“BIG LICK” FRONTAL ASSAULT ON “SCAR RULE” GOES FULL BORE IN LETTERS TO THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE – LICKERS WANT “GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD” ON FIVE YEARS OF SCAR RULE VIOLATIONS

WASHINGTON, DC  –  The sore Big Lick interests ratcheted up its attack on the USDA’s enforcement of the  “Scar Rule”  with Minnesota attorney Phillip Kunkel‘s writing confrontational and accusatory letters to the USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack and Offices of Inspector General and General Counsel.

Mr. Kunkel attacked the USDA for not enforcing the “Scar Rule” in accordance with 2009 protocol, rather than utilize the development of the objective science of “Thermography” (Thermal Imaging) and “Iris Scanning”.  Attorney Kunkel also  wrote  letters in April 2014 protesting the USDA vigorously enforcing the “Scar Rule”. (Informed sources say that “Big Licker” money man Duke Thorson is funding Mr. Kunkel’s efforts on behalf of the Big Lickers)

The current Licker Attack started in January 2015 when  Congressman Scott Desjarlais  staffer appeared at a S.H.O.W. HIO DQP training session at the Celebration,  and questioned  Dr. Jeff Baker  on enforcement of the “Scar Rule”.

The session was filmed and a transcript prepared.  The current Licker Attack started in January 2015 when  Congressman Scott Desjarlais  staffer appeared at a S.H.O.W.

MR. KUNKEL SUMMARY POINTS CONTINUED:

  • Its ok to have “Scars” caused by the friction of the chain (action device) against the skin.
  • Mr. Kunkel describes obvious “Scars” as “Normal Changes To The Skin From The Friction Of The Action Device”

  • The Kunkel throws in the Mumbo Jumbo word “Due Process”  which makes no sense.

Normally,  Dr. Rachel Cezar would have been present at the January 2014 DQP Training Session, but she is expecting a child soon.    Dr. Cezar was threatened at the 2014 Celebration,  and one Facebook poster posted,    “Shank Rachel Cezar and let her see how if feels”¦”

The Big Licker Version Of “Whip Somebody’s Ass”

“Have You Ever Had One Of Those Days
when Nothing seems to Go just Right
your trainer Starts b***hen ’bout Whatever It Was he Was b***hen About Last Night
so You Escape Into that hot ass tackroom
Just To sip on some silver Patron
But After You finish yo drank, you see all the hot donuts are gone”¦

Well It’s A Great Day For Me To Whip Somebody’s Ass
It’s A Bad Day So You Better Get Off My Back
you Might Get Cold Cock ,If Dr. Baker crosses My Path
cuz It’s A Great Day For Me To Whip Somebody’s Ass

We Was Runnin Late For inspection
So I put on my show t shirt,
Its says “if my hoss just aint’ ready, don’t think I give it another squit”,
And when the Guvment man walked up, and he saw my shirt was a protesting display,  darn it he and that  Mexican gal  done shot me with the pepper spray.

Well It’s A Great Day For Me To Whip Somebody’s Ass
it’s A Bad Day  So get yo frickin camera off my back,
you Might Get Cold Cocked if them cat ladys Cross My Path
cuz It’s A Great Day For Me To Whip Somebody’s Ass

When I Finally got to the ring,
I missed the darn two minute clock
I ask Mike Inman, “what the hell?”
but still that class didn’t stop
so I jumped that forgetin rail,  wasn’t no guvment stoppin me,
Im gonna make me a big Billy Gray pass, before they slap my ass in jail,

Cuz It’s A Great Day For Me To Whip Somebody’s Ass
it’s A Bad Day So You Better Get off that track
you Might Get Cold Cocked when I round that south turn,
cuz  It’s A Great Day For Me To Whip Somebody’s Ass.”

MR. KUNKEL SUMMARY POINTS CONTINUED:

  • USDA is finding “Scar Rule” violations where none exist.
  • The USDA has intentionally and knowingly violated the constitutional due process rights of every owner, trainer and exhibitor in the Tennessee Walking Horse business.
  • Request for prompt investigation of all charges in the letters.
