4humanrights--"1. Legalizing Cockfighting is the only way to save the Gamecock from EXTINCTION. THE ONLY WAY"

Lie. There are plenty of ways to save a species from extinction that do not require they fight to the death.

"2. It promotes brother hood, Rich Poor, Black White, Christian non Christian, Man Woman, Young old, American non-American."

That's idiocy. There are literally thousands of ways to do this that don't involve torture of animals.

"3. Legalized Cockfighting would bring in millions in taxes, permits, and licenses, the money could go to social programs to take care of the elderly, children, disabled, Etc."

So would legalizing the hunting of human beings, legalizing prostitution, strip shows at the Arts Festival, there's all kinds of ways to "bring in tax money" that are stupid and destructive.

"4. Legalizing Cockfighting would produce thousands more jobs like family run feed stores, hotel, gas stations, restaurants, farmers, Etc."

That's just out and out untrue. Even if we do go back to the stone ages and legalize this brutality nowhere CLOSE to the number of people will be involved to "produce thousands of jobs."

"5. Legalized Cockfighting would put Human life and livelihoods above that of a chicken"

Lie. It does not lift human life to devalue the life of an animal.

"6. Legalizing Cockfighting would free up the police force, the public defenders offices, and the judicial system, all of these resources could be better utilized pursuing and prosecuting violent offenders."

These are violent offenders. Want to free up law enforcement? Stop breaking the law.

"7. Legalizing Cockfighting would better serve the whole poultry industry, It would let the vast number of Cockers work with the USDA, State Agriculture departments, medical and poultry science departments to find better ways of disease control, In genetics research and the overall health in all poultry."

That's absolute lunacy. If you really think this is about what's best for chickens...let's just say you're fooling nobody with this.

"8. It can’t be prevented: There’s a reason it’s called “one of the world’s oldest sports”. It’s always been around, it always will be. We might as well use it."

Murder's always been around. That's a lame excuse. It isn't a sport, and claiming "it always will be around" is false. It's disappearing. Thank God.

"9. The laws are arbitrary and hypocritical: It’s okay to fish, hunt, trap, falconry, and to kill unborn babies."

As for the other issues, there MIGHT be some small legitimacy except that fishing, hunting, etc aren't nearly as cruel to the animal prior to death.

As for your BS about "unborn babies," there is no such thing. An embryo is not a baby. Trying to tie your right to torture animals to denying reproductive choice rights to women is a ridiculous straw man argument.

"10. They are private property Period!"

So are horses. And if you torture a horse, you belong in jail. Same with any other animal.

HISTORY LESSON ON ANIMAL RIGHTS AND TYRANNY
Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
Hitler's Nazi Germany was marked by a preoccupation with "animal rights." Hitler's Third Reich passed numerous animal protection laws, such as declaring that shoeing a horse was cruel, and declared an end to dissection. This reduced Man’s status to that of animals, and justified treating men as animals. Before the war was ended, the Nazis stepped up experiments on the best way to castrate a Jew without anesthesia, and turned countless men, women and children into lampshades and soap. These Nazi actions were justifiable by their belief that it was possible to "...increase the moral standing of animals and decrease the moral standing of people, thus integrating human characteristics to animals... elevating animal life to the level of cult worship...which would lead to the spiritual and ideological changes necessary... for a new national identity."
The real political objective of “animal rights” is to eliminate "unalienable rights," and to make way for all these other supposed rights and pervert our Bill of Rights to the point where only the perverted are protected. A favored socialist strategy is to separate the population from common sense and its own laws by bringing about chaos, clouding real issues, then bring about “change” through gradual “legislation from within.” Ruling by planned crisis is the favored method, as this short-circuits the brain’s ability to think and reason clearly about true issues. This planned chaos (such as “animal cruelty,”“puppy mills” and “cock fighting”) is designed to rob the nation of its creativity and life force, degrade human existence, make everything seem uncontrollable and bad, which then allows the introduction of a tyrannical form of government.
The Gestapo was first used by Goring to do away with political opponents. A "temporary" state of emergency was declared after the Reichstag fire, but was never rescinded. This allowed the Gestapo to enforce conformity at every level of society. Block wardens monitored their neighbors, and children were recruited to inform on their teachers and parents. The Gestapo was authorized to hold people in "protective custody" which was really arbitrary arrest and imprisonment. At first, only political prisoners were taken under the guise of "preventive protective custody" and placed in SS-controlled concentration camps; later, anyone was hunted down and taken who was deemed to not fit in with SS and Gestapo vision of a perfect Aryan society.("SS" came from Schutzstaffel which means "elite guard").
Today we see this same conduct and set of circumstances appearing in some of our civic institutions. The only way for one man to achieve dominion and control over another is through the darkness of IGNORANCE. Let’s get educated about our own laws, so that tyranny cannot gain a foothold in America, and so that we can once again have “happiness and good government flowing forth” as paraphrased by all our early education laws. We do have some beautiful laws. Let’s learn them, and insist that our civic institutions obey them for the good of our nation. God Bless America.

"10. They are private property Period!"
Torture is when u inflict pain/death Against their WILL!
u need to stop taking ur anti-dep drugs, mushrooms or drugs that make u think horses , dogs, humans are chicken? u eat horses or humans?
americans & I eat KFC chicken in tons daily..u must be a communist horse/dog eater...
Facts: when gamechickens hit maturity, even without a knife attached on their legs, it will KILL another male rooster...it's how God created them.
So are horses. And if you torture a horse, you belong in jail. Same with any other animal.

