as published in the UK’s INDEPENDENT The influx from the US, which last year sent 167,000 horses to its two neighbours for slaughter as human food, has been largely unexamined during the ongoing crisis Thousands of tonnes of horsemeat originating from the United States, which may be tainted […]
By Peter Grier, of the Christian Science Monitor “we also have fewer horses and bayonets…” Does the US military still use horses and bayonets?

Horses aren’t regulated food animals in the United States and so little testing is done for residue or adulteration that there can be absolutely no confidence level of ‘safe’ horsemeat from the U.S.
“While I ultimately supported this appropriations bill, I have serious objections with the conference committee’s decision to remove House-approved language preventing horse slaughter, language that had been in the bill for the past five years and I authored this year.”
Wednesday we reported on Wyoming State Rep. and Chief Horse Eating Fanatic Sue Wallis’ comments endorsing the shocking and perverted actions of a young Oregon woman who killed her own horse then stripped naked and crawled inside it’s carcass so that her boyfriend could photograph her before they ate the animal for dinner.

It is obvious that the sloppy serpent of slaughter has not caught on to the fact that every time she posts one of her insane and idiot comments on Facebook it is open to the entire world to see. Such awareness comes from an education that made it past the 3rd grade and evidently the evil princess of death fell off from the little yellow bus long before it made it’s way to that very special school.
