Seabiscuit and gravy

Someone styling herself “Jennifer” went on this mini-rant on Yahoo! Answers:

Is Governor Mary Fallin Unethical?
Yes she is, and has passed legislation which allow the killing of innocent animals to be processed for meat and served in our nations restaurants! Cows have been used as a source of meat as well as chicken and hogs for many years, but you don’t kill noble domestic creatures and serve them in restaurants!!! What’s next the slaughter of dogs and cats? This governor needs to step down! She is totally inhumane toward animals by allowing this legislation. She has also passed legislation that would allow the use of drones to spy on law abiding citizens. She’s apparently all for the Patriot Act and believes the rights of others should be violated as well as there privacy! What if I’m naked in my house and a perverted man who is operating the drones sees me? Do you think he will remove the drones? No! If he’s a man, he’ll wanna see a beautiful girl naked! This is a violation of MY PERSONAL PRIVACY!!! What if the drones photograph me naked? and what if I find those pictures on the internet? Guess who’s gonna be sued? That’s right the state of Oklahoma for allowing these drones to be violate my personal privacy!

Two words, honey: “Venetian blinds.”

Now if you want to complain about Fallin’s politically-motivated backflip on health-care exchanges, I am there. And I admit to being uncomfortable with equines in the stew, but at least they’re not going into my bowl.

    Watched too much Disney as a child. And believed it.

    If she actually had some experience handling the livestock she mentioned, she wouldn’t think they were very noble. Particularly the chickens and hogs.

    Don’t give the dronemeisters any ideas. :)

    Never mind the fact that, as a member of the executive branch, Governor Fallin hasn’t passed a single piece of legislation in two years. She did sign a bunch, though.

    You didn’t get it, all of ya, didn’t get it at all.
    That was an advertizement and a “come on”.
    You missed the [most likely self-deluded] “beautiful girl naked” out there.

    Men. Noble creatures, indeed.

    We are trained not to notice such things, as they are often packaged with malware and other undesirable stuff.

    Could it be the other way around? That you noticed the horsies and the drones and whatnot – because of certain “subliminal” message?

    Well, I obviously noticed the reference, hence the “Venetian blinds” bit. But scantily-clad or totally unclad women are about as rare on the Internet as cat macros, so she got less attention than she might have gotten in a less-impersonal environment.

    Tatyana: Considering the amount of crazy inhabiting that bod, even nekkidness isn’t much of a draw. At least for me!

    My main problem with these kinds of rants is the tendency of the ranter to range over several diverse and unrelated subjects, which tends to make me less sympathetic to/less believing of their seriousness.

    And a confession, even as a die-hard Pony fan: I really don’t have a problem with the slaughter and consumption of horsemeat. I would argue that ethically-done slaughter of an unwanted horse is preferable to letting it starve out in a field somewhere, which is what several recent animal-cruelty cases in the area have turned up.

    “… killing of innocent animals…?” Excuse me, but what judge and jury has convicted the GUILTY animals, and on what charges?

    I demand this woman remove her post as it makes the rest of us Jennifers look bad. And we are many.
