The Ruby pipeline makes me so mad. I wondered how it could have gotten built without public knowledge. Now I know, It's the revolving door of energy workers going to work in the Dept of Interior, and vice versa back to work for the energy corporations. It's so screwed up. Thanks so much Kathy for the video.

Noted & Twittered. Why should we be surprised at this? They want the land.
Look at Trans Canada and their treatment of the lady in Texas where the judge declared eminent domain for them against her and they started building the southern extension of the Keystone Pipeline. This pipeline BTW is a done deal; it's just waiting on ratification from the State Department.
How long before you as the poor and human entity are in the way and they find any means necessary to remove you? Ask the folks in the 9th ward, Orleans Parrish, Louisiana. I'm surprised they haven't eliminated them as of yet. Rest assured that when the time is right they will.
Speak now or forever hold your peace.

Thank you so much Kathy, for this. What''s been happening to our precious wild horses and burros is beyond disgusting. I'm not surprised-just regenerates my anger and frustrations. It has been about the land and "THEIR DAM PRIORITIES. Madeline Pickens at "Mustang Ranch" has been helping to make a huge difference and has donated lands and set up safe haven for many. Unfortunately all of them are not there and the BLM has been moving through, confiscating our wild "National Treasures!" THEY BELONG THERE-----I WISH WE COULD STOP THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No wonder we are fighting a wild horse round up every other week and here i was just thinking it was some kind of scam where they weere doing the round ups to make money by selling horses at auction this explains everything thanks so much Kathy leave it to you to bust those bastards and out them lmao ilove it and i love you Kathy!

Thank you Kathy for shedding the light again. Frustrating, someone commented - Ditto ! ! ! People have enacted boycotting ,sending emails, signing petitions, making calls, encouraging people to look to their legislatures and get the pandering whores out, attending meetings, staging protests, lobbying legislatures, ad infinitum. But it's not enough ! Or at this time - not enough, because failure is not an option. I'm listening, and what to do?

The regulators who are in charge of big oil and gas have too many ties to this industry and are leasing lands to these companies such as BP for a pittance of what their real value is and then the American people are paying these big prices for gas and oil that their being subsidized for by our tax dollars! And now we find out about the real reason for the Mustang round ups off the horseís legal land - for a 675 mile long Ruby Natural Gas Pipeline which runs through the Calico Herdís protected lands! And BP is a partner is this deal with El Paso and the BLM which is letting this happen! This is a betrayal of the American peopleís trust. We want this land for our wild mustangs who have played such an important role in our history. We donít want this land which is such an important part of who we are to become yet another dead zone for life which BP essentially created in the Gulf and which had such a negative impact on the culture there taking away so many peopleís livelihoods with its destruction of nature! If we want to save these horses and our land the American people must regain their right to have a voice about what is going on in our land and our voices must be heard above the greed and power of corporations!

It is so funny how big business and the government are seeming to become one in the same. From this story, again we see how big business has it's hands in everything government related. This is our country and the Bureau of Land Management (DOI) is suppose to keep these lands free of anything that will make big bucks for big business. But no, they are sneaking around and giving OUR land over to be used for whatever big business wants it for because the people who work for BLM are really guys who used to work for big business and are greedy and are getting 2 (big) paychecks, one from us, the taxpaying citizens, and the other from big business. Who suffers in this scenario? We do! And the land (destroyed) and any wild, free roaming (like they are suppose to be) animals that live there! This has got to stop, what are we going to do about it?!
