[New post] one big happy dog and phoney show

one big happy dog and phoney show

my bullshit meter is going off  like crazy lately... wonder much b.s. flying around, enough to fill all the gardens in the U.S.A.

Now all of these goings on in the media and in Congress is a big dog and phoney show (an elaborately staged performance, presentation, or event designed to sway or convince people. It is often used in reference to a series of informational events put on by a company or group or a derisive term for a small circus) aka

Pretending to be something you're not or doing something that you want people to think is important when it really isn't.

A dog and pony show is meant not to actually DO anything meaningful but to pretend something is being done which is the whole point of Vick's PR Image Rehab Express. Is it no wonder then that he and Pacelle spoke yesterday to Congress... people can pat themselves on the back and say good job... Vick's image brigade can go on reforming his IMAGE while his person remains as tarnished as ever.  And Congress can pretend that they are doing something against dog-fighting.  And Pacelle can pretend he cares about animals...Win win win.

Here is my problem with the legislation and the antique Vick road show...

Did they have the RESCUERS, ADOPTERS and people who take care of hurt, maimed, abused dogs or animals speak to Congress??? NO... people on the ground, in the field, who give their lives every day taking care of the animals hurt by dog fighting are the ones who are the REAL spokespeople... People from BadRap, Best Friends, Our Pack, and others, Knock Out Dog Fighting, folks who are SINCERELY making a difference...

OF COURSE NOT, duh, and children should NOT NOT NOT EVER be brought to barbaric animal fights. People that bring their children to dog fights should definitely be penalized and in my humble opinion sterilized. Have their kids taken away. But none of that is going to happen.

Kids learn by example. And if their parents engage in violence, then the kids learn by their parents actions not words. Even if their parents receive a fine, or go to jail, ok. But Vick's words are still bogus. Dog fighting is on the rise because they think Vick is cool and want to be like him. Do they listen to his insincere words? NO !  they listen his actions... arrogance, hey, I got away with murder and am making millions and all I have to do is give a few lame speeches and pretend that I am sorry and you can, too... just don't get caught...

this bill penalizes people who watch the fights instead of the top dogs, the dog fighters at the top, people like Vick with the real $$$ who put the dog fights on to begin with... it's like putting addicts in jail instead of going after the drug cartel, the drug dealers, the real criminals. Or let's penalize gamblers not casinos. What's wrong with that picture?  Millionaires protect other millionaires. They think we're suckers. Of course, Vick is on board with THAT... then the people that he associated with (who we all know were responsible for killing dogs not him, never him, although HE was the one who killed dogs with his bare hands and did horrific things to the dogs, it was his background, culture he grew up in and his friends who were really to blame for what HE HIMSELF did) so then his friends would have been fined and gone to jail not him... hey, that sounds pretty nifty, a good deal, a sweet deal for him, duh... plus he gets to look like he's actually doing something for animals and those who want to believe this kool aid do and the PR folk are happy and the NFL is happy and the REAL moneymakers are happy...

and so what if a few parents, kids and dogs get hurt in the process...   Vick tried, hah. Vick likes the idea of a few spectators getting penalized so does Nike, the NFL, Subway and so on down the line...  hold the wrong people accountable and the real criminals get off scot free, hey, who cares about a few parents, kids and dogs when you can make boatloads of money pretending you care about something you don't give a shit about???

Please vote on whether you think Vick is a good anti dog fighting spokesperson​chael-vick-asks-congress-to-cr​ackdown-on-spectators-at-anima​l-fights.html

and someone start a petition going after the REAL dog fighters at the TOP and have Vick NAME NAMES... now THAT would be DOING SOMETHING TRULY BENEFICIAL... and have Vick and Pacelle bring that to law enforcement and Congress... HAH !!!
