I just read British Horse Meat Scandal over my friend’s Dear Kitty’s blog and then UK Vets Have ‘Repeatedly Raised Concerns’ Over Bute in Food over on Straight From The Horse’s Mouth. Oh yes, I am going on about it now…I am damn mad now! I have just had enough.
I reblogged Straight From The Horse’s Mouth, but yeah, Dear Kitty got me going. I think he posts them because he knows I am passionate about the horse issue and he likes to get me going about it LOL ;) I am just joking Dear Kitty ;)
Why is no one giving a crap about this and doing something about this??? Is the bute or Phenylbutazone(see a case study here to see why how harmful it is to humans and why) and the other possible chemicals not scaring them enough by now if the moral and ethical reasons of the act of slaughtering and eating a horse alone is not enough for them to stop??? It is the MONEY and the GREED I tell you! That is what it is. Someone is lining these twat’s pockets and making them blind to what was is really going on what in front of them. Is it going to mass mass sickness, contamination of the food supply? I mean thousands, 10s of thousands from eating contaminated horse meat and then finally, maybe they will open up their bloody eyes and take off those bloody blinders and see the wrong that is in front of them. I am LIVID at this point. This shouldn’t have happened. They shouldn’t have started slaughtering horses years ago before I was born.
And I want to know how the flip you cannot tell the difference between horse meat and beef??!! Really!!! You would have to be blind not to tell the difference! I have not seen horse meat in person and I could tell the difference between the two. You cannot sit back and tell me that cuts in food inspectors made this happen. That is a load of rubbish! Lacking food inspectors does not mean that you do less of a job when you are trying to inspect for for a whole country for millions of people! If you do that, Lord only knows what else has gone through that shouldn’t have. That cuts of beef or pork or chicken that aren’t usually sold to the public, expired meat, hair in meat, etc.
They better bring those people, those inhuman slime, up on the highest crimes the court allows and punish them well, as much as the law allows. Jail them for a couple hundred years and keep them in there so they can think about what they have done. They can think about the horse’s lives they took. Those horses that will never run free again in the green fields. That will never carry a laughing child on their back again. That will never carry an Olympic rider over a jump again and win ribbon. That will never chomp on a sweet apple or a peppermint again. My heart just breaks in a million shards for those lives that were taken for no reason except for money and for people who think it is a freakin delicacy to eat that meat when there are thousands of options of things to eat for a delicacy. The can all just sod off for all I care! A senseless genocide if you really look at it at. Young, old, mare, stallion, gelding, sick, well, loved, unloved whether they were wanted, unwanted, or swindled beautiful, loving, caring horses. Doesn’t matter. They all lived, breathed, thought, felt, cared, cried. Sod off, inspectors! Oh yes, I am mad as all bloody hell now! You can bank on it! I will be going on for days now. I just commented on another blog who has been posting about this as news comes out who specifically posts about the slaughter issue.
And I will tell you, my dear readers, if this rubbish happens in the US, which it all could. For you cannot trust what they put on the labels. You cannot trust the USDA because look what has happened in Ireland and the UK. If I ever find out that I have unintentionally consumed horse meat, I will be more livid than I am now and I will find someone to hold responsible and I will find somehow to compensate for what I have done because that would be like a sin and eating a beloved loved one. Or eating my child. Or my husband. Or my best friend. I would probably, in all seriousness, cut my arm or something to feel the pain the went through. To make reparations. Though it wouldn’t make it one bit the pain and horror and terror they went though at all. I would never forgive myself. Never. I would think about it and repent for that as well until the day I die. My heart would ache. I would be sick to my stomach. I would make myself vomit. I would wither and become melancholy. I would repulse myself. I would not be able to eat for days. Not trusting the labels on the food or food itself. I would think to myself “how could I eat my friend? how could I do that to someone I loved? he suffered so before he died and I effing ate him??? how could I do that to him/her???”
I love you France. I j’adore Cyrando de Bergerac, Gérard Depardieu, Martyrs, Morjana Alaoui, your genre-bending graphic horror movies but his is 2013 for crying outloud!!! THERE IS NO BLOODY REASON TO BE EATING HORSES!!!! GET OUT OF THE BLOODY STONE AGE AND GROW UP AND START EATING CIVILIZED FOOD!!! You have such other wonderful cuisine. Go back and start to enjoy that again. I don’t know why you ever went to enjoying horse meat.
I am sooooooooo freakin’ mad I just want to take my guns and take care of whoever is responsible and put THEM through the slaughterhouse, the torture, the agony at gunpoint and see how they like it. Enough is enough. This needs to stop one way or another. I’ve had it. Other people have had it. Let’s do something about it. What say you? Obviously laws on paper aren’t going to stop them. Or words. Something physical must be done at this point. Grrr
(Plz note that I am a really uber nice, lovely person. I am just really, really uber mad but I would never shoot anybody or hurt anybody in anyway. I just love horses and there is only a few people I would lay down my life for 1. Christ, 2. My family(depends who
and 3. My horse. No one else. Oh my bff and her baby would be 4 of course . Just sick and tired of my friends, my
lovely dears, the horses being slaughtered. It really hurts and breaks my heart is all. :)
Just plz stop…I am just mad with pain and agony…
That is all I am going to say about this right now. Thanks.
