jumps racing decision

Jumps racing in Victoria is not going to be banned.

The new changes are useless and I hate everybody, including the commenters who applaud the decision because jumps racing is part of Melbourne's "rich tapistry".

Grrr.

*ANGRY*

Also, people who can't spell shouldn't be allowed to make decisions or comment on them.

Or even write the article. Is there no editor?

I'm sorry, but Melbourne's "rich tapestry"? I'm sorry but Australia was founded by people who screwed over the indigenous population, they have no right to have any sort of tapestry.

The history excuse is always laughable. "The past is awesome, at least this list of parts of which I approve." Ugh.

Oh no. I'm sure a lot of people approve of the other parts.
I mean, it's not ~our~ fault, dontcha know?

So true.

That's going on my quotations page. (I assume you don't mind.)

Also, I think maybe jumps racing will go before too long (in the colloquial sense of "before too long" — obviously 5 minutes is really too long). See http://andrewbartlett.com/?p=7204 for some notes on the history.

excuse me, australians have no right to any sort of tapestry???
wtf...just like all white people in the us, i guess.
at least we have taken responsibility for and apologised for what the white man did to the native population.
i'm a little offended by this comment.

Now that I've eaten and I'm feeling a little clearer of mind, I have to agree with what neko_loliighoul said. Using that kind of logic, I don't think there's many places on the entire planet that could claim any kind of tapestry. We're all trying to make up for the past, but writing off Australia like that is not a good way to go about it.

I'm betting you're American, right?

So let's remember what your people did to the American indigenous population and to the blacks they imported to be their slaves, who were raped, beaten, killed, etc.

You might want to think before you attack another person's country.

These pricks were never going to ban it anyway.

It was all just an effort to look like the racing industry actually cared.

These people should get jobs that don't involve making money from animals.

BTW, your main icon is Nausicaä, is it? I've been meaning to check for ages.

'tis indeed. She advocates for bugs and here she is giving the thumbs-up. Nausicaa is awesome.

Ugh. There was a snippet of the story on an ad for the news last night. Rob was going "Ugh aarrrrgh, oh no I hate seeing horses fall, ugh errgh".
Given his commotion, I wasn't quite sure what the story was so asked. He said the story was about "a horse falling in a race" then kept repeating that he doesn't like seeing horses fall. (of course, the news story was NOT about that, but whatever).

It just irritated me because he doesn't like it, but does nothing about it. And I don't think he's even against horse-racing. He just doesn't like to see them fall. That and, you know, the fact that he's perfectly fine with the torture of other animals. (but I can't diss him because he used to be a vegetarian. -_-)
