WASHINGTON, DC – With Mr. Donald J. Trump becoming the President-Elect of the United States of America, and the Republicans retaining control of the U. S. Senate with Senator Addison Mitchell “Mitch” McConnell, Jr. (R-KY) remaining U. S. Senate Majority Leader, the PAST ACT (Prevent All Soring Tactics) is graveyard dead.
Since 1988, the “Big Lick” Millionaires have donated approximately $750,000.00+ to Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY). In return, Senator McConnell has “blocked” the PAST Act, and upon becoming Senate Majority Leader, Majority Leader McConnell refused to give the PAST Act a vote.

Adding insult to injury, U. S. Senate Past Act co-sponsor Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), lost her bid for re-election by approximately1,000 votes out of 740,000 cast to New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan (D). The Humane Society of the United States was a generous contributor to Senator Ayotte’s campaign/s.
CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty) statement:
“We, The People” will continue to speak on behalf of “The Horses” who cannot speak for themselves. We have taken this “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty issue from the Gulf of Mexico in Panama City, Florida to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, to the Missisippi Delta below Memphis, throughout Middle Tennessee, to the gates of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration (Shelbyville, TN).
CCABLAC‘s efforts have ended “Big Lick” Horses shows in public venues of Jackson, Mississippi, and Panama City Beach, Florida, and strongly contested them in Asheville, NC and Tunica, Mississippi.
We now have the wind at our backs”, said Seay, “and the “Big Lick” is a failing “unmarketable product”.
We learned in February 2015, that the answer to the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty was take it to the people.
That is what we have done, and that is what we will continue to do.”
CCABLAC maintains this Facebook page which has provided daily Comment Totals on U. S. Secretary of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to remove the “Pads and Chains” to abolish ‘Big Lick’ Animal Cruelty:

” … it is still up to us, the people, to achieve the goal of respect for all of those that are oppressed in our society. Now more than ever we need to fight for social justice for people and animals alike and develop a culture of respect and unification worldwide.”
