Cattle Guards

Bud and I just received this from an Australian Friend

 For those of you who have never travelled to the west,  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.

 A few months ago, Kevin Rudd received a report that there were over 10,000 cattle guards in New South Wales & Queensland. Graziers had protested his proposed changes in grazing policies, so he ordered the Minister to fire half of the “cattle guards”  immediately!!

Before the Minister could respond and presumably try to straighten him out, Minister for Employment Julia Gillard, intervened with a request that.. “before any cattle guards were fired, they be given six months of retraining.”

 And they are running our country, OMG!!
