I expect horse racing and rodeo were left out of this bill intentionally. A more narrow scope would give it more likely success of passing. Would I be disappointed that a rodeo or horse race got canned as well? Nope. Because this is a relatively specific thread, i won't open up a tirade on either of those event, but I have one for each if you'd really like to hear it. Not once. Barry and I both have made posts saying we recognize the loons @ PETA. The closest I can come to seeing them being "discounted" is Zippy focusing the conversation along the lines of "It isn't whether PETA sucks, it's whether Ringling sucks." Unless I've missed a post or forgotten a passage within, nobody has suggested PETA is completely sane. This is in large, the mentality that requires passage of some sort of litigation. Whether it be Jim Moran's or one down the road. Right. Back when were (are) ignorant of the needs of other living things. We use to put people with deformities or other maladies on parade as well. All of the above are out-of-date and with any fortune at all, animals in circus will be a thing of the past in the very near future. And again, the same generic argument that this entire episode, as well as everyone concerned is a member of PETA or a similar institution. It's been addressed as false, and it's still false. Add in an irrational argument about how animal extremists (again with PETA references) want to take away seeing eye dogs and or your personal pets and we paint everyone with the same brush (again) who favors passage of this bill.
