Do Idiots Dream of Organic Dogs?

L. Neil Smith at The Libertarian Enterprise - a reminder that animals are property, that they have no rights, and that no matter how much you like them, neither you nor your "representatives" have the authority to tell anyone how they treat their own property.

But I'd still shoot a two-legged pig that hurt my dog.

Which brings us to the point of this exercise. Famed professional basketball player Michael Vick got himself convicted a couple of years ago under a law that should never have been written in what purports to be a free and culturally diverse nation. No representative in a free country would have written or introduced it. No freedom-loving legislator would have given it a moment's attention. No judge would have let the prosecutor leave the courtroom without fining him for contempt.

It seems that Mr. Vick was engaged with other dangerous criminals in the vile crime of breeding and training dogs--animals, property, with no rights--to fight each other to the death. This is a sport that has been going on for as long as men have had dogs. Money changed hands on the outcome and a good time was had by all, even the dogs who survived.

I've seen the same thing done with scorpions.

Your pet is your property. No one may dispose of your property without your consent.


Unless one happens to be a cannibal pot adherent.
