END HORSE SLAUGHTER. El Paso, Texas is the largest exporter in the world of horses going to slaughter. Horses, ponies, yearlings, foals, donkeys and pregnant mares are stabbed in the spine and skinned alive with their hearts still beating in the slaughter houses as well as being beheaded with their legs still kicking in midair so they can be eaten as a delicacy overseas..NO HORSE IS SAFE!!!!! Canada and Mexico especially Ciudad Juarez(cojoined with El Paso, Texas) are the worst of these perpetrators and killers. Don't believe these people who are FOR horse slaugthter. They are most likely killbuyers and make their living off blood money. Please don't be part of this monstrocity and speak out. Horses are sensitive, intelligent creatures of GOD and significant in both historical and religious text. Only a beast would want a horse killed, the same type of creature that Jesus rode in Jerusalem and will be back on. Horse slaughter is an evil on so many levels. Call your Senators, Representative, Governor and media to get the bills HR503 and S311 passed.

Tell me Sir, IF this looks so good. This is a segment of HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumball that shows a young USA horse who came through El Paso to a Juarez slaughter house being stabbed in the spine while onlookers cheered and applauded. This happens everyday. Horse meat is also known to cause cancer and seen as undeemable for human consumption by the FDA yet we serve it to other countries because who cares about their health anyways. OOOH, I bet cancer and constipation is good too.

I'm glad to see another "item" on one of my favorite western singers, Marty Robbins and El Paso, having resided there for a few months,two and a half
years ago, Rosa's Cantina. I intend to take some friends with me and visit a
daughter and other relatives, AND EAT THERE. Maybe they have it on their jukebox.

Tell me if this is alright. This is a young USA horse brought from El Paso to Juarez who was stabbed in the spine while onlookers cheered and applauded. It was featured on HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumball. Sorry, but after asking hundreds and hundreds of people from Juarez what they thought of eating horse meat they found the idea repulsive. Many Mexicans and Latin Americans are outraged this happens as shown in the thousands of signatures on petion sites asking for the end of horse slaughter. Actually, the tiny minority of people in America who like horse meat have been found to be morbidly obese and seen to have no respect or discrimination for what they put in their bodies. They probably would eat humans if it were allowed because their consumption knows no boundaries. Really, no respect for a creature so significant in historical and spiritual text really is a sign of irreverance to God and anything living. Jesus Christ rode on an equine on Palm Sunday, the same donkey was said to follow him to the crucifixtion, and Christ is said he will be back on a horse. There are donkeys who have a cross on their backs. Does this tell you anything? Does this tell you how spiritual they are along with how American civilization was built on horse's backs? And this is the thanks we give them??Christ resurrected and lives forever in the spiritual world, while man's sins are constantly stuck and played out in the physical world. Sins are always being reincarnated and the cycle never ends. Is there any remorse and repentance for our sins++++++?

No. You don't seem to know how the horse slaughter business works. Its the other way around, killbuyers have been known to give kickbacks of their blood money made on horses lives to politicians. The biggest proponent for horse slaughter is Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho. That's why the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Action HR 503 and S311, that will end the transportation of USA horses to Mexico and Canada in a stranglehold in Congress and the House of Representatives keeps on stalling on these bills. If it was true about the lobbyists the United States Department of Agricultures would have by now declared horse meat offically unfit to eat as well as "tainted, adulterated and therefore denatured." Because of all the red tape in Congress and all the deadwood in the USDA nothing ever gets done. In the meantime horses are being skinned, hung by their necks with their hearts still beating and or beheaded in midair with their legs still kicking while the "human" race lets this happens. So much for faith in humanity. Anything for a buck, huh.

I'm glad to know you notice and realize how I'm trying to do my part in helping change the world for the better. So what do you do? Get over it, I'm not going to stop until all horses are safe.

I have better things to think about and do besides being petty on a message board to others. Such as trying to end this

So do want to help or not?
