    It's going to boost the dog food industry. Maybe Trump is bringing back jobs.

    Sad to sell out a part of your heritage---an equestrian art form to boot

    Wanna save that money---don't spend that amount on the sacred cow of defense---ooopps that's yet another lobby group

    A whole $10M! Wow, that should balance the budget...

    Horses are an introduced species so I don't really care what they do with them. Maybe the best thing would be to capture, snip them (horse vasectomy) and release.
    Suzanne Roy, executive director of the American Wild Horse Campaign, said the plan could put the horses on the brink of extinction.

    "America can't be great if these national symbols of freedom are destroyed," she said

    Lol exactly. They are basically an invasive species.
  • Shawn C.Shawn C. Senior Member Posts: 6,736 Senior Member
    I was going to say invasive but instead chose the term introduced. I think there exists a very real distinction among the terms by biologists.

    OK was'nt going to go here---If the wild horse is irrelevant ...ask your native peoples

    If they are considered "Americans"...should'nt their heritage count??....Think about that one boys

    Don't forget house sparrows and collared doves.

    The Mourning Doves are really declining here in northern UT. I see more collared doves than mourning these days.

    They aren't eliminating them. The uproar is only about them being sold for food. They sell these mustangs every year. You can buy one yourself, if you want. But there are restrictions on being sold for food. Who gives a crap if they're eaten or not?

    The story eludes to more than outrage about eating them---The Agriculture lobby wants that pasture land---only one way

    Aaaand if ya have eaten at enough burper joints---ya may have already eaten some horse meat

    Back on the topic, there's an article in today's WSJ about how the Republicans can't agree on tax breaks that should be eliminated in order to get the corporate rate down.

    Republicans seemingly can't agree on anything, much less accomplish anything in Washington despite controlling both houses of Congress, occupying the White House and having a conservative majority on the Supreme Court.

    Just sayin'. :)

    No. Wait! They have voted more than 60 times to abolish the ACA, surely they've done that by now.

    Oh. Er, never mind.......................

    The addition of the Covfefe clause will get the ball rolling. Waiting on the news of what that means.
