Henry's Law -- Taking JMBell's proposal one step further

One thing that really has me upset is how our Legislature played around with the Puppy Torture Bill. I'm sure it will get messed with again when it is discussed today up on Capitol Hill.

JM Bell Thinks so too:

Tomorrow, up on the hill, in the first special session of the 2007 Legislative Session, there’s going to be a dumbass attempt, by insane Republicans, to pass the Animal Torture Bill, but, not to make it a felony until the second conviction.

I want you to consider:

1.) Michael Vick is a first time offender.

2.) I took animal husbandry in school, and, if you’re afraid of what this bill will do to you under the umbrella of “animal husbandry” then you’re doing it wrong and you need to go to jail.

And, Mr Bell issued a challenge:

If your legislator doesn’t vote to pass Henry’s Law (first time felony version) or if your legislator votes against Henry’s Law … I want you to file to run against them next year. If you can’t do that, I want you to give whatever you can, a donation, volunteer time, door-to-door work, whatever. to their opponent next year.

I hereby make a pledge. I am a man of very limited means financially, but I feel very strongly on this issue. Any Republican Legislator who votes against this bill (or trys to alter it to make it a felony the second time around), I will contribute $50 or more to his opponents in 2008. Any Democratic Legislator who is dumb enough to do this (and I pray there isn't) will find me giving $100 contributions to both primary and general election opponents. Furthermore, if this should not be incentive enough for you, then you will face my wrath, and every dumb move you have ever made will show up here on my blog.

That's quite the pledge! :)

I'm anxious to see how this goes.
