Seems like only yesterday, we were pointing and laughing and shaking our heads at our PSA buddies. Oh wait…… it was! They have had a stellar week of stupidity and I have to admit, I am impressed with their ability to keep getting knocked down with the truth and get back up again and argue. They kinda remind me of `Weebles’ in that way. Look it up if you aren’t old enough to remember or didn’t have a happy childhood. We have quite a bit to cover so sharpen up your pointing fingers, settle in and get ready to laugh, because it’s Point and Laugh Friday! Today’s edition will be brought to you by the letter `o’, for obtuse.
This past week has been a fairly quiet one for the fearless leader of the PSA’s, Slaughterhouse Suey. She began the week with her usual schtick of trolling the internet looking for some support of her dream to mass murder our equine friends, but was only able to come up with a few articles. Naturally, she encouraged her army of would be horse eaters to go comment and naturally, they got distracted by shiny objects and belly button lint and never quite managed to do so. It seems that Ole Suey’s beady eyes are firmly focussed on New Mexico right now as they appear to have the facility that is closest to being ready. Sadly for the horse eaters, Gov. Susana Martinez is not having it and remains unmoved by their `sky is falling’ shrieking. It was interesting that Suey chose to post this article as there were a few statements made that are not great news for her mission. This one was referring to Valley Meats Co. owner Rick de los Santos:
“He said the USDA initially told him last year that it would move quickly on his application, but he has since been told that because of the controversy over domestic slaughter, the agency won’t make a decision until after the election. His business, he said, is now sitting idle because horses cannot be slaughtered in the same facility as other animals under USDA rules.”
I don’t know about you, but that sounds more encouraging for the anti-slaughter faction, so we should thank Slaughterhouse Sue for bringing it to our attention. Perhaps we should chip in and send her some pork rinds and a tube of Bute or something. She has mainly gone to ground for the balance of the week, so one can only assume she is writing poetry and dreaming of a day when no horse is safe from slaughter.
It seems that after his flurry of two whole blog posts, that Douchebag Duquette has been returned to Suey’s basement to sharpen up his crayons and bone up on his grammar skills so he can dazzle us all with a new posting soon. He did use his off-leash time effectively by bumping up his other blog post from last week. Like he said, he is very proud of it. He also found the time to post an article about the HSUS before Suey snapped the leash back on him and made him shut up again. We can only assume she keeps him pacified with promises of having a real job killing horses one day. Maybe in the meantime, she can go buy him another nice pony from a real trainer so he can take all the credit again.
This week was also Holy Mother Theresa’s turn to be unsupervised. She actually kinda had a meltdown on us. It would seem somebody else dared to blog about her and to show us all that she is holier than us and doesn’t care, she posted this little gem:
“Wahoooooo! I’ve earned myself TWO BLOGGER STALKERS! Not the death threats I’ve been working toward, but blogger stalkers just the same! Nameless, faceless, insignificant cowards that can do nothing but regurgitate things I’ve said and would say again in a heartbeat, but HEY! I appreciate the recognition! Can you imagine the pathetic existence they call “life?” Sitting in their dark holes they call home, stroking their pet viper, poison pen in hand, submersed in disdain and wrapped up in hate? What an ugly way to live. Can you say dis-eased? The Animal Rights Movements is mental Illness disguised as philosophy. TRUTH! But really…many of you have expressed concern for my well being due to attempts at character assassinations. I want you to know I appreciate your concern, BUT I AM OK! I am SOOOOO OK with it all, so PLEASE don’t let it worry you for a second. Mathew, Chapter 5 conveys some really good lessons about our Christian walk and faith, called the Beatitudes. Beatitude #8: Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. So…see! I’m Good! I’m on task. I’m GOLDEN! I’m doing my job and being recognized for it! Poor ‘whittle satan is scared and has to employee the assistance of his earthly zombies. Every time they blog, they expose themselves for who they are….mentally ill, haters. It’s GREAT! Come on blogger stalkers…surely you can do better! You haven’t got past tickling my funny bone! My God is sooooo much BIGGER than their pathetic little demons.”
Does anybody else picture her with her hair standing on end, wild eyes and kinda half giggling, half crying in a maniacal way as she posted this? I really would love somebody to do a psychological study on a person that thinks that only satan and atheists don’t want to see horses tortured and slaughtered, but the holy people do. Of course after she posted this rant, she returned to calling some of us `hoes’ and other less than christian names. Just to make sure we all knew how little she cared, she posted this same rant in a few places. Oh dear…..
