Posts Tagged ‘Point and Lauagh Friday’

Well folks, the past few days have been very interesting indeed.  We’ve had pro-slaughter asstard, Tim Sappington showing us how classy and upstanding slaughterphiles are and we appear to be in the midst of a meltdown courtesy of Slaughterhouse Sue.  We also have the usual messed up logic and statements from some of our favorite PSAs.  I’m kinda hoping this all comes to a head within the next few days, because once again I am on the road briefly next week.  So, even though it’s a day early, let’s get out our fingers and do some pointing and laughing.  This week’s edition is brought to you by the letter `H’ for hissy fit.

pnllll

As we always like to do, I thought we’d open up by checking in with Slaughterhouse Sue.  As y’all know, she’s been busy this week laying down the links and losing her shit for all to see.  I’m just going to go ahead and call it a full-scale meltdown at this point.  Yesterday we took a look at her little fit on Tom Vilsack, complete with urging her minions to ” get those flaming pens out, type those smoking letters…WE NEED A DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE THAT WORKS FOR AGRICULTURE–AND THAT INCLUDES THE HORSE BUSINESS–NOT AGAINST US, for Christ’s Sake, People!”  Yup, she just busted out the caplock, so we know how serious she is.  As some of you have pointed out, the angrier Suey gets the more she mistakenly burps out tiny shreds of truth and this week has been no different.  So far she has admitted they can’t match anti slaughter people one for one and that they aren’t after old horses to slaughter, despite the fact she constantly talks about old horses needing a dignified end.  Remember, she thinks slaughter helps horses feel dignified and useful.  She has also called Skye McNeil and `American Hero’ and accused all antis of making false claims.  She had another shit fit today and I’m going to break it down for you here.

“And here you have yet another perfect example of activist spewing baldfaced, undocumented, LIES, and not even being challenged. This has got to be stopped…”

I’m going to state right here and now, that I welcome Suey to come over on this blog or arrange to debate any of us that advocate against slaughter.  We’ve asked for her documentation and facts time and again and other than what she pulls out of her ever-growing ass, she has yet to provide a single thing.

No animal, of any species, processed for food in the U.S. since the days when they had a big, strong, guy with a sledgehammer standing above the knock box in beef plants–and that was a long, long time ago–has been abused the way these activists are alleging horses would be. Ridiculous! Come on media! Do your job! Ask them to document, ask for proof, these people are lying through their teeth and getting away with it. Worse they are swaying public opinion because no one is challenging them!
Yes, come on media!  Do your job!  We’ll be very happy to provide the facts surrounding abuse in the slaughter pipeline.  We are quite happy to provide footage and documentation to any media outlet that requests it.  We’re very happy to share what we’ve learned to get the word out.  Challenge accepted!
Every one of these plants that are seeking to go into business have gone above and beyond the minimum required to ensure that their operations have the right facilities designed with the unique characteristics of horses, they have trained and professional employees who will performing these critical functions, and they have deliberately and conscientiously gone through all of their food safety plans and humane handling plans to make sure that their management will result in the consistent, and humane handling of horses at every step. They are doing this, not just because it is the ethical and moral way to handle animals, which it is, but also because that is how they ensure the highest quality finished product that their customers want.

We just saw the CNN footage of Valley Meats and there has been no modifications for horses that were shown.  This would be the same plant that currently employs Tim Sappington of the horsey snuff flick that has been widely posted the past few days.  He is a fine example of exactly the type of `humane’ workers that will be handling these frightened animals.  Very telling that Suey tells us that they have no ethics or morals, but just want to have better quality meat.  Pretty much says it all, no?

This ain’t rocket science, folks, but it is common sense…something that is sadly lacking in our world today, I am afraid…

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/03/20/us-horse-farms-almost-ready-to-start-slaughtering/

This creature is clearly delusional and I’m afraid there is no cure.  She further went on to rant about how horses are killed:

What does that tell you? It tells you that the bullshit line we keep seeing being spewed by HSUS et al – “horses are difficult to stun and are rarely successful on the first shot, and they are sometimes strung up and dismembered whiles still conscious” – is exactly that…BULLSHIT! And nobody is challenging them or asking them to document and prove their fallacious misinformation. Makes me furious!!!!

