This has certainly been a busy week in the land of the profoundly ignorant and stupid. With the return to the internet of Slaughterhouse Sue and Douchebag Duquette becoming the latest PSA blogger, it’s been tough to keep up with all the doings of the PSAs. They have been bringing the crazy like never before and it has provided endless entertainment and frustration for the rest of us. This week even saw the brief return of some old favorites and our usual suspects were in great form too. We have a lot to cover this week, so let’s get rolling with `Point and Laugh Friday’, brought to you by the letter `S’ for STFU.
I guess we’ll kick off the proceedings by checking in with the moronic matriarch of the PSAs, Slaughterhouse Sue. Still offering no rebuttal or explanation for the Missouri lies, she returned to the loving embrace of her fellow online horse haters. Ole Suey has been burning up her keyboard looking for articles and linking them to the UH like a woman possessed. Maybe she is just going through Bute withdrawals. Unfortunately for Suey, the articles came from largely obscure and questionable sources and were met with apathy from her supporters. I’m still having some trouble with why an online tech magazine would run an editorial about horse slaughter. It’s not a big deal since it has become apparent that the majority of the PSAs are quite unable to put down their Doritos and get off Facebook long enough to make any comments or support their stance. No worries, there were plenty of anti-slaughter people willing to step up and set the record straight with *gasp* facts. Way to go, guys!
As we covered earlier, Suey’s next mission was to pull out all the stops and begin a petition to the USDA demanding they begin inspections RIGHT NOW. She joined forces with the other IEBA buttholes, Bill `Maggot’ desBarres and Olivier `Moneybags’ Kemseke, to voice their `concern’ about the suffering of American horses among other things. She further went on to mention how much worse these horses suffered when they were shipped out of country. Not sure why Maggot desBarres, being from Canada, felt the need to shoot himself in the foot like that, but maybe Moneybags is lining his pockets too. You would think it had already been a busy week for Ole Suey, but she wasn’t done yet. She next applauded and drooled all over Crazyass Steve King from Iowa, who basically hates all animals as much as he hates Wayne Pacelle. Just to recap, Crazyass King is in support of dog fighting, puppy mills and the cruel and inhumane treatment of food production animals. Don’t worry, he hates gays and people who use birth control too,so he’s basically an equal opportunity hater. He’s actually a pretty good fit with the PSAs. I bet most of them have his picture on their bed side table, right next to their bible, beer and shotgun.
Because this week was Holy Theresa’s turn to have her head parked the furthest up Ole Suey’s ass, that basically left Douchebag Duquette unsupervised yet again. Apparently he got tired of cultivating his Amish style goatee and decided to take up blogging. I surmise he is being poorly assisted with this spelling and grammar as his two posts have not been as peppered with profanities and gibberish like we have come to expect from him. Still, he kicked things off D-bag style by comparing the UH to `Samson and Goliath’ and giving himself a virtual reach around for a job well done. His next blog entry was the one that truly pissed off anybody that cares about the welfare of horses and is in possession of a firing synapse. It laid out the plans for the UH’s Equine Rescue and Rejuvenation Program and how amazingly wonderful it’s going to be for horses to participate. Because of all the poor and starving people who have to give their horses up to slaughter, D-bag and company are going to allow people donate the to the UH and `maybe’ give them a tax receipt. Maybe they’ll sell the horses and keep the cash or maybe they’ll slaughter them. Either way, the original owner of the horses do not get any money. Naturally, the UH brain-dead think this is incredibly awesome….
Everybody’s favorite multiple personality, Mendy Tobiano had a strange week indeed. Apparently, somebody called her horses skinny again which kicked off a series of rants and bizarre blog postings. She is now using make-believe horses and paintings to demonstrate why her horses aren’t starving to death. While none of the Hollywood horses she used as examples were actually skinny, she continued on with her ranting and hoof stomping and failed to see the difference in her poor beasts. She also got super pissed about somebody calling her trailer trash and, true to form, decided to counter that by a round of over-sharing, including pictures of her `not a trailer’ abode. The sad part about that is we are supposed to be impressed that it is an 1800’s house and forget that she has posted many times about not having a working stove, sharing the home with a burn-out handyman and other white trash problems. At the end of the day, who cares? We all know that trailer trash is an attitude above all else, so if the hooker shoes fit…..With her increasingly bizarre behavior and hostility, the NT blog is becoming less relevant by the day. She is currently trying to dump one of her one-eyed Mustangs that she is unable to train and I have to wonder if it has anything to do with this old blog entry: http://ballengertraining.blogspot.ca/2012/01/again-it-has-been-quite-some-time-since.html
A few weeks ago, this blog and a few other Facebook pages posted about a PSA that had a horse with ring bone. She was upset about having to Bute him and waste his meat and entertained the romantic notion of taking him to slaughter personally. She didn’t want him to go to waste and contaminate the ground water by chemically euthanizing him.
“am incredibly depressed… after my chat with the farrier I know my horse wont have much time left. Depending on the amount of ringbone the horse has he will have a better idea of how long I will have with him before hes too uncomfortable and we will have to put him down. Now I dont believe in euth drugs, especially not on a horse, and I prefer him to go to good use. Since I am so close to canada I wonder if there is a way I can contact them and bring him up myself to avoid extra stress and pain. Even be there at the moment he dies if they would allow it. I have to make a trip this fall to Canada anyways… anyone have ideas on who I can talk to?”
