Arrogance of Authority

From My InBox:

A DEA  (Drug Enforcement Agency) officer stopped
at a ranch in Texas , and  talked with an old  rancher.
He told the rancher, "I need to inspect  your ranch for
illegally grown drugs."
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 of the United States of America with me!"
Reaching  into his rear pants pocket, the arrogant
officer removed his badge and  proudly displayed it to the  rancher.

"See this f*****g 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 then 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.
(I just  love this  part....) 

"Your  badge!
Show him your f*****g BADGE........ !"
