Animal farming is a livelihood

Chicken farming is a big business industry with eggs and meat as the final product.

Backyard chickens are both a hobby and a source of egg and meat.

Cockfighting sports starts from eggs, to chicks, to young chickens, to fighting chickens

A gamecock can be sold from eggs up to adult chickens. Cockfighting is different – it is an sports. A hobby sports or A professional sports. Professional cockfighters raised their fighting gamecock chickens from eggs with dedication. Same as hobbyist cockfighters who will raise and take care of their gamecock chickens from eggs. Their goal is to be world champions in the sports of cockfighting every year. One or a couple of world championship titles will bring prestige and honor to the hobbyist and professional cockfighters of eggs aka gamecocks.

Most professional cockfighters have a small operation. The smallest operation for a cockfighting team is five adult male gamecocks with one female gamecock. From this flock size, depending on the successes, it may grow into commercial operation with 10,000 male gamecock population of fighting age from 7 months and up.

Cockfighting sports “world championships” have the mystique as can be won by hobbyist cockfighters and by a professional cockfighters.

Cockfighting School Curriculum

We have lots of cockfighting schools for those interested, with expensive fee. Most of their students are already into cockfighting sports and just needed advanced knowledge.

We have lots of books and video instructions from seasoned cockfighters who are willing to share their secrets. Expensive too.

We now have supply companies offering seminars on gamecock farming from eggs to game time. Might be more a promotional information if the attendee do not think carefully.

Your neighborhood will provide actual experience from eggs collecting to post battle care. Go to a friendly neighbor. Observe and ask questions. Offer your help and maybe become an apprentice and learn the ins and outs of gamecock breeding, selection, feeding, caring, raising and finally conditioning and fighting.

Online social media networks, like YouTube and Facebook, are very helpful on FREE exchange of knowledge – video, photo, and articles. The cyberspace is the new neighborhood of cockfighters.

For us who were born into a cockfighting family we sometime take cockfighting knowledge we learned from our ancestors as common to all people. Which is not. These are important for those new in the sports or thinking of changing lifestyle.

Some of us are proud to be an engineer or to have a career. But never realized that we are always a cockfighter first.

Bringing cockfighting sports into school students, just like basketball and swimming, is the best thing for our sports. We do not need to preach to the choir. We want to spread our sports to others who do not have any knowledge of “The Only Universal Sports” – COCKFIGHTING.

I posted in facebook early this year that someday, Cockfighting School Curriculum will be taught in schools.

Then I found this facebook album that have clinics for intermediate school students to learn the history, culture and tradition of cockfighting. As well as its business aspects.

Now, there are facebook news feed posts about the same clinic but in videos.

Let’s watch these videos.

Mexico: Be Aware of Oppressive Laws Against Owners of Animals (Farmer, Breeder, Sportsman, Pet Lover)

Repost

At the bottom is a bill (proposed law) in Mexico. It must be stopped.

LIBERTY: FREEDOM of EVERYTHING

Progressive Laws are becoming the norm.

But Oppressive Laws are always at hand because of sheeple. The lobbyists manipulate sheeple to vote for these oppressive laws. It is in the lobbyists’ interest because it is their only financial income – their so called non-profit organizations. Which are in fact, big salaries and expenses budget for these lobbyists. These lobbyists do not have a purpose in life.

Liberty as the PRIMARY RULE will stop these mind control on sheeple.

  • How can a non-animal owner tell an animal whisperer how to talk with animals?
  • What can a liberty hater tell to a liberty lover?
  • What can an ignorant person tell to an expert person?

I mentioned in previous articles that I grew up with animals (water buffalos, cattle, hogs, dogs, geese, chickens) meaning raising them from womb to grave.

I loved seeing as a child:

  • my first calf
  • my first piglet
  • my first puppy
  • my first goose chick
  • my first chicken chick

I enjoyed their growing days, weeks, months, years.

Our animal pets have done their purpose in life.

  • Buffalo plow our land, provide us meat and skin as food
  • Cattle provide us beef
  • Hogs provide us pork
  • Dogs provide us guard, hunting companion and meat too (for me, char grilled skin then marinaded them in species and vinegar)
  • Geese provide us guard, eggs and meat
  • Chickens provide us eggs and meat
  • Gamecocks provide us Sports Individuality

I butchered my chickens, my hogs and my dogs before high school. Our buffalos, cattle and hogs are common diet to me as a child even today. We raised gamecocks to fight. We do not sell gamecocks as a living but do sell very few if they do not end up in the table.

I also enjoyed using leather products – seats, belts, shoes, backpacks. Be it buffalo leather, cattle leather, hog leather, etc.

Farming and raising animals is a dedication and livelihood. Financial budget dictates the best care you can provide. But the important thing to remember, these animals are yours. No one must tell you how to care for your animals. As no one can tell a battleground general how to wage war at that moment.

For chicken industry, backyard raisers have their own ways and means. Same goes with commercial poultry (broilers and layers) whether outdoor free range farming or indoor cage farming. Gamecock raisers also have their own ways and means. All of these different kinds of raisers have their rights to do whatever they need be done with their animals. It is in their own best interest to care for these animals. It is their money to buy feed, vet meds, facilities, equipments, etc.

Obviuosly, I consider my self a freethinker and not a sheeple. I fight for individual liberty. Not mind controls – which are actually financial gain to the one doing the mind control.

  • Have you donated to a cause because you were manipulated without you knowing it?
  • Have you volunteer to do a cause yourself instead of donating?
  • Have you voted for oppressive laws?
  • Have been oppressed with these laws?
  • Do you think on your own to know the truth?
  • Do you just obey and not want to learn the truth?

Guess, let’s refresh our minds about freedom and choice. And individual liberties.

Freedom of Religion

You can be either a devote catholic, a non-practicing catholic, a devote muslim, a non-practicing muslim, etc. As long as you do not make your religious beliefs into LAWS then you are respecting Liberty. Thus, you have not done a crime against liberty.

Freethinkers, atheists, agnostics, humanists, etc. champion Liberty of everyone including religious people. Freethinkers do not oppress catholics by making LAWS against the practice of christianity. Catholics can practice catholic monogamous marriage, catholic baptism, catholic burial, catholic pro-life, etc.

But catholics are oppressive by making LAWS against abortion, divorce, cousin marriage, child marriage, polygamous marriage, same sex marriage, etc. Also catholics meddle on condom and other contraceptives usage by non-catholics. Catholics do tend to forget the separation of state and church. They forget that they are not the only people of a nation or of the world. They are still in a crusade against non-catholics. Subconsciously or consciously. At war to conquer non-catholics.

Same goes with most religions.

Freedom of Profession

Prostitution as a legal profession exist already in most countries and must be spread to all countries and all cities of the world. Prostitution is honest professional work. Prostitutes deserve respect like engineers, scientists, etc. It must be respected by all mankind. You may choose to not do it but respect others who choose to do it.

Do you say Legal Engineer? Or Legal Scientist? If not, no need for the term – “Legal Prostitute”. Prostitution endeavors are equal to engineering and scientific endeavors. Prostitute is an individual who provide services like an engineer or a scientist provides services.

Freedom of Body

Alcohol, abortion, cigar, marijuana, etc. are personal choices. It is must be respected by all mankind. You may choose to not do it but respect others who choose to do it.

Freedom of Love

Child marriage, cousin marriage, same sex marriage are equal to heterosexual marriage. They are legal in most countries or population of the world. It is must be respected by all mankind. You may choose to not do it but respect others who choose to do it.

Polygamy are equal to monogamy. It is legal in most countries or population of the world. It is must respected by all mankind. You may choose to not do it but respect others who choose to do it.

We Are Cockfighters – FIRST

  • We are LIBERTY activists for all liberties in the world, FIRST.
  • We are parents, friends, acquaintances, etc., SECOND.
  • We are christians, muslims, capitalists, nationalists, etc., VERY LAST. (Mind controls are the cause of wars in this world. To exterminate others not with the elites who rule their group’s mind control. We need to keep these mind control ideologies in private if you cannot live without them. And THINK of LIBERTY for ALL in public.)

Cockfighting As Religion

  • LIBERTY is our goal. Cockfighters respect LIBERTY of everyone.

Cockfighting As Political Party

  • LIBERTY is our goal. Cockfighters respect LIBERTY of everyone.

General Measure of dignity and respect towards animals

Sep 12, 2011 (Read source; these are translated by google)

Reason

Achieve an ecological balance and a healthy environment should be a priority in the work of all government. Among these features include the dignified and respectful treatment to be given to the animal species in order to avoid cruelty against him and fight for a more responsible society.

Both the national and international legal framework has included the term animal welfare as a pillar of protection and care of animals. This well is based on the idea that human beings have a responsibility to provide conditions that not only minimize their suffering, but to help them reach their full potential.

In order to promote this important issue within the international community, the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA for its acronym in English) has developed the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare (UDAW), an instrument that sets out basic principles to create more awareness for individuals and restrict the actions we have over animals. It recognizes not only that animals are sentient beings and therefore deserve due consideration and respect, but also that humans co-exist on this planet with other species to form an interdependent ecosystem.

Now it is our duty to develop an adequate legal framework to eradicate animal cruelty and welfare needs of these beings, considering that the culture of a country also note the treatment given to all living beings.

From the analysis made by experts and animal welfare organizations who participated in forums held in recent months, one can conclude that the animal welfare issue goes beyond environmental issues and public health in the area confined mainly to the collective ethic . Organizations converge on the urgent need for measures that promote decent and responsible treatment of animals, since there are various problems caused by the abuse of these beings.

In recent years we have witnessed countless scenes of abuse to all animals, situations that cause them pain,unnecessary suffering or stress, which range from negligence in the care commodities (such as the omission in the provision of shelter, food and / care or veterinary appropriate) to acts of torture, mutilation or cruel sacrifice and intentional. These actions by themselves are unjustifiable and morally reprehensible, can also lead to damage to society as a) the negative effects of overpopulation of animals originated on the street and b) causing violence among the systematic mistreatment of animals .

a) The overpopulation of animals can generate not only environmental problems, but public health and social activities, mainly for animal attacks that are not under the care of responsible people. Another consequence of overcrowding are zoonotic diseases that are generated by direct contact with animals not receiving proper veterinary care. [i]

In this regard, it should be mentioned that in the capital alone there are around 120,000 stray dogs, which produce from 1.080 to 1.800 tons per month of feces, according to Public Health Services of the City, which can lead to environmental pollution or food and, therefore, respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases. In addition, annually treats between 16 and 18 thousand people from dog bites.

b)    The actions committed against animals bear some relation to the violence perpetrated against others. Among the sociological and criminological studies have examined this link is the investigation of Merz-Perez, Heide and Silverman entitled child cruelty to animals and subsequent violence against humans , which found a significant relationship between actions. Also, Hensley, Tallichet and Dutkiewicz, arrived in 2009 to the same conclusion even after considering demographic variables such as people, their education level and location of your home.