Anyhow, it seems that the poor horse has made that trip to Canada after all but she didn’t actually go with him or make sure he was processed right away and hugged and kissed. I wonder if she realizes that the poor horse is likely not even dead yet and standing in a feedlot getting beat up by other horses while he awaits his date in the death chamber. This may be one of the more cruel acts a PSA has ever bragged about. Sure hope she didn’t fudge on his EID papers and say he hadn’t been Buted….I am sickened…
“I reposted with my thoughts. It made me very, very angry. My horse made a 30 hour long drive to canada because of where feedlots are located. If they were open in the u.s. it wouldnt be like that! Our horses suffer longer because of these morons. Like to know how they can say every horse gets bute someday. BULLSHIT! Only used it once ever on a horse and owned them since I was 12. Everything has a withdrawl period, even the worst medications that are the most dangerous!”
Daffy has made a tentative return to public posting and is as illiterate and nuts as always. She seems to be trying to gain favor from her UH buddies so she can regain admittance into their inner sanctum once again. I guess talking to herself and her mother on a private page is not nearly stimulating enough for her. Daffy kept busy being the resident `expert’ at the UH Facebook page and expounding on her vast knowledge of Bute, breeding and anything else anybody cared to comment on. She’s still an avid reader of this blog. Perhaps I will let her do a guest posting here so she can teach us all to ride really well liker her….
As we know, the PSAs love nothing better than to swarm rescues and unsuspecting strangers online. This week was no different. They have been amusing themselves with some pretty hilarious videos from self-proclaimed `horse expert’ Sarah Stetner. To be fair, this person is a moron for sure. When you get past the cringing at the things she says and does , you kind of sit there in disbelief that anybody could be so stupid. I almost can’t believe these videos are meant to be serious. Check them out. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LD8023BK0cA&feature=relmfu) The problem is, that the PSAs became obsessed and found her Facebook page and where she worked. The girl is a vet tech at a small animal clinic. They then decided it would be funny to leave trolling messages on her work’s guest book.
“I double dog dare some one to sign the Vet Clinic’s guestbook and ask about their horse riding expert….”
“I will triple dog dare anyone and with a cherry on top!”
Of course, a few volunteered to go over and bomb the guest book, including last week’s poster PSA, Doris Kelsey. What is NOT cool about any of this is:
a) this is a place of business they are harassing and has nothing to do with the YouTube vidoes Stetner has put up.
b) the guest book appears to be largely used by clients who have had sick pets and pets that were put down.
Really not cool or funny for innocent people that may be grieving the loss of a pet to have to see this asshattery and maliciousness. Thankfully, it appears the comments are held for moderation, so their fuckery was thwarted. The hypocrisy is they are the first ones to screech `foul!’ when they get outed for what the post online.
This week saw some new developments on the slaughter issue. Probably the most damaging one to the PSA mission was the notice that Clenbuterol and Bute was found in sample testings of horse meat that originated in Canada. (https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/rasff-window/portal/index.cfm?event=notificationDetail&NOTIF_REFERENCE=2012.1078) You would think this would be very worrisome to a bunch of people that want to open up slaughter houses…..Nope, they are STILL in denial about it and they STILL don’t know the difference between drug withdrawal times and carcinogens left behind. The concept of `Banned’ escapes them and they have started to sprout their usual conspiracy theories about it all.
“I just want to point something out. EVERY other meat possible is permitted in the EU countries from the US except horse….is it possible, I mean just in the realm of way out there, might be the reason is NOT about BUTE but not wanting to flood the EU countries with the plethora of horses that would. If we blame bute instead of bitching about worrying about US tanking the meat market then no one gets suspicious. After all, the EU is not so stupid as to not notice all the horses being exported into Mexico and Canada which ARE permitted to send horse meat over. Just something for everyone to ponder since I actually sat down and read the EU documents.”
I guess this rocket scientist doesn’t realize that Mexico and Canada are likely going to be in trouble too. The EU will hold everybody’s feet to the fire on their deadline of July 2013 to have a passport system implemented. Now that they have found banned substances in a sample test, they will be increasing the frequency of testing. If you need a reminder on how all that works you can review it here: (https://shedrowconfessions.wordpress.com/2012/07/12/anybody-want-a-bute-burger/)
I feel like I haven’t recapped this week properly with all that has gone on. With Slaughterhouse Suey returning, Douchebag Duquette blogging and all the general fuckery we are used to, it was almost overwhelming to keep up with it all. Have no fear, we have much to look forward to in the coming days, including our Sunday PSA feature where we get to name and shame the horse eaters. Mostly, I think I’m still so pissed off about the UH’s proposed Rescue and Rejuvenation Program, I find very little they do all that funny right now. Several important deadlines are looming and we cannot afford complacency. There is a lot to work to do and a lot of people to educate. I’m going to leave you with a comment that was left on the previous posting here. Please do what you are comfortable with. As always, leave me a message in the comments or send an email if you have news or issues you want to see addressed. Keep up the good work, everybody!
“There are lots of things you can do the save horses from slaughter without even leaving your house! Here are three of them:
Join the Adult letter writing campaign. Send letters to be presented to congress and the president. Find details here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/477262352286586/
Get prestamped, addressed post cards from here & hand get them signed at shows, fairs, family dinners- wherever people who are opposed to horse slaughter may be. Find the post cards here: http://nhequinewelfarecouncil.org/Advocacy.html
Pick up the phone and call your congress people. Let them know that you do not want your hard earned tax dollars spent on inspections for a food that will be shipped abroad. Remind them that these inspections will divert funds from food safety programs that have already been slashed. Tell them that the real solution is to support S1176 and HR2966. Here is how to find your congress people.: http://www.contactingthecongress.org/
