Stupidity still reigns supreme within the ranks of the zealots in America. Sadly we have become a nation that is quite adept at shooting ourselves in the foot and chasing our tails.

I guess the people who stop the slaughter in their heads think they are saving the horses and they are not being shipped to Mexico instead. All they did is cost jobs and get rid of european support of horse mean.

Your guessing shows how ignorant many are. Numerous studies and facts on slaughter for profit prove time and time again, the majority of horses slaughtered are healthy, and "slaughter" is a well defined term. Subjected to horrific torture.

I don't consume meat. There are many other variety of foods that are much more more healthy. Dried beans yogurt, seitan, eggs, tofu, unsalted nuts.

Mmmm, mmmmm, good!

Btw, if you consume eggs bought at the grocery store, then you're supporting THE ABSOLUTE WORST abuse of an animal on the planet.