She’s so professional!  Actually, yes there is more than enough video footage of horses being shot in the face several times, strung up while conscious and bled out.  Challenge away, we’ll provide you the links.  She also busted the bible out on us all for good measure:

That is, in fact, NOT the case. There was no prohibition on Christians eating horsemeat until Pope Gregory in the Year 1000, in which case the reason was he wanted to keep horses for war, and not have people eating them. The Icelandic people refused to become a Christian nation until they won a special dispensation from the Pope in that year to continue to eat horses, and they do so today. Note–there are NO unwanted starving horses in Iceland, because there is a good use for all of them. Then, please refer to the New Testament and the words of Jesus himself declaring all words clean – Mark 7:19 – for instance. http://www.gotquestions.org/foods.html

You know what else there isn’t a lot of in Iceland?  Horses or people.  (http://www.pferd-und-fleisch.de/Horsemeat/iceland.htm) While we’re talking about the bible, perhaps Suey should take a closer look what they have to say about gluttony…Since Suey is so convinced we all lie and have no documentation of fact to back up our position, I will state officially that any time, any where there are many of us quite happy to have a moderated debate with Suey and we’ll bring the documentation.  I would love to see her documentation to back up her lies.  Let’s make this happen people!  Phone in radio show?  Give me a time and place.  Pick your Anti, Sue…we’ll make it happen.  I’m just not going to do it Jerry Springer style and be in the same room as her because she’ll probably slap me and I bruise easy.

Ok, let’s move right along to the ass barnacles.  Holy Theresa Manzella has basically been creeping around behind closed doors being Suey’s cheerleader and spreading her messages of hate an intolerance at any given chance.  What she hasn’t been doing much of is updating her rescue’s website or actually rescuing any horses.  I am guessing her exotic kitties have enough to eat right now and she’s waiting until slaughter re-opens so she can turn rescues over faster.  Just a guess though.  D-bag has not been as active as in recent weeks, but he’s still been dropping his pearls of wisdom here and there.  Other than getting his rocks off talking about killing wolves, he took the time to once again discuss his rescue/rehab/slaughter emporium he dreams of opening right in his own backyard.  (http://rtfitchauthor.com/2013/03/21/predatory-horse-slaughter-pimp-plans-kill-plant-and-rehab-on-same-site/) (http://www.eastoregonian.com/news/local_news/slaughter-rehab-for-horses-on-same-site/article_4e842b9a-91e2-11e2-b62d-0019bb2963f4.html?success=2) It’s essentially the same thing he’s discussed before and it will come at an estimated cost of $3million.  Yup, the very same organization that can’t come up with a few hundred dollars to refund their cancelled Scummit fees, is going to somehow find millions to start this facility in a place where nobody wants them.  Ladies and gentlemen, this is a brain cell on Bute…

*sigh*  I guess we should touch on the doings of Mendy Tobiano since we’re pointing and laughing.  As I mentioned yesterday, she did a premature victory dance over the pending legislation in Oklahoma that would lift the an on horse slaughter.  The good news is we may have finally managed to partially drive her and her three followers underground as she opened the NT forum so the slaughterphiles have yet another place to discuss what great horse abusers they all are and how mean us Anti people are.  However, one of my favorite brain farts of hers over the past little while was when she used an anonymous guest poster to discuss rescues and slaughter.  She reposted a research paper originally written by Kristine Kobernic, who is the sometime executive director and founder of SOSER aka Save Our Souls Equine Rescue out of Minnesota.  I say `sometime’ because Kristine has stepped down and back up as director at least once over the past few months due to some sort of personal drama.  While SOSER does not officially take a pro or anti slaughter stance, Kristine, herself has admitted to trying horse meat in the past and is a frequent supporter of NT under a pseudonym.  How do I know she is the author behind the research paper (which was poorly written to begin with)?  Because Mendy Tobiano forgot to change all the names in the paper she posted and SOSER is clearly named at least once.  This would also be the same rescue that thinks Angela Marshall, the woman who sent her three-legged lame horse to Canada to be slaughtered rather than put him down, is an acceptable foster placement.  Kristine has also been seen to post in other places that she believes we need to bring back slaughter for at least 10 yrs and then phase it out.  I only mention these things because NT and all the PSAs constantly demand that rescues have transparency.  A big thank you to Mendy Tobiano for putting this rescue back on our radar! In other news NT has informed us that killing and eating horses is really no different from abortion as far as rights go.  Let’s hope she doesn’t suggest we start eating fetuses, but at this point nothing would surprise me.

