I have a farm and livestock so you are preaching to the choir. You sound like a more conscietious man than these corporate farmers where the bottom line is all that counts. Still I think that IS THE POINT of allowing horse slaughter again....so that it can be sold for human consumption overseas. Easy gains for some thief at someone elses expense.
That was always a sticking point....for human consumption

Horses are not just livestock to most people.....I consider them companion animals.
and in regards to the chickens they are pumped so full of growth hormones and antibiotics people would be appalled if they knew....of course you would want to eat a free range chicken before a caged one. A local grocery chain sells "naturally raised" chickens at 4.95 / lb but you can buy these caged chicken breast for 1.00/lb....so you see the consumer does decide to pay more to get quality.
Old McDonald is spinning in his grave
Why not euthanize the cow and then move it? How could they process the meat if they use drugs to do it though?
Yes there are horses that need to be slaughtered....lame, crazy & dangerous, but to turn them loose is just irresponsible....it's like dumping dogs and cats. I've had 2 horses put down by a vet. I didn't send them to the slaughter house.
It puts our livestock at risk of being rustled and auctioned off illegally when they use horses for human consumption and that's just a fact because of the higher PROFIT $$$$ I just read about 2 rustlers here locally stealing cows that got prosecuted. Horses would be even easier to steal.
We don't eat horsemeat in the U.S. so why allow it?
Yep Eric...you are right about that. It's all designed to benefit the corporate farms and hurt the local producers....the whole system is skewed to put the family farm out of business. Most small farmers don't cut corners like that.
Take madcow disease....I don't know one local rancher that feeds his cows animal byproducts but that is an example of how unscrupulous it gets if the public is kept in the dark.
No amount of "editing" can fail to reveal the horrors of cattle so sick they can't stand being pushed around by fork lifts. I think it's sad there aren't stronger laws to punish them. Maybe the USDA is just aggravated that they have to at times when the public is outraged by it.
It WAS a free country--- and video taping the industry is not the crime....what they are doing to the animals is. This law will just make us less free. Who wants that? Only criminals.
Grumpy, nothing worse than a wife beater in my book except maybe a child molester. I hate men who beat up women ....they are COWARDS. And another thing, you will never see them get in a fair fight with another man....kinda of like this, taking a gun to a fist fight.
1 year, 1 month ago on Even if George Zimmerman is Guilty, He Should Probably Walk
Heard it on TV....his wife evidentially called police on him before
Reminds me of that Chris Rock routine....cracker ass cracker.
Baloney.... a POLICE dispatcher is trained on exactly what to say in these instances by the POLICE officers. Police don't want any cowboy citizens trying to play policemen because that's how people get killed....case in point....ZIMMERMAN
It's standard procedure....not a law per se but as a neighborhood patrol police don't want any confrontations....just calls. This example is textbook for what can go wrong.
he beats his wife
Zimmerman likes to beat women....therefore a coward. Following someone around to the extent you get out of your truck and confront them is asking for trouble.....and then to be carrying a gun on you too. My opinion is he was looking for trouble and yep he would have gotten his butt whipped without his gun on him. Point is he was told NOT to follow him.
The general thing police tell EVERYBODY is not to confront them yourself. That point you made about the 911 operators not having arrest powers is IRRELEVANT
I have a feeling Zimmerman is guilty and he's just lucky I'm not on his jury. I don't like the fact he was told not to follow and did anyway. I have read some unsavory things about him and his character as well which I hope comes out in this trial. Not that Trayvon was an angel either, but he's the victim in this not Zimmerman.
I have no doubt SOMEBODY saw what actually happened or some security camera did and I will be angry if it comes out later and proves he was guilty after he gets aquitted.

1 year, 1 month ago on How "Gang of Eight" Amnesty Will Destroy America
and you completely ignore the point that insurance costs shot up the minute Obamacare passed....and it's predicted to go up even more.
I've been shopping lately for insurance and every single one I've contacted says it's going up in 2014. Do your homework.
You said it yourself....they would not get subsidies and therefore not be able to afford health insurance....they would fill up our emergency rooms and the cost will be passed on to those of us who do pay for health insurance
That is the way it's been hasn't it. Ever try going to the emergency room? You can't get in most of the time....the waiting room is filled with illegals
Cheap labor subsidized by the tax payers
1986 was supposed to be the last amnesty.....they lied
No president since then has secured the borders and no one ever will if we keep giving amnesty
Zames C....so they clog up our emergency rooms as they do now....and we get stuck with higher health insurance bills
not a solution
Make it illegal to rent to them....to hire them....MANDATORY E VERIFY too....they will deport themselves
yes inexpenisve because the law doesn't require their employers to provide health insurance and pay for their children's schooling.....but NOT INEXPENSIVE FOR TAX PAYERS
has Rush brought up the emergency room abuse to tax payers?
