    The BLM is doing nothing to preserve the rare genetic bloodlines of wild horses — one horse is the same as another. They are only concerned with getting their quota. They probably released the wild horses with strangles hoping it would spread and wipe out the entire herd. I put nothing past the BLM.

  9. Karen Kennedy Says:

    I getting together a group from New Jersey/New York. Any one interested?

  10. LoriProphoto Says:

    Maybe I need to think about attending this, I have been soooo bummed out that I have been able to do nothing other than sit here and send e-mails, make phone calls etc. I am in northeast Central Indiana, near Muncie, Nini where in Ohio are you?

  11. Jill Says:

    Anyone driving from Western North Carolina /North Ga who I could share a ride with?

    Can a van be rented to help folks to and from the airport who might be flying in?

  12. Angela Sellitto Says:

    Is there anyone going from Illinois?

    • LoriProphoto Says:

      Angela, where in Illinois are you? I am in central Indiana near Muncie, my problem is I dont have reliable transport but would seriously consider going to this if I can find someone to commute with and share expenses!!

  13. Jill Says:

    Did Laura post earlier, needing riders from Montana?

    THIS REMINDS ME OF A NEIL DIAMOND SONG–CAN’T REMEMBER THE EXACT WORDS–YOU PROBABLY ALL KNOW IT–SOMETHING LIKE “PACK UP THE BABIES AND GRAB ALL THE LADIES AND EVERYONE GO”—SOMETHING LIKE THAT. I CAN HEAR THE SONG RINGING IN MY EARS AND SEE EVERYONE ACROSS THE COUNTRY HEADING TO D.C.

  15. Scott VanderMolen Says:

    Wow! Wish I could go to this!! We just had a little protest here, not too long ago,…when President Obama came here! I think he may have actually read some of our banners too!! I’m out here in Las Vegas!

    It’s a real shame what the BLM is doing,…rounding up, putting them in corrals,…and then selling them to be slaughtered in different parts of the World,..Asia, etc.,…all so that some crooked “Fat Cats”, can make more money!!

    It’s also really interesting to see that a lot of People are still unaware of just that,….that all of those Horses are being chopped up for People to eat!! The BLM, is seriously trying to hide that,…they keep bunches of them in the corrals, so that People think, that they’re just being held there! Biiiiiiig cover up!

    The law says that Horses can’t be sold for Human consumption,…in the United States,….and naturally, the two Countries that border us, could care less! And, it’s pretty easy for them to trailer them there! They’re (BLM) throwing all kinds of distractions out there,…so People don’t know about the killings. Saying they’re over populating,..starving,..destroying the environment,..just one lie after another,…and the sad part is some people believe it!

    And they are working like gang busters, right now,..getting as many as possible before those laws change! Got to hurry up and make those BIG Horse meat dollars!!!!

  17. LOUIE COCROFT Says:

    Vote for the Top 10 Ideas for Change in America
    Ideas for Change in America is a crowd-sourcing competition that empowers citizens to identify and build momentum around a diverse range of ideas for addressing the challenges our country faces.

    From January – February 2010, more than 2,500 ideas were submitted and voted on by 100,000 people across the country. The top three rated ideas from each issue category, listed below, qualified for the final round.

    Final round voting begins on March 1 and ends on March 12. The 10 most popular ideas will be presented to relevant members of the Obama Administration, and Change.org will subsequently mobilize its full community to support a series of grassroots campaigns to help turn each idea into reality.

    http://www.change.org/ideas/view/stop_cruel_blm_round_up_of_wild_horses

    This idea is currently in 16th Place and needs 107 more votes to be one of the 10 winning ideas. It was fourth in the first round.

    If you feel this is important can you please post this on your site and send on in whatever way you see fit.

    Thank you!

    EVERYONE needs to watch this YouTube video and then email the link to all their contacts:



    This short video shows why we ALL must be outraged. The BLM is spending MILLIONS of our tax dollars to kill and torture our Wild Horses.

    In the worst economy since the Great Depression, President Obama and his Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar are asking for $75.7 million dollars in fiscal year 2011 primarily for more roundups …

    What a disgusting misappropriation of our tax dollars!
