      As one who loves the slot machines, I have to walk past the horses going around the track and not say anything. I just can't, the place has been there longer than I have. But no way will I ever bet on a horse. That is out of line for me. I feel so bad for the horses but they appear to be well kept and treated. I have seen them covered with blankets, etc. and they look healthy, I've seen then up close occasionally. Still, no bets here.

       I have seen races,,the public goes into hysteria, like a mob, I have sworn I would never let mass hysteria get a grip on me,but in those settings it does, in wrestling..90 % fake,I went to see,,and thought what  joke,not just men falling for it, sweet looking young ladies yelling twist hi arm hit him,,I was unaffected,,then I saw one of the wrestlers pull what looked like a knife nd it looked like he stabbed his opponent,(faked it)and her I was yelling against this cheater who was nothing more than an actor to arouse the public,I fellfor it and wanted him killed,on seeing the referee check him and find nothing,and the one that looked like he had been stabbed,recover immediately and go one with this farce. I realized,mass hysteria is what these people want,they must know it is fake,and fall for it any way,I will not go to those or races where I have seen the same sort of mass hysteria

      I've never been to a horse race and don't enjoy gambling, so this is an easy pledge for me. This "sport" is far more entrenched and has far greater support than bullfighting does in Spain, so eliminating it will be a long battle.
