Where's The Beef?

(Two posts today. Please scroll down)

Or should I say horse meat:
President Obama last month quietly signed into law a spending bill that restores the American horse-slaughter industry...
If a Republican President had signed this bill, the story would be all over the mainstream media and PETA would be out rioting on Pennsylvania Avenue.

How safe is horse meat for human consumption?

  1. They eat horse meat in Germany, but they don't use the drugs cited in the article.

    I ate a pferdwurst or two while over there...

    This is going to be an interesting debate.

  2. Questions:

    This is what Congress and the President are spending their time on?

    Where is PETA?

    Where is Hollywood? They will protest for murders on death row, but not horses?

  4. Darn! Poor beautiful horses. Just got into an argument with the spouse. Saying what's the difference with lambs and cows?

    I believe there is a big difference, horses are more domesticated and can be wonderful companions. I watched Hidalgo, and came to that conclusion.

  5. SF is right...I was about to talk about the horse meat concession at the large outdoor market in Munich. I never did try it; I simply couldn't have.
    Re the drugs they put in meat in Germany to ANY animal? They don't exist. No drugs, NO hormones...nada.
    much healthier.

    I hate this whole idea but it seems that we've let horse meat be eaten for years ..this is the return of a bad idea that I'm guessing would never would have returned had the horse meat industry not probably supported Obama :)

    and yes, had Bush done this, we'd have Mr. Ed with tears streaming down his face in TV ads all over the leftwing news venues!

  6. This reminds me of the scene in "O Brother, Where art Thou?"

    "This stew's awfully good."

    "Think so? I slaughtered this horse last Tuesday. I'm afraid it's startin' to turn."

  7. Absolutely correct: Where is PeTA and the like? MSM? Helllloooooo?

    I'm surprised that Obama doesn't have us all eating Soylent Green. Give him a second, unaccountable term and I bet we will be.

  8. I don't really care. I don't plan on eating horse meat, but of all the destructive things he has done, this might be the least.

  9. Trestin,
    of all the destructive things he has done, this might be the least

    Agreed.

    However, I use this "hot button" issue to illustrate just how much the media are shilling for Obama.

  10. I love seeing wingnuts getting their panties in a bunch over something they know nothing about or got their 'information'from Fox News. Anything to keep misplaced anger at a peak.

  11. Liberal Dude,
    Once again, I remind you that I don't watch Fox News.

  12. What do you bet Obama's union buddies are behind this. Probably a buch of union goon horse slaughterers who support Obama.
