Although people meant well by donating unwanted items, what were they thinking by leaving them while its raining?! Check the forecast before dropping them off! Would waiting till the store reopened after the holiday been so difficult?! Such a waste...
I'm slightly taken aback by your article and suggestion of "recycling" these beautiful creatures into food products. I know my opinion is probably based on emotion and naïveté. I adopted a BLM mustang many years ago and it was the best money I'd ever spent. I wish more people looked into their adoption program and those horses could be given a purpose. Quite frankly, as a taxpayer, I'd rather support the rounded-up horses, who were trying to survive and fend for themselves, then support the lazy people, with numerous kids, who are quite capable of supporting themselves, but would rather spend years receiving government assistance! That's it! It just hit me! I believe I can solve a problem for both of us! How about we recycle those horses and burros into food products and instead of allowing welfare recipients to use their EBT cards for crab legs and junk food on the 1st of the month, we force-feed them those "recycled" horses and burros?! Saves the taxpayers on all fronts! Hmmmm...food for thought! No pun intended!
I moved to Livingston from Vegas just 2 months ago and although the slower pace is great and the scenery is amazing, I don't find the locals overly friendly or welcoming. What's so wrong with "city folk" wanting a slower, simpler way of life? What's wrong with celebrities or any non-native moving to small towns and spending money in your community? Everyone deserves a better quality of life so it's unfortunate when locals make new residents feel like outsiders! Ironically, it's the locals capitalizing on the economy boosted by us "city folk" by charging outrageous rents and selling homes at a premium! And by the way, do you people actually think that John Mayer is that huge of a celebrity that he alone is going to create traffic and change the dynamics of your city?! I don't think his residency will adversely affect your city. Welcome one and all who move here in an effort to live a better life!
