I can't even begin to count the number of pro-BSL materials I've read and the draft legislation I've seen that was rife with misspellings and non-existent "breeds." Just because it doesn't exist doesn't mean there isn't some twit out there trying to ban it.

It's not like we're dealing with Stanford grads drafting local laws. Or even, at times, people with measurable IQs. Unfortunately, they ARE loud, and they know how to appeal to the cowardly streak in too many.

And so what if they're banning Uzbekistan Wire Coated Chihuahuas? Fighting with equally wrong materials doesn't make it right.

Calling them cowards for the way they wrongly approach the situation just means you're calling yourself one too for supporting an equally wrong response.

Didn't your mother ever tell you not to stoop to someone elses level? You sure are quick to fling the insults, both in PMs and in posts. Breaking down takes away from your case.

If you choose A, then most of the public will listen and go about spreading the tale that your opponent is a baby-killer, regardless of whether or not it is false and you have a chance of winning - at least until your opponent finds a sexier lie to tell about you. Whoever can make the voter fear the consequences of the success of their opponent wins.

If you choose B, modern history seems to tell us that you lose.

As long as you know that you're lying cheating and stealing on your way to the finish line.

Its okay to deceive people as long as they do what we want them to do!

*eye roll* No wonder people hate this country.

I was referring to the fact that they appeal to the cowardly streak in their audience - "Ooooooohhhh . . . big bad doggies will eat you and your children . . . " Not that they themselves are being cowards.

It's a list. It's an alert. It's not the be all and end all of rebuttals. It's a jumping off point.

Oh, and here's one site out of many with a list of non-existent breeds. http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/hybriddogs.htm

You're new and obviously don't know me well.

After her calling me a coward for not wanting to start yet another BSL argument? I guess she either wanted another argument or prefers to call people names when they don't get their way.

Awesome first impression, not really caring if I "get to know her" since I already know of her two awesome "tactics."

Kela, I'm not going to insult you, you have the right to your own opinion, but BSL is very real for me and most dog owners. Let's just say you do your thing and I'll do mine. I wont let "this country" take away the last thing in this world that means something to me.
