Obviously, I have gotten away from some of our regular features lately. It’s not due to lack of response from readers, but rather my own up and down schedule. I guess I have commitment issues or something as it’s been nice to not be tied to writing about specific things on specific days and just let things roll as they come up. However, I’m feeling nostalgic today and I thought it might be fun to dust off one of your favorite features and roll out another edition of Point and Laugh Friday! Some of our regulars have been ominously quiet this week, while others have been in rare form. I guess that’s what keeps things interesting for the rest of us though and it’s always nice to take a little break from the seriousness of the issue and have a few giggles. This week will be brought to you by the letter `I’ for `ignoramus’.
I always like to kick things off with the spokesmodel for healthy eating and horse hating, Slaughterhouse Sue. I’m sorry to report that ole Suey has been eerily quiet on the slaughter front this week. At first I thought she was merely confused at which organization she is using to push her own agenda. I mean, it HAS to be confusing for her Bute and animal fat laden brain to remember them all. Unified Equine? Wyoming Meats? United Horseturds? International Equine Business ASSociation? Those are just the recent ones. Sadly, as is usually the case when she goes to ground, I fear ole Suey is up to something besides her usual buffoonery. According to an article that came out over the past few days, Suey is `connected’ to the proposed slaughter-house in Missouri that is expected to receive their grant of inspection any day now (http://www.thehorse.com/articles/32166/iowa-plant-to-start-horse-processing?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=welfare-industry&utm_campaign=07-11-2013). Even stranger, is the fact she has `declined to comment’ on these new slaughter plants. Slaughterhouse Suey passing up an opportunity to expound on the health benefits and prestige of gobbling up companion animals is almost unthinkable. The only thing she loves more than saturated fats is talking about eating her way through the equine population. She did tip her hand a bit when she implored her brain-dead minions to harass Missouri Gov. Nixon into supporting the new facility in that state. (http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/urge-missouri-governor-nixon-to-support-the-us-horse-industry.html?fb_action_ids=10200799676586981&fb_action_types=og.recommends&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582). So far only 208 horse haters have managed to figure out how to click on the right button. It’s likely difficult for them when they need one forefinger to type and the other to pick their noses, so hopefully mama Suey will cut them some slack. Stay tuned, I have a feeling we are soon to hear a whole bunch from the head slaughterphile in the coming days…
Moving right along to the pair of ankles that are normally dangling out of Slaughterhouse Suey’s expansive ass; let’s touch base with Douchebag Duquette. He hasn’t had a lot to say for himself this week either. I suspect it’s because Puppymill Patterson has been too busy to ghost write for him, so he has mostly stuck to posting up action alerts and links. The one he is pimping the hardest actually links through to Puppymill’s Cavalry Group and it is a form letter urging the President and Congress to push the slaughter thing through (http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Action-Needed-.html?soid=1112812195452&aid=zKWnXhFrbxE). D-bag is very proud that they have over 4600 letters sent so far. I’m kind of amused. If you click the link and end up at a propaganda page featuring a picture of a sad and skinny horse. Exactly the kind of horse that won’t be slaughtered for food and is easier found turned loose near a border crossing where he was likely rejected for slaughter. Anyhow, plug in your zip code and you end up with a form letter that will be auto-sent to the president and your state reps. The awesome part is that you can edit the letter and make it be about supporting the ban on slaughter. That’s what I did and a few other of my anti friends. It’s very kind of them to make that so easy for us, so don’t hesitate to use it. Sorry D-bag, your numbers might be just a little bit `off’ as far as supporting your murderous mission.
I have a confession to make. I’m kinda getting bored with Holy Mother Theresa’s hypocrisy. It never ceases to amaze me that she manages to walk around spouting her hate speech without getting her ass kicked on a regular basis. It seriously goes far beyond your run of the mill ignorance that our `normal’ PSAs display. Now, even though I’ve been accused of being an `Obama lover’ I’ve never really discussed my political leanings at any length on this blog. The slaughter issue is pretty much a bipartisan issue at this point which I personally find encouraging. I also don’t usually like talking about other hot button issues mainly because it never leads to warm fuzzies no matter how you slice it. However, this is where the hypocrisy of Holy Theresa comes in. It would seem that Holy Theresa will shriek, wail and moan about people taking away her right to torture and slaughter horses, but she would like to tell y’all what to do with your wombs. She does seem to be fine with the concept of aborting fetuses with `abnormalities’ though. I’m going to restrain myself from going for the obvious zinger here and just say that it’s really ok not to spout off all your hateful beliefs so publically all the time. Other than that, the holy one is busy trying to peddle her dink homebreds at inflated prices and hosting constitutional studies. I, for one, am looking very forward to her election campaign next year as I’m always all about the comedy.
