    you should vote yes!

    they are cruel to those dogs and then discard them like trash when they are no longer useful!

    I'd think it would perhaps be better to pass regulations regarding the dogs' treatment. Seems a bit overbroad a measure, particularly when it's going to take away someone's livelihood that they've had for 40 years.

    Are they going to try to stop horse racing next? Not being glib, but, unfortunately, I've had the experience of dealing with some of these purported animal protection groups and they'd rather the animals were dead than working.

    Does any one else see the tragic, socialist tendencies in the statement above?

    How many stagecoaches would We, The People own if this kind of politics was practiced when Henry Ford made good on his entrepreneurial wet dream?

    Geez... if your going out of business because your product isn't selling, let it go...

    You didn't vote Ravi.

    I'm on the fence on this one. This poll/thread may honestly influence my vote.

    The track owners claim to have cleaned up their act and say the cruelty charges are false.

    I don't know what to vote. I'm sure Angie has a strong opinion.:eusa_whistle:

    I am against cruelty to animals and I am against tax payer's bailing out these types of businesses.

    But Jillian makes a good point.

    If we all stop eating cows, they will become extinct.

    What are the pros and cons for you?
