So what are the names and positions, email and snailmail addresses of who we need to contact to cease this abomination on our land?
Posting information showing us how the govt or corps are doing wrong but not providing the information on how to demand the changes is the same as
reading any of Kevin Trudeau's "What THEY don't want you to know" books . . . pointless fear-mongering = "Here's what THEY are doing, but they
are too strong to stop."
So what do we do? Sit back, suck it up and let it happen?
I'm a 'doer'. If you're going to post something like this and I live in NV, you'd better list what cause of action we can take to intervene.
Otherwise, what's the point of doing investigative journalism and letting the world know? When all this research is done and the public is aware but
does nothing, this is how TPTB know they can continue to get away with EVERYTHING they do.
Contact your Senators. Right now, the Restore Our American Mustangs (ROAM) Act is stuck in the committee that deals with environment and natural
resources, and needs to get out. The House has already passed it.
The ROAM Act is the legislation that is needed to close the loopholes in the 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Act that the BLM has been using as excuses, and
repeals completely the amendment from 2004 that allows older horses to be sold at public auction with no restrictions, unlike the adoptions (known as
'sale authority' horses). There are also multiple petitions you can get to through thecloudfoundation.wordpress.com...
to help stop each
roundup, and you can also donate to the Cloud Foundation's Freedom Fund, or In Defense of Animals' legal fund, etc....lots of different things.
BTW, the horses used in Hidalgo were Paint Horses - Mustang descendants who are essentially Quarter Horses with flashier exteriors. Easier to find
multiple Paints who look very similar...tho the real Hidalgo didn't look at all like them, and Hopkins brought along a second horse who he actually
used for most of the race. You can google the real Hopkins and find the Western Horseman training articles written by him, and the questions about
him and the legends he told. He's his own conspiracy!
Viggo has spoken up for Mustangs, tho, along with Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Wendy
Malik and others.
