I cannot believe it’s already Friday again. Where does the time go? It has been a hellaciously busy week on all fronts and freak flags have been flying everywhere in the world of the PSAs. So many asstards, so little time to do it all justice. This week was quiet for some of our feature players, yet marked the return of some former Sunday PSAs. That’s the one good thing about these guys; when one of them takes a break there are always about three more ready to step up and dazzle us with their ignorance. So, let’s get right down to business and get our fingers out for another round of Point and Laugh Friday! This week is brought to you by the letter “C’ for clodpate.
I mistakenly assumed that with her upcoming speaking engagement in Colorado, that Slaughterhouse Sue would be busy gathering propaganda and composing her speech on how she’s going to save the horse industry, which she is not a part of. Once again, she proved me wrong and came with the links to inspire her followers and disgust the rest of us. The woman is a linking machine! Her two standout efforts were the link on M. Wells Dinette adding horse meat to their already disgusting and Fear Factor inspired menu that we discussed yesterday, and a link to a stored file to educate her minions on Bute and horse meat. You know, because we haven’t already gone over this eleventy billion times before, may as well whip a red herring out of your butt and toss that out there too. What transpired was that the inevitable subject of Bute and horse meat came up when Suey linked the article on M. Wells. While there was actually a PSA or two that appreciated the dangers of ingesting adulterated horse meat, we were treated to the usual rounds of denial and anecdotes of all of the PSAs that snort up Bute like nose candy and are just fine thankyouverymuch. The whole concept of carcinogens and not all side effects being immediate just can’t penetrate their thick skulls at all. Suey loves that about her followers because when she links up a study from Dr. Henneke as evidence to back up her claims of `harmless’, they just accept that as gospel. Nevermind the fact that Henneke’s is not a toxicologist or even considered to be an expert in much beyond body scoring horses. The three UH followers were duly impressed with the report because Henneke’s name was on it. That’s a bit like lending credence to his opinion on gynecological issues because he has a `Dr.’ ahead of his name…..some people are easily placated…I just know that I am sure looking forward to the reports out from Sue’s big speech in Colorado next week…
I am really excited to report that this has been a HUGE week for Douchebag Duquette. Finally, he has been let out of Suey’s basement without his muzzle and ball-gag! Yes folks, D-bag combed up his chin hair and gave an interview! It was like Christmas came early this year! (http://quarterhorsenews.com/index.php/news/industry-news/6491-united-horsemens-front.html)It’s full of the usual happy BS about slaughter being a necessary evil and how it is a way to humanely euthanize unwanted horses and he’s even got his equally moronic spouse in on the act as well. D-bag also informed everybody that the methods of slaughter in Canada are not subjected to humane protocols. I’m sure this is big news to the Canadians who advocate keeping slaughter up and running. It’s a fairly brief interview and D-bag neglects to mention that he has hosted a horse meat BBQ for his prospective clients in the recent past. Lies of omission? Go read it and decide for yourself. D-bag also popped up on the UH Facebook page and besides bumping up `important’ things for everybody he made this statement: “Soon you will all be seeing what we are doing to change the industry and welfare back in favor for horses. We still have some I’s to dot and t’s to cross. Bare with us folks. we are like ducks on the pond right now…I know I seem a bit distant, but we are making tremendous strides.” I’m not really sure what he even means or is alluding to but it may just be that he’s passed his Grade one spelling test or that his potty training is nearly complete.
I bet y’all thought I forgot about Holy Theresa this week, haven’t you? Sadly, I have not. She spent a significant amount of time declaring jihad on all Muslims this week, because I guess her interpretation of the bible says it’s ok to hate a large group of people based on the actions of a few. She also decided to leave house, home and rescue to take a little jaunt out to hang with D-bag Duquette at his head quarters. Apparently they are giving each other riding lessons and back slaps or something. She has also been very busy on the UH page tooting her own horn and pushing her view on `horse harvesting’. Oh and I’m still a whore apparently….
This week also saw the return of Mindy Puppymill Patterson. I’m here to tell you that Puppymill is outraged and has issued a call to arms for her fellow animal haters. What is the subject of her wrath this time? That would be Measure 5 which will be on the ballot in North Dakota in the upcoming election.
“ALL HANDS ON DECK, UNITED HORSEMEN! Our friends in North Dakota need our help! HSUS is pushing their ballot initiative, Measure 5 to “Stop Animal Cruelty.” This measure would do NOTHING to prevent animal cruelty! Instead, Measure 5 is another DECEPTIVE measure by HSUS and I believe it is an attempt to 1) reclassify horses as companion animals (They have grouped dogs, cats AND horses together in the language of the initiative!) and 2) Measure 5 is another back door, sneaky way to obstruct U.S. horse processing! Since horses transported to slaughter are regulated by USDA/APHIS under the Horse Protection Act, a hauler could get a non-compliance in North Dakota for something insignificant, and under Measure 5 be charged as a FELON!!!
SADDLE UP! PUT ON YOUR SPURS AND LET’S GET BUSY TO HELP OUR FRIENDS IN NORTH DAKOTA! THEY NEED OUR HELP TO DEFEAT THE HSUS-DRIVEN MEASURE 5! LET’S RIDE!!!”
