“Salazar then comes along and suggests a hair brained idea of buying/leasing land in the mid-west to ship all the horses to so that Americans can watch them die after being sterilized.”

Salazar Takes His Reign of Ineptitude to the High Seas

The Wild Horse advocates and Environmentalists have been screaming it for the past year and no one has listened, nothing has changed except that conditions have worsened.  The Obama Administration’s selection of Ken Salazar to the position of Secretary of the Department of Interior has been in question since the day of his appointment.  Muddled in rumors of collusion and ineptitude Salazar, a rancher by trade, has made it his hallmark to bumble and stumble his way through mismanaging his federal agency while ignoring congressional inquiries and public opinion.

The Department’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has accelerated their attack on native, American wild horses to the point that over 35,000 are now held in long term pens to which the taxpayer pays a hefty price to maintain. (they cost nothing left alone on their native, congressionally protected soil).  Salazar then comes along and suggests a hair brained idea of buying/leasing land in the mid-west to ship all the horses to so that Americans can watch them die after being sterilized.  (Great plan; why not save a billion or two and allow them to stay on the land that congress designated to them {ROAM Act} where they have been doing just fine for hundreds of years?)

Now, a drilling rig blows up in the Gulf; it’s inspection record under Salazar’s Mineral Management Service (MMS) is obviously in question and even more death is rained down upon humans, wildlife and the world’s environment.  The corruption is so rampant in the MMS, under Salazar’s direction, that it finally embarrasses and pisses off his benefactor, Obama, who declares a total revamping of the entire bureau and announces that heads will roll for the incompetence.  So what do they do?  They fire the director of the MMS.  (Hey, what about the man at the wheel?)

Is anyone paying attention, here?  I guess tens of thousands of abused wild horses and their associated deaths didn’t count but now Salazar is killing shrimp, oysters, whales, dolphins, jobs and oh yes, we are losing oil that we need to power his motorcade, heaven forbid.

If any manager, in the private sector, was so totally disengaged from the inner workings of his department’s infrastructure they would be terminated, immediately.  Yet, we allow a poor choice to become an even worse choice to bumble, scramble and enable an already corrupt organization to expand and run further out of control while he is asleep at the wheel.

It doesn’t take a degree in psychology to watch this guy during a press conference and realize that  he is way out of his league as he stammers and digs for plausible answers;  he simply falls flat on his face every time he opens his mouth.  Obama, what were you thinking?

So if giving away tens of thousands of acres of your public lands to private interests, while illegally stripping them of native, protected wild horses is not enough to raise your ire, then how about the pollution and destruction of the coral reefs of Florida and all of the beaches up the entire east coast.  Is that enough to fire you up?

Call for Salazar’s resignation, there is not a qualified bone in his body, and demand that Obama appoint an engaged and competent candidate to the position of the Secretary of the Interior.  It wasn’t enough that Salazar has destroyed our wild west and the heritage that makes America great, he has now taken his campaign of destruction to the high seas and proven that nowhere is wildlife safe while Ken Salazar is at the helm.  

Trying to kill off “Cloud, the Stallion of the Rockies” was not enough for him, now he is poisoning little “Nemo”. 

This guy has got to go!

 ” Call Pres. Obama 202-456-1111 and D.C. 202-224-3121 and ask for his resignation, today!”
