Gentelmen, The government appears to have its priorities crossed here. Give me a break!!!! Employ this energy on other bigger things!!! Illegal imigration, drug smuggling, terrorists. It's easy to bust on the all American pastime, Isn't it??? After all it's culture for those of you who can remember what it means. Yes!!! Uncultured swines out there. Oh!! "Poor animals" They appear to have more rights than peaple have today!! Animals are made to serve man!!! Not all the way around!! Get real people!!! When is this country is going to learn??? It's easy to bake this one and get credit for it, Anyways we are not dealing with hard core criminals here!! Just Joe American who believes his culture is worth something. I don't want to insult anyone, but enough is enough!! get a life, catch the real crime shit bags out there. Stop the Bull SHHHHT!! And fight real crime,Stop padding yourselves on the back and go do real police work, You need it!! The American people do too!!! Thank you for the read, God Bless the real Americans!!!

I don't know how I feel about this whole thing, but I do have one question: If you look at the cover of the Edmonson News this week they have a picture of the alleged building where all this was going on. It looks like a freakin' WALMART! They didn't build this thing overnight which means it has been there for a while, and anyone who lives in Edmonson County knows that any building this size is not going to go unnoticed, so why bust them now? I don't understand it. There has to be something going on behind the scenes.

You know theres something going on behind the scenes.I would guess that a certain organization finally found a place in ky,were they could buy the local police out.They tried in eastern ky but had no luck,thanks to some true blue reps.This is a sickness that has swept across our nation and it seems as if ky has the only gov. reps that still believes in america and freedom.It may be this certain organization my have found them a rat to eat their cheese,we will have to wait and see.

Cock,I think you took me wrong.The sickness that i have spoke of is communism.Right now here in ky the HSUS is telling their lies and trying to force their views through, in a state were people dont want it.Their trying to do this before our state gets the livestock board put together,because they know once ky does this the HSUS will have no power in ky.Right now we have some good reps in office here in ky.They are looking out for what their people here in ky really want,and not what a rich lobby group wants.The HSUS had mason dixion do a survay earlier in the year about making cockfighting a felony in ky.They only ask people in louisville,and only 600 people.There is alot more rural people in ky than urban and a hell of alot more than 600.Ky people dont care if people are fighting chickens,ky people care about education,FREEDOM,getting our drug problem taken care of,and JOBS.Joni Jenkins of louisville cares more about sending cockfighters to our over crowded jails,and making sure your dog is on a four foot leash,than any of the things I posted.

People in Ky, you better continue doing just as you are, continue your fight and now that H$U$ is combing the mountainside looking for gamefowl. They will do anything to cause problems. The dam problem in the rest of the states is these art's are running our government. These nut's are spending so much money trying to protect animals and who really protects and preserves animals is the farmers, horse people, hunters,fishermen, and yes the "Cockers" or cockfighters as some of you like to call people. This lobbying groups are destroying our country piece by piece. I hope Feld entertainment takes every penny that H$U$ has then these sorry animal nuts will be without.

I beg your pardon, pay off who? I beleive you have backwards, the H$U$ does the paying, and others have there rights striped!!! I'm sick and tired of this bs, Everytime someone talks about fighting gamefowl people bring up slavery, and how "We have evolved" you dumb asses you don't compare gamefowl to people. You art nuts, you better be glad I'm not running this nation, I'd send everyone of you on a long boat ride, and did I mention you would never return. The Forefathers or my Forefathers, and the likes of Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, and Frankiln would have had you shot if there had been a H$U$ in those times. You are destroying this nation and the rights of many generations.

Here is the thing people down cock fighting with out really even knowing what it is. One of our famous former Presidents of the USA got his nickname from this sport some of us like. Abe Lincoln was called "Honest Abe" do you know why? Not because he freed the slaves, but because he was an honest and fair cock fighting referee. He called it how he seen it. He never played the game of "favorites", so the fellow cock fighters of his time started the nickname that we know him by, good ole "Honest Abe". Bet you people that sit and look down on us that enjoy the cock fights did not know that. The man that ran our country so many years ago was doing exactly what we are doing today. Letting two roosters get down, may best one win. These chickens are going to do this with or without us. IT IS GENETIC!!!!!!!! When I first got in to the sport with my husband I didn't think that I was going to like it but turns out I don't only like it I love it. These birds get treated better than some humans do. Do you people not understand that? Cock fighting isn't like a dog fight. You don't have to train and teach the game fowl how to fight as you would a dog. Why are they wasting tax dollars to bust in on a cockfight when there is children being raped,and people being murdered. I guess since the government is not able to make any money of the cock fight itself it's wrong for us to do it. They don't think about the revenue that we are bringing in to the county by staying at the motels, eating at the restaurants, buying gas at their fueling stations etc.. Every one needs to get over it when one shuts down another one opens. It has been going on for so many years it will never be stopped.
