"Slaughter definitely isn't pretty, and was just as ugly when American plants were open..."
Nope. No comparison between US plants and Mexican.
I live 60 miles from the Mexican border. I'd rather take my chances on a business that tries dumping horses (and can be fined out of business) than on individuals.
As for polls...I can find polls saying most Americans believe Obama was born in Kenya. I'm somewhere to the right of Rush Limbaugh politically, but no number of people saying Obama was born in Kenya will make it true. Ask a bunch of city folks "Should the noble horses of America be ruthlessly tortured and slaughtered to feed the French?", and the answer will be no.
