GDummierBush did just that and you don't and didn't hear much criticism of that administration from the southern states, especially Georgia. There are some who are still convinced that GDubbya is a smart man. He is irrelevant now but should go to jail for his crimes and for being so dumb.

Michael has paid dearly for his crime so let him be and address some of the more pressing issues of our times.

I know right its ridiculous. I had 2 cousins to get killed in the war

someone could have posted "Michael Vick" --- and nothing else --- and this thread would have gone the same way.

I personally can't wait to see him back in action, and see if he still has it. I couldn't care less about his personal life, or what he did to get put in jail. It didn't affect me one bit, none of my dogs got killed, so I don't give a $hit. I love watching the man play football, period.

And I'm WHITE BTW.

I get so sick of people coming down on Michael Vick...he was involved in Dog fighting. Get over it! To me it's not that serious. I mean don't get me wrong I'm a dog lover just like the next person. Take a look at the man on wall street that stole billions of dollars from people and all he got was house arrest. Can you believe it. BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND ALL YOU GET IS HOUSE ARREST. Mike has a few dog fights in his own back yard and he goes to jail for years, loses a bunch of endorsments, looking to file bancrupty. That is crazy! We're in the middle of a ridiculous war that people...yes people are dying everyday...but I bet those PETA people are cool with that. Hurry home Michael!!

BuckheadBetty1, they have another person that has stolen BILLIONS too: SEC charges Texas financier with 'massive' fraud | ajc.com (http://www.ajc.com/business/content/shared-gen/ap/Finance_General/Stanford_SEC_Charges.html - broken link) I beat he'll be on house arrest too getting his massages and eating fine food while he figures out where and how to keep the money he stole.

Not to be a fact checker - but Madoff has not been to trial nor sentenced - Mike was free as well before he was convicted and sentenced ---Madoff will never see the light of day after he is sentenced. We are in the middle of a war - but we have a volunteer military - if we still had the draft you would have a great point.

I would encourage you to go watch a pit bull fight---if you can find one. You may think it is 'just dogs' - but watch one, see who attends, and then make a judgement.

go Mike.

The crazy thing about this is that some people think that Mike should be sentenced to lethal injection or tortured. When I was in TN some lady actually told me that Mike needs to be set on fire, I was like "Hold up now"; I like dogs and own one but draw the line somewhere.