One slaughterphile that almost never disappoints us is none other than Puppymill Patterson. She barely takes time off from her animal hating to rinse out her granny panties lately. I guess with the general population finally being sick and tired of being confronted with the cruelty and abuse of all creatures great and small for no other reason than entertainment and money, it keeps her hopping. I think it’s a sad state of affairs that we have to legislate common decency, but then again I look on the straightening iron for my hair and it says `not for internal use’ on it. People really are that stupid apparently…..Anyhow, as I have stated ad nauseam, Puppymill represents a small pocket of assholes that fight for their right to abuse and mistreat animals at all costs. She actually makes a living doing this and she doesn’t confine herself to her home state. Her biggest outrage this week is getting Senate Bill 6 in Oregon stopped (http://gov.oregonlive.com/bill/2013/SB6/). Essentially, Senate Bill 6 seeks to: ” Increase punishment for the animal neglect in first degree to maximum of five years’ imprisonment, $125,000 fine, or both, for the repeat animal neglect offenders, neglect that occurs in the presence of a minor child or animal neglect offenses involving 10 or more animals”. The very fact that people like Puppymill oppose these sorts of laws is exactly the problem we have on the slaughter front right now. They accuse of us of having done nothing in the last six years to make things better, yet they fight us at every turn when attempts are made to address abuse and neglect. Really, aside from slaughter, what would they have us do? Obviously, telling people it’s a bad idea to mistreat and neglect animals isn’t working. I honestly don’t see how slaughtering the evidence will prevent it from happening either. Make no mistake that Puppymill is still hot on the case of protecting your rights to sore horses, run puppy mills, and otherwise mistreat animals for your own personal profit and pleasure, but this has been her biggest hissy fit this week. Or at least it has aside from sniping at Wayne Pacelle because he had the unmitigated gall to wear a plaid shirt or something like that. The good news is that Senate Bill 6 has passed the House and should be signed into law fairly soon. Way to go Oregon!
I have to share that I spent a lovely afternoon painting a pudgy painted pony on the side of my barn this week. It happens to have a red slash through it and it’s right next to the symbol for Horse Farts and the original United Horseturd logo. Yes folks, our angry, pudgy pony has pulled up stakes and axed the blog on her website. At least for the time being we no longer have to worry about anybody stumbling across her non-sensical ramblings and moral outrage. Yes, the message board still exists, but you have to register and quite frankly, I don’t care enough to do that and apparently not many other people do either. I do support her right to talk to her alternate personalities and be ignorant in the privacy of her own bat cave, so I don’t feel the need to address anything she says as long as she isn’t spewing propaganda in public. She is still a very dedicated reader of this blog, but for the time being, we can slap her on the ass and kick her out to pasture while we move on to more important matters. Ta-ta for now, Mendy Tobiano, it’s been real, but it hasn’t been real nice….
I’m going to have to apologize in advance to the regular readers of this blog, because I have a feeling this next section is going to cause some outrage and comment bombs. At least it will, if the individual in question manages to circumnavigate her ban again. She and her dipshit mother are the only two people that have ever been banned from commenting because there is only so much idiocy I’m prepared to address and they seem to have endless amounts of time to comment bomb. Yes dear readers, I’m talking about Daffy. I usually loathe to even acknowledge Dippy Daffy, but she’s found a new platform and let’s face it, she’s so dumb it’s funny at times. When we last heard from her, she was struggling through some college course on medical transcription despite admitting to dyslexia. Since that time she has revised her resume to include being a vet tech, equine massage therapist, and horse husbandry expert. She gets a LOT done for somebody that is also breeder, barrel racer, and slaughter expert. She can actually plump up her resume all she wants as far as I’m concerned, but what I do take exception to is when she outright lies about this blog. Seems Daffy is a bit pissed and has been reading up a storm over here. She truly hates it when other people post links to this blog and does her level best to discourage people from reading. She hates it so much she made up this whopper today:
“THE TRUTH!!!!!! oh ok how is this truth.. OH LOOK its daffy and her lame horse.. YEP lets pry on a CHILD riding a horse.. OH yea she did just that.. posted my video that showed NOTHING BUT MY 2 YR OLD DAUGHTER…actually she was sent an email to remove it and she did in a hurry. She has bashed more then one pro.. Like andi harmon about her mustang rescue that is more then ligit,, their comments are saying she is rescueing them to slaughter them.. which is a big fat lie”
Actually, I did no such thing. Daffy, herself, posted a video of her three-legged lame horse on a public site and I merely provided a link to it. The blog in question is right here: (https://shedrowconfessions.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/its-point-and-laugh-friday-again/). If you scroll down about half way, you’ll see the commentary on the video, with quotes from Daffy saying how proud she was of it, along with her own PSA buddies telling her how lame that poor horse was. The only person that removed anything was Daffy removing the video from YouTube. I removed nothing. Several months after the fact I did receive a whiny email from her saying she was being harassed or something and asking for me to take down any pictures of her children. I told her I had never posted any pictures of her spawn, which I have not. That was basically all there was ever said about this aside from her lunatic mother post bombing this blog and advising me to look up Daffy under her maiden name to see her `many’ accomplishments as a horse person. I attempted to do so and the only thing that ever came up under any name Daffy has used is her arrest records for passing bad checks. Oops! I have yet to see Daffy add anything worthwhile to conversations nor have I seen anybody other than the dumbest of PSAs take her very seriously. For awhile there, even PSAs were banning her off their boards and carving her up behind closed doors. Hopefully, this will straighten out the latest of her fables and she will learn not to poke the bear.
I think that about covers our major PSA highlights this week. I know of a few new faces that are spoiling for attention on here, but we normally have better things to discuss. They continue to be outraged and threaten to call the FBI on people they think are me. Again, I do apologize to the antis that are accused of being me. They haven’t gotten it right yet and I don’t suppose they ever will. This blog isn’t about me and it never has been. I merely comment on what they put out there in public and will continue to do so as long as it amuses me; just the same way I endorse their right to an opinion on this blog. Make no mistake that I will set the record straight when their whoppers get too far out of line *cough*daffy*cough* There is no such thing as bad publicity after all 😉 After the rest of you are done with pointing, laughing, tearing your hair out, or whatever recapping the antics of these asstards inspires you to do, I hope you take the time to continue to make calls and get the word out to support the SAFE Act. Have a great weekend!
