Read into the article a bit and you'll see where the meat plant workers would shoot water up the nostrils of the cows.

Now, if it's torturing cows, how come the behavior isn't considered torture when applied to people?

Are you trying to protect terrorists?

Those cows confessed to involvement in the 911 attack, the Madrid bombing, and the assassinations of JFK and Lincoln.

Yup, they were members of Al-Cowda.

____________________ The rule is if the cow won,t walk the length of the ramp it can't get into school lunches. I wouldn't eat the school lunchs either.

Waterboarding is only torture if the cows do it to us and not if we do it to them.

Reading the article I came upon Food Safety and Inspection Service, otherwise known as FSIS, which is way to easily associated with feces. At least the way I said it to myself in my head.

They might want to consider changing that name.

_________________________ I am in no way trying to condone the actions many of you have seen from the video provided by the SPCA. I feel that it is water boarding, I also know how stupid the walk rule is, lets say you have a cow that steps into a ground hogs burrow, and breaks one of its legs. You have two choices. kill it on the spot and bury the remains or take it into your own barn and butcher it your self. No Slaugther house will accept a non walking cow, because they have to close down and decontaminate their whole operation. MAD COW desease has the USDA running scared, if it can not walk some distance on its own then it must be turned away.
