    @Rich Wheeler:

    O5 and RT I think you are trying to minimize and slough off as insignificant the documented atrocities and illegal activities occurring against helpless animals in houses of slaughter and factory farms nationwide.

    I think you’re full of shite. I absolutely support legislation, and laws, that make abuse against animals a criminal offense. Unlike you, who thinks the means justify the end, your boy, Jason Smith, should have been jailed and prosecuted. He was not.

    Your tag team can’t compete against the dedicated thousands from many organizations like HSUS. Compassion Over Killing, Farm.and MFA that are a voice for the voiceless sentient beings that share our planet.

    You can call us a “tag team” until you’re blue in the face. Doesn’t make it so. But you have so totally destroyed your own cred that you have to lash out anyway you can. I understand. It’s hard to be exposed for a fraud like you have been.

    Now, why don’t you provide actually numbers of organizational members of those groups instead of making another one of your bogus claims by saying “thousands.” Probably because you can’t. Like all your other claims ($10/hr) you are full of crap. News flash, every state has an agricultural agency that investigates such things as animal cruelty. EVERY ONE OF THEM. Poking a cow with a pitch fork, as your boy Jason Smith did, leaves a mark that is quite distinguishable from a hoof mark injury.

    But hey, if you want to keep up the ruse of being such an animal lover, while you approve the actions of Jason Smith, I am more than happy to continue to expose your hypocrisy.

    RT Re the bet Why would I bet $300 On underdog Cruz to win $100 against favorite Trump?

    Good question, why would you. I wondered that at the time, that’s why I said you need to get it figured out before you start making bets. So far every time I’ve accepted you’ve come back to change the terms. That’s why I’m waiting now til you get your act together. If you do, come back then.

    I think you are trying to minimize and slough off as insignificant the filmed and documented atrocities and illegal activities occurring against helpless animals

    You,……. think WE……? You are the person that thinks it’s okay for someone to torture animals as long as someone is filming it. I guess that’s a new standard. So now, if someone wants to torture an animal all they have to do is make sure someone is filming it so that they can ask for donations to pay for their time and video operation. Do they need a separate videographer or can they do it themselves?
    This is truly a new standard. Rich’s Law? It shall be okay to commit a crime as long as someone is taking a video of it so that the video may be used for fundraising.

    Why do you continue to poke the fraud? Rich is upset. Understandably so. Frauds don’t like being exposed. He doesn’t like having it pointed out he sits in leather chairs and has two pure bred dogs because of the rape of the mother of those dogs. He is upset because MFA has been exposed as a grifting group headed by a grifter who is probably being paid, illegally, by MFA for saving not ONE animal and making a bogus, misleading video that is used to bilk the stupid.

    @retire05: It’s just a natural reflex when you’re poked to poke back. It’s interesting how much squealing takes place when a liberal socialists true side is revealed. I can’t even imagine a person saying ‘the ends justify the means’.
    I mean, how many things fit into that? It’s okay to kill a baby if you accidentally get pregnant or just don’t want a baby?
    2. It’s okay to torture an animal as long as you film it for fundraising.
    3. It’s okay to wear leather shoes if you had them already, never mind that the poor cow was tortured before they ‘ripped’ it’s hide off for those shoes.

    Rich can ‘justify’ those things because it’s all just a sham anyhow.

    See there you are, trying to change the bet again. So you’re under the illusion that there is a ‘set’ of rules that people gamble by and don’t set their own bets based on what they want them to be.
    So if we agreed on the terms of a bet, that bet has to be in a ‘standard format’ and we can’t determine our own conditions? So if I were to say that I’ll bet you 5 to 1 that Sambo would win and the conditions of the bet is that whether Sambo wins or loses, I’ll pay you the 5 dollars. You’re saying we couldn’t make that bet because it doesn’t fit the ‘standard rules of betting as established by Rich’? Regardless of whether it is a fair bet or legal bet, you’re saying we are not allowed to make up our own terms?

