Ok, I know I’ve deviated from our regular pattern of posts since I got back after Christmas. Like I said, it’s a busy time of year for me and I needed a break from the daily ignorance of our slaughterphile buddies. We’ve also had more important things to discuss and pay attention to and I just haven’t bothered to take the time to recap everything they have been up to. For those of you that were worried, I have not mellowed in the least. However, as you are all aware, ignorance never sleeps and slaugherphiles are no exception to that rule. So, even though it’s not Friday and we haven’t done it for a while, for old time’s sake, let’s get out our fingers for a very special Wednesday edition of Point and Laugh Friday. This edition is brought to you by the letter “S’ for STFU.
As tradition dictates, I think we’ll kick things off with the ever annoying and deceptive, Slaughterhouse Sue. As most of you are aware, Suey has had some personal tragedy in her life over the past few months. Out of common human decency, a concept that is foreign to our usual suspects, I elected to cut her some slack. However, nobody ever accused Suey of being dignified and she certainly hasn’t allowed her troubles to slow her quest to save all equines by slaughtering them. It also has not brought about an epiphany and inspired her to tell the truth. I know most of you thought I probably wouldn’t go `there’, but guess what? I am. Let’s look at a little article of lies that Suey is quite proud of. (http://trib.com/news/state-and-regional/wyoming-legislator-returns-to-work-because-she-believes-her-late/article_0884c043-8939-562d-82b8-5a5942d1221e.html) Ok, I’m going to set aside the obvious tragic element to this story and cut straight to the lies about slaughter this article contains; no doubt supplied by Slaughterhouse Sue, herself.
“But Wallis and McQueary thought that slaughtering horses for meat was humane treatment for old horses whose owners otherwise sometimes abused them or turned them out to starve. The possibility of selling old horses to slaughterhouses could mean they are valuable and are treated better. She is an executive of a company that’s looking to build slaughterhouses.”
That paints a warm fuzzy picture if you are completely oblivious to the meat industry, doesn’t it? Since when do meat buyers prefer `old’ horses? Last time I checked, it’s the young and healthy animals that are preferred for slaughter for human consumption. I guess none of those meaty Haflinger and Belgian horses her brother breeds would have anything to do with her salivating at the mouth to bring back slaughter either. Go to any overnight auction and see how many of both those breeds are currently being run through as slaughter only horses if you have any doubts. I can also show you pictures of a feedlot in Canada full of nothing but sorrel horses with blonde manes and tails if you still have doubts. Coincidence? I wish I could tell you that was the only lie Suey put out lately, but it wasn’t. She resurrected some of her departed husband’s writings on the issue and his recap of their failure of a `Summit’ a few years ago. (http://rodmcqueary.blogspot.ca/)
“What HSUS/PETA did when they closed the horse slaughter plants was to take one fairly responsible and workable solution, and turn it into a plethora of nasty, unsolvable, expensive problems. For the sake of the tribes, their horses, their homelands, and their long-term futures we need to restore the markets for horse meat, and allow them to return to their traditional methods of management. We need to help fix the broken spoke in Arlen Washines’ wobbly wheel.”
So, in the first article it was about helping all the poor starving and old horses have a value and a humane end, but this article says it’s all about helping the tribes and their traditions. I guess like any good comedian, you change up your act depending on your audience, no?
Let’s move onto Suey’s favorite ass barnacles next. For those of you new to the blog, that would be Dave `Douchebag’ Duquette and Holy Theresa Manzella. The holy one is up to her usual schtick of displaying a blatant lack of self-awareness and promoting hatred at any given chance. She is still quoting the bible and bastardizing it to suit her agenda and talking about humanity and compassion as she continues to support horse slaughter, wolf slaughter and whatever else she perceives to be a threat for her to be a redneck ignoramus. The other barnacle, Douchebag Duquette took a little trip to Florida and was seen asking his Facebook buddies if they knew of any good horse farms to visit. I sincerely hope he managed a visit to a few of the bigger ones down there and got an education on how little the lack of slaughter has affected people that are actually successful in the industry. He also found time to make a post on the UH website. Actually, I don’t think he was the writer of the post as it is not laced with profanity and grammatical errors like we have come to expect from him. Likely Puppymill Patterson is ghostwriting for him as she has done in the past. So, what is the latest butthurt for D-bag and his band of morons? It should come as no surprise that they are super pissed off that under the new Horse Protection Act that is being introduced, lawmakers seek to regulate the Tennessee Walking Horse industry, particularly soring and other inhumane practices that have outraged most people with a shred of compassion. (http://www.icontact-archive.com/sRszqmyZGmERhv5PQPZvndHQ__Dir4-I?w=4#.URmvP_eUZ8M) Douchebag Dave refers to it as a `crushing blow to what remains of the US Horse Industry’. Yes, D-bag, however will we go on if we are not allowed to abuse and torture our animals? Pull your dress down and stop being such a drama queen. Remember, PSAs are all about being allowed to do whatever the hell they want with their `property’ even if it flies in the face of basic kindness. Cue banjo music…
