    the political and personal musings of two

    In case you didn't know, Rep. Frank Peterman (D-St. Petersburg) is trying to make bestiality a felony in Florida .

    I'm glad our state legislature has their priorities in line. Yeah, ya know, there aren't more important things to worry about than some hick farmer banging his favorite goat.

    Sure, it is sick, and potentially abusive, but is this some kind of epidemic? A catastrophe waiting to happen? No, I think some legislator was upset after hearing that some dude was porking his pig. He probably cried all night about it, while fondly remembering the golden retriever he had as a teenage boy.

    Guys, seriously. This isn't an issue. Stop trying to legislate morality. Stop saying "Oh, here's a law we haven't passed yet". Passing a law for the sake of passing a law is a waste of time at best, and utterly retarded at worst.

    I can understand making it "illegal" (I may not agree with it, but I could understand it), but a f*cking felony????

    That's "lose your rights for life" kind of sh!t.

    A real crime involves one or more victims. But making crap like "transporting live lobsters in a plastic bag" as a felony, no wonder our court systems are overburdened.

    There are fishing violations in Florida that are felonies as well. For instance, if you catch a certain species of fish, measuring it to verify that it is of legal size, then throwing it in the ice chest, and you get boarded by FWC, and the fish has shrunk (they do that in an ice box), then you could get royally screwed. Why not just write a ticket, pay your fine, and be done with it. Save the felonies for people who are actually poaching or disrespecting our natural resources?

    Regardless, I think someone who decides to screw a farm animal has no place in society... but, aren't there more important things to worry about? Has there been a scientific study that correlates goat-fucking to drug use or violent crime? There are lots of unsavory things in this world, but you don't have to make laws for all of them.

    If an animal is being abused, then use the current statutes regarding animal cruelty. If someone does it in front of their children, then lock them up for that. If the animal is just being loved (heh, sorry, couldn't help myself) then why would anyone give a damn, other than to say "dear lord, that is one sick motherfucker."

    Lawmakers that focus on things like this a) have sick minds of their own and b) are too afraid of the political recourse for tackling serious issues. Who (besides me) is gonna say "No, I don't think we should make banging your sheep a crime"? Its easy legislation that accomplishes nothing.

    A felony is fine by me.

    Interestingly enough, the first hanging in the Massachussetts was for: ""buggery with a mare, a cowe, two goats, divers sheepe, two calves, and a turkey"
