Hey Everybody! What an awesome week it’s been on all fronts. Our PSA pals have been flying high on Delusional Airlines and letting their freak flags fly like never before. We’ve had the return of a few favorites so much so that it was almost like a class reunion for our Sunday’s PSAs. As always, I’ve learned some new things this week thanks to our buddies. Mostly I’ve learned that I’m `elitist’, but we’ll get to that in a bit. I actually don’t have a problem with being called that because it sounds so much more fun than being called `high maintenance’ which is what the other half usually hangs me with. But I digress….Let’s get right down to business because we’ve got a lot to recap this week. Welcome to Point and Laugh Friday….brought to you by the letter `I’ for insanity.
As always, we start with the Grand Dame of the PSA crowd; none other than Slaughterhouse Sue. As we discussed earlier, she loaded up her current favorite ass barnacle, Puppymill Patterson, and took a little road trip to Washington DC, where they roamed the halls on capitol hill delivering their message of how they are going to save the horse industry by eating all the unwanted horses and keeping backyard breeders in business. They were joined by fellow aspiring horse eater Annette Sweeney and had the pleasure of dining with Crazyass Steve King where they presumably bonded over their mutual blood lust and hatred of all animals. Despite their full social calendar, Suey managed to find time to have another meeting with the USDA where she was told what we already know. Nothing is going to happen before the election. For some reason Suey found this news to be encouraging. I guess I liken it to Dumb and Dumber where a million to one chance is still a chance. You probably had to see the movie to get that reference. Anyhow, as Suey has said she needs to recover and unwind from her social whirl in DC, she only found time to dredge up one measly link for the UH loyalists. Basically, she found some article about a former employee of an HSUS horse sanctuary attempting to sue them. (http://www.capitalpress.com/oregon/mp-humane-society-CAFO-091812)I’m not really sure what it has to do with anything, but as per usual, Ole Suey kept things classy with her preamble: “Figured you all would appreciate this news report about HSUS being sued by a fired employee over environmental violations. Something about running a CAFO (confined animal feeding operation) at their Duchess Sanctuary in Oregon. All sorts of smart alecky retorts come to mind…”turnabout’s fair play”, and “pot calling the kettle black” are a couple of the g-rated publishable ones…”
I guess the fact that the it smacks of a disgruntled employee trying to cash in escapes Suey because as long as she can find a way to put the boot in on the HSUS it’s all good in the hood. I, for one, look forward to what she comes out with next as she seems to feel that sufficient time has passed that people have forgotten about all the other lies she has been caught in over the past month. I’m predicting a Facebook linking extravaganza in the near future.
Sadly with Puppymill Patterson being wedged the furthest up Slaughterhouse Sue’s ass lately, Douchebag Duquette and Holy Theresa Manzella have been relatively quiet. Poor D-bag was only let out of the basement briefly to type in two nonsensical comments to do with being all impressed with a pie chart. You know, because if you make a pie chart, that means it’s really important data. Holy Theresa has mostly been busy whipping herself into a lather over the presidential election and calling for the US to leave the UN. Yeah, I don’t really get that either, but then again, I’m not a redneck hillbilly. She’s also been busy conspiring with D-bag Duquette and assures everybody that “He’s got BIG things brewing to make us all happy when he can talk about ’em! Send positive energy his way.” If there is a God, that means he’s going to blog again soon. I’m so excited!
This brings us nicely to the alternate reality of Mendy Tobiano. She got her knickers in quite a twist when I mentioned the lack of grooming on her world-beating Mustang and devoted an entire blog to how it’s her `choice’ to not groom her animal and other justifications for her slovenly ways and poor animal husbandry. I dunno, not only do I like my horses to look well cared for, I find the time spent grooming them allows me to notice little things that may become problems if not addressed right away. I also like spending the time on them. We also saw NT morph into several personalities this week, all with the same writing style, and take a big issue with `Elitist Snobs’. I gather that I’m in that club because of the grooming thing or something. If you recall, other than the `Mendiness’ of NT’s persona, we also have the `brutally handsome’ single farrier that likes to talk about female genitalia quite a bit. That personality seems to have gone MIA and a `barn dad’ that isn’t a horse guy has replaced him to whine about why they should be respected for not owning horses or some crap like that. I guess NT forgets that it’s actually the PSA contingent that look down their snouts at people that don’t own horses or live in the city and frequently tell them they shouldn’t have a say on the issue of slaughter. NT then went on a tirade about horses being a LUXURY, which is also kinda what a lot of us on the anti side of things have been saying for a long time, but I’m sure she had a point in her own mind or something. I didn’t really get it other than one of our former Sunday’s PSAs, Doris Kelsey (https://shedrowconfessions.wordpress.com/2012/07/29/sundays-psa-2/)chimed in and proudly informed the four readers of the NT blog that she managed to keep her hoard of unbroke ponies AND still collect social security because she has ” never listed my ponies as an asset and that has never been questioned by social workers or social security”. I guess getting taxpayers to support your hoarding habit is a PSA thing. Yet another personality of NT’s complained about people wanting to buy horses cheap and how offended they were by that. This leaves me very confused because according to the PSAs there is this glut of unwanted horses that are completely awesome and people can’t even give them away. I have to admit I skim rather than fully read the NT blog entries due to the crappy fiction and the fact they are beginning to give me vertigo with all the flip-flopping going on. I also get this image of a large bossy cow of a woman shaking her finger in my face with all the `damns’ she likes to pepper her writing with. I have real issues with trashy people so it’s just not working for me. I’m thinking of starting our own Anti version of `Why is NT so Angry?’ soon….
