While I'm sure there were some callus horse owners there were likely more that treated their steeds with kindness and affection. In the big picture there are no oil wars or pollution issues from horses like there are from perto-power. Sorry to see the horses go.


Next on the block is Aqueduct racetrack in Queens. The Casino interests have huge designs for an "honest graft" project down there and it will be easy to play the high moral ground "Whole Foods" card to justify the elimination of horse racing in NYC. The profits from the casino will be immense and nothing will stop that project as Aqueduct is likely the largest developable tract of land in the outer boroughs. This is a huge graft project for Cuomo as he is the point man for the Malaysian Casino interest developing this project. It is the linchpin in his political empire as the backdoor money from Malaysia largely will fill his reelection coffers to pay for the commercials to bend the minds of the masses to ensure his reelection.

why is it that everybody who is so wrong all the time lead with this abortion crap. You just prove what
a complete wacko you are bringing abortion into this very legitimate argument.

de Blasio banning horse carriages have nothing to do with animal-rights abuse and everything to do with a power land grab-

Many times i find tree huggers amusing. But on the other hand someone has to take care of that part. Global warming is no joke. Though Minnesota is hitting very frigid temperatures right now. NYC is like Sahara compared to Minnesota.
