There is no evidence that Americans are suffering disease and early death due to eating vast quantities of our 'tainted meat', nor that the Japanese are being poisoned by our products.
" Farmers with over 1000 head of sheep will have a passport for each and every one of them, same with cattle, Every horse in Europe should have one as well."
Not in the US, thankfully. My friend in Utah doesn't have a passport for each of his 2000 sheep & 400 cattle. He's hiring guys from Peru to tend the flocks because no American wants to herd the sheep. He & his sons speak limited Spanish, and trying to use sign language to explain "passports" would be interesting. And he runs cattle on land where there are less than two cows/sq mile. I'm not sure how anyone would check to see if sick cattle getting a shot were also getting it recorded in their "passports"! They are out grazing 100 miles from the closest vet.
Same with the horses. They live and work where there are no vets to come stamp their passports. The land below is closed now to grazing, but they used to run their sheep here:
You don't run into a lot of vets out there.
Nor is there any reason behind the passport system, other than to protect the high costs of meat in Europe. Y'all are not bigger or stronger or healthier based on our poisonous beef. No one in America eats horse meat, so we sure don't have to worry about that!
In America, we believe in freedom and free markets. In Europe, y'all believe in a system of government control and regulation that is repulsive to most Americans. We don't have helmets laws for our riders, or training requirements. We don't live in a place where you can't swing a dead cat without having it cross 3 national borders. We don't want to pay European prices for our food or gas or horses or houses or anything else.
Europe runs on a system that a lot of city dwellers in America approve of - a tightly regulated place. Unhappily, our cities in America often want to force that stuff on the rest of us, just like Europe does. I'm not telling y'all how to live, but I'm not interested in you telling ME how to live. So I think we ought to be looking at other markets. Asia and Africa aren't likely to complain about American beef, nor about American horsemeat.
