    MANILA, Philippines - This is in reaction to the letter of Rebecca S. Walsh, an American citizen from Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. (Inquirer, 5/31/07) She says cockfighting is for "bullies." Bully in my dictionary means a person coercing others by force, somebody who persecutes or oppresses by force or by threat. I vehemently disagree with her. I love cockfighting, though I am not a big bettor.
    Allow me to take up the cudgels for my countrymen and fellow cockfighting aficionados. Cockfighting has been in our beloved country since time immemorial. It is already part of our Filipino culture. It runs in our blood.
    Cockfighting is legal here. In fact, there are so many game fowl associations here, in Luzon, the Visayas and Mindanao. Many people come here just to watch big derbies and enjoy it. Is it wrong to make people happy? Is it wrong to like cockfighting as a hobby, as I do? I bet Walsh herself has her own hobby.

    Hi guys. The extreme popularity of online casinos has led to the opening of many such establishments in the network. On the one hand, a large selection is always good, but on the other, it has become more difficult to make the right choice https://casinoanalyser.com/hi-lo/live. With many options at your disposal, it’s hard to determine which ones are worth playing and which ones are best avoided. Perhaps I should check out the blacklist of online casinos to find out which casinos should be avoided? What do you think?

    Re: Reaction: Cockfighting a hobby, not a game for bullies

    I'm from South Carolina and I didn't get into cockfighting until 4 years ago with my boyfriend. He's been doing this his entire life and forefathers were cockfighting in our nation's capital and on the front lawn of our Washington's White House. You don't train these birds how to fight it's in their blood and I for 1 will tell her to mind her business and if she thinks cockfighting is bullying what does she think of our government who are trying to take away our 2nd Amendment Right to bare arms. I mean their the real bullies here. We are only doing what has been passed down for generations from our ancestors and if you can let humans get in a ring and box and fight and get paid millions of dollars and get for the fighter/boxer of your choice and their being trained to do it what is wrong with letting God's nature do things their way. Oh maybe she believes We all came from monkeys. Either way if our game fowl were in nature running free but Oh OUR GOVERNMENT WON'T ALLOW THAT EITHER YEP LEASH LAWS EVEN FOR THE BIRDS but if they were free what would they all have to grip about then? I say if you own your land and homes and cars why do we the people have to abide by other peoples rules. They don't they do as they damn well please. So if anyone earns the title of or as a BULLY let's cast out our stones to see who'll stand or run. That's my opinion y'all might not agree some may but I at least defended my right of freedom of speech. Peace and God Bless

    Thumbs up Re: Reaction: Cockfighting a hobby, not a game for bullies

    when the conguistadores came in 1521 the pilipinos
    were already into it fighting against the chinese
    from the boat of limahong !!!

    sabong is not just a hubby for the pilipinos it is
    a source of income and a cultural heritage....

    during the dictatorship of MARCOS someone
    in his cabinet suggested to ban sabong and
    marcos said no! do you want a revolution ?

    the spanish imposed taxes in our cockpits a
    long time ago and some say this started the
    revolution of that time...

    MITRA lost his bid for the presidency 'they say
    the humanist chose ramos and put in their
    support for him.'

    WHY? 'they say that it was because of mitras
    support for american cockfighters'

    it was during this time that LANDO LUZONG
    and I started talking about putting up ' BANTAY
    SABONG ' JUST in time... because the animal
    lovers staged a rally against cockfighting during
    the opening of the world slasher derby of course
    they could not stopped the derby....

    lando luzong is still very active with bantay sabong
    organization... am just on stand by...

    everything is looking good for us sabongeros but
    we can not be complacent this is our cultural
    heritage.

    " one life time is not enough to learn about
    gamefowl breeding". it is like a vast universe
    what can come out will never cease to amaze us".
