Last weekend was the "convention" of all the Winograd cult members and from the sound of the "live blogger", plus her announcement that she "doesn't have enough time" for one of her NK shrill blogs, leave one to realize that NK didn't have a lot to celebrate at this convention.
Then came this past Tuesday and their world really crumbled, as if it hasn't already with Spindletop and Boggs Mountain among others. The Miami-Dade voters saw right through No Kill Nation, HSUS, and many big names in the humane community and voted 2 to 1 to keep their pit bull ban of 23 years.
Dahlia Canes, whose only claim to pit bull knowledge is that of owning two pits for two years, claims the citizens of Miami/Dade were brainwashed. Please. If anything, they were brainwashed in favor of the repeal. They haven't had to deal with pits for 23 years, no major maulings, no fatalities, sympathy, if anything, was on the side of the pits.
Plus Canes is a fine, upstanding example of a pit owner, typical of these owners is the attitude that they are above the law because of their love for pit bulls.
http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/Miami-Dade-Residents-Vote-on-Pit-Bull-Ban-Repeal-Tuesday-166056926.html While Canes played with her pit bulls outside her Hialeah home, she told NBC 6 South Florida her pet couldn't be sweeter. "Just because a dog is born of a specific breed, does not make it inherently dangerous, "Canes said. "Any dog can bite".
Canes loves pit bulls, but hates the bad reputation that comes with them. She said they are discriminated against. She's had two pit bulls for a couple years now - even though it's been illegal in Miami-Dade County since 1989. "Yes, I am breaking the law by having two pit bulls in my house, "Canes said. "And you don't care?" a reporter asked her. "They're my family," she answered. " I will defend them."
I do hope that Animal Control comes knocking at her door soon.
No Kill Nation took a hit too because Miami/Dade just declared "No Kill" and they think you can't be NK if there is a ban. Fools can't figure it out that it is actually in their favor and we won't tell them either.
So a grassroots movement defeated the big money with truth. Let this be a lesson to all. Truth wins and Miami-Dade just proved it. Let
http://www.dogsbite.org/ take a bow. Without that valuable help Miami-Dade would be waving at the trucks doing by with pit bulls galore.
Tuesday also brought more good news, but not for the same big money or for "No Kill". The Maryland Court case about pit bulls was deadlocked in the legislature. The legislature asked the same court to review the case. A small victory, but never the less a message is being sent.
HSUS, ASPCA, Best Fiends, AVMA, all of you need to listen and listen closely. There is a message being sent, a strong message that says we want something done about the pits, not all breeds, the pits. Stop putting your donations above the safety of innocents.