In this sense, the Animal Welfare Foundation of Argentina has indicated that individuals who abuse animals are 11 times more likely to commit violent crimes than those who never have. That is, the care of animals is not only an ethical issue or environment, but one more element to avoid the culture of violence.

One solution to the problems outlined above it is the regulation of the dignified and respectful treatment of animals by their guardians or caregivers [ii] (both breeders, trainers, animal care centers, etc.). because They are responsible for meeting the physical, psychological and environmental impact of animals and to prevent any risk they may cause to the community (potential aggression, disease transmission or damage to third parties).

The importance of these actions can be dimensioned considering the number of p erros donated by their owners to rabies centers is three times the crews picked up by dogs. T n only in the Federal District, during the year 2010 26.839 sacrificed pet rabies in the two centers that depend on Veterinary Public Health Services of the Federal District, [iii] and only 1 in 10 animals at- street that come to these centers are claimed by their owners.

It added that in 3 out of 10 households have a dog confined, tied or living on the roof, while only 10 percent have responsible owners (the rest spend most time on the street without care or necessary vaccinations ). In Mexico City, for example, only in two years attended the Animal Surveillance Brigadade 7.013 complaints related to animal abuse, aggressive animals, voluntary surrenders, animal rescue and wildlife and pets that cause discomfort to the population, channeling 587 animals to the Canine Control Centers for causing personal injury. [iv]

To this is added as the abuse inflicted on animals used in public performances such as circus horses and ponies go up to 96% of the time strings tied to short length, the tigers and lions spend between 75 and 99% of the time in cages located in the trucks and the elephants spend from 58 to 98% less time chained to the leg, according to the organization Animal Defenders International (ADI) . [v]

All this highlights the need for a legislation from the federal level, the bases for local laws and state and municipal governments in a coordinated and uniformly apply the same measures dignified and respectful treatment of animals, promoting a new environmental ethic.

Current legal framework

The Congress, exercising its powers, has amended various jurisdictions to legislate animal protection and welfare, but without a clear purpose or uniform policy. For example, the General Law of Ecological Equilibrium and Environmental Protection states that the preservation and sustainable use of wildlife should consider, among other criteria, promoting dignity and respect to animal species in order to prevent cruelty against him, subject to be regulated by the three tiers of government according to Article 87 Bis 2 of that order.

Also, the Animal Health Act lays the groundwork for the diagnosis, prevention, control and eradication of pests and diseases that affect animals as well as to ensure their welfare, which is defined as “all activities aimed at provide comfort, tranquility, protection and security to the animals during breeding, maintenance, use, transport and slaughter, “thereby reducing the protection of those animals for human consumption. However, despite its purpose is animal health, the Act also includes articles that regulate the protection of domestic animals, thereby reinforcing the power of Congress to legislate on the subject: [vi]

Article 21 .- The owners or occupiers of domestic or wild animals in captivity , they must provide food and water in adequate quantity and quality according to their species and stage of production.

Animals should be subject to a preventive medicine program under the supervision of a veterinarian, and must be checked and serviced regularly. Also they provide immediate care for illness or injury.

Article 23 .- The humane killing of any animal not intended for human consumption , only be justified if their welfare is compromised by the suffering he causes an accident, illness, disability or senile disorders, possibly after consulting a veterinarian except for those animal species that for whatever reason, the Secretariat or the Secretary of Health and Environment and Natural Resources, to determine as a threat to animal or human health or the environment.

The slaughter of animals intended for slaughter shall be conducted according to the techniques of killing as determined by the Secretariat.

The animal health provisions establish the measures, conditions and procedures for stunning and slaughter of animals.

For its part, the Wildlife Act is aimed at conservation and sustainable use of wildlife. However, it also contains provisions to regulate feral populations, ie those specimens of domestic species, to be beyond the control of man, set out in the natural habitat of wildlife and which allows the application of measures for their control and eradication.

In addition to the aforementioned provisions, the Ministries of Agriculture, Livestock Development , Fisheries and Food and Health, Mexican Official Standards issued to regulate the treatment should be given to pets but from a focus on the animal health, as is the case with the following rules:

a) NOM-042-SSA2-2006 on sanitary specifications for canine care centers;

b) NOM-033-ZOO-1995 on humane killing of pets;

c) NOM-045-ZOO-1995 on animal health characteristics for the operation of establishments where animals are concentrated fairs, exhibitions, auctions, flea markets and similar events, and

d) NOM-051-ZOO-1995 on the mobilization humane treatment of animals.

As can be seen that the existing provisions on animal protection are dispersed, making them insufficient to meet animal welfare problems that arise in the country. Added to this is that almost 30 years of the enactment of the first state law on the subject, not all states have laws and they do have are extremely heterogeneous in terms of animal protection and social participation.

In other words, existing legislation as well as being confusing and ambiguous lacks a common thread to seek humane treatment of all animals, not just those used for human consumption or considered wild.

Thus, the approval of a General Law on dignity and respect to Animals (same that is based on fractions XXX XXIX-G and Article 73 of the Constitution) is necessary to promote a new environmental ethic and provide authorities the three branches of government of an effective legal framework that allows them to punish behavior that affect the welfare of animals, which come to cruelty, abuse and unjustified killing. This must be rectified in the gaps and inconsistencies in current legislation.

Proposal

The animal welfare implies not only provide basic care such as health, adequate food and rest area to protect them from inclement weather. It also includes measures that allow them to develop the activities of its kind. In this way, people must commit themselves to a series of obligations focused on meeting the physical, psychological and environmental impacts of animal at all times prevent the damages that may result to the community or the environment, either by aggression, disease transmission or damage to persons and property.

Taking into account the above, this law is based on several principles. The first and foremost is the recognition that the care and protection of animals lies directly with their guardians, from the maintenance of the animal according to their physiological requirements to their consideration as being with the establishment of a link and therefore , can not be abandoned. This responsibility involves avoiding uncontrolled reproduction of animals and the harm that might cause to third parties, which binds to the second principle: the respect due to people who do not live with animals.

Thus, among the measures proposed to ensure dignified and respectful treatment of animals are the following:

  • It establishes the fundamental principle that those responsible for animals should seek the same care to all , regardless of whether they are home, work, sports, used for exhibitions or shows.
  • It identifies actions to be taken to prevent uncontrolled reproduction of animals, emphasizing the importance of the campaigns of sterilization and adoption of animals as the most effective measures to solve the problem of overpopulation.
  • The prohibition of underage entry to any show which avoids pain or suffering to animals.
  • It establishes the gradual disappearance of circuses that use animals, and the ban on bullfighting, bulls and calves as of January 2012 .
  • The ban on media dissemination activities that foster animal abuse as the case of bullfighting. (According to a survey by Parametría last year, 90% of Mexicans approve of this measure).
  • The establishment of prohibitions such as skinning animals alive, involved in fights of any kind, selling them in the street, slaughtered for no reason , among others.
  • The regulation of the delivery and sale of animals , as well as care and treatment to be given to those identified as abandoned.
  • The citizen participation in the care and protection of animals.
  • The regulation of establishments that for whatever reason have contact with animals. In particular, it refocuses the work of the so-called centers for rabies control centers and animal care , which seek a harmonious relationship between society and animals.
  • The inclusion in the plans and programs of study of preschool, primary and secondary, as well as textbooks,contents that promote a culture of respect for animals .
  • It states that the use of animals in research or experimentation is justified only when absolutely necessary for the study and advancement of science, and provided that there is an alternative method of the replacement, taking into account that there are now advanced procedures such as cultures in vitro, movies, computer models, etc..
  • It states that the management and use of animals for teaching and research, institutions must develop training programs on protection and respectful treatment of animals by raising awareness of students and teachers in the experimental animal.
  • The establishment of restrictions for the possession of exotic or different from those traditionally considered as pets.
  • It is established that the states must annually allocate sufficient resources for the operation of the Centers for animal care and control and the Center for Conservation and Research Wildlife in order to fulfill the functions mentioned in this Law and the Law General Wildlife, respectively.
  • The regulation of anonymous complaint against infringements committed against the provisions of this law.

In short, it ensures the protection of the 5 “freedoms” of the animals that are recognized in the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare: 1) that are free from hunger, thirst and malnutrition; 2) of fear and anxiety, 3) physical and thermal discomfort, 4) pain, injury and disease, and 5) they are free to express normal patterns of behavior. Also included are the three “R’s” that serve as a guide to provide adequate treatment: to reduce animal overpopulation, to refine the experimental methods and replace animals with the latest techniques.

For all the above, and in accordance with the provisions of Article 73, paragraph XXIX-G and XXX of the Constitution of the United Mexican States, I submit for the consideration of this Honorable Assembly the following:

Note: For no religion folks, replace the word “Lord” with the word “Liberty” as it is sung in this song. I think it will be universal when you do.

One love, One heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One Love)
Hear the children crying (One Heart)
Sayin’ give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Sayin’ let’s get together and feel all right

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love)
There is one question I’d really love to ask (One Heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Believe me

One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One Love)
So shall it be in the end (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
One more thing

Let’s get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (One Love)
So when the Man comes there will be no no doom (One Song)
Have pity on those whose chances grove thinner
There ain’t no hiding place from the Father of Creation

Sayin’ One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
I’m pleading to mankind (One Love)
Oh Lord (One Heart)

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let’s get together and feel all right

Letter From A Reader: It Saddens Me That Our Country Has Less Freedom Today Than It Has Ever Had

A letter from a reader and individual liberty lover. Hope you all share and spread our article Slogans for the Youths.

- Gameness til the End

Sir–

I appreciate your efforts on behalf of all of us who desire liberty of action. It saddens me that our country has less freedom today than it has ever had. I hope you are successful in your cause but, I fear that people no longer understand liberty. They have forgotten. They think that if they don’t like something or they don’t believe in it, then you should not be allowed to do it. Someday, the infringement of liberty by government will land close to home for them and only some of them will realize it because most have apparently lost their desire for freedom.

Your website does a great job defining the issue as one of freedom rather than simply a desire to fight gamecocks. I think all men who desire freedom should take up your cause if for no other reason because, we are told that we can’t.

At the same time, we should all remember that we must also respect the liberties of others. We have to recognize that our personal disapproval of an activity does not constitute justification for making it illegal even if we find that we are in the majority. Currently, there are many ongoing efforts from various groups to either obtain a liberty they have never had or to regain a liberty they have lost. I think the way forward is for us all to unite and refocus the debate on the real issue which is liberty and not cockfighting, gay marriage, polygamy or marijuana.