So is it still legal to have the birds if you don't fight them? Honestly I think they are beautiful birds. I think the last time I saw one it was called a Richardson or something like that.:)

A Lawrence County jury acquitted five men charged with cockfighting.

They also tried arguing that since a chicken doesn't have four legs and fur, it's not an animal - so animal abuse charges wouldn't make sense.
Now that argument makes perfect sense in Okieland.
Okies are so dumb they'd easily believe this defense.
It would still be OK to kill Muslim chickens though.
They have no souls, unlike the true Christian ones.

My New Call to Action has been posted on my Website ( www.franklosey.com ).

Slowly but surely, my past Calls to Action have helped to "persuade" 27 Members of Congress to send Congressional Inquiries either to the IRS, or to the Treasury's Inspector General, or to Justice Department Attorneys. Their inquiries have expressed the concerns of their constituents that the IRS has failed to enforce the U.S.Tax Code against the HSUS because the HSUS has ignored the prohibitions placed on public charities not to engage in excessive lobbying and not to engage in prohibited campaign activities such as opposing or endorsing candidates for election. While tax-exempt organizations are permitted to engage in a limited amount of lobbying, there is a threshold that has been far, far exceeded by the HSUS.

Several of those 27 Members of Congress are now concerned about the lack of "timeliness" on the part of the IRS because the IRS told them as far back as three years ago that its "ongoing examination program" of the activities of all tax-exempt, public charities would consider such things as the 3,000+ pages of documents that I have submitted to the IRS -- these documents incriminate the HSUS! That is why a few Members of Congress are beginning to be receptive to the idea that a Congressional Oversight Hearing should occur. And that is why I believe that the timing is right for a major push that would generate Tens of Thousands of E-Mails from all over the U.S. to the 535 Members of Congress that would urge them to support a Congressional Oversight Hearing.

I would appreciate if you would consider helping to get the word out in the effort to cumulatively generate a Tsunami-Like Wave of E-Mails to 535 Members of Congress.

Have a Great Weekend!

If it was the fight between 2 near dead roosters would be ended brfore the chickens got into the sad,near death situation that iscalled a sport. the 2 roosters are usually forced to fight to the death, at least fights I have seen. after a fight the loosing roosters is usually pulled off or killed in some other way. and the cost of healing badly injured rooster is to costly and time consuming. So he is put to death. dog fighting is the same, no difference. afer all these animals will fight to their death. for some good entainment why not let the egislator fight in the place of the chickens MAY BE THROW IN ANOTHER LEGISLATOR. pROBABLY SOME GOOD ENTERTAINMENT AND LARGE BETS PLACE.

2010 HSUS Form 990

This is the Form 990 (tax return) filed by the Humane Society of the United States for the tax year 2010. It was filed with the IRS on September 2, 2010. At 146 pages, this tax return covers most financial aspects of HSUS, and provides accounting details unavailable anywhere else.

According to this tax return, less than 1 percent of the HSUS budget in 2010 consisted of grants to real “humane societies” and other hands-on pet shelter groups in the United States.

Here are some other highlights:

Total revenue:$148.7 million
Total expenses:$126.4 million
Net assets as of December 31, 2009:$187.5 million
Fundraising expenses:$24.3 million
Salaries and benefits:$36.2 million
Pension contributions:$2.6 million
Total grants to other groups:$5.3 million
Grants to ballot-initiative political front groups:$1.75 million
Funds passed through to the HSUS-affiliated “Humane Society International”:$1.7 million

Custer this comment just goes to show why this country is going to hell. First off did you know that the chicken is exempt from the humane slaughter act of 1958, the reason is they are not as aware of what's going on such as say a pig, horse, dog, etc...Also that the only documented study ever done on cockfighting proves that cockfighters are law abiding, God fearing, honest hard working Americans, also that they do not do it for the gambling they do to maintain a breed of gamefowl (American cocker 1974 to 1991 ). Cockfighting is over 3000 years old and to say it isn't part of our cultural heritage is just stupid. Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln & several of our forefathers all was involved with gamefowl. The HSUS argues that slavery was once part of our heritage also but to compare African Americans to a chicken is a bold & also very racial statement. Another study proves that gamefowl are NOT forced to fight they do it naturally to the death with or without human interference. All these felony states are putting chickens above human life, we as Americans have the rights to defend our life, liberty & property with force & yet we don't do anything violent just because we as cockers see hope in our legislature. Ask your self this, if cockfighters are so violent why don't they burn buildings down and threaten human lives like the HSUS & PETA members do? I'll tell you why cockfighting has always been a gentleman's sport so we'll leave the violence to the real criminals. To say that we as cockfighters should put knives on & openly kill each other is the lamest thing I have ever herd. Most cockfighters have fought against humans in every conflict America has had, so how many battles have you been in? How many months have you not seen your family? And now we that protected this country with our lives are all of a sudden being put in prison and barred as criminals. The government trains killers but that's ok? People like you make me sick, you set back and judge something you have no idea about, we cockfighters have seen prejudice, discrimination and to loose ones rights is very hard.
Thank you for your time,
J.C.
