Next on America's agenda: Bullfighting. Spain's foolish "bull run" has come to America; so far 5,000 American have signed up. Please know the consequences including danger to public safety; include injuries will cost tax payers' plenty: Lifelong disability checks, food stamps, medical care; lawsuits from wives because their husbands can no longer provide for their children or died from the bull run.
"About 5,000 people have signed up to participate in the Virginia event, and the number grows by about 50 each day, said Rob Dickens, co-founder and chief operating officer of The Great Bull Run. And with 2,000 signed up for the Conyers, Ga., event, Dickens expects 5,000 to 7,000 to run there in October...Dozens of people are injured each year in the San Fermin festival at Pamplona, most by tripping and falling. Bulls have killed 15 people since record-keeping began in 1924...More events are planned later for Texas, Florida, California, Minnesota, Illinois and Pennsylvania."
Martin, Jeff. "Inspired by Pamplona, Great Bull Run Coming to US." ABC News. Associated Press, 3 Aug. 2013. Web. 3 Aug. 2013. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/inspired-pamplona-great-bull-run-coming-us-19861127
Also will be held Dade City, FL
"Dade City, Florida -- No need to go to Pamplona, Spain for the running of the bulls as a North Carolina-based company is bringing a similar event to Dade City." http://www.wtsp.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=313377
CONSEQUENCES: The injuries of the bull run will easily generate lawsuits because the State and Federal government sanctioned it. This is also expensive for tax payers as some of these injuries will result in life-long disability including medical care.
NEWS will spread all across CHINA and RUSSIA and reflects the kind of careless and reckless lifestyle Americans lead, lacking in common sense, represents a general lack of education, and barbarity.
This is very shameful to the United States of America.
To prevent lawsuits due to injuries that can run into the billions, and international embarrassment from the press, please stop the bull run which is run amok across the nation encouraging shameless suicidal and wanton behavior.
This is a slap in the face to the dignity of the United States.
Thank you for your time.
