First, They Took Our Horse Meat ...
Thanks to the brave passage of the Horse Slaughter Prevention Act, the House of Representatives has proven it is more than a cesspool of criminals that never manages to do any legislating.
Today, the House voted 263-146 to ban the slaughtering of American horses for food. Some 90,000 horses are turned into horsemeat every year.
And even though we eat millions of slaughtered cows and pigs every year, we don't like to eat horses. (Terrorists love to eat horses, so all U.S. horsemeat is exported to Europe and Asia.)
