"Polls show more than 70 percent of Americans oppose horse slaughter and few if any eat horse meat"
"Let’s forget for the moment that candidate Barack Obama in 2008 pledged to keep the ban on horse slaughter permanent"
Studies have shown that when slaughter plants are opened in rural areas, violent crime quickly rises. Think about it. Horses are sometimes cut into pieces while still alive and screaming. What kind of person would accept the minimum wage to engage in this horrific behavior? The question answers itself.

Horse meat is considered a delicacy in many countries, foremost among them, Italy. What's the big deal? They aren't rounding up mustangs and slaughtering them... If some people want to eat it, why should they not be allowed to? Other than gambling on them, a horse is not exactly a useful animal any more. In fact, cows are probably more useful because of their milk, and no one complains about killing THEM. Other than PETA.
