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.
