The Super Bowl Means Clydesdales in America’s Heart

As an adult I never had the time nor the inclination to sit down and watch a group of grossly overpaid men play with a ball on a field of green grass on a Sunday afternoon; there always seemed to be something more meaningful or important to do. But never the less, regardless of what part of the world or what strange country I might be in I would endeavor to get before a computer keyboard, the following week, and attempt to find online the Clydesdale commercial that had played during the game. That has become my Super Bowl tradition and one that I look forward to with great relish.

The Humane Society of the United States cautioned the U.S. Department of Agriculture in a letter that the agency must comply with a 2007 ruling from the D.C.

Within 48 hours of the ASPCA’s news release the latest in a long list of dubious horse slaughter “front” organizations headed up by infamous Wyoming State Rep. “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis, the International Equine Business Association, issued a hollow and fact-free press release attempting to “Repudiate” the qualified and quantified ASPCA report only to fall flat on it’s face as it repudiated nothing and supplied no evidence to counter the ASPCA’s poll results.
