Plenty of email is
arriving in my mail program. Rodeo cowboys are writing to
Most of them are polite, sensible, and present
themselves like gentlemen. A few aren't very polite,
and they're probably illiterate, too.
They're trying to convince
me of several things:
1) I'm not seeing
what I'm seeing
2) The owner of
the SHARK website is all wrong - the videos and facts
are not accurate
3) Rodeo is
unquestionably a kind, humane, caring sport
4) I'm not seeing
what I'm seeing
In English vernacular, "balls" often equates to "courage".
It's time to write
about the courage - the "balls" which nobody - NOT EVEN ONE PERSON - in the
entire rodeo cowboy community possesses.
What can you say
about an entire rodeo cowboy industry - thousands of members and supporters
- dozens, if not hundreds of administrators - that WILL NOT stand up to a
public, videotaped debate with ONE man?
limited knowledge of technical details: dates, times, names,
cities, names of livestock, and all my other
limitations - I'll pass the buck right over to the man who
DOES know these things.
Mr. Steve Hindi -
president of SHARK - has been trying for years to have a factual debate with
ANYONE with ANY position in the rodeo cowboy world.
has publicly - and consistently - offered to debate and
prove the issues of rodeo animal abuse.
He recently sent me
a letter reaffirming that offer.
ONE MAN - a simple request for the
truth in the form of a videotaped debate - and no takers!
If the rodeo people are HONEST, they ought to be lining up in crowds
across the country
to make Steve Hindi look like a fool!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH
ALL THE BRAVE COWBOYS? NO BALLS FOR A SIMPLE DEBATE?
Not even ONE
spokesperson is willing to go on record and have a civilized debate.
find this beyond incredible.
It's time for
at least ONE HONEST cowboy to step forward and "COWBOY UP!"
to a legitimate debate.
The debate will be videotaped, and
publicly available on internet locations for anyone to see.
I'll even offer to present the video here, on my website.
Surely SOMEBODY, among
thousands of rodeo cowboys, can step up to the plate,
and present the TRUTH - once and for all.
To me, this is
utterly amazing. Hell - I'D even debate Steve Hindi
publicly - on
I'd be happy to debate him on dog training - I know enough about it
to hold my ground.
Anytime Mr. Hindi is ready, so am I - let's get the
tape rolling, and put the results out in public.
YouTube, MyTube, AnyTube
- I don't care.
Unlike the rodeo cowboys, I have the
courage to stand up to Steve Hindi's questions.
