I'm sitting around watching some of the Natinal Cowboy Poetry Gathering from Elko,NV and thought I''ld share a taste lifted from youtube.

Cowboys were like truckers--many hours of mindless labor and only thoughts to keep the mind occupied. I suppose that is why any that have been doing either for a while tend to be deeply conservative.
Did you know the real American cowboys were mostly people of color. The European-Americans who spoke the People's English and German (?) were mostly criminals and impregnators of wealthy young women and such. Of course, it was the Buffalo Soldiers who actually made the West safe enough for cowboys to work as the European-Americans kept falling on arrows.
