    I'm thinking they only reply back if they agree with your stance on a particular issue.

    Well that would figure. I have an ear full for someone. I'm thinking I might have to buy a suit and some dress boots. Then I can march on down and talk face to face. I started getting email address' for them. You know I have to admit it is a little scary when you are thinking about putting your face and name out there for all to see. But! Some if not all of us are gonna have to do it......

    You will not hear anything back from this whether you support or oppose.

    Whiterooster,

    Gamecock owners across Oklahoma and Texas are stepping up, standing up and speaking up publicly and we are going very public. We're not hiding and we have nothing to be ashamed of. I am a farmer/rancher my livestock is gamecocks and you harvest gamecocks by allowing them to fight, the same method they've been harvested in for more than 3,000 years.

    No different than the cattlemen, swine farmers and commercial poultry industry. We each harvest our livestock in the method of harvest they've always been harvested by for traditional and/or commercial practices.

    I got a letter back in 3 days from my senator stating he will be opposing it. Wether it is comp. generated or not, it does mean his office has seen it and is responding to it.

    The only thing I am concerned with is having my words changed by the press. As far as the ***'$ coming after me. I could care less. I am not doing anything that violates any law. Unless they want to follow me on my bike and catch me speeding. But, they better stay off my property! I would consider that a hostile act. And so would my German Sheppard's.... What color suit and tie would you guy's recommend? YFIS

    Re: fellow cockers,please go oppose hr2492

    Amigo ramapomtngamefarm I want to thank you and all the fellow cockers for standing up and speaking about this issue.
    I wrote my petition and got a bit emotional about this.
    For me it's Just the begining, here in California we are begining to send petitions to Sacramento requesting to consider legalization of "Cockpits and game Fowl Fifgting" as a solution to the reduction of the Prison population in the Correctional system.
    I want to share what I wrote in my petition.
    By the way You all old cockers out there thank you for teaching us "Pupps" because I wrote what you have been preaching in here.


    I oppose H.R. 2492: Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act of 2011 because.
    My unalienable Rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Rights guaranteed by the declaration of independance.
    Our Goverment has the responsibility to secure these rights.
    Our Forefathers and Founders of this great Nation could not have been wrong when they declared that all man are created equal and our diversity is what makes this Country the best place on earth.
    George Washington and Abraham Lincoln raised and fought Game Fowl and prided themselves as good Cockers. Also "Honest Abe" was a nickname Given to Abraham Lincoln for being the best and fairest "Cockpit" referee.
    Please I do not only opose this bill but I ask to legalize it and protect this Bloodsport. Game Fowl are species who were born to fight to the death and there are Historic accounts that substanciate these claim.
    I don't agree with other people who humanize animals & I will respect them, I want to be respected and our goverment has to protect me and the activities I enjoy. Tax, police and regulate Cockpits, we all would live happier and in harmony.
    My 3 sons are serving in the Military and will die to defend this right.

    Re: fellow cockers,please go oppose hr2492

    I just got done reading the support posts for this bill. Man I just can not believe them people really believe animals should have rights like humans. What will animals ever contribute to society without being used as food, in circus, zoo, or cockfighting? Apparently they was raised different from me, because my parents taught me to respect everyone and their decisions and respect all living things, but animals are here for us to use as we see fit. I seen alot of them writing about a world of peace and love and harmony. Do they really believe that? The government is going to make this country communist and I wonder how the animal rights and people who believe animals should have rights will feel when what they help create screws all of us in the end. Sorry for just rambling on but I just need to get it out.

    Re: fellow cockers,please go oppose hr2492

    I agree with all of these comments. in my opinion we need to find some one like Ted Nugent or person that is or could establish a very likable kinship with more fellow Americans. To fight this is going to take time and money. To lobby you need to go to the Capital and spend time there. Take them for lunch. and more than just one time. You would have to be there all the time. I do not have the resources to do that. It would cost about $150.00 every time. Twice a week? That's some people weekly paycheck. And then we are spread out in many different states. Which state do we start with. There are so many questions. I am NOT trying to talk this down! Just thinking we need to get Organized.
    on a lighter side.... They found out why people fight chickens. Sexual Gratification. Really!

    It looks like we are doing pretty good with 80% opposing it and only 20% in favor.

    Re: fellow cockers,please go oppose hr2492

    I voted and here are my comments on the bill:

    I oppose H.R. 2492: Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act of 2011 because...there has never been any law ever written that has not been broken. Beef cattle are harvested by shooting them in the head, goats are harvested by hanging them by their back feet and cutting their throat, fish are harvested by throwing them onto a block of ice to suffocate, deer are harvested by shooting them through the lungs, dairy cattle are harvested by milking them. Each species has it's own method of harvest. Gamecocks (livestock) have been harvested by allowing them to fight for more than 3,000 years. Around the world today gamecocks (livestock) are being harvested and this gamecock industry generates billions of dollars to the economy.
    The Animal Welfare Act is unconstitutional and being used by the left wing socialists supporters of the **** to attack and destroy America's animal agriculture industries.
    Where in our constitution does our government officials find they have the authority to grant/award rights to our livestock and then send government agents (Law Enforcement Officers) out to make raids and create situations where they may kill American citizens to defend our livestock?
