NM Slaughterhouse Whines about Obama


June 6, 2013

"I think this is the captivating volt, or something like that."

“I think this is the captivating volt, or something like that.”

Participating in the new America pastime, the attorneys for Valley Meat Company started waving the “Blame Obama” flag today. After crying, holding their breath and stomping their feet, the argument that it is all Obama’s fault seems like the best method, certain to draw attention away from such piddle-poop problems such as the Oklahoma tornados, the war in Syria, the struggling economic recovery and 10 year old girls wanting a lung transplant. I mean, after all, we’re talking about real men wanting to kill horses and being hindered by the likes of the USDA. Gad, what is the world coming to!

In order to assist you, the public, in understanding the magnitude of this problem, I ask you to read, “Horse slaughterhouse accuses USDA of IRS tactics.” Within that article, you will be exposed to facts as only the pro-slaughter element can present, such as, “Should somebody be looking into whether or not there is direction from the White House to use/abuse USDA/EPA authority with regard to Valley Meat because they are on the other side of a political issue from the president?”

Shocking. Horse slaughter is an ultra-conservative activity? I truly had no idea. We need to get a

Ultra-conservative employee wants to get back to his ultra-conservative work.

Ultra-conservative employee wants to get back to his ultra-conservative work.

Congressional Investigation started as soon as possible. I’m sure there are a few Reps hanging around the House that haven’t been appointed to another Congressional Committee to investigate all the other stuff the Obama administration is doing wrong.

This one little statement kinda’ shows what happens when you listen to the horse-killing conservatives – “The issue has divided horse rescue and animal welfare groups, ranchers, politicians and Indian tribes about what is the most humane way to deal with the country’s horse overpopulation and the rising number of neglected and starving horses as the West deals with persistent drought.”

Should I bring it to anyone’s attention that “horse overpopulation and the rising number of neglected and starving horses” is not a fact but part of the pro-slaughter propaganda? Or that the horse slaughter industry is NOT a service, but a profit driven corporation that sells the finished product to EU and Asian companies so they can stuff it into their hot dogs and fish sticks?

Nah, I just can’t do it. The horse slaughter folks are so pure of heart and those that disagree with them are so evil and deceptive that I can’t throw dirt on their picnic. After all, I’m doing my best to give you a fair and balanced analysis.

    You lost me as a supporter when you stared that crap about conservatives. There is no need to be that way! Please just report the facts and don’t make horse slaughter a LIBERAL or CONSERVATIVE issue.I hate horse slaughter and to bash any political party is only going to make this organization look STUPID!That article was like reading the National Enquirer. Please just the facts not bias.

      This is not Jerry’s bias. De Los Santo’s attorney, Blair Dunn, is the one raising the partisan flag in a desperate effort to force NM and the country into horse slaughter. Those are the facts.

      This unscrupulous attorney (my opinion) stands to profit financially by keeping any controversy going that is divisive. De Los Santos is too dumb to realize that he is going to pay fees that will bankrupt him. We, however, should be able to see through this smokescreen and not play into their little traps. The 80% needs to stay united!

      It is not a political issue. It is a racket to cash in from those who call themselves conservative. (Well, in fact any political stuff is actually a swindle to rake in from somebody else).

      Think about it… what defines conservative, and what defines liberal? It’s pointless. After all, politics is just the art of making people believe your personal gain is actually their own best interest…

    …and I’m whining about convicted felons even being considered by USDA for approval to do something that 80% of Americans strongly oppose…USDA could have disapproved this application long ago on the basis of Santos lying on his application. So why didn’t they?

    Really, like this is something that just happen during the Obama term. This has been going on for many, many years. During all the presidents terms. This issues starts with the horse breeders. Over breeding is a huge issue, especially in the racing industry. The Jockey Club assisted in controling this issue. They started charging an extra fee, when registering horse’s to the Jockey Club. That fee is over $300 dollars. It’s to discourage largebreeding amounts. Plus, that money will be used to assist these horse’s once there done with their racing careers. The money sponsers retirement organization for race horse’s. Sadly, there isn’t any home enough to save these animals. Slaughter is the only way to control the large numbers. The abuse in the slaughter house’s is disgusting.They have no respect of the life their about to take. These animals are exposed to torture and abuse.This is the real issue and that is what has to be changed.

