Here's the post that got my attention.
Which led to a little under 400 comments (at the time of my blog post), all over the board pro and anti slaughter. I see both sides of the discussion - sometimes, telling the horse goodbye via slaughter is better than the tortured starved conditions they live in. On the other side, buy a bullet, dig a hole, but give the critter a more humane end than dog food, huh?
Anyways, here's the comment I posted in response..
I'll step in it... I probably won't make it back for the banter response I guess I'll get - mail me if you're determined I see your answer.
I care about slaughter... BUT! Do ya'll realize or recognize there's a few other HUGE things going on in Congress right now that our elected officials ought to be paying attention to?
For example...Health Care
Cap & Trade
The "Next Stimulus Package"
Again, I care... But is this really the time to be adding "pet projects" to our Senators and Representatives workloads? Which would you rather they put their attention to? Horse care, or human health care?
I for one, would appreciate it if they'd mind their own business on almost all issues..
*here's where I duck & run*
I decided rather than duck & run, I'd open up the can of worms here, and encourage ya'll to discuss if you choose. I won't fight it either pro or con, but I really would prefer my Senator and Representative from my hometown region work on more nationally pressing human issues for now.
Okay gang, edit after the fact - If you read here, and don't regularly read Fugly or the comments, you might want to disregard this whole posting I've made. I just looked over the blog comments after my remark, and, while they stay slightly on topic of slaughter, it's gotten horribly ugly, crude, and inappropriate for young readers. If you've got kids or little eyes that read over your shoulder, don't go to the comments on my link above. Language, inappropriate accusations about personal lifestyle choices, I could go on. But I don't use that language on my blog, I don't put up anything I wouldn't let my Grandma or friend's kids read, and I won't send anybody to another link that does, intentionally that is.
uhhh.. back to that regularly scheduled programming, ya'll....
