Not just from the questions about the horses dieing early this week in a polo match but the sport itself is in trouble. In many ways, this year’s Kentucky Derby, just 11 days away, will be a horse of a different color. The actual two minutes of racing should not be a departure from the past. There will be a large field. The start will be a cavalry charge. The best horse may or may not win, depending on jockey pilot success in finding a crack in the usual Great Wall of Churchill that the horses create as they turn for home. Other similarities will remain. The mint juleps will taste like medicine and be overpriced. New boundaries, in design and common sense, will be pushed in women’s hats. And, within 30 seconds of the winner’s crossing the finish line, the horse’s connections will be asked about winning a Triple Crown. Indeed, the Derby is the happiest time of the year for racing. But then, this year’s especially needs to be, because much in the sport leading up to it hasn’t been a belly laugh. Here’s a scorecard of current-day horse racing: Item: Hollywood Park’s summer meeting begins Wednesday and […]
- Animal Rights
The reason ALOP.org started was to help people understand that animals are our partners not for food and fun. They have feelings just like us and there is plenty of other ways to live awesomely without killing them especially in the inhumane psychotic ways we do now. We have found another focus and it will be last chance ranches, all donations will go directly to these rescue sanctuaries around. These amazing places house animals that would normally be killed. We have been to several all over the world and every time a tear nearly forms from the love for animals that no one else wants or where abused. We feel there is no greater service in the animal community than these and they deserve all the help they can get. We will be doing posts for a new rescue sanctuary each month and details on how to contribute directly. All donations to ALOP will also be distributed to these places less a small amount we use to promote the website. If you have a last chance ranch in your town go visit them, most are homes for people as well as animals and most like to have events and fund raisers. I […]
In a world where it is known that eating the meat and flesh of an animal is not healthy. Why would we still eat meat? It’s an interesting physiological study. As natural selection comes into play, all species do what is best to survive without even knowing it. Yet humans with the knowledge to survive better choose to do things that hinder their ability to survive by consuming poisons and causing self inflicted stress. The only logical conclusion to this behavior is ego, the need to feel all mighty and in some cases invincible. The study of why people do drugs knowing it will hurt them is often chalked up as a way to escape or test their need to survive. We also see this often with extreme sports and wild tasks to tests one’s strength and survival ability. These risks that have become a common part of modern day society have no relevance in better survival and only effect the person doing the act. Some might say they did this extreme act to inspire people to do more. This would only perpetuate more people doing things that would risk their survival. Really this is just a excuse to not have to forwardly […]

A New York based artist just release his latest work that includes Disney characters in real life scenarios. The animal ones really resonated here at ALOP. Just amazing and surprisingly real feeling in our hearts. We only hope this will help people get the perspective they need to stop game hunting and treating animals in such a horrible way. Abusing animals does not make you stronger it only shows your weakness.