Unfortunately, I don’t know how to make that happen but I appreciate your effort greatly.

Respectfully,


John Webb

Sociological Approach on Cockfighting by a University Student: Second Contribution From A Cockfighter and Reader of Our Site

HBJ is writing a research for one of his University course class. The research is still going on and below is one of the materials he might be using as a reference.

- Gameness til the End

I have lots of opinions on these different values you mentioned. But I will defer it to the internet. Like one of our member got a site about “Gameness til the End” – with tagline ” Cockfighting From All Over The World – The Only Universal Sports – 8000BC – An Individual Liberty”.

Deciphering this tagline:

1. From All Over The World

It is enjoyed by era of chinese dynasty, indian empire of rajah, burma civilization, indonesian civilization, greeks, etc. – I used “world” word as in time – not the globe or earth or country.

2. The Only Universal Sports

It is practiced in most countries.

3. 8000BC

This must be an emphasis that cockfighting is really old.

4. An Individual Liberty

Noone is hurt, cocks are property of the owner or cockfighter, why would someone tells you what can you do with [your own] property.

These four is enough for decent man.

No more about religious and/or cultural reasons. even some are clinching in these two reasons. As they forgot they have the laws in their side and only the liberty tramplers are blinding the legislature with false facts and political support. (more on these stuff at our members site at http://gtte.bittergame.com). He mentioned it is unconstitutional and oppressive to ban cockfighting in united states. I will add that the same oppression is in Pakistan, Europe (except part of france or other euro countries I am not aware of), Indonesia, etc.

To think Netherlands must be the most progressive liberty – I wanted to know if cockfighting is legal there.

Our friend is trying to spread cockfighting to the youth as they are the generation that will benefit the fight we won in our lifetime. that is to bring back cockfighting in the united states and all countries.

His website is looking for contributor on from all countries about cockfighting traditions and if legal about current events.

Lastly, he predicted cockfighting be legalized in 10 years from now. 2021. In all United States.

I will add not just in united states but in the whole wide world. World, this time, as countries, with us working together and not not just Texans or Chicagoans. or Indonesians? We need to stand up for our sports. In all of countries.

Our friend, told me that someone wrote the United Nations about the oppression on cockfighting.

I think we need to be signatories in that letter to the united nations. Are you with us?

If you are with us. It will not jeopardized your family. as we are not yet doing an armed revolution that might happened again in the United States history. Check out [our] friend site for the american revolution article. What we are doing is to spread cockfighting to all our friends, networks, the internet, twitter, facebook, youtube, etc. esp. to kids. as they are the voters of bringing back cockfighting as legal again.

We do not tell you to arrange a cockfight event in your place. But we ask you to spread the word about cockfighting sports. Cockfighting industry. Cockfighting hobby. Cockfighting lifestyle. etc.

Basketball, Football, Baseball, Billiards, Table Tennis, Chess, ….

We all enjoy playing some of these popular sports that are broadcast on TV. These are both an exercise to our body, mind, and well being. These are also a source of friends. These are indeed a lifestyle of sorts. How often do you play them. Once a week? Twice a week? Once a month? Once a year? Why do you play these sports? What are these sports to you?

These are some of the sports and individual liberties that are not banned yet:

  1. Basketball
  2. Football
  3. Baseball
  4. Golf
  5. Boxing
  6. Cycling
  7. Poker
  8. Billiards
  9. Chess
  10. Table Tennis
  11. Tennis
  12. Mixed Martial Arts
  13. All others in Olympic Games and on TV

Let us hope these will not be banned by liberty tramplers and elitist group which always plan for a world order domination over practical fun loving folks like us – cockfighters, breeders, and farmers.

These are some of the individual liberties that are gaining grounds.

  1. (Medical) Marijuana
    • California
  2. Same Sex Marriage
    • In Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Washington, D.C., marriages for same-sex couples are legal and currently performed.
    • The Coquille Indian Tribe in Oregon also grants same-sex marriage.
    • In New York, Rhode Island, and Maryland, same-sex marriages are recognized, but not performed

The ban on these individual liberties generates ingenuities.

  1. Bigamy-> Life Partnership
  2. Polygamy -> Life Partnership
  3. Cousin Marriage and Child Marriage -> Life Partnership
  4. Prostitution -> Escort Service

The ban of these individual liberties were overturned and those who enjoy them are living their chosen lives again.

  1. Consumption of Alcohol
    • 18th Amendment overturned by 21st Amendment

As cockfighters and farmers of gamecocks

  1. We work hard to have similar to the 21st Amendment
  2. We work hard to have our sports enjoyed by all ages publicly and on TV

COCKFIGHTING FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD – THE ONLY UNIVERSAL SPORTS – 8000BC – AN INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY

Cockfighting is a 365 days a year sports – breeding, caring, training, punctuated by 10 seconds, 10 minutes, or 2 hours of cockfight in the cockpit. All these activities are exercising your mind and body every second of the day. I will say that it is a healthy sports to play.

What is Gamefowl?

Our Facebook Page you may LIKE it: facebook.com/CockfightingFromAllOverTheWorld

Gamecocks or Game Chickens are Gamefowl. But we are forgetting that Gamefowl or Galliformes are an order of heavy-bodied ground-feeding domestic or game bird, containing turkey, grouse, chicken, quail, ptarmigan, partridge, pheasant, peafowl, and the Cracidae.

Our term of gamefowl, instead of gamecock, was adopted by those oppressed cockfighters to get support from other sportsmen including those breeders, raisers, and hunters of turkey, grouse, quail, partridge, pheasant, and Cracidae.

Some of the notable cockfighting books always used the word “gamecock” or the word “game chicken”. Not the word “gamefowl”. Use the word “gamecock” for both male and female of our game chicken breed. Instead of using the word “gamefowl” to refer to both sexes. From eggs, to chicks, all ages of your gamecock strain of chickens.

This is what this site been using – gamecock. The only “gamefowl” word in this site is written by the original author.

This site wants to reeducate everyone using the word “gamefowl” to refer to the word “gamecock”. There is nothing wrong about it. Only the word “gamefowl” also includes all these other birds or aves.

As an individual liberty cockfighter, you are expected to used the word “gamecock” and the word “cockfighting” everyday. Stop using the word “gamefowl”. We want you to be specific, use the word “gamecock” instead. If you only have chickens, also change your farm name from “YOURFARMNAME Gamefarm” to “YOURFARMNAME Gamecock Farm”.

Turkey is a gamefowl. Pheasant is a gamefowl. Quail is a gamefowl. Meat chicken is a gamefowl.

Gamecock strain of chicken is the fighting chicken.

Gamecock eggs. Gamecock chicks. Gamecock pullets. Gamecock hens. Gamecock cockerels. Gamecock stags. Gamecock roosters.

PS.

Also to help these oppressed cockfighters, this site also use “gamefowl” as one of the tags.

Are you an oppressed cockfighter? When are you going to be a revolutionary? Just like our patriots in the american revolutionary war, where they stand up and fight for their ideals of not paying for taxes on tea without representation.

PPS.

All of these videos are about American Revolution today or in the near future. But they are talking about different American Revolutions. Some about Rights. Some about Financial. Some about Identity. Some about Culture. Some about Politics.

You can see, we, the American people, has a lot of problems right now that will need to be resolved for us to continue what our Founding Fathers started.

As most of blogs here are about Individual Liberty which were lost by Real Americans when the liberty tramplers succeeded on legislating new laws that are unconstitutional and oppressive.

I support all individual liberties and here is a partial list.

  • cockfighting
  • hunting
  • fishing
  • bullfighting
  • dogfighting
  • horse racing
  • pigeon racing
  • dog racing
  • dog sledge race
  • falconry
  • laboratory animals
  • polygamy
  • sex industry
  • same sex marriage
  • cousin marriage
  • child marriage
  • drug
  • human cloning
  • genetic modification
  • cyborg

My American Revolution is about Individual Liberty. What is yours?

The liberty tramplers (aka animal rights lobbyists) might accused these boys of animal cruelty

These boys reminded me of myself. How I chased these chickens until they are tired and just try to hide due to exhaustion. I grow up around chickens (gamecocks), pigs, geese, water buffalos, cattle, and dogs. We raise them from young until they are given away, butchered, sold, and in case of gamecocks either die in the cockpit or become one of the chosen few brood cocks to propagate their genes to the next generation.

The liberty tramplers (aka animal rights lobbyists) might accused these boys of animal cruelty. These bunch of misfits… err lawyers do not have anything to do but brainwash young minds. If you are still of young age, I hope you grow up with your own intuition of how things are. Just think, these domesticated animals are properties of the farmer. No one must interfere with the farmer action towards his animals. Even the law and the constitution is on the side of the farmer. Nevertheless, law makers and judges are writing and interpreting laws according to their own minds and not abiding with the constitution and the bill of rights and amendments. What are these people trying to make of this world?

Cockfighting in the United States of America will be back and will be stronger. And it will signal the change of time.

I am sure that all of you liberty advocates out there are thinking that a LIBERTY REVOLUTION is due in the United States of America. You may leave me a message so that we can organized better. I am proposing that we create an UNITED NATIONS OF LIBERTY as the UNITED NATIONS is not up for its name anymore. Too much democratic and bureaucratic process. Too much economic agenda. We live to enjoy life. Not a political one nor financial one. Just enough money to buy food and shelter, to share our wealth with our neighbors, and to enjoy our chosen past time.

And cockfighting is the battle cry of our liberty revolution. And we will conquer all liberty trampling laws and stereotypes on drugs, sex, child marriages, cousin marriages, same sex marriages, polygamy, genetic modified foods, animal use, animal sports, animal cruelty, human cloning, cyborgs, human genes engineering, and many more.

- an individual liberty activist, 4 February 2011

PS. Even a day old chick is tasty when deep fried just like wild birds we used to shoot down in our parcel of land with air gun and sling shot. Yes, dogs are tasty too but I only like the grilled skin which are diced then marinated in good vinegar.

Take The Blue Hen Challenge at University of Delaware Research Kid’s Corner

The color of the gamecock on the right is the ideal of the male offsprings of the original blue hen – steel blue.

Bob Carpenter, a true sportsman, had bred the Blue Hen Chickens out of near total extinction. Before Bob died, he was honored by University of Delaware with The Bob (The Bob Carpenter Sports / Convocation Center).

Hallock DuPont was also responsible for perpetuating the Blue Hen Chicken strain of gamecocks.

I invite the young kids to Take The Blue Hen Challenge at University of Delaware Research Kid’s Corner.

