"Americans do not eat horse flesh," declared Rep. Nick J. Rahall II, D-W.Va. "The concept is repugnant to most Americans." He implored his fellow congressmen to support a bill that would shut down the three plants in the U.S. that kill horses and send them to Europe "for some warped demand among foreign diners."
Considering that AMERICANS are employed at this facility and we have a large trade deficit, this seems like yet another silly idea. If Rahall et al are doing this for ethical reasons, it seems a curious place to draw the line and I say that as someone who loves horses. I have no desire to eat Trigger or lobster for that matter, but I don't think others are warped for doing so. On the other hand people who eat mushrooms are not to be trusted, always remember that, never trust a mushroom eater.
