I can’t believe it’s already Friday and time for another round of pointing and laughing. It seems we’ve hardly put our fingers away from the last round. Of course, I’ve been otherwise engaged for most of this week, but thankfully our PSAs kept right on motoring in the asstard Olympics and came through as always. Bless their hearts! It’s been a rather lopsided week to recap, so let’s put on our hip waders and get on with the festivities of Point and Laugh Friday. This week is brought to you by the letter `B’ for bullshit.
When I returned from my adventures I was worried that Slaughterhouse Sue had failed to come out from under her bridge this week. Thankfully, this was not so as she has taken her freak show on the road to DC with Mindy Puppymill Patterson in tow. I would pay cash money to be an invisible observer of their special brand of crazy on the loose in Washington. Because they are so busy accosting people in the hallways, Slaughterhouse Sue only had time for this post:
“As many of you know, Mindy Patterson, Annette Sweeney, and I are working hard in D.C. Things are going good, and we are getting a good reception with the folks we are talking to. Will post more this weekend when we have had a chance to catch our breath.”
– Carefully worded? I suspect the `folks they are talking to’ may be the security personnel and various interns and disabled people that aren’t able to run fast the other direction when they see this herd of ignorance headed their way.
“This survey came along just in time to help us with our message. Very interesting…particularly these couple of sentences. This is, of course, people who are actually making a living (or trying to) in the horse business. “
– I think this was a dig at us anti people. The whole `actually making a living’ thing. Funny, how Suey whines about her poor pappy only getting a bid of $4 on one of his fine home raised steeds. We just sold a baby for $25,000 and that’s just an ok sale price. Supply and demand, Suey….simple economics.
“”As in the 2009-2010 study, slaughter is one of the most discussed alternatives. Among respondents that mentioned something with regard to slaughter, over 9 times as many respondents were in favor of slaughter as those against it (for comparison, in the 2009-2010 study, about 8 times as many respondents were in favor as those against it).”
– I’m going to link this survey for you and you can decide for yourself how selective it was in gathering information. I suppose if you did your surveying at an overnight kill buyer auction, you’d get the results you want?
Since Slaughterhouse Sue was on tour with Puppymill Patterson hanging out of her rectum, that meant that Douchebag Dave was left in the basement presumably working on forming complete sentences and washing her granny panties. At any rate, he was unable to address his minions over at the UH or post on his super terrific blog. Holy Theresa has been mostly distracted by the metaphorical shiny object of the upcoming election and is busy whipping herself into a frenzy of paranoia and promoting hatred of minorities. Make no mistake, we are in very scary times at the moment, but our greatest enemy is ignorance and fear mongering….just sayin….
It seems that Mendy Tobiano never takes any time off facebooking and blogging. Without me around to poke at her this week, her stories and rantings have gotten stranger and less believable if that is even possible. First off, she informed us that the equine version of NT was the son of a Lethal White. He would be a scientific miracle if that were the actual truth and I’m assuming one of you called her on her BS as she quickly posted up a clarification saying it was a typo. Sure it was….just like all her other not quite right terminology and google-speak is…We were also treated to the retelling of some of her old stories about what an amazing horse whisperer she is, with a few adjustments because bullshit was called the last time she trotted out this tired crap. Mainly the mythical work driven mustang that wins everything at shows, despite never having seen a pair of clippers in her life, and will only load in trailers with full tack on. Huh? I swear The Black Stallion books are far more believable than most of her anecdotes. Mendy Tobiano also informed us that real horsemen just don’t weigh in and speak up on the slaughter issue because they are smart enough to keep their `damn mouths shut’ and not alienate one side or another. Again, I have several hardboots in Kentucky I’d like to introduce her to that are about as `real’ as it gets and they would be more than happy to tell her where they stand on the slaughter issue and other abusive practices. The other thing with NT this week is she has taken to cursing out her readers and then whining about why no anti-slaughter people will weigh in and offer her solutions. I guess it’s probably like why I don’t waste a lot of time discussing philosophy with functional morons….what’s the point? Besides, if you want to engage people and have them contribute, cursing them and calling them names isn’t how the rest of the population outside of the Ozarks go about it….
With Buckaroo Harmon busy being a fangirl and trying to sell off all her horses, it was up to other PSAs to bring the crazy for our entertainment this week. It seems the UH page is being censored with a heavy hand and after a clusterfuck over a burned horse, some members got their noses distinctly out of joint and left the page. One posted this farewell message which pretty much sums up the assholism that went on earlier in the week…
“As much as I have enjoyed a lot of the education I received from this group, I’m sorry to say that too many of the members are just ‘not my cup of tea’. I came home to 79 e-mail notices, some of which were downright vulgar and disgusting, all the result of people ATTEMPTING to voice their varying opinions and perspectives on a thread revolving around the issue of a burned horse. I had hoped this group would be a place for folks like me…’middle of the road, ownership-rights oriented, who want to see the return of humane slaughter to the U.S.’ Well, I can guarantee all of you that it will never happen when you can’t treat the folks on your own team with a little respect, dignity and courtesy. Thanks for welcoming me so readily. I did learn a lot. Unfortunately, most of what I have learned lately is that this group is fractured beyond repair. It’s time for me to find the folks who are serious about the issue of restoring humane slaughter as an option for American horse owners, as opposed to wasting time bickering like schoolyard bullies. I’d expect that from the ARs. Thank you to those who were so kind, and who tried to provide the rest of us who truly want to learn, with a broadened education. Best of luck in your ventures.”
Wow! I guess they aren’t content with harassing and irritating anti-slaughter people, they are now turning on each other. How very `Lord of the Flies’ of them! Hopefully, Mama Suey will get on her broom and return from DC in time to do some damage control for our personal amusement. There’s been a lot of other crazy going on with the UH, but it probably deserves its own treatment. Hopefully, things slow down around here long enough for me to wade through some of it.
So that’s basically our shortened recap of asshattery this week. I expect to be back up to speed next week and pull a few things off the back burner. We have Slaughterhouse Sue and Puppymill Patterson’s triumphant return from DC to look forward to and, now that I am back, we can look forward to more hostile and paranoid rantings from NT based on whatever brain fart I happen to write about on any given day. As always, I like to close off with good news to cleanse our mind from the PSA taint. I’ll leave you with a picture of Buddy. The horse that the PSAs wanted to be euthanized immediately so he could be their slaughter beats starvation poster child. Seems to me that Buddy would definitely disagree with that line of thinking…..there is life after starvation and he’s looking better and better. Happy Weekend!