Kids, TRUE or FALSE?
1. Delaware soldiers in the Revolutionary War were nicknamed “The Blue Hen’s Chickens” because of their fighting prowess.
2. The Blue Hen Chickens of today are known for their quiet, gentle nature.
3. Blue Hen Chickens occur in other colors besides blue.
4. Blue Hen Chickens lay blue eggs.
5. The Blue Hen Chicken is silent; it does not have a call

Go to the challenge here! (from University of Delaware Research Kid’s Corner) And listen to the Blue Hen rooster calling his mates and crowing! Oops…

Warning: His white ears is a sign that he is not of pure Blue Hen Chicken strain of gamecocks. An outside blood was introduced and the breeder is not careful to select a non-white ear on the succeeding generations.

The Blue Hen Chicken became Delaware‘s Official State Bird on April 14, 1939.

The University of Delaware with its Blue Hen Athletics proudly proclaims these chickens as symbols of true patriotic ideals and the bravery of our ancestors in the American Revolutionary War.

The Fightin’ Blue Hens strain of gamecocks originated from Captain John Caldwell (Captain Jonathan Caldwell) and his troops of the Second Company of Delaware Regiment of 1775. The original hen was of color blue. The troop are said to have staged cockfights and the Blue Hen’s ferocity and success in fighting spread rapidly and the troops’ valor spread too.

Do you know that Gamecock lost by only one vote to Bald Eagle?

It starts with chicks… err eggs (photo source: me). Cockfighting is an Individual Liberty! It is unconstitutional and just plain oppression to enact laws criminalizing a traditional and universal sport. Do you know that Gamecock lost by only one vote to Bald Eagle to be the United States of America official national bird? 7 and 6 votes. And the Turkey got 1 vote. June 20, 1872.

they-started-as-chicks

Gamecock = 6 vote

Turkey = 1 vote

Eagle = 7 vote

Did Ben really want the turkey to be the symbol of the United States of America?


In a letter to his daughter, Benjamin Franklin wrote:

For my own part I wish the Eagle had not been chosen the representative of our country. He is a bird of bad moral character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead tree near the river, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the labor of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a fish, and is bearing it to his nest for the support of his mate and young ones, the Eagle pursues him and takes it from him.

With all this injustice, he is never in good case but like those among men who live by sharping & robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the district. He is therefore by no means a proper emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our country…

I am on this account not displeased that the figure is not known as a Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the truth the Turkey is in comparison a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America . . . He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a bird of courage, and would not hesitate to attack a grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his farm yard with a red coat on.


The idea that Benjamin Franklin preferred the turkey as the national bird of the United States comes from a letter he wrote to his daughter Sarah Bache on January 26, 1784. The main subject of the letter is a criticism of the Society of the Cincinnati, which he likened to a chivalric order, which contradicted the ideals of the newly founded American republic. In one section of the letter, Franklin remarked on the appearance of the Bald Eagle on the Society’s crest.

WHAT IS THE NATIONAL BIRD OF THE UNITED STATES?

May 06, 2011
Corey

The Bald Eagle is the national bird of the United States of America.  It was chosen as the national bird by dint of its inclusion in the National Seal of the United States, which happened by an act of the Continental Congress on 20 June 1782.  The seal had been through multiple iterations by the time it was approved by Congress – three different committees comprising a total of fourteen men had come up with a host of ideas – but it was the Secretary of Congress, Charles Thomson, who was charged with the final design and he, on his own, decided to make a small eagle that appeared in the third committee’s design larger and specifically a Bald Eagle.  No explanation of his decision is known to exist, though he did simply state “The Escutcheon is born on the breast of an American Eagle without any other supporters to denote that the United States of America ought to rely on their own Virtue.”

Benjamin Franklin was famously not happy about the decision to use the Bald Eagle as a symbol of the United States (he preferred the Wild Turkey).  From France he wrote to his daughter expressing his displeasure:

For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him.

With all this Injustice, he is never in good Case but like those among Men who live by Sharping & Robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank Coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the District. He is therefore by no means a proper Emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King Birds from our Country . . .

Bald Eagle image is by Francois Portmann and is used with permission

Of course, in the twentieth century Bald Eagle numbers went into steep decline as the effects of DDT decimated their population.  The banning of DDT and subsequent management of the species led to Bald Eagles being the poster child for the success of the Endangered Species Act.  While Haliaeetus leucocephalus now has a healthy and still growing population and is no longer listed as endangered, many other species in the United States are still in danger of being wiped out of existence.  Here’s hoping that the law that was used to restore the eagle, that is itself constantly under threat, stays strong or is even strengthened so we have many species to celebrate in the United States besides our national bird.

Why Is the Bald Eagle America’s National Bird?

Benjamin Radford, Life’s Little Mysteries Contributor   |   September 13, 2010 09:45am ET


Credit: Wade Eakle, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Along with an official flower and motto, every state has its own official bird. But flying high above them all is the bald eagle, representing the United States of America. Images of the iconic bird can be found just about everywhere, from coins and paper currency to passports and the president’s official seal. But why this bird?

The idea for using the bald eagle to symbolize America was proposed in 1782, when a drawing of the eagle was presented to the newly-formed Congress, according the U.S. National Archives. It was immediately accepted, and soon an olive branch and arrows (representing peace and war, respectively) were included in the eagle’s talons.

The bald eagle was officially adopted as the emblem of the United States five years later, in 1787.

The bald eagle was chosen because of its association with authority and statehood in fact, the eagle had been used as a symbol of governmental power since Roman times.

President John F. Kennedy added to the list of noble descriptors when he wrote to Charles Callison of the National Audubon Society on July 18, 1961: “The founding fathers made an appropriate choice when they selected the bald eagle as the emblem of the nation . The fierce beauty and proud independence of this great bird aptly symbolizes the strength and freedom of America.”

Given some of the other possible options (crows, hummingbirds, chickens, etc.) the bald eagle seems an obvious choice in retrospect.

The Eagle, Ben Franklin, and the Wild Turkey

Four kinds of birds were suggested in preliminary Great Seal designs:
a two-headed eagle, a rooster, a dove, and a “phoenix in flames.”

Cockfighters Let Us Remember February 1986 Where Liberty Triumphs

As we, the cockfighters of the United States of America and the World, are still fighting for our alienable rights and constitutional rights which were taken away by liberty tramplers, let us learn from Philippine history.

People Power might be another way for us to take back our freedom. We need to be solid in our resolve and will as did the Pilipinos on this moment. So that we can enjoy publicly our universal sports.

Declaration of Independence as originally written by Thomas Jefferson, 1776
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

History

It started as a coup d’etat by the RAM (Reform the Armed Forces Movement) who are idealists but the RAM plot was known by Marcos’ generals so it would have been a failure and they will be charged with rebellion maybe in a court martial. But the Pilipino people protected the rebels with their own bodies and history was made and liberty regained after more than 20 years of Marcos’ dictatorship and Martial Law.

Rebellion for Cockfighting

When will the world stand up and rebel for our universal sports? Will the Americans lead the way? Or the Indonesians? Or the Pakistanis? Or the Thais? Or the Brits? Or the Irish?

Or the Chinese? Or the Russians? Or the Swiss? Or the Aussies?

Or the liberty capital of the world people – the Dutch?

The Afghans regained their liberty to publicly enjoy the sports of cockfighting when the Taliban Rule was eliminated.

We must be united as cockfighters of the world.

Anthem (Handog Ng Pilipino Sa Mundo, “The Gift of the Filipinos to the World”)

Song Chorus
Mapayapang paraang pagbabago.
Katotohanan, kalayaan, katarungan.
Ay kayang makamit na walang dahas.
Basta’t magkaisa tayong lahat!
Changed peaceful manner.
Truth, freedom, justice.
Can be achieved without violence.
As long as we all unite!

Repost

But I beg to differ on author’s view on prostitution, gun, and drug.

I support prostitution as an individual liberty but not as a slavery and human trafficking activities.

I also support drug as an individual liberty. California is becoming open to the idea when it first made an excuse for medical marijuana as legal. I hope CA will broaden its legal drugs to other narcotics.

I also support gun ownership for high power guns. As we are up for a liberty revolution just like we did in the revolutionary war and civil war. I always think of Waco, we will never know if they are guilty of anything criminal.

I have drafted a lot articles on past, present, and future revolutions in the world. People Power is one of the past, Egypt Jan 25 is one of the present, and our liberty revolution is the future.

On GBA, I do not have any personal dealings with GBAs. But I will tell GBAs to toughen their constitutional law knowledge. Also of the Bill of Rights and its Amendments. Do not hire a lawyer or a lobbyist. They maybe too technical and would just ruin your will. Stand up for yourself. You are better equipt with chicken knowledge and farm lifestyle.

I hope everyone of us, cockfighters, will continue this fight of individual liberty in public – prints, books, websites, blogs, facebook, twitter, youtube, radio, tv shows, movies, video games, and school curriculum under animal husbandry.

Remember the story about the sun and the wind. The wind harshly blew strong and he made the man shivers and cover himself.  But the sun shines gently and the man enjoys his life again. We are the sun and the liberty trampler is the wind. We just need to stay the course. And all of lost glory and liberty will be gained back.

The cockfighters of Oklahoma are waking up, standing up and speaking up, we’ve got our legislators attention and they are listening

Hello all,

Economic studies show the gamefowl industry brought in more than $113,000,000.00 dollars a year into rural Oklahoma counties. As cockfighters are seeing the daylight at the end of the dark tunnel as we make our side of this issue public knowledge, the push to repeal the unconstitutional law is gaining ground, more and more of chicken fighters are starting to return to raising gamefowl.

They’re putting brood pens back together and raising chickens again for the first time in 6 or 7 years. A man just two days ago told me he now has over 900 baby chickens on the ground, these baby chickens need feed and water, shelter, worming, warming, vitamins and medication as necessary.

All of this creates jobs, industry and moves money across our Oklahoma economy and the legislators are beginning to comprehend the impact Oklahoma’s gamefowl industry has on rural Oklahoma.

Eight years ago the HSUS came into Oklahoma and manipulated our legislative petition laws and the urban majority to pass a law making it illegal for rural Oklahoma gamefowl owners to own and harvest our livestock. Gamecocks have been harvested by fighting for more than three thousand years it is simply the particular method of harvest for this species of fowl.

The state law against our agriculture industry is depriving rural Oklahomans of our culture and heritage, our pursuit of happiness and liberty (trampling on the very principles of freedom that America is founded on), depriving us our agriculture industry we used to supplement our incomes and feed our families. This unconstitutional law even criminalized ownership of gamecocks and stripped us of our property rights to own our livestock if we intend to harvest our livestock.