Now it’s time to check in with our favorite multiple personality, Mendy Tobiano. Because she bases most of her blog on whatever it is that I write about, she hasn’t had a lot to say lately. I know the fact that my life interferes with my blogging hobby must be frustrating for her, but she has assured us that she is `swamped in research’ and about to pull the penultimate blog entry out of her expansive ass at any time. What that really means is she is waiting for Wikipedia to update on whatever it is that is sticking in her craw lately, because that, to her, is the best place to get facts from. I guess she hopes that mining this blog for ideas might actually get people actually comment and participate over there besides herself and her alternate online personae. Most of what she writes about is splitting hairs and leaping to conclusions that no reasonable person ever would, but her latest shows such an astonishing level of ignorance and lack of reading comprehension, I felt it was finally time to directly address her rambling even though I loathe to. The regular readers here are well aware of the ongoing saga of 3 time convicted animal hoarder and abuser, Dorothy Robertson and the 34 horses she most recently had seized due to neglect. The rescue that ended up taking the horses, NNER (Northeastern Nevada Equine Rescue) has taken a lot of hits and public attacks as a result, despite the fact they were the ONLY ones that showed up in court to make application for those horses. In the past week, they have posted a pleas for donations due to an extremely harsh winter and the high cost of rehabbing the appalling condition Big D’s horses were in when they took possession of them. They estimate that they have spent close to $35,000 bringing these horses back to health and have had very little donations to cover expenses, leaving the head of the rescue to pay out-of-pocket. Nowhere have they stated they are in the hole for that much money or that they can’t feed their horses. hey stated they need more funds to move forward. Apparently, the head of the rescue has run into a health crisis at this time as well. It happens. What they have done right is ask for help BEFORE things have gone downhill. I’m sure it wasn’t an easy request to make, but an entirely legitimate one. They have run a few raffles and fundraisers in an effort to make up some of the cost and that’s legitimate too. That’s what rescues do, they ask for donations. But, since Mendy Tobiano can’t resist taking a shot at any rescue and this one happened to have the unmitigated gall to rescue her good buddy, Dorothy Robertson’s hoard, she has decided to carve them up publically. Nevermind the fact that the only ones that pay the price will be the horses, what PSA have you ever met really ever takes something like that into consideration? Now the self-important heifer is telling people to call the Nevada Attorney General and have the horses removed from the rescue and auctioned off. I can’t even make this crap up. The same person that whines and cries about personal property and that anybody dares to look at her horses or call her on her neglect, now wants to have that done to another person that there is NO evidence that there has ever been neglect. Right on cue, Big D, who must be freshly out of jail, chimes in with this:
“Pointing out that the rescue involved claims she’s taken not one dime (so what were the donations and chip-in and paypal account payments used for? as well as the reportedly donated vet and farrier services?) but has spent $35,000 to “rehab” these horses…..photos showing horses in some cases to have been in better condition when taken than in the “after” shots taken by NNER and others in unchanged condition. There is a ton of stuff going on behind the scenes in this case…some of which may involve federal agencies.”
Lord, give me strength! By now, anybody that cares to have seen the pictures of the wretched condition those horses were in when they were seized. We have all seen Big D’s past convictions of doing this very thing two other times in the past. She truly needs to STFU and go collect carpet fleas or something. Apparently Mendy Tobiano and Big D do not get the difference between asking for help BEFORE things get bad and just flat-out neglecting your animals while you continue to park your ass online 24/7 and fill your gullets with burgers and Doritos. For the rest of you that are genuine and concerned, you can check in with NNER on their Facebook page as they are running an online auction with several very nice items as well as having some really nice horses up for adoption. My suggestion to the PSA assholes is to either step up or shut up. You especially have no business commenting on the condition of anybody’s animals when yours look like this:
Now that we have recapped the asshattery from the usual suspects, I thought it would be useful to reiterate the `why’s of this blog. I don’t pretend to be the voice for anybody but myself. There are lots of anti-slaughter blogs out there and many of them go into far more detail than I do on any given issue. What bothers me is that people like Slaughterhouse Sue, Mendy Tobiano and all the other band of idiots are not shy about twisting what people have said and spreading their lies far and wide. Anybody that is on the fence on the slaughter issue can stumble across their ramblings and it would really be a shame for somebody to make up their mind based on propaganda and flat-out lies. Since I’ve started naming and shaming the loudest ones, many of them have taken their nonsensical ramblings private where there is no danger of an `innocent’ party being swayed by their crap. Horse Farts imploded and went secret, Mendy Tobiano rarely pokes her nose out in public other than her ridiculous blog that very few people read anyhow. Now, we have finally driven the United Horsemen to close their doors to onlookers and they won’t have to stumble across their crap either. If we can have a few laughs along the way while most of us really are working hard to end the threat of slaughter, I think that’s great too. Occasionally, we have the opportunity to make a real difference by getting the word out on an important issue and that’s a bonus. My inbox is full of things that need to be addressed in the coming weeks. I will get to all of it as time allows and hopefully we’ll have some updates on the River Ridge Farm situation this week too. If this language I choose to use or the topics I decide to discuss offends anybody, they always have the option of not coming here and reading. I suggest that the PSAs that love to follow this blog and whine about how I portray them grow thicker skin in the coming weeks because there are no changes planned as to what I write and how I choose to express myself. Happy Hump Day People!
