    Animals are property. It's why we can eat them. And I'm not sure that our overbearing sexual predator laws make a good basis for other aggressive government tactics. Once Vick has completed his punishment, he should be free once again to own a dog. You can't punish him for things he may do in the future; only for that which he has already done.

    LOL. However, after Vick has served his sentence, it is behind him, not in front of him.

    why not?

    convicted felons are not allowed to have guns

    convicted child molestors are not allowed to live within a certain distance from schools

    we already put many restrictions on criminals after they have paid their dues. how is this any different?

    Because a court did not impose it on him. Neither does the law. In the other cases, either a court has imposed it, or it is mandated by statute.

    Part of me agrees with you. But I do see dogs as more than property. They live. And I would be opposed to him treating a cow the way he did those dogs. One measure of a people is how they treat animals,IMHO, and what he did was inhumane, if not down right evil.

    Now, he pauid his debt (which had more to do with gambling than punishment for the dogs he abused and killed), but I'm not sure I would like to see him as a dog onwner again. It just seems like a bad idea, whether we have the right to stop him or not.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    because that's the way the system currently is doesn't answer the question of how denying Vick dog ownership is any different, fundamentally, than denying a convicted felon gun ownership.

    personally I don't give a rat's ass. If Vick wants a dog let him get a dog.

    he is stupid to raise this matter now instead of simply waiting til june 2012 and getting whatever dog he wants
    Absolutely stupid on his part. I can't believe he is whining now. He got a second chance with his football career. Is playing great. Getting the big paychecks.

    And now he has the audacity to cry about wanting a puppy now instead of doing his time. I was wrong about him. Initially I supported this guy and thought he might back up his words of feeling remorse. But now it is revealed he is like every con who finds god in prison.

    To hell with him. I hope the Eagles get dumped on their butts this weekend.
    The Eagles play the Giants this weekend. Go Giants and sack the quarterback.