Now for a blast from our past. Daffy’s back and she’s just as dumb as she ever was. She has taken up residence over on a debate page on Facebook and I suggest you go enjoy her while she lasts, because she is mostly up to her old schtick of poor grammar, contradicting herself and picking fights, so I’m guessing a banning is in her near future. She’s mostly talking about how super awesome her horses are and how she has horse meat in the freezer. At least we have finally figured out why she is so stupid. Apparently she is all hopped up on Bute and has been for twenty years. “I have taken bute, actually taking some right now, because normal pain meds do nothing for my blown knee. Have been taking it for yrs. Just like my 2 old timer friends who have taken it for over 20 yrs. a peice a day. in your book they should be dead, but i can bet you they both would out work you any day. Healthy those two are.” I guess God really does look after idiots and children. Good to know…
Do you know who else has been back with a vengeance and spreading her pearls of wisdom? That’s right….none other than Buckaroo Harmon! I swear it’s a wonder she can find a cowboy hat to fit that big head of hers. She’s really been busy stumping for the buckaroo fuckery she’s so fond of over on the debate pages extolling the virtues of big loop roping and other abusive crap buckaroos get into. She’s also pretty much an authority on EVERYTHING to do with horses according to her and I’d have to devote an entire blog just to her to cover it all, but I thought y’all would like to hear how she likes to hobble break her horses….“I hobbled Jake for the first time in a plowed field, got out a lunge whip and tried to make him move.” Buckaroo has lots of other great training tips too. She’s still getting wet panties over spade bits and all that crap.
Buckaroo is also still up on the slaughter soapbox and spreading her wisdom on the slaughter issue…
.”*sigh* “Humane”. What is inhumane about instant death? Even if the first shot doesn’t do it and the horse “suffers” another 30 seconds, is that not better than old Dobbin slowly starving to death in someone’s back yard or being turned out to fend for itself in the “wild”, of which it knows nothing of?….”
– Well a starving horse can be rescued and come to know a good life. There is no rescue from a bullet in the face. I’d also like any of these people to hold their hand in a boiling pot of water for 30 seconds and tell me that it’s no big deal like they think `another 30seconds’ between shots is. That ain’t even half of the pain and suffering an animal will experience if the first shot isn’t clean. I’d also like an actual verifiable statistic on the number of horses turned out to `fend for themselves’ in the wild….
“And the “banned substances” — you know, up until 6 years ago, it WAS still going on en masse in this country. Drugs have a withdrawal period, as has been determined by several studies; just because the FDA hasn’t done a study means nothing. The US is not the “be all, end all” you know. And the EU isn’t the only market for horse meat.”
– Buckaroo Harmon is one of the PSAs that absolutely refuses to accept that Bute is banned and will continue to be banned for a good reason and withdrawal periods are only for drugs in the blood stream, not the tissues. She argues the Bute point endlessly and no amount of facts and research is going to penetrate her thick skull. Good thing I put my tinfoil helmet on before writing this blog today….I always feel my IQ drops a few points if I spend too long reading their drivel.
We also had a brief check in from yet another former Sunday PSA, Randy`Asstard’ Janssen. You may recall him and his love of horse tripping (https://shedrowconfessions.wordpress.com/2012/08/05/name-that-psa/). Seems he had himself a good ole time tripping horses and torturing them at their National Finals in El Paso.
“We had a great time at the National Finals USA, in El Paso. The lienzo was made of West Texas Rock and very attractive, with the Franklin Mountains as a back drop. Francisco “Pancho” Flores did a spectacular Mangana, standing on his horse doing Florero, while they passes the horse. He drops into the saddle to make the catch. We had lunch with Sr. Castillo, who was the announcer. He has been a Charro since 1950. He was given the golden spur, for his work with Charreria. He is a very interesting man. He was born in Mexico City, but learned to be a Charro in Guadalajara. He now lives in Washington State, where he helped start 14 Charro teams. He is a wealth of information about the nuances of Charreada. Looking forward to the National Finals in Zacatecas.”
What I find particularly interesting about his little blurb is the mention of the `spectacular’ Mangana some old asshole did. Mangana is horse tripping or `fore-footing’ the horse. The last I heard this practice was banned in Texas so I’m wondering why they get away with it. Is it just me or does anybody else ready `Mangana’ as `mangina’ every time they see it? No? Good Ole Randy likes to call those of us disgusted by his `sport’ racist, but I can assure him that I wouldn’t care if you were black, yellow, white or a member of my immediate family; if you think this is entertainment you are an asswad and there is a special place in hell for you. End of story.
So there we have it. Our PSAs have put in a stellar week of asstardishness. As usual, I barely skimmed the surface. I have another pending entry that kinda needed its own treatment and hope to polish it off this weekend. *insert polishing turd joke here* If you haven’t already, please go check out Heather’s blog entry debunking some popular PSA myths. It’s all kinds of awesome. I should know, because according to the PSAs we are one and the same person. (https://heatherclemenceau.wordpress.com/2012/09/16/horse-sense-vs-non-sense-10-more-enduring-myths-from-the-pro-slaughter-posse/). Hopefully, y’all recognize that I’m being sarcastic because not only am I not Heather, we don’t write like one another or look remotely the same. I’ve also never been on her side of Canada other than stopping over in airports. I’d also like to leave you with an update on `Buddy’ the horse at Safe Haven. We’ve been following along with his progress since the PSAs called for his immediate euthanasia a few months back and wrote him off as a hopeless case. He is now up to 700lbs from his original 515lbs and doing great. The people at Safe Haven are doing an amazing job with him and their other rescues. That seems a happy note to quit on. As always, thanks for the emails and comments. That makes you all part of the `team’ so go forth and claim to be me. It’s awesome being me most days!
