May God bless this fine gentleman for his willingness to help others. Not just
with one of his own cows (5% of a 20 head herd!) but with his efforts organizing
to get others to help.No government program or bureaucrats or
taxpayer money needed. Just honest, caring, hard working individuals. But,
that's the way people are in "flyover country" working hard on
their ranches and farms and living by the Golden rule. The cowboy way.
if it was a prerequisite to be a cowboy before being a politician we would be
sitting pretty now as a country. hats off to this fine man
And people talk about global warming. This is evidence it is bunk. It is good
that people that help there are more than willing to help people.
For you liberals that may read the comments here. What these ranchers are doing
is CAPITALISM. Since you won't understand how that is capitalism, you need
to go and read "Theory of Moral Sentiments" by Adam Smith.
@DN Subscriber 2Flyover country receives more money from the gov't
than they pay to the federal gov't.
@higv"And people talk about global warming. This is evidence it is
bunk. "A snowstorm in South Dakota disproves global warming?
Okay, a few things...1. The US has warmed roughly 1C the past 100 years.
That is not enough of a change to completely eliminate snowstorms in South
Dakota in October. 2. The Earth is warming. All land and satellite
datasets have shown a clear upward trend of .11-.15C per decade in the last 30
years (the satellite era). 3. Warmer temperatures lead to more moisture in
the atmosphere which leads to heavier and more frequent heavy precipitation
events. This storm, one would note, had an extremely high snow total.Now, I'm not going to claim that this storm is a result of global
warming. Global warming merely shifts the odds of things and direct attribution
is not particularly feasible for events that can occur either way, just more or
less frequently with an altered climate. What I will say though is that one snow
storm in South Dakota... is not proof that all the other data we have is somehow
God bless this fine gentleman in his desire to help the farmers/ranchers in
western south dakota. Every so many years, they seem to get a very brutal early
winter and get dumped on. My family has been in farming and unfortunately, one
is at the mercy of mother nature. God bless the wonderful people of western
south dakota. It has some of the most breathtaking scenery. It is very
beautiful. Have been there a few times.
I grew up in this small town and know this man well. This ranching community is
similar to him. When someone gets hurt sick or passes away this community gives
all they can to eachother. Credit to him for his work, but learn of this
community and you will see what charity is about.
You know, all it takes is one hand reaching out to take another and so on.
Reaching out when you can is one of the all time greatest gifts for all man
kind. Thank you sir, you are a giant with great perspective.
