Less than a week ago Slaughterhouse Sue was merrily posting up propaganda articles on her United Horsemen page about how a slaughter-house was going to save the small town of Rockville, Missouri and how happy everybody was about it. She has been promising to be in business by the end of the September and encouraging her supporters to `hammer’ the USDA to get the inspections under way. And who can ever forget her parting words in March of this year when she tried to foist the same bag of crap on Mountain Grove, Missouri? “”Discussion’s over. Make all the noise you want. We’re going into business” Well, it turns out that Ole Suey’s ducks weren’t quite all in a row. Shocking, I know.
Thanks to a damning investigative report by John Holland, released by The Equine Welfare Alliance (http://www.equinewelfarealliance.org/uploads/Rockville_plant_report-final.pdf),we now know that “September” must be Suespeak for “never”. Either Slaughterhouse Sue isn’t very good at business or she’s just a ginormous liar. Personally, I think it’s a whole bunch of both. It seems that the facility that Ole Suey has led people to believe is undergoing renovations in preparations to be the first horse slaughter facility to open on US soil since 2007, does not actually belong to her or any of her various organizations she likes to hide behind. In fact, it seems the ownership of the plant is in question all together and is currently tied up in a quagmire of liens and legal actions against the former operators and the myriad of dummy companies they set up to avoid paying their bills and court judgements. It appears Slaughterhouse Sue and her attorney Dan Erdel were more than a little premature when they formed two new companies (does anybody have a tally on how many this makes for Sue?) and requested federal inspections for the Rockville facility. Of course since they don’t actually own the property, that’s all for naught anyhow. What they also neglected to do was file applications for the required permits with various Missouri agencies. She also couldn’t be arsed to take a break from writing shitty poetry and obsessive facebooking long enough to actually let Temple Grandin know she is designing all these imaginary facilities as well.Can you say Gong Show?
In the past 24 hours, I have seen this news linked far and wide on almost every social media site pertaining to horses. The PSAs have been creepily silent about it probably because this is going to be real hard to spin to their advantage. One poor soul linked it on the United Horsemen’s page and asked if it was true. Naturally Slaughterhouse Sue has gone to ground and is not commenting on anything since this came to light, so it was up to Douchebag Duquette and Holy Mother Manzella to attempt calm the fears of the horse eaters…
“This is a silly desperate attempt from a Lawyer from a lawyer that had Sex, and drug charges against her???? Don’t believe the EWA. Remember they are the ones that did a 6 month investigation into the abandoned horse and the only ones they found were at the border in Texas”
This was the response of Douchebag Dave. Besides being nearly unintelligible, what Douchebag Dave neglects to mention is that the lawyer he is referring to is Cynthia MacPherson who is still very much a member in good standing of the Missouri Bar Association. She was falsely accused along with others by an older attorney with a long history of `issues’ and ethics violations. So much so in fact, that her accuser is the one that ended up being disbarred by the Missouri Supreme Court (link to article at the end of this blog entry). Hardly surprising to see Douchebag Dave `go there’ like the little bitch he is. Way to stay classy, Dave!
“BJ I can’t answer your question with any specific detail on this matter, but I can say that this is a typical tactic perfected by the environmentalists and used regularly by AR’s and radicals everywhere. It’s called the “Precautionary Principal” or in simple terms: You’re guilty until proven innocent. I’m sure you’re aware, is completely contradictory to the principals out Country was founded on. Unfortunately we’re seeing it more and more. They tie a business up in litigation while they spin their propaganda in an effort to discredit the effort and gain a strong hold for their position. More mob mentality.”
This was Holy Mother Manzella’s contribution to damage control. I’m still confused as to what this `typical tactic’ is that was used against their fearless leader? The truth? Shame on all of us!!!!! It seems to me that the person attempting to sell the facility didn’t have a clear title and whether or not Suey knew that or not doesn’t even matter. She wasn’t going to be able to open that plant for business any time soon since she didn’t actually OWN it in the first place. No anti-slaughter advocate intervention needed. Keep whining.
While the PSAs eagerly await for their fearless leader to rise from the ashes and make all of this untrue, the rest of the horse world grows tired of the never-ending stream of lies coming from the UH. Despite the hand wringing and rallying, they fail to realize that they can’t just snap their fingers and have USDA inspections in place overnight, nor is the USDA likely to hire and train any inspectors as long as the Moran Amendment is in play. It would be a huge waste of taxpayer’s dollars. They also seem to think the EU isn’t serious about the ID system they have mandated for July 2013 and that even if they began the process now, it still wouldn’t be up and running in time. They can argue semantics all day long and it won’t change those two facts. While word has it that Suey has turned her beady eyes on Oklahoma now, the outcome will not be any different. It’s long past time for the PSAs to suck it up and start looking at other options than slaughtering horses if they are genuine in their concern for animal welfare. At least those efforts won’t be in vain. Stay tuned everybody, Point and Laugh Friday is shaping up to be epic.
