    Horses Could Soon Be Slaughtered for Meat in U.S.

    Horses could soon be butchered in the U.S. for human consumption after Congress quietly lifted a 5-year-old ban on funding horse meat inspections, and activists say slaughterhouses could be up and running in as little as a month.
    Slaughter opponents pushed a measure cutting off funding for horse meat inspections through Congress in 2006 after other efforts to pass outright bans on horse slaughter failed in previous years. Congress lifted the ban in a spending bill President Barack Obamasigned into law Nov. 18 to keep the government afloat until mid-December.
    It did not, however, allocate any new money to pay for horse meat inspections, which opponents claim could cost taxpayers $3 million to $5 million a year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture would have to find the money in its existing budget, which is expected to see more cuts this year as Congress and the White House aim to trim federal spending.

    Iirc, when they we're last allowed to slaughter horses, most of the meat was sent over seas. It wasn't that long ago.
    I may be wrong.

    No it doesn't. It has a somewhat sweeter taste. It tastes like horse.

    That's right. There's no market for horse meat in NA. Most of it is shipped to France and a few other European countries.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I'm looking forward to cheese-horseburgers at Mickey D's. I propose we call it the "National Velveeta".
