Horses could soon be butchered in the U.S. for human consumption after Congress quietly lifted a 5-year-old ban on funding horse meat inspections. Congress lifted the ban in a spending bill President Barack Obama signed into law Nov. 18 to keep the government afloat until mid-December.
Now they didn't allocate any money for inspections but -
"The USDA issued a statement Tuesday saying there are no slaughterhouses in the U.S. that butcher horses for human consumption now, but if one were to open, it would conduct inspections to make sure federal laws were being followed.
WTF anyway! This gets to be old shit. There's much worry in the horsey world. "if you acquire a horse, you should be a responsible owner and provide lifetime care."
You go ahead and do that and it's real special that you are able to care for your animals so well. But you're no different than these religious assholes wanting to dictate to me what is going to be right or wrong. It's the same. Don't tell me I can't eat horse if I want. Pure bull shit. Never have but don't make it a crime if I do want to taste it. Sheez!
There's two here. They're real nice. I feed them at times and pet them. They are not mine and I do not want to own any. Could I eat these?? Cody is a bit younger than Slipknot and it looks like he's capable of putting a pretty decent steak on the table. Do I want to butcher one. No but I could if needed. Fyi cat tastes real real good too and that does not make me a bad person. Will I chop this really nice grey one that showed up here and been feeding? No but if hunger would enter the picture it would be her before Cody.
It's human nature and I understand that but our society cares more about their animals than human beings that are so negatively affected by this country's actions around the globe. We are not allowed to see the death and destruction the real essence of butchering animals or the aftermath of blown apart butchered humans in our name.
If we did this country's position on war and positions taken on human life and animal life would change for the better.
