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.

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.

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
