Sorry, Bobby, no one actually believes you're a redneck.

Those dogs need their freedom. And Bobby Jindal, as a freedom-loving American, can give it to them.

My uncles story of how they used to have a dog, one that just showed upo at the farm one day. A dachshund. tThey kind of adopted it, the dog used to like to ride  on the trucks side rails. Once my Uncle was driving down the Interstate, saw the dog up there, swerved on purpose. Recalled him looking in the rear view mirror, seeing he dog flying. Hence the nickname of the "60 MPH dog". Yeah, I know. Dickish, but funny.

What kind of redneck lets their dog ride loose in the bed on the interstate? Put that damn dog up front where he belongs.
 
2014-06-15 04:24:15 PM  
Wow.

But remember, your pregnant brain-dead daughter or wife will be forced by law to remain on life support until her deeply disabled fetus can cut out of her, at your expense and against your wishes. Because fark you, that's why.

"(The bill) would place a significant burden on our citizens

I agree. Not being able to ferry my dog around in the back of my pickup when I'm on the interstate has made my life so difficult since those kinds of laws were passed where I live. I mean, it's not like back roads are available, or animal cages.

Speaking of which:

I could see value in a bill that adds a sunset clause to every law, requiring the legislature to periodically revisit them and vote to reenact the law - otherwise it expires automatically.

I was driving in Middle Georgia once, and saw two good ol' boys riding in a cage in the back of a truck (one of those big cages that fills the whole bed, big enough for calves). Just as I started to pass them, they got in a fight. I almost drove off the road, laughing.

It's OK as long as you're not driving your dog into a volcano, cause Bobby's not going to monitor that.

Are there dogs spilling out all over the highways? Here's an idea: Let's see if there an actual problem before we implement yet another pain in the ass law to be harrassed with.

Maybe show a little more faith in the common sense of the citizenry before the government steps in with a pound of prevention for an ounce of cure? Hunters especially care a great deal for their trained and valued hunting dogs.

It would be good if the government just pay attention to the big things, and maybe even spend taxpayer money responsibly.

He's against government regulation, unless it comes to telling you who you can marry or restricting women's rights.

Because they're just dogs. Who cares if they get hurt or die?

I'd love to see you backpedal on that.
 
2014-06-15 04:37:50 PM  
Is this actually a problem that requires legislation?  Are dogs falling out of pick ups on a regular basis?
 
2014-06-15 04:39:01 PM  
I know in certain parts of Texas,it's illegal to put kids in the back of pickups. Here in NM, not so much.  I mean, if you're not good enough to ride in the front...

I once rode in the back of a pickup truck doing 70mph down the highway. From Thibodaux, LA to New Orleans. (That's about an hour.) Fun times, although going over the river via the Crescent City Connection was a bit unnerving.

mark12A: Are there dogs spilling out all over the highways?


Yes, there are. Lots of them. Vets report that they see injured dogs all the time that have been hurt when a sudden stop, swerve or accident threw them out of a truck. Even the wind at that speed can injure a dog, by blowing grit in their eye. That's why they passed the law. I used to ride in the back of a truck myself when I was a kid, and they made that against the law, too, because kids were getting killed unnecessarily. Just because it never happened to me or anyone I knew didn't mean it didn't happen.
