Default Bob Reilly: “I Single-Handedly Kept MMA Out Of New York”

http://steverattlesnake.cliquezone.c...ut-of-new-york

Can you point to a specific piece of legislation that has benefited the taxpayers of New York State?

Bob: Reilly: Probably the single effort that I did, and I won’t say that it’s the most important, is my single effort to keep ultimate fighting(MMA) out of New York State. And why those who advocate this violent and vicious sport for the reason that it will bring money to this state, I, in fact, claim it will not. The owners of ultimate fighting who have recently spent $174,000, giving that money to various legislators and political parties and have paid their lobbyists $10,000 a month for a number of years are in fact in bankruptcy court in Las Vegas at this very moment to the tune of $7 billion. These are the people who some people advocate bringing in to New York. I’m proud of the fact that almost single-handedly I have kept this out of New York not only because violence begets violence and it’s not what we should have in our state, but also it ultimately saves us money by not having this sport in New York.

Station Casinos and Zuffa entertainment are separate entities, nice try Bob.

Liberal politicians like this douche crack me up. Heaven forbid anybody with an (R) behind their name bring morality into the discussion when we are talking about abortion or gay marriage, but it's okay for this tool to question the morality of an organized sport like MMA.

Here is another tidbit from captain douchebag, found on his website

He also cites a poll that shows over 60% of New Yorkers don't want the sport legalized. I think those numbers would be drastically different if they had a really popular champion from New York. Then MMA would probably be the greatest thing since sliced bread. I also think you have an influx of old timers who are Boxing purists and hate MMA in that part of the country. MMA will eventually be in New York, and I hope Dana sends this douche some free tickets when the UFC lands in Madison Square Garden.

Dont tempt me

I want to know how many events he has attended. One presumes he has first hand knowledge of MMA if he knows it to be uncivilized...how does he know...I presume a Government Official would never take hearsay without seeing for himself exactly what goes on.

I presume...when it was first put to him he travelled to a nearby state, attended the event, and was able (because he identified who he was) to go back stage and talk to those involved, including the athletes, the medics, and the Refs...

You wouldnt make a fool out of your position as a State Representative without doing research would you?? Research you cant get from watching a DVD of MMA as it was like 15 years ago...

The fact he tries to denude one of the most civilized Cultures on the planet is enough to make me think he doesnt bother researching what he's talking about. I remember he compared MMA to Gladiatorial Battles, and then told us that his society (built on a direct offshoot from Rome itself) would never tollerate such barbarism.

Where does he think his Highways were invented? Viaducts, Aquaducts, Sewerage systems, the bloody toilet he poops into? All products of an "uncivilized" society?? I suppose he thinks most of the Roman Gladiators during a Ludi died to?? He's stupid because he doesnt bother to check his facts.

Without Roman Civilization, he wouldnt be where he is! He wouldnt have the job he has (Where does he think the term Senator comes from, who does he think invented The Republic???) When the Roman Empire collapsed, the English went into 500 years of what we call "the dark ages" because we couldnt do what the Romans did...we couldnt build like them, we couldnt organize our societies like they did.

If he bothered to even do a google search on Gladiatorial Battles he'd discover that it was really only the main event that ended with a ritual sacrifice...and that noone deliberatley died actually IN combat...it was more a ritual execution AFTER the fight...does he know his Country executes people against their wills?? Does he realize that a fallen Gladiator wishes for death?? Does he not understand that the mass reconstructions in the Ludi were NOT common, and when they took place actually gave convicted criminals the chance to escape a death sentance if they were skilled fighters?? if they get killed, its nothing short of state execution...something HIS Country is involved in!! Does he not realize that probably a third of Gladiators were made through career choices?? Chosen as an occupation??

if the guy cant understand VERY basic and easily accessable History concerning the Gladiators...no ****ing wonder he cant figure Mixed Martial arts out

Also...his most basic presmise "violence begets violence" is untrue. There is equal ammounts of data that suggest that watching violence can release pent up aggression actively diminishing actual violence. The guys a nutjob...I bloody hope that he does some of his other duties better then his efforts at fighting this cause

at least make a reasonable argument based on fact. He's lazy and thus he's stupid.