After this law was passed law enforcement officers in Oklahoma have made several raids ripping rural families apart, endangering human lives and created many situations that had the potential to result in killing someone out here in rural Oklahoma for harvesting their game chickens.

During one of these raids in Carnegie Oklahoma, law enforcement officers went in with more than 100 Officers, a SWAT unit, and a gun ship helicopter. The Police Officers were absolutely pointing loaded guns at men and women of rural Oklahoma for harvesting their gamecocks. Shoving men and women onto the ground and violating their most basic human rights over chickens. Taking  away their personally owned livestock (property) they were harvesting while trying to earn a living and provide for their families in rural  Oklahoma.

After endangering the lives of these rural Oklahomans the law enforcement officers found NO DRUGS, NO ILLEGAL GUNS AND NO PROSTITUTES the entire threat to human lives created by this raid was to defend livestock (chickens) that were simply being harvested.

I know that the animal rights extremists at the Humane Society think that endangering human lives, potentionally killing people and trampling our inalienable and Constitutional rights to defend a chicken is acceptable but I hope that our legislators are wise enough to reject that idea and will have the courage to repeal this unconstitutional law.

As far as gambling at cockfights that’s a misleading statement, there are gentlemen’s wagers (bets between two people is common) but that’s common on all sports. And the purse money is exactly the same as calf roping contests, pool, golf and dart tournaments, participants put up money to enter and the winner takes the money home it is called general prize funds not illegal gambling.

Neither can you can force, train or make gamecocks fight anymore than you can train, force or make (the BETA fish) Chinese fighting fish fight. This is just the natural instinct that God placed into these creatures (the gamecock) when he created them (it).

Thank you.


Cockfighters across America must wake up, stand up and speak up

Cockfighters across America have allowed the leadership of the  gba’s to condition them to lose.

Run, hide, keep quiet and give us your money while we don’t represent, promote or defend your interests is the message of the gba’s for the last 40 years.

Take two gamecocks 24 months old and spar, them the first  time and they may be unbeatable, but spar them against each other for 10 minutes each pitting, 3 pittings each day for 30 days and you’ll have the two biggest dunghill, ducking donkey’s that ever walked.

In essence and reality you conditioned these brave, noble and unbeatable gamecocks to lose and that  is exactly what the people behind the leadership of the gba’s have done to America’s cockfighters.

The gba’s agenda has been manipulated and guided by people behind the gba’s leaders that are working with the HSUS to keep their overseas chicken peddling businesses from being shut down.

That is their only interest and right now these  big peddlers with dunghill fowl have virtually got a monopoly on the overseas gamecock market and they’ve been using the American cockfighter’s money to protect their chicken peddling to gain protection for their farms and interests from the HSUS socialistic animal extremists agenda by pressing the message “to run and hide” onto cockfighters in return for the protection while small cockfighters across America are being raided every week.

Cockfighters must dump the gba’s that aren’t stepping up and making this a public fight using the written arguments I’ve laid out in the ads I’ve written.

The HSUS and their government cronies can not publicly justify putting chickens above human lives.

America’s cockfighters must unite and stand up as groups and individuals in a grass roots movement and make our side of this argument public knowledge and that will absolutely end the HSUS attacks against American cockfighters.

Thank you.

Cockfighting Will Be Legalized In All of the United States in 10 Years (Cockfighting is an Individual Liberty)

Our Facebook Page you may LIKE it: facebook.com/CockfightingFromAllOverTheWorld

Predictions of known astrologers seems to happen for no reason. Is it really they possess high intelligence or really have the ability to see the future?

I think not. (Or maybe, read PS below.)


But here’s my prediction. Cockfighting will be legalized in all of the United States in 10 years.

Why? Because it is our society’s cry for individual liberties. If you have been reading my previous blogs, these individual liberties are listed there from top of my mind.

How? By making a prediction online, the public must stumble upon this article and one of these readers will be THE ONE. Yes, we need THE ONE to guide us and fight against these oppressive laws against individual liberties.

Where? It will start in Texas. And spread out like fire throughout the United States. So if you are joining us in this LIBERTY REVOLUTION, you have more impact to our movement if you reside in Texas.

How? We will start with peaceful change to the existing laws instituted by the liberty tramplers in State of Texas congress. We can only do this by electing liberty loving representatives. And by creating an INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY PARTY instead of joining democrats and republicans.

So are you THE ONE???!!! Are you Neo?

PS.

During one college summer vacation, while sleeping, I saw in my dream a white paper with the red crayon mark circle around two numbers 20 and 3. Upon waking up around 7 am, I asked my brother to bet on the underground lottery 20 and 3 (not 3 and 20). I gave him P10 and told him to split the money for morning, noon, and afternoon draws. Around 9am, we heard loud knocks, it was the bet taker and we won. I am really surprise to see the paper that the bet taker shown us. It was exactly the paper I saw in my dream. Not similar. It was the paper in my dream. Not sure how it happen as I had no other visions of the future except this paper.

So may I call myself “the Oracle”. What do you call yourself? Morpheus? Trinity? I really hope you will call your self Neo. For we need THE ONE.

This question was posted by FW (I will provide his really name when I got his approval).

And here’s what I wrote in reply or just an exchange of thoughts.

It is also more than 10000 years old. In China archeologists conclude that 10000 years ago there were chickens domesticated in China.

And cockfighting is Universal Sports. From China rulers and India’s rajahs. From Persians and Greeks. From Romans and Saxons. From Pacific Islanders to European Highlanders.

We are in the front of the war against individual liberties. Along with polygamy, child marriages, gay marriages, cousin marriages, sex professionals, genetically modified foods, human cloning, which are all individual liberties.

All of these endeavors were not hurting anyone but just an exercise of our freedom. To chose whatever to pursue happiness.

I have some blogs that hopefully reignite our fight our REVOLUTION in the United States of America at http://gtte.wordpress.com/.

Some of our individual liberties are recognized again in some states. Like gay marriages, cousin marriages, brothels, gm foods, and Utah is on the front of polygamy. They ought to be commendable. Private practice of polygamy cannot be stopped. It should be legal in all states.

Let’s focus on our youths as they will continue our fight for liberty in the United States of America.

Bring them to country fair to show your gamecocks. Help them become gamecock whisperer. Ask them to take care of the chicks early in their life as long as they seems to be enjoying it.

Also invite your children’s friends over to be introduced to farm life and gamecocks. They will spread our sports like fire within their immediate friends as well and to the world.

Again, we have to concentrate on bringing all our unwritten knowledge and historical references on cockfighting in print or in our own website.

Yes, I encourage you all to create your own website and blog site.

I recommend. http://wordpress.com/ or http://weebly.com/.

They are all free and are the most use website platform of all walks of life including by high technology friends of mine and large companies as well. They should be more than enough for our cause. Spread our knowledge of cockfighting in the internet. Make it child friendly and child grabbing attention.

I still need to work on some of these child points on my own web and blog sites. Child grabbing websites and blogs on cockfighting or just plain farm life. Where children learn to take care of animals from birth/egg to adult animals.

Do it now. Start your own websites and blog site.

How?
1. open an email at http://gmail.com/ (do not use yahoo or any other; just gmail)
2. create an account (website and blog) at http://wordpress.com/ or http://weebly.com/
3. make it child grabbing and child friendly.
4. publish your blog and website in http://facebook.com/ and http://twitter.com/

Fight! We are the liberty revolutionaries today and our children will continue our fight for our individual liberties.

Wall Street Journal Asia Covering 2011 WSC-1 Finals (Cockfighting is a Livelihood and an Industry)

Our Most Important Featured blog: Cockfighting Will Be Legalized In All of the United States in 10 Years

Our Facebook Page you may LIKE it: facebook.com/CockfightingFromAllOverTheWorld

Ted, a journalist of Wall Street Journal Asia, told me he is there to cover the event for an article and it will be published both on print and online. As we warmed up chatting about the event, I told him that a lot of articles I have read in the past by journalists covering the sports of cockfighting will often pretend to be written by ignorant journalists.

They wrote about the sports as if it is not an universal sports that is older than any sports known to be popular today. They always use “blood sports” to describe cockfighting. Why placed an adjective? Why not just sports? Are they just trying to poison the minds of young kids about cockfighting?

These journalists pretending to be factual on their articles but they in fact described cockfighting to imply that it is barbaric in nature because they never encountered cockfighting nor can they fathom cockfighting greatness.

So I told him about some of my first hand experiences on laws against individual liberty.

  • Farmer plants a tree and when it is harvest time the government requires a logging permit. Why? I planted this tree on my own parcel of land!
  • Chicken farmer hatches eggs and raises chicks to adult chickens. The government enacts laws against individual liberty and criminalized cockfighting and even transportation of chickens with intent of cockfighting. Why? These are my chickens which I hatched and raised.

These two examples are mentioned because these are in fact properties of the farmer namely plants and animals. Why does anyone or the law mind my own business. It is unconstitutional and an oppression of individual liberties.

I hope he is just busy and did not forget sending an email with link of the article he wrote.

  • visited http://asia.wsj.com/ and searched for “cockfighting” and “world slasher cup” and “araneta coliseum” produced no results

Looking forward to whatever he wrote. I hope he remembers our chat at the event’s dining area. And maybe the side of cockfighters will be proudly written and not just quoted.

What about journalists writing about cockfighters in the level of Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan. We the cockfighters of our time have witnessed, followed, and read about our living legends of their time in this sports of cockfighting.

Recently in 20th century, we have Madigin group and Kelso group who were all wealthy and with large businesses in oil or/and stocks and also horse racing. We also have Bob Carpenter of Delaware who University of Delaware named after their sports center The Bob (The Bob Carpenter Sports/Convocation Center). Bob is a true sportsman from horses, dogs, gamefowls and gamecocks. Bob bred the Blue Hen strain of gamecocks out of near total extinction. Hallock DuPont was also responsible that the Blue Hen strain of gamecocks is perpetuated. We also have President Jimmy Carter who is a democrat as a friend of cockfighters if not a cockfighter himself. William McRae named his own personally bred strain of gamecocks to Jimmy’s political party – Democrats. Boxing greats of our time, Roy Jones, Floyd Mayweather, and Manny Pacquiao are all cockfighters. Roy owns a cockpit in Louisiana before August 2008. Manny owns Pasay City Cockpit. San Miguel Purefoods’ Philippine Basketball Association team Derby Ace Llamados was named after gamecocks.

With still several universities and colleges in the United States of America naming their athletics team after gamecocks like the more known University of Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hen and University of South Carolina Gamecocks, there is hope that the youth of today will wake up and think for them self. And say enough with brainwashing and propaganda of Animal Rights groups. We the youth of today want common sense not poisoned minds to prevail. How do you want to be a vegan for life? No animals can be butchered or used in anyway. And what about genetically modified vegetables and plants? Yes we the youth of today want technologies to help improved these plants now in the laboratories. Why wait for a natural mutation that might take million of years. Change the genes now modify the plants’ genes now.