426521_3355054124009_584988699_n So many people are appropriately shocked and outraged over the Tim Sappington video I posted yesterday.  It has been removed from Youtube, but several groups have saved it.  There is an edited version floating around with a description and the graphic portions removed.  As one of our readers commented on that post, Valley Meats is attempting to disassociate themselves from him and claim he no longer works for them, although this statement came from them earlier today:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
VALLEY MEAT COMPANY, LLC – For further information contact A. Blair Dunn, Esq. at
abdunn@ablairdunn-esq.com

VALLEY MEAT STATEMENT REGARDGING TIM SAPPINGTON

Valley Meat Co. does confirm that Mr. Sappington does work doing maintenance for Valley. We have seen the video showing Mr. Sappington euthanizing a horse for slaughter which we understood he did as was his legal right for his own consumption and in which he did complete the processing for consumption. We agree that his comments were regrettably crass, not
contributing anything to this dialogue so we do not condone his statements, but he was within his lawful rights to slaughter and butcher a horse and he was not acting as an employee of the company in that action. The emotion of the situation is what is most troubling especially since the opposition is now resorting to terrorist tactics by calling in bomb threats and death threats
against our families. And while Mr. Sappington’s personal comments are inappropriate they pale in comparison to threatening to bomb people and kill their families. We respectfully request that the media and the public remember that we are discussing the processing of horses as livestock
and no animal is worth threatening or ending a person’s life.

So there you have it.  Don’t make threats people.  You just play into their hands.  There are legal and effective ways to deal with these poor excuses for human beings.  Make calls and make this go viral.   There have been contacts from media outlets regarding this video and I’m reasonably sure it will get the attention it deserves, if not the sort of attention he was seeking.  Hopefully, that horse’s execution will not have been in vain, but let’s do this properly.  For the record, the horse as not killed cleanly, nor was he bled out. This was not an old or sick horse like they claim they will use and the horse appeared to be quite friendly and quiet.  Certainly not an outlaw.  It was hardly just a good ole boy butchering up some meat.  The manner and place in which this animal was executed would have rendered him useless for consumption for most, but I”m guessing people like Sappington probably eat roadkill as well so no big deal for him.

This brings us to the end of Point and Laugh for this week.  I’m sorry it’s not all that amusing, but right now things just aren’t all that amusing.  We have yet to see Suey address the EU ban on horse meat slaughtered in the US, I’m not holding my breath that we ever will.  As evidenced by the Valley Meat statement above, the PSAs just can’t seem to own their evil or address inconvenient truths.  My offer still stands, I will be most happy to go toe to toe with Slaughterhouse Sue and we’ll bring out the facts and documentation.  I also know of several advocates far more articulate and qualified than I am that would be happy to do the same.  What say you, Suey?

As you all realize, it’s been a fairly serious week in the slaughter wars.  It’s also been a fairly hectic time for me since about Christmas and I have gotten away from some of our regular features that are mostly just for fun.  I know that some of you miss Point and Laugh Friday and Sunday’s PSA because you’ve commented or sent emails.  Do you know who else misses those features?  The PSAs.  While this blog is always quite busy with the views on any given day, those two days spike drastically on any given week.  Believe it or not, those particular posts can be a bit more time-consuming than most, so I haven’t had a lot of time to do them justice at this time of year.  However, I do think we need to laugh and honor our PSA buddies.  They may not be brave enough to comment here much, but they do love their features, so today marks the beginning of a new semi-regular feature for this blog.  In honor of reaching our one hundred thousandth unique viewer this past week,  I bring to you, `Dear Aunt Anti’.  This is where we will answer those burning questions we know our PSAs have and give them a chance to participate by proxy.  Let’s see if you can guess the PSA behind the letters.

Dear Aunt Anti,

 

I am conflicted about horses.  For years I have swindled my living by identifying myself as a trainer and expert.  Because I live in an area that isn’t exactly the hotbed of the horse industry, I have been able to pass myself off as knowledgeable for quite some time even if it meant having to move my hoard on a regular basis to stay one step ahead of the people that I piss off and don’t approve of the condition I keep them in.  Still, because I am bestest buddies with kill buyers and we trade horses back and forth, I have always managed to keep way too many of them on my feed bill, making me a one stop shop, for anybody that had a kid with a horse fantasy that didn’t know better than to go to a real professional.  I managed to get them ribbons by organizing my own horse shows with rules and dress codes that don’t fly anywhere else in the free world.  You could say I created my own private Idaho even. 

