I had this in my e mail this morning.
Attention all members!!!
The admin of this board has been notified as of today by executive order by the office of the president of the USA ALL ag related websites INCLUDING forums and bulletin boards are now being monitored by the USDA, as well as independent groups one of which is PETA, for evidence of animal abuse. They will also be looking for violations on grazing permits and federal land usage etc. Our little home here is included in the list. Do as you wish with the info.
I will have more for you later today.

What makes me suspicious about this release is that the USDA and PETA are both in the same announcement. Neither is required to announce their listening in but I can see why the USDA might announce it if they did. It’s unlikely the PETA group would and if they did announce it it would seem to me to be against their interest in “catching ” someone doing something that they disapprove of. Personally couldn’t care less if PETA reads our stuff, or if they approve or disapprove what we discuss. IMHO most of these types are misguided, uninformed, wackos anyway and as far as I am concerned can read all they want. They might learn something enlightening.April 1, 2009 at 2:43 pm #51425Robert MoonShadowParticipant
Rod ~ I concur… and I also just remembered what day this is, so…April 1, 2009 at 3:37 pm #51421Carl RussellModerator
Not only the day it is, but we need to remember how fast dis/mis-information can travel on the net. I for one won’t flinch.

Given what the date is it very well could be a hoax.
Checking here http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing_room/executive_orders/ I can find no such order.
Of course if they are monitoring this site I doubt they would find anything wrong.
It would be an opportunity to expose some facts about their organazitions.April 3, 2009 at 9:59 am #51424ArtieTParticipant
If this is not a hoax – I hope they learn something!