Common, enough with these insane lobbyists and liberty tramplers.

Hope some journalists will become a cockfighter even if they grow up in a city where all meats and vegetables are packed. No harvesting nor butchering.

I grow up around animals – chickens, water buffalos, cattle, dogs, pigs, geese to list a common array of farm animals in a common backyard. Where kids get to know how these animals give birth or hatch their young. Kids get to know how to take care of these baby animals at very young age. They also have the common sense how to take care of them even if their parents have just followed what were taught of them. These kids grew up to be a “horse whisperer”. Yes, they know more about these animals and they know how to read their animals body or eye language. These kids still knows that these animals will be given away, butchered, sold, work out in the farm, and in case of gamecock fight to the death in the sports of cockfighting. Yes, dogs and water buffalos are butchered too if of no use anymore or if the farmer want to thin his dog population.

This is long enough already for now.

As a child, I liked to watch Southeast Asian Games, Asian Games, and Olympic Games. Wikipedia has the following entries.

The Southeast Asian Games (also known as the SEA Games), is a biennial multi-sport event involving participants from the current 11 countries of Southeast Asia. The games is under regulation of the Southeast Asian Games Federation with supervision by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Olympic Council of Asia.

The Asian Games, also called the Asiad, is a multi-sport event held every four years among athletes from all over Asia. The games are regulated by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) under the supervision of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Medals are awarded in each event, with gold for first place, silver for second and bronze for third, a tradition which started in 1951.

Competitors are entered by a National Olympic Committee (NOC) to represent their country of citizenship. National anthems and flags accompany the medal ceremonies, and tables showing the number of medals won by each country are widely used. In general only recognised nations are represented, but a few non-sovereign countries are allowed to take part. The special case of Taiwan was handled by having it compete as Chinese Taipei, due to the political status of Taiwan.

The first Asian games were held at New Delhi in 1952,which again hosted it in 1982

The 15th Asian Games were held in Doha, Qatar from December 1 to December 15, 2006. The 16th Asian Games will be held in Guangzhou, China from November 12, 2010 to November 27, 2010.

The Olympic Games are an international multi-sport event established for both summer and winter sports. There have been two generations of the Olympic Games; the first were the Ancient Olympic Games (Greek: Ολυμπιακοί Αγώνες; Ell-Olympiakoi Agones.ogg [Olympiakoi Agones] (help·info)) held at Olympia, Greece. The second, known as the Modern Olympic Games, were first revived in the late 19th century.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) was founded in 1894 on the initiative of, Pierre de Coubertin. It has become the governing body of the Olympic Movement, which is defined by the Olympic Charter. The evolution of the Olympic Movement during the 20th century forced the IOC to adapt the Games in several ways. Some of these adaptations include the addition of a Winter Games, a Paralympics, and an Olympic Games for teenagers. The IOC has also had to cope with the changing economic, political, and technological realities of the 20th century. The Olympics began to shift away from the pure amateur athlete as envisioned by Coubertin, they also navigated the Cold War and the overt use of the Games for political gain. The medium of television created the issue of corporate sponsorship and the commercialization of the Games.

The Olympic Movement is comprised of International sports federations, National Olympic committees and organizing committees for each specific Olympic Games. The IOC is the decision-making body. They initiate an Olympic Games by selecting a host city, which is usually announced six to seven years in advance of the Games. The host city is responsible to organize and fund a celebration of the Games consistent with the Olympic Charter. The Olympic program (which consists of the sports to be competed at an Olympic Games) is also determined by the IOC.

The Games have grown in scale to the point that nearly every nation on Earth is represented at a celebration of the Games. This growth has created numerous challenges, including boycotts, the use of performance enhancing drugs, bribery of officials, and terrorism. The Games encompass many rituals and symbols such as the Olympic flag and torch as well as the opening and closing ceremonies. Every four years the Olympics enable athletes, who compete in relative obscurity, the chance to attain national, and in the case of a few, international fame. The Games also afford the populations of host cities the opportunity to showcase their home to the world.

Even now amateur sports are more competitive than professional sports in my opinion. But both is affected by human psyche. Human combatants or athletes are not performing to their full potential.

  • They want to avoid injuries
  • They are thinking of their long term livelihood
  • They are already ahead and just need to win on points
  • They are have no drive to win all the time
  • They do not want to dominate
  • They are not fighting for their life

Gamecocks are not affected by human psyche. Gamecocks are true combatants and their instinct is to hit the other until the other flees. Gamecocks will continue hitting a dead one. Gamecocks instinct ignores any injuries they might have and keep fighting. Gamecocks are bitter and game to the core. They are fighting for supremacy and survival. Different breeds and strains have their style of fighting. Sometimes pierce fighting style – infighting shuffling. Sometimes passive fighting style – deadly counter punching. Whatever the fighting style that is ingrain in their genes, they are always game. Gameness is the will and the action to destroy the other. Paralyzed, broken wings, broken legs, punctured body, lungs full of blood, intestine on the ground, dying. Gamecocks still only thinks of killing the other.

Willing Gladiators Not Slaves (Chicken War and Human War)

The following paragraphs were my correspondence with a friend who had a comment to my Cockfighting – Sports and Lifestyle blog draft before I published it. It started as cockfighting and animal use in sports but I really love what I wrote in the end. The phrase “Willing Gladiators Not Slaves” resonates what it is all about. Gamecocks and Patriotic Men. What do you think?

Friend:

The reason it’s banned in the USA is because it’s cruel, not as an affront to liberty. The mentality of people who think it’s entertaining to see two animals try to kill each other is definitely suspect. Would you watch two dogs killing each other? What about two humans – would you watch a fight to the death with a bucket of popcorn on your lap?

Gameness til the End:

Thanks for your opinion/Qs.

Animal use in sports must be respected by all. Long live to horse racing, dog racing, wild animal hunting, fishing, bullfighting, horsefighting, pigeon racing.

I will support cockfighting & dogfighting when put up in a US vote again TO FIGHT FOR LIBERTY. Also willing gladiators not slaves.

Animal cruelty lobbyist & laws got their day as “the end justify the means”. End – trample liberty and criminalize honest men. Means – animal cruelty law.

Liberty is the #1 requirement for peaceful free society.

USA, France, & other countries even the Philippines were eventually formed at its present form by revolution.

“… inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; … ; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, … “
- Declaration of Independence as originally written by Thomas Jefferson, 1776

I am watching right now an Ireland cockfighting video I bought years ago – a documentary about cockfighting in Ireland by Spotlight Jeremy Adams.

Searching “spotlight jeremy adams” also results to this BBC link – Spotlight wins Royal Television Society Television Journalism award. Spotlight won in the Nations and Regions Current Affairs category for the special investigation The Pit Bull Sting.

I am a liberty and freedom advocate so I respect both side of a story. BUT do not support laws that will restrict others to pursue their happiness and personal matters that do not affect anyone including using their properties like animals in sports.

I would just like to expound on my reply to you about me supporting “willing gladiators not slaves.”.

We currently have different combat sports. Most of which are becoming more of an act rather than real combat. Fighters have no pride and honor in themselves anymore of ending the fight with prowess. I really hope the outcome are not staged or choreographed. They are more concern about promotion, stardoom, acting (instead of real fighting) performance.

News TV on wars around the world are becoming a form of entertainment. We can see from embedded videographers within a platoon or combat unit and their video footages the real war, the real human patriotic courage to fight, and the real damage of war to life and to property.

Some of these soldiers are really thinking that it is their calling to fight for their own nation (or their master the elites) and to liberate (or to oppress) people in these countries. And these are the fortunate ones – gladiators. Some are thinking that they are there because they could not afford college. And these are the unfortunate ones – slaves.

Cockfighting is a sports enjoyed by good honest men (masses and elites alike) from all over the world from pre-historic times, early ages, middle ages, industrial ages, and contemporary times.

Historic figures in cockfighting includes Alexander the Great, Themistocles, Julius Ceasar, Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth, James I, William the 6th Earl of Derby, Charles II, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Napoleon Bonaparte, Andrew Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln.

Famous American cockfighters includes Sanford Hatch, John Madigin, Walter Kelso, Phil Marsh, Herman “Sweater” McGinnis, “Duke” Hulsey, and Will Allen.

Famous Filipino cockfighters includes Ramon Mitra.

(Send me your nationally known cockfighters that are legends for your countrymen, and I will add them here. Preferably from the past 50 years or more.) 

There are different gamecock breeds and strains from different continents and countries. The most famous breed is the American game as it is being used in 5 continents and most regions including the Philippines (cocking capital of the world), Asia, Europe, Australia, South America, and North America (training testing facility only). Other notable gamecock breeds are Indian Aseel, Japanese Shamo, Henan Game, Malaysian Malays, Vietnamese Ga Noi, Indonesian Sumatra, Thai Leung Hang Khao, Thai Pradu Hang Dam, Burmese Game, Old English Game, English Modern Game, Spanish Game, Persian Rumpless Game, Cuban Cubalayas, French Nord Game, Belgian Flamand Game, Filipino Igon, Filipino Parawakan, Filipino Balulang, Filipino Labuyo, and Filipino Tagalog.

Cockfight rules and weapons varies as well. The most famous weapon is the Filipino long knife. Malaysia uses long knife too. Other notable weapons are American Long Heels (American Gaff), Mexican Short Knife, Puerto Rican Postiza, and naked heel or natural spur.

Banned in USA due to laws against liberty and freedom. Greedy lobbyist and ignorant law makers runs the animal cruelty band wagon to trample the rights of free men.

No one love these gamecocks but the cockfighters, handlers, trainers, feeders, and aficionados. Day or night. Sleet or rain. From egg to brood years – multiple winners got to propagate their genes.

Cockfighting is a 365 days a year sports – breeding, caring, training, punctuated by 10 seconds, 10 minutes, or 2 hours of cockfight in the cockpit.

It is the family way of life and sole livelihood to many cockfighter families – just like the beloved sports of horse racing.

Chickens are fought typically as stags, bullstags, and cocks. Chicks may fight as early as a day old ;)

Most important lesson to take from cockfighting is gameness til the end.

Putting On My Old Cockfighting Shoes

LIFE ON A GAME FARM, WEEKENDS AT COCKFIGHTS AND LEARNING TO GAMBLE AT AGE 5

By Jesse Sidlauskas
Photography by Mike Mezeul II
THE MAYBORN (magazine)

TJ holds the red rooster against his chest like a cradled baby as his teenage son Gavin selects the weapon. From a lacquered box, the 17-year-old removes a 1-inch stainless steel blade in the shape of a crescent and tests the sharpness by shaving some hair from the back of his hand. He blows the hair from the blade and walks over to the rooster. Gavin struggles with wax string, trying to secure the blade to the rooster’s left leg. If it’s misaligned by a few fractions of an inch, the knife won’t cut.

