Just When You Thought It Couldn’t Get Any Stupider
I had a difficult time turning my mind off and getting any sleep last night. No, it had nothing to do with the fireworks that went off outside my hotel window at 2 AM or the roster that thinks the sun comes up at 3. Instead, sleep was kept at bay by thoughts of smug politicians standing behind podiums spouting lies, untruths, fabrications and even making false accusations. How do they get away with it?
"I am sick and tired of STUPID!"
Yesterday we ran the article on the insanity that is the Nebraska Senate and it’s perverted pursuit of bringing bloody horse slaughter to their state. When you consider the source I can understand why baby faced and immature Sen. Tyson Larson thinks killing and eating horses is a cool thing to do, hell, he has hung out with “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis and Davie “Doink” Duquette and in so doing he has caught the disease; it’s highly contagious you know…where I come from it’s called “butt ugly stupid”. By rubbing elbows, and God knows what else, this little newbie legislator has contracted the cancer of dumb and dumber so he has been coached on ignoring the facts, speaking falsehoods and worshiping special interests as that is where the good ole money comes from.
But now Nebraska is further embarrassed by a Sen. Tom Carlson who not only supported the bill but went on to use incorrect figures and flawed methodology while kicking things up a notch and getting all over HSUS who all the horse eaters fear as the big, bad boogie man. These guys are screaming, raving maniacs. How does the public let these corn jerker’s get away with it?
This is the sort of stuff that nightmares are made of and that is exactly what kept me awake when I should have been dreaming about home, my wife, our horses and the possibilities of ridding the political systems of such obvious whores to the dollar.
I am disgusted, not tired, just angry, pissed off and sick of the nonsense. I don’t do “stupid” very well and my Fun Meter is about pegged at zero.
Perhaps it’s time to take the gloves off, maybe we should be picking up the phone and letting these idiots know just exactly what we think of them. We clog the faxes of the BLM and our federal representatives maybe these little piss ants need to hear from us. They think that we are all radical “animal rights activists” anyway why not verify the fact that we have clout and the ability to be heard. For a fact they need to read the facts on the horse slaughter issue as so eloquently put by John Holland, recently. Spam their email boxes with the truth and then see what these boneheaded bastards have to say. We can’t let this slip under the table without banging on a drum or stepping on their crooked toes.
Take a second and read their rhetoric (HERE) then read, copy or forward John’s information (HERE) and let these bubble headed Bozos know what you think of them. I don’t care if they don’t represent me, they need to know that the bulk of taxpaying, law abiding Americans are against slaughtering and eating our companion horses.

And no insult to the good folks of Nebraska, who these soulless pieces of crap represent, but where I come from we have a saying, “Cowboys don’t eat their best friend.”
But who knows, these guys might…remember, they are politicians.
