The Unanswered………

In August of 2013 I posted an entry titled “Got Some ‘Splaining’ To Do…………..” and here we are January 2014 and the “humane advocate protectors” have yet to explain themselves – what are they afraid of -The TRUTH?

No "labels" for those who speak truthfully

Last night I was thinking that 2014 should be the year the labels we in the greyhound world have bestowed on each other be removed.
Years ago wonderful folks started an adoption effort and wanted to just focus on the greyhounds, not politics. They felt it would be best to be beige. Shortly thereafter those who chose to force adoption to be about politics bastardized the beige term and decried that “silence is acceptance”.

I realize there are individuals who are not for greyhound racing but those same individuals do not support the “humane advocate protectors” who lie, cheat and smear to wipe greyhound racing and the people who are involved in it off the face of the earth. Just because someone is not interested in a sport or do not participate in a sport, does not mean they should be labeled "anti". And those who enjoy beige need to be aware that while in their hearts the adoption of ex-racing greyhounds is what's most important to them, the company they keep and the organizations they support can cast doubt as to their degree of beige.

In 2014, let us remove the labels and get to what matters - truth.

If the truth is not spoken then what other choice can it be than a lie?

It is OK for all to have personal opinions, but don’t present personal opinion as fact. 

Who is willing to join and remove the weight of labels?

Who cares enough to speak truthfully about greyhounds and shun those who have manipulated the truth and the greyhounds for their personal gain?

Who agrees there is no room for lies and liars in greyhound advocacy/wefare/racing/adoption?

The greyhounds will be the biggest winners if we ignore and no longer accept, associate with and support organizations and individuals unable to speak truthfully from the welfare, advocacy, adoption and racing communities.

Anyone who has purchased bottled water at the airport knows it is overpriced. Tired of paying inflated prices inflicted on a captive consumer, I got myself a Bubi collapsible water bottle. I had no idea that this nifty gizmo existed! Now I take my collapsed Bubi into the airport club (or to the gym), fill it with fresh filtered water and off I go. No more price gouging. No more money tossed away on overpriced bottles of water sold by the service providers at the airport. I am happy to be an informed consumer.

Think about it – the greyhound world has been gouged for years by “humane advocate protectors” who are out to get every penny they can out of the unknowing public. They claim to have been the only reason for "X", but after years of pocketing thousands upon thousands of dollars they have nothing to show for it, aside from all the salaries and other personal perks that your donation dollars can provide.

Stop getting gouged. 

Start being an "informed consumer".

Send donation dollars to programs that speak truthfully and actually accomplish what they say they will do.

Just the Stats…………..

Prior to each flight  I use an app to check my flights and I've noticed that my flights list both direct mileage and planned flight mileage but my frequent flyer account only gets credit for the direct mileage and not actual mileage. The planned flight mileage is always greater than the direct. While my account says I flew 110,000 miles last year, in reality it was much more than that.

In the greyhound world, many are noticing that the “humane advocate protectors” like to publish reports (do keep in mind that reports they generate are custom tailored by them to reflect only what they want) which often times do not include all the actuals. Why would they hide the actual, be it numbers, facts or true story? Has an uninterested/uninvolved/unconnected third party with no agenda ever been allowed to review these reports and all data they have collected?

If claiming to provide the public with the "truth" on a subject and at same time attaching a "donate" button, one would think “humane advocate protectors” would publish all the data they claim to have and itemize the amount of donated money they spend so that the public can be fully informed.

Misleading the public with manipulated reports or one-sided presentation of facts is in essence lying to the public.

In 2014 ignore the “humane advocate protector” magician – demand the truth!

Negate me not................

“Once you label me you negate me.” 
― Søren Kierkegaard

The greyhound welfare, advocacy, adoption and racing world would be better suited if we removed the labels anti, pro, and neutral and just all agreed to speak only truthfully – those who can’t tell the truth will soon be negated!

Negate me not – I will only speak truthfully for the greyhounds – Rory S. Goree’
