President Obama just legalized horse slaughter for human consumption.
That means the president says we can now kill and eat horses.
The bill was signed into law right before thanksgiving.
So Obama will pardon two turkeys but only after sentencing 120,000 to 200,000 horses to death.
The slaughtering of horses was originally illegal only because there weren't any finances to support the inspection of horses in transit and the slaughter houses.
But now there apparently are enough finances.
So even though 70% of Americans are against horse slaughter, and Obama made a campaign promise to permanently ban horse slaughter, he still signed the bill.
Seems dishonest to us.

The whole Obama family was present as the Prez gave his speech.
Check it out in the above video.

Daryl Hannah, who was arrested at a similar protest, said:
