Cockfighting is one of the few truly American Institutions left to us by our forefathers. It is as old and respected as the very greek games at the coliseum that it is based upon. History has shown us that God created animals solely for 3 purposes and three purposes alone...
1. To Devour amidst spices and other vegetable based broths
2. To teach us and our children the meaning of friendship, love, and family, in disney films
3. To invoke our ancestry, educate us on the meaning of determination and the merit of battling for supremacy in a chicken wire arena as we watch in delight
Let us all be forward thinking people? How can Abortion, Cigarettes, and prostitution (in Nevada) be legally sanctioned if not government funded; yet we as a people cannot seek the answer to the eternal questions that marr us when we have two or more beasts of burdens beneath our watch?
I submit to you that LIFE itself, is but one largely over-rated cockfight. The chicken wire that binds us to the battle is our families, our jobs, our social dispositions. The seed that fuels our violent mission is religion, propaganda, and self righteousness....and we are the proud if not willing participants.
Each time everyone of you awakens and reports to a job where you are overworked and underpaid while the less fortunate starve on the outskirts of Oteen....you have just participated in a cock fight. When you went to the senior prom and tried to get to second base in the back-seat of your Ford Escort only to realize that another man's filthy brow has already been where you lay claim to go...you have just lost a bitterly contested cock fight.....and the moment when you slink down the aisle to marry a woman who will mutate into a lecherous creature whose delight originates solely from knowing that you are trapped into a life wrought with a series of benign excercises in empty gestures of affection and meaningless showcases of allegiance...well my friends...that is the largest and most vicious cockfight of them all.
We as a people have become so hippocritical. I am tired of it...weary of the sickening games. When I am ushered into the Governors office and I take control of this great state, the first executive order I shall lay pen to paper upon is a universally sanctioned public cockfighting arena paid for by N.C tax dollars.
Have we not endured enough in this life that we cannot afford ourselves this one fleeting pleasure?
