    "My heroes have always been cowboys...pony-tailed Willie crooned the tune...and they still are today". But now, even the iconic American Cowboy is under siege from leftist, non-gender liberal loons that want an erasing of the past and a rewrite for the future molded in their secular and naive way. A few days ago, I was alerted to a story regarding the University of Wyoming and their new slogan, "The World Needs More Cowboys". Its very fitting because their logo and mascot is an American Cowboy riding a bronc, displaying to the world that the University of Wyoming is tough, on top and in control. But enter stage left, the "liberal queen of wussiness", Associate Professor Christine Porter, who calls the new slogan racist, sexist and possibly hurting recruitment of out of state students. This female pillar of "gobbly-gook", told the "Laramie Boomerang" that the new slogan evokes images of stereo typing Western icons in the minds of some faculty and misrepresents UW's research educational goals"...really. She went on to blather, "I care most about our University having a slogan that makes ALL people feel welcome here" and went on to add... "I also care about us not embarrassing ourselves as an institution across the Nation. However proud this state is of our cowboy tradition, it just does not translate outside the Rocky Mountain West"...so ignorant. And then this droopy eyed, sandal wearing professor (assumption) said "For me the clearest reason its unacceptable is the word "BOY", excluding anyone who identifies as female"...hold me down. There is a lot more to being a "cowboy" than what this "Liberal Lucy " purports. For me, being a cowboy all my life, the "Cowboy Image" reflects respect, patriotism, caring, "riding for the brand", I.E. being true to give all to your employer. A cowboy gets the job done, no matter how long he works or how hard the task. A cowboy is ready to fight for what's right and put down what's not. Many COWBOYS have fought in our military, many did not come home. Many lost limbs and still had the grit of "Cowboy Tough" to continue on and never quit, never give up! I know because I've helped some of them learn how to adapt and overcome their horrible injuries to still ride and...be a cowboy. I've announced thousands of rodeo performances in my career and NEVER, NOT ONCE, have I ever seen a Cowboy take a knee or sit during our National Anthem...we're "Cowboy Proud" of this great Nation. Roy Rogers, Hopalong Cassidy, Gene Autry, and many more, created an atmosphere of "Do the right thing and be honest",...what can possibly be wrong with that??! To all the graduates and current students of the University of Wyoming, you should be proud, chest busting proud of having the image of the American Cowboy as your slogan and logo whether you are a lawyer, a scientist, a teacher, whatever!...be proud of representing a University that displays a part of our Nation's heritage that has stood for a value system that today is under attack. In regards to Ms. Porter saying that the "Cowboy tradition" does not translate outside the Rockies...try telling that to the Pendleton Roundup, the Calgary Stampede, the California Rodeo in Salinas, Cheyenne Frontier Days or Las Vegas, the home of the National Final Rodeo. When I announced at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, a little Japanese boy with his mother approached me after one of the performances. His mother explained that her little boy (and Japanese people in general) loved American Cowboys. He asked for my autograph...so...I signed my hat and gave it to him and tears welled up in his eyes as he walked away wearing a cowboy hat!! I'm proud to be a cowboy and will be to the day I die. I want boots and wranglers and hats at my funeral because I know the people that wear these clothes are the most honest and trust worthy folks on God's earth...my heroes will remain and have been...COWBOYS!!
