It has now been widely reported that US Senate candidate Matt Bevin spoke at a rally in Corbin Kentucky which was organized "for the purpose of unifying and uniting gamefowl enthusiasts around the principle of using the democratic process to change the law, not break the law." [NKy.com]
As expected a number of people are questioning Bevin's judgment for having spoken to a group that supports cock fighting. But I think there is a bigger question here.
According to the news reports Bevin said he went to the event which had 700 attendees because "I’m a politician running statewide; any chance I get to speak to a few hundred people I’m going to take it.” So here is the bigger question. Why in 2014 are there 700 people in Kentucky going to a rally in support of cockfighting?
You can't get 700 people to do anything about important issues such as Common Core, Obamacare, government corruption or the views of some in office that euthanasia may be the solution to alleviating the heavy Medicare burden being imposed by the "unproductive elderly" equating it to the process used to kill dogs at local pounds.
But 700 people will show up and rally to keep cockfighting alive and well?
God help us.
