Horse Haters Converged on D.C. to Plot “Final Solution” for Wild Horses and Burros
Did you watch it? Did you see it? Did you love it? With the exception of Ginger Kathrens, Executive Director of the Cloud Foundation, the witnesses who testified before the House Committee on Natural Resources, yesterday, read like the guest list of horse haters and eaters who formerly flocked to the now deceased Sue Wallis’ horse eating conventions. The BLM, Welfare Cattle interests, outspoken horse slaughter proponents, gads, my heart bled for poor Ginger sitting in a room full of so much filth and corruption. I am certain that she immediately showered after testifying in an effort to get all of that horse-hating funk off.
What a line-up:
- Steve Ellis, BLM, right…like you are going to get some real pro-wild equine testimony there.
- Dr. JJ Goicoechea, DVM, the current president of the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association and spoke on behalf of the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association, the Public Lands Council and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. “GO COWS”
- Callie Hendrickson, Executive Director, White River & Douglas Creek Conservation Districts Chairwoman, American Farm Bureau Federation Federal Lands Issue Advisory Committee and outspoken Horse Slaughter proponent. “Pass me another slab of Filly Steak would ya Billy Bob”.
- And Chairman of the committee, Tom McClintock, is a known wild horse and burro hater and his statements in this meeting make him GUILTY of violation of Title 18 (18 U.S.C. § 1001). Making false statements (18 U.S.C. § 1001) is the common name for the United States federal crime laid out in Section 1001 of Title 18 of the United States Code, which generally prohibits knowingly and willfully making false or fraudulent statements, or concealing information, in “any matter within the jurisdiction” of the federal government of the United States, even by mere denial 18 U.S. Code § 1519 – Destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in Federal investigations. Current through Pub. L. 114-38. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.) US Code. “Can ya Dig IT?”
The only witness who spoke to facts and our sensibilities was Ginger;
“Overgrazing and overpopulation are overgeneralized in nonscientific claims by the BLM to justify removals of horses and donkeys from our public lands,” Ginger told the committee, “Wild Horses and Burros occupy only 11% of public lands where private cattle (welfare cows) outnumber them 47 to 1.”
Go Ginger, but did anybody hear that, anyone? I sincerely doubt it.
Over and over and over again our government agencies and representatives dance with our sensibilities’ and trample on our rights with the wild ones paying the price.
If you have the stomach for it, watch the video but it is as clear as the big fat nose on the front of my face that the goal is to send them all off to slaughter, for the sake of special interests, and then the feds and their bedfellows can pick another species to ride into extinction. If it were up to me, I would pick politicians; their eradication could only be a boom to the environment, society and the overall health of planet earth.
But that ain’t gonna happen. So saddle up and fight the good fight, we aren’t going to let the wild ones down, not on my watch, never.
