You must be a female to love COCK fighting so much. Michael Vick is the wrong color so he had to go to prison.

And long ago, but wish it were LONGER ago, men took their sons to lynchings to show them the way of MEN... I am a Southerner and regret that all of us are judged by those of you who are so ignorant. Those who were part of the cross-burnings, the lynchings, and now the dog fights and the cock fights. Do you want to know the difference between the Pro Wrestlers and Cockfighting? The Wrestlers have complete freedom of choice and the intellect to decide if they enter the ring. Comparing cockfighting to eating meat is ridiculous...it's like comparing child porn to the child beauty pagents. I don't like eating meat and I don't like child beauty pagents, but I don't see that either crosses the line into ABUSE like cockfighting and pornography. Furthermore, cockfighting does teach young people to be insensitive to watching death and blood-letting. Find something more constructive for your family.

Republicans may think McCain won but going on National tv in front of millions of viewers from the US and foreign leaders and not one but twice declare that the US does not abide by the Geneva Convention and tortures prisoners. John McCain just gave every country in every war the green light to torture US Military POWS. If you think McCain won I disagree, A US Senator just verified that the US tortures POWS twice in the debate.

WTF! Some people are huge hipocrites. People fight people, cocks, fish, all kinda stuff, but Micheal Vick is now some heartless animal because his cousin fights dogs. What makes dogs better than people or even roosters?

Most dogs have more sense than a lot of people and are very loyal, for just a little to eat and pat on the head.

Can't ya'll idiots that want to ban cock fighting is there not already enough people in this world to stop instead of trying to stop cock fighting. Cock fighting is a tradition handed down from generation to generation. I've been going to cock fights every since i was 4 years old. I mean a cock fight can bring in hundreds of people every saturday. Think about how much money the govt. could make off of that. So go find something else to try to stop besides cock fighting
Yes, we need people to pay to watch the fighting, killing, bombing that goes on all over the world. Tax money could be spend on soldiers coming home without legs and arms. Good idear. sir

deo vindice- you prove yourself a cowardly, blood thirsty- psychopath to say animal lovers don't work to better the lives of animals- but instead, you say- to put restrictions on cowardly, blood thirty psychopaths as you- who proudly delight in watching the blood of the innocent spill- which is a sic sadistic mind.

If you were not the coward you present yourself to be- then you would have already been taping those razors to "your own wrists" and fighting with another man as you force roosters to do- you can not deny this truth!

<quoted text> You want to know what I find repulsive ! ABORTION, HOMOSEXUALITY, PORN, CHILD MOLESTERS, DRUGS, WAR, MURDERS, CHILD ABUSE things of this nature. A chicken has no rights, not even close to rights that humans have, My right to fight gamefowl over rides a chickens right period. You have a right to your opinion BUT you have no Right to tell me what is moral or immoral or what is right or wrong! I look forward to this coming before the State politicians again, it will be defeated again.
That you find abortion and homosexuality is repulsive you prove your blood thirty self a devil worshipping churcher- for first you don't give a rat's ass about abortion- this abortion pretense is the church's way to hide her hatred of abused and murdered children-

and hear this loud and clear- since homosexuals are not torturing and killing humans or animals- for blood sport- as you are doing; then what they are doing is between them and God: NOT between YOU and God;- thus it is not your buisness what they do- at least they don't force the spilling of innocent blood for the delight in watching the innocent suffer!

Uh.. they are already torturing US prisoners..or dont you think that cutting of thier heads, or leacing them dead on the side of the road qualifies as that???
Maybe if they realize that they to could be tortured, or even lose thier heads, they might be alittle more less likely to continue as they are.

why do you think Louisiana comes out on the bottom of the list. Worst, wortt state. Along with cock fighting get rid of all the old policans, and start over with new ones. Might get 1 out of 100 new policitcans that are half way honest. New ones every four years. Then join the 21st century.

Well cock fighting has been around for many generations and has been passed down for generations. I dont see how it is inhumane when they are territorial creatures and when the owner cares, nurtures, and gives it the best feed it can have to the roosters. Its what they do they are territorial creatures and whats inhumane is when the humane society come in and kill all the birds now thats humane. Now should we kill all the teritorial animals in the wild such as lions, sharks, foxs, coons, cheetahs, jaguars, and now thats just a few that teritorial animals think about the many others you would have to kill just because they are teritorial. And for all you animal right activist this sport brings BIG revunue to the state of Lousiana.

Sense the coment was made from the high class folks from up north that wants to stop cockfighting they made the coment that the people from south La. were savages and crazy to do such things as cockfighting. If you'll don't like what is going on in South La.stay your a---- away from down here and let us live our lives like we want to .
