I'd make some snarky comment about there being no doubt who that farking hick votes for, but thinking he votes at all is probably overestimation.

I'm disgusted but that's what I get for reading that article, I guess.

Cockfighting is not a Tennessee tradition. Nor is it a South Carolina tradition, Alabama tradition, Louisiana tradition, or Kentucky tradition. It is a tiny subculture in the hardscrabble rural South.

It's a Mexican tradition.

It's an important Southron tradition, like dueling, or slavery.

It is still better than MMA

"Now, did I do anything to make those birds fight? No. It's just in their nature," Hilary Hood said


You mean besides putting them right in front of one another, knowing full well how they will react?

Anyone from TN, particularly Nashville, already knows that The Tennessean is a sensationalist rag. Cock fighting isn't a "tradition". I've been here my whole life and have never seen nor heard of a cock fight. I don't know one person who doesn't find them deplorable.
 
2009-06-22 01:24:20 PM  
I've seen cockfighting. It is so much more boring than you imagine.

Just don't cross the streams.

I was going to say something about the man smoking and cockfighting was clearly a defiant front to Obama and the nation as a whole, but I'll just buy his next pack and give him a salute instead.

As society evolves, there are cultural traditions that have go - slavery, FGM, cockfighting, arranged marriages, dog fighting, and other such things. This is a traditional practice that conservative (little "c") culture has to give up.

I was invited to a cockfight once. I stayed up all night greasing my zipper.

So cock fighting has been eradicated for over a hundred years?

/weak. 2/10.

It's not a Southern tradition. Christ, but I guess don't let that get in the way of the haters. And it is Southern darlin, not Southron.

Yeah my granfather used to do it. He also used to get drunk, beat his wife, and celebrate by firing his gun into the air. Some things in my heritage I am happy to leave behind.

I dunno. I see lotsa potential for comeback on that one.

2009-06-22 01:29:45 PM  
Well, I thought they wore gloves and helmets, you know, like "American Gladiators."

Come on, it isn't like it is dog fighting.

Funny thing is, if Michael Vick had been running a cockfighting ring rather than a dogfighting ring, I don't think anyone would have cared that much.

It is too a tradition in the south...like, Mexico south.

"In Lewis County, I personally saw birds with their intestines hanging out, still alive. One bird had its intestines tangled in the feet of the bird it had been fighting," Goodwin said.

And I'm sitting here at my desk eating pasta...

Cockfighting, like many things, is awesome in concept but not really fun at all in practice.

/cockfighting
//restroom swordplay?
 
2009-06-22 01:31:20 PM  
Which is more inhumane, raising a chicken for a couple years free-ranging it and then dooming it to a bloody 4 minute death or raising a chicken in a small cage with 8 other chickens all while the 9 chickens in the cage above them shiat on it and it eventually dies of some bacterial infection.

cockfighting is violent and kinda farked up but atleast their lives up to that point isn't the shiats.
 
2009-06-22 01:31:30 PM  
Hey subby, please explain just how that is a picture of a "true American".
 
2009-06-22 01:31:46 PM  
Fighting Cocks are great for getting rid of rattle snakes and copperheads.

It's true. Just sayin'

Fighting Cocks VS. Trouser Snake... Cock wins everytime.

/RUN!
 
2009-06-22 01:32:40 PM  
I know I'm going to get flamed but how is cockfighting anymore cruel then how we kill our chickens for food in factory farms or when we use animals for medical tests (i know medical testing has a valid purpose and cock fighting is just for entertainment).

But these birds are raised to fight and they are naturally inclined to fight each other. I've never seen cock fights to be anymore cruel then bull fighting either.

Wow. I'm going home. As it turns out, two hours of sleep over a seventy-two hour period is insufficient.
 
2009-06-22 01:33:03 PM  
While I generally don't care if they fight the chickens (yeah, it's pretty cruel to just kill them for the entertainment, but they are chickens).....But the whole "they're bred to do this" thing always pisses me off. Fine, they're bred to do it, but they ain't bred with 3" stainless steel knives strapped to their legs...Nor are they bred with massive amounts of chicken steroids coursing through their veins....In nature, the birds would fight, until one feels beaten and it would then run away and the other would move on to try and defeat another male in his attempt to attract the most hens...

He doesn't memo me in advance to let me know where he will post. Sometimes I drink coffee while scrolling.