    Thanks, Jerry. Like much of Faux “news”, there’s too many made up scandals, a waste of my taxpayer money (yes, I’m Liberal and I DO pay taxes!!), waste of Congress time and energy, when they need to create jobs and fix the US infrastructure.

    Seems the independent panel has made a big splash, may be not the way it wanted too. the abuse in the slaughter houses is a biggie, the fact that so many just want to kill is another, not try and fix the problem. We need attention to the program that is not working and causing so much money to be spent that should not be, these animals need a fare shake for a change.

    MADashellCOWGIRL….please…here isn’t the place to chastise anyone over a political opinion….much less a person that is fighting with every once of goodness in his body. Jerry was mocking that Blair Dunn…please read the whole article. plus remember…we all have our own opinions about politics…and its our American right to have them. so….no matter what anyone says about any politician…don’t get angry, its their right, just stay with the subject and think of it as …”well, its their opinion and not mine”. no matter who says what. you will feel a lot better and so will all of us.
    huggs….and have a better day.

    To answer Lisa’s question. the USDA was sued by Valley Meat because their application had not been approved (even then blaming the Obama Administration for dragging things out) and the Judge sided with Valley Meat. USDA was forced to go forward under the instruction of the Judge… Just as judicial instructions has helped WHE in their suits against BLM. I’m still believing that they will never open.. Am I just hopelessly hopeful?

    The article does indeed say exactly what you just said DUNN the lawyer said it babbleing along with his whinning , WOW he really is quite a gem isn’t her!!! SO professional…

    I just wish this was a done deal, WHAT in H-LL are the waiting for to pass 1094, it has not even moved, I feel our politicians are playing with fire, and if they don’t put this out NOW, they all will be some sorry with the outcome in the future, it’s obvious isn’t from past history, MY GOODNESS are we going to repeat past mistakes and do it again, boy that is some smart just wicked smart!!!! I pray with all my heart horse slaughter will end finally!!

    I have to question the maturity level of both The Butcher and The Lawyer:

    First off, no one in the state, with the exception of The Butcher (and by extension, his potential employees) and The Lawyer, want a facility anywhere NEAR Anywhere. Not the citizenry, not the governor, not no one.

    Then, there’s the whole “F**K You, Advocates!” YouTube fool and his association with the company – a ringing endorsement if EVER there was one.

    And then, the Lawsuit. Gonna sue the USDA and everybody who are keeping The Butcher from his trade of choice and the oodles of moolah to be made from the misery and misfortune of others…except, like the legislature in Oklahoma, you have to wonder – where ya gonna sell the carcasses? Folks across the Pond got their OWN issues with sneaky criminals sneakin’ horse flesh in where it isn’t wanted. Canada is having issues, and how popular is horse meat as a dietary staple in Mexico? Don’t you need a MARKET for a product in order to make money?

    I think it’s kinda cute, a couple of grown men throwing genuine hissie fits ’cause everybody’s MEAN. However, The Lawyer troubles me. This is the Golden Age of Litigation, and you can sue anyone for anything.

    So I have an idea: Let’s ALL get us a lawyer and sue Wall Street back to the Stone Age for loss of income, loss of housing, loss of retirement and anything else we can think of. It could not be any more ridiculous than the comedy team of De Los Santos & Dunn.

    MONEY, follow the money and we will see why so many want horse slaughter to start again in the US. From the to cheap to pay to have all their less than prefect horses euthanized and need a trash can (horse slaughter plant) in the states to the AQHA who do not want a drop in breeding and foal registration (which they are so proud of). I say I will not pay taxes to support USDA inspection of horse meat. We don’t eat it so why should be pay our hard earn money to make a few people rich?

    Terra, you are so right. Money is all they can think about. Don’t care about ones health when you know the toxic blood will have to go somewhere such as our waters or land and eventually in our food. Or do they care the suffering the horse would go through slaughtering vs.euthanising? Of course not. Taxpayers, don’t allow your money wasted to support the USDA inspection. Better going to schools, job training,not killing.
