ive had my say. ive learned no one ever changes their mind. or opinions on touchy subjects. b/c logic is never used when touchy/emotional subject are brought up.
i believe in logic. and i believe in real life. im a realist. not everything on paper or so called scientific studies are true to real life.
animals are put on earth to be taken care of and used. i do both. i havent docked a dog in 20 yrs, i havent cut a dogs ears in 8 yrs. i have debarked a dog about 4 yrs ago. and that definitly saved her life. im in favor of spaying/neutering. in fact i think all living beings should be spayed. too many people on earth now. much less cats and dogs.
i have never owned a draft animal. probably never will. but if i did, and i deemed it necessary for both our benefit to dock his tail i would do it. since i dont farm chances are great i would never dock it then. but i dont hold that against anyone that does.
i believe in personal freedom. there are enough laws to dictate most aspects of a citizens life now adays.
with all that mumbo jumbo said, i dont hold grudges or ever hate anyone. even if they beleive differently than me. id like to ask for same treatment. but i doubt it will happen.
there ya have it. have fun with it.
