NASHVILLE – With cooperation from the state Department of Agriculture, some state legislators are tentatively seeking ways to process horse meat in Tennessee, either for consumption by humans in other nations or animals in zoos.
I got to tell you the philosopher of common sense don’t know what to say bout the politicians here in my home state of tennessee. One year them folks in Nashville who supposed to be making laws for us tried to make it okay for folks to eat road kill.
My question when I read bout the horse meat thing is why would the politicians want to put a plant for processin horse meat in our beautiful state. Now I figured he was gon say something like it make jobs, but he didn’t quite say it like that. What he said was he hoped the law would lure a foreign company to put a horse meat processin plant in Tennessee and the meat could be sent to them foreign countries what eat horse.
That aint the only reason he gave for wantin a plant in Tennessee. He considered it a first step in dealin with unwanted horses. The meat would also be sold to zoos in the U. S. of A.
We folks in the US of A don’t have to worry bout gettin any horse meat from the grocery cause it gainst the law to sell the meat to humans in the US of A. Course, I know and you know some body gon find a way to pass off the meat as beef ifn there is money to be made.
What I wonder is what fund raiser or corporation asked them politicians to try to put a process puttin the plant in our state.
Course them animal lovers sure aint gon be too far behind but the politicians done take care of that.
“The measure also declares that anyone who files a lawsuit against establishing a horse processing plant in the state must post a bond with the court equal to 20 percent of the cost of building the plant. If the bond is not filed, the bill calls for automatic dismissal of the lawsuit. If the lawsuit proceeds and the plaintiff loses, the bond is forfeited.”
Aint gon be no lawsuit filing, no sir, not here in the state of Tennessee.
