Rising Star Ranch has posted the following Opinion Piece on  https://www.facebook.com/BillyGoBoy.

RISING STAR RANCH  –  “PAST Act Co-Sponsor Facts (pay close attention) The top 10 states having the most cosponsors for the PAST ACT : California 45 New York 27 Florida 22 Texas 19 Pennsylvania 18 Illinois 16 New Jersey 11 Ohio 11 Massachusetts 10 Michigan 9 They make up 63% of the Co-Sponsors and represent the states where only 20% of the members of TWHBEA reside. The States having 1 or zero Co -Sponsors for the PAST ACT are: Alabama 1 Alaska 1 Arizona 1 Delaware 1 Idaho 1 Kentucky 1 Louisiana 1 Montana 1 South Dakota 1 Tennessee 1 Vermont 1 West Virginia 1 Mississippi 0 Nebraska 0 North Dakota 0 Oklahoma 0 Utah 0 Wyoming 0 They make up 4% of the Co-Sponsors and represent the states where 49% of the members of TWHBEA reside. Also of note the original Sponsors Rep. Whitfield and Rep. Cohen are the only House members from their respective states (KY and TN) that have their names attached to this bill.”

Theta Syndicate Reply  –    Mr. Rising Star Ranch,  unless you propose seceding from the union which was attempted 153 years ago and cost about 550,000 American lives, you must remember that  all  citizens of the states of the United States are represented in the United States Congress.

And hurting helpless horses in the name of “Tradition” or “Blood Sport” for family entertainment so people like Celebration Chairman David L. Howard can make a fortune off the advertising sales is abhorrent. Or a community like Shelbyville, Tennessee can justify the cruelty to defenseless animals because of economic benefit is likewise reprehensible.

That is why the people of all America support passage of the PAST ACT – just like they did 50 years ago when the Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Mr. Williams, perhaps it will be helpful for you and others to please listen to the words of “WE SHALL OVERCOME”.   You, sir, are faced with a national movement that is going to see this through.  Senator Joe Tydings and all who believe in this cause are going to stay with it until the Tennessee Walking Horse is allowed to return to its natural roots, and the soring practices and stigma are no more.

The laws affecting  all  of the citizens of the America are made by Congress and signed by the President.

Presently  69%  of the members of the U. S. House endorse the  PAST ACT.

Presently,  57%  of the members of the U. S. Senate endorse the  Past ACT.

Just like the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, It does not matter  where  the members of TWHBEA reside concerning enacting the  PAST ACT, which will address the  soring  of Tennessee Walking Horses which has gone on for the last 46+ years.  What does matter is the Horse Protection Act is a  Federal law,    and the  PAST ACT  will amend it to eliminate the pads and chains, the failed corrupt self-regulation and make horse soring a federal felony.

And it is part of the Congressional Record of the  PAST ACT  (HR 1518),   that a Poll of the TWHBEA members was conducted in September/October 2013 of the  6,950  eligible to vote members.

The TWHBEA members voted landslide  63%  “YES”  in favor of passing the  PAST ACT.

In April 2014,  it appeared that TWHBEA has  5,350  “eligible to vote” members which is a  23%  loss of membership in less than 12 months.

All of this has occurred on the  sore  Big Lick  Steve Smith/Walt Chism/David Williams  watch.

It truly makes you wonder what’s next for the once proud, now disgraced,  Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association.

It leaves no question why sound natural Midnight Sun took his leave of the place.

The  PAST ACT  cannot be passed soon enough.
