Ken Salazar offers to "punch out" reporter Dave Philipps for wild horse question

Kathrens says Salazar also brushed past her, refused to shake her hand and told her, "You know, you should never do that."

"I can't believe that a top official in Obama's cabinet could be so defensive," she says.

On the wild horse issue, Salazar may have plenty to be defensive about. Philipps's exposure of the BLM's inability to account for hundreds of horses that were supposedly "adopted" but have disappeared is only the latest in a series of revelations about brutal roundups, poorly managed holding facilities and soaring costs of the removal program, which many horse advocates believe is not justified.

But Kathrens insists, "This isn't just about wild horses. America needs leaders in Washington, and the President needs cabinet members who respect citizens, respect the laws, value discussion and working toward mutual solutions. Ken Salazar displayed none of this" last week.

A spokesman for Salazar told the Denver Post that the Secretary "regrets the exchange."

I'll let all in a little secret about the Salazar's Family, the land of John Salazar or Elliot Slazar was originally  owned by Jose Candido Salazar and should of gone to his FOUR grandchildren but was stolen away by the Evil Salazar cousins.

This is not just a "public" lands issue.  Bogus animal cruelty charges are being launched all over Colorado at landowners with water & mineral rights in order to financially bankrupt owners.  Media smears are the norm; brainwashing the unsuspecting public with false statements and accusations to make landowners look like villians.    Verification of the whereabouts of fraudulently seized horses is non existent and both of the Salazar boys, along with the corrupt inhumane socities, which have "BROAD POWERS" courtesy of the Ag Dept and State, are behind it all.  The Ag Depts goal is to get them off the land and then slap a Ag Lien on the landowners after they have put astronomical fines on them.  It is so diabolical, yet so simple.  Wake up Annie, and get your gun.  The government is coming to take your property any way they can, and it seems to be consistently illegal.