Mendy Tobiano continues the downward spiral towards complete irrelevancy. While making an announcement of a change in writers due to the `regular writer’ being busy or something, both she and NT resurfaced today asking for stories from their three fans and promising `exciting news to come’. Given the lack of effort into her blog lately, one can only hope it means she is giving that up. More likely she is creating another identity and beginning yet another blog. I can’t sleep at night from the anticipation! The few times Mendy Tobiano decided to pop online this week, she overshared and aired her dirty granny panties for the world to see. You gotta love that about her. The only relation most of it has to do with the horse slaughter issue is karma and for some reason I find this Craigslist posting she is so proud of to be serious comedy. Bless her heart! (http://columbiamo.craigslist.org/rnr/3188846793.html)
Aside from the oversharing, she mostly dropped not so subtle hints about what a wonderful horsewoman she is and when nobody paid attention, she had NT come in and do it for her. Business as usual……
This brings us nicely to one of our favorite PSAs, Daffy. Because I had her and her crazyass mother in time out for nearly a month, I figured I could lift the settings as it was snagging other people up in the spam filter. Surely they had given up and gone away a long time ago. Wrong! Less than an hour after lifting their time-out, they were both on this blog, post bombing and pissing everybody off. Mama Crazy registered something like 5 different accounts to try to navigate around the filter and pretended not to know herself. Daffy proudly told us all that her sore-footed dink of a barrel horse is now bred and expecting a backyard baby. Hopefully, it looks a bit better than one of her more recent breeding experiments…
Remember a few weeks ago when I posted about the ethics behind supporting slaughter while running a rescue? Well that caused a certain amount of drama and the very public exits from the open Facebook group from the two rescues in question. Sadly for them, they don’t quite get that nothing online is private and they continue to frolic with the horse eaters behind closed doors and on other pages. Tsk tsk….Ladies, if you support slaughter and love your horse eating buddies, say it loud and proud. Hiding out, while still supporting them kinda makes me think you know you’re in the wrong and the people you get donations from wouldn’t be amused if your true colors were shown. It kinda makes me want to out people again….
I’m sure none of you can forget the PSA that is mad at the rest of us because she elected to send her too crippled to live horse on a 30 hour truck ride to a Canadian slaughter-house. I don’t know about you, but if somebody like that ever wanted to buy one of my horses, the answer would be no, no matter how much money she had. Lucky for her, PSAs have no regard for horses and their suffering so one of the backyard breeders stepped up to the plate and sold her a baby that is soon to be weaned. Everybody pray or send up good vibes for this poor horse, it is about to go out of the frying pan into the fire of ignorance.
One of the new hobbies for the PSAs seems to be opening up new Facebook groups so they can discuss slaughter. Personally, I think it is baiting as they don’t ever really welcome anti-slaughter opinions or facts and just tend to swarm and insult the few people that actually do try to hold a civil discussion with them. They are still in denial about the banned drugs in horses and they still don’t think it’s a big deal. They are also still incapable of reading any document that does not have big print and pictures. After being confronted with facts about the ban on certain drugs in horses and provided with link to the recent discovery of tainted meat from Canada,this is what they had to say about it all…
“So out of the thousands upon thousands of pounds of horse meat processed daily, one shipment has been recalled? I’d say that’s pretty minor but the anti slaughter sanction are sure puffing out their chests and walking around strutting like Banty roosters about it, aren’t they? LOL. That’s like saying 100,000 horses are raced in a year and 1 breaks a leg so let’s condemn the entire industry. Unscrupulous folks will be there, everywhere. It’s why there are inspectors. And a ban on certain drugs is no indicator of it being bad, just of it not being tested for. You do know Katherine M that there is a MUCH larger market than just the EU, correct? They ain’t the only ballgame in the park!”
– Yes, because offloading your toxic meat into the food supply is so scrupulous. Ignorance, they name is Andi Harmon aka Buckaroo Fangirl
“Ah, but a withdrawl time in horses HAS been teste. I asked a very knowleadgable vet about it. She said the time frame for complete withdrawl from bute is 48 hours, although traces have been found in some horses up to 72 hours. VERY short half-life. She gave me more info about what cells it binds to and more technical stuff that I would have to go look at to put up here.”
– Good thing I wore a helmet today, although my desk is now dented from banging my head on it.. 😦
“GOOD catch! You are correct — the drug most commonly used, and called “Bute” by horse owners *is* Phenylbutazone not the stuff found in the meat recall.”
– Actually dumbass, both Bute and Clenbuterol was found in the most recent recall. Yes, it is very serious and yes, they will be finding more. (https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/rasff-window/portal/index.cfm?event=notificationDetail&NOTIF_REFERENCE=2012.1078)
“Canada has had feed lots set up for years in order to accomidate slaughter horses that come in with unknown medical histories. They currently are set up for a 6 month time period to meet the current requirements.”
– This is super awesome. Somebody should point this out to Angela Marshall so she knows that her `beloved’ horse that she shipped up there to await his execution still has a few months to hobble around on his sore feet in a feedlot. I bet she’s just happy that she didn’t waste his meat and sleeps just fine at night….Sure glad she had his best interests at heart…
So we end another edition of our Point and Laugh Fridays. While we didn’t see a lot of new things from the PSAs, I’m sure with winter coming and knowing how much they hate spending their beer money on feed for their horses, they will be redoubling their efforts to slaughter horses in the coming weeks. The rest of us need to be mindful about upcoming deadlines and be making our voices heard by the right people. Please take the time to read this flyer (http://equinewelfarealliance.org/uploads/Adult_Campaign.pdf) and share it everywhere. As for me, I promise to get at my emails on a more regular basis. Keep them coming! Take the time to appreciate your PSAs as they really do help our position without meaning too. It’s all well and good to bat them around and play with them, but remember to feed them carefully. Rumor has it a few of them still have a couple of teeth……
