I was at this meeting last night. I feel like the tide is turning and next year could be the year we change the very outdated laws this state has for animal abuse. But it will only happen if we continue to show strength in numbers; there was a big crowd last night. Thanks to Assembly man Brindisi for organizing this program.

This surely would be a good thing to happen but I am sure it will be business as usual for those with a hookup. People forget to soon and things seem to vanish. Its the old stall and toss trick that gets us every time. Justice exists only in a dream world.
