A Modest Proposal
By Lyn Kalinoski

Each year, several thousand hopefuls run for political office in the
United States. Sadly one half of these will fail to find a sinecure
or will be thrown out of office due to term limits or voter disapproval.

The communities in this country cannot absorb these unwanted
political wannabbes any longer as we already have a surfeit of
candidates for the jobs available. Political parties, school boards,
lobbying associations are bursting at the seams with these poor
unwanted folk and something must be done to relieve the growing
numbers of candidates which puts so much pressure on society.

Therefore to give every politician a chance at finding a permanent
home, I propose that all politicians be spayed or neutered. This will
reduce the frivolous and hopeless candidacies and give much needed
surcease to the American public who are overwhelmed by the sheer
numbers of political ads which daily invade our homes on television,
radio, the internet and even through computer generated messages on our
phones.

A drastic remedy you say? Let's look at the good things such
legislation would do.

Left unspayed and unneutered, politicians propagate far beyond the
capacity of the community to accommodate them. There are only limited
homes available for would be politicians and too many young and vital
politicians wind up turning elsewhere while the old guard hangs on.
The financial and emotional cost to voters is extreme watching young
and healthy politicians struggle to gain office as voters sit through
endless campaigns that begin again as soon as the election night
results are tabulated.

Legislation requiring spaying and neutering of politicians is a
reasonable, effective and necessary means to greatly reduce the
number of unwanted candidates. Early spaying and neutering would
protect and improve the health and safety of voters by reducing or
eliminating endless exposure to political advertising, especially
negative advertising which is at epidemic rates.

Spaying and neutering also results in significant public health and
safety benefits, particularly in the reduction of dangers caused by
roaming politicians kissing babies and small children, and
glad-handing all and sundry who come into their purview. Reducing the
number of unwanted politicians in the US will necessarily reduce the
costs associated with caring for displaced pols who have been voted
out of office and now are appointed by friends in power to state
boards. This practice of creating innumerable positions reimbursed
from public funds to allow the defeated to collect both their public
pension and a salary or stipend is unhealthy and deleterious to the
public welfare.

A Politician Spay/Neuter Act will save millions of
taxpayer dollars in unnecessary salaries for defeated politicians,
reduce the ennui caused by endless political campaigns, secure a home
for every aspiring politician, reduce vicious innuendo and smear
campaigns due to competition and safeguard our communities from
over-population of politicians.

This poor attempt at satire, plagiating Swift, shows that some dog owners seem to have trouble with separating man and animal, trouble with accepting that dogs are animals and not humans.

To be honest, I don't understand what point "Lyn Kalinoski" is trying to get across.

Man and dog is not the same.

Her butchering of Swift's work doesn't make the case any stronger, either.

I find it humorous by itself without knowing it was written in response to the AB 1634 bill.

Do you guys understand that PETA, The Humane Society of the United States want to end all pet ownership? They want to end all pet home breeding. Home breeding is what keeps all cat and dog breeds robust. They are going to do this with laws like this. They want all animal farming ended. They want all domestic animals to stop being bred by man. They want all zoo's eliminated. They don't spend one red cent on animal welfare. they just euthanasize healthy animals and throw them in dumpsters in Virginia. "PETA".

Yup, that has been brought up a few times. The HSUS is currently under investigation for taking donations they said were going to help the displaced animals from Katrina which are unaccounted for. And recently the solicited donation under the guise they would be for the car of the dogs seized from Vick, and they had nothing to do with the care of those dogs. They changed their website after that, but who knows how much money they collected from people who thought they were helping?  Undecided

The American Humane Society is a legit organization that helps animals in need. The Humane Society of the United States and PETA aren't. IMHO. Those other animal rights organizations have an agenda that has nothing to do with helping animals. What they care about is publicity and filling their coffers and the bigwigs like Wayne Pacelle lining his pockets.
