Just Horse'n Around

Tired Kitty Princess

A 2010 memory...

Headed For Removal... and there you have it...the enemy is in the house

Another unpublished blog uncovered...2012

I started this blog several months ago, but got frustrated and put it aside. I felt like I was wasting my time complaining once again, so I just gave it up. Plus things that were happening were moving to fast to write about. But I have since made the decision to communicate my concerns. A big thanks to Trent Loos for speaking up and saying what's on the minds of many grassroots producers. It's a hot issue and producers are upset--- American families should be just as concerned. Add drought conditions to over 55% of the U.S. land mass to the ever increasing bizarre regulations being pushed and implemented with the help of some of "our very own" we will soon see producer's ability to provide affordable animal protein to a growing population as a thing of the past.

April 2012
In a discussion about attacks on our animal agriculture industry, my wise, reflective daughter once again shared some very insightful thoughts that went like this...
She was sequestered. We were on our way to the city, two hours away---I had her undivided attention. I expressed vocally, for the umpteenth time- over a 5 year period, my routine concerns. What I Was Saying: “Producer's livelihoods are being destroyed", animal activists have connections with this administration”,“government is over-reaching”, “the EPA is destroying us”, “ and that Agenda 21 and ICLEI thing-it starting to make sense, etc. etc. etc.”
What I’m Sure She Was Hearing: “Whaw whaw whaw whaw whaw whaw.”

But then I ventured deeper. I started sharing concerns about dots that were connecting, disturbing things that I had been witnessing for over a year. I shared my concern that the enemy was becoming harder to distinguish, and expressed my fear that it had infiltrated.
My thoughts poured and her listening piqued. I had questions... lots of them.
"Why are some ag publications promoting animal ag in one article and in the same issue subtly giving animal rights activists a platform to speak from?" I shared my concern that certain ag journalists and publications seemed to be creating added concern in the minds of consumers by repeatedly posting the negative about our industry through the postings of unverified undercover abuse videos, and highlighting repeated food safety issues. Wasn't this a tactic used by trueanimal activists?
I questioned why some of our own animal ag leaders were collaborating and securing jobs with a large conglomerate ranch owned by a large communications company? I expressed my concern about information from a very legitimate source that this conglomerate had been told to buy up feedlots in a neighboring state. And why was this large ranch siding with animal extremists through the Global Animal Partnership program?

We talked about trust and the fact that it’s been shattered. I tell her that I question the motives of folks I thought were animal ag-friends, and we rehash a peculiar incident concerning the involvement of a third party auditing firm and animal activists on our ranch earlier in the year and the bizarre silence from those whose duty it is to inform producers and protect our industry watched as extremist attempted to dismantle it.
From conspiracy thoughts, I shift to venting. I vent about the arrogance of some ignoring the fact that grassroots farmers and ranchers might be considered experts in their field, "Shouldn't those providing a large portion of the funds and who possess lifelong skills and knowledge of the industry be tapped for advice?"
Instead, dunce hats have been handed out to most with the unspoken suggestion that we sit quietly in the corner with a checkbook in hand. And in the rare instance when real producers--- not veterinarians, not academia, not animal scientists, not financial analysts, not industry execs, not ag media, not professional poll takers or career spokespeople--- have been asked for their input on matters that would decide their future many times that feedback, which could fill a book, has been relegated to a dusty shelf stamped "discard".

And what's the cost to animal ag producers when communication is one sided and fuzzy intentions are carelessly implemented by ill informed decision-making leaders? What is the cost to animal protein suppliers when those who know what's best for producers ignore those producer's concerns and suggestions and instead make decisions to form alliances and uphold agendas with the enemy...those who want to destroy animal ag? We loose producers! Devastating unintended consequences are created when heavy financial yokes are hung on the necks of thousands of fellow animal ag producers in the forms of debilitating regulations created and brought about by our "very own animal activists and her friends" "An animal protein supplier is lost forever, along with their contribution to their communites and society” I moan.
"And just when did all of this "sitting on our hands while we watch extremists take over our animal ag industries" pass acceptance? Where's the "Yellow Tail" outrage?" I moan.

After bloviating for nearly an hour, I asked my daughter her thoughts. “What do you think is going on?” “Do you think it’s all connected or am I just crazy?” Just like her dad does when I jump him for an instant answer, or quick reply to my "breakneck speed" thoughts, I endure a long moment of silence. She breaks that silence with these words and quietly says, “Mom, they did it to the Indians, the government thought they knew what was best, they wanted the land, and they took it.” They removed them from their homes and put them on reservations, it took time, but they got it done.” She gave me a quick piercing glance, our eyes locked and our eye brows raised. The rest of the trip was spent in contemplative silence.

So what is going on? Are animal ag producers in the midst of a movement to remove us from our land?

Do our ag friends who dabble in collaborating with the enemy and promoting that collaboration realize what they’re doing? For the sake of animal ag's survival questions must be asked.