For the next 15 minutes, no one talks. Gavin works. TJ holds. It’s like watching a surgery, except we’re standing under a tent by a line of mesquite trees, and there’s a cockfight unfolding 50 yards across a field of Johnson grass and bloodweed. When TJ and Gavin are satisfied with the fit of the blade over the rooster’s spur, Gavin ties off the string and wraps electrical tape around it, then puts a sheath over it.

TJ hands the bird to Gavin, who starts walking to the pit. We follow in a formation behind and beside the fighter, walking like a boxer’s entourage, taking up the entire dirt path that leads to the 8-by-15-foot fighting arena. The walk is a kind of show in itself, as if to announce our support. The crowd clears a path as we approach the fighting pit. A worker weighs Gavin’s rooster and his competitor’s to confirm their weights are within 2 ounces of each other. They match close enough: 4 pounds 5 ounces.

As the two men enter the pit, spectators crowd the sheet metal fence, forcing those in the back to stand on their toes for a look at the birds. The referee removes the sheaths and wipes the blade on each rooster with a wet sponge to prove they are not poisoned. The gamblers call out their bets from all sides of the pit.

“Twenty over here.”

“Veinte en este lado! Veinte en este lado!”

“I bet 10 on this side!”

They nod at one another and pat their chests to confirm their wagers over the noise of the other bettors. The referee draws two lines in the dirt 7 feet apart. He orders the fighters to the center, where they thrust the birds together. The roosters fan their neck feathers, peck and pluck one another before the fighters back up to their lines.

“Pit ’em,” the referee says, and they release the birds. They charge across the pit toward each other, leap and meet midair. Dust stirs beneath their flapping wings. The feathered masses collide again and again. Each collision is like a lightning strike – too fast to see how Gavin’s rooster is faring. Feathers clap against feathers and sound like the shuffling of a deck of cards. Gavin’s rooster starts to jump but ducks to let the other cock fly overhead. But the rooster ducks too soon, and now he’s in trouble.

Before this brush fight, I had never met Gavin and TJ. Another cockfighter introduced us, told TJ that I was writing a story about the sport and asked him to take me to his next fight. He told me to meet him at a gas station the following Sunday at 6 a.m. Cockfighters don’t trust journalists. But a cocker we both trust said it would be OK, and so TJ agreed. Finally, after months of trying to gain entrance into one of the clandestine cockfighting arenas of the Southwest, I would join TJ’s caravan of cockfighters on a trip that would reconnect me with my heritage. My grandpa and my dad were cockfighters. I was raised around cockfighters. Now, at the brush fight with TJ and Gavin, I find myself wondering if time has left the family traditions and culture of cockfighting intact. With laws banning it and newspapers holding it up to public ridicule as a barbaric example of animal cruelty, I wanted to know if everything I cherished about cockfighting as a boy had been turned upside down, and whether the best days of my youth had disappeared forever on the farms and ranches of the Southwest.

Gassing up, TJ and I stand near the pumps, waiting as the tank of his minivan tops out. He’s a thin man with a shaved head. He speaks with a Southeast Asian accent even though he’s lived here for almost 20 years.

“So whatchoo write about?” he asks. “Like, what kind of story is this?”

TJ, as he always does, holds eye contact until I’m done talking, nods his shaved head and looks back at the pump. I try to think of something else to say, but Gavin walks up to the van and TJ asks if we’re ready before anything comes to mind.

“Alright. Jus’ follow me. We be there in maybe two hours.”

I want to trust this mutual friend, but that doesn’t mean faith comes easy. Driving a two-lane Texas highway, we cut through one flat farm pasture after another, gazing at pump jacks bobbing up and down and wheat tops tanning in the morning sun. But as our cockfighters’ caravan careens down the hot asphalt, I find myself pondering a puzzling question:Why should TJ bring a writer he doesn’t know to what is essentially a mass felony? Cockfighters love raising and fighting gamecocks more than anything. They work simply to pay for their expensive hobby. Who’d risk losing that by hauling a writer they don’t know to the cockfight?

The last cockfight I attended was in a barn clearly visible to the world, next to a highway. Inside, people sat in cushioned, second-hand theater seats or ate nachos at the concession stand. It was a tax-paying Oklahoma business. It had a name, Cripple Creek, and there, I had a name. In places where people are better known by their nicknames, the people at the old Oklahoma cockfights I grew up around called me Kid, Caretaker, or more often, I was Jesse the Body because of the loose tank tops that hung from my bony teenage shoulders.

In contrast to the cockfights of my childhood, there is nothing legal about the “brush fight” I’m going to now. Cockfights these days don’t even have real names, only that generic term, brush fight, borrowed from media and law enforcement.

Two days before the brush fight, I was scanning my morning newspaper and spotted a headline: “Sheriff: 3 shot to death at South Texas cockfight.” News stories on cockfighting are so uniformly one-sided that I’m ashamed of the half-truths reported. Journalists arrive at cockfights after the fact, take pictures of dead roosters and seek out lurid quotes from local law enforcement and Humane Society officials.

The first cockfight I remember, I was 5 years old, and my mom took me to watch my dad fight at a place called Blackland in Oklahoma. I got in trouble that day because I got a dollar for the concession stand from my mom, who had a rule against me gambling. I walked around for a while with that dollar, then squeezed into the theater seats behind the old ladies in the front row, who were very good handicappers. When Mom wasn’t looking, I’d tap one of them on the shoulder and ask if they’d bet me a dollar. I always picked the same rooster they did. For a dollar, they never said no, but to spite me, they paid from their coin purses. When we went to leave, I had about $5 in nickels and dimes dragging my shorts down and rattling as I walked. I told Mom I’d only bet on Dad’s roosters, but that didn’t mollify her much. She scolded me all the way back to Texas. Gambling was illegal, she said. The fights were not. Still, she let me keep my winnings.

Over the past 15 years, the fights have been outlawed in New Mexico, Arizona, Missouri, Oklahoma, and, in 2008, Louisiana became the last U.S. state to ban the sport. Some cockers sold their farms, and others left the sport. Others continue to raise the birds; they just don’t fight them. Those that do fight them have moved from the big tin barns where they once fought legally to clandestine arenas thrown together in backyards or tucked away in the woods.

Cockfighting is illegal in all 50 states. It is still legal, however, to raise the birds. Some cockfighters transport their roosters to countries where the sport is still celebrated, such as the Philippines. The ultimate championship of cockfighting, the World Slasher Cup, is held near Manila twice a year in Araneta Coliseum, where Muhammad Ali once fought Joe Frazier in 1975’s Thrilla in Manila. Cockfighting results are published in The Philippine Star, but in the U.S., the leading magazines of the sport are largely gone. The Gamecock, started in 1937, once had a monthly circulation of 13,000 and 200 pages of cockfighting stories, reportage from fights, photos and cockfighting ads. Today, The Gamecock is a quarterly and its circulation has shrunk to one-fourth of what it was in its heyday, says J.C. Griffiths, the magazine’s longtime editor and publisher.

When I was a teenager, I read The Gamecock every month, poring over training strategies, transfixed on pictures of the roosters and completely absorbed by all the cockfighting correspondence from the arenas a half-hour from our North Texas farm as well as the far-flung islands like the Philippines. But most of what I learned about roosters, I learned from my dad – the way every teenager does. It’s our way of life, as much a part of our heritage as tending a herd of cattle. A young cocker learns that the fight is what roosters are born to do. Will some die? Yes, but at least they’re fulfilling their purpose.

“Do your chores, raise them right and put in all the work you can to give them their best shot.”

That’s what my dad taught me, and most young cockfighters were taught the same thing. After a while, it becomes a custom.

My brother and I fed our gamecocks twice a day. Watered them once per day. The roosters had to be dusted for mites and de-wormed once a month, then rotated to new pens and spots around the yard to keep them active. In the winter, when the water pails became ice blocks and the garden hose froze, my brother and I carried our roosters’ frozen water pails into the kitchen, thawed them in hot water, filled them again and returned them to the yard. Water soaked our jeans and boots and mud caked the linoleum floor in the kitchen. But Dad said we had to do it to give our roosters their “best shot” inside the arena.

My brother and I hated the chickens. But we liked the fights. When I was 11, my dad offered a deal. We would select and help him train some roosters for a fight. If we still didn’t care for it, the chickens wouldn’t be our chores anymore. Plus, he’d split whatever money we won, 50-50. For a month, we woke up before dawn each morning, removed the chickens from the stalls in the barn where they slept at night and massaged their sore muscles from the day before, and put them in broad pens with high roosts to strengthen their wings. We spread hay inside their pens so the roosters worked their legs, scratching through the hay to find their feed on the dirt beneath. At night, we moved them back to the stalls, fed, watered and locked them up for the night. In the morning when I didn’t want to wake up, Dad would say, “You only get back what you put into things.” At night, after feeding the other chickens, he’d stand in the barn and remind us once again: “They’ll give back everything you put into them, and then some.”

We went to the fights a month later and won the derby. I remember walking to the car with one of our roosters. A man stopped and asked me if I’d trained him. I told him I had. He asked my dad if the rooster was for sale. I looked at my dad.

“They’re always for sale,” he said to the man. “But it’s his rooster, ask him.”

“Alright. How much will you sell him for?

I looked back at my dad. He shook his head. “Don’t look at me. It’s your rooster. You make the deal.”

I’d never sold a rooster. Even though I had $500 of the money we just won, I picked a number that seemed high to me. “Thirty?”

“Deal,” the man said, and paid me the money.

I was proud of myself for negotiating the deal. On the way home, my dad taught me a lesson in gamecock economics. “It’s not that big a deal since we didn’t really like that rooster, but don’t sell your worst rooster for less than $50.”

I didn’t care. We’d just won the derby and I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to get home and pick more contenders out. I worked over the roosters all that summer through the off-season. I liked the idea that you get back what you put into things, and despite life’s often cruel unfairness, it paid off. We won several derbies the next winter. I always had a hundred dollar bill or two of winnings stashed away in my closet whenever I wanted something. And what I wanted most was a 12-gauge Winchester shotgun, which I won as a trophy at a derby that winter.

