The Arrogance of Authority

A DEA officer stopped at a ranch in Texas , and talked with an old

He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown

The rancher said, "Okay , but don't go in that field over
there.....", as he pointed out the location.

The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have the
authority of the Federal Government with me !"

Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly
displayed 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 nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores.

A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up, and
saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by the rancher's
big Santa Gertrudis bull......

With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it
seemed likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached
safety. The officer was clearly terrified.

The rancher threw down his tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the
top of his lungs.....

"Your badge, your badge,...... show him your god darn BADGE........ ! !"
