understand how so much computer data could be deleted from the BLM website unless these actions occurred to keep your constituents from knowing what’s really happening to our wild horses and burros.

Respectfully,

Sandra Branum

Soldier

Feelings of sorrow
disconnect me from
family and friends.

Guilt and remorse
haunt me from
my time in Kuwait.

Will I ever learn
to thrive after all this
pain and heartache?

Can you hear my cry?

Who Gets What?

Who gets the happy memories during marriage dissolution?
Who gets the pain and tears?
Who can smile through the ascending chaos and hope Love will rebloom?

Who finds solice in being childless if such a thing can be true?
Who prays for this floundering couple so they can all “get through?”
Who speaks to The Ex’s family should they ever again meet?

Who indeed? Only someone who has already survived this heartache…