That's the whole reason they are in the way....an excuse to meddle in the M E.
You can't believe they really care about the environment when we could have cars that run on natural gas. Yes it is expensive to convert a car but it's about 50% cheaper to run so we need to start making cars that run on natural gas. This whole green movement is a big hoax.
1 year, 1 month ago on Is Rand Paul Right About Jesus And War?
Don't worry Bob I know they lie....but that is a right wing talking point that we need their oil....we most certainly don't. If we would switch to natural gas for our cars we'd be doing great. Wonder why that conversion hasn't happened? Much cleaner fuel and more abundant.
we spend more than the rest of them combined....it's a fortune pissed away. Meanwhile we are going to have to cut medicare and social security and see our bridges collapsing so we can bomb and rebuild the middle east. You are crazy man.
BobE you should be getting paid for this if you aren't already.
Boy it's going to take a LOT of sock puppets (military & paid fake bloggers) to sell this war in Syria
we sure do have other interests...opium production went up 5000% in Afghanistan after we started occupying it
We are God's army in a way. Spreading truth of the Gospel is our mission.
That's right Homer, who hasn't read George Washington's farewell speech and thought it was one of the BEST speeches ever delivered? BobE needs to read that one.....badly
OK let me rephrase the question....WHAT DO YOU PERSONALLY have to gain from these wars ?
so Grayman I guess by that statement, you don't think we should be supplying tanks, planes, arms, and money to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. Finally something we can agree on.
Smedley Butler is the most eminent authority and one of the most decorated officers of all time. He stopped a coup and possible assassination of one of our presidents by the elite WAR MONGERERS YOU ARE DEFENDING.
No Bob we don't need it. We have plenty and have other sources to buy it from. We don't get the bulk of our oil now from the middle east. IN FACT we are exporting it.
Yep but I'm one of the TAX PAYERS paying for this nonsense. I also have relatives risking their lives for it. POINT IS it doesn't benefit the common citizen at all....it only benefits war profiteers, banking elite, and corporations. You are a sucker if you think otherwise.
Isn't it a shame that out of that whole body of congress that there is only a handful of honorable men?
HAARP makes all conventional weapons obsolete. China, Israel, Russia and the U.S. currently have HAARP technology. All other countries can't compete. Convential warfare is being waged ONLY in order to make PROFIT....and that's all.
How little you know about it....we made a killing on supplying arms before we entered the war. Americans didn't want to enter the war. Germany declared war on the US for doing it...,.we had to enter it then. We were sinking their ships even before war was declared on us.
Pearl Harbor was a false flag....allowed to happen. Meanwhile Prescott Bush and others here were laundering money for the Nazis & getting rich.
Bush and Cheney made a killing off these wars when they were in power.
WAR IS A RACKET.
he's not naive.....I'm sick of hearing about how we are in the middle east for "AMERICAN INTERESTS" I have no interest over there.....do you?
Read Smedley Butler's WAR IS A RACKET
we should only fight when attacked....then fight to win and get out....that is not how wars are conducted anymore is it?
They should have nominated Ron Paul....he could have gotten all the democrats who were disenchanted with Obama's war stance, the libertarians and the youth vote. He was always the only one who had a real chance to beat Obama for those reasons
1 year, 1 month ago on Marco Rubio: Securing The Border Is Now Secondary To Citizenship
here's a good one for you
http://www.activistpost.com/2013/06/main-core-list-of-millions-of-americans.html this all started under Dubya and Obama is happy to comply
at least we were warned
West is unconstitutional....I think it's funny he's commenting on the NSA snooping when he condoned the Patriot act and NDAA....hypocritical.
Rubio's career is finished but that won't stop the RNC from nominating him
I just hope we don't get Jeb Bush....I will not vote for either.
When I found out Rubio refused to vote against the NDAA I knew what he was.
Do any other countries still have anchor babies? I think we are the only one. It doesn't make much sense if someone enters the country illegally to let their children be citizens. They should go home with their parents.
Jesus did want us to help the poor.....He meant US personally....not give our money to the govt. to do it for us. That's where we went wrong.
eagle we have other candidates to chose from.....the 2 party deception has most people brainwashed into thinking they are all we can chose from
Not me BobE.....I'll vote my conscience. I didn't vote for McCain or Romney either.