Looking Back

I don't like looking back but recently did some reflecting and reread my old blog posts from 2009, it started with the recent fires as we had encountered much the same in 2009 fire on our ranch. That led me to re-reading my posts and realizing just how much life has changed since Obama and the Dems, George Soros and his murky, monolithic, acronymic dressed army poised with positve titles but which in all reality release radical regulatory green destruction; Maurice Strong, HSUS/ASPCA, Jason Clay and the World Wildlife Fund, Sierra Club and other global green extremists and radical animal activists have infiltrated and changed our lives, our farms our ranches, our country. Over-regulation has caused America's ag production exports to dwindle. Remember we were the Bread Basket of the World not too long ago and we provided the world fruits and vegetables in abundance? Well, regulations packaged within the U.N. Agenda 21/30 Sustainable Development Plan has destroyed that.
I came across some extensive research I'd done under "I am An Ag Activist" . These dated posts tell a story. I had done this research believing I could make a difference and perhaps change some beef leader's minds and maybe just maybe they would change the direction they were taking our American cattle producer.
But that was before I figured out these leaders were not going to listen to my concerns about HSUS' relationship to the Global Animal Partnership beef premium program, and they were not going to listen to my concerns about Agenda 21 Sustainable Development driving true producers out of business, nor my concerns about the World Wildlife Fund's infiltration into our beef business and the concerns about the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef and the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef GRSB and the ties these programs have to the United Nations and that "continuous improvement" was straight up Marxism.
Oh, they pretended to listen, acted concerned. But reality bit me in the butt. I would eventually figure out their words were only words and held no truth. These leaders had no intention of veering off the course they had signed up to complete-to advance the cause of the enemy-GLOBALISM- and would only continue assisting them in vertically integrating our beef industry. Those decision makers didn't much care what happened to the producer only how they might keep their jobs, their titles, their egos and make some bucks along the way.
It was during my third or fourth "Freedom to Operate" (what an ironic title) committee meeting at the 2015 National Cattlemen's Association Summer Conference where I sat as a representative for the American National Cattlewomen's Association and it was after years of begging these same industry leaders to NOT go down this globalist path, not to pull up a chair at the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef table which only gave these evil extremists and the U.N., who designed the table, built the table and who were seating the table with gullible people they could use for "credibility".
I repeatedly begged them to research the World Wildlife Fund. They ignored my concerns and laid down the welcome mat, invited them to grab the decision making helm of our industry and thus began the nudge towards "sustainability". I would watch as our industry experts spent millions of checkoff dollars trying to define this undefinable term which was designed not to be defined.

No, I'm not one to look back, I don't even like to repeat a path when I run, I'll run a full section...if I'm lazy I'll beg Brad to pick me up. But I seldom run back. I feel like I'm regressing. When traveling and I drive past a convenient store and miss my chance...too bad, so sad bladder we're not turning around. I will turn for history...I love going back for that. That's where I went several months ago...back to revisit some history.

Yes, we were sailing along pretty smooth until Obama took the helm and began putting the finishing touches-fundamentally transforming the U.S. into a socialist "progressive" nation. Hilary's tidy little word for it is "progressive", "continuous improvement". But you can't put lipstick on a pig, it's fascism and when researched a bit it's easy to recognize just how the democratic party fervently and feverishly tried to put it in place during O's tenure.
Viewing the big picture you can sum it up easily: the last eight years we have all been featured in the United Nation's Agenda 21/30 Story whether we knew it or not.

Democrats believe that citizens can't care for themselves so so the government must step in nearly succeeding in taking control of our freedom; they almost succeeded in imploding our God fearing, free market, capitalist nation. But the Lord gave us a second chance and I pray we don't throw it away by "going home" as attorney and Trump transition team member, Karen Budd-Falen put it. "They" and that includes the globalists and radical extremists, the Dems, the RINOs-Republicans in name only-the scarietst dudes of all, similar to the Oleander flower so beautiful to behold but a killer in disquise...this great fur-ball of individuals and groups want to squelch and remove the things that made America great, her RESOURCE PROVIDERS and PROTECTORS.
They have systematically and incrementally been whittling away at her food producers, education and health care system, banking/financials and her military and "they" are not going home, in fact "they" are digging in deeper.
So we can't go back to being comfortable. We must stay, stand and stop further infiltration. My challenge to you is to become an expert on what matters. Read and nderstanding the Bible, be ready in season and out of season. Study and know your rights learn the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution, make a habit of studying these then you'll "be ready in season and out" ready to share the truth with others. Let's guide our kids and grandkids forward to a great future and not watch while they're being dragged towards progressive socialism.

Well, I guess I was a little pertubed when I wrote this probably five years ago... I'm cleaning blog house and found it. I guess I'll publish it to get it out of my way. No sense sweeping it under the rug :) I might add that today I do love town...and I do love my country home but I still have a distasste for gossips and those who enjoy dismantling other's lives with words.

Communities. Towns. Neighborhoods
Those words always sounded warm and fuzzy and comfy and NICE. When I was a kid growing up in the country I always thought "Town" would cure what ailed you. I wanted to live there. I wanted to be a part of a neighborhood. Walk to the grocery store. Walk home. Pet a dog. Talk to strangers as if they were my best friends. Gaze at street lights out my bedroom window, listen to the neighbor's music; yapping dogs...and ladies. The glitter of "Town" has always lured me...until today. Today I realized that "Town", especially small ones, can be quite cruel.
Devastated is the word that best describes how a young hard working, conscientious business woman, mother of 2 felt, after the destructive actions and words filtered the town, by a prominent man who holds a prominent position, at a small school, in a small town, who lead and swayed a small group of people, to sever business ties with this young entrepreneur who owns a small local shop. The reason for this attack on this person's livelihood: a family decision to move their children to a neighboring school which had a music and band department. Sound absurd? Does "Town" still lure me.
No, "Town" doesn't look that appealing to me anymore, especially those that harbor prominent "bullies" who can take down local businesses on command. I'll stay in the "country" where I know my enemies.
