Sometimes I think that if we try hard enough, we Americans can work together for some kinda common good. Not everything is a partisan issue, right?
Maybe, but you wouldn't know it from this posting...
In a post trying to help end the "sport" of greyhound racing, "Lieberman Democrat" (republican) Skye, added the following: AncoraImparo: "Of note, this sport was 'glamorized' in Matt Damon's break out movie - Good Will Hunting - the same movie where Damon's South Boston character speaks highly of Howard Zinn."
Between this & the post further down LINK where another Con blames Democrats & civil rights leaders for enabling the conditions (gangsta "thug" culture) that lead Michael Vick to kill dogs, we liberals just suck!
Well, partisans will be partisans, I guess... No rest for the hateful, and everything is fodder for scoring political points.
(And, it turns out that the action she was advocating for, a greyhound walk to deliver a petition to the MA attorney general, doesn't seem to actually be happening... There is no mention of it on the link she provided on her site, and I've found no reference to it anywhere else, either.)
For those interested in the issue, however, two links to more info (one in MA, the other countrywide.)
