in a sad, government is screwy, kind of way.....

it's like the old guy who was fined for expanding his horse herd after an ordinance was passed to no allow livestock in town.  those people with livestock were grandfathered in, but could not replace animals that died or were sold. just over 9 months after the ordinance was passed, his mare foaled.  he went before the council and the council woman was quite irritate that he had bred the mare after the ordinance had gone in to effect.  only problem?  mares are in foal for 11 months, not 9.  fine was dropped.....

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I thank God daily that I was born, raised and will someday die, WAY out in the country.

This has nothing to do with animal welfare or the general welfare for that matter.  Me thinks this "council" woman was more intrested in giving stallions free condoms and teaching them how to use one.
