    Angry Now we can eat horse meat!

    The latest law passed and signed by the president allows for the creation of horse slaughter houses to open in the USA and begin selling horse meat to be consummed by humans.

    Obama Legalizes Horse Slaughter for Human Consumption

    Madkat posted this article:

    You may sign a petition at www.whitehouse.gov if you are against this.

    https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/fb/petition/petition/ban-horse-slaughter/GnNH1pS4

    Many of you may know that I am a horse person and this is a revolting developement. Please be kind to horses and sign this petition. Maybe we can stop this action somehow.

    What was he thinking? I tried to sign the petition but after I signed in, it said the page wasn't available - might be working on the site. I'll try again in a little bit.

    Something seems very wrong with this story all together.
    There is no way this could be a story with out the entire nation being up in arms.
    The Horse is one of those sacred images of our countrys history.
    I don't see how this could be a real story without the entire nation (and world) chimeing in.

    Yeah, something seems fishy here.

    Sad to say there are MANY stories out there that should have this country up in arms, but the lame-stream media doesn't think it's news.

    This decision doesn't surprise me. Just one more reason, for me, to vote this guy OUT next year!

    the whole story, not just the hyperbole -
    Horses Could Soon Be Slaughtered For Meat In U.S. | Fox News

    since most Americans oppose eating horse meat (strange since we keep pet pigs and eat pigs ,but whatever) I doubt there'll be horse meat markets anytime soon

    I'm appalled. I used to have two horses. The thought that they could be killed for meat makes me sick. I am definitely passing this along to everyone I know.

    Site worked now...signed Petition!! Figures...this probably went through in one of those middle of the night sessions and buried in another bill so that we the people didn't know anything about it and probably a number of Members of Congress didn't know they were voting for it either. Why the President would do this I just don't understand.

    Yep, I just read it.
    Yikes,
    the real trouble is that this would not be finacially successful here in the states cause so few people would support it.
    So what do the greedy business men do??
    Export Export Export!
    It's a shame on us.

    Wow we're comparing pigs to horses now? Not to many people in America have an Arnold running around.... LOL I have a feeling that the President will blame this on Bush and say SEE BUSH LEFT THE COUNTRY IN SUCH A MESS THAT NOW WE EVEN HAVE TO EAT MR ED...... I can see it now every year before the Kentucky Derby The President will pardon a horse at the Whitehouse......

    All kidding aside this is absolutely horrendous......

    Perhaps the administration is searching for something the Republicans will add to the ultra nutritious school lunch menu.

    Didn't see anything one sided...an article about horses being slaughtered for meat and a petition to oppose if you so choose...nobody is arguing

    This is absolutely disgusting. I cannot believe this bill was passed & I hope Obama gets what he deserves with this. So wrong, on so many levels. I will be appalled if this actually ends up happening.