So when I set out to find a brush fight five months ago, I had expected to return to the sport to find open doors and offers of iced tea. But it turns out that no one remembers Jesse the Body, or at least, almost no one. I was standing in the middle of a cocker’s game farm on a hot spring afternoon, explaining that I sure would like to see a fight. The owner, a respected cocker with hundreds of roosters, didn’t look up from the rooster’s water dish he was filling to answer me: “They’re here and there,” he said.  “Nothing in the immediate future.” The cocker continued to fill his rooster’s water pails. I watched as he watered the roosters, remembering something my dad would tell us when we were watering the roosters: “Ninety-nine percent of cockfighting isn’t fighting roosters.”

The next day Dad and I sat at the end of a dirt driveway in Thackerville, Oklahoma, the location of an old fighting pit that took the town’s name. The owner, Murle Gregory, lives on the land, but no one answered the door to the brown manufactured home beside a yard full of crowing roosters. We’re about to leave when a Chevy Aero, in front of a billow of dust, approaches the house. The car pulls up next to the house and a 6-foot-tall old man in coveralls steps out and stares at us.

“Mr. Gregory?” Dad says.

“Yeah.”

“Sorry to drop in on you like this. I didn’t have a phone number to reach you. I used to fight chickens over here.”

“OK.”

I ask Mr. Gregory how he feels about the government outlawing cockfighting. He gnaws on a soggy cigarillo and stares at me.

“Well, I don’t know if I can say much about someone taking away my livelihood.”

I ask him to show us around the chicken yard.

“OK,” he says. “Already lost my cellphone, wallet and passport today, might as well look at something that makes me happy.”

Murle’s chicken yard is beside his house in a fenced-off half-acre area shaded by oak trees. He has about 50 young stags in the yard. He limps on one leg as he leads us into the yard, carrying a lacquered cane made of driftwood that he doesn’t actually use. The roosters cluck and drag their wings or rap them against their chests and crow. Some of their families have been on his farm for more than 30 years, he tells us as we stop in front of a red-feathered rooster with red irises. The black rings around its eyelids could have been penciled in with eyeliner. Murle looks at his birds and shakes his head.

“This is my property. They shouldn’t be able to tell me what I can do on my own property. Hell, these are my birds. Who are they to tell me what I can and can’t do with them? I’d die for that. I hope when I die, I’m fighting a good rooster,” Murle says as he walks off in front of us.

We follow him around the yard like this for a half an hour. When we’re done walking around, Murle looks out at his chickens. “They’re beautiful ain’t they?” he asks. “Beautiful inside and out. The way they act; the way they fight, how they won’t quit. I love these birds and that’s something they can’t take from me, can’t run it out of me, can’t beat it out of me because it’s right here,” he taps his left index finger on his temple.

Watching the way TJ and Gavin react when the other rooster broadsides their bird – as if a piece of them was dying in the fight – reminds me of what Murle said: “I hope when I die, I’m fighting a good rooster.” The melee ends with their rooster sliced on the leg, unable to walk. He pecks from the ground, and tries to stand because he doesn’t know what the gamblers know. Some of them forgo the Achillean end game, pay their bets and walk to another fight. TJ watches his son, who cradles the rooster during each break in the fight. He just strokes the rooster’s chest, matching its commitment, doing everything he can. He owes it that much.

The fight is over in a few minutes. TJ and Gavin walk back to their corner of the camp, looking down at their badly maimed rooster with both pity and respect. They simply can’t believe their favorite bird lost. The first time they’d spotted the young stag fighting in their yard, they figured he’d become a champion.

As I watch TJ and Gavin’s rooster get carved up by its rival, I think back to my recent trip to Murle’s game farm and to the news of the dead bodies at a South Texas cockfight. Standing alone and talking to no one, I’m paranoid that some crazy cockfighter will lose one of his prized birds and start shooting up the place. But I’m even more worried federal agents will swoop in and arrest all of us. It would help if I had someone to talk to, but the former cockfighter who rode with me to the fight is talking to an old  buddy he recognized as soon as we parked the truck.

“Your name James Small?” he asked another middle-aged man.

“Yeah,” he says, inflecting the word like a question.

“You ’member me? Richard Joy?”

“Yeah, yeah, I remember you. Man, I didn’t recognize you. It’s probably been 15 years since I seen you.”

“I was just telling him,” my passenger says, pointing towards me, “you used to run around with ole Tim Bigg and we all called y’all Bigg and Small.”

“Oh yeah, Tim was always a crazy son-of-a-bitch,” Small says, taking a sip of a 16-ounce Miller. “I mean actually insane,” he tells me, to clarify he didn’t mean another type of crazy.

“I haven’t seen him in a decade, what’s he up to?”

“Oh, he died, I guess about eight years ago,” my passenger says.

“Really? How?”

“I was told they found him butt-naked in his cockhouse. Think it might have been an overdose or somethin’.”

Small laughs. “That doesn’t surprise me. He always was crazy. Like not right in the head,” the last part, again, an aside for me.

Some of the cockfighters around us have made their camps in the mesquite brush. The sombrero of one bobs above the undergrowth as he uproots a patch of bloodweed to clear the land for his roosters. His wife sits in a lawn chair nearby as his two sons play tag in the tall weeds. Other cockers help each other unload roosters. I consider walking around while Richard and Small share stories, fearing the fighters in the camp will conclude I’m an outsider. I’m relieved when Small finishes his story and he points his beer at me.

“Say, I bet you were related to Chris.”

“That’s my mom.”

“I thought so. I went to high school with your mom.”

Even though I don’t have much to say, this makes me feel welcome to stick around as the two discuss old friends I’ve never met. After a while, I feel comfortable enough to walk to the pit. I pass a man with a cockfighting shirt that reads, “No gano, pero sigue divierto!” (“I don’t win, but I still have fun!”) I sit on a bench by the pit where three older men are telling stories about a notorious cockfighter named Hiawatha. I played Little League with Hiawatha’s grandson and met the old man a few times. A big, gregarious man, Hiawatha was well liked even though everyone knew he was a notorious cheat. I’ve never known a cockfighter who didn’t know a story about him, though I never knew how exaggerated the tales were.

I thought about sharing a story that Murle and my dad had told me a few weeks earlier.

“You remember the day you banned him from your place?” my dad had asked Murle.

“I remember it well,” Murle said.

Hiawatha had been at a nearby pit the day before, Murle told us. He fitted his roosters with rigged gaff spur extensions that looked like steel. But instead of injuring the other rooster, the gaffs would bend. Sure he would lose every fight, Hiawatha had a friend betting against the doomed roosters and winning every bet.

When Murle saw Hiawatha at Thackerville the next day, he warned him that he was wise to the scheme. But Hiawatha walked into the pit for his first fight with the rigged weapons. Murle was waiting, and announced to the crowd that the weapons were fake.

My dad laughed. “And everyone started chanting, ‘Hang’im. Hang’im. Hang’im,’” my dad said.

Murle nodded.

“And when I turned around, he was gone,” Murle deadpanned. “Disappeared.”

“I did see him a few months later over at [another pit] Texoma. I told him enough time had passed if he wanted to come back. I don’t remember if he ever did.”

But before I can tell the story, a man walks into the pit and announces that the fights will start soon. Everyone starts to crowd around the pit as the first fights are called. I’m standing in the middle of them.

TJ and Gavin have two groups of roosters in the derby. Having lost their first fight, they’ll have to win four straight with their second group of roosters to win the derby. They win the first three fights of the second group, and have only one more to win. If they do, they’ll purse between  $2,000 and $8,000, depending on how many fighters win four in a row.

TJ removes the last bird from the wooden carrying stall and places it in a portable folding cage to stretch as Gavin lays out supplies and selects the knife. The rooster, a cherry-red bird with coal-colored legs, is the prettiest one today, we all agree. When Gavin is ready, the two begin to tie the knife – a ritual that I liked to perform as teenager. Now, for the first time in years, I realize just how much I miss preparing gamecocks for what they love to do: fight. I wish they would let me help. When the rooster is ready, we walk to the pit. Being in the entourage gives me little comfort. I want to be a part of it, but I’m not. On our farm, I trained our birds, rising before dawn each day to prepare my cocks to become champions. All I am now is a bystander to a way of life that once meant everything to me

As Gavin weighs the rooster, we find a spot along the pit and wait. The two fighters enter the arena with the referee. Their opponent carries a sunflower-colored rooster with pearl legs. The bets favor Gavin’s red bird, which we take as a good omen. The two fighters flash the birds in the center of the arena, back up and pit.

After two ferocious clashes, the fight is over. Gavin lifts the red rooster, which falls limp in his hand, and turns him over to reveal a 6-inch gash along the bird’s chest. They exit the arena. Gavin and TJ, with me and the rest of their entourage in tow, walk back to the camp.

As we walk, TJ turns to me and asks if I’m learning anything.

I’d been thinking about that question ever since I decided to step back into the world of cockfighting, a world that shaped and defined me as a youth, and taught me lessons that have stuck with me ever since. Dad’s voice: Do your chores, raise them right and put in all the work you can to give them their best shot, has remained lodged in my head ever since I left the game. As a journalist, I struggle every time I sit down to write a story (including this one) because in laying down every word, every sentence, I feel obliged to give it my “best shot.” I don’t always succeed, but I try to give each story my “best shot.”

Besides my dad, many other cockfighters – the ones who won and the ones who lost – taught me lessons that haven’t left me either: lessons about patience, about determination. Others taught me to believe in human potential simply by witnessing their unflinching faith in their roosters flailing away in the pit.

So when TJ asked me if I’m “learning anything,” I stumble momentarily to answer. I learned that in going underground, cockfighting has radically changed. It has lost many of the grams and grandpas, moms and dads, children and grandchildren that once attended the games. It’s always been a sport for diehards, for the defiant, but cockfighting as a wholesome family tradition on the farms of the Southwest is gone, probably forever. What remains is merely a facsimile of what it used to be, a fading remnant of its glory days.

At the brush fight with Gavin and TJ, I’ve also learned something valuable about myself. I learned that I’ve changed. I’m no longer a cockfighter. Did I have fun? You bet I did, and I’d probably go back if given the chance. But I could never again squeeze myself into my old cockfighting shoes and toss a rooster down to fight with the pride I once had. That zeal, that devotion to the game, has disappeared as surely as my youth. What I’m left with are my memories – of feeding and watering my beloved birds as the dew soaked through my socks and shoes on our tiny patch of Texas countryside, of hanging on every word my grandpa and my dad taught me about cockfighting, of the old church ladies placing bets on my behalf, of Mom scolding me for wagering on roosters but letting me keep my winnings. Those memories I will cherish and cling to for as long as my memory holds.

But I don’t feel up to sharing all these thoughts with TJ. I’m not sure he’d want to hear them. All I say is, “I think a lot has changed.”

He stops walking and points his finger at me. “Nothing’s changed,” he says. “Only, we don’t have the right to do it anymore.”
