1. the homeless people was just an example, everyone needs to stop focusing on just that.
2. i love animals, but you people need to stop treating them like humans. because... well, they are not.
i have no problem with charity and helping out animals, what i do have a problem with is when its pointless.
I'll go back to what i said before, someone answer this... do these retired horses still make money for their owners through breeding? if so, how come they need charity?
Apr 30th 2007 4:42PM lol, wow rob, that blows my mind. you talk of humanity yet your treating the horse with more respect than the homeless you mentioned. wheres the humanity in that? let me quote you for one sec.
"...these horses are worked to the bone day in and day out..."
"how would you like if you were a runner and one season you do badly, someone calls you old, kills you, and eats you"
now let me ask you this... how would you like it if you worked for a living, then one day you made a mistake and got fired. with no job, you couldnt afford to pay the rent and got kicked out. with no place to live you wound up on the streets....
yeah, poor horses. oh, and by the way, it doesn't have to be a "nice" hotel. im sure someone on the streets wouldn't mind if they were put up in a motel 6 for a week.
and jess. docent the process of breeding cost some sort of money? and if so, why doesn't the price cover the cost of the horse's living? that just seems like bad business to me.
Apr 30th 2007 3:28PM I 100% agree with #2.
this is whats wrong with the world.
im a 20 year old who earns 100 bucks a paycheck working for his family, trying to live out the American dream. why don't you send me a 1000 dollars to help me afford gas and living. or how bout your local homeless guy. for a thousand bucks you could clean him up, buy him a suit and a hotel for a few days... just that little push to help him get a job. im sure any school would gladly take that money off your hands. theres soooo many better uses for a thousand bucks than a stupid cup.