I can see why the woman who proudly spearheaded the legalization of puppy mills in her home state would feel that Measure 5 needs to be struck down. Measure 5 seeks to make it a class C felony to “maliciously and intentionally burn, poison, crush, suffocate, impale, drown, blind, beat to death, drag to death, exsanguinate, disembowel or dismember any living dog, cat or horse.’ Most people think this is a good thing, but not Puppymill and the UH. Hell, D-bag even gave her call to arms a `bump’ because he thinks `this is very important’ that they strike it down. Despite the paranoia of horse eaters and animal haters, there is language in Measure 5 that makes exceptions for hunters, agricultural workers, and veterinarians among other things. Really, it won’t change a thing for anybody other than the few sickos that like to abuse and torture animals. They will get a stiffer fine and/or jail time as well as be mandated to go for psychological or psychiatric assessment and counseling and prohibited from owning a dog, cat or horse for a period for up to five years. I think it’s a VERY good thing and it actually has quite a bit of support. However, as you can see by the above quote, Puppymill is convinced that this an attempt to reclassify horses as companion animals and outlaw slaughter. Clearly she’s off her meds and not reading with any sort of comprehension as none of those things are actually in the language of Measure 5 (https://vip.sos.nd.gov/pdfs/Portals/FullTextofMeasure5-AnimalCruelty-Nov6,2012.pdf). Puppmill has also stated that she believes Measure 5 is an `attack on the horse industry’. I have news for our paranoid princess and her little ass monkeys. The reason horses are in the language of Measure 5 along with dogs and cats is because of the overwhelming number of dogs, cats, and horses that are involved in abuse and neglect cases compared to other species. Not too many people get called up on the carpet or reported for abusing gophers and seagulls. Those are the `big three’ as far as animal abuse charges go and yes, they do need protection. Most people with a firing synapse are also aware of the direct correlation between people that torture animals and domestic abuse and violence, let alone most serial killers began their careers torturing animals. Sometimes these people truly scare me…
Moving right along…..it’s time to check in with Mendy Tobiano. Now, rumor has it that despite the loud announcements of getting out of business that NT is still engaging in a little horse trading on the quiet. It probably explains the support of slaughter, because when you play on the low-end like that, you’re never going to get rich and rarely will you turn a profit. Repeat business is not likely either. So on that note, NT continues to tell us how super awesome horse traders are and how they are all such upstanding citizens. Of course this was complete with wildly exaggerated tales of heroism by an anon person, although I don’t know of a lot of other `nearly six feet tall big gals’ that may or may not be NT. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at the content considering NT considers Wikipedia to be THE go to source for everything. Personally, I give Wikipedia about as much credibility as The National Enquirer, but that’s just me. NT also made a point of telling us all that we shouldn’t call her or anybody else fat or ugly. Duly noted. I’m wondering if `bovine’ is still acceptable. I have had a few cows protest but they don’t have human rights so until I hear from the petulant pony, I’m going to go ahead and use that!
Guess who else popped up on the radar this week? None other than Devorah The Even Holier Than Theresa! You may recall Devorah from this former feature: (https://shedrowconfessions.wordpress.com/2012/08/12/sundays-psa-3/). Devorah has taken a break from harassing celebrities and gay people on the internet long enough to share her views on saving the horse industry. How fortunate for horses everywhere! Like every good horse abuser that has been charged and has had her animals seized, Devorah is still refusing to accept any responsibility, instead blaming it all on anybody else..“calling the authorities is the worst possible thing a person can do. In my case, a dog and cat animal control officer lied to a municipal judge in order to obtain a siezure warrant on some of my horses, in my absense, and subsequently put 6 high dollar stallions in an undivided stock trailer and allowed them to fight for the next 36 to 48 hours without feeding them then photographed the injured horses and falsely reported to the local paper in order to cover up their own stupidity. Not stopping there, they then trumped up bogus cruelty charges against me to divert attention away from what they did and have stonewalled me ever since having entangled me in the legal system. I had to remove them from the jurisdiction of that county inn order to protect them FROM the local humane idiot who took possession of horses he had absolutely no clue how to care for. He didnt know a mare from a stud….To make matters worse, God is telling me to forgive them and love then anyway. Hilarious.” She then proceeds to go on the stereo-typical rant of any good PSA…
“Can we make a bullet point list of the exact issues that have the animal rights folks shorts in a wad, i.e. I dont believe a horse should be slaughtered ever. Then I can say, shall we place the unwanted horses in your front yard? In other words there needs to e some money behind the mouth. You will find that many who bust their butts day and night to care for their horses are truly those who love them as opposed to the big mouthed bleeding hearts who dont support any personally or one to two in their ackyard if any at all.”
I’m going to sound like a broken record here, but I AM an industry professional and I deal with many of them all the time. More of us don’t support slaughter than do. Devorah went on to voice her support of `humane processing’ and blessing everybody and telling them she loves them. She’s entertaining, I’ll give her that much….
I guess that pretty much wraps up our weekly PSA recap. We all owe them a debt of gratitude for being so whacky and entertaining on such a consistent basis. There is plenty more ignorance and bizarre logic I could touch on, but it would likely take me about a week to do it justice. Just realize that there are some of them that think they are in the majority, that true professionals understand and support slaughter, and that if you are anti slaughter, you are a card-carrying PETA, ARM, ALF member and probably don’t shave your legs either. We’ve heard it all before and we’ll keep on hearing it long after this election is over. Hopefully we’ll have an update from NNER about the Nevada 34 in the coming days, but as of now we know that charges have been filed against Dorothy Robertson and she will be in court over them towards the end of the month. Dorothy continues to have no shame at all about the condition of her horses and has been very actively talking up how super awesome slaughter is over on the UH page. Kinda hard to feel sorry for somebody like her….I’ll leave you with Buddy who still doing awesome and still gaining weight. His pictures always make me happy and remind me why it’s worth fighting this fight. Have a great weekend, everybody!
