Welfare ranchersI would like to add my own research on the BLM and welfare ranchers/wild horses conflict. In truth, the welfare ranchers are the problem, because they are subsidized with our tax dollars through the federal government, and they use their money to take the land away from the wild horses and burros so that they can make more money with their destructive cattle.

The BLM lands are only 20 percent owned by the welfare ranchers, yet 65 percent are controlled by them. And many people do not realize that the more control you have, the more you can do as you wish, even if your motives are bad.

So I would like for you to check out my blog to gain a better and more informative perspective on everything going on with regards to the BLM and welfare ranchers, who I now hate more than ever because they are in the many parts of our society like a disease … and many do not see it.

Unfortunately the federal government is just like us: bullied by the ranchers.

Sincerely,

Maya Logan

  1. In this age of diminishing and depleted natural resources, the warning sounded by Dr. Garrett Hardin in “The Tragedy of the Commons” is more relevant than ever. As long as individuals can profit from resources that we all own in common, there will be people willing to argue that it is somehow a natural right for them to do it.

    There is a world wide culture of ruining the Earth for personal gain. We, as individuals, often don’t have enough stake in the matter to personally step in the way to stop someone from throwing garbage into the street, spraying walls with graffiti … or ruining the lands that belong to all of us. This kind of socially destructive behavior can only be stopped because people in general refuse to accept it.

    Don’t be sucked in by the “rugged individual” horse crap. Ranchers abusing our public lands are criminals because they’re stealing from everybody else.
