(In My Outraged Opinion) by R.T. Fitch ~ Author/Director of HfH Advisory Council
“Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis Fails at Interpreting Proposed BillWith vision clouded by ignorance, narrow-mindedness, prejudice and lack of morals Wyoming State Rep. “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis and her main squeeze Dave “Doink” Duquette got themselves so wrapped up in another state’s business that they failed to even read or understand a proposed bill that was voluntarily withdrawn.
Maine State Representative, Gary Knight, had proposed a bill, LD 1075, which would ban the selling of and transporting of horses to slaughter AND contained a provision for a registry that would track ownership of horses that were to be exported from the state and there was a $5,000 penalty for failing to register said horses.
The issue of the registry and associated $5,000 dollar fine became a lightning rod for negative public opinion so Rep. Knight voluntarily pulled the bill.
As reported by the Bangor Maine Daily News:
‘Rep. Gary Knight, R-Livermore Falls, said he will resubmit the bill next winter. “This will now give me time to create a cleaner bill,” he said, referring to his wanting to remove language that didn’t reflect the measure’s original goal.
Knight said all of the registration provisions will be removed from the next bill. He said they were unacceptable to many in the equine industry.
“I must have received more than 300 angry emails and calls,” he said Friday.’
“Slaughterhouse” and Doink have taken this to be some sort of victory for the bloody horse eaters and have released a communiqué to the seven? (7) members of their fringe horse eating cult extolling the “laying aside” of the bill and commending a 77 year old citizen who not only did not understand the intent of the bill but never testified to begin with.
This is yet another clear example of the perversion of the truth and lack of honesty exhibited by Wallis, an elected Wyoming official, and Duquette, an obscure alleged horse trainer, via their questionable organization the United Horsemen formerly known as the controversial, but better named, United Horsemen’s Front. (Let’s check that 990)
Inserted, below, is Slaughterhouse’s bulletin and the letter from an elderly main citizen that United Horsemen decided to mislead and victimize, it’s enough to make you vomit.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Good News from Maine…
Yesterday we received word that the bill in Maine, LD 1075, that would have made consuming horse meat a crime, and prevented transport of horses, was laid aside and will not be taken up again this year.
Last night I received a phone call from Clayton Weeks of Mexico, Maine, who had contacted us earlier when he became determined to fight the bill’s passage. He thanked us for our assistance, and for providing information that was very useful in their efforts. Fortunately, the horse industry in Maine came together to put enough pressure on the Legislature to prevent it advancing, so Mr. Week’s testimony was not required.
Word has it that the sponsor intends to bring a revised bill next year, so Clayton is keeping his testimony ready. His is the sort of testimony that is far more prevalent than most people realize, and is straight from the heart. I felt it was well worth sharing….
SENATOR SHERMAN, REPRESENTATIVE EDGECOMB AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE:
MY NAME IS CLAYTON E. WEEKS I AM HERE TO OPPOSE LD 1075. I AM 77 YEARS OLD, I WAS BORN IN 1933 AND MY FATHER DIED ONE MONTH BEFORE THE BOMBING OF PEARL HARBOR. TIMES WERE VERY HARD DURING THE WAR. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A LOT HARDER IF WE DID NOT HAVE HORSE MEAT TO SUSTAIN US.
I SERVED OUR COUNTRY FOR THREE YEARS FROM AUG. 1953 TO AUG. 1956. RETURNED HOME. GOT MARRIED IN 1958 AND STARTED RAISING A FAMILY,2 GIRLS AND 2 BOYS ,BOUGHT A SMALL PIECE OF LAND AND PUT A TRAILER ON IT AND STILL LIVE IN IT TO THIS DAY.
ABOUT 1969 THINGS GOT TOUGH ONCE AGAIN, TIMES WAS SLOW AND GOT VERY FEW DAYS AT WORK AND WAS ON THE VERGE OF LOSING MY HOME SO ONCE AGAIN WE STARTED EATING HORSE MEAT [ ABOUT TWICE AS CHEAP AS BEEF]
WE RAISED OUR FAMILY. ONE OF MY SONS IS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT, MY OTHER SON WAS IN DESERT STORM AND IS NOW A DISABLED VETERAN
MY TWO DAUGHTERS WENT AHEAD AND RAISED THERE FAMILIES OF WHICH ONE OF MY GRANDSONS SERVED TWO TERMS IN IRAQ.THANK GOD HE RETURNED SAFELY.
I FEEL THAT WE HAVE EARNED OUR RIGHT TO EAT HORSE MEAT IF WE SO DESIRE. I STRONGLY FEEL THAT THIS BILL WHITTLES AWAY AT OUR FREEDOM.
EVERYONE HAS A CHOICE
IF YOU WANT TO EAT IT “EAT IT”
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO EAT IT . ” DON’T “
My heart goes out to Mr. Weeks for the trials and tribulations that he has been forced to endure but even more so for being duped and used by one of the most deceptive and despicable politicians in the United States, Sue Wallis. It is understandable that she is under investigation for complaints of alleged fraud and currently being sued for alleged assault the negative hits just keep on a rollin for the ole Evil Princess of Horse Slaughter.
And last but not least, shame on the State of Wyoming for not taking action against this loose cannon of a legislator. Wallis only brings bad press and negative vibes to a state that is already eyeball deep in equine hypocrisy and collusion.
It’s time they cut their losses and run.
More to follow….
