USDA APHIS Pitches A Knuckle Ball – Anybody Know Who Can Find Somebody To Catch It???

WASHINGTON, D.C.  –  Round and round and round she goes,  and where she lands, nobody knows.

On Day 55 of the 60 day Comment Period on the Federal Regulation to remove the “Pads and Chains” and abolish “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty,  here’s where the ball landed on the roulette wheel:

The Lickers wanted a 60 day extension, to kill off U. S. AG SEC Tom Vilsack’s move to remove the “Pads and Chains” and abolish the “Big Lick”.

Instead,   after having heavy hitters like elderly Republican Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), along with turncoat Tennessee Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) weigh in for it, the Lickers only got a 30 day extension.

Sixty days were a death sentence for the Federal Regulation.

Thirty days are not.

Nephew Eugene is scratching his head as to what the following issued by APHIS Deputy Administrator Mr. Kevin Shea means:

It talks about several things including:

  • Trotting,
  • Up to Two Years Old,
  • Keg shoes.

Here, please take a read:

If those government people would kindly come down here to Theta in Northern Maury County,  Tennessee,  and sit on this front porch for about 30 minutes,  we could tell them how to write this goldarned thing where everybody could understand it.

Nephew Eugene especially wonders what USDA APHIS Administrator Mr. Kevin Shea did before he became a bureaucrat?

Former Deputy APHIS Administrator Dr. Chester Gipson, when the occasion demanded it, could “speak in mumbles”.  No one has ever done it better.

And somehow,  Dr. Gipson has taught Administrator Kevin Shea to “write in mumbles”.
