Graves Votes to Support Dogfighters Like Vick


Everyone hates dog fights, especially the dogs. The public outcry over Michael Vick and his dog fighting operation is entirely justified.

Everyone, but Congressman Sam Graves. The Humane Society organized a protest outside of Graves office in Liberty (where Jeff Roe is the democratically elected auditor). Graves voted against the Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act, the majority of Republicans voted for this bill. Even President Bush signed this law.

What is Sam doing besides listening to Jeff Roe? Both are out of touch with the nation and N.W. Missouri farmers. Time to elect Kay Barnes.

OK, everybody (sane) is against dog-fighting. Also chicken-fighting. And I'm not that big a fan of boxing.

That is true even if the dogs are bred to like doing it -- as these are. Or the chickens.

However, not everything distasteful needs to be the subject of Federal criminal prosecution. Our emotional response to the Vick case demonstrates two things: First, we find it difficult to distinguish between faithful Ol' Yeller and a vicious killing machine that would likely eat your child, i.e. a real pit bull. Second, we are easiy distracted from real issues like Iraq and the Justice Department scandal by the combination of celebrity (Vick) and "pets".

Locking Vick up with a few of his hungry dogs might be justice. But this case is just diversion. And, given all the bad votes Graves has made that could rightly be called cruelty to humans, cruelty to pit bulls is one of the least reasons to replace him. On a long list.

Sorry, but sometimes genteel language must be thrown aside for the purpose of clarity:

Cocks fight and chickens lay.

It had to be said otherwise we invite the intelligent design crowd to come in and take liberties with the scientific method.

Two years passed, I still remembered the scene of fighting against wolves in Tir Chonaill with friends, sharing fruit which was got by our mabinogi gold around a fire, fishing in a clean pond. Players will have five seconds freezed to make their own preparation, when the fight beings, win or lose, it depends on your own cheap mabinogi. Here is some mabinogi money I took months ago; I was the guy wielding a thick sword. And I know it is rude enough to beat a woman. But, we can use some mabinogi online gold to edit some dates in the setup menu to change the clothes we wear. As a kind of fantastic online game, I think Mabinogi is more similar to comic and need to buy mabinogi gold.

I guess that except this way, I must lose my some flyff penya. He said that I should level a little bit more and told me that I can go to buy flyff penya to improve my character. That thought slipped flyff money away pretty fast while I was training and chatting with my guild mates. I did not think of what I thought was fun before getting flyff gold that thought in my head. If you think a game is looking lame, try it before you say it out loud, you might like it to make some cheap penya.
