No More Wok the Dog?

You can’t eat them.
You can’t have sex with them.

What is the world of pets coming to?

Damn lib-rals standing in the way of a 1,000 years of tradition. 

From Reuters come this story about the continuing crisis:

House Panel Considers Ban on Killing Dogs and Cats for Meals

Making a meal out of a dog or a cat may soon land you in jail.

An amendment added Wednesday to a farm bill that was approved by the House Agriculture Committee would bar people from "knowingly slaughtering a dog or cat for human consumption," as well as transporting or participating in other commercial activity related to eating pet meat.

Dog and cat slaughter is extremely rare in the U.S. and already prohibited in commercial slaughterhouses. But consumption of animals commonly considered as pets and companions in American culture still takes place among some immigrant groups. Only a handful of states, including New York, New Jersey and California, ban such small-scale butchering.

Violators would be subject to up to a year of imprisonment, a fine, or both. The proposal would be part of a reauthorization of Agriculture Department programs.

What to do, you ask?
Move to Switzerland. Still legal here.

...I like the phrase "knowingly slaughtering". How could you not know? But I guess certain kinds of drugs could produce the state of mind required for this to happen. Ah well...

"Anal sexual intercourse between two human beings shall not be deemed as a crime," part of the bill states.

Hopefully, the rest of the bill clarifies that it is "consensual" anal sexual intercourse that is not deemed a crime and that it is still illegal to sodomize someone who is not consenting.
