Well now, I can see the fine upstanding values you are able to teach. You make a difference? You have no idea. Your replies to every one who posts shows how better you are then everyone. I am pleased that you honor me with your sage words in such a reply. You must be working hard to not only teach the "special needs children" how to start the abuse with animals that can not speak out, I am sure you also promote them to do such to each other also.

@USA R0CKS
Thank you for telling the rest of us just who has rights and who does not. I must have missed the memo that you were the one to decide. I will be sure to check from now on.

When the two of you are done graceing us with your sage knowlegde, please remove your genetic markers from the gene pool.

THANKS!

In terms of how I believe it should be defined legally. I personally believe adultery can be dangerous to society while "abusing" a critter is not. I believe that only behaviors that are dangerous to society should be illegal. If you have a different opinion, that is great. You are entitled to it. I sincerely enjoy intelligent debate on this issue. Unfortunately you don't appear to be up to it. I sincerely wish you were smarter because then we could engage in intellectually stimulating discourse.

Sorry, but trying to have an intelligent conversation with an idiot who believes that animals have no rights is like a Texas high school graduation....short and consisting of one moron.

Well, I'm certainly smarter than you but that should come as no surprise.

Legally speaking, animals are property and do not have rights. that isn't my opinion. It is a fact. If you were smarter, we may be able to have a fruitful conversation. Thus far all you have been able to do is demonstrate your ignorance on the subject matter.

Animals have some protections, not rights.

Show us written law establishing that non-human animals have "rights".

As humans, we abuse our animals, our wives, our children... our environment.. and we still have way too much stupid left over as proven with the above posts.

What is wrong with people today? No heart. No brain. Sad.

Bite me. What gives you the right to attempt to determine the level of my intelligence?

I do not like abusers, and perhaps you should view a mirror. A big heart you say? Strange. Strange that you can profess to have such a big heart, yet the first thing you do is type a disrespectful post. Good job. Perhaps you should consider a career change.

People abuse people, animals, the environment all the time, and you further evidenced my belief with your post.

i think we have a winner. yes most people seem to have adopted the mushyheaded ethics, moral apathy and the steamroller philosophy of the corporate elite. no thinking necessary. people no longer possess the down to earth morals that they used to, it's all about greed, material excess and imaginary gain in todays change-a-minute, soundbite-driven world. so the solution is simple.

educate yourself.

do some basic research.

reject violence in all its forms.

seek compassion.

go vegan.

do it today.

We get it... you don't like abusers. Most folks don't. Yet all of this indignation and still no written law establishing that non-human animals have "rights".

The depth of the mentality you are referring to has no bounds. Spinning out of control .. people think nothing of beating a child or the elderly, skinning a live cat, or dog, cutting off a horses leg, maybe the head... for nothing but shear enjoyment.

It has to start in the homes.

It seems that we have laws regulating everything but morals.. we even have laws telling us where to spit, yet the laws all too often ignore the true needs of the ones that can not speak for themselves.

Animals in New York State ARE protected against abuse...hence the fact that the subject.

That is because morals are personal and subjective. Why should I adopt yours, or you mine?
