The Thing Under the Rock Speaks


(Before you start, I want to apologize for ruining your day by placing this before you. Perhaps you might consider this a humor piece, but it isn’t. This is the way the slaughter activists actually think. What I find interesting is how Donk plays with facts, and how he is foaming at the mouth over the wild horses. Only a small portion of DD’s insanity is printed here. If you want to waste your time and read the full article – CLICK HERE – Jerry)

Donk scarfs it down before announcing how America needs to think.

Anti-slaughter activists horse around with the truth

For the Capital Press

The discovery of horse meat in European products labeled otherwise has touched off a flurry of global reaction and over-reaction.

While animal rights groups frantically maneuvered the story in support of their effort to ban human consumption of horses, a more significant effect of the publicity and inevitable jokes — Do we have to worry about sea horse meat in Fish McBites? — has been to reduce the shudder factor surrounding horse as a menu choice.

If a horse is unwanted and out of options, why not humanely repurpose it as a protein source? Suddenly, this notion appears less cringeworthy, if not downright palatable.

Since horse meat galloped into the headlines, curiosity-seekers have driven sales of 100 percent horse burgers at a pair of London pubs, The Lord Nelson and The Three Compasses, through the roof. One establishment offers patties in a range of theme-named portions, from the bite-sized 2-ounce “Shetland” to the hearty “Triple Trojan.” They’re served with a variety of toppings, including grilled onions, black pepper mayonnaise, fried egg, brie and jalapenos.

Embracing America’s equines both as a potential entrée and a beloved partner for work or recreation is a reasonable and well-rounded view that the animal rights movement desperately wants to offset. Opponents of horse processing insist we can’t love horses and eat them, yet the only support for this opinion is rooted in cultural bias and emotion.

Heartfelt affection aside, we need options for our country’s excess horse population, both domestic and feral. Consider that the wild horse herds on U.S. public land double in size approximately every four years, and according to the Bureau of Land Management, the wild population already exceeds available resources by 11,000 animals. The BLM spent more than $72 million on these horses last year, and the majority of that, $43 million, was the cost to care for the 50,717 wild horses in captivity.

MORE or LESS – It all depends on how you think

    Oh please! How can people buy in to this nonsense? While you are enjoying your “Shetland” burger from the US think about the chemicals that aren’t for human consumption that are in that meal. Too many horses? Then why is there no “birth control”? Unwanted? I have a pasture with horses labeled throw away and unwanted. Hmmm, the little one people asked “what’s he good for” saved my life. He and the mare saved from the slaughter house help out moving cattle, without being trained to do so. The 40+ pony is adored and gives us reason to smile. Pedigrees didn’t keep them from harm. They didn’t deserve to suffer from human failures. We are blessed to have them. They are much loved and could not be purchased for any amount. I doubt the eater of the horse burger could understand or will ever want to experience the pleasure of really knowing a horse.

    This man is the narcisstic leader of a cult organized to causechaos. He has no good argument to kll horses except it is fuel for his ability to manipulate. Would someone please send him the book called, “The Emperor’s Clothes?”

    With a global overpopulation (human), poverty, depleted resources, dying oceans and hot climate, the solution in not in the horse, but the humans. Humans are responsible for global warming, not horses/burros. I question the Catholic position on family planning; the time for a ten child family went away long ago.

    Captive horses should be released to the lands that the BLM is allowing cattle farmers to use (free of charge). Cows outnumber horses 50 to 1 according to Anne with Protect Mustangs Org.

    Perhaps David A. Duquette should try a feast of Soylent Green; humans are plentiful, horses few. I’ll remain vegetarian and he just makes me feel ill.

      Yes, Linda. According to John Robbins (heir of the Baskin-Robbins company) who started writing back in 1987, “The livestock population of the United States today consumes enough grain and soybeans to feed over five times the entire human population of the country. We feed these animals over 80% of the corn we grow, and over 95% of the oats.” (Diet for a New America, p.326).

      My husband, an ag. instructor, says that it takes 10 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of animal flesh. I have also read the ratio is closer to 16-1. That is a lot of waste in the food supply. Now Protect Mustangs Org. says there are 50 cows to each horse. Clearly the insane demand for beef is a major problem for the horse, who stands to be either eliminated for more grazing, or also breed for another “taste treat.”

      The environmental effects to our air, groundwater, and soil from feedlots and slaughterhouses is well documented. Adding another species, the horse, to this unnecessary cruelty is madness.

      People need to do their research, become healthy, and not just continue to eat like the Zombies like Duquette and his types is depending upon. Learn about the amount of protein people REALLY need, why Americans are not only so fat, but increasingly disease prone. Either learn what is in processed foods, or slaughter happy droolers like Duquette will win over more converts to his unholy design to have Americans eating horse.

    Horses are not a sorce of food, should not be eaten, they played a very important part of getting the wild west tame, work force, play time, ranch hands, show animals, pets, and even seeing eye mimi’s are in the working force of today. Yes we need to handle the horsess and kekep them in numbers, but nature should handle the rest, for years many years the wild horses , ate, mated, lived, & died in the wild, mother nature took care of them both good and bad. Alaughter is about the horrible , terrible treatment of the animals, nothing alive should be treated the way they are, cut up alive, baies being cut out of mothers and thrown on the floor to die, llittle babies going to slaughter, coem on America wake up this is really happening. The truth adn reality of it is shocking and not humane.

    Did David A. Duquette (initials D.A.D.) actually write this article himself? I very much doubt it.

    Thus, not only are the headline and the entire story false, but even the byline is bogus.

    (And, by the way, he is no D.A.D. I would want to be the child of, nor does he represent, in his horse-related thoughts, words, and deeds, the loving Father of all that is good and true and eternal.)

    I’m so tired of this idiot’s made-up lies and that anyone is even giving him a forum for spouting them. He has all his facts wrong…every single one…and as LNorman said above, no mention is being made about the health risks of slaughtered horses. I am convinced he is absolutely mentally sick. Anyone that can actually say Embracing America’s equines both as a potential entrée and a beloved partner for work or recreation is a reasonable and well-rounded view” is clearly unbalanced. He refuses to see the facts and read the headlines and instead only believes what he likes to play out in his very tiny brain. Anyone who loves their horse would never even consider slaughter as an option, or their horse as a meal.

    Maybe we can repurpose David A. Duquette could be repurposed as meat.
