    House bans eating of cats, dogs
    Source: CBS News

    The government shuts down at the end of the month, and Democrats and Republicans seem unable to make a deal to keep it open. They are, however, united in trying to stop people from eating pets.

    The House passed a bill Wednesday by voice vote banning the slaughter, transportation, sale and possession of dogs and cats for consumption. The "Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act of 2018" was sponsored by Republican Rep. Vern Buchanan and Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings, both of Florida.

    Buchanan wrote in his statement about the bill that 44 states do not have laws banning consumption of cats and dogs, adding that this practice "should be outlawed completely given how beloved these animals are for most Americans." California, Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan, New York and Virginia are the six states that explicitly ban cat and dog consumption.

    I think it's a good bipartisan bill, but WTF with my state not having a law against it?

    Doesn't sound like it covers doing it for home consumption, so we're still good if the Democratic Socialists ever get control of the economy.

    Awesome bill and glad it passed.
    However, we all know Obama's not going to like that one bit (Both the nature of the bill, and that Democrats and Republicans united to pass it after he worked so hard to make them see each other as blood enemies).

    If the Dems ever get control I plan on eating the rats my cats catch. After they destroy the economy we will finally have another use for rats, other than running mazes.
    Liberals! The real fascists.

    Another fine example of "this is what you morons are worried about" from our great leaders in DC. Reminiscent of the legends that as Constantinople was being marched on by the Ottoman army, the government and church officials were busy arguing about whether angels are male or female.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.

    That was my first thought when I saw this story. Strange priorities, but the morons in DC are doing the happy dance because they acted in a bipartisan manner on this "important" issue...
