Today we took one giant leap closer to a complete ban on horse slaughter. Despite the best efforts of Slaughter House Sue, Captain Douchebag Duquette and Holy Mother Theresa Manzella, the amendment to the federal agriculture passed a House comittee and will now become part of the House version of the Agriculture budget. What does this mean? It means the groundwork is laid for prohibiting federal meat inspection for horse slaughter and we have effectively blocks the backroom, 11th hour shenanigans that gave Sue and her band of pinheads a foothold in re-opening horse slaughter plants. This bill will now go to the full House for voting. It is not yet clear whether the upper house will use this version or put together one of their own.
There is still a lot of work to be done to see this through,but thanks to Rep. Jim Moran, we are well on our way. Hopefully, this issue has received enough attention that the 80% of Americans that are opposed to horse slaughter will continue to make their voices heard.
