    Now THERE is a good debate topic right there.

    If you do not know it is outdated then it IS your fault. It is your responsibility to do your research, and test what you find. The article posted was two years old, clearly posted at the bottom of the article, and easily found. If you run with what you read as fact without checking its information, than it is your fault. You are responsible for your knowledge and information.

    Your job for a debate is to find current information to post. You must know your topic in and out, and you should know your opponent's point of view. You must be able to trump anything they can throw at you. You cannot win arguments with emotion and belief. You must approach them scientifically with evidence to support your side.

    And when you say they are slaughtered because people choose to eat horse meat.You are wrong there.That is why there are no slaughter plants open in the US now.Why is that? Why do you think that Natural valley farms was closed due to the welfare of the animals?!

    Do the math.
    Ok here is what I am talking about these statements are completely incorrect.

    Horse slaughter has been around as long as horses have been around. If you read what I posted about this you would get it but you choose not to respond.

    The US is the only country who dose not eat horse meat. Why??? I mean out side the fact that there is no real need to eat horse meat here in the US. There is more then enough land to raise cattle unlike other countries. We needed horses to work the ranches so they where more valuable as working animals/livestock then as for food. Americans are more sentimental then people in other countries. There are a lot of reasons why we do not eat horse meat.

    Yes there is a difference. If you don't know that your facts are outdated or just plain wrong that is ignorance. If you had any real facts you wouldn't get burned so bad when you try to start an argument. If you could put together a coherent thought and spell better than a second grader that would help also.

    last time I checked I can spell just fine. Stop saying stupid stuff like that.If you want to 'burn' me on how I didn't know laws have changed, that is fine, but don't go and say stupid stuff like that.

    No not really. Most people who are passionate about something tend to ignore the real facts or only pick the ones that fit their ideas or what fits so their passion can stay intact.

    It is great to be passionate about something. However make sure that your passion dose not cloud your judgment.

    I will ask you something. You say you are passionate. SO have you taken in and cared for an unwanted animal. Horse cat dog??? Have you volunteered at a rescue or local animal shelter?? Anything that gives you info first hand on a local level. This will give you more incite into things then PETA or any other radical organization.

    Just because I believe that some people in PETA have good intentions and they are nothing like the people that are going out and causing harm, does not mean that I support them. And yes, I have a pit bull that I got from a pit bull rescue and I have 2 cats that I got from the OHS.As for volunteering, I don't really have time right now.

    Well lest see the Roman Empire drank their horses blood and then when the horses where too weak to keep going they would slaughter then and eat them as they traveled. There are many other civilizations who eat horse meat. Like I stated the US is about the only country who dose not eat horse meat. That stems from the fact that horses where and to some extent still used to work very very large ranches which are not present in other countries.