    So you’re trying to worm out of the bet that you agreed on, where you put up 300 and I put up 100 and if neither wins we split the 400. You’re saying that’s not a ‘legal bet’ so we aren’t allowed to make that bet. That’s your way of trying to worm your way out? Betting 101 has a full set of all the exact rules people are allowed to use for betting and no bets that are not detailed in 101 are allowed. Is that rule in Betting 101? What is the exact number of that rule? I was just looking in that set of rules and clearly Rule 101:27:13:2 allows two persons to modify the rules if they both agree.

    I’m a little disappointed that you didn’t tell us about your Gay Pride Parade this past Saturday. I know it was likely because you were so busy waving your rainbow flag and parading that you just didn’t have time. But it’s getting toward mid week and you can come down from that Saturday High and fill us in? Did you get a lot of funds raised for MFA? Will you be able to hire more animal torturer actors for your films? Is Runkle getting a raise?

    Actors, animals and slaughter houses hired and rented to STAGE the illegal atrocities? Really
    I’ve heard some say the holocaust killing of 6 million Jews never happened or was staged for propaganda purposes.

    I consider that a deplorable and disturbing comparison you made; that equates Jews and others executed by the NAZI’s to cattle. Which is exactly the same way that the fascist Third Reich leadership viewed and treated the victims of the Holocaust. My opinion of you has just dropped several notches.

    Geez, Rich, get a grip. You are the one that said MFA hires undercover agents to go in and mistreat animals so it can be captured on film. Are you now saying they are not ‘acting’ (as in staged) but are genuinely torturing the animals? Which is it? Are they actually torturing animals or just pretending to torture the animals.

    You are the one that wanted to make the 300-100 bet, then when I accepted you’re claiming it’s not a legal bet according to Betting 101. I only asked which statute in 101 it is. Can’t you even give a simple answer?

    What? No more Gay parades for the rest of the year? What the hell is the Gay pride/Save the animals crowd doing? Just letting the animals be tortured with impunity? Aren’t you concerned about Runkle running short on pocket change?

    What has you FB visitors dropped below 3 again and you’re trying to get the total up or something?

    You sure enjoy making stuff up.

    Wow, you’re making bets and can’t remember that you made them? Have you had a psychiatric check up lately?

    Trump’s got no possible chance?

    you said that but don’t believe it? If you really believed it you would bet 100 – 1 wouldn’t you.

    Never said MFA hires people to go in and torture animals–absurd

    So now you’re back to ‘making it up as you go along’. Are you now saying MFA didn’t pay undercover people to go in and work in dairies and slaughterhouses ? And their jobs were? To mistreat and torture animals to get it on video. Now you’re trying to deny they had undercover people?

    I agree with you that it was unfortunate that in this expose the undercover whistle blower had to participate

    Not only did these undercover people have to wait they had to participate for a period of time so they could get the videos

    those are quotes from you. so now you’re trying to deny they paid their own people to go in and participate in torturing animals?

These people are true heros RT—They are getting reoccurring sadistic animal abusers prosecuted and jailed. Slaughter houses shut down..Not a single MFA employee charged with any wrongdoing–isn’t that true? Can you find one single charge against anyone from MFA in an undercover sting–save your time.

    You are the one who should seek psychiatric help RT Don’t stop taking all those meds you’re currently on–you obviously need em.. Why are you afaid to bet $100 on phony Donald against the real Conservative Cruz.–straight up $100.

    Joe and Bill have a bet with each other
    If Joe bets $300 on candidate A to win
    Bill bets $100 on candidate B to win
    Candidate C wins
    How much money does Joe end up with? Bill?
    RT seems to think the answer is they split the $400 evenly– $200 each–does anyone agree?
    RT—You sticking with that?

    You never said they were “hired” which would denote they were actually paid for the crime of abusing animals in order to create a misleading video. Unfortunately, they were paid by the farmers they tried to put out of business.

    So we are to understand that those, like Jason Smith, who took a job from a farmer and then not only abused cattle, but admitted to abusing cattle so he could videotape that abuse, are heroes in your book?

    So much for abolishing the honor part of duty, honor, country.

    You’re a sick man, Rich.
