The government and the power of the badge.

The  Power of the Badge…..

A DEA  officer stops at a ranch in Texas and talks with  an old  rancher. He tells the rancher, “I need to inspect  your ranch  for illegally grown drugs.” The rancher says,   “Okay,  but do not go in that field over there,” as he  points out the location.

The  DEA officer verbally explodes saying,  ”  Mister,  I have the authority of the Federal  Government  with  me.”  Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he   removes  his badge and proudly displays it to the rancher.   “See this badge?  This badge means I am  allowed to go wherever I wish…. On any land.   No questions asked or answers given.   Have I made myself clear?  Do you  understand? ”

The  rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes  about his  chores……

A  short time later, the old rancher hears loud  screams and  sees  the DEA officer running for his life chased by  the  rancher’s  big Santa Gertrudis bull……

With  every step the bull is gaining ground on the  officer,  and  it seems likely that he’ll get gored before he  reaches  safety.   The officer is clearly terrified. The  rancher throws  down  his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top  of  his  lungs…..

”  Your badge! Show him your BADGE!!  “

    My great grandfather in Russia trembled when shown the Badge Of The Czar. He immediately reached into his pocket and emptied his wallet. Those without money were escorted to the police station and accused of resisting arrest.
