Running naked on the beach maybe, prairies nah!!!!

Curiously enough, there is also a petition to legalize cockfighting in the U.S.:
https://unofc.wordpress.com/petition-to-legalize-cockfighting-in-the-u-s/
3680 people signed that petition.

This makes me think that people would sign just about anything. There was recently a report about a petition to remove the First Amendment from the U.S. Constitution. The petition was circulated at some Ivy League college, and generated a lot of signatures.

People will sign anything to make themselves feel good about something.

But when it comes to them actually putting sweat into it, they are nowhere to be seen.

My issue is with an alleged senator that supports a bill but doesn't have the balls to stand up in public and support their position and convictions.

That is not acceptable behavior for an elected official.

Exactly

So that somehow minimizes the importance of signing and sharing the petition, itself? Sign or not but cut the crap. Sick of it.

Alana, YOU are the one that used the alleged support of a senator as the carrot to getting people to sign the petition.

There is no carrot in this case.

While it's true that there is a senator willing to sponsor the bill, I am sorry I ever mentioned it since you insist on making such a big FRIGGING deal out of it. I didn't realize the uncalled for nonsense that would ensue. I was excited. It is not my announcement to make as to whom the senator is. It should be good news that there actually is someone willing. This is not the first go around with trying to have cockfighting fighting in the VI banned. It may not be the last but it's better to try than to do absolutely nothing. It took decade to get an animal cruelty bill paused but people didn't give up the first time.

You either help or hinder which is what you're doing. Give it a rest.

Mystery Senator in the wings willing to sponsor a bill to ban cockfighting IF they can get enough signatures.

Identity will remain secret if not enough signatures are attained.

I'm not making this up folks. 😉

I never said "IF!"
You're the one that's taking it out of context and making it a big deal about signing a petition to ban the brutal and cruel sport of cockfighting. Help, stop hindering.

More signatures are better!
Did you sign the petition?

If so, thank you!
If not, stfu!

I had to look it up.

The Southern Tenant Farmers' Union (STFU) was founded in 1934 as a civil farmer's union to further organize the tenant farmers in the Southern United States.

Nice language Alana.

I am free to express my doubt they any senator has promised to sponsor a bill to ban cockfighting.

Not signing either. Especially a bill that takes choice from women.
