New Meaning On Hen-Pecked

Punchbuggy mentions how South Carolina has lost its mind.

Seems that for now, cockfighting is a felony, while domestic violence is only a misdemeanor.

In fact, one outspoken blowhard, . Rep. John Graham Altman (R-Dist. 119-Charleston) [from which I am ASHAMED to say I enjoyed living for 11 years] had the following to say when pressed about the issue:

Rep. Altman responds to the comparison, “People who compare the two are not very smart and if you don’t understand the difference, Ms. Gormley, between trying to ban the savage practice of watching chickens trying to kill each other and protecting people rights in CDV statutes, I’ll never be able to explain it to you in a 100 years ma’am.”

News 10 reporter Kara Gormley asked Altman, “That’s fine if you feel you will never be able to explain it to me, but my question to you is: does that show that we are valuing a gamecock’s life over a woman’s life?”

Altman again, “You’re really not very bright and I realize you are not accustomed to this, but I’m accustomed to reporters having a better sense of depth of things and you’re asking this question to me would indicate you can’t understand the answer. To ask the question is to demonstrate an enormous amount of ignorance. I’m not trying to be rude or hostile, I’m telling you.”

Gormley, “It’s rude when you tell someone they are not very bright.”

Altman, “You’re not very bright and you’ll just have to live with that.”

Since domestic violence is only a misdemeanor, maybe Ms. Gormley should have gone over and beaten some sense into this arrogant asshat. I sincerely hope this is not the way governments across the nation are heading, where representatives are (1) ignoring or belittling serious issues concerning human life and (2) so arrogant to flagrantly demean other humans. That’s a kind of violence in its own right.

Maybe Rep. Altman needs some sensitivity training. Or maybe he just needs to get a clue. Tis better for 1,000,000 roosters to die in cockfights than the life of one woman be lost due to inaction from state legislators.
