The way I see it, animals have no rights whatsoever; not animal rights, not civil rights, not legal rights, none, nada, zip. Human beings do have responsibilities when it comes to animals. They are a gift to us from the creator and we must treat them as such. Its pretty simple, even if your god is money.
MSNBC has run a story about animal rights activists targeting Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, they have a poll along with this story, at this point the animal rights folks are winning this poll, it seems you can only vote once so please vote NO and forward widely so we can show how much support rodeo has, here is the link: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25725545/
Rodeo is not a cruel sport.
Please vote against this new rights agenda.
Go to a Rodeo and see for yourself if possible.
I don't find anything wrong with rodeos at all. The danger and excitement reflects and intensifies the everyday world, with its everyday risks and rewards. I feel the same way about the bullfight.
Even if the rodeo isn't your style, don't you think its worth a little effort to tell the animal rights spoilsports that most folks don't agree with them? The rodeo, or something like it, is a popular tradition in cattle and horse country everywhere.
Vote to save the Rodeo. Check out Texas Fred's 'related' video,
