Flimsy Sanity: Vick's Dog Killing

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Vick's Dog Killing

I think that Vick's killing of losing dogs was probably the only decent thing done in this whole fiasco. A dog conditioned to be so aggressive that it will attack and kill should probably not be allowed to bite the face off some kid. Hurting animals for fun is why we have rodeos (you would buck too if they strapped a band across your gonads) and bull fights.

Lucky for dogs and cats, people love them. If you really want to have your stomach churn, read how animals we slaughter every day are treated in life - especially pigs and chickens.

    I certainly wouldn't dare to defend Vick and his heinous acts, but I can only hope that the current round of outrage and activism is repeated the next time a horribly violent crime is perpetrated against any person or creature. Sadly, it's just because of his high profile status that this story has the legs it has. Too bad we just accept and ignore these things otherwise.

    Don't forget the "sport" of hunting.

    That's one of the reasons we're moving toward vegitarian meals. We already try to make sure we eat 3 veggie meals a week, and when we do eat meat, we try to make sure it's from a local farm or Whole Foods. Most of our food is organic, and EVERYTHING my son eats is organic.
