Starvation is Better

See how fast your head hits the desk while reading this story:

Louisiana’s State Health Department forced a homeless shelter to destroy $8,000 worth of deer meat because it was donated from a hunter organization.

KTBS-TV reports that the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission lost 1,600 pounds of venison because the state’s Health Department doesn’t recognize Hunters for the Hungry, an organization that allows hunters to donate any extra game to charity.

“We didn’t find anything wrong with it,” Rev. Henry Martin told KTBS. “It was processed correctly, it was packaged correctly.”

Hunters for the Hungry is not some new thing. They’ve been doing this for years. They donate extra deer meat to a licensed slaughterhouse, which then distributes it. But, after hearing some complaints, the Department decided they didn’t know where the meat was coming from. God only knows what the hunters did to that meat before donating it! So they forced the homeless shelter to dump it and pour bleach all over it.

Yes. Bleach.

Rarely do we see such a perfect illustration of government thinking. If it is not mandatory, it must be forbidden. If meat comes from a source that they haven’t regulated, well, no one can eat it. Not even the homeless.

Idiots. Cruel idiots.

    Stuff like this is why I think humanity needs to die off in a catastrophic event. Saying this move was fucking stupid is being nice.

    Ask the homeless if they give a fuck that the meat came from a hunter organization. I’m gonna bet they don’t.

    First world problem, isn’t that what they call these types of things?

    Yep. What the fuck is wrong with deer meat anyway? Guy in my office brought in some deer bologna the other week and it was really good.

    What the fuck is wrong with deer meat anyway?

    Unless it was handled by a moron, not cured properly, or spoiled, deer meat is ome seriously delicious stuff. Leaner than beef or pork, and if well prepared something tasty.

    Look the problem here is that these are the usual kind of people that stand on principle as long as that stance lets others do the suffering. I bet my ass if they where the hungry ones and all they had was deer meat, they would eat it, even if the had witnessed the guy that killed the deer rape the corspe. It i always easier to demand high morality, even when said morality is anything but like in tis case, when you are not the one that has to suffer from that choice.

    Likely better than the horse meat, er, beef, a lot of places serve.

    Horse meat aint that bad either. Being told it is beef when it is not is a problem of course.

    Look, people eat all sorts of things. I remember a girl friend of mine going all stupid when she found out certain cultures ate dogs and guinea pigs. Oh she rambled about how wrong and evil that was. I pointed out that there are cultures that worship sme animal or another and if we basically decided to make all worshipped animals off limits for consumption, we would soon be eating nothing but dirt plants. Some people might dig that. Not me. Besides, the best way to take any animal off the edeangered species link is to have humans eat it. If tiger became a popular thing to eat, I guarnatee you they would be off the endangered animal list in little over a decade.

    I’m still trying to figure out why people freak out about the horse meat in Swedish meatballs. Did it taste good or not, sheesh?

    The way i understood it that the content of horse to beef was about 1% horse to 99% Beef…. sooo really nothing then, how much insects and other critters get in the ground meats?

    Yep. What the fuck is wrong with deer meat anyway? Guy in my office brought in some deer bologna the other week and it was really good.

    Nothing, in many ways it is superior to beef.
    I woudl imagine at all of this occurred because of some citified moron freaked out at the idea of meat “killed with a weapon and not bought at a store”…….

    A couple of months ago here in Seattle, the city stopped a church group from making food for homeless shelters. See they were making food in their homes and then bringing it in and feeding the hungry that way is a big no no. All food distributed to homeless shelters must be made in an inspected commercial kitchen. Morons.

    There were quite a few instances where the product was basically a horse lasagne. Which to us Brits is disgusting. I mean, what are we, French?

    Anyway, I think the outrage is around people being missold horse meat. People thought they were buying/consuming on thing, but they were actually buying/consuming something else. Danm you regulation!!

    On a side note, the comedy angle on this scandal has switched from making horse puns to the US media reaction to the story

    And in the story above – I didn’t get the impression their problem was that it was deer, or that it was from hunters. More likely they didn’t fill out the correct forms or something.

    How else are the government parasites and their connections going to make some sweet cash or earn some perks from this practice? They may tell you they do these things to protect someon, but the protection is of whatever racket they want to run.
