This promises to be a better year for the greyhounds in
. I just have a good feeling. Florida
I think, speaking as a small cog in free market
, it makes utter sense. And I’m not certain where it does not make sense to some people. This is the basis on which the America is built… Free enterprise. U.S.
The squeakiest, loudest wheels are the breeders, greyhound owners and trainers. They say they are successful. They say they are still bringing in the crowds. They claim popularity is growing. Well, they claim a lot of other nonsense too…
If that is true, then they should have no worries about decoupling. This just gives the casino owners the right to keep or cancel. If greyhound racing is that wildly successful, as they claim, then they will be able to thumb their noses in our faces, won’t they? Well, won’t they?? That would certainly give them pleasure, huh.
What I think is more likely is that fact that interest is waning in watching dogs run in a circle and risk limb and life. The industry is a squeaking wheel because their umbilical cord may be cut. As long as the current requirement exists, they have a guaranteed income. Decouple, they have to stand on their own two feet. Much as every other business in the
They won’t be able to and they know it. Despite their posturing.
Please support HB 641/SB 382. Let the industry sink or swim on its own merits. Or lack thereof.
Give them a chance for a home. And a life.
