However vehemently rodeo organisers defend their sport, time is just about up for a form of so called entertainment that is increasingly coming into bad odour. Rightly or wrongly, the public is coming around to the view of animal welfare lobby groups, that the sport is based on the bullying of animals that have no option but to take part, and sometimes die.Save Animals From Exploitation (SAFE) has resumed its campaign to have rodeo banned this summer, offering images from Whangarei’s Mid Northern rodeo as evidence that nothing has changed, that laws protecting the welfare of animals are not being complied with and don’t work. Those images appear to show electric prods being used on calves before their release, despite the reported presence of Ministry for Primary Industries observers and at least one veterinarian.Electric prods have reportedly been made wide use of in the past to ensure that animals perform with the desired degree of ‘spirit,’ while last year saw claims that bulls had had their tails twisted before release for the same reason.It is unlikely that any sport can survive against the level of public distaste that is now building against rodeo.

Nowhere in that sentence did I say European, there might be influences from many different cultures but that comes from hundred of years of being apart of different empires. Pan European is absolutely not the way you should be describing Lebanon, its shameful to try and steer it away from its Arab roots which are firmly planted..

You don agree that some police storm trooper gets his jollies by harassing people who don quite look “American” whatever the fuck that is? Do you think he asks everyone he sees if they a citizen? You can be damn sure he doesn So who do you think he harasses then? Bingo. “Foreign” looking people. This is outrageous, and I do not give a rusty fuck if it the law or not.
