Willie Against Dogfighting

REDHAIRED STRANGER SPEAKS OUT
AGAINST DOGFIGHTING

Willie Nelson
By McCullough
Willie Nelson has joined forces with the Best Friends Animal Society for a new public service announcement in his native Georgia. The spot supports a new anti-dogfighting bill currently hitting the State Legislature.

"Willie could not have been more gracious," said Best Friends Animal Society Campaign Specialist Jon Dunn. "Willie has an enormous amount of compassion for animals, and we couldn't be happier that he decided to join forces with us and the thousands of people across Georgia who want to see a tougher law."

Willie Nelson is from Abbott, Texas. NOT GEORGIA. Try again.

kizzy1 - I thought that was the pun?

Willi rules. If there is a federal minimum for LSD possession, there should be one for dog fighting. Fed mins are bullock, but not near that of dog or cock fighting.

What totally sucks is that a friend of mine in Denver had his dog put down by the city/county because the dog was of a breed related to pit bulls (Staffordshire Terrier). The dog never hurt anyone and he fought the city/county on the issue for 3 years till they had enough of him and took his dog. Total BS.

if willie supported cross dressers or transvestite unions, or was an advocate for plastic surgery, then I could see the sarcasm.

but for this particular issue, THAT IS NOT FUNNY.

good try. bye now.

i'm sure no court would have a dog put to death just because of a relation to an aggressive breed, and yes I know not all Pits are aggressive, but it is their nature. So I'm sure there's more to that story. Yeah, where did they get that Willie was born in Georgia? I don't think he's ever lived there, had a run in Vancouver and of course Nashville, but I've never seen Georgia on any bios. Anyways, glad to see Willie stepping up for a great cause.

HooDoo, I have a Golden Retriever. Why did you pick that breed to go up against Willie Nelson. They aren't even the fighting kind. I'm not a violent person but if anybody fucked with my dog then the gloves come off.

And whats wrong with being against dogfighting? It's a barabric sport that iis so fucking cruel. I hope Michael Vick never wears a uniform again. As a matter of fact I support a law in which those convicted of dogfighting should be covered in ground beef and put in a kennel with the most rabid of pit bulls.

If it was Trey's doped up ass speaking against dogfighting, all of the molly-heads would be showing him with good words on this thread.

Bottom line is people involved in dogfighting are assholes and Willie Nelson is the man. He's a cut apart from today's overly patroitic country singers who play shit music and whose fans only come to see them so that they can use indoor plumbming while they snort meth and eat thier freedom fries.

Willie's OK, but why not shoot for the top in landing a celebrity spokesperson to lobby the support of Georgia's politicians? Isn't Larry the Cable Guy the Speaker of the House down there? Or has he already been replaced by the Dodge Hemi guy?
