Sex & God & Rock & Roll
Why does this not surprise me? I had received a Humane Society Report on this bill with a complete report on the twelve worst puppy mills in the state of Missouri. His presentation would have been more effective, however, if instead of showing all of those cute, plump happy puppies, he had shown the photos of the starving, feces coated miserable dogs that were in the Humane Society Report. I sat and cried while I read it. I also thought about how outraged Sen. Byrd would have been. He would have probably rammed through Federal legislation by now if he had seen it, just like he did over dog fighting. He had a way of making those who would abuse pets or who would vote against protecting them sound exactly like the un-American, sick, low-life scum they are.
What you have to understand, MP, is that "Republicans" and other "Conservatives" in the US are opposed to the government meddling in people's private business and lives.Unless, of course, you want to marry someone who is of the same sex.
Or smoke in a bar or even on the street in some places. Or walk across the road when the light is red. Or marry two or more wives. Or partake of recreational drugs etc. etc.However, you are allowed to get a load of your family, including the kids, together and stand near cemeteries where young people are being buried shouting that God is pleased that they died.It's a really strange place America. Even after five years of daily contact with the US I still haven't worked out the meaning of the word "freedom" when used by Americans.