 

However, starting a few years ago, people seemed to get wise to my ways and my business dried up.  While I would like to have people believe it was due to the economy, I can admit to you in confidence that it is because I actually spend the majority of my life online looking for validation and reasons to be offended rather than actually learning my craft. How much can you really learn when you already know everything anyhow?  I also  have to admit that I don’t actually like horses very much other than the image I imagine they give me.  Having horses makes me badass and cool in a way I never could be on my own.  So in order to cash in on them,  I decided to become what I could never be in the real world.  An armchair horse expert.  I have spent countless hours reading Wikipedia and The Black Stallion series.  I have taken all I have learned and made those stories my own.  I started my own blog to show how much I know about horses and the industry that so soundly rejected me.  That’s where it all fell apart.  Apparently, there are real horse people that sometimes come online and it was like they could see right through me.  To combat this, I created alter egos to agree with myself and give me compliments.  I even flirted a little with myself because I may as well be sexy online too.  Still, these `horse people’ seemed wise to my ways.  I’m convinced they are parked in that van across the street and they have bugs in my house.  They don’t seem to like me very much, so I found acceptance among the pro slaughter crowd.  They don’t seem to realize I’m a fraud.  All three of them even read my blog and I’m going to cash in on that success by selling them lots of logo crap from Cafe Press.  I’m told I could make up to $20 a month and that’s at least two super sized Big Mac meals!!!!!  My real question is, how can I gain acceptance from real horse people and get them to understand that horses don’t have feelings and are durn good eating?

 

Enviously yours,

Paranoid in the Midwest

Dear Paranoid,

Bless your heart!  You are a whole bunch of issues all wrapped up in a shroud of insecurities!  The short answer to your question is that you will never be accepted by real horse people and neither will  your buddies.  The problem with trying to pass yourself off as an expert is that there will always be people that can see right through you just like the threadbare nylon granny panties you wear every day.  Those are not healthy for your vagina btw.  But I digress…My suggestion would be to pick something more obscure to pretend to know all about.  The problem with attempting to be a horse expert is that at least 80% of  the population really do like them and know more than you and they really take offense when people seek to torture and abuse these wonderful creatures.  You see, they respect the animals as sentient beings and realize that they are no more meant to be on American dinner plates than puppies and kittens.  Sure, we have some immigrant communities that see no problem in eating such things, but we also have immigrant communities that see no problem with arranged marriages and female circumcision.  If you want to do that crap, take it on back to your own country because that doesn’t fly over here.  I can promise you that the horse people do not have you under any kind of surveillance as they are all quite busy looking after their animals on any given day.

 

Because I care about you, I have taken the time to do a little research of my own.  I have found that stamp collecting is probably a great pursuit for you.  Stamps don’t have feelings and they don’t tend to get skinny and sick when you blow all your money tacky manicures and fast food rather than taking care of them.  They don’t eat a thing!  Also, the majority of the American population are not emotionally invested in stamps so they won’t mind when you get angry at your stamps and decide to run them through a paper shredder.  Since stamps are not living things, they don’t have anatomy or even a lot of terminology attached to them so you should be able to pass yourself off as a lifelong expert in no time flat with very few challenges from the online stamp community.  Another bonus is you can never have too many stamps and nobody will call you a hoarder.  You will be known by the much more respectable term of `collector’ and that should help your self-esteem issues as well.  You may even find somebody to flirt with you so you don’t have to do that with yourself.  That kind of thing will make you go crazy and grow hair on your hands!  Please pass this advice onto all your horse eating friends as I think they may be far less angry in the long run.  Nobody likes to wake up and look at a failure in the mirror every day. 

 

Fondly,

Aunt Anti

PS. Thank you for enclosing a picture of you in your former profession.  I guess I won’t bother to tell you why a side pull over a halter and ill-fitting breast collar is a recipe for disaster since you’ve probably already suffered the consequences or at least the poor horse has…

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.

laffnp

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…

531749_266662740130509_1698550430_n

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!
