Obama’s List of Broken Promises Grows
Frustrated by a “do nothing” Congress full of posturing, self-righteous old farts who couldn’t broker a simple business deal if their lives depended upon it? Sick of seeing the feds piss your hard-earned money away while you can’t get a single elected official to acknowledge your existence let alone actually listen to what you are saying? Tired of broken promises, dashed hopes and the death of the American Dream? Well we have some good news for you; the President of Change has now officially been inducted into the hall of “Do Nothing” with special honors for being a self-serving, narrow minding, promise breaking twit. And we are surprised, why?
Yesterday, all of us who took the time to sign a petition calling for legislation to be implemented to ensure that American horses, both domestic and wild, will never face the horror and cruel, predatory business of horse slaughter received a really cool and groovy email from Obama’s Under Secretary of Food Safety for the USDA, Dr. Elisabeth Hagen. Her love note is inserted, in its entirety, below:
“Thank you for writing to relay your concerns regarding horse slaughtering. We appreciate your involvement in the We the People project and value your input on issues facing our country.
The humane treatment of horses reflects the values of our Nation.
Recently Congress lifted a ban prohibiting federal funding for the inspection of horses, which had prevented the slaughter of horses for human consumption for the past five years. While Congress has technically lifted the ban, USDA does not expect horse slaughter to resume in the near term as a number of Federal, state and local requirements and prohibitions remain in place. Furthermore, there have been no requests that the Department initiate the authorization process for any horse slaughter operation in the United States at this time.
While some horses continue to be exported to other countries for slaughter, USDA makes it a priority to ensure that these horses are transported and treated humanely. For example, USDA recently extended protection to horses delivered to collection points prior to export, reflecting the Administration’s commitment to protecting animal welfare.
Thank you again for your input on this important issue.”
I think I am going to hurl.
First off, anyone with half a brain knows that there is no market for butchered horses and the obstacles to put up a plant are many while looming over the horse-eaters heads is the possibility that the entire process could be banned, forever. We all know that, at least those with a brain, education or at the very least the ability to read. Those that bleed horse blood and want horse slaughter initiated in this fair land are the biggest bunch of uneducated “rubes” that ever walked the face of this planet, (I calls um likes I sees um, that is why this is an OpEd) just check out a few of their Facebook pages and/or comments for a quick step back into the last century and a dynamic example of why tigers eat their young. Cheezzz…
Secondly, I am so glad that the President is making it safer for the horses on their way to being continually stabbed in their withers, with a knife, until they lose muscle control and then their throat is slit by a Mexican worker. You just gotta love a President like that and by the way, Obama, your USDA doesn’t do squat to help the horses have a safe journey on their way to a horrible hell. They are impotent, powerless and derelict in caring out their duties but I am sure the trailers full of terrified horses love the fact that you thought about them, once.
Two weeks ago we called for a campaign to call and fax the White House demanding an Executive Order be issued to protect our American horses from bloody foreign exploitation and I renew that cry again. Jerry Finch wrote an excellent letter to fax (HERE) and the number for the White House comment line is 202-456-1111 while the fax is 202-456-2461
Jam the phone lines and clog up the fax machines as we are just NOT going to stand for the stupidity that pervades D.C.. I have given up on all the rest of the political hogs feeding at the Federal trough but not the Number one offender, he is going to be held accountable and is currently number one on my speed dial.
You broke your campaign promise to Stop the Slaughter, Obama, we are coming to collect what is due.
Virtually, Occupy the White House, TODAY!
